A very pretty dress
What more can I say .. I love the print of this dress and it is super comfy indeed. The dress fits so much better than another clover canyon dress I just sent back.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

A very functional wallet
I bought this wallet as a present for my mum. She loves it. The zipper is very smooth. It lost one star as the colour orange was brighter than expected. I'm using an iPad so maybe the colur may be different on a desktop computer.

Pretty dress but ....
I agree with the previous reviewer ... the dress is very big in XS and looks very droopy on. I looked ridiculous in this dress. This dress is probably made purposely oversized as there is no zip nor buttons to do it up as you simply pull it on ver your head. I will be sending ot back. It is such a shame because the floral print is very pretty.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Gorgeous shorts
I purchased this pair of shorts in silver a while back in size 2. The shorts are more cream with a metallic thread and slight sheen on the fabric which is so beautiful and subtle. These shorts can be dressed up or down. I have worn mine dressed down and they are stunning. As usual, size 2 fit perfectly.

Great cut
I'm a size 2 in the A & O cady cuff shorts of which I own in definitely fabrics. However, a size 2 in these beautiful tailored pants made my bottom look huge! The leg was also quite tight. I was so disappointed. I think I will need to size up to a size 4 and I believe they will fit better. I agree with another reviewer that the fabric is not that good. It is on the very very thin side for the cost. Such a pity.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Comfy tee
This tee is very soft and comfortable. I purchased the colour white. Just a little transparent.

These feel more like jeggings
I purchased my usual size 26 in Plymouth. The fit is extremely fitted and the fabric is nice and thick. However I decided to return the jeans because the colour of these jeans are just like my R&B Kensingtons but without the few faint white marks. I thought it was too similar in colour to keep. They don't feel like my Kensingtons as the are definitely a more fitted jean.

A beautifully crafted blazer
This blazer is stunning on. I have several Smythe blazers in size 2. The sleeves are definitely more fitted in this blazer. Nonetheless the fit it just perfection and beautifully crafted. The only reason I gave this blazer 4 stars is the fabric. I'm not convinced that the fabric is 100% wool although the label says it is. It does not look nor feel like other wool suiting blazers I own. The texture appears to look like polyester. I will still keep it as I love the fit.

Timeless booties
I have been contemplating these for a very long time. The price was holding me back. I finally took the plunge during the f & f sale. I purchased my usual size 36 and could have actually gone down half a size. No problem as slightly thicker socks will do the trick. I love them and they are a high quality bootie. I definitely don't think the booties are worth the $495 price tag for a product that is made in China. Nevertheless, a classic bootie and very comfortable

Subtle coated jeggings
I love the subtle coating of these jeans and the fact they can be washed in cold water. I bought my usual size in size 26. As some other reviewers have noted, they are a little smaller than expected. Hence, one star was deducted because of this fact. Also, for Australian readers, these jeans are so similar to the Country Road coated jeggings right down to the percentage of cotton, elastine and polyester. Was lucky to have purchased these during f & f sale. I have yet to wear them but if they stretch a little, then these will be perfect.
