Neat charm...but worth the money?
I absolutely love this charm, as I am a huge peace advocate (you could say I'm a modern day hippie!) It's the perfect size and not too heavy or bulky for any dainty chain....My only question to myself...is this charm worth $55? Probably not. I think if it came with a chain I could probably justify the price a little, but I almost feel like it's something I could find in the mall for a lot cheaper and same quality...But, despite that concern, I am probably keeping it, since I had a gift certificate! And I know I will be wearing it every day!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Very Disappointed In This Purchase!
Don't get me wrong...these shoes are very cute and comfortable (although they did run small, which isn't a huge deal because they stretch slightly). But, I'm very unsatisfied with the quality of these shoes. I've worn them ONE time and they are already falling apart. The sole is completely coming unglued at the toe and the heel of BOTH shoes and flaps around. I'm going to try and glue it back, but honestly I feel like they should have at least lasted most of the spring, not just one wear! I've had better quality shoes (at a lower price) from payless, so this is seriously disappointing when I love these shoes :( And of course, since I've worn them now, I can't return them. Not happy.

Fantastic value!
I purchased a 7.5 and a 7 as I'm normally a 7.5 in shoes and 7 in most sandals (I prefer a close fit for sandals). However, the 7.5 in these fit perfectly. These sandals are very well made and a great value. I normally have a hard time wearing this style of sandal because my feet are very flat and my ankles are very skinny, so this style often flops around and won't stay put on my feet because there is too much of a gap in the t strap and around the ankle. But, fortunately, these are a perfect fit! The only (small) complaint I have is that they make noise when I walk. The inside sole material is shiny and my feet stick to it when I take a step. I'm thinking if it was instead a matte material, that wouldn't be an issue. All in all though, a great purchase, and I'm very pleased!

So cute!...Love the shoe, but...
I'm not sure how I feel about the fit. 1st, it seems quite a big large for a 7.5 (what I usually wear). I'm not sure if it's the style or I just have skinny ankles and flat feet, but it flops all around when I try to walk (just wearing it on carpet). The leather in the sole (the part your foot touches (not the part that touches the ground) is so slippery, the t strap is so loose, and the ankle band is not tight enough (even on the tightest hole) that with each step the sandal slips and slides and my foot doesn't even stay aligned with the sole. So disappointing because I loved these sandals in the photos. I can't decide if a smaller size would even help with the way the straps fit :( I will return it and maybe get 1/2 a size down if it's still available.

Stunning dress!
Wearing this for my wedding, most likely! Dress is a lovely ivory. Im normally a US4 (sm according to the chart) so I was nervous to order this as only xs is left. However, it fits perfectly! Its VERY delicate material, so I need to be extra careful taking it on & off. There is no stretch to it & no zipper. I feel like it will rip/snag at any moment, which surprised me. I expected it to be thicker, I guess. The material is flowy, silky, soft & very elegant. I feel like royalty in this dress! I do have a few concerns. The dress is super sheer & see through (part of it's beauty), so I'm unsure of what bra to wear. Also, the built in slip that starts at the waist only goes to mid thigh & rides up constantly creating bulges. I'm unable to get it to stay down! I'm considering taking it to a seamstress to see if it can be removed. Hopefully I can find a full length slip & bra I can wear without lines. Also is long, but I'm only 5'2" & expected that :) Stunning though!

Simply elegant!
I'm considering this dress for my informal, garden wedding (I would say definitely except I have another one coming from shopbop so I need to try it on before deciding!) This dress is very well made, beautiful in color, luxurious material and just so elegantly simple! It does seem to run a bit bigger than I expected, so I will exchange it for an xs (I'm normally a US 4, 34-29-34). It is, naturally, very long for me (but I'm only 5'2" and I expected it to be hemmed anyway!) This dress seems like it fits nearly exactly the way it does on the model (when I have a bit smaller size!) Overall a simply elegant dress. In person much more stunning, especially with the pleats under the waistline! The only concern I have is the material is "slightly" thin so I'm unsure of how I'll wear a bra/slip underneath without lines and bulges? It seems as though it was made with the intention to NOT have a bra worn...however, after having a baby, that is just not possible for me anymore these days :)

Not what I expected...
I was super excited to receive this dress. It looked perfect for my boho, garden, casual wedding! I was concerned about the color being too dark, but it is not at all! It's a gorgeous color. I ordered a small since I am normally a US 4 (34-29-34). But unfortunately the dress was enormously baggy on me. Also, although the material is very luxurious (it's got a slight sheen and is very soft and expensive looking/feeling) it is also quite heavy. So, the seam underneath the ruffles on the bodice hangs down in a bit of an unflattering way, making me appear pregnant. Also, I didn't notice in the photo on the model (probably because her hair is covering the straps up) but the strap ruffles seem to have quite a bit more material than I expected. It kind of wears me instead of the other way around (I'm 5'2" and small boned/petite). It must be returned, although I am considering trying the xs to see if it is any better. Overall gorgeous color and material. Also quality craftmanship!
