Investment Piece to last decades?
I normally wear a (UK) size 8-10 on top and size 4-6 on the bottom - I tried on this dress in the (US) size 4 at the recommendation of the sales assistant in a DVF shop once, but felt it emphasized my bust too much (I have no hips to balance the top). So, I went up to a size 6 and though it sat just below my knee, I preferred the way the skirt flared out and balanced my top half. The size 4 was very tight overall and I preferred the dress to skim my figure as opposed to clinging to it. Anyway, the silk jersey is wonderful and hugs in all the right places. As an aside, it looks just as amazing on my 50 year old mother so I'm looking forward to wearing this for many years to come :)

Versatile quality piece
I purchased a different colour but the style is the same - bearing that in mind, I still have only positive things to say about this bag. I used this bag for a month-long holiday as a carry-on and everyday tote - it was sturdy, durable and comfortable. It has plenty of pockets for bottles and miscellaneous bits and bobs, the hardware is of a high quality and I appreciate that the bag is easy to clean with just a few wet wipes. It is a HUGE bag that fits a surprising amount so good for all busy mums or those that carry their entire life in their bag.

Exactly what I was expecting
This watch is very, very shiny, with a large face and it's quite heavy, but it's exactly what I was expecting. This watch is very yellow and stands. out. I had a colleague gawk at it and she incorrectly guessed that it was an extremely expensive watch. I was a little hesitant about ordering initially because I was concerned at how it would be packaged/sent to the other side of the world, but I was happily amused with the fact that the watch was in the Michael Kors box, in another box, in another fluff-filled ShopBop box, in another air-bag-filled shipping box :D To those wondering how it will look on, I would suggest logging onto Pinterest and scouring the endless photos of fashionable girls and their MK watches. Best of luck!

Minimal stretch
I bought this dress in XS when I normally buy dresses in a Small as Free People garments tend to run on the larger side. I selected "True to Size/As Expected" because I expected the XS to fit like a Small - which it does - HOWEVER, there is minimal stretch and I am quite busty so I probably should've gone for the Small (that would've fit like a Medium). But overall, the dress itself is very trendy, a great price and the low scoop back is delightful. The material is as thin as it appears on the model, which I like because a thick material I think would've been too dressy and prevented me from having the option to dress it down. The hemline is shorter than what I expected; I'm 160cm so all bottoms tend to fall a little lower than how it appears on models but in reality it's quite true to the picture.

Pleasantly surprised
Despite the other reviewers complaining that the top was too low I bought this top anyway for the shoulder pad detail. Not only do I really like the shoulder pad detail in person but I don't think the top is that ludicrously low cut. Granted, I always wear camisoles underneath but I actually really like that it's more low cut than your typical v neck top. I bought this top in a Small, I'm about 160cm and am a 14DD - I find normal v neck tops still give me a mono-boob look. A v neck that actually 'cuts' through my bust is something I really needed.

Trendy and Edgy
Though I selected 'larger than expected' this is what I expected as all the previous reviewers stated this. I would've normally chosen a Small but went with the XS and am glad I did. The bottom of the sweater is quite roomy - I think it would've looked nicer if it were more clingy - and care must be taken when wearing this as it's definitely something that'll easily snag. It's really lightweight so I take extra care when handling it so as not to over-stretch it. It's not an investment piece for sure and I don't expect it to last many years but I have been searching for an on-trend sheer detail top like this for a while (Alexander McQueen has done one in silk and chiffon).

Organised, Minimalistic Chic
I bought this solely for the purpose of housing my keys as I was getting sick of key scratches on every other item in my handbag. I couldn't get a good indication of size from the pictures so I drew on paper how large it would be according to the dimensions provided. I am satisfied with the product as it fits my house key, room key, large house alarm and large car key comfortably. The zip is a bit stiff which could be troublesome if the pouch is filled to the brim. Overall, it was exactly what I was expecting and serves its purpose in such a chic manner.

Relieved
(I am 160cm and 48kgs - fairly petite, average shoulders, larger bust but thin arms. I ordered this sweater in Small and in 'Sawdust'). In the photos, 'Sawdust' sweater looks like it's kind of swamping the model's figure - I didn't want this look so considered getting the XS. I'm VERY relieved I listened to the other reviewers and went with a Small; it fits how I imagined the XS to fit in comparison! It falls just below my hips instead of dangling around my thighs. The arms are a little shorter than I'd like them to be but it's a minor detail that doesn't really bother me (the 'sleeves' are actually tiny cuffs, the rest of the 'sleeve' is part of the body). If I do say so myself, I look ridiculously chic in my sweater and I am happy with my purchase. This sweater is extremely light but surprisingly warm. I have already recommended this to a friend who has pounced at the sale price!
