Cute but Mediocre
I'm a huge J Brand fan but these leggings just didn't quite do it for me. IMaybe it's because, with J Brand, I expect SO much more that these leggings just seem so mediocre. The color is gorgeous (I got the green) and the cut is quite flattering. But the material is rather thin and I doubt it will be very durable. They're cute, but I would not have bought them if they had not been on sale or if I had tried them in the store.

Half-Ladylike & Half-Rocker Necklace
I've always wanted a Fiona Paxton piece - the "full-metal" sort! But I wasn't sure if I could carry something like that off, so I opted for this half-metal, half-silk piece. I love the material and textural contrast. It's half lady-like and half-rock-and-roll. And I love the weight of it. The only gripe I have is that the chains are not terribly fine and have snagged some of my tops with the looser weaves. To protect my outfits (and my necklace) I have to deliberate exactly which ones I SHOULD NOT pair with my necklace. So while the necklace has a versatile design, it isn't that versatile to wear. Nonetheless, I love this Tulip necklace by Fiona Paxton and have no reservations about buying more of her designs.

Beautiful design Poor quality
This is a beautiful bangle - a clean, sculptural artistic piece of art. Pity then that the workmanship does not live up to its superior design. The inside edge of the bangle is sharp to touch and can be uncomfortable to push up on the forearm. Some of the "facets" were not flat due to the way the bangle was manufactured. On a design like this, these imperfections are distracting and disappointing. I am keeping the bangle because it IS a gorgeous design and, really, it is just too much of a hassle to return this as I am an international customer. But this is definitely not one of my favorite things by Marc by Marc Jacobs, and frankly - I would not have bought this if I had examined it closely in the store.

Everyday Jeans
These are great for days when I don't want to squoosh into a pair of skinnies, no matter how "comfortable" they are. Sometimes, we all just need a little air! The material is lightweight, the rise isn't too low and the overall silhouette still very flattering. It's my go to for "everyday" jeans.

Great pair of skinny jeans!
These are a great pair of jeans! They are flattering and SO comfortable. I ordered 2 sizes up from my normal size because I suspected that the high waist might mean a smaller cut. And I was right! It fit almost perfectly! (I imagine that sizing up one size might fit too - just a little more snug.) I'm only of average height so the jeans do bunch a little at my ankles. However, as they are super skinnies, I didn't need to have them taken up. Clocker is a deep indigo hue (much like Pure) that looks sleek and clean. Goes with everything! But be careful when wearing light colors! Clocker rubs off and it bleeds like nobody's business in the wash.

Great Basic - Comfortable & Forgiving
This is a great basic T to have in the closet. Goes with everything, super-comfy and so very forgiving. It also washes well, dries fast and doesn't require ironing. I usually wear a size 12 (10-14 depending on the brand and cut) and this T in sz L fit me perfectly. Very happy with my purchase! I wish there were more colors!
