Undecided
I love the design, details, and quality of this boot. It fits true to U.S. sizing (although might be slightly narrow on the foot). However, from reading the description, I was concerned that they would be too large for my calves (which are slim. Not emaciated slim, but most boots are at least slightly too big at the calf on me and it takes a long time to find one that fits). And unfortunately, they are. It would not necessarily be a problem except that they seem to jut out to the side at an odd angle, which is exacerbated by how high they are (they are sort of a riding boot style at the top). I don't see it getting better as the leather at the ankle creases and slumps. So I'm not sure about keeping these...

Lovely Top
Wore this the other day and loved it. Although objectively a strange mixture of textures, somehow it all works when you have it on. Sheer with just the right about of glint, the cut is flattering and it looks great with jeans, shorts, or even skinny tailored pants. TTS for Rebecca Taylor. It's meant to be a looser, flowy fit, but I didn't find it billowy. I actually found it to be quite a flattering cut overall, including at the arms. I'm very happy with it.

Great once you get it on!
Based on the size guide, I bought a small, since I'm a 32D/34C. At first, I was very concerned that I wouldn't even be able to get it on! However, once I wriggled it on (luckily, without breaking any threads), It fit very well. The shape is great, didn't flatten me out, and it doesn't sag on the side without the strap. I'll be wearing it shortly under a flowy silk gown and while not particularly sexy, I think it will look much better than a strapless bra. There are three loops on the back for changing the placement of the shoulder strap to match your garment, but the bra CANNOT BE USED for anything other than LEFT-shouldered gowns. The description is inaccurate. I believe the loop at the front on the right could be used for a clear strap to add extra support on the right side, but oddly, the bra doesn't come with one.

Great value
This is my first pair of Blank jeans and I'm very happy with them. Very stretchy, no problems getting them on, flattering cut and fit. I got them in the same size as I buy in JBrand and Paige for jeggings/skinny jeans (28, and I'm a 6/8 depending on the brand). The golden yellow colour is lovely; not too pale, but not too dark or mustardy. I didn't want to spend a lot for a pair of coloured jeans in case they fall out of fashion really quickly. These are great value for the price.

Exceeded my Expectations
I was pleasantly surprised to see that on me, this dress basically looks exactly like it does on the model (as if that happens a lot). I'm a size 6/8 and the M is perfect. It is a mini-dress length so if you're taller like me (I'm 5'8"), the length will also be more like it looks on the model. The beading, fit and flow of this dress is fabulous. There is something about the way the beading is heavier and more clustered at the top but then trails off near the bottom that seems to be particularly flattering. I already feel fabulous in it and can't wait to wear it to a special event in July.

Cool and crisp
Like that this is cotton, and has long sleeves that can be rolled down for coverage and up for less. However, the elasticized waist is a drop waist and might not sit right on some body types. It isn't meant to sit at your waist, but doesn't quite go over your bum either. Might not be a home run for everyone.

Great basic layer
This is perfect for under sweaters, etc., but beware of a couple of things. It is quite tight (but I wouldn't size up), and it's quite sheer (I bought the white), so it really is not great on its own and don't buy it if that's how you want to wear it. It's quite long, which I also liked, and was easy to "ruche" around the tummy in a strategic way. Because it's tight, it doesn't move once you adjust it. I may order more in other colours.

Comfy and Soft
I really like this. The cut is flattering, and the hood is a great option to have when you've just had enough sun for the day. The jersey is soft and comfy. The length was good on me (I'm 5'8", but short-waisted), covering just enough.

Funky
Wearing these for the first time today. Appear to be good quality, leather soles and interior, comfortable with no pinching. The metal plate is a neat touch. They're very high, although part of that height is the platform. True to size, when you follow my rule, which is that a 39 is a U.S. 8.5. My size was out, so I ordered a half size up, and they are slightly too big, as I would have expected. Overall, I'm very glad I bought these and I think I'll get a lot of use out of them for the rest of the winter. They'll be great with long trousers, and my cropped pants, even certain types of skirts. So I think they're quite versatile. The antelope colour is, btw, a kind of light brown, and not camel.

Work appropriate slim pant
Fit like other NL pants (which I wear one size smaller than most brands). Great slim cut (without being totally curve hugging), good light wool fabric. Matches the NL suit I bought elsewhere this fall, so now I have two pant options, which is great. Most definitely a great deal at this sale price.
