The perfect black jeans
I've been longing for the perfect black jeans, and now I've found them. I'm usually a 27 or 26 in jeans- 5'7", 116 pounds. I ordered these in a 26 because I didn't want them as slouchy as in the photo. They fit really well, in the waist, the rear, in the length, and the legs are narrow. But if you want a slouchier look, I'd suggest ordering up a size or more. The coated effect is nice, and doesn't make these into a leather wannabe. But it brings them up a level from plain ole denim. It feels like they have a lot of stretch in them.

Beautifully made
These sandals have a simple, sophisticated European designer look. (You know the one I mean, it starts with a C and is designed by a woman.) The leather is handsome and very soft. The only problem I had with them, and it was a deal breaker, is even with a Velcro closing, the ankle strap was too loose. Ok, I admit to having skinny ankles, but they're not freaky thin. The sandals just didn't look good with a strap that didn't hug the ankle,, so I sadly send them back.

Cute modern cargos
These are cute! I'm normally a 27, sometimes 26 in jeans that run big, but the 27 in these pants fits well. I like the nice, narrow leg that isn't tight. The fabric on the front pockets doesn't look as different from the rest of the pant as in the picture. That's a good thing.

Perfect white jeans
I love these jeans! I paid attention to other reviewers' comments that they run big, and ordered a 26 instead of my usual 27. I am 5'7", 116 pounds and they really fit, but not like a baggy, slouchy boyfriend jean. They are almost a skinny jean for me, except that the thighs aren't tight. The waist doesn't gap, and hits high enough that it doesn't create any muffin top. The fabric is light enough for a summer jean. I'd like to find them in a dark blue or black.

Cute and comfy
I'm normally a size 8, and the 8 fits perfectly. I wore them with litlte toe covers (like 1/4 peds) the first time but I think they'll work barefoot too. I have no idea how long they'll last and I'm afraid they might stretch out a little since the leather is soft, but a smaller size wouldn't work in the length. I got the gold, which is gorgeous and will go with everything. They remind me of Tom's - in between a shoe and a slipper. They're so light that I'll think nothing of throwing them in a suitcase as an alternative to sandals.

A yummy sweater
This very soft and cozy but not heavy sweater is "inspired by" an Alexander Wang design, and looks great. I ordered it in a S, and wasn't thrilled, so I ordered the XS. The neckline, sleeves, armholes, and overall shape were better in the smaller size. This is a fitted style that looks best snug, like a well-cut tee. I'm a 2-4 on top, 5'7", 118 pounds and the XS was perfect. I wear it tucked into low-waisted black or gray pants. I'm thrilled.

A splendid Splendid
Anyone who's ever worn a Splendid tee know how soft and comfy they are. I wear Henleys for hiking in the mountains. This one is light and cool, and it drapes nicely. I got a Small, which is my normal size, and it fit well. My only gripe is the buttons and tabs meant to secure rolled up sleeves. I think that's such a dorky look. The first thing I do when I get a top like that is cut off the buttons and the tabs. I wore the sleeves rolled up on a warm day, and they stayed in place just fine.

Cute but runs big
This is a great looking summer top. I'll wear it with royal blue or orange cigarette pants, or with wide-legged black silk trousers or anything navy or white. You get the idea: it looks good with a variety of bottoms in my closet. The print is bright and cheerful and the top is beautifully made - lined in a soft cotton and the piping is perfectly sewn. The only problem is it runs really big. I'm 5'7", 118 lbs and normally wear a 6 or 4 on top, sometimes a 2. I ordered the 4 and had to return it. Found it in a 2 elsewhere, and the sleeves are good 'n skinny, it isn't too small in the hips and almost works, but I'll probably have it taken in. It's very large in the bust. I'm a 32C, so not flat, and narrow through the midriff. Since this is a surfer style, it should be really fitted, not baggy around the middle, and a little tailoring can make that happen. Great for travel - throw it in a suitcase and wear with pants and you're dressed for dinner.

Soft and feminine
This is a cool sweater that doesn't look like a million others. I'm 5'7", 120 lbs, and usually wear a 4 or 6 on top. I ordered this sweater in the XS, and it fits well. The Small probably would have been okay too, but it was sold out and the smaller size is a little more fitted and dressier.The sleeves are nice and long. The neckline isn't too low to keep you warm, and it isn't as loose and sloppy looking as it seemed in some of the photos (of the other color.) I think it looks much cuter without a shirt under it, and it's even a little peekaboo sexy. It works with a nude bra; no cami needed underneath. I like it with camel, beige, khaki or brown wool or cashmere pants.

So cozy!
This sweater is delicious. I'm 5'7", 120 lbs, and usually wear a 4 or 6 on top. I ordered the Small and the fit is perfect. It isn't boxy at all - rather curves in beautifully at the midriff and waist without being tight. I can't stand loose turtlenecks - this turtle is snug and high enough. I wear it with a pale gray cashmere tank underneath. I think it looks weird with skin showing through the open knit on the sides, but any pale camisole or tank, or even black, looks great worn underneath. The sweater is more of a pretty pale gray than a cream. It's a terrific buy, and a classic style.
