How hard is it to make a simple tshirt??
.. There's always got to be something that isn't quite right, isn't there? In terms of material, this shirt is perfect - not too sheer, but with a worn-in look that makes it feel a bit more special than the average tee. The problem is the fit - sleeves are very long, and although I like the rounded hem it's not quite long enough at the sides (but I do have a long torso). The biggest issue I have though is that it's neither fitted or loose - it's tight around the shoulders but then flares out slightly around the stomach area. Great if you're pregnant but not so much if not. In the photo here it looks very slimming and sexy, but I don't think this really qualifies as 'the perfect tee'. Still it's expensive to return so will probably keep it. I think I would have been better getting the Alexander Wang LS tee though.

Brilliant, sexy and classic basic
I haven't washed this yet so this opinion may change - but so far I could not think of a single thing to improve on this tank. I remember I actually bought the S size about 3 years ago, and was constantly having to pull it up so that it didn't slip down and reveal my bra to the world. I'd always loved the style though, so thought I'd give Mr Wang once more chance by going with the XS. And it's perfect (even though I still take a S in the AW tees). I dislike the term 'model off duty', but one understands why it's stuck - it really does give you that insouciant, sexy vibe that makes others wonder how you can look so good when all you're wearing is a bloody singlet! I don't find the arm holes or neckline indecently low and the fabric feel beautiful. Here's hoping it's still the same after the first wash - I really don't want to have to dryclean everything I own!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

A sexy, edgy skirt
Beautiful skirt - the right type of sexy, elegant as opposed to obscene. Depending on how fashion forward your work place is this would work as well with a shirt and blazer for work as with a tank and heels for a night out. It looks much better with fitted tops as opposed to loose tops though. I'm 5"7 and on me it hits just a bit closer to the knee than on the model - she's obviously a lot taller though so that's to be expected. My one gripe is that the material looks more like a dark grey than black - I would have preferred it to be a true black.

Great and surprisingly versitile
I bought these at 3am on a whim during the sale and then immediately doubted my purchase. I'm a big advocate of 'investment dressing', my usual wardrobe is a palate of tan, navy, black and cream, and I definitely steer clear of anything that might be deemed 'trendy'. So wedge sneakers? What was I thinking? However, once they arrived, I had to admit I was smitten. I was originally considering torturing my credit card to buy the IMs but actually like these better. They're sleeker and more subtle. I got the black pair, and people often don't notice the wedge until they see them from the side. And I've never received so many compliments on a pair of shoes in my life! Not just because they're novel, but people love how they elevate a simple sneaker to something that's wearable for practically all occasions. Needless to say, it's a yes for me. One final note - because they have mesh, you can see your socks through them. So either wear a complimentary colour or none at all :)

Perfect sandals
I am so glad I bought these sandals - such great quality, so comfortable, so classic, and even though yes, they are expensive, I see these lasting me a very long time. I was unsure about the sizing after reading all the other reviews, so I emailed the K Jacques store directly in St Tropez to enquire (I'm normally a 39-40). For the record, my feet measure 24.5cm in length and the 39 fits me absolutely perfectly. My advice - if you're considering getting these, don't waste money buying other cheaper sandals that only last a season, take the plunge and get these. Once the shock of the credit card bill wears off you'll be pleased you did!

Excellent jeans
These fit so well - I'm 5'7 and they're the perfect length, hitting just at the ankle (which means for once I don't need to roll my jeans up!). The denim is quite thick without being stiff. For flattering white jeans, you can't go past these :)

Not slouchy as expected
I probably would have adored this sweater if it were just a bit bigger. I expected it to be quite slouchy, but it was very fitted and short. I am a standard size 4 and ordered the small - maybe if I'd ordered the large I would have been happier, but I ended up returning it.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
