What happened?
I've never tried an item so different than as modeled. I have three skinny jeans from C/E so I know and love the fit. These are stove-pipe straight on me, chunky looking--not slim or fitted all the way down as shown or even like my other C/E skinnies. The fabric is much heavier and stiffer than it looks, with minimal stretch. The color has darker than expected. It almost seems I received a different jean than shown. My hunt for the perfect red skinny continues.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Nice Surprise
Total impulse buy; it looked so good modeled I couldn't help myself. The color is perfect and just as shown. It's a stretchy fabric, it's soft, I like the details and it fits great. Score.

Streamlined
Thanks to the reviews I got an XS instead of a S and it grabs me under the arms more than I'd like but the profile is great. I'm usually a S, chest 34.5. If you want a more slimming profile size down, but the dress seems meant to be pretty straight and not as shapely as shown. The hemline is adorable.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Baby Doll
The cut of this top falls away from the body and the fabric doesn't quite drape enough to outline the body. I usually wear a S or XS in this line, one of my favorite designers. If you have boobs you could look either really busty or kinda preggers. The aubergine color and soft fabric themselves looked and felt great though.

Better Than Expected
Finally, a puffer jacket that doesn't make me look fat! Though normally I get the size as modeled the look was too roomy so I got the XS and I'm glad I did. While the bulkiest sweaters won't fit under it, the look is trim and clean and I love it. I've gotten two items from State & Lake (a messenger bag and this) and impressed by the quality and price point both times.

Nice!
Great sweater, the various weaves create so much visual interest. It's comfortable and soft, true to size. The collar's more substantial than it appears; it's almost as long as the sweater itself and unbuttoned it can drape flatly across the chest which is a different look altogether (or just so you can get it stuffed under your overcoat). One star off because it is really, really cropped and I say that being all of 5'0" tall. Undershirt a necessity unless you wear high-waisted pants. Otherwise it's super cool.

Cool
Wow these are way cool. I obsessed and hesitated about these shorts because they're so unique they're harder to wear. Fascinating construction details and great quality. The fabric is hefty like a double-faced knit. I wish it were an easier color though. The belt is leather, not a throw-away and will work with a multitude of outfits. I'm usually a size 2, jeans 26 and I found these true to size and a bit more roomy in the hips, like trousers should be.

Nice Surprise!
This looks a lot better on than the pictures depicted. This is a super-casual jacket - a sweatshirt blazer, how weird is that - but the cut is just awesome. Imagined in a wool gabardine you'd look like a million bucks. Maybe too casual for the office but I'll make it work and maybe get the other color too. I love it!

Cool
I was worried it'd be too masculine and yes it's a bit boxy but it falls right on me. The knit has heft so it's more substantial than your everyday tee. The long version was a bit too much for me but the tee is perfectly bold but not too bold. I love it.

Cute
This is a sweet sweater with nice details. It's true to size, and I usually wear a small but it was too fitted for my taste and made me look super busty which is not an okay look for me. If you like that I highly recommend this adorable sweater.
