For big heads
These are beautiful. I love the matte black frames and the mirror lenses, which are a fairly subtle golden brownish pink, not super pink. The arms are fairly wide though, and they do slip off my head a bit. I don't have a small head - it's rather on the larger side I'd guess, so this may be a problem for some people. I'm going to keep them b/c I love the way they look, but they won't be my dancing/swimming, etc. sunglasses. The mirrors also look like they'll get beat-up, scratched pretty easily, but unless that effects my ability to see, I won't care.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Not like other stilettos
I have the Current/Elliott stiletto jean in the beige/red/blue plaid and they have become my favorites and fit me perfectly (I'm a 5'9" and wear a 29), so I was excited to get these. Even though both are classified as "stiletto" these fit totally differently. The waistband seems tighter compared to the hip area. Also, as other reviewers have mentioned the grey dots are not uniformly solid, and the distressing is accentuated in un-flattering regions (like the crotch), making them look a bit cheap. I had high hopes, but had to send them back.

hard to get on - and blisters
While I do think I ordered the right size, the way these are made make them soooo hard to get off. They're also tricky to pair with outfits (meaning that I learned again and again how hard they were to take off since I kept changing). After wearing them for a day I had a blister on the inside of the ball of my left foot, since the foot bed is rather narrow. I do think they will stretch though, so am sticking with the size I ordered. This pale pink/peach is probably best with bare legs, since with dark tights they kind of make your legs look short. I hope to wear them more in the spring.

thin fabric, snags easily
I adore Rachel Pally and own probably 40 pieces by her, but this is my first in the ribbed material. While it is comfortable and nice and long, beware that it's practically transparent and snags very easily. Within two hours of wearing the dress I had managed to snag it in 2 places, and wasn't able to pull the threads back in. I've never found RP's jersey to be this delicate (piling yes, but snagging rarely). I have to say that I probably won't be buying anything else in this ribbed jersey. It's just too hard to find the right thing to wear under it, and it's not as flattering. Too bad, because the shape and length of the dress is lovely.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Sub-standard quality
I wanted so much to love these. The style and color are wonderful, but I should have heeded the other reviewer, who mentioned how poorly made they are. I ordered one size up (a 30 instead of my usual 28/29) but the moment I put them on they ripped in three separate places along the seams on both sides of the hips. I know better than to try to squeeze myself into something that won't fit, but the fabric was so thin and the seams so weak that it had happened before I realized. Sadly, I had to return them and ended up getting green JBrand soft skinny twills instead.
