Extreme boyfriend fit
These look great on the model but look different on me in the sense that they're much longer and wider in the hip and thighs than in the photo. I'm 5'7 with a thin build but not super skinny, and I found that these run large. I purchased my regular size: 26, these were very roomy throughout the leg, ran very long, and gaped at the waist. They felt very heavy and bulky. I was surprised because I find that J. Brand usually runs a little small. The higher you roll them the more bulky they become on the leg. I think that these are going back.

Versatile, soft, comfortable
I love this dress because it is the perfect layering piece. It fits snuggly and slightly 'body-con' (I am 5"7 and thin, I wear an XS in this dress). The material is super soft and super comfortable. The sleeves can be worn down or rolled up. Like another reviewer said, it is a perfect dress to wear with scarves, or other accessories like a vest. It did not work with tights for me because you could see where the tights marked on my stomach. I recommend this dress because it is versatile, you can dress it up or down and it is made of a comfortable fabric.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Too tight on the bottom but really nice
I'm going to echo other reviewers on this dress and say the same thing: this dress is too tight on the bottom. It's like they made two separate pieces, for two differently sized people, then attached them together to try to make one dress. I normally wear between a 0-2 in dresses. I am 5"7 and thin build but I do have a butt. The 2 in this dress was WAY too tight on the bottom. The 4 fit but was also still too tight and unflattering. For comparison - I do not own any size 4 items, so that you get an idea of how small this dress runs. When you size up, the top portion of the dress is obviously disproportional and large. It was such a gorgeous piece, with beautiful detailing on the front and back of the bodice, but it did not work for me. Returned. I think that this dress would work for you if you have a straight figure, very thing with a small bust and no hips / butt. It is really a beautiful piece in person. I wish it would have worked!

Size up a at LEAST a full size
The quality of these shoes is great. They are well made, with a slightly padded footbed, but I am on my second return because I can't get the sizing right! They are the farthest thing from TTS. I normally wear a 7.5 - 8 but I am a 9 (39) in these sandals. I have never been a 9 in any shoe that I own, designer or not. Now, with that said, they're truly stunning sandals in person that are perfect for a night out. I have not worn them out since I have returned them, so I cannot attest to their comfort level for periods of long wear. Alice & Olivia characteristically runs small in their clothing and shoes, but I sized up an entire size and a half for these. The sizing guide for them says they are "True European Sizing" but I have to disagree. They are worth the price if you can get your size right because they are well made, are a pretty silver, and elongate your legs.

Smaller than expected
The color on these was gorgeous in person - but they were too small and I didn't bother exchanging them for a different size. I would say size up one full size, definitely. I just reviewed a pair of Seven jeans and as compared to these, this pair was significantly more thin, and felt a lot less soft than the Seven's.

Love the style but back it went
I loved this necklace and the price point was unbeatable. When I received it, it did NOT initially disappoint. It is a great statement piece, but not well made. When I put it on the pendant immediately fell off from the necklace chain, so I returned it. I do love the look and feel of the necklace. The chain is not metal and feels light, like a coated plastic, but didn't take away from the bronze look of the necklace. The pendant is large and really pretty, and goes with everything since it's clear. Wish It would have worked out!

Perfect white jeans
This is the perfect pair of white jeans. I am loyal to Seven's and always wear a 26 in them (I am 5"7). These are not see-through (which is important for white pants/jeans), they've got a good amount of stretch in them, and they're soft. They fit like a glove from the first time they're put on. They are a bit long, like most Seven Jeans but they are durable and offer a wonderful fit. Make your butt look great, too :)

Wanted these to fit so badly!
I ordered these twice, and both times I returned them. I got them in the pewter color. I liked the color and I liked how these felt - they were soft and did not smell of any type of synthetic fabric (which can sometimes happen with cheaper faux leggings). I do think, however, these could use some improvement. For starters, they run very small. I ordered one size up from my regular size the first time that I ordered them and they did not zip. The second time I ordered them I got them two sizes bigger - this time they zipped and fit nicely in the butt area but the rest of the fitting was all off as a result of sizing up two sizes. The legs and thighs were loose. Something else that I didn't like was that the zipper was cheap looking and sits on the side, between a seam that pops up and is visible when the zipper is up. It's a shame that these didn't work out because they're very cute and on trend, but I just don't think they're made well.

Fit is all wrong - runs very big!
I was waiting for this dress to go on sale because I loved how it looked on the model. The size chart indicates that the model in the photo is wearing a size "S" but I find that highly unlikely! I found this dress to run very big! I would say to definitely order up a size and be prepared for the dress to fit loosely, as shown in the photo. I had the same problem as another reviewer: the fabric bunches a lot when you tie the dress at the waist. The fabric is heavy and thick. I bought this as a final sale item and would love to return it for a "P" but I doubt that will happen. I'm 5"7 and wear a size 2 in dresses and an XS in tops. The size "S" just does not fit - no matter how I try to style the dress. It is very voluminous through the chest/torso area. It is a beautiful dress with great detailing that I think would look stunning in the appropriate size.
