Beautiful - runs small!
Well-made and as intricate and lovely as the photos suggest. Beading has lovely drape, color and weight. Thong toe is comfortable, though thick. Received as a gift and very pleased. NOTE: Overall these run a 1/2 size to a FULL size small (I usually take a 9-9.5 and s-q-u-e-e-z-e-d into the 40) and pretty narrow, so size up accordingly..
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Nice, but not Amazing
Kind of on the fence about these, which was disappointing at the price point. The color and shape are of-the-moment and utterly chic, but the fabric is more than a couple notches down from the silk I was expecting. 5'9", 145lbs with a booty and the 8 fit fine (re: slouchy enough). The elastic waist is a bonus: can pull up when shirts are tucked to highlight the knot or slouch lower if layering a piece over and you don't want the knot poking out. Length is good - will likely need hemming if you are petite unless you intend on very high heels with these. Keeping, but this is the first Phillip Lim piece I have I'm not absolutely crazy for.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Beautiful sandals!
New shoe brand to me - but suprisingly beautiful, well-made and interesting/lovely on the foot. The back "lip" takes a little getting used to, but molds to the foot after a couple wears. Leather is pretty and rich looking for the price. True chocolate brown.

Lazy Day Sweater
Good quality sweater, no gaps in the pretty weave. Colour is true from the photos. I sized down to a Small (5'9", 145lbs, usually a size Medium in tops) on the advice of other shoppers and it's still a boxy, loose fit. I can easily layer a thick turtleneck under it with no problems. But if you're looking for a tight fit, I would think you'd have to size down 2 sizes. Overall happy with purchase - cozy and warm. Good lazy day sweater.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Perfect & Well-made
Easy and beautifully structured skirt, fabric is sturdy and good quality. The pleat holds its shape well. Length is flattering on 5'9" - hits mid--knee. Size 8 was good for work (145lbs with a booty), not too fitted.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Adorable
The perfect party dress. Not see-through, which was a big concern. Very flattering and sexy on an hourglass figure, however if you have a significant pooch, would avoid.

Be not afraid...
...of these very cute but odd looking pants. I bought the 30 (usually take a 29 jean due to small waist/curvy butt & hips but wanted to make sure it would fit - a good look as this has NO STRETCH) on deep sale in the hopes the inseam would be long enough (5'9"), no waist gap wuld occur because it would slouch forward as on the model AND the bottom leg would not be too tight on my thick calves (16"!). Achieved on all counts, and has the distinct advantage of looking "fashiony" on the front (and accentuating hips with the slouch, so if you are wide here, they may not be your thing), sexy/fitted at the back and thin enough to tuck into boots. Color is a true muted mustard-y/taupe as in the picture. Great sale score!

Awesome Jeans
Got these on sale and love them. Good quality and colours are vivid and bright. I'm 5'9" and about 145lbs and the 42 was a beautiful fit - no waist gap, flattering cut through butt/thighs & inseam long enough for heels at my height (!!!). Lightweight enough for summer with a tank, interesting colour mix with chunky neutral sweaters (and fine with thin tights) come winter. Recommended.
