Cool Watch, Weird Clasp
After my last Michael Kors watch wore out after 2 years of hard use, I decided to order this watch to try something a bit new. The watch is really pretty-- a nice sleek design, much thinner than the classic Kors models, and a pretty minimalist face. It's sort of half way between a sporty, men's watch and a more sleek female one. I have to say though that the clasp is absolutely maddening! There is no marked clasp not the back and no, like, button you squeeze to easily "release" the watch and loosen it. To get it off, you have to stick your finger between your wrist and the exact right spot on the band and pull outward (hard) to get the thing off. I also think it looks a bit cheap without a clasp, sort of like the stretchy watches you'd get at the drugstore.

Amazing with one Caveat
I absolutely love these James Perse tees. The fabric has a beautiful texture, and they feel light weight and paper thin-- a great classy basic for summer. My one gripe with these shirts though (and I have many of them) is that they stain very very easily and for some reason the stains don't come off very well. After ruining three of them, I take them off whenever I'm cooking or feeding my toddler!

Wash Out
This was a lovely material but the color was very, very light. On a pale person like me, it was completely washing me out. I had to return it.

Not for Me
I was really excited to get this dress, but I found the cut sort of awkward-- it's VERY short and also a bit wide and blousey. On a very tall skinny person that might look cool, but on me, it just wasn't working.

Cool Top
This top looks lovely paired with a black pencil skirt and is already a great go-to piece in my work wardrobe. I'm not a huge fan of scuba material generally, but it is nice that it is never wrinkled and very easy to clean. The cut is really nice too. One thing I hadn't realized is that it's pretty structured with shoulder pads. Still, a great purchase.

Just Love It
I was skeptical this top would work for me. I'm a somewhat curvy girl, and couldn't imagine the arm cuts being flattering. I have to say though I how very wrong I was. This top looks amazing paired with a pencil skirt and is incredibly flattering. The high-low aspect of the peplum is also a nice touch. it was a bit stretchier than I realized-- this is not a still, structured top-- but I've loved it since it arrived and am not looking back!

Great Design, Decent Fabric
I love the print of these skirt, and it fits wonderfully. The fabric though is not what I had imagined. It's very stretchy and almost a touch spandexy or scuba-like, without a lining. It looks good, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're not prepared to show your curves!

Good, not Great.
This sweater, in my opinion, is just OK. It has a nice cut and hangs well, but the knit is quite loose, so it's not super warm. (It would almost be better for fall or spring than winter.) It also isn't a cozy, fuzzy sweater, and actually feels a little rough to the touch. I think next time I'd spend a bit more and get a cashmere waterfall cardigan. I do really like the hook, however, and the way the sweater can be worn two ways.

Amazing Staple
I love Theory for high-quality staples, and this sweater does not disappoint. Beautiful color, super soft, lovely cashmere-- it looks good with everything and is so comfortable, you'll want to wear it daily.

Didn't Last!
I loved the look of these jeans-- a nice faded gray color, and the perfect amount of distressing. However, after wearing them only five times-- and doing nothing more physical in them than eat brunch-- a huge hole developed in one of the knees. I definitely wouldn't buy them again.
