Runs very big even for Fryes
I have two other pairs of Frye boots (Engineer and Carmen) in 8.5 and they fit comfortably but well. This pair is longer in the foot. I would definitely size down. A half size down would probably work for me, but my foot is a little wide so narrow footed people may want to consider going down a full size. Other than that, the finish on the boot is beautiful--maybe a little more brown in real life and I was expecting more gray. It is slouchy which is cute. The front part of the sole is thicker than I expected, giving it a slightly clunky look. My brown Carmen three-strap is more flattering and will go with almost everything this boot would go with so I probably won't reorder if my size comes in.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Cute but a little heavy looking
I have tried these boots in both the 12R and 8R versions. I am 5'3" and the 8R were better for me since the 12R hit in an awkward place right at the bottom of the calf muscle and kind of made me look like I had cankles. Taller gals may prefer the 12R (I sold mine on ebay and almost recovered what I paid). These can look a little heavy and clunky but are cute when worn right--they're just not quite as versatile as I'd hoped. If you have a high arch like me they are a little difficult to get on as the prior reviewer described, but once on they are perfectly comfortable. I live in a snowy area and these are great for slushy days--and they hold up beautifully to nasty weather. They look great with boyfriend jeans and leggings, but not so good with skinnies where there's any bunching at the ankle (since I'm short most of my jeans bunch). Still a worthy purchase and get tons of compliments.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cheaply made
The style of this necklace is lovely, however it is cheaply made. I purchased at a higher price than it is currently and returned it. I could tell the clasp would not hold up over time--it did not line up properly and the spring mechanism would catch so it would not close. At the current price it may be worth it--just don't expect it to last too long.

Not a flattering fit
I was disappointed in this tee. It was not a flattering fit on my body. It was fitted in the bust and loose everywhere else, and bunched around the hip area. It might look better on a more boyish body type.

Meh...needs something
I ordered this in both a small and a medium. I tried the small first, and it was too big in the back waistline area on me. I'm pregnant so I need room to grow on the other side, not there! It would probably look even worse on my normal body. It fit reasonably well elsewhere, except for being too long, which at 5'3" is to be expected. I almost didn't try the medium, but it was oddly more flattering; it helped that it was a kind of loose everywhere rather that just at the waist. Still, it was kind of boring, and the racerback is not usually the most flattering style on me anyway so this went back. I guess I thought I'd try it since I thought it might work with my pregnancy.

Not flattering on a large bust
I had been wanting to try a Kain tee for awhile...but I knew it would be sheer so I thought it best to try a darker color first. It was still extremely sheer. It was also very long on me (I'm 5'3"). My biggest issue with this tee, however, was the position of the draped pocket, which in the photo appeared to be a nice detail. It sat right along the bottom of my boob and kind of went out sideways...not a nice look. It would probably work better on a flatter-chested gal. Oh well...now I know Kain, at least in this style, is not for me. I'm very happy about free returns.

Order down if you're not sure
I ordered this in a medium, I don't know why I didn't get the small. I think I was afraid it would be too small in the bust (I'm 34DD) and I'm pregnant so I needed some room to grow. A small would have been fine on me (even with room to grow), but on the size chart I am more of a medium--although small often fits me best. The straps especially were too long, it would have been nice if they were adjustable. At least in the medium, with the fabric, it looked a little too nightgowny for my taste...and not in a good way.

Great jeans!
I finally got a pair of Legacy jeans in my correct size (27), and I love them! I purchased the red leather, which is definitely more of the plum color pictured (this is what I was hoping for). The sheen is not too much so they are wearable for day. I think they will look great for spring with pale colored tops & shoes, and for now they look great with my winter gear. They are probably too heavy for the heat of summer but I never wear jeans then anyway. I love that they hug my curves all the way down to the ankles. I'm 5'3" and most "jeggings" are loose on me around the ankles. These do bunch a little but are still fitted which is nice. They feel very tight and hard to get on at first, but they conform to my body and are very comfortable to wear. They hold me in and smooth me out a bit where needed (around my upper thighs), which is not something I get from leggings. I will definitely buy R&S Legacy again!

Frustration!
I cannot begin to express my frustration with these shoes. I ordered an 8.5 and a 9. I could barely cram my foot into the 8.5 (my normal size) but my heel was slipping out of the 9. I compared them side by side and the only difference in the two sizes was in the forefoot--the rise to heel cup was exactly the same length. The toe box area on the 8.5 was much smaller and narrower--it looked like it belonged on a shoe 3 sizes smaller than the 9. I think PLV chintzed out on their sizing and used the same rear last on the 8.5 and the 9, but used a much smaller front last on the 8.5 to make up the difference in length. I imagine this will only be an issue with certain sizes. I could tell the 9 would have been very comfortable if my foot were just slightly longer! It had a lot of cushioning and did not feel as high as it is. The shoe is beautiful--it looks like a YSL Tribute...I wish it worked for me.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Too narrow in the toes
I got a screaming deal on these from another site (about 40% off) and I was so excited to receive them. I ordered an 8.5, my usual size. Alas, they were too small in the forefoot. My foot is somewhat wide in the front and I have a longer big toe, but the front of my foot was so scrunched in these! There was a lot of pressure on my last two toes. The ankle felt okay though, so it may just be the design of the shoe...they are more tapered/pointed than they appear in the photo. In the photo the point appears shorter, if you get my drift. I am not sure if a 9 would be better, but the site I ordered from only had 8.5 and I can't pay full price for a shoe I will only wear on special occasions. If they fit my foot they would be absolutely beautiful, and there is a lot of cushion in the footbed. Maybe I'm just not used to pointy shoes...I may wear them around the house to see if they break in a bit. Sigh.
