Fab design but too delicate and too long
I was so excited when I ordered this sweater, but I was a little disappointed upon receiving it because it runs a bit long and threw off my sense of proportion when I tried it on, no matter how or what I wore it with. The orange motifs were brilliant and wonderful, and I so wish it fit better! I also found the knit to be extremely delicate. Any little brush against something or catch would make a pull. I decided that it was something I had to be too cautious of when I wore it... not worth the $ in the end.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Colors are better in person
Like all ALC items, these pants are really well made and the detailing is very nice. The colors are nicer in person--not as muted as in the photos. The sage color is very pretty, whilst the orange is brighter (bordering on fluorescent). I am a pretty standard 0, and usually ALC's size 0 is a bit tight on me. However, I did find that these pants seem to run a little large compared to other ALC pants I've tried on, and it definitely looks a tad more loose than on the model shown here. Not baggy, but more a relaxed fit rather than slim.

beautiful top
I am 5'1" and weigh 97lbs. I expected this top to be slightly loose fitting. What I did not expect was how beautiful this top is when worn. Because of the longer bit, the top flows when you walk--very dramatic in an avant garde sort of way. People definitely noticed! The arm holes are indeed cut a little bigger but it wasn't so much so that it looked obscene. Just be prepared that people will see a little bit of your bra from the side, which if you're wearing a nice bra, is actually very sexy. As for length, with my petite build, it definitely looked and worked better when I wore heels.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great shoe but...
A beautiful shoe and very well made. The shape of the heel and the low cut sides are excellent details. Needless to say, the red shade is fantastic. But I'm sending them back because the shape of the toe is a bit too 90s pointy for me. Just a tad too long and not enough toe cleavage to really make them a truly sexy shoe. Classic yes, sexy not quite.
