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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

The perfect casual clutch
I can not wait to use this clutch! The quality of this little purse is very good and fits my iPhone, lipstick, packet of tissues, money and my chunky set of keys without looking stuffed. The leather is really soft but not floppy. It holds it's shape nicely.

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.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Super stretchy and soft but ...
These jeans are extremely comfortable. The coating is beautiful. I purchased my usual size. They actually fit perfectly. However after 15 hours of wearing them, they have stretched out a lot. They don't look as form fitting like the morning I put them on. The knees are baggy and the bum is not as tight either. I'm not sure how I will get them back to the original shape as the washing instruction is dry clean only. Not sure if I should risk washing them. I'm quite disappointed. My other pair of paige verdugo jeans I own are perfect.

Beautiful and bright
This blouse is very bright which is perfect for me because I wear a lot of black on the bottom. I will wear this to work and casually. It's a very versatile blouse. I am 50 kg, 5'2" and XS is the perfect fit for me.

A touch of leopard
I own the white iPhone 5 and this DVF case us really pretty. It appears to be good quality and it fits nice and snug. It's exactly the way a like it. The designer's full name is printed on the side. You can not see it in the photos. Some people might not like this. It does not faze me.

A dress that can be dressed up or down
This DVF dress is really cute on. The silk fabric is beautiful quality and the print is fun. I'm am very petite at 5'2" but I don't think it swallows me up at all. I think other petite girls may think this dress can be overwhelming. I can't wait for our Spring to come to wear this dress. I tried on high heal sandals for a dressier look and flat sandals for a casual look and both look absolutely fantastic. Totally a genius dress that can be dressed up or down. I love it! FYI, I bought a size 0, 33" hips, 26" waist and 110llb.

Beautiful skirt
This skirt is really beautiful. I bought size 0. I'm 5'2", 110llb and 33" hips. The skirt did fit but I decided it was too short on me. I returned the skirt. Maybe a size 2 would have been better as it would have sat slightly lower on my hips.

Not what I expected
Based on the reviews I decided to buy the James jeans. I loved the colour and they were very stretchy and comfortable. But I disliked the thinness of the fabric. It is probably a great pair of jeans for summer. Also the legs were baggy behind the knees on me. They were not really form fitting leggings on me. I'm 5'2", 110llb and have size 33 hips and I purchased size 26. I've sent the jeans back. I prefer the fit of my Paige verdugo jeggings than these jeans.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
