Free Flowing and Comfortable
I bought this dress in the emerald green colour and it looks great (love the colour). I like the that it is a satiny kind of fabric with a slight sheen, which dresses it up a little. I also like that it sits a little higher in the front than in the back. It looks good with flats and heels. I am 5'51/2" tall and it was not too long. A strapless bra is completely hidden underneath it. When travelling, it will get really wrinkled in a suitcase, but if you are staying in a humid area, the wrinkles fall right out if you hang it up (this was a great dress to wear in the humidity of Bali :).

Comfort Done Fashionably
I have been looking at the colour block blazers and I loved the look, style, and price of the Pencey Standard one. I received it for Christmas and it fits like a dream. I asked for a medium. The arms are snug enough that I wouldn't try to fit anything bulky under it (t-shirts and tanks are great, though). I really like that it can be dressed up or dressed down (great with dress pants or with jeans). I love the colours (you can wear it with so much) and the jersey fabric construction, it's really comfortable. My shoulder pieces had no puckering as a previous reviewer described; it was well made and I like that it's body skimming - it creates a flattering sillouette. Thumbs up!

Edgy and Comfortable
I had been watching a number of moto boots for a while and the positive reviews made me decide to take the plunge and purchase the black Jeffrey Campbell boots. They are as comfortable as slippers and add an edgy flavour to my wardrobe. The construction, hardware and straps are very well made and the style allows for ease when putting them on or taking them off. They fit very true to size, so I wear thin socks with them (I ordered an 8, but I might have more sock room if I'd gone with the 8.5). I'm so glad I opted for this style; in fact, I have an eye on the brown ones...

Soft and Comfortable
I bought this dress in the light gray colour (it's almost a mauve gray). I absolutely love this dress. I'm 5'51/2" and it was the perfect length, JUST above skimming the ground. I agree that the elastic is a bit loose and a belt looks really great with it. The skirt portion is double layered so it's not see through and it feels like the most comfortable t-shirt ever made. The fact that the dress has a waist means it's casual and comfortable, but it's flattering and has some shape to it. I wore this dress on a really long plane ride and it was the perfect outfit.

Comfy and Stylish
I bought this dress in a size small because of what other reviewers said (I'm normally a medium, I'm 5'5" and 133 lbs.). The small fit perfectly! I loved the cut; it was incredibly comfortable and looked great in flats or casual heels. I liked having the pockets and they didn't stick out on me (I could see them getting a bit gapey if you jammed your hands in them all the time). I took this dress away with me on vacation and wore it all the time. Great purchase!

Soft but Gigantic
This sweater has nice lines and it's really soft; however, I ordered a medium and it was gigantic on me. I felt I was swimming in it. It fit in the arm length, but it was really, really wide. Maybe I need to decide I'm a small by American standards (5'6", 135 lbs.) because this is the third top I've felt was too large (I'm almost always a medium, 6 or 8 in Canada). I would suggest purchasing this one size smaller (at least) than what you normally wear.

A Bit Disappointing
I really like the colour blocking sequence of this sweater and how the black is on the top (looks great with black pants/slimming in the arms). I bought the black/white/coral variety. I also love the curvature of the line along the bustline and on the reverse. Where this sweater went wrong for me was in the size. It is a bit short (sits just at my waistline) and it's quite loose. I am 5'5 and 135 lbs and would usually go with a medium; however it was really wide through the waist. I wish I had returned for a small, but I did end up keeping it. If it fit like it does on the model, I would be a lot happier with it.

Cute but Roomy
This tank is cute, in that it has a classic shape with the addition of lace insets, which dress it up and add a more unique flair. I wanted to love this top, but I was disappointed by the size. I usually go with a medium (I'm 5'5 and 135 lbs) but it was quite roomy (too low under my arms). I got this on final sale, so I can't return it, but I've made it work with a couple of outfits. Overall, I'd say it's a great top, but order a size smaller.

Stylish Boots
I watched this item for quite a while and took advantage of when they went on sale. I really love the look of the embossed leather and the brass hardware. The hidden platform results in a sky high boot with the feel of a three inch heel which is fabulous. I get tons of compliments on these boots (mostly due to the heel height and the beautiful leather). I ordered an 8.5 even though I am an 8 usually; they fit like a glove (I wear them with thin socks). The only thing negative I would say about these boots is that they come up high (a plus when wanting the tops not to show when sitting). When driving, it hurts my ankle a bit, but I'm hoping that will go away with wear. I think I rotate my ankle which pulls the zippers down a little; again, I think this is a result of how high on the ankle they come.
