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!

Pretty dress with some issues
The print is really lovely, but the dress is two pieces: a slip and an overdress - and it's one of those slip/dress combos where you will never, ever, ever get it on unless you put them on separately, and in this case you'll need to actually CUT them apart. Also- the slip bit is sized quite small, like most Alice stuff, and the overdress is tight in the shoulders but blousy everywhere else - so it takes a little trickery to get it to be flattering. I wouldn't buy again, but I've sliced it up so am out of luck on returns ;-) A cool belt will probably save it.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Nice basic wide-leg pants for the season
I ordered a 0 - Juicy runs nice and smal - I am really a 00 and I will just need to take them in a tiny bit. Length was very long, but I'm 5'1" so that is to be expected. The linen was a better quality than I expected from Juicy and has enough weight that the pants seem to fall well. They are as wide as you'd want unless you want actual palazzos. All in all, will probably be a useful basic in an on-trend shape.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Another tent dress
The print is kind of pretty but this dress will need a wide belt to make it work on a petite girl like me. I didn't return it and am regretting that.

Totally great basic dress
Another great basic dress from Velvet. Like all Velvet, it pills after a few wearings, so it will NOT have a long life...but will it survive a couple beach vacations as a pull-over-bikini-and-go-to-dinner dress? You betcha. The strapless top stays up nicely, too. I bought the black and may get the white.

Pretty dress, but huge size
I bought this dress as a possible last-minute wedding dress - so when it came in and was gigantic (I ordered a zero), I still had it taken in. Be warned, this dress can't be altered to be formfitting - it will always be floaty. The dress IS very pretty and the ivory color is lovely. I would wear this to a garden party or something similar. It would probably be better on a taller person.

Cute maxi skirt
Ordered the smallest size and it still needed to be taken in, but that's common for me, so, "as expected'. The color is a nice chalky pale grey and the fabric has some weight to it. I'm not sure the skirt with its stretchy waistband can handle a tucked-in top: it's more about throwing something slouchy on over it. Overall, happy with this purchase.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Awesome piece
Soft cashmere, perfect olive color, cropped style and snug fit even on 00 me- this is a killer, chic layering piece for winter-spring and spring-fall transition seasons.

Possibly best boot purchase ever
The idea of "convertible boots" sounds awful, doesn't it? Like those pants that zip off into shorts? Trust the Rag & Bone guys to make it work. What we have here is a cool chunky suede ankle boot (pretty chunky, not delicate) and these weird chaps-looking pieces with a corset laced back. Slide the pieces on (not easy) and hook them under the sole of the ankle boot and suddenly you have a fierce riding-type boot that truly doesn't look stupid. I have long legs but am not tall and these suckers are just over-knee for me. I will probably wear them most often as ankle boots, but I love them both ways. I'm usually a 6 and bought a 6.5 as the listing said they run small. There's a bit of extra room, but I think a true 6 would have been way too tight. The suede is distressed- rubbed and shiny in places- which is a look I love but you may not. Also, had I paid the full$1K plus price for these boots, I might not have been QUITE so thrilled!

Would be cute if they fit!
I purchased an XS. I am 5'2" and about 95 and these were GIGANTIC on me. The loose fit, dropped crotch, and cuff are cute features, but require a great fit at waist and hips. I am hoping these can be altered but am doubtful as the waistband appears to be one wide piece of elastic. Buy at least one size smaller than you expect to need, and if you're petite give it up!
