so great!
I have to say, these have exceeded my expectations. If they weren't $35 I would buy several more pairs. I have worn them a couple of times already in windy 20 degree NYC weather and they have kept me warmer than any of my pants could have. The gusset on the crotch makes them just that much more comfortable than other sweater tights, and I feel like they'd probably be good for cyclists. The waistband is just the right ratio of tight to loose, so it's neither falling down nor creating an indent in my silhouette (the way most tights do). Not sure how they will stand up after several washings, but I like them so much that I will take extra good care of them.

very comfortable
These were so soft, and stretchy, and I even wondered if I could go a size down in them. The wash isn't quite what I was looking for, and had some whiskering that I didn't like. I would definitely buy these in a different, more even-toned rinse, though, and I will now keep my eye out for this brand!

so comfortable!
I liked the way these fit, and based on usual madewell sizing they were actually a tiny bit larger than I expected. In person they are very whiskered, whereas I had thought they'd have more of a faded look. I really hope that they eventually release this cut in darker colors, because my only issue was that these weren't the right color (and not quite what was pictured).

good quality leggings/changes in brand
I bought these to replace a beloved pair of Splendid leggings I bought about five years ago. I think they are the same blend, but these are not quite as soft and not quite as stretchy. This is fine, as I had had the old leggings for a long time and they were somewhat lived-in. These are good quality, though, and I'm sure I will get good use out of them.

Agree with other reviews
The pattern on this dress is beautiful, but in person it was just too short. I got a 10, and I am 5'9, 165/hourglass shape. I was able to zip it up, but it looked like it was made for a shorter body than my own. I have had this problem with Free People clothes in the past, as well as the fact that a lot of their clothes seem overpriced for what you get. Even on sale I did not think this looked like a $90 dress. But the pattern is cute, and a paisley dress in sunset colors was too tempting to pass up. Hopefully this will work better for another lady out there.

Great Coat
Super cute! It came just as it started to get too warm to wear it, but I can't wait to wear it all over the place this Fall. It's a great, sophisticated coat and clearly very well made. I feel like I will wear this coat for many, many years. In a perfect world the bottom of the coat might be designed with a bit wider of an a-line, but there's a button in the back that you can undo and that's really my only complaint. Great coat, great price (SB sale price was cheaper than CM's in-store sale price!) , and as always the shipment came quickly and in perfect condition. Thanks, SB!

cute but very small
These were much smaller than I thought they would be! You almost have to squint to make out that they are skulls. But they are nice studs, and work well for secondary piercings. (I have some in my earlobes, but I imagine they are tiny enough to look cute on your nose or in your upper ear, if that is why you are looking for studs.)

great black jeans!
These fit like a glove right out of the box! I really love these pants. *SO* flattering. As you can tell from the similar descriptions, these are almost exactly the same cut as Citizens' Ava Straight Leg jeans. I have a pair of those that are now falling apart from heavy use, so I decided investing in a pair in black would be good for my wardrobe. So far I only have one complaint: the material is a little heavier than the jeans, and as someone else already pointed out they stretch out a bit between washes. I can't tell if this is also because I have been wearing them all the time! I know that with nicer jeans you are not supposed to wash them as often as, say, jeans from Gap, so it's a bit of a bummer that I will have to wear these more sparingly. But still: great look and great fit. If you like the Ava, this will be a great pant for you.
