A Wearable Dress
I'm 5'3", 120 lbs and curvy from the waist down. I ordered the size 2 and it was too large. Too bad there wasn't a size 0 in stock! My fiance didn't love the "poofy-ness" of the bottom of the dress. It really did make my rear look much wider than it should, and not in a flattering way since the fit-and-flare returned to "fit" at the bottom of the dress. However, the lines on the torso are really cool and modern, and I love the neckline. It's clean cut, and I think it'll be a great spring work dress. Great price, too. Most importantly, it's in just the best color ever. Such a calming, clear aqua blue that isn't too bright. The tone is perfect. I was worried about the fabric not being good quality and ended up googling for an hour about the fabric developing pills. I figure if I dry clean the dress only, and take good care of it, maybe it will last longer without pills. It's also just such a good price that I thought it was worth the risk.

Suitable Skinny Belt
Cute, slim belt. It fits around my true waist (I can wear it with dresses), and also on my hips (I can wear it with pants/shorts). I got the gold XS (5'3" 120 lbs, curvy from the waist down), and it's perfect. The gold goes well with everything, and the price is awesome. The only drawback is that the inside of the belt is black. It gives the belt a darker color on the outside, and I'd prefer it to be lighter. Also, why make the inside of the belt solid black if it's not reversible? I know Club Monaco makes some reversible belts, and it would have been nice to have that feature on this belt.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Saturday Shoes
These shoes are great. Finally a flat that fits my feet comfortably! I am a size 7.5M, and I originally ordered the 38 because sizing up usually works better for me. They slipped off when I walked just a little bit, and were too roomy. The size 37 is perfect. I recommend sizing down if you are a half size. I bought the twine colored ones, and though the color is a little dull & I keep buying neutral shoes for some reason, they look SO cute with any casual outfit. I love them best with skinny jeans, rolled up once, and a colorful tee w/ a tote bag. They would excel at a farmer's market. I can wear them all day and feel casual but still put together, and not sloppy. I love the edgy craftsmanship with the rubber sole, and how they're not perfectly made--it gives it a self-aware quality that makes each pair look unique.

Sexy but a little snug
These are the sexiest shoes I've ever tried on. My fiance had a hard time breathing when I was trying them on. They are beautiful. I bought them in the Platino color, and it is so pretty and goes with everything. They're also super comfortable, and I thought I could wear them for a few hours without hurting. The soft leather is beautiful (especially the sole), and the craftsmanship is superb. They're really fine, well-made shoes. I only returned them because they were a little snug on the sides of my feet. I'm usually a true 7.5 M, but lately every shoe I try on has been too big, so I ordered a size 7. They were too narrow for my feet, but fit length-wise. I'm hesitant to order a 7.5 because they may be too long for my feet. Also, they are such a sexy look that I'm not sure where all I will be able to wear these shoes! I bought them for my engagement party. I may go for a more versatile shoe.

Optimal Twirl Capability
I ordered a size 2 (I'm 5'3", 120 lbs, curvy from the waist down) and it was a little baggy. The strap on the size 2 dress also just ripped as I was gently taking off the dress after trying it on. There is a tag on the dress warning about the delicate fabric--which worries me a little bit, but I love knowing it was made with quality fabric. So I returned the size 2 & ordered a size 1. It's snug up top but I love the fit. The top of the dress fits like dresses fit Marilyn and Grace in movies. It makes your torso look solid like a Barbie's torso. The high-low effect of the dress is appealing. It's not flattering to my knees by all means, but the best part of the dress is that it's optimal for TWIRLING! I bought it for my bachelorette party in New Orleans. It's going to be perfect for dancing to live music w/ my girls. The cut out in the back is well placed. I love the woven waistband & straps. The material is light, airy and breathable. Perfect girly spring-to-summer dress
