Size up
It's really the quality of the material that makes me recommend sizing up. I originally ordered S and had to return for M, and even with an M, the material is very thin (a little cheap, more like tights), without much stretch, so as soon as it pulls tight, it becomes a little sheer. I'm worried these won't stand up to multiple washings, but they are super cute with big sweaters and high boots, so I'll keep them anyway.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Oddly tailored
I wanted to love these, but I felt that the 11" rise was too low: to keep them from effectively giving me a wedgie, I had to wear them riding extremely low on my hips. Maybe sizing up to an M would have helped, but I'd read all the other reviews stating that these ran large. I'd STILL consider sizing up, but here's the final straw: these super-comfy lounge pants are dry-clean only! I should've noticed this before I ordered, so that's my fault, but I find DCO ridiculous for such a casual piece of clothing.

Beautiful!
This is one of the softest cashmere sweaters I own, and the lemon yellow color is amazing. It is a tiny bit boxy, so maybe size down. It also tends to slide off the shoulder as shown in the photo. I'm definitely getting the pink as well if it ever goes on sale.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Comfortable and sexy
The high rise combined with stretchy fabric is very flattering (especially from behind!). True lipstick red color and nice curved detail on the hem -- I've actually gotten multiple compliments from strangers on the hemming! I'm in between a 26 and 27 and was glad I went up to a 27 because of the high waist.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cut up my feet!
This sandal is so cute and versatile for the price. I wanted to love it, but on the 10 minute walk down the street to the grocery store, the strap that goes between the toes chafed so much that my foot started bleeding. The other reviewer doesn't seem to have had the same issue, though, so I can't say this is universal. Just be careful!

Comfortable, luxe
Took my usual size 9 in these and they fit perfectly. If you want slip-ons that still look chic and dress up an otherwise boring outfit, these are the perfect casual flat -- not to mention that they're insanely comfortable. Just don't wear them on wet days, or even damp ones!

Adorable!
I've had my eye on the Jeralyn Dress for a while now in all its different colors. When I saw the gorgeous pastel yellow with white lace trim I gave in and bought it, and I'm so glad I did, because it's gorgeous, delicate, and adorable. I got a S for myself -- 5'8", 135 lb, 36C. It fits perfectly, though I have yet to find the perfect bra for it. Fabric is soft and lovely. I plan to wear this to my rehearsal dinner this summer. Perfect dress for that kind of occasion (if it's a casual one). Sweet and charming.

Pleasantly surprised
I was really pleasantly surprised by this dress, considering the price. My main worries when I purchased it were that it would be too sheer, too short, and wouldn't fit my chest area (I'm 5'8" and 135, but I usually wear 36C or D). I ordered a M because I was worried about the skirt's length and the chest's roominess. Should've gone with the S, because the top is just INSANELY roomy, even for my 36D chest, with way too much extra fabric bagging out under the underarms. The skirt was quite baggy around the hips and butt as well. The dress is so cute overall (and really not that see-through), so I'm hoping the S will not be too short, as I did love the length of the M (just above the knee, on me).

Gorgeous
I love Alexis Bittar in general, but this ring might be my favorite piece of AB jewelry. I wear it almost every day. It sort of looks like something Cate Blanchett (or, let's be real, Orlando Bloom) would wear in Lord of the Rings. A++++++ for that reason alone. Elf chic.

Obsessed
I bought this dress over a year and a half ago but I still wear it any chance I can. The emerald color is to die for and the cut and stretch fabric are SO flattering. And surprisingly comfy! I've gotten so many compliments while wearing this, maybe more than for any other single item of clothing I own. One caveat: watch out for snags. This catches on other people's jewelry (or your own, I guess). It's happened to me multiple times!
