Favorite versatile black pants!
These pants are incredibly flattering and look as good with flats as they do with heels. The fabric is incredibly comfortable and thick enough for a little compression while looking sleek and slimming rather than painted on. Aside from fit, I love these because they repel dog hair, lint, etc - a huge convenience for me. These are professional enough to wear in my conservative workplace but cool enough to look edgy with boots and a cool tee. Sizing is TTS to slightly generous - I'm 5'4, 135lb, 39.5" hip and 31" waist and the size 6 is perfect and comfortable (some of my other 6s are feeling tight with my lingering post-holiday weight gain...). Slightly long for me of course, but the fabric is stiff enough that I can fold the hems under and they stay nice and stiff. An awesome buy at this sale price!! Having tried them on now, I would have totally bought them at full price - they are that flattering.

Beautiful top
I love Raquel Allegra's silk tops, and this one is no exception. I rarely buy sheer things that I need to wear a cami under, but this one is beautiful, pattern placement is great for coverage as the other reviewer noted. It is so versatile too - can be office appropriate, weekend cool, or dinner-date-pretty. It flows beautifully on the body and is light as air. I tuck it in and blouson a bit at work, or leave it flowy - looks great either way and I've already gotten complements. Plus it's hand washable! I hate drycleaning so that's a plus for me. I find Raquel Allegra's sizing to be pretty fluid, and have worn 1, 2 and 3 in her tops and dresses (I'm normally a 6, with linebacker broad shoulders so I often go up to an 8 in tops/jackets). The 2 here is perfect but I would have bought a 1 or 3 also if the 2 wasn't available. Definitely a steal on sale!

LOVE! Sophisticated flattering flare
Love these jeans - definitely a mid-rise, not a high rise style. The details are great, like the piping on the pockets and the shape of the back pockets. The 27 fit me great (except length of course) - I'm 5'4, 126 lb, about 27-28" waist and 37" hips. These are chic enough to wear to work with a blazer in an office where jeans aren't allowed. I also got the dark blue rinse with the yellow piping but I preferred the black on black - distinctive but subtle. Great buy, especially on sale.

Flattering, cool 1970s silhouette!
I find these pants fairly true to size - I'm about a 27/28 in jeans, waist 28, hips 37, and I found the 6 to fit perfectly. The 6 seemed comparable to Rachel Zoe's denim hutton pant in a size 27 (so perhaps if in between sizes, best to size up). I got them specifically because of the great 1970s silhouette: the higher waist, great flare and drapey swing of the fabric - and I was not disappointed, especially at the sale price. The fabric seems like a good year round weight (here in CA) and has enough weight that it drapes nicely. Of course they are ten miles long, but at 5'4 I need to get everything hemmed, even with 5" heels - the great thing about these is that even with the bottom 6" (at least) cut off, the flare was still large enough to cover my shoe as shown in the model pic. I'd get these in another color if they had my size.

Flattering, classy, versatile
This is one top I would NEVER have bought online just seeing it from photos. However, I tried it on in a store because it just looked so appealing on the hanger - a little old world, maybe a little bohemian, but in a very modern, California cool cut. When I tried it one I was shocked at how flattering it was. I normally shy away from lace because I don't want to seem to prissy or fussy - especially because I work in a corporate environment. However, this top would work just as well under a blazer as it does over a pair of faded jeans. I think it is incredibly versatile and really flattering. If wearing it for work, I would probably wear a camisole underneath. However, for casual wear or with a cardi over top, I think you could get away with a nude bra. For reference, I'm 5'4, 126lb, 36" bust - but huge linebacker football shoulders - and took a size 2. I usually find it hard to pay full retail for a top, but I couldn't stop trying this one and came home with me to stay.
