Heavy umbrella ....
This umbrella is well constructed and hence, quite heavy. With the amount of stuff I carry in my handbag, I really dislike the weight. I also don't like the way it closes. Unless I am doing it wrong, it is quite clumsy to retract. Releasing it is great as it simply pops up when you press the button. But geez, closing it is quite an effort. I will play around to check if I am retracting it incorrectly. In respect of the print, I love it's boldness.

Well tailored blazer
I purchased this blazer to match the elite skirt. It is very well made. Although I purchased the skirt in size 0 and it fits perfectly, I purchased a size 2 in the blazer after further research on the Theory website size chart. I'm glad I did as the shoulders do fit very well. There is probably a little extra room in the chest area as I do have a small chest. I think a size zero may have been too narrow in the shoulders. My only complaint is the sleeves are a little long. Other than that, it's a nice jacket.

Versatile little dress
Such a versatile little dress which can be dressed up or down. I'm 5''2 110 llb and size 0 fits perfectly. Note, you must wear nude underwear as the pink silk fabric is just a tad shear. I love this dress!

Simple and easy to wear
This is my first blazer from this designer and I love it. The cut is simple, not fussy and drapes beautifully. It definitely looks better unbuttoned. I bought a size 0 which fits perfectly on me unbuttoned. If I button it up, it looks strange. I don't have any problems with the sleeves being tight (and my arms are not stick thin either) but I can understand some women might find the arms snug as the sleeves are really fitted. The colour on the label is described as "Dijon' ie like the mustard .. I attend to agree! The colour in real life is slightly darker than depicted on my iPad but I just love the colour!

Beautiful black skirt
The quality of this skirt is excellent. This is my first piece from Theory and I was not sure about the sizing. I'm usually a size 2 and ocassionally size 0 but after reading the models dimensions of the size 2, I decided to size down to size 0 (my hips are only 33"). Thank goodness I did as it fits perfectly. FYI, I'm size 26 in jeans. It lost one star as I wish the skirt was cut more "pencil". Other than that, it's a beautiful fitted skirt on me with plenty of stretch and very comfortable. I really like the contrast panels down the side of the skirt.

Gorgeous silk tulip skirt
I have eyed this skirt for a while. I still can't believe I purchased it at 70% off. I'm 5'2", 110 pounds and the size 2 is perfect on me. Obviously the skirt is not as short as the model in the video but on me the hem Is about 3-4cm above my knee which is perfect on me. I also love the print. It only lost one star rating because the skirt is not lined but for this price, it is worth it as it is silk.

Beautiful dress
This is my first dvf dress and it will not be the last. I purchased a size 2 and it is definitely billowy on top but I love it. I could have sized down but size 0 was sold out at the time so I bought the size 2. No regrets as I just love the look. The silver color is really nice, the workmanship of this dress is first class and the silk has a little stretch which is really comfy as well.

Nice quality, great price
Although this shopping bag is larger than I expected, it really is a great carry bag for the weekend, to carry your extra shopping and even the beach. The material is thick and sturdy. Makes a nice gift for your friends.

Simply beautiful and cosy
This beanie is just gorgeous. If you are looking for a slouchy beanie, then this one fits the bill. The print is timeless, it is extremely warm and super soft. Note, it is a thick beanie and it does look like just as the model is wearing it. I've rated it 4 stars due to the fact I found found a loose thread. As I am in Australia, I will not be sending it back as I need it for my trip to northern Japan in a few weeks. It will not be a big deal to fix it up myself but for a beanie this expensive, it should be perfect on shipping

Excellent quality socks
I purchased these socks in grey and sand. The grey is really nice. Sand is just average. They are very soft and the quality is excellent. I'm 5'2" so they just cover the middle of my knee cap which is exactly where I wanted them so they are longer to have them peeking out of of my boots. I bought these specifically to wear with my boots and leggings in Japan in a few weeks.
