Great sweater--inconsistent sizing
I ended up with two of these in the same size (small) and one was noticeably shorter than the other. So I can see why some have complained about the length. I ended up keeping the longer one, and I'm only 5'3" so taller people may want to size up. I think the pockets help with the draping of this sweater so I won't be removing them, but sometimes you can see them popping out of the bottom of the sweater. The cashmere is a lighter, sheerer weight than I expected (not a bad thing!) but not see through because of the looseness and draping. Sawdust color is beautiful, kind of a pinky, peachy beige--excellent for my skintone. I eyeballed this sweater last year and finally took the plunge--glad I did, it is a beautiful statement sweater.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great color and fit
After reading prior reviews, I ordered my normal size 27. I have two other pairs of C/E but both are boyfriend style, the 27 is way oversized and the 26 is still loose. The 27 in this fit great but with the pair I received there was a strange wrinkling around the pockets. I decided to order another pair of 27s to compare and on a whim ordered a 26 too. I am so glad I ordered the 26! I thought the 27 looked great but the 26 was even better. The pocket problem is gone and they curve up perfectly along the backside. Most jeans have eliminated the "gap" in back but for me there is still a lot of looseness there...not with these. They are still very comfortable and I don't have any muffin top. Color is as pictured...beautiful!

Unflattering sweater!!
I was intrigued by the design of this sweater with the uneven hemline so I thought I'd give it a try. I ordered my usual small. The sweater is very fitted around the hip area and loose through the waist (I'm not particularly hippy). I am 5'3" but it was also very long. In the photo the model has it bunched up around her waist. I tried pulling it down and it was nearly to my knees in back, and the looseness around the waist was not flattering. I tried pushing it up as well and the bunching around the waist was also not flattering! The hemline was also not very flattering in real life. I think this sweater requires a very specific body type (not mine). If you are looking for a small which is sold out now one will be arriving shortly!

Go with the 8R if you're short
I ordered these boots about a year ago. I was a new mommy in a cold climate and even though I was not sure about how the style looked on me I kept them, and they did serve me well although they pulled my socks down. I think because of my height (5'3") they end up hitting me at an awkward unflattering place on my calf and I look like I have clown feet with fitted pants, so I only wore them with loose ones. I ended up getting an 8R this year and they are much better for me! Much more versatile. I think this is why Frye offers two heights. I guess I will be selling this pair on Ebay! BTW, many say to go a half-size down in Frye and I don't think in this boot you need to do that, unless you have very narrow feet (I don't).

Huge looking boot
First of all, I am a small person with big feet. I ordered my usual 8.5 in Frye, and could have probably gone down half a size in length, however this boot was narrower in the foot than my other Fryes (Engineer & Carmen). I might have tried a half size down but the shaft area looked huge on me, even after adjusting the straps. This boot would probably look better on someone with more proportionate feet. I could not justify the price for a boot I was lukewarm about, so these went back.

Delicate but strong necklace
This necklace is very versatile, I wear it often. I did purchase the matching earrings as well. My only complaint is it does get tangled up easily, you need to lay it flat to store it, and don't even think about throwing it in your gym bag! It strong and well made though so with all the times I've had to untangle it it's never broken. I've had mine for a few years and I am very happy with my purchase.

Griffin Wedge Sandal
I ordered this shoe in the army green in both 8 and 8.5. I ended up keeping the 8 so if you are between sizes I suggest going down. They are very comfortable for their height, and pretty stable also...I felt OK carrying my one-year old around in them. I agree they are a little loose in the ankle area, but I feel this is just the look of the shoe and adds to its comfort--despite the looseness it does not slip or rub. The army green color is not too pretty if you just stare at it, but it is very versatile and cool in its own way--it goes with almost everything in my closet.

Josephine Dress
I am very happy with this dress--it can be dressed up or down. I am looking forward to wearing it with strappy sandals this summer, and I've already worn it with over the knee boots out to dinner. I looked at other reviews of Rory Beca products, and since most of them ran a little large, I went with a small. I am a 34DD so sometimes medium is best, but the small was fine. I like that the cleavage area has a hook and eye closure, and this can be worn with a strapless bra which is great for me! My only issue is the area around the waist, but once I realized that the tie goes under the elastic rather than over it, it was very flattering. You don't notice the elastic this way since the top part is blousy enough. I don't know if it would have been worth the full price but I was happy with the quality for what I paid for it on sale! The smoky taupe color is more taupe as described, not as silvery as pictured, and the tie is kind of olive colored, FYI.
