The Ideal Leather Jacket
I was looking for a leather jacket, under $1000.00 that was stylish and comfortable. That proved to be a difficult task until I came across Mackage's Veruca leather jacket. The interior shearling vest easily removes and only serves to enhance the look of the leather jacket. I look forward to wearing the jacket from fall straight into winter (provided there are no snowstorms). As for sizing, the medium (I'm 5'4, small chest, broad shoulders) was perfect. I prefer things slightly oversized.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Classic F/W Blazer
I was hesitant about purchasing this blazer because of the price. However, the construction was worth every penny. The blazer was on the heavier side, so it could definitely be worn in place of a jacket during the cooler months or layered in winter. If you're big on blazers, as I am, then I strongly encourage you to invest in the piece. Keep in mind: the blazer ran small. I am normally a solid size 6 in Helmut Lang and Theory blazers. In Smythe, I am a size 8.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Purchased immediately after 1st Nocturne
I can't wait for shopbop to carry more from Nocturne. After I purchased my first necklace, I then purchased this one. We're talking within the span of a week or two. The prices are unbeatable and you'll receive the same quality and style as a competing brand. I am constantly asked about my Nocturne necklaces, from both sexes.

The Perfect Work T-Shirt.
I needed something to wear underneath my Theory suits for work that wasn't uber-professional and this t-shirt is it! And even with the leather-like short sleeves, it's still comfortable underneath my suit jacket. I purchased two and would love additional colors.

The Essential T-Shirt.
I went on shopbop.com specifically for this t-shirt. I am a t-shirt-aholic. I buy t-shirts constantly. I never need a reason and I can never have enough. However, KAIN's t-shirts in particular just sit amazingly well. I can dress them up with a blazer, skirts and heels, or wear them casually with denim shorts and sneakers. What makes KAIN's t-shirts so incredible: the texture. I bought one in each color and plan on wearing them until they're threadbare (and beyond). One thing: if you're going to spend $84 on a t-shirt, then don't put it in the washing machine. Some things are worth the extra care.

My Summer 2013 Sneaker
I absolutely love the look of these sneakers! What a refreshing change of pace from the common Converse low top. They are incredibly comfortable and so chic; I've worn them with a variety of looks and the sneaker has yet to fail me. My only gripe is that I purchased an 8.5, as I was instructed to do since I'm normally a 9. Well, I really should have purchased an 8 (yes, an 8) as the sneaker is still too big for me! And what's worse, I was caught in the rain, so the canvas stretched out! Now, I have to tie the laces tightly in order for the sneaker to fit properly. Boo. Still, I love them and will definitely purchase another pair, probably annually, indefinitely.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Exactly as pictured
I've always wanted something opulent for around the neck but just couldn't imagine ponying up Dannijo money. Thankfully, Nocturne offers up a similar aesthetic at wallet-friendly prices. I can't wait to wear it all summer with t-shirts and underneath silk blouses. My only concern is how quickly the metal is going to turn; something that is inevitable with plated metals. In the meantime, I'll be sure to enjoy it as much as possible!

Love a Ronny Kobo on SALE!
I recently scored this little number and I absolutely love it. True, you have to make sure that you're absolutely fit for this number (or own Spanx) as it will disclose every bump. I definitely think it is worth the buy, considering that most dresses from the designer retail for twice the price! Specifics: The material is very lightweight so despite the long sleeves, I might consider giving her a go during the cooler summer nights. And as for the fit, I would definitely say true to size. I am very happy with my purchase. If you're familiar with Torn dresses, then you expect the body hugging fit and eye-catching prints.

I can't believe these aren't sold out!
No seriously, I can't believe there are this many sizes still available. I just received these jeans this morning and am thrilled with my purchase. No regrets. They are perfect for fall. Everyone knows that flare denim has been trending for ages now, with no signs of stop. Me personally, I could care less about that but I do love that it affords me amazing options to select from and cherish in my wardrobe for years to come. Now back to the jeans: they're made of a surprisingly light-weight denim, with just the right amount of stretch that leads me to believe that they will hold their shape and comfort level after a few wears. As other comments have pointed out, they are quite long. I'm 5'4/5'5 and tried them with some 4in wedges and will still need to hem them at least half an inch. The front of the waist is a little higher than a low waist jean but I would by no means call these high waist denim. Also, they are true to size. I ordered a 27 and they fit perfectly. These are a must buy.

Dress of my DREAMS
I just received this dress today in blush and I am very pleased. I'm 5'4 and typically a size 6 but the medium (size 3) in this dress was too large. I ordered the small (size 2) and it fits perfectly. Make no the mistake, the dress is short and I am build with more than the model -- I will say that the dress is comfortably short. My only criticisms of the dress are pilling and the lower than I thought front. I received this dress brand new and there was already some pilling on the side. I'm sure that has something to do with the mixture of synthetics; I'll be sure to take care allowing the dress to rub up against things. Second, the lower than I thought front. I'm a 34A and will need to select a very low bra in order to wear one with this dress. I didn't really want to go bra shopping for for this dress, a new bra is definitely worth it. My advice: if you've spent the last several weeks obsessing over this dress like I have, then I highly suggest you get it.
