Not for me
Unfortunately this dress didn't work for my shape. I ordered it in black in my normal size (XS) but it was too long and wide on me to be flattering (I'm about 5'3"). Since the fabric is quite sheer (though not necessarily bad quality) the dress looked more like a nightshirt and I had to send it back.

Cute & fun
I was impressed with this sweater and have already received lots of compliments from people who like the octopus design. It's comfortable, the colour is cute and flattering, and things like the yarn and stitching of the patch are good quality. As someone with a long torso, the sweater was more cropped on me than it appeared on the model, but I actually like this - it creates more shape when a blouse is worn underneath, for example.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great quality
This skirt seems really well constructed; it's nice and solid and doesn't ride up when you walk. Also, it's double layered and of a decent length, so you don't have to worry about showing your knickers in any way! The colours are great - I felt I needed to bring some warmth to my overly grey wardrobe and this works really well. Very happy!

Cute!
These are really cute, simple and effective. For me personally, they are a little large/heavy to wear as "all day, every day" earrings, but can be worn for long periods once in a while. They are great if you are wearing other gold jewellery and just need earrings that don't overtake anything else.

Great basic
This jumper is not necessarily anything special, but is a great practical basic for winter (well, if you live somewhere with mild winters). It's nice and long, warm, and the cuffs around the sleeves and hem sit nicely without going baggy, thank goodness. The pointelle knit is cute and the buttoned part sits nicely without gaping. I've got sensitive skin and can't wear most types of wool because it's too itchy, so I appreciated being able to find a relatively affordable cashmere piece to get me through winter.

Nice to wear
These pants were a lot lighter and softer than I was expecting, which is nice. They fit TTS, but if you have put on a couple of extra winter kilos like me then they aren't that forgiving because of their lightness. Other than that, they are flattering and comfy - they have a high enough rise that you're not worrying about any 'indecent exposure'! My only problem would be that the elastic in the waistband doesn't seem to be secured to anything, so if you're not careful putting them on it can twist. Other than that, great purchase.

Poor quality
This top is massive - much wider and boxier than the picture indicates. (I ordered my normal size, XS). I'm not sure how they got it to look so fitted on the model. It's also a lot more sheer than in the picture. It was too much trouble to send it back so I kept it as a pyjama top. After one wear, the sleeves stretched out hugely and are now baggy around my elbows and the whole thing is losing whatever shape it used to have. A little hole is already appearing at the bottom of one of the sleeves. Okay, so it probably takes a bit more wear-and-tear when worn as a pj top, but I would have expected it to last a bit longer than one wear. Really not worth the money in my opinion.

Too fun!
I love these boots - they are so comfy and fun! The colour goes with so many different things and the price is really reasonable. On me they were a little bit large, but I put "as expected" because it was not enough to warrant going down a size and won't be a problem. Only reason I gave 4 rather than 5 stars is because they are quite hard to get on and off (especially off!) since the suede has so much grip. Also, when I was threading the laces, they were kind of...shedding (?) a bit, although I have a feeling this will stop over time. Overall really happy with these boots!

Cool & comfy
I love this T-shirt! In this case I didn't want a huge oversized tee, so I just ordered my normal size (0, or 'Petite' as the tag says) and what I got was a tee that sat really nicely with a little bit of room left all over, particularly around the waist, which was perfect (didn't want a skin tight tee after all!) Maison Scotch tees are often longer than others and this is no exception - perfect for people who have a long torso like me. The wide neckline and rolled up sleeves give it a feminine look and the photo print is really cool. Love it!

Soft and comfy
This top is really nice to wear - it feels very soft and silky but is pretty thin so you will probably need a cami. It looks really nice worn off the shoulder with the sleeves pulled up. I only wish the band at the bottom had a bit more strength to it to hold the hem in place a bit more, since it often rides up (however, I have a long torso and the top is short on me, so others might not have this problem). Same with the bands around the sleeves - if you wear the sleeves pulled up and want to pull them down later, they become baggy around your wrists. Admittedly I've only worn this top once (apart from trying it on) and haven't washed it yet so hopefully they will go back when washed. However, these are relatively minor issues for me; overall this top is really nice.
