I wasn't sure if this jacket was going to work on my frame, but I was pleasantly surprised. I am 5'1, 115lbs and I ordered this jacket in a size 36. The fit is loose and billowy, but it is not overwhelming. The hem hits around the top of my hip bone. The material is light and gauzy - perfect for a breezy summer evening over a tank top. And the design is really different and feminine -you won't see anything like it on anyone else! The floral design is woven into the fabric and has a delicate, antique quality to it. The sleeves are very full and have elastic cuffs - you can wear the sleeves at your wrists or up around your elbow (I think it looks best around the elbows, as shown on the model). My jacket arrived ridiculously wrinkled - it looked much better once I ironed it out, but it also looks nice with a little crinkle in the fabric. I'm really glad I bought this - I had been thinking about it for a long time and finally ordered when it went on sale. Definitely worth it!

Disappointing
I love Clover Canyon, but this top didn't meet my expectations. It is only available "one size fits all" and that size doesn't work at all for smaller people. I am 5'1, 115 lbs and the back of this top came almost down to the backs of my knees. It was also way too wide - too much material overall to be flattering. And the pattern, which looks so gorgeous in the photo on the website, is much brighter and crisper in person - for me that was not a good thing. I was swimming in this top, and sent it back. In regular Clover Canyon sizes I wear a small. I wish they had sized this top s-m-l as well!

You won't see a top like this everywhere you go....I love how unique Clover Canyon clothes are, and this top is no exception! I am 5'1 and about 110 pounds, and I have this top in an extra small. It skims the body without being too billowy, and is slimming even though it is not tight-fitting. The top shown here on the model seems more transparent than mine - the top is definitely semi-sheer and you will want to wear a cami under it, but its not completely see-through. I usually wear a navy blue camp under mine, but there are many colors that would work (black, white, orange....). The back of the top is longer than the front - I thought I wouldn't like that at first, but in fact it makes your silhouette long and slim (a plus for me at 5'1) and it keeps the top from looking too boxy. I travel a lot and this top has become part of my flying uniform along with black skinny jeans and flats. The fabric is soft and doesn't wrinkle, and it always looks fresh.

Cuter than the photos let on
This dress is a lot cuter than the photos on this website let on - I am 5'1 and about 110 pounds and I have this dress in a size small (the XS fit, but was a little short and a little narrow in the shoulders). The dress looks neater in person and has a nice, relaxed look that isn't too slouchy or sloppy. A great dress for day or even a casual night out; and it looks great with wedges or flats. Nice silky cool fabric too!

Disappointing
I LOVE Vince clothes, so I was looking forward to receiving my first pair of Vince shoes. Unfortunately, they were a huge disappointment. These espadrille-style shoes are made of thin, low-quality leather that I am sure would stretch out unflatteringly after one wearing. The leather is sewn unevenly to the sole of the shoe, resulting in a "lumpy" look that feels strange on your feet as well. They also have an odd fit, and seem to run big. While I realize these shoes are only $150, they are extremely poor quality, and I expected more from Vince.

Strange Fit...
I have a lot of Soft Joie clothes and I really love the way they feel and fit. This dress, however, is the one exception. The fabric is not particularly soft - very odd for Soft Joie. My biggest problem, however, is the fit: the skirt is close-fitting, which is fine, but the top is very big and blousey, which looks strange with the close fitting skirt. There is way too much fabric on top to look balanced with the bottom. I am 5'1 and about 108lbs and the size small just didn't look right on me (I normally wear an extra small or small in Soft Joie). I don't think the extra small would work either because the skirt would probably be too tight. The proportions on this dress are off - if the top fit better I would have kept it, but this is going back. This dress might look better on a taller person - some height might help the top look less voluminous.

Cute and Comfy
I ordered these booties in green and they are adorable! I am also happy to say that they are very comfortable - even though they have a fairly high heel, the platform balances out the height and the instep is not steep at all. I wear a 6.5-7 depending on the manufacturer - I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly. These shoes are great with jeans or with tights and a casual dress or sporty skirt. They are sort of like funky, dressy sneakers - a nice change from the boots I wear all winter. I am used to wearing high-quality designer shoes (mostly Prada, Fendi and Chanel), but I find these shoes to be very well made and durable at a terrific price point! The shoes arrived with a spare set of shoelaces; for a different look you could buy different laces and change them out. I love these booties so much I am considering ordering another pair - I can't decide between blue or black!

Thalia Tee - Another Cute Soft Joie Top!
The Thalia Tee is typical Soft Joie - it is very cute, has a loose yet flattering fit, and is made of wonderfully soft fabric. The shirred detail at the neckline is really nice. The color is a little drab - I wish it was offered in other colors - but everything else about it is great and it looks really good with a black cardi. I am 5'1, @110 pounds and the XS fits perfectly. Love it!

Great Top!
This Soft Joie top did not disappoint - it is super soft, has a loose yet slimming fit and is perfect for tossing on over a pair shorts or skinny jeans. I have several tops and pants by Joie and they are always well-made and very wearable - this top is as well. I am 5'1 and about 110 pounds - I ordered a size XS (my standard Soft Joie size) and it fits perfectly. I know this top will be a big part of my wardrobe.

Great Casual Sweater
I have this awesome sweater in Nutmeg - it has a comfy, loose fit that doesn't make you look frumpy. I am petite - 5'1 and about 105 pounds - and I got a size XS. The fit is relaxed, but not sloppy or overwhelming. The front hem of the sweater is higher than the back, which at first I thought would be strange but after wearing it I really like it. It looks really cute with a contrasting tank top underneath. The only problem I have is that after a few wears the wool has begun to pill, but that is easily remedied. LOVE it!
