Didn't love the leather
These are very nice looking boots. I wasn't crazy about the leather, though. It was a lot thicker and stiffer than what I expected. And perhaps partly as a result, I had a really tough time getting my feet into the boots. It's altogether possible the leather would have gotten softer and more manageable with wear, but I wasn't about to risk $600 to find out, so I sent them back.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Prob good for a smaller/narrower face
These sunglasses were too small on my face (I ultimately went with the Charlie Sunglasses), but they're still a gorgeous pair of glasses: plastic frames, but very sturdy feeling; a very comfortable weight on the face. My one word of caution is that the black frames might be too harsh on some skin/hair combinations. I'm light-skinned with blond hair, and the very pretty but also very stark black color was a little much against my coloring. If they come back in stock, I'd recommend the gray or brown frames for light-skinned blondes.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Big, gorgeous sunglasses
A word of caution: These are some very generously sized sunglasses. I don't imagine they'd work well for people with particularly narrow or small faces. But if they do work with you're face, they're gorgeous. They're plastic frames, but they feel very sturdy. I also find them to be a very comfortable weight on my face -- neither too lightweight nor too heavy. I have light skin and blond hair. I purchased the light brown/dark brown frames, and they go beautifully with my coloring. I also tried on the other colors in a store: The black frames were way too harsh for my coloring; the gray/black frames looked amazing on, which surprised me a little since I didn't really love the color just looking at the glasses on the display case.

Perfection!
The style of these rings probably isn't for everyone, but if you like the style, don't hesitate to buy!!! This is a really beautiful and interesting piece of jewelry, and the rings are solid with a nice weight to them. I wear the rings on my middle and ring fingers. My middle finger is a size 8, and my ring finger is a normal-to-large size 7. I bought this ring in a size 8, and both rings fit perfectly. Really love this piece!

Weirdly lopsided and lumpy
I wanted to love this: I love Rebecca Minkoff's bags and accessories. The denim-colored leather is absolutely gorgeous. And the gold hardware perfectly complements the leather color. Unfortunately, the pouch itself looked almost kind of home-sewn. It was sort of lumpy, and the side with the key ring attached is shaped differently from the other side, so it just looks kind of lopsided. As such, this particular item was a bit of a disappointment, but I'm *totally* going to buy a bag in the denim-colored leather. It's really, really beautiful!

Ugly Yellow Details
A lot about this bag is really nice: Perfect size, great military green color, felt pretty sturdy. But I *hated* the yellow details on the bag. They look relatively subtle in the pictures on the site, but in person, they stand out like ugly, clashing sore thumbs -- just really cheap-looking, bright yellow stitching in a couple different places on the bag (i.e., the middle of the bag at the bottom, along the inside of the handles at the top, and where the straps attach to the bag). Without the yellow stitching, this would have been a 4-5 star bag; but with the stitching, yuck!

Beautiful, but do size down!
I'm always a little skeptical of recommendations to buy a full size down, but they're not kidding on this one! I bought a size down because my normal size in True Religion wasn't available, and I'm so relieved -- my normal size would have been falling off me! Apart from that, though, I love these pants! They're cargo style, but still super-feminine, which is a tough balance to achieve! Looking forward to pulling them on for casual spring or fall afternoons out with the girls! Five star pants, but one star off for the crazy sizing!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Super Model Length Legs Only
Unfortunately, I neglected to check the inseam on these pants before ordering them (35 inches). It was so tragic because everything else about them was perfect:: gorgeous fit, deep black color, soft and comfortable fabric. But even wearing my absolute tallest heels, the cuffs dragged along the floor, so I had to return them.
