Unique but Subtle
I bought this dress as a transition piece between work and special occasions. It is my first DVF so I wasn't sure how it would fit. I'm 5'1 and about 100 pounds and it seems to be slightly big on the top with the draping, but after getting used to it I think that's just the way it's supposed to fit (I ordered a 0). I ended up having to pin it so it wouldn't be too open on the top for work. The rest of the dress fits perfectly and hits right above the knee as shown on the model. The material is absolutely beautiful and nice and thick for the winter (it's definitely a seasonal item). It is NOT overly shiny, a lot of people voiced this concern when I was ordering it, but in person it is subtle, not metallic looking and it's incredibly classy. The satin bow is beautiful too. At first I was going to return the dress but after sleeping on it I've decided to keep it. It's a head turner and I'm proud to start off my DVF collection with this one!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great Boots for Slimmer Legs/Petites
I'm about 5'1 and weigh 100 pounds with a petite but still athletic physique and these boots fit around my calves just well enough that they are not tight but still not too loose (which is very hard for me to find in a boot). The suede is very good quality and the color is a pure black, much more vibrant than I have noticed from a lot of other boots. Like other people I also agree that the ability to control the slouchiness is great, for my height I can wear them just above the knee but I can also scrunch them down. They are a tad tricky to walk around in at first but you definitely get the hang of it. I agree the fit is a little different than most boots but I did not find it as awkward at all as another reviewer. The size was also perfect, I have never been higher than a size 7 and I am glad I stuck with my size. The only downside is the side profile of these boots, its a little weird looking but not enough for me to care b/c everything else about them is awesome!
