The perfect denim maxi skirt
I have been looking for a denim maxi skirt for ages and this one is perfect! I am thrilled with the 'line' of the skirt, the way it flows when you walk and the quality of both the cut and fabric. I have an hourglass figure and think that the design is really flattering - much more so than jeans. I bought the size 30 as the sizing chart indicates this is the same as an Australian 10/12, which is my waist size, however, I could have gone down a size as the fabric 'gives' on the first wear and sits quite low on my hips until I wash it again. I'd say that the size 30 is closer to an Australian 14. I'm 5'10'' and the skirt is the perfect length to wear with flats. It also looks great with boots. If you're thinking about buying this skirt, don't hesitate!

Good quality - great value
I love this jacket, however, it is a bit big for me. I ordered the large because the sizing chart indicates that this is the equivalent of an Australian 12. It is more like an Australian 14, so it is not quite as tailored through the torso as I would have liked, although the width of the shoulders is a good fit. I'm 5'10" and the length of the jacket is great, sitting nicely at the waist. The fabric is soft and the overall construction of the jacket is of a high quality - very good value for the price. I probably should have ordered a medium, however, once I run a few darts through the torso, it should be a great fit.

Great dress and amazing value
I love this dress! I originally saw it at the beginning of the season but didn't get it because it was polyester, and I usually buy silk because of the superior drape and feel. What a mistake - wish I had bought it months ago! The fabric is fabulous, the dress is fully lined and it doesn't crease - perfect for travelling with. Also, I think that the large graphic print is really flattering because of its diagonal lines. I ordered a large because according to the sizing chart the equivalent Australian size is a 12. I think that this dress is more an Australian 14 to 16, so I will have to take the elastic in a bit to get a better fit. Some people might find the dress quite long. I'm 5'10" and it touches the ground by about an inch when I'm standing in bare feet, although the length is perfect with a small heel. This is my new 'favourite dress' and what a bargain!

Very long - not what expected
These pants are made from a lovely soft fabric that drapes really well, which is where the two stars come from. I'm 5'10" (178cm) and an Australian size 12 (which I think is an American 6-8 depending on the designer). I ordered a large, which fitted comfortably in the waist and hips. However, even in 3 inch heels, these pants dragged on the ground by a couple of inches. The hem is just a raw edge, so they could easily be adjusted with a pair of scissors, however, the crotch hung half way down my thighs (which I hadn't picked up from the pictures) and I didn't feel comfortable with 'the look' - I've returned them. It may be that the term 'disco pants' implies a low slung crotch deisgn and the misunderstanding was mine.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

A lot of dress!
Before buying this dress I read all of the previous reviews, so I was prepared for it to be very full and a lot of fabric. I am 5'10" and 73 kilograms so I felt confident that I could carry it off - I must admit that I think I do, but only just! (I bought the dress in a size medium.) If you are any shorter than me the dress will drag on the ground and it's a very big hem to take up if you had to. I wore it out with heels, a wide black leather belt at waist level and a fitted denim jacket and was thrilled with 'the look'. I'm hoping to wear it with flats during summer, where it will just touch the ground. I was looking for a long casual black dress with a bit of a 'design edge' and it fits the bill very nicely, however, I would agree with other reviewers that it is quite pricey for what you get.

very happy
The fabric is beautiful and the fit is perfect. I'm a 36C that usually wears a 'half cup' style of bra and this one gives me a lovely shape that stays in place all day long. Having had and fed 2 children, I need a supportive bra and this one does the job beautifully. It's perfect for an everyday bra with a 'design edge'.

Lovely fabric
Beautiful fabric, however, I found them to be smaller than expected, so they don't fit me very well. I'm hanging on to them until I finish losing my pregnancy weight. I'm an Australian size 12 to 14 at the moment (which I'm pretty sure is an American 8 to 10) and a 'large' would usually fit nicely.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
