Comfortable, cute gladiators
I purchased 4 pairs of gladiators to try and these were one of the top 2 contenders. I decided on the Ash Mani sandals because I felt they had a more feminine look and would be more versatile. These however were the most comfortable of the bunch as they have a padded footbed and the nubuck is very soft, and the lacing makes them fully adjustable. They are a little tough looking and give clothes a more casual look. Like most flat gladiators they make the foot look a little long but not too horribly. I wasn't crazy about the color so that helped sway my decision. I probably would have kept them had I not preferred the other pair. They do maybe run slightly large so if you are between sizes go with the lower one.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Heavily distressed
I ordered a 25 and 26 to try, and I think either would have worked for me. Both sizes were loose in the waist area but I plan to wear these with a belt. The 25 or even a 24 might have been better if I wanted the waist to fit more closely, but the looseness suits this style. I ultimately decided to keep the 26 mainly because the 25s were too heavily shredded, as in they had giant holes torn all the way through, with flaps of string hanging off. I own a pair of the Mila shorts in size 25 and usually wear a 25 or 26, but in boyfriend styles I usually prefer the 26. For reference I have 36" hips.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Splendid makes the best tees
I own several of the very light jersey tees but wanted a grey one and that style does not come in grey. I'm usually a medium in Splendid (small in most other tees) and ordered a medium and it fits like my other Splendids. It is fairly loose in the body but still flattering, and I find size small in this brand to be a little tight in the shoulder area and chest. This one did not disappoint and is very soft.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Nice sandals but a little high
I ordered these in both 38 and 38.5. I am usually an 8.5 in shoes and an 8 in sandals, and I own a pair of the Harrow booties in size 39, but those run small. These are more true to size and I put on the 38s and did not bother trying the other pair since they fit great. This shoe has a higher heel than my Harrows though and I was hoping it would be about the same--but the heel is more like 4 inches. They are still pretty comfortable though but I haven't been able to wear them out yet so I'm not sure how they will be with an extended wear, but they are very cool looking and edgy so I plan to keep them anyway. The panel in front kind of stands away from the ankle but I think that helps with the look as it makes them more boot-like. They appear to be excellent quality too which I expected after owning my Harrows.

Nice but difficult to get on
I really like this hand piece but it is very difficult to get on. The weight of the finger part of the chain causes it to slip off the wrist very easily, whether it is on the finger or not. I will keep it but it won't be what I put on when I'm in a rush to get out the door. The finger portion hangs very low with the hand down, and I can slip it on or off my finger with the bracelet on. I didn't expect that but it doesn't bother me. All in all a nice piece for the price.

Too big
I ordered an xs knowing Vince runs big. I wanted it to look like the shirt on the model wearing eggplant. Unfortunately it is still too big for me. The top also came to me very wrinkled and smelling of perfume, so I'm sure it was a return but that was not a deal breaker. I really liked the ghost color and it seemed to be good quality, and at around $100 on sale it was a great price. To be fair, I have a hard time finding flattering blouses so I usually stick to knits. I think because it has a dolman cut it blouses out in back and makes me look very big. Sadly, it will go back.

Very big
I ordered a 0 in this top and it is very big. I would say it would probably fit someone who normally wears size medium well. I really tried to make it work for me because I love the design but it's just not flattering. It would be great if it were cut a little smaller, and for me, shorter in front.

Prettier in person
This is my second Chan Luu wrap bracelet. My first was a better price but I love it so much I was willing to pay more for a second complementary one. This bracelet is sparklier and nicer in person. It should look great with grays as another reviewer stated, and pastels, browns and black. I waited to buy for a sale and it is worth the price I paid.

Beautiful color
I ordered the Pinot color in size 25 and 26, and decided to keep the 25. The color is gorgeous. It registers darker in person and is more of a purple eggplant color. I thought it looked less brown than the picture. Both sizes fit well, but the 25 was tighter feeling and looked smoother. I thought as they stretched I would be better off with the 25. I am 5'3" and most jeans are very long on me, these were only slightly long and the bunching looks nice, so I don't have to tuck them under. They should be great for a night out!

Short and wide
I ordered this dress out of season because last summer I was wishing I had a bathing suit coverup and the price could not be beat during the big event sale. Unfortunately in size small it was too wide looking, and as another reviewer stated very short in front, and I am 5'3". It would probably look good on a very small slight person, but it fairly large chested and it did not look good on me.
