Did not work for my body type
I have another pair of Rag & Bone high rise skinnies (Clean wash) that fit amazingly well, so I was really looking forward to having a black pair as well. Unfortunately, the material seems to behave quite differently despite their identical compositions. I have a small waist but large butt/thighs, and I couldn't pull these all the way up my leg. Those with average thighs should not have any issues. I took a size 25 (based on reviews), even though my typical denim size is 26, and the waist area was perfect.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Nice casual dress
I was a bit concerned after reading the previous 2 reviews, but it turns out that this dress fits me fairly well, and the amount of material in the skirt is not excessive or overwhelming on my frame. I am 5'2", and curvy/hourglass. The length is just perfect! The front hem is just above the knee on me, and I love the shirttail cut. I took a size 1, and am typically a Small in most items. The waist does look better belted, so I am wearing this with a thin tan leather belt most of the time, but it's not shapeless without a belt either. The skirt portion is double-layered, but the Charcoal colour is not sheer at all. It's a very versatile dress. I definitely need to dock a star for the price though. Even with the Friends & Family discount, I thought it was outlandishly expensive for a crinkly cotton dress. However, it does fill a hole in my wardrobe, so I will keep it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Super comfortable!
I love the fabric composition of the Photo Ready jeans. They have quite a bit of stretch, but won't lose their shape as the day goes on like some other jeans I've tried. Wonderful fabric for curvy/hourglass figures like mine, where you need the waist to fit snugly but require more room in the thighs and backside. The Impression wash is lovely. It falls somewhere between a blue and a black! I found that these are TTS (took a 26 like the vast majority of my jeans), but the waist seems a touch higher than my other 811s.

Stunner of a bracelet
The Mini Titan is such a well-made bracelet, and an incredibly versatile/stackable style! I love that the hinge allows for easy removal, and a smaller bracelet circumference. The silver plating is ultra shiny and beautiful. I have 15cm wrists, and this size actually works pretty well on me! I purchased the rose gold version as well, and love them both.

The Mini Titan is such a well-made bracelet, and an incredibly versatile/stackable style! I love that the hinge allows for easy removal, and a smaller bracelet circumference. The rose gold plating is super shiny, and the perfect shade of rose (not artificially pink like some items I've seen) -- the shade matches my 18k rose gold wedding set. I have 15cm wrists, and this size actually works pretty well on me! I purchased the silver version as well, and love them both.

Awesome, awesome boots
You will not believe how comfortable these boots are!!! The heel is just perfect for adding a little bit of height, while maintaining the same level of comfort as flats (or actually doing better)! Flawless quality, as I've come to expect from Rag & Bone shoes. The Durhams are a simple style that will go with anything, with that little touch of detail to make them not boring. I am a size 6.5, but purchased the 37. I should have stuck with the 36.5. These fit fine in width, but are a bit long for my feet.

Poor shape retention
These jeans fit well upon first putting them on, but over the course of the day, they bagged out badly in "bending" areas like the knees and butt. Wonderfully soft material, but it has very poor shape retention. I wish I had the foresight to wear these around the house for a while first before removing the tags.

Stiff
The coating on these jeans is super thick, gorgeous, and leather-like. As a result, unfortunately, there is pretty much no give in the fabric, and I could not even put these jeans on in my usual JBrand size 26. Too bad!
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Super comfortable!
SO incredibly soft, with quite a lot of stretch. The material is quite thin, but that also adds to the comfort factor -- I just won't be wearing these in winter! A perfect TTS size 26. I have larger thighs, and the stretch accommodates them perfectly!

A great "staple" pair of skinnies
The stretch in these is perfect. I have a small waist but large thighs, and these fit wonderfully due to the stretch. At the same time, it's not the type of stretch that would bag out over the course of the day either! The wash is a nice, medium blue, which does lean to the casual side of things. All in all, a great basic.
