Great Mini
Love Susana Monaco's minis and can't get enough of them. Only complaint is that they run big and you can't go smaller than XS and shouldn't have to. The side hips are a little big for a true XS. Still adore. Perfect length, short and sexy but not obscene and can wear for almost anything from hanging out to work to date night. Dress up or down. Get compliments and feel great in these.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Standout Clutch
Bags are a bit like shoes in that they need to function well and not just look good. They must be comfortable to use in reality. Great aspects of this cool clutch are that it's very light, a lovely color, a clever, original design and large enough to hold what I need when going out, which is more than a cell phone and lipstick. Negatives are that it becomes weighted down in a somewhat unattractive way if filled too much and I'd like it to have a skinny detachable strap for ease of use. I feel it's a clever idea that isn't engineered perfectly. It did work well for my event and I'm happy to have it.

Heavenly Hose
I've been searching for NON-control top, sheer but not transparent, comfortable material, non-waist binding black tights for years. Finally I've found the right ones with these. Fit perfectly in size Small (105 lbs, 5'4"), seamless, comfortable, beautiful, non-binding. The price is steep so hope they hold up well. They seem sturdy enough to not run easily. Sexy.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Gorgeous Color, Terrible Fit
Beautiful color and love the back straps, however, this is unwearable. The armpits dip below any bra so unless you want to go braless in a super lightweight silk top, this doesn't work.

Great Color, Bad Fit
Love the color and fabric of this magenta top. It's gigantic, though, in an XS. It's so long, it's not even a mini dress. I considered bunching up and/or cutting it but decided it's still not great. In general, I like Enza Costa tank dresses a lot. The sleeves here extend a bit too far past the shoulder, so could be more flattering if cut in a bit more.

Unusual Evening Bag
Convenient size to this pretty, unusual bag. You could use it for day but for me it's for going out and I love the juxtaposition of a casual style with a dressy finish -- unusual chic. Soft and comfortable. I prefer a slightly larger evening bag without going to a daytime size and this is that. It funks up a sexy cocktail dress and dresses up a simple sexy skirt and top. I wanted a bag with a strap as opposed to a clutch for hands-free partying. it's expensive but I love it and feel it won't go out of style because it's not following a trend; it's making one. Everything you use should make you smile and this does that.

cute
this skirt in white looks nice under longer tops but there are challenges. the area between the lining and the top layer shows through on the white where it doesn't on other colors, which is not ideal and looks a bit too much like underwear. also the shifting seams don't bother me in other colors but in white show up more. i want the white for a super summer feel but these are issues with it. the material is very comfortable. it's very short and super fitted in looks but very comfortable on your skin.

Color is Rich Navy
Pretty tankdress is a bit more casual than photos make it appear. Nice and comfortable fabric. The color is much darker than the photos but still very pretty. Truly a rich navy, not at all the bright blue I expected. Even re-ordered to be sure I got the right item. Very form-fitting, which is great if that's what you're after. Lovely summer dress.

wrong proportions
love the cutouts. the color is darker than in all the photos and still nice. the material is comfortable and form-fitting. the proportions are for a taller female so although the dress was fitted on me, there was a bit of bunching fabric at the waist which was almost acceptable but i decided this should really fit great as a body conscious dress. it's also longer on me. i'm 5'4" 105 lbs, and xs fits great 99% of the time. love the designer. her clothes seem to run large overall.

nice cami
i'm a fan of susana monaco's simple mini but the tops and dresses in the same fabric don't work as well for me. the solidity of the fabric is not very comfortable in a top and doesn't drape easily so where it works very well in a straight mini, it's different in other silhouettes. i love the idea of matching tops with the bottoms to coordinate but they are nowhere near as comfortable. colors are lovely and i like the cut of this top very much. want softer fabric that still maintains its shape. probably would prefer a lighter weight version of this. the openness of this top makes it work better for me in terms of comfort than most of her line's tops and dresses.
