Super chic
Love it. Love the zipper up the back. Love that it really is a nice small size 0. Love the quality of the wool. Love the sale price. Just be aware - it's a snug skirt all the way down so has a bit of a hobble skirt effect. I had to run for a plane in this skirt. It was just a tiny bit funny. Nonetheless, I love it.

I'm scared of clowns
I am all about Mr. Lim. And I am all about the high-waisted palazzo pant. However, to make such pants work, there needs to be some fit at waist and hips and an artful fall. This sucker is so big and generally shapeless that it's impossible to make it work. I bought the 0 - I often do have to take 0s in - but this was so big that alteration was not an option. Frankly, I am not sure the cut would be flattering even if they had fit better. Return pile.....

Very McQ, bustle n all!
This is a great dress for someone who wants that McQueen/Westwood architectural eccentric look. However- if you have breasts you are going to have a rough time, as the stretchy top bodice - the only unstructured part of the dress - is cut for an A cup. The dress overall is cut quite small as is normal with McQ - I am a 00 or XXS, 5'1" and around 95- and it fits closely on me but well - until you reach the bust. I am a D cup and this just ain't happening! With the dress on sale and all I might have had bra cups put in and made it work - but the other issue with the dress is that the torso is cut quite long. I am not short-waisted, but this is a dress cut for a taller girl. Too bad!

Great, simple dress
A strapless dress that can dress down with flats and a little sweater, or dress up with heels at night, is a killer summer staple. This one has a really nice, simple, flattering shape and the fabric seems to have a bit of structure. I bought the XS and it fits me- I am 5'1" and about 95 - but it has room to give for someone a size bigger. Lengthwise I can just wear it with flats without hemming it - just. Very happy with this one.

Almost right
The color of these pants is nice - you cannot really see the stripe, so it's a warm cream-almost light khaki. However, on a petite girl like me, these are a little too high-waisted and just generally not all that flattering. They would probably be great on a taller person. I am a 00 or thereabouts and the 0 was roomy in the waist and hips- if I had kept them I would have taken them in.

Love love love this maxi skirt
I was looking for a simple black maxi and this is it! The fabric is a bit light/thin but does not appear to be see-through. It falls quite elegantly. I think my favorite feature is as others have noted - the flat waistband allows you to easily roll the skirt up or down, removing the dreaded "maxi skirt commitment" of choosing a skirt for flats or a skirt for heels.I bought the XS. I'm 5'1" and about 95 and it's fine on me if I roll it or have it hemmed. Plus hubby loves it!

Nice maxi skirt
Nice skirt, good length (I am 5'1" and would not need to hem, although it would be quite long with flats). The color really is denim-like - a speckly blue - and the fabric seems to wrinkle easily. At the price, though, it's a versatile buy. Fits quite slim at waist and hip - I am very small and the smallest size fits me just perfectly.

Cute dress although slightly shapeless
Usually Velvet dresses are reasonably formfitting, even for a petite person like me - this one is a bit blousy. It's wearable but probably better on a taller/bigger person. These dresses are great for summer - daytime with flats and a tote, nighttime with heels- so I would probably have kept it if the Susana Monaco version were not so much better on me.

Very cute, versatile, and comfortable
Pretty clog to satisfy that 70s vibe - not too clunky. Seems to fit true to size. The taupe color is very versatile. I get lots of compliments on these. If your size in on sale, buy 'em!

Beware - can't be altered
Like all HH miniskirts, it's sized a bit large. I bought the XS and it was huge on me; I made the mistake of not checking with a tailor before I decided not to return it. Guess what? Because of the leaves or petals, it cannot be altered. Buy - but if it doesn't fit - send it back!
