Gorgeous, Rich Color
I've already worn this sweater a couple of times and while it's a bit itchy (I have really sensitive skin so the itch factor is probably null for most) and the length is shorter than I expected, the rich color, the perfect orange-red, is one of the few brights that is a compliment to my very fair complexion. This color seems like it would work for any skin tone. It's warm and pretty. Exceptional quality.

Gorgeous Print; Supple Silk
I've never owned any item from this designer, but these pants are a hit. The material is luxurious and falls beautifully along the legline. The only drawback is that they are unusually high-waisted (I have long legs and a long torso, and these still hit about two inches above the navel); I ordered a size larger than I normally do yet they were still snug (i.e., irritatingly tight). The waist has no give whatsoever and for what you'll pay, it's probably a good idea to order at least one size, if not two sizes up, and then get them tailored. The print is beautiful -- I wore it with an emerald green Theysken's Theory buttondown blouse, but the print will match a palette of primary and neutral colors. And this is the silk that doesn't wrinkle! Bonus!

Chic and Pretty
I ordered this jacket to wear with a pair of shorts that I've never worn because the color (a soft white) has proven surprisingly difficult to match. Oh my goodness... what serendipity to discover that it not only is the perfect pairing for the shorts, but is also so pretty as the final touch to several different looks, from girly to downtown (and bonus! If zipped, it's gorgeous as a stand-alone top). The soft cream of the faux fur contrasted with the nude leather trim combine to make for one of the loveliest, albeit unexpected outerwear items I've ever owned, let alone seen. This is one of those items that looks one hundred times better in-person and when you've got it on than it does in the photo (the dark colors it's styled with in the photo act to really skew the true beauty of this jacket, in my opinion). Sexy, soft, and so well-tailored; a great mixable piece!

Sheds More than a Persian Cat
I ordered this sweater in white and it is so soft and pretty; feminine and classic, no doubt. However, there are some major issues to be aware of: First, as "hairy" as this sweater looks in-person (much more so than it looks in the photo) it does not even begin to reflect just how hairy, once you put it on, it actually is. This sweater shedded unlike anything I've ever seen. My dark wash denim jeans looks like the legs of an alpaca. The black interior of my car looked like a cattery. My husband and I were picking long, white hairs out of our mouth, eyes, nasal cavities. What a mess! Second, I ordered a large expecting it to be loose and floaty; instead I got snug and structured. I've never been disappointed with anything by Milly because the quality is superb and the fabrics are supple. However, this was beyond ridiculous. I'll definitely wear it again, but it's got to be paired with cream or white to avoid looking like you're the crazy cat lady without a lint-roller.

Adore Squared!
Same goes for this pair of J. Brands as I described in the review below. I love that the "no white after Labor Day" rule is now outdated because white is every bit as perennial as black. These pants feel nothing like denim and I was initially worried that they would not hold their shape, but they stayed shapely throughout the day. They're a "get!"

Adore!
As I've established in other reviews, I love J Brand denim and these pants -- which have a very similar cut and fit to the denim leggings -- have only broadened my scope of appreciation for this brand. I ordered them in the dark mustard color, tucked them into flat boots, and then went about a super busy day. These never sagged, bagged or lost their shape. Plus, they're incredibly lightweight, but without being "summery." Adore.

Have Them in (almost) EVERY Color...
... I love these over-the-knee socks that can be pulled up to mid-thigh or scrunched down to mid-calf so much that I've bought them in every color. I washed the heck out of them (in cold water) last Fall and Winter and they wore pretty well, but they turned out to be such a staple that I stocked up on them for this Fall and Winter, too; most recently, I've purchased a couple of pairs of black, cream, brown, and hunter green (which, to my surprise, works just as well as any neutral). Getting them in almost every color possible (the only color I've skipped is the hot pink) speaks for itself. I'm obsessed!

Shoulder Shouldn't
Joie is one of my favorite brands for silk tanks and soft sweaters in stripes or basic colors so I ordered this expecting it to be along the lines of what I've grown to love about Joie's fit and style. I love the color and the material, but the fit is a mess. It's much shorter than I expected (I think "cropped" should be in the item's title) and it's impossible, short of pinning it to your bra straps, to keep this sweater on your shoulders. When one side slips off your shoulder, okay... when both sides slip off, not okay as it's a short ride from falling off both shoulders to sliding down over your chest. I'm keeping it because it will work well for layering, but at this price, it should be able to stand on its own. Did I mention I love the color?

Endless Love
I own several pairs of this particular style and highly similar styles by J Brand. They're so perfect, you could truly wear them every single day. I got my first pair about two years ago and since that first pair, these have been my go-to brand for every style of denim I could ever want.

Subtle Sexy
I wore these to an early evening cocktail party, paired with a black ALC halter top. These pants are gorgeous. They are sheer, but not exposing, and they're incredibly sophisticated. Unlike almost every other black item of clothing I own, this black actually looks good with different shades of black. They look delicate and floaty when on, but the sheer material is actually much sturdier than it appears in the photo. I'll definitely wear these several more times and given how lightweight they are, this is a rare seasonless item. These skimmed the floor with three inch heels (I'm 5'10) so if you're on the petite side, you'll need a good tailor or super high heels. Very expensive, but worth it if you're looking for a beautifully tailored piece that you can mix and match with just about any item in your closet.
