Stubborn zipper
I bought this dress in the creme, size M. Being an Australia size 10 and 5'2" I found that this dress was slightly too loose around the torso and forearm - but not to an extent that it looks out of proportion. The bodice was less sheer than it appeared in the photos which I am happy about. However, my main concern with this dress is that the zipper on the left hand side is very difficult to do up as it gets caught where the bodice and skirt of the dress join together. I am sure this is due to the delicate nature of the materials used to create the garment, but even with an extra set of hands helping I cannot easily get into this dress. Despite this being a potential wardrobe staple for hot Australian summers with the flattering cut and light materials used, the zipper issue may be enough for me to consider returning this dress.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Cosy sweater
This is a great staple sweater for autumn/ winter - not too heavy, but good for layering and casual wear. I'm 5'2" and an AU size 10 so I ordered the medium which turned out to be quite roomy, which I like. Could have gone down to a small for a better fit across the shoulders, but happy to have this a bit larger for a cosy fit.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

A great purchase
I am a big fan of Marc by Marc Jacobs' mouse ballet flats. These are a cute update on the elasticised style, but are perhaps a half size larger due to the flexible nature of heel. Would recommend going down a half size in any of the mouse flats that don't have an elasticised heel. I love these and know I will get as much wear out of them as my other mouse flats.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
