Pretty Close to Perfect
The flare on these well-designed Vince cropped pants is subtle but gives them a nice classic silhouette and really shows off your ankles. I also like how the front panel of these mid-rise pants doesn't lay totally flat against your stomach, with enough of a gap to give you a relaxed, slouchy look when you dig deep into the side pockets, and a solid well-constructed 1" waistband to keep them from sliding off. Consider sizing down one size if you have narrow hips.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Theory Usually Does Better Than This
Loved the knee length, loved the fabric, just didn't like where it flared out. Because instead of holding tight through the thigh and breaking into the flare at the knee, it started the break mid-thigh. Producing a kind of frumpy silhouette. Wish I'd looked more closely at the photos, which clearly show the flare starting way too high. My bad.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

True Pencil Skirt That Hugs Your Legs
I'm very slender and have problems finding a pencil skirt that hugs my legs all the way down to the hem. Most seem to flare out or get loose mid-thigh. But this stretchy Current/Elliot denim pencil skirt stays close to your skin all the way down. I've washed it twice and it's just as stretchy as the first time I wore it. The size 24 hits a few inches above the knee on my 5'5" frame, so great for the summer if you're too old to wear shorts but don't feel like sweating it out in jeans or capris. Slight fading on the seat that I didn't like at first (and isn't obvious in the photos unless you look very closely) but now I really love. Also like the sweet little vent in the back. I take a size 24 in jeans, and the size 24 fit perfectly, so go with your regular jean size and you'll get a great fit with this summer staple.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Sweetly Whimsical Swimsuit Bottom
I saw this whimsical mid-rise swimsuit bottom from Marc Jacobs and knew it would give me the coverage I need to hide a vertical C-section scar on my tummy. It also has a sweet little ruffled hem that gives it a flirty look and doesn't require you to constantly worry about whether you forgot to 'groom' around your bikini line. And the faux exposed zipper in the back adds some nice edginess. The top (sold separately) is snug and really holds you in if you're large-breasted and gives you cleavage if you don't. Given my age, this will probably be my last two-piece swimsuit, but what a fun way to say good-bye to my bikini days.

Not for Women with Slim Hips
This is a high-quality Lepore skirt, but the poufiness around the hips (even in size 0!!) made me think this would be a better skirt for a woman with curvy hips. It would have been a winner if they'd cut the hips narrower and added more stretch to the fabric to accommodate women with wider hips. If you have a tomboy shape, stay away from this one. 4 stars for quality and for the interesting contour seaming, though.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Boat Neckline Was a Deal Breaker
This is NOT one of those flimsy cashmere dresses that looks like it will fall apart after one wearing. This dress has weight. It has substance. Sadly, it also has a high boat neckline that just doesn't work for me. Nice colors, though. And, as is typical for 360 Cashmere, solid seaming and high-quality construction. Waiting for them to make this dress with a scoop or v-neckline.
