Casual with a twist
I've worn this twice with leather pants similar to those in the picture and booties. It's a bit larger and roomier than I would have expected based on the picture, particularly around the middle wear a bit of contour would not have hurt, but it's comfortable, the wool is soft but not too hot, and the length and coverage is great. Overall, I'm pleased to have a new casual look. I plan to also try it with tights and over-the-knee black boots.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Striking
Super-soft, comfortable leather. No problem walking in them. They look good with socks and a skirt. They're versatile and can work as dress-down or somewhat dressy. Worth the purchase.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

A winter boot that actually has style
I struggle with finding winter boots that are functional but not ugly. A difficult combination. I'm really happy with these. The heel is high enough to be stylish but yet is very comfortable. I haven't had a chance to test how waterproof these are in true snowy conditions (I expect some snow will get through the laces in deeper snow) or in extreme cold conditions (they're not lined, so I would imagine some thick socks will be necessary when real winter arrives). I've read a lot of reviews suggesting that you should size down in these. I would not recommend that. I got my regular size and although they're roomy in the toe box, that's how a winter boot should fit for warmth - and also, to be able to fit thick socks. Overall, these are a hit for me.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great shoe
Comfortable, true to size, and fog is the perfect neutral to wear with greys, beiges and taupes...I'm happy. My only criticism is that it's a bit picky to get in and out of since it lacks a zipper. But not a significant issue.

Fabulous!
Wore these out the other night and received lots of compliments. They were very comfortable and not at all heavy, even when dancing. They're just the right amount of striking without being over-the-top. Really happy with this purchase.

Funky
I'm really pleased with this skirt. A perfect and not-too-expensive way to enjoy the lumberjack/plaid trend as the pattern is not too bold. The cut is a bit unusual - it's not purely A-line but has a slight bump out at the hip - and the just below-the-knee-length gives it a kind of a 1950's feel. It's fine for me (I'm 5'8"). The material is a thick cotton (unlined) but I didn't find it too heavy. However, do not size down if your waist is a bit smaller proportionate to your hips. I'm a 6-8 in pants/skirts and I can JUST get the M over my hips. The waist fits fine. No hesitation recommending.

Fun way to colour block
Thick material but nicely cut and nicely made. Tibi runs large so I sized down. Agree with previous reviewer's comment about the pockets. A great way to do the colour-blocking trend!

Great summer work dress
Am very happy with this. Fits like regular Nanette Lepore and I agree that the picture does not do it justice; in the picture, the top is too large for the model and looks ill-fitting. In real life, it is quite fitted. The skirt may be too short for some workplaces depending on your height and corporate culture, and the top may be a bit low cut for the same reason. However, I paired it with a white blazer and a chunky necklace and got many compliments.

Fun style
I like the sculpted heel of this bootie. It's light weight and easy to walk in. Looks good with skinny pants. These aren't high quality (but fine at the sale price). Strangely, the right foot fit smallest but my left foot is my bigger foot. It also fits perhaps a half-size small.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Awesome shoes
So glad I purchased these. Comfortable despite the height, and they look great with skinny jeans. I'll get a lot of use out of them. Size 39 equals size 8.5, as expected.
