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.

Love that color!
The beautiful green sold me on these boots. And dark green is a neutral, right? A sturdy heel under 3" is wear all day stuff for me, so I expect to wear these boots with cropped pants and longer styles too. I always wear a size 8, and the 8 fit fine. If the boots get roomier from wearing, I'll just put on a slightly thicker sock. The distressing is well done - it doesn't make the boots look old and worn, just kinda rough. Getting the boots on and off doesn't involve a struggle;the elastic gusset in the side stretches. In a perfect world, I would have liked a more graceful, pointier toe, but the good news is if you're self-conscious about your big feet, these make your feet look small.

Great flat sandal
These sandals do not look cheap. The combination of metallics is unusual and makes them very versatile. I read the reviews and yes, they run wide. But if you have a wide toe box, that's a good thing. My pinky toes aren't squeezed by the horizontal strap across the foot. Bliss! I have a narrow heel, so I put in an adhesive insole - cutting off the top, of course - which keeps my foot from sliding around and chafing. With that added, they were comfy the first time I wore them. The ankle strap is loose, but if it starts irritating my skin I'll just attach some moleskin to the wrong side of the strap. The great price and styling made it worth it to work on the comfort a little.

Great jacket
The color seduced me, and it's as gorgeous as in the picture - a purply blue. The shininess of the jacket reminds me of the look Moncler made popular (for much more $$$) I'm 5'6'' and a 4 or small 6 on top, so I considered ordering the XS, but the jacket has adjustable pulls inside, and tightening them up a little made it fit narrower on the hips, so the S is just fine. I wore it on a warm ski day (over 30) with one light layer underneath and wasn't cold. Love the double zipper, and how light the jacket feels. It looks great with white, red, black, navy or orange, and if I can find a pair of lime green ski pants, I'll grab them in a second.

my new favorite sweater
I ordered the khaki color and the sweater is gorgeous and very well made. I'm 5'7", and the Small is just long enough to wear with high-waisted trousers or a slightly low waisted pant, even without a layer underneath, as in the picture. Although it isn't snug in the body, the sweater is so well cut that it doesn't look sloppy or baggy, partially because he sleeves are skinny, and the shoulder fits well. I'm usually a 4 or 6, and the Small fits. The sleeves are rolled up and stitched at the wrist, but it was easy to take out the stitching to make them full lenth. I was afraid the shoulder buttons would be gaudy, but they're pretty subtle. It's a cozy, warm knit, but not too heavy to wear indoors. It looks like a more expensive sweater (Chloe? Celine?). Definitely worth the money.

summer heat
I wanted this dress for those hot summer days when you'd really rather be naked - mostly for wearing around the house. It will work just fine for that, because it's very light, soft, and loose on the body. But it isn't baggy around the hips, which is good. I'm normally a 4-6, but the XS was the right size. I'm 5' 6" and it was a little shorter than I'd hoped, but the uneven hem helps (some areas are longer.) It has a low armhole and neckline, but looks cute with a black tank underneath. The print in black and white is cool - almost looks like an animal print, but not quite.
