Loved IT
This dress is adorable. In person, more of the orangey background shows through the lace. I bought it for a summer wedding in Spain, but ended up returning it as I found a dress that was a little more sophisticated, as I felt a bit young as a 30 yr old wearing it to a wedding. I so wanted to keep it for everyday wear, but the price tag was far too much for that. Crossing my fingers that it goes on sale!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute, but see through...
I purchased this dress for a summer wedding in Spain but in the end went with another dress as this one was on the sheer side and did not appear to have as much shape as on the model.

Love Them
I love these shoes. They look great on your feet, but the do pinch the back of my ankle a bit.

Cute but roomy
I got this jacket in the meringue. The silk was heavy-weight, and the jacket itself was well-made. Like a kimono there are slits in the armpits. It was cut very generously, so if you want a closer fit, maybe order down. What I did not care for was the color...I thought it would be a bit more yellowy, but rather it was off-white, which would be ok, but the lace cuff is white-white. It does not seem like it matches. I also felt the lace was a bit cheap looking compared to the lovely silk...it is made from a very unnatural fiber. With that though, I do like it. I am just debating if I should exchange it for another color...
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Not for broad shouldered girls...
This dress is so cute. The fabric is soft and worn, but still of high quality. But sadly the dress was too small. It was nice and long for my 5'10" frame, but I do have a large rib cage and broad shoulders that simply would not fit comfortably in the dress. It pulled in those areas. I normally wear and 8 on top or medium with no issue though. So if you are a bit large on top, opt for a bigger size. I am hoping a large comes back in stock...fingers crossed.

Yikes!
I was so excited about this dress coming back in my size. I ignored comments about it being too big. I excitedly received my dress the day after ordering it. When opening my package the crocheted fabric was great and the lining was soft, but when I put the dress on, disaster struck. I ordered a medium, because there is no way I should be a small. But when I put it on, the dress was very wide and did not blouse nicely as in the picture. It just hung down. The elastic waist did not go all the way around either...there were just 4" portions of elastic around the waist. Then, there is no way this can be a dress on me (5'10"). The gray lining (what makes it opaque) only grazed the bottom of my butt-cheeks and the lace fell a couple of inches lower. There was no way that could pass even in the most risque of situations. I was thinking tunic maybe, but no, even though I like loose things, there was no appeal to the drape this piece created.

Smaller than Expected
This sweater is super soft, but I am afraid it will catch and pull easily. Also, I bought this for more of a tunic-y feel, but maybe because I am tall (5'10") the sweater rests a bit short...just about my upper hips. The sleeves are a little too short too and will need to be pushed up. A plus though is that the sweater does not have to be worn with the V in the back, if can be switched the other way as well. The tag is in the side-bottom hem, so this may have been the intention of the designer. I am keeping the sweater and hope it will hold up. It could be nice and cozy.
