Excellent!
Now i know why the other reviewers are raving about how comfortable this is! It's not the tough, stiffer kind of denim that we usually get with many other brands - these jeans come feeling well-worn, like you've been wearing them for years but without looking old and sloppy. These are great in warm weather, and so great for me cos where i am, it's summer all year long. They fit the same as the black sateen-y/velvety stilt cigarette jeans, which i bought earlier. The waistband doesn't expand like it does on other brands over the course of the day, and doesn't over-emphasise my muffin-top :P I'm 5'4, so the jeans are a little long for me, but i can fold them in or just shorten the length a little. I wear a 26/27 in DL1961, but am a clear 27 in these.

Similar fit as the Melissa Ultragirl
For those of you who already are Melissa shoe-lovers/wearers - this shoe fits very similarly to Ultragirl; there is a subtle rise to the heel (about half-inch) that is the same as the usual Ultragirl cuts. So i stuck to my usual size in Melissa and didn't go wrong. I wasn't crazy about the spherical shapes on this shoe at first, but it does complement the pointed toe and gives the overall design a cool & quirky feel. As comfy as all other Melissa shoes; the pointed toe does not pinch my feet at all.

Definitely size down
By the look of the narrow toe on this design, i'd thought for sure that i might have to size up in order to fit into the shoe. However, i read somewhere online that advised buyers to size down as this design is larger than the usual Melissa shoe sizes. I normally wear a US7 for other designs of Melissa shoes (Ultragirl, Divine, Virtue). But that advice proved to be true and i had to size down by one size to a US6 for this. Overall, it's as comfy as the usual Melissa shoes. The dramatic pointed toe and stud-style buckles for the 2 straps give this Mary Jane shoe an edgy feel that looks good for work wear and casual-chic outfits. A worthy buy.

Classy yet affordable
The face of this Orchard Gem Watch is half an inch smaller than the Orchard Watch from the same brand, and the straps are a little thinner, making for a slightly more feminine look. I like that the glass is clear so you can see the time more easily than the Orchard Watch. Initially, i had hoped that the dial could be a bit bigger, but now i think that it complements the gem-cut design well. I love how the gem-cut design of the glass just glams up the entire look. This is a watch that i could wear for all occasions, but at a budget-friendly price. An excellent buy.

Comfy and versatile
The material is comfortable, design is simple and versatile - wear it untucked with jeans/shorts for casual or tucked into high-waist pants/pencil skirt for work - it all works. I like the fact that the white band is across the chest area and the tummy area is a dark colour, which makes it visually flattering. The fit is not very form-fitting, good for summer temperature. I'm a 34B, the shirt roomy across the chest without being too much so.

Love this!
Based on her review, i'm somewhat similar in height (around 5'4") and waist size as the previous reviewer Aziramarini, and ordered according to her feedback - i'm glad i did cos she's right, it's perfect! The S size that i ordered fits at my natural waist, i.e., the waistband covers my navel, the way i hoped it would - this is unlike on the model where the waistband fits below her navel, tho I suppose if i'd ordered the M, it'd look the same. But the S is better as the length suits my height - i can wear it with lower heels and i wouldn't be in danger of tripping on the skirt hem, and the waistband fits where i want it to. It falls and flows beautifully when worn, wasn't creased despite being folded and packed into a box, and came with a clip-hanger. Worthwhile purchase!

Great gift!
Bought this design, as well as the one with purplish tones in wave/flame design, as Christmas gifts. Am impressed by how sturdy it feels, while looking so pretty at the same time! There's a button to press that opens the umbrella automatically in a nice "whoosh!", excellent for when there's a sudden downpour and you need to act fast. It's not lightweight, like another reviewer said, but at least i feel assured of it's sturdiness. I'm excited to give such a wonderful yet affordable gift and might just get one for myself too.

Beautiful!
Just received this in the mail today and I'm in love! The design is delicate and pretty, but the earrings still feel sturdy enough, i won't worry that it'll break just by putting it on. The colour is a lovely, classy pale gold tone (am very glad it's not a garish yellow gold which would've just cheapened the look). Although called French Lace, the filigree-like design has a similar feel to jewellery from a southeast asian culture that i have roots from (i.e., Peranakan jewellery) so that's an extra plus for me. It's just nice in size, not too small to be missed, not too big to distract from your face. Can't wait to wear these to a theatre show that i'm going for later this week!

Pretty and sturdy
Bought this design as well as the one with pink tones as Christmas gifts. Am impressed by how sturdy it feels, while looking so pretty at the same time!

Cute case! Fits iPhone 4S!
The colours and design just cheer me up, and while the material is flexible, but it doesn't feel like it's prone to over-stretching, as some silicone cases are. And i'm happy to confirm that the side button cutout fits the iPhone 4S too! There were a couple of flaws in the coating (a couple of tiny bumps and a small scratch, so minus one star for that), but that could be specific to the case i got. (A big thank you to Jordyn of Shopbop for her excellent customer service!)
