Gorgeous!
I have a very petite frame (round 5'3", 90lbs) and ordered this top in a size XS, in black as well as camel. I already own another Julie Top from a season ago, which still holds its shape and I do wear it a lot!: I love the great snug fit with exactly the right length for me (ends below the hip bone, but can also be "worn shorter" by simply "crumpling up" a bit), as well as the stretchy and very soft fabric, which provides just the right amount of warmth - either for layering in winter or worn alone in warmer weather. I am also very picky regarding itchy fabrics, but found this top to be very soft and comfortable to the skin. Only problem for me this time was the color: The very light (!) camel tone did not at all compliment my pretty fair skin tone, made me look even paler, and was too sheer for my taste. That's why I finally decided to return this one, but am really thinking about buying the black one a second time! That means: Highly recommended, especially for this price!

Perfect!
I already own COH's Rocket Leatherette in two different colors and really love their fabulous fit and comfort, as well as the outstanding coating which really looks leather-like and not cheap at all. When I saw the great "Rubia" color, I decided to also go for this one, although the Racer is a pretty different cut, with a low waist. As with my Rocket Leatherettes, I ordered a size 24 - and have not been disappointed at all!: The Racer in Rubia also fits perfectly fitted, offers the same comfort (nearly as comfortable as a "real" legging!), and the coating is of the same great quality. I also love the (real!) low waist of these, as it is even a little bit more sexy on my petite frame (5'3", 90lbs) than Rocket's (again real!) high waist. Just be aware that the rear pockets of the Racer sit much lower than those of the Rocket Leatherette - I love both ways, but you should be aware of this, as such low-sitting rear pockets are not for everyone. To sum it up: Highly recommended, go for it!

Not exactly what I was looking for
As I already own the fabulous COH Rocket Leatherette in two colors, as well as the Coated Racer in Rubia, I was really happy to find the lovely-fitting Racer style in this great "Black Slash" color. Unfortunately, however, this one does not fit at all like the coated version, even though I ordered the same size 24 :( The waist of the Black Slash version was pretty much ok, although it showed some strange bulking in the crotch area; furthermore, from knees downwards, it was much too wide for my taste. I should have known from the pictures though, because when looking closely, you may observe that it is not THAT skinny.. I finally returned it, as it was not what I was looking for - may work for taller/less petite-framed figures though, as the wash is really beautiful!

Color does not suit
This jacket is of such great quality: Very warm and ultra-soft to the skin, without looking bulky at all! The fit is also as expected: I have a really petite frame (5'3", 90lbs), but this jacket in size XS is nicely fitted, not bulky at all, still allowing some layering. Only problem for me really was the color: It is pretty lovely in itself, but on me it looked too much like a forest ranger - in a negative, sort of outdated way :( Such a pity, because, apart from the color, it had been exactly what I was looking for. Would highly recommend to everyone who can cope with this color complexion- and outfit-wise!

Great, but not exactly as expected
I really wanted to love this pair of jeans, as the fabric is very comfortable, super stretchy and soft, the coating is great (does not look cheap, but really leather-like!), and I also loved the Moto details which are fabulous. However, the fit for me was a little bit awkward: I ordered my usual size 23 in these, and the fit was TTS, snug and tight all-over, without being uncomfortable; however, when moving around, it bunched in the crotch and knee area, so that I constantly felt like having to pull and drag here and there :( Really a pity, because otherwise, this is a great pair of leather-like Moto jeans!

Love the fit and fabric, not the color
I have a very petite frame (round 5'3", 90lbs) and ordered this top in a size XS. Loved the great and snug fit as well as the stretchy and very soft fabric, which provides just the right amount of warmth - either for layering in winter or worn alone in warmer weather. I am also very picky regarding itchy fabrics, but found this top to be very soft and comfortable to the skin. Only problem for me is the color: The "camel" part of it, although very nicely combined with the black part, did not really suit my pretty fair skin, and made me look a little bit pale overall. That's why I finally decided to return this one, but am planning to try the black-white combo.

Pretty snug, but absolutely gorgeous!
I have a very petite frame (round 5'3", 90lbs) and am usually a size 23 or 24 in (my favourite!) Rag & Bone jeans. Ordered these in a 23, and the fit is REALLY snug all-over, especially in the knee area, due to the leather seams. Furthermore, the fabric is stretchy, but not as soft as with other R&B pairs: These are thicker and more "real denim"-like. However, all in all, these are absolutely gorgeous!: The wash is SO special (kind of a "blackened" blue with just the right amount of fading and distressing; and a very subtle, nearly leather-like sheen), and the leather seams give them a little edge, while not being "overdone" at all. Highly recommended!

Great as usual with R&B, but too thin..
I have a very petite frame (round 5'3", 90lbs) and am usually a size 23 or 24 in jeans. Ordered these in a 23, and the fit was ok, but a little bit strange: Pretty snug in the waist, but not tight enough in the knee area, so it tended to bulk a little when moving around. Furthermore, the fabric is very thin, not denim-like at all, felt more like thin Chinos. Because of beforementioned reasons, I decided to return them, although the color is absolutely gorgeous and great for fall.

Not as great as expected..
I am usually between a size 23 and 24 in jeans and ordered this pair in a size 23. It's pretty snug, especially in the waist and knee area, but ok. The only thing that I do not like that much is that the front pockets tend to bulk a little bit - I assume this would not be the case when sizing up. Regarding the fabric, it's pretty thick and stiff, not as comfortable as Rag and Bone, for example; and the quality does not seem to be as high either. Nevertheless, I kept these jeans, as the color is exactly what I was looking for, and I really love the leg zippers, which make them pretty versatile. All in all, I would recommend to at least give these a try..

Gorgeous - but not for me :(
I really wanted to love Vince's Adria Sandals, as they are all in all absolutely gorgeous! They are comfortable to wear, have a nice padding, are of great quality and the leather is SO soft! However, unfortunately, I very sadly had to return them, because, although they fit really true to size regarding length and width, the ankle cuff was slightly too wide for my VERY thin ankles, which did not look that great :( What a pity! I think they will work out great for nearly everyone, because my ankles are really unusually thin, so - GO FOR IT, girls, you will not be disappointed!
