Pure Awesomeness!
These Booties are pure awesomeness! They are true to size, and the chunky block heel makes them extremely wearable - even if you're just headed out for a day of shopping. What I love most is the color...it's a taupe/grey that literally goes with everything. I wore these with skinny jeans yesterday, and just adored the look - they manage to be edgy and sophisticated at the very same time. These were an impulse purchase for me - but one that I don't regret at all, as they will be perfect year-round. Highly recommended!!

Exceeded My Expectations!
I am used to wearing high shoes; however, I have never worn anything with a 2" front platform, so I was worried as to whether or not there would be a wobble factor, but these are actually incredibly stable - and give you an amazing amount of height that is truly comfortable. The bed of the shoe is cushioned, so there is no discomfort there. The raffia ties take about an hour to adjust to - at first they seem too tight, and a little itchy; but I found that after I wore them for awhile, I didn't even notice they were there - very comfortable. Additionally, they remain tied (I used a double-knot) from when you put them on until you take them off. I am a size 5 1/2 / 6. I purchased these in a 6, and found that they fit perfectly (if just slightly big), so I would say that they are true to size.I have a narrow foot, and there is a bit of wiggle room, so I think that these would work for someone with a wide-width foot, as well. Note: These are even more gorgeous in real life! :)

Lke Walking on a Cloud!
After reading the previous review, I was incredibly apprehensive about buying these shoes; however, I loved the way that they looked in pictures, so I decided to give them a try when they were restocked in my size (in the Nude color). Thank goodness I did! For me, these are like walking on a cloud. They are beyond comfortable; required no break-in period; and are incredibly sturdy (no wobbling whatsoever). As a note...I am a Size 5 1/2 / 6 (bought these in a 6 and they were perfect), and have an extremely narrow foot and tiny ankles. There are three buckle holes on the ankle strap of these shoes, and I found that the tightest fit was perfect for my ankles. Though, from prior experience, I feel that Dolce Vita shoes do run about a 1/2 size big; for this style, I suggest sticking to your true size. I'm not sure how these would work for someone with a wider foot; but they totally rock if you have a narrow foot. My new summer staple! :)

Loved, But Returned
I contemplated the purchase of these for what seemed like ages; finally, when they popped up in my size, I took the leap and bought them - I only wish I had done so sooner! The photographs do not do these justice - they are absolutely exquisite in person; very colorful and fun yet minimalist at the very same time. Though the height seems outrageous, the platform in the front really adds a lot of support, and keeps the instep from being too deep, so that they are comfortable. These run true to size - I'm typically a very narrow 5 1/2, bought these in a 6, and that's where the problem comes in (and my reason for return). Sometimes I can get away with wearing a size 6, others I can't (this was one of the latter). Sadly, I had to return - the toebox just felt too wide on my foot and made me wobbly. Had they been half a size smaller, I definitely who have kept them as they are a must-have for the spring/summer months.

My New Favorite Bag!
Last week I purchased the Mini MAC Clutch in Red, and instantly fell in love with the size (perfect for petite girls who find the full-sized MAC too big, or someone looking for a great going out bag), so I knew that I had to purchase another color - I chose the grey. As I rarely go for bags with silver hardware, I was iffy about this bag, but it arrived a few hours ago and I am in LOVE! This is a grey unlike any you've seen before...a beautiful pale charcoal with subtle distressing that is just yummy to touch. But even better is the hardware. Though I originally thought the hardware was silver, it is actually a gunmetal color which is one of the most beautiful things you will ever lay eyes on (dark silver with black undertones). I seriously hope that RM releases more bags with this color hardware as it is stunning - and so versatile. All I can say is...buy this bag now - it is destined to become your new favorite! :)

Perfect for Petite Girls!
I have been a HUGE fan of the full-sized Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch for quite some time; but as a petite girl - 5'1 and 96-pounds - I always found that the bag looked somewhat awkward on me; thus, when the Mini MAC was released, I had to give it a try - and I am so happy that I did. Despite the fact that the Mini MAC is smaller than the original version, it is big enough to carry all of your daily essentials - BlackBerry, wallet, makeup, keys - with room to spare, and, in my opinion, is far more flattering for petite girls who don't want a bag that overwhelms their frame. I bought the Red, and adore the color (be aware, this is a TRUE red color with orange undertones); now I want one in every shade! :)

Perfect In Every Way!
After buying the Rebecca Minkoff Boyfriend BF Crossbody in Pink Ostrich, I realized that I needed a change purse that would be small enough to fit inside; thus, I was thrilled when the matching Little Louie Key Pouch was released! The color works with any bag (it's more of a nude/blush tone than true pink), and the size is perfect for holding just the right amount of change - not too much, not too little. A definite must-have if you're looking for an adorable (yet well-constructed!) change purse!

Love At First Sight!
I fell in love with these on sight the day they popped up on Shopbop, and within 27 minutes of first spotting them, had placed my order. This being my first pair of DVF shoes, I was iffy with sizing, and debated between my true size (6), and my sometimes-size (5 1/2). In the end, due to the fact that I have an extremely narrow foot, I went with the 5 1/2, and it was the best choice, as the fit is perfect (a size 6 would have been far too big on my foot). That said, the toe box is fairly narrow, so if you have a wide foot, I suggest sticking with your true size; but if you have a narrow foot, size down 1/2. Sizing aside, the color of these is GORGEOUS - an incredible nude/blush tone that will work with anything and everything in your wardrobe. The ankle ties are well-constructed, and long enough to wrap around a few times before cinching securely - plus they add such a stunning touch to the overall aesthetic. Seriously don't delay - buy these NOW...you will love!! :)

Gorgeous; But Returned
I had enormous success with the Chelsea Sunglasses from Oliver Peoples Eyewear that I bought last year, so I was hoping for the same with Zaya. Unfortunately, while I was absolutely smitten by the aesthetic of these sunglasses, I returned them, as I found them to be too dark on my face, in contrast to my pale skin. I ordered the Cocobolo, which I thought would be more of a Taupe/Tortoiseshell color, but they were incredibly dark, and just looked too stark against my skintone. Nevertheless, they were stunning, and I wish I could have kept them. If you're looking for a pair of dark, oversized, movie star sunglasses, these are most definitely for you! :)

Hi, I Adore You...
I bought these in Smoke Stack after quite a bit of debate, and all I can say is that these boots are unlike anything you will ever see. They work beautifully with jeans; and the heel is just high enough to give you height without forsaking comfort. Personally, I found them to be true to size - if just slightly big; not enough to size down though. FYI...There is a drawstring-like closure at the top of the shaft, so you can get the best fit for your leg. Overall, my favorite boot purchase of 2010/2011 - too cute.
