Classic Belt - Expect Lots of Mileage!
This is the first belt I purchased from DVF although I'm a fan and I love collecting DVF dresses. This double buckle is classic but different. Gold hardware brings the chic factor up a notch. The green nubuck and brown leather is a subtle play on color and texture, making this belt more interesting than if only one hue and material was used. My only complaint is that it's a bit smaller than described. Love it though and will definitely keep it!

Wrong Description, OK Jeans
The description was for a pair of red high-rise skinnies. In actuality, it was a mid-rise. I'm crazy for high rise at the moment, so I was disappointed to receive this. The red hue was more muted than in the photos, but a cute color nonetheless. The material was very soft and comfy. However, although I stuck to the same size as I usually wear of COH, this pair was a little too snug for my comfort. So so sad as I had high expectations for this pair of jeans....Still, I am keeping it as shipping it back is too much of a cost and hassle for me.

Scores high on hue and comfort
This is my first pair of COH jeans. I am a big fan of J Brand jeans and haven't bought any other brand since I had a taste of my first J Brands! I even abandoned my Seven For All Mankind jeans for them. With this pair of COHs, I was very attracted to the high waist, unique pocket details and the cool faded blue hue, so I decided to give it a go. These are not as stretchy as J Brand's high waist jeans, therefore, don't expect as clean a line as with J Brand skinnies, especially in the high waist area. However, the denim that COH uses for this pair of jeans feels much smoother and softer than any of my J Brands. It fit rather snug when I first tried it on and I was contemplating having it returned. But after some wear, it stretched out nicely and felt just about right. Did this pair of COHs convert me? I'm afraid not. I love the design so I'm keeping them, but I still feel that J Brand is unbeatable!

Expect Compliments!
The first time I wore a Fiona Paxton necklace out (it was a Tulip necklace), I got compliments from 2 complete strangers while riding the lift and just walking down the street, and then again from the sales staff at Marni where I was looking for more accessories. ^_^ Who doesn't love compliments? I jumped at the chance to own this Trina when it was on sale, and I'm VERY happy with it! It feels very heavy and luxurious, and tough and edgy at the same time. I especially appreciate the uniqueness of a very metallic necklace that sits on textile and looks furry because of its design. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

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.

Would not buy again
This pair of 7's is supposed to be high waist, but it really doesn't sit very high. The material is soft and comfortable, and the wash is gorgeous. But it has a huge flaw - it stretches out. At the beginning of the day, my jeans always look perfectly fitted and crisp. But by mid-day it would have stretched out, lost its shape and it would look sort of slouchy and baggy. These are supposed to be boot cuts! If I had wanted boyfriend jeans, I would have bought boyfriend jeans. Because of my poor experience with 7's, I have not purchased another pair since. (Instead, I have been completely won over by J Brand. Those jeans are worth every penny!)

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.
