Crunchy
I have been looking for a pair of wide-leg high waisted pants that would be flowy and look good with high heels and a tonal silk top. These were "crunchy" to the touch and crease very easily (e.g. across the top of the leg after sitting down/bending) since there is a high portion of cotton. They're very thick and there's almost no movement at all when you walk. I'd liken the texture to thin, stiff jeans. The look comes off very casual and not what I envisioned at all. They are true to size.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Comfortable and affordable
Bought this on sale at another site but want to leave a review here. Per other reviewers' suggestions, I went down a size. I am either a 25/26 in jeans normally and I ordered a 25. Upon arrival, I found I could've gone done to a 24 to have it fit a bit more snug but the 25 is still ok. Good value for money and the cut is flattering, material stretchy but thick.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Work-appropriate
I found the skirt true to size (size 26 jean, bought size 2 skirt) and if you plan to wear the skirt to work, you're better off having it slightly loose so that it doesn't look too skin-tight like the models wearing size 0. I did not experience any awkwardness with the zipper and found it fit perfectly over the curve of my butt. There was no "double butt" as suggested by others. I'm 5'5" and the length is a little over my knees and hits at a flattering/classy point which brings a bit of conservatism to the fitted skirt - again, good for work environment. I'm going to buy another one!

Good basic
Been looking for a basic tank that I can wear a bra (not strapless) with and looks good alone or under a blazer. I ordered this in black and white. The black is a good staple piece and has held up well in regular machine wash with no special care. The white is, however, see-through and thus, returned. The material is not very thick, so it is more obvious with the white than black.

Classy and clean
I've been looking for a simple black cami with a good weight to the silk and which doesn't look like cheap lingerie. This is it. The cut-out detail along the neckline is a nice little detail and it doesn't show up when wearing a strapless bra. The fit is quite loose and I think the model would have looked better in an XS. Contemplating ordering the nude also to match with neutrals and white.

Expensive for the quality
For almost USD300, I'd have expected a heavier silk but it looked a little like a pyjama top. It is quite flowy and green... and that's about it. There's nothing special about the top to justify the price tag. It is a billow-y top, and I think you can order your regular or one size smaller, if you're in between sizes.

For small shoulders
I have broad shoulders, size 0-2/XS, and ordered the 2. The torso area was a little large on me but the shoulders felt small. Best for people with normal/narrow shoulders. The lace looked nice on the model and I thought I might be able to wear this with a pencil skirt to work. However, you can see nude bra straps through the fine lace and the lace looks a little like cheap lingerie. Not really impressed, so, returned.

Amazing quality
The dress feels well made - no pulls in the silk, delicate embroidery. I'm between size 0-2 and I ordered the 2, which was too big. The skirt was baggy and the embroidery around the waist sat too low. I'd recommend ordering a size down.

Comfy, boyfriend-y
Order these jeans one size down from your usual. I'm between a 25/26 (more often a 26) and found the 25 to be just right. They're soft, comfy and have the right amount of distressing to look cool. Been looking for a boyfriend jean that doesn't make me look too frumpy and where the material isn't stiff/thick cotton. I wear these rolled at the cuff a little and I love them!

Look like pyjamas
Not evident in the model's pic, but the shorts have a polyester-y sheen to them making them look like "silk" pyjama shorts. For $60, the quality is fairly poor - lace looks cheaper in person and the elastic inside the waistband flips and twists around requiring constant adjustment. I'm returning these.
