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.

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!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Returned this
Not for any issues with the quality or the look -- it's cute -- but because a flowy black I-might-be-pregnant top isn't worth $48. You could get the same shirt at Target for like $9.99. End of story. I don't know why it took me ordering it and trying it on to realize that.

Worth it
Lovely soft material, sexy cut. You could use fabric-tape for daytime and untape for evening. :) I'm between M and L in Lanston tops, and I went with the M because I didn't want it to gape open, which was the right choice for me. The cut is still quite low, so I wear it with a cute black bra just in case. As long as you keep an eye on the neckline, it's fine.

Perfect summer sandal
I bought my usual size, a 9, in these, and they're a little floppy on me (it would be helpful if the ankle strap would go one step tighter), but I wouldn't size down. Anyway, that's my only complaint -- otherwise these are perfect. I wanted something as easy and durable as flip-flops, but more stylish, and these are it. You really can't tell they're all-rubber unless you look closely. And they're the perfect shoe for rainy summer days -- doesn't matter if they get wet or muddy.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

unusual but understated
Initially I had some trouble threading these into my ears because of the slight curve at the end, but that happens to me with all earrings where the stud isn't completely straight. I haven't had the problems with them sliding out, like other reviewers mentioned. I love that they're unusual enough for people to notice but not garish at all, like some large hoops can be. You can wear these with jeans or with an evening gown. (Oh, also -- even though I'd read the review that mentioned the resemblance to fish, when they're in your ears, it's totally unnoticeable!) We'll see if the gold plate lasts, but for the price, I think these are great.

So useful
I wear these pretty much non-stop in the winter under giant cashmere sweaters, along with over-the-knee boots ... which I have to say is really the comfiest, warmest, snuggliest outfit you can wear in a Boston winter that still manages to be somewhat stylish. I'm on my third pair, because if you live in them like I do, after a season's wear, the back pockets will start to come off, the color fades a bit, etc. But I mean, they're $80 leggings that look like jeans (well, if you don't look too closely) ... it's worth buying some extra pairs.

Perfect!
Just adding my agreement to the general crowd approval for these booties. They give a ton of height without sacrificing a bit of stability or comfort. Perfect with skinnies, leggings, etc. For me, they were true to size, and I couldn't be happier with them. Maybe the only complaint would come from my downstairs neighbors, who are probably a little tired of hearing me clomp around in them!

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.
