yet another super comfy margiela boot
just as with all of my other 6 pairs of maison martin margiela boots/shoes/booties, i am in love with this pair as well. i do have one regret...i tried these on in the store and thought they ran a bit smaller than usual. i am, always, a size 37. as a result, i ordered the 37.5, and found that I could have and probably should have ordered the 37. no worries, though...i put in some extra comfy inserts and ta-da....extra cushion. what i love about these, is what i love about all of my margiela shoes....no matter how high or sexy the heel might be, i can still easily walk several NYC blocks without feeling any pain. now that is worth the money. even better? NYC sidewalks/subway stairs/sidelwalk grates, can really ruin the leather finish. not to worry with these, they are pre-scuffed and look even better when "worn". the sole of the shoe gives it an interesting edge as well.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

if they were true to size...would LOVE
sadly, i love these shorts, only they are extremely baggy. i typically wear a 0. bought the 0, and they hang off my hips. i still wear them, but am forced to style them a bit differently than if they fit as pictured. i wanted a much more tailored look and, instead, have to opt for a more casual outfit due to the baggy fit.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

LOVE!
this was my first Alexander Wang purchase and it did not disappoint. the cut and fall of the vest is absolutely perfect. i wore it with a turtleneck, shorts, leggings and over-the-knee boots and the proportions were spot on. no regrets on this purchase.

comfy!
i've been looking for a pair of flat, over-the-knee boots and these did not disappoint. i bought them in black, and i love the color because it's a slightly faded black. my size is either a 7 or 7.5 depending on the designer. i bought these in a 7.5 and had enough room to put an insert in the bottom of the shoe. given i had that much room, i could have bought the 7 and it would have fit. however, i walk everywhere, so the insert probably makes a huuuge difference. i can walk around NYC all day without achy feet. given all the snow/rain we've been getting, i wear these often and am a big fan. i don't think they look working girl in the back, the lace-up is so small and is practically hidden by the creases from hitting at the back of my knee. i'm also "short" at 5'4" and the top of the boot hits just above the top of my knee.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

want it in every color!
i love this sweater. it's flattering, soft, and warm without being bulky so my arms don't look too big. the arm length is fabulous! (note: i love extra-long long sleeves) after purchasing the one in grey, i definitely want the other two colors as well.
