Flattering fit
I was looking for some workout 3/4 pants that were fitted for running. These are really flattering but not so tight in the crotch that I feel exposed. I've never been someone who lounges around in workout or pajama-like clothes, but these I would just wear with a hoodie if I was doing some chores around the house or some neighborhood errands and I wouldn't feel like a slob doing it.

Adorable, a bit larger than expected
I was hoping this would fit tight on my natural waist, but it's looser so it goes lower and sits more on my hips when I wear it with a dress. It's still gorgeous, so I wore it low and since it has the extra room, now I plan on wearing it over some blazers, etc. It's like body jewelry and really changes the look of plain staple clothes. I bought the silver which looks even better in person than online; can't speak for the gold.

5 Star Black Tank; White Is Too Sheer
I love the fit and middle-weight of the black Splendid tank. It's long enough not to give a sneak peak but not so long that it blankets over pants awkwardly. Really flattering. Straps are thick enough to wear a normal bra but not so thick that it looks like a sports tank. I bought it in black and white, and I love the black...but the white is way too sheer. When I saw the weight of the black, I just assumed the white would be the same, but it feels thinner and I can see my skin color through it. Booooooo. Still looking for a good white tank. Why is this so impossible to find?

More Like Clear Jersey V Neck Tee
I know it says very light in the title, but that doesn't really describe how sheer the top is. Wish it had said "sheer" in the description or that the model's bra was visible as mine was when I put this on, so that I could have made a more informed decision before purchase. The white version of this shirt is practically clear. If that's what your after, this is for you. (The fit is great.) But if you're desperately seeking a white t-shirt that isn't so sheer that your freckles are visible through it, not so much. Sigh. My quest for a white shirt that isn't see-through continues.

Sharp in the shoulders, boxy in the body
Sigh. I am desperate for more blazers for work, so I rolled the dice and bought this piece when it was final sale, because onscreen, it looked perfect. Materials-wise, this has "good stuff in it" as my mom would say. Unfortunately, the fit is yuck. The model definitely has it clipped in the back in the pics where her jacket is closed because this waist is SO boxy and oversized in the waist. With buttons open, it's worse, the jacket is completely shapeless. I can't even have the buttons moved to make it a tighter fit when closed because of where the pockets are located, so this might not be something a tailor can save. Also, the shoulders are pointy, so it looks a bit 80s there, but if the rest of the silhouette matched, that might have been alright. It's just a weird combo. I really don't know what I'm going to with this. Even if I consign, I'm not going to get even a quarter of what I paid for this. I guess I learned my lesson about final sale items.

Beautiful construction
Bought these on sale (50% off!) in the cognac brown. They are so streamlined and smooth--really beautiful construction. I have the See by Chloe Lace Up Wedge Booties in black and they are my most favorite things in the universe and I can't find another pair anywhere--so I wanted to have an alt pair of comfortable wedge booties so I didn't wear the SBCies to bits. But these are more than just place filler shoes. I'm wearing them with slim leg pants and leggings and blazers--mega-cute. Agree that the high instep makes putting them on a little more time-consuming than usual but they feel great on. (And I have high arches so sometimes boots hurt them if I wear them for hours on end--these don't!) The bottoms are slippery so I'm going to have to put something on them so I don't slip in my office kitchen.

So nice, I bought it twice
This was more money than I'd like to spend on a winter hat but I bought it in the olive green because it was exactly what I've been looking for the past 2 seasons. A nice pop of not too bright green to bring out the hazel green color of my eyes. (Yeah, yeah. Whatever, you all do stuff like that too.) It's warm, and not so tight on my giant Irish head that it flattens my hair. I actually managed to lose the hat somehow week 1--and I bit the bullet and threw down another $68 to buy it again. Now I guard this thing like it's the crown jewels.

Bring em back! Best shoes ever.
So comfortable. So unique and gorgeous. Bought these in black last season and wore them ad nauseumwith black tights and fitted jeans and leggings. Had the bottoms re-heeled this fall and they look like new again. I've gotten more compliments on these boots than any other shoes or clothing I own. They give great height without sacrificing balance, I can actually pick up the pace in these. I have high arches so sometimes boots make them ache if I've worn them for hours on end--not these.

Love the look not the space & durability
Appearance-wise, this was just what I wanted. It wasn't gigantic but inch-wise should have fit what I need. Unfortunately, the actual storage space inside the bag is built so that it's a really tight squeeze. (Large outside, tiny inside!) My sunglasses case (admittedly larger than a norm glasses case but hardly epic) barely fits and takes up a third of the bag. Fitting that, a wallet, and a loose powder in the bag was pushing maximum capacity. The leather is also very stiff--it practically gave me a paper cut, so there was no hope for give. Maybe the leather wears over time but I'm not going to find out since on the second day of use a bolt on the strap spray loose and broke. Couldn't have been the weight of what was inside as it was an empty Sigg bottle and a wallet. Very disappointed and I will be returning this item.

Cute without trying
Simple but just the right amount of unusual. Great backdrop for big necklaces. Fabric feels soft and it's really warm to boot. Will be taking this on a ski trip this month to wear to dinner/karaoke on our night out. Have worn this with jegging-like jeans and a skirt and it looks great with both. I'll skip wearing this with most of my low-waisted jeans, though, as I'd be exposing too much back.
