I read the other reviews to choose size
The blouse is pretty and classic. It's a great addition for work wardrobe and just to jazz up/formalize other daytime combinations. I style it with the neck open and a big neclace, but it looks nice buttoned up too- very different looks. I ordered the size small when I would ordinarily order the medium as the other reviewers talked about how large the item was, overall. I am glad I did, the small fits perfectly. So consider ordering a size down unless you are very large busomed, etc. Other reviewers complained about the quality of the silk- it's fine! I think some of the other reviewers may have been expecting a satin-finish silk charmeuse or chiffon. This is more of a silk crepe de chine.

has me feeling the need to drop 5 lbs
So, this really is a great dress by DVF, however: when I tried it on, I was sad. I got the dress in my size and while it fits like a glove and the shape is good, it HUGS all the little bulges anywhere on your body- tummy or hips- and while the lace is gorgeous and I love that it is lined with some really smooth jersey for comfort (it's not itchy in the least!)-- I, will, sadly, have to lose a few lbs or tone those abs before I can let myself wear this because it will make me too self-conscious as it is. Enjoying the color though, good for a summer tan :).

Love these!
I can already tell that I will be wearing these shoes for years to come. They are the perfect shape wedge bootie, the perfect height for my long winter trousers, and so comfortable! The rubber sole really seals the deal here in being practical without being too casual. Expensive, but Perfect!

Love the color, the clasp is tricky
Loving these as I've been wanting an interesting pair of rose-gold hoops, however the clasp is hard to hook! I now have a practiced hand at getting these earrings clasped so I can do it without looking in the mirror, but when I first got them they were really hard to get hooked!

Great Work Earrings
Really enjoying these. They're really versatile for work/evening as they are oversized knots. The colors play well with grays and warmer coppery hues and are corporate-friendly without being boring.
