Nice Dress - Awkward Fit
This is a very nice dress, but, unfortunately, I couldn't get it to look good on me. Perhaps it's because of my height (I'm 5'4''), but the fabric just gathered in all the wrong places and looked messy. I am 122 lbs and curvy, so depending on how I adjusted the ruching on this two-ply cotton dress, I appeared either bloated in the abdomen or bottom-heavy. This is why I think this item would look great on a taller, leggier person than one who is petite. So my complaint is about the fit of this dress on me; the quality and look of it, however, are great.

Nice Sandals, but Made in China
These sandals look good, but I received them yesterday and was disappointed with the following: Upon opening the box, I was hit with a strong chemical odor, the kind associated with cheaper leather goods. This prompted me to check the origin of this shoe, which turned out to be China. For a $235 sandal, this was quite the let down. I don't mind paying for quality, but I hate feeling duped by designers who market and price their products as high-end but seek out cheap means of production. A more accurate price for this sandal would be around $80, maybe $100. Like I said, they look good and while they don't look like a true designer shoe, they don't look cheap either, thanks to the clean design. I wear a 9 and they did feel a little big, especially on my right foot, which is a little smaller. I am returning this item mainly because of the fit issue, but I've decided against buying an 8.5 because of the discrepancy between price and quality (but if they go on sale, I might get them).

Sophisticated, Modern and Classic
These pants look great and they can be dressed up or down. The fabric is great and the fit is excellent. I am 5'4'', so I will need to have them hemmed a bit because, even with a high heel, they bunch up around the top of my foot, which takes away from the look and style. I have to do this with almost all pants, however, so this is meant as advice for those who are my height, not as a criticism of the product. In addition to the pants being great, they came packaged in a wonderful box, in a Derek Lam garment bag and hung on a hanger. I loved that.
