lovely summer dress
I was originally concerned this would run small since it is part of BCBG's runway line, but although the silk does not stretch, the draped cut makes it more forgiving than i would have imagined. I'm an 8-10/M-L in dresses but the M fit me well, so if between sizes maybe stick with the smaller one. There are no zippers, just a hook and button around the waist, and the dress was very comfortable and lightweight, ideal for summer. Unfortunately with my curvier figure, the dress wasn't as flattering as on the more statuesque model and material kind of overwhelmed me at the waistband, especially with the optional short ruffle peplum attached.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Polished for office or night out
The cut is more narrow through the shoulders, which gave it a nice shape. As a curvy size 8, the M fit perfectly. I can see though, that it might be more boxy on someone who is a smaller size, like a 6, but still a M. Nice fabric although the crepe could be a bit heavy for hot summer weather. I can picture wearing this at the office but also over jeans or formal shorts for a night out.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Pocket detail not as pictured
I was shocked to find that the pocket detail on the jeans I received was not the same as pictured. Instead it was the typical "h" of the brand, not the horizontal seam half-way across like the pictures. That was one of the selling points for me, so it was a bummer that the product had obviously changed even though it still had "Emannuelle" tags. The fit was TTS, with a little bit of stretch. Very long so I definitely had to cuff to make it look like the model and will be hemming before wearing. I love the updated slim boot-cut - the leg is quite slender, looks very rocker.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not as polished as pictured
I was impressed at how soft the fabric is, they are lined in jersey (T-shirt fabric) so I think that helps. I appreciated that they were very stretchy with the elastic waistband. Ultimately returned as somehow they just didn't look quite as polished as I had imagined and the inner jersey fabric was not a perfect color match for the lace.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Stretchy but small
These were quite stretchy, but despite this they seemed a little small. Maybe especially on account of the stretch, as i held them up the first time they looked super tiny. I think I'm between sizes 28 and 29, was hoping the 28 would fit fine especially with stretch, but sadly not. I returned, so no idea if they stretch out over time.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Versatile and comfortable
Very soft and comfortable, basically feels like a T-shirt. I love the cut of this and that it's fairly no-frills, with no little pocket. This makes it a really nice backdrop for a statement necklace of any length. Great for travel too as you can wear it more casually and also dress it up for evening.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Good match for bra
Good match for the bra with the similar trim. Nice smooth material, light enough for summer but provides good coverage.

Light support, great for summer
Light and airy, material is thin but provides coverage, seems ideal for summer heat. The sides of the bra pinched the first couple times I wore it and I initially thought I needed to go up a size, but eventually this stopped and the bra fits very comfortably now.

nice modern accessory
Handy accessory with a nice modern shape. My hair is thin, so I wish that this had a rubber backing to give better hold, but otherwise I love it and it is perfect for "half-up" styles.
