Giant blousy dress
After looking at other reviews I ordered several of these dresses in size 4 and 6, expecting the 6 to fit better. The 6 was huge on me. The 4 fit well in the chest but was very big everywhere else, but I suppose I expected this dress to be loose. I think a 2 would be too tight. The 4 looked nice with a belt and if I tighten the straps up enough I can wear a strapless bra, which is important for me at 30F or 32DDD. It would be passable as a beach coverup without a belt but I wouldn't call it super flattering that way. I kept a black dress and would have considered one in a color as well but none of the colors I liked were available in my size at the time of the sale, and it's not really worth full price to me.

A little tight across the shoulders
I ordered a small, my usual size, and found this a little tight across the shoulders, and the sleeves were long on me. A medium would have been big everywhere else and I didn't think this was worth extensive alterations, so I sent it back.

Looked too long on the foot
I admittedly have a hard time finding flat sandals that flatter because my foot is big for my height. These made my foot look really long, so they went back. They seemed a nice quality otherwise, and I found them true to size.

Just not crazy about these...
I may be the lone dissenter but I didn't like the fit of this pair too much. My usual 25 was tight, 26 fit better but had a looseness at the hem I did not like. I'm 5'3" and they hit a couple of inches above my ankle, and at that length the looseness was a little strange. They might be better for someone taller, or possibly shorter.

Too beautiful for me
This bag is quite beautiful and made of heavy, thick leather. I decided not to keep it however because the leather was so smooth and perfect that I knew I would cry at the first scratch. Also because I am a stay-at-home mom I didn't think it would really suit my lifestyle. I ended up going with a Phillip Lim mini Pashli, but if I were still in the workforce it would have been a beautiful bag. Also I loved the iridescent hardware. I hope Sophie Hulme makes more bags with this hardware, maybe in a pebbled leather that I think I could live with...

Nice quality sunglasses
I have been looking for a pair of thick-framed black sunglasses and tried a pair of Karen Walkers and found them too big for my head. I was worried they would fall off. It may have just been the pair but when I saw these I thought I would try them instead. They are nice and snug on my average sized head, and they don't push up on my cheeks when I smile. They come with both a soft and hard case. The hard case is huge but that seems to be typical for sunglasses lately. The lenses are made by Carl Zeiss so they are high quality. I'm glad I picked these up before they get really popular and go up in price like the Karen Walkers have.

Second time is the charm
I am revising my previous not-so-great review of this coat. First time I ordered taupe size 42 (I am usually a 4 or 6 in coats). I didn't like the color on me and I found the belt a little sticky, and the coat was maybe slightly loose. I sent it back and waited for another sale, and of course all the coats I was interested in sold out. Out of desperation for a new down coat I gave this one another try, but this time in a black size 40. I am so glad things worked out the way they did because this one is enormously flattering, and oddly the belt works better too. I am 5'3" and the sleeves are the perfect length for me. Now I don't have to be cold or frumpy this winter.

I really didn't need these but...
I had tried another pair of this style in a different pattern previously so I knew they would work for me in my usual size 25. It is like they were made for me, they are the perfect length for my 5'3" body. I didn't really need another pair of jeans but I have nothing else like them and at the sale price I couldn't pass them up. I am sure these will get a lot of wear.

Pricey but flattering!
This seemed very expensive for what it is when I ordered it but it is very flattering on. I am usually a small but only xs was available in black, and the xs worked out fine for me. I love the oversized hood and this is a great length for my 5'3" frame. I'm glad I got 25% off but it is worth the price to me.

Beautiful and flattering
I would have liked to order this in a small and xs as I am usually a small but this looked a little loose on the model. No small was available but the xs worked out perfectly for my 36" bust. So I would say size down if possible. This obviously needs a base layer but with a fitted cami it is so flattering. Black lace is usually a winter only item for me but this one I'm sure I can wear in the summer too since it is short sleeve and very light looking. I am very happy with my purchase.
