SO adorable, but two problems....
Oh I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted these pants to work, but sadly they will be returned. Fabric is great - very soft with a subtle sheen. Perfectly on trend for the 70's trend for this spring. BUT..two main problems. As highlighted in another review the waist is VERY small. It seems the pants are designed to hit slightly lower than the belly button, however, the size of the waist is really more akin with a high waist style - if only there was another inch it'd work. Also, the rise on front and back is very short - if the pants ride up it was unflattering between the legs on me - front and back. Three stars because the style is great and will work on those with very narrow waists and the quality is clear. Minus a star for each of the flaws.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

I really wanted to like these, but...
I had stalked these sandals online for quite some time and was really excited to get them in the mail, but then I tried them on. The larger strap at the front is somewhat awkward - it seemed to be a bit tighter than expected on my foot. Overall the design made my feet look wider - not a good look. I ordinarily love Cynthia Vincent's shoes, but was just not a fan this time.

Great sandals
Bought in the white color - really great sandal for spring. I feel like I could dress it up or dress it down. Fit is true to size - ordered my usual and had no side or back foot overhang. I've found in some zip back sandals that there's some ankle chafing going on - have not experienced that with these. Great buy - I think I'll get a lot of wear out of these.

Great dress for spring!
Got the dress in the natural color and it is the PERFECT spring dress! The colors of the flowers are much more vibrant in person than they appear on the images. The only negative about the dress is it is quite see-through at the bottom - nothing a half slip won't cure though. Also, you cannot tell in the photos but there is a front and back snap. Snapped up and it's good for day, but unsnapped looks cute for a night look/date. Even without the snap it's not too low cut!

Great Sheer Black Tights
I love the look of sheer black tights -- they seem to work equally well for the office as they do for going out. These tights are the perfect sheerness to transition from day to night. The lace waistband is really cool - you can't see any lines from the band under your clothes. It may be a bit complicated if you were wearing a skirt/shirt combo (because the lace band does go quite high up the tummy) but I like that because it has a bit of a sucking in effect. Also, for the price, these tights are of great quality. I've had similar Spanx tights that have ripped easily (often on the first wear) and these have lasted me through a couple nights out and washings since I've gotten then and still look new :)

Not for Me...
I was SOOOO excited for these pants to come back into stock, but sadly they just did not work for me :(. I have a smaller waist and larger butt/hips/thighs and have often had problems with the sizing of Paige. These pants were similar in my experience - the waist was much too big for the thighs and it just looked off on me. Sizing up only made the situation worse. Be warned if you have the same body type!

Shoshanna Never Fails!
LOVE this dress. I wore it New Year's Eve and got a lot of compliments. I do not think the photos do this dress justice. The beading is much more intricate than shown in the photograph, and the dress actually is more of a creamy color with a slight sheen rather than completely white. I wore it without tights, but you probably could wear sheer nude or black tights and still pull off the dress. Although the lining is a big snug, which is very common with Shoshanna (at least with me), the dress drapes beautifully over it and is very slimming.

So versatile!
This sweater is a great layering piece for fall and winter! I've found at least 4 different ways to wear it (with the draping at the back, the draping at the front, the draping wrapped around my neck, and the draping draped over my neck so it falls in the back). Needless to say, it is a very versatile piece, and a great break from black or gray cardigans. While the price is steep, the versatility and quality make up for it. Like a previous reviewer said, if you're on the fence, definitely get this cardigan!

My Fave Pair
Love these Joe's. Combo of the fit and color has made them my fave pair. True to form, Joe's are much more forgiving in the butt area for those of us with a little more back there than we'd like. These particular kind are great because you can ACTUALLY wear true skinny jeans while making sure your butt stays covered and is not being sucked in by the denim. They do tend to stretch quite a bit, but nothing out of the ordinary for Joe's. Also, these skinny jeans have a bit more give in the calf, so you don't feel like the denim is vacuum sealing the bottom of your legs, too. The wash on these is great! It's a non-uniform dark wash that can be dressed up or down. The seams are two colors, which is kind of quirky - one is an orangey color and the other is white - I personally like it.

Punched Up Basic
I have a couple long-sleeve grey tops (I always end up buying multiples) but I decided to add to that collection with this top because of the exquisite detailing on the front. The sheer panel overlays really elevate this top from being just a basic to being something that you can easily wear to the office or dress up for a slightly relaxed night out. While the top is a bit pricey, I think you can get a lot of mileage out of it. It's very soft and well-made, as DVF typically is.
