New skinnies fan!
I never thought I'd be wearing skinnies, but J Brand proved me wrong! My first pair was a mid-rise pair in Nightfall, and since then I've been trying to scoop them up in every color. I'm a true size 28, but 28 in this material didn't cut it for me. These aren't actually jeans, but more of a soft, stretchy twill. Sizing up to 29 was perfect! I found the extra size gave me about 1/2" to squeeze in. (J Brand also has a somewhat thicker material more like denim in other skinnies and I take 28 in those). By end of day, they're pretty stretched out, but after a wash/dry they snap right back. I first got them so I'd have pants to stick I side my boots, but one morning when I couldn't get my foot into one of my boots, I just wore heels instead and these looked great with them. They also make your butt look awesome and hug your curves in a really flattering way! Highly recommended!

Pretty but not for me
I really loved this shirt on the model, and if your body is narrow like hers this blouse would probably look great on you. I have wider hips (size 28 jeans; size 6 in contemporary designers; small & medium) and a shorter torso compared to my legs, and this shirt looked frumpy on me. The belt is not attached to the blouse so I thought I could place it where I needed it to be so I wouldn't look so wide, but it just didn't work out that way. When I got rid of the belt altogether, the blouse was way too big and shapeless. The material is beautiful and the details are great, but I had to take away stars for fit. It's still a beautiful blouse even if it didn't work for me.

Great tee!
I love that this shirt isn't one of those beat up, ol' concert tee's. The different album covers are cool, too. I got the medium for a relaxed fit, and I do find it's cut in a slightly boxy shape, which is a welcome break from the fitted ladies concert shirts.

Beautiful shoes!
I got these today--LOVE them! They fit true to size and somehow slenders the feet despite being wedges. The height is also perfect and makes it incredibly comfortable. I can't wait to wear these tomorrow to work. By the way, these are perfect for work or anywhere. The print is also gorgeous! I am a size 7, and 7 was right on. Highly recommended!

Mixed feelings about this one
I really wanted to love this shirt, but I just like it. The color is beautiful, and I really like the crinkly gauze material; the "frayed" hem is great it you'll be wearing it untucked. I took a medium so I could get the slightly baggy look like the way it fits on the model. I could've easily gotten that look with a small, I realized, when it still was big after washing and drying. It did shrink a good bit, though, so the frumpy look improved. The pockets are far enough down that it kind of makes me look like I have saggy boobs! I'm constantly pulling the shirt back so it doesn't look like that, lol! Overall I'm not entirely disappointed; it is a good price on sale at half off. On a scale of 1-10, I'd say a 7 so it was a decent buy.

So pretty!
Deepa Gurnani has made a headband addict out of me, and this piece is just as lovely as the others! My other ones are in various shades of black, gold, gray, etc., and the cobalt blue gave me a much needed change. The blue is vibrant and the sparkle is just enough to catch the light in a flattering way--not too subdued, not at all tacky. The headband is snug and stayed put. Thanks for the fantastic hair jewelry!

So happy to be able to breathe in jeans!
What a huge relief to have jeans that won't force me to pull and tug just to get them on and keep them on! Although I believe jeans should hug your curves a certain way and should make you look pulled together, these are so refreshing! I love the relaxed look, and yet somehow it doesn't look sloppy. Do they run larger? Sure, they are supposed to. I took my usual size 28, and the waist fit perfectly with a relaxed fit around the hips and a loose fit around the thighs and legs. Fit was just like the model's. I could've gone down a size, but then the waist may have sat higher and the loose, relaxed look compromised. They are long for me because I'm 5'4", but I plan on getting them hemmed. I'll be wearing these a lot!

High quality slip that lets you a bra!
Any skepticism I may have had about this slip, being a die-hard Spanx fan, were quickly dispelled once I put it on and found that I really could comfortably wear my own bra! I was hesitant about this giving much support because the material looked thin, however I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and workmanship of this slip. What really made me spring for this was the fact that I am not too wild about the control power "panties" that allow you to "hook" your own bra to them via side straps. Not only is this a troublesome procedure, but I don't find it works that well--the "panties" drag your bra down or they just sit there not doing much to keep the panties up. This slip solves that problem beautifully! You put it on and everything is held in place and smoothed over. The top part also doesn't mush the boobs, and because the material is thin enough you can wear your own bra. Absolutely love it!

Perfect slip!
At first I was hesitant to spend $68 for a slip, but this piece is so much more than that. The material is very smooth and the slip is seamless (except the back part where it comes together but this is not a problem). My favorite thing about it is that it's double layered--there's a "short" cleverly sewn into the underside of the slip that gives a little extra support as well keeps the slip from rolling up. To say it has support isn't entirely correct because it doesn't suck you in, but it DOES smooth lumps and bumps. Very glad I spent a little extra money for this!

Great casual dress
Really great everyday dress to run errands in or lounge around in. The color is also very summery and perfect for a pick-me-up! The shirred sides hugs your body without being tight, and I also find it to be quite forgiving of flaws. The material is soft and thick enough that it's not see-through. The only problem I had was that I found the armholes to be rather large, and at first I had to wear a tank underneath. However this problem was easily fixed with an alteration to the straps. Otherwise, this dress is a pretty good buy!
