cute, versatile dress
This dress is a really good design--the fabric is sheer, and it comes with a stretchy, comfortable little slip that is just as long as it needs to be. (It ends above mid-thigh.) The prettiest part of the dress is the hemline and how it moves. I plan to wear this with boots or heels, and it looks great with a little belt. I ordered the XS (petite) and my measurements are bust 33, waist 26. It fits really well. A bit of advice--remove the slip from the dress (it's snapped in) and put them on separately. I had a tough time getting the dress on with the slip attached.

soft and snuggly
I was a bit concerned about this sweater being itchy, but it isn't. It's soft and the extra wide collar is a nice touch. I like the hand-knit appearance and the wooden toggles--it looks like something you would wear in a log cabin. I ordered a P (petite) and it's not too tight, nor is it overly bulky. My measurements are bust:33, waist 26. It's just the right size to wear a layer underneath if necessary.

Beautiful crystals, eye-catching ring!
This ring is beautiful, and it fits perfectly without spinning around to the sides of my fingers despite the large size of the stones. (I find this often occurs with top-heavy rings, but not with this one!) The ring is very eye-catching, and has a rustic mystical charm to it. My only issue with the ring, as the previous reviewer stated, is that one of the prongs that holds the crystals in was loose. I just bent it a bit to make the crystal more secure, and it seems to be fine now. The crystals are natural, so they may be slightly wider on one end than the other, which could be why one side was a bit loose. Other than that--great ring!

beautiful, bold, striking
I really love this ring--it's large and bold. I always wear a size 6 ring on my middle finger, and I ordered a 6 in this ring. It's a bit loose, so I have to wear it on my index finger instead. I still had to keep it--it's so unusual and interesting. I do have skinny little fingers--it may be a better fit on other people with more "normal" fingers!

I bought this jacket in size P (petite) and it fits perfectly. My measurements are bust 33, waist 26. The color is gorgeous--it reminds me of a Spruce Tree--a deep, dark, rich green. I also have this jacket in the "raisin" color, which was my favorite jacket--this one will be right up there with it! I didn't want to pay full price for this jacket, because I knew there would be a heap of import taxes bringing it into Canada, but I'm glad I got it. This is one of those rare times where the cost was worth it. LOVE it!

This bracelet is beautiful, and I love that it's made from recycled materials. The owl is nicely detailed. The only issue I have with it is that the edges are a bit sharp at the ends of the wings. I don't know if all the bracelets are like this--hopefully it was just mine. Alkemie seems like a really cool company--I will definitely buy more of their jewellery.
