Didn't meet my expectations
In my quest for the perfect nude blouse, I was disappointed by this purchase. However, everything I didn't like about it was plainly evident in the stock photo. It runs painfully large. I ordered an XS. At 5'4" and normally wearing a size 2, it felt like I had borrowed my boyfriend's shirt. Shoulders went past mine (and I have broad shoulders!), and when tucked it, it still ballooned out awkwardly because it's not tapered at all. But, it's also large on the model, so I should have known this. Material is ok...silk is thick and built to last, but not delicate and feminine like what I was looking for. Also, the color is more of a peach than a nude, a little brighter than in the picture. It's not see-through, which is a plus. I guess it really depends on what you're looking for. This seems like a durable, masculine shirt, not the soft, feminine blouse I wanted.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Finally, a perfect nude silk blouse
This was everything I wanted in a blouse: soft, feminine,slightly sheer, the exact nude color I wanted. It's more a muted nude than a bright one, and obviously will look different on different skin tones. The arms on this shirt are very long, but so are mine, so it worked out. The material is delicate and high maintenance, especially in the button area. Whenever I unbutton, I have to make sure I don't snag any of the threads around the button hole. The drape is lovely, especially with the taper of the bottom of the shirt. When you tuck it in, it doesn't poof out (thereby making you look incredible skinny). I normally wear either a nude bra or a nude cami under it, and it blends together quite well. Runs true to size, but if you're between sizes, order larger because of the taper. Overall, perfect if you're careful and take care of your clothes.

Well Made Glitter Shoe
Love these!!! Bought them in gold, and it's not too "golden" because the glitter is still silver, just the material interwoven between it is gold. Arch is beautiful, height is perfect. Slight padding at the ball of your foot drastically increases comfort. There is a tendency for my heel to slip out of the back of pumps, but this was remedied with a simple heel grip. I still have to watch my step though. Well made, none of the glittery material ever comes off. I get compliments whenever i wear these. They match everything.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Gorgeous Shoe for Standing Only
Built like a true Giuseppe, this shoe is beautifully made with exquisite suede and high quality sole. The arch is perfect and makes your legs look miles long. When I put them on, I didn't want to take them off. However, my first steps in them resembled Bambi's. Not to say that it hurt to walk in them (it didn't), but the pitch affected my balance and I felt if I wore them out, all I would be able to concentrate on is not falling. Returned..so sad... runs 1/2 size small, like most designer shoes.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Not for the short-waisted
The material of this skirt is so luxurious and beautiful. It is actually just a hair darker than the picture. I'm sending it back after exchanging it for a smaller size because even the smallest size is still too big. (Size 0 fits more like a 4) It runs very large, but it could be because I am short waisted and the waist band is actually very thick, leaving excess material at the top. This is unfortunate because it would match with everything.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Gorgeous but too tall
I normally wear very high heels - all of my heels are at least 4 1/2 inches tall. This gorgeous creature is a whooping 6 inches with the platform. But somewhere, its construction has left me, a veteran heel walker, inconfident. I believe the reason is a combination of a loose ankle strap and the apex of the heel being a little too close to the base of the shoe. Aesthetically, these were by far the most flattering shoes I have tried on this summer. Its hard to tell from the picture, but the base of the platform is etched in the middle with an orange stripe that matches the foot strap on top. So beautiful... but ultimately would have unfairly lived in the box they came in, so they must go back. So sad..
