brilliant
Amazing shoes, but definitely size down at least half a size. I'm either a 39.5 (Giuseppe Zanotti) or 40 (Sergio Rossi). I got these in 40 and I definitely should have ordered 39.5 or even 39.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

nice but no stretch
I'm normally a 28 in most jeans. I got a 28 in these based on the reviews + shopbop size guide. They fit great around the butt (and are very flattering), but I could barely pull them on because of the thigh fit. Granted, I'm athletic, so I have a bit of muslces on my legs, but this has never been a problem before. I probably would have returned them if it wasn't for the fact that I accidentally ripped the tag of while unpacking them. However, I've been wearing them to stretch them a bit, and while I still have a bit to go to feel comfortable, they are very nice. The color is good and like I said, they are very flattering on the butt (that part of the jeans is true to size and is no problem, no love handle issues).

nice
I got this on sale and I'm glad - I think it's worth the half price, but i would never decide in favor of it at the original price. It is well made, and feels heavy (not uncomfortable). So far no problems with the clasp. What is definitely great about it (other than the combination of thise tiny thing chains with big metal beads) is that the you can actually play around with the length of it, depending on your neckline. You can make a choker out of it or as shown.

love them, but they run small
I'm a 39.5/40 (sergio rossi 40, zanotti 39.5, jimmy choo 39.5/40; cazabat 40, weitzman 8.5/9 in the OTK boots). I got these in 39.5 and a 40 would definitely be much better. I'm hoping to wear them in and then perhaps take them for professional stretching. The shoes themselves are reall great. Very high quality, and they actuallym anage to not look that bulky. I wanted a pair of biker boots for a while but was always put off by their clunky heaviness. While these are definitely sturdy, they actually don't make my foot look gynormous. The skull details is very nice, btu most people won't be able to tell that they are skulls until they really have a look up close - I actually like them even more for that subtle touch :D. Just so you're not surprised, the tips are actually pre-scratched, which is not shown that well on teh photos.

Fun but scratchy
This dress is very pretty. I thoguht it might have greenish undertones in it, but it really is just various shades of gray. It's a bit longer on me than on the model, but not by much (i'm 173 cm). I'm a 4/6, depending on the brand, so I went for the Medium in this. Fits pretty well, but I could have definitely taken S if I wanted it to be more fitted around the bust (34C). It looks really cute on, but despite the lining, the main material can be very scratch. It didn't bother me so much at the top, but the bottom/skirt-portion was driving me insane while sitting at dinner (despite wearing thick opaque tights).

Felt beautiful!!!
Celebrated my 1st anniversary of my 29th brithday in this dress and I felt STUNNING! I'm avery athleticly built 4/6, 5'8 tall, 34C with a defined bottom (thank you squats :P) - so despite not being stick thin - this dress gave mea fantastic shape and i did feel like Heidi Klum. (I wore the UK 10) The response I got confirmed how I felt. I would just recommend not sitting on anything other than a tall bar stool - thi is is a british dress and they do like them short over there! The dress is sheer where it should be and covering all that it should cover - i have plenty of photos with very strong flash and not a single "slip" - the dress really stays in place (unless, again, you sit on something low and then be prepared to keep your bag on your lap). The leather-like skirt feels very genuine but light. Fortuantely the top part will keep you cool, because you can get a bit warm around the skrit part.

love Belle flats
I am now a proud owner of two pairs of these flats and couldn't be happier. They are gorgeous and the design is so pretty. It is important to note that they are delicate, so if you intend on doing any walking in them outside of a shopping mall, you should get them resoled. But if that's your only concern than just get that sole done and get them. I've had compliments from women and men on them - when is the last time a man complimented a woman on a flat shoe?? I've never had this happen before :) As most other reviewers mention, you should think of getting half a size bigger than your usual size.

love
The blackberry color is gorgeous and very versatile. The inside is vey soft and they are easy to put on. They definitely feel like leather unlike many of the coated jeans. I'm very happy I got them!!! Just so you are aware though, as with slightly stiffer pants, there will be this crease in the back of your leg. The size on mine is absolutely perfect, anything larger would be loose and anything smaller would be too snug, but I still have that back crease around the thigh area on the back.

wow!
These shoes are amazing and amazingly comfortable. What you can't see on the photo that well is that they have a tiny platform, with built in cushioning, which makes these sky high heels almost like slippers. Honestly, this can be now classified as one of my most comfortable shoes ever and definitely a "go to" pair for a night out if I'm planning on dancing. Yes, they are that comfortable. The colors are also beautiful. In real life, the orange is less bright and rather more of a rusted brick. Right between the soal and the heel there's a "snake-skin" leatehr inset which makes them that much more unique. The color combination is gorgeous, shape beautiful and style oh so flattering. However, they do run a bit small. I wanted to get a 39.5 because that's most of my european shoes sizing, however they didn't have it, so I sized up. Now the shoe fits like a glove. If I sized down, to 39, my heel would have been sticking out in the back - not an attractive look!

very pretty dress
This is a very sweet dress. I ordered an M to be on the safe side, btu I could have proabbly done with an Sm as well, just more fitted around the rib cage, whereas now I have "space to manoeuvre" :). The material is thicker than your typical evening dress, but it's not so thick as tweed for example. it will look great with dark opaque tights or on it's own - I really think it's versatile enough to wear it in summer and winter. Looking forward to wearing it.
