Hot faux leather shorts, run large
The only reason I am not giving this pair of shorts 5 stars is because they run so LARGE. I'm so perplexed. I'm normally a size 4-6 in dresses; or a size 26-27" in denim. So, I ordered sizes 2, 4, and 6 in order to compare how they would fit. ALL sizes were too large - even the size 2 was too large! And I don't think I am a n extraordinarily tiny or petite girl. I'm honestly just a regular size 4-6. I'm so bummed; I want to try a size "0" but I think size "0" is sold out everywhere. The shorts are really high quality; beautiful material and really soft. The zipper adds a nice kick/punch to otherwise plain black shorts. I really love these shorts, hoping I can find them in a size 0 somewhere,....

Sexy, sporty, silky romper
I was hesitant to purchase this romper after reading the not-so-stellar reviews about it but, I decided to take the plunge after the romper went on sale. I AM SO GLAD I DID! This is such a sexy, sporty, cute, flirty, almost 70s-retro romper in the perfect shade of midnight blue. The material is not stretchy but it's a terrific weight. The shorts are a great length; just short enough to be sexy and a little risque without being slutty and without showing any "cheek" haha. I am typically a size Small (5'3", 36B bra size and 27" waist in denim) so I ordered the small but, it's actually slightly too big. The chest area is slightly too large, the sleeves are too long and I have to cinch the drawstring tightly (but, it does give a nice blouson, drape-y effect). I wish I had ordered a size XS. Alas. I love the romper so much that I decided to order an XS directly from the Rory Beca website to compare the difference in sizes. I would definitely recommend this romper!

Feminine blazer but, just not my style
This blazer was really pretty and feminine; the color is a beautiful beige-gray. The blazer was also true to size (I'm normally a size Small). But, I was disappointed by the quality. I expected a little more structure and it was really "flimsy" and soft; it didn't have much, if any, shape. As a rule, I think blazers should have a little more definition and structure so that they don't look sloppy. Because there was no structure, it actually added weight to me and caused me to look like I gained 5-8 pounds. Not cute. Also, some of the threading was starting to come off (probably because of the lace). I love Rory Beca so, I hate to say it but, this blazer was not worth what I paid (even while on sale). This one had to go back.

Love it in theory; poor execution
The Parker faux wrap top is, in theory, such a beautiful top. I loved the color and material. However, the top fits really strangely and the fabric is too clingy/causes static. I am normally a size Small (36B-27" waist) so I ordere the XS and S to compare. The Small was WAY too big; and even the XS was a little bit too big. The sleeves on both are WAY too big. I don't understand the point of having functional buttons on the sleeve if the sleeves are designed with a way too large diameter. Also, the fabric is the super silky kinda that causes static. My hair was going crazy when I tried it on. As much as I loved the color, I had to return it.

Sexy, suede, stylish bootie
I love these booties! They are super stylish and sexy; my first pair of suede boots, actually. They are surprisingly comfortable (because of the hidden platform). I ordered a size 7 and 7.5 to compare (I am normally a 7) and, oddly, the 7.5 was tighter and less comfortable than the 7 so, I kept the 7. The 7 is perfectly snug; I can't wear socks underneath but, I guess I don't have to with these booties anyway. I'd wear them with cute denim shorts and an oversized t-shirt or skinny jeans/leggings. Highly recommend!

Unique, stylishy, "downtown cool" cuff
I agree with the previous review that this cuff adds that special "je ne sais quoi" to any outfit without making me look like a teeny-bopper trying too hard. :) The material is great; no issues with the fabric or the hair coming out. I do have small wrists so, it is a little bit too big for me but, I just wear it a little higher on my wrist/arm. I can dress this up or down; wear it with a blouse and leather leggings or even an oversized t-shirt and skinny jeans. It's stylish, unique, and a terrific price. Highly recommend if you want to add some downtown character to your accessory set.

Soft, sexy t-shirt!
I adore this t-shirt!! The material is sooooo soft, it feels like suede. It's a flowy, loose, feminine t-shirt; I love the fit and the color. I ordered a size Small, and I normally wear a size Small (36B-27" waist). The only bizarre thing about it are the little holes (they're super tiny holes, your undergarments and skin won't really be playing "peek-a-boo") scattered throughout the shirt. I think the holes are there for a vintage effect.

Gorgeous plaid shirt
I ordered a size XS and it fit perfectly - lengthy and roomy but, not so large that it swallowed me whole. I'm petite (5'2") and normally wear a size S in other shirts. The color is so gorgeous - I immediately received a compliment the first time I wore it out. Excellent quality, excellent brand (I love Madewell!), excellent price.

Hot casual-to-dressy tee
I love this t-shirt!! I typically wear a size S in t-shirts but, the size S in this tee was a bit too large around the shoulders and chest area. So, I ordered an XS and it fit perfectly - snug but not too snug. I'm petite/short (5'2") and I thought the shirt was a bit too long but, it can easily be hemmed. I have the brown/black color - I LOVE the color scheme, it goes well with black leggings / shorts or dark jeans. The metal / mesh is also really sturdy; it won't detach or fall off. You can easily dress this up or dress it down. To dress it up, I am thinking of pairing it with leather leggings and platform heels with some hot jewelry.

Hot leggings, horrible fit
The quality of the faux leather is excellent; so soft and buttery. I took advice posted on another site and purchased a size smaller (4) than what I usually wear. But even then, the waist was TOO large. (These leggings are meant to sit at your waist.) There really isn't elastic in the waistband and the faux leather obviously has no stretch. So, a big waistband helps me to pull the leggings over my hips and butt BUT, the lack of stretch/elastic in the waistband means that the waistband does not "shrink"/recoil around my waist.. Overall result: Fitted over my calves, thighs, and butt (because of the stretchy material on the backside), loose/baggy around my pelvic area, and really loose around my waist. I did not order a size 2 because I figured I would not be able to pull the leggings up past my hips/butt - and I do have hips and a bubble butt. I would recommend ordering a size down (or even two) if you do not have a lot of curves. If you do have curves, maybe get the waist tailored?
