Not Good Paige
I am a huge Paige fan. Love them. They are usually all that I buy because of the amazingly good way they make my backend look better than any other jeans can. But these just do not work. I loved the true denim fabric-too often, Paige has had a cotton/poly blend that doesn't even feel like you're wearing jeans. It doesn't appear this way on the model, but in real lighting.the back and front are two different colors completely. The back is dark blue except for the backside, which is almost buff white...instead of enhancing your rear, it makes it look way bigger - like you're shining a spotlight on it. They are high waisted and the crotch area does not fit comfortably. Total fail. I returned them.

Love IT!!!
I have it in black and the fit is wonderful - typical of James Perse; form fitting as well as figure flattering - it gives you curves when you don't have them (well, I don't anyway!). If you haven't tried JP clothing, stick with the size guide and go up a size if unsure. I took a size 4 and typically take a 10 or 12 in Theory jackets and outer wear and it fits perfectly. I can get it over a shirt or blouse but over a large sweater it would look bulky and stretched out. I agree with what the other reviewers said - cuddly and cozy - soft and very comfy! Mine seems a bit longer than how it appears on the model - mid hip length and I'm 5'9".

Better without the Sapphires
I tried this ring and another similar one from E&J (the one with white sapphires along the top and bottom gold bands). This one looked much better to me without the white sapphires. While the sapphires were nice, they seem to become dull after a couple of wearings (at least they did on my other E&J rings) and tend to end up looking a bit like fake diamonds and makes the ring look cheap even though it has gold plating and sterling silver. The other reason was that the feather detailing adds enough interest and with the gold band highlighting it, it's interesting enough without adding bling. I have to say, this is one of my fave E&J rings now - I choose it most mornings over alot of others- and I've gotten tons of compliments on it. Sizing is true- only full sizes and sizing is a bit generous - if you're a 7 1/2, I'd try the 7 first before going to the 8.

Not Wowed
I initially thought this would be a great looking bootie - a combo of sneaker and boot, what's not to like? The reality was a huge let down. The combination doesn't look good. It would have looked better if they'd gone one way or the other - possibly made it look a bit less clunky with a trimmer profile. I'm a size 10 US (a 40 fit perfect, no need to size up but if you tend to run smaller rather than larger, you might have to size down to the next whole size) and the look was heavy and not attractive at all. I returned them.

Not a fan
I really like the green color - a nice change up from blue denim or khaki. But the style for this jean is not for everyone. The Lou Lou is closer to Laurel Canyon style in rise - sits very low. The legs are very tight - not so tight I couldn't get into them, but leggings tight. I tried sizing up but then the hips and butt were baggy. The style fits typical to Paige- I always take a 29 (5'9", 145 lbs, a 6 or 8 in Vince and Theory pants)and this style is no different. I did love the color, but the leggings closeness was a turn off. I would have liked it ok if the tightness ended at the knees, but the break did not come until just above my ankle and then it flares out wide at the opening - it looked odd on me (great on the model tho!).

Gorgeous...but too small
I didn't see this adorable flat until it was on sale and by then, alot of sizes had already sold out. But I tried my usual size and found it to be too small - I'd say at least a half size too small (thanks Shopbop for free returns!!). Sometimes with canvas shoes, there might be some stretch or ability to stretch out in the future, but it did not feel that way with these. That said - they are really pretty and worth a try if you can find your size - would look adorable with jeans, short skirt or even a mid length skirt and tank.

Really Pretty But Too Small
I love the print on these - just seems so...right. It gives a touch of bright, multi-hued floral without wearing the sofa or drapes, if you know what I mean. Unfortunately, the size is on the small side. I normally take a 10 or 40 in most shoes , but the 40 was like a size 9 - not even a 9 1/2 -really tight. And since they did not have a 41, my loss. The width was right on target for a ballet type shoe and the overall look and feel of the shoe struck me as a quality product - just beware the sizing here.

Great Shirt - How About Other Colors?
This is a beautiful shirt - the cotton fabric is just heavy enough to hold its shape but light enough for spring and early summer. The fit is typical for James Perse - as it shows on the model, it's a close fitting shirt so a size 4 (a large in the conversion chart) ifits a 38 bust. I usually take a large in regular fit Theory and Vince tees or button down shirts and this JP 4 fits me perfectly. I just wish they would stock some other colors...this is an okay shade but a bit bland for me - I disappear in it!! How about some army green or shades of blue, Shopbop???
