Cutest boyfriend jeans
I love this pair of jeans. They do run large by at least one size and stretch out during wear, so if you want them loose go down one size, and if you are looking for a more fitted look go down two. I am normally a 27 and my 26's are very loose on me--they look best with a belt. I find I wear these more during the summer months with sandals, but I still wear them occasionally during colder weather cuffed just to the top of my engineer boots, or if it's not too frigid with ankle boots or heels. They are very soft and comfortable, and I may eventually order a pair in a 25 so I have the option of a more fitted look. I got mine for less than half of full price at another site, so there are better prices out there.

Classic jegging
I have these in the pitch, they are a very fitted true-to-size. I don't hand wash mine but I don't wash my jeans very often in general since I want them to last! The pockets in front are not functional...but I think this helps the front lay better on these. If you are expecting denim-weight order another pair, they are a very light twill, but warm probably due to the fabrication with some polyester. When I first got them I wasn't too sure about them, partly because of the fabric and partly because they are very fitted, and while I love skinny jeans I was not sure if the "jegging" look was right for me. I like them more when I wear them with a more voluminous top, and with boots or lower heels, because I have a curvy body type and I tend to look a little too va-va-voom if I wear them like the model in the picture. I'm sure lankier types would look great in them with anything.

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...

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.

Beautiful...but earpieces are too wide
I really liked these and would have kept them if the arms were not abnormally wide. I have never had this issue with sunglasses before. These were a good inch and a half wider at the ear than any of my other sunglasses. I'm not sure if this was a problem with my pair only or if Karen Walker makes sunglasses only for gigantic heads. I may try again to see but mine went back.

Nice plaid jeans
I ordered these in my normal size 25 and they fit well. I like the slightly higher waist which should play well with a cropped sweater I also purchased. They are slightly long on me at 5'3" but I just turn the hems under. I found the plaid a bit more subtle in person, and the plaid on the pockets on my pair matched nicely, unlike the picture. I love the slightly punk look of these.

Not quite perfect
This is a great dress for the price. I ordered a small and an xs, Small was a little loose in the waist for me. Xs looked better but it felt tight and the lining was a bit too short, and I'm 5'3". The lace also has a seam right up the center front which could bunch strangely if not pulled just so. I really liked it but since there were a couple of things which I would probably find annoying with wear, I sent it back.

A little wide in the hem
I ordered this in carnation, which in person leans more mauve than peach, which was fine by me. I am usually a small but in sweatshirts that are so slouchy like this I usually get an xs since I'm short and larger tends to overwhelm me. Xs was a good fit. My only complaint about this shirt is the hem is quite wide so it flares out at the bottom. The uneven hem does offset the weirdness of it a little bit so it is not completely unflattering, but I still think it would have been better if the hem were slightly more fitted. I do like it enough to keep it.

A bit too long in the straps
This is a nice peplum top in that it does what peplums are supposed to do, flatter the waist. I love that the peplum is slightly longer in back. I ordered the small which was the right choice. I found it minimized my bust slightly which for me is not a bad thing at 30G. Unfortunately I need to wear a bra and the straps were a little too long and my bra showed on the sides. I tried to see what shortening the straps would do but that raised the waistline and ruined the flattery of the peplum. If you are tall, have a lower bustline or can skip a bra this would be a lovely choice but for me it will go back.

Too big and long for me
I'm 5'3" with a 36" bust and ordered a 4. It was slightly too big everywhere but fit me closest in the bust so a size down might be too small. I should note it only fit in the bust when I pinched the shoulders a bit since it was too long in the straps on me and would need to be altered there either way. While a 2 might have worked better I didn't find it as flattering as I would have liked so will not reorder.
