Quality, slim-fit turtleneck
I was looking everywhere for a slim "beatnik" style black turtleneck - all the sweaters this season were huge! This fit the bill. The fabric is very thick and stretchy and high quality, and it feels like it will last a long time. The fit isn't quite as perfect as a Vince turtleneck, which I needed to replace, but it's slim and flattering. I'd order again!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Lovely basic!
These earrings are a lovely polished basic! They are a good size - noticeable, but not too large and you don't feel them. You won't even notice the logo when wearing them.

Nice quality, for tall girls!
I'm 5'2" and small all over, and I LOVE the look of jumpsuits but have never found one to fit. The size "0" fit well enough if I got alterations, but for the price I didn't feel it was worth it so I sent it back. It's great styling, would work for day or night, and high quality fabric, so if you're a bit taller or could size down, I'd recommend it.

High quality, flattering pants.
I'm 5'2" and small all over, so I struggle to find great pants that aren't jeans. I ordered these in the "00" and they're perfect! They're very flattering--not dumpy like a lot of harem pants--and very high quality fabric you'd expect from Vince. They did not require any alterations. My only complaint is that there are no belt loops, but I love them regardless.

Gorgeous, flattering basic!
I LOVE this dress! I'm always on the lookout for quality basics with beautiful details, and I know I'll get a ton of wear out of this dress (in black). I'm 5'2", 105-108lbs., and 32C bust and the size "0" fit perfectly, like most of my Nanette Lepore dresses. Since I'm short, I usually have to get longer dresses hemmed, but not this one - it falls on me exactly where it does on the model, no alterations required. It's demure enough for a creative/casual office and will look great with sandals or dressed up. ORDER IT!

Unflattering and huge!
I have a closet full of DVF, and had hoped this dress would be a great work-to-cocktails basic for spring and summer. This dress runs VERY LARGE - I'm almost always a 0, and sometimes a 2, in DVF, and the 0 was loose and gaping with an unflattering cut. If you're able to size down one or two sizes, it might work well, but otherwise, skip it.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Awkward fit and fabric.
I ordered the top (in sizes 0 and 2) as well as the matching skirt, because I thought the outfit looked SO GOOD on the model. Well, it looked awful on me! I'm 5'2", 105-108lbs., and 32C bust, and both tops were loose and unflattering. The fabric is scratchy and very strange, too. I sent it all back!

Awkward fit and fabric.
This skirt and matching top looked SO GOOD on the model, but did not work for me AT ALL. I own a skirt by Tibi in a similar silhouette in a dark green sateen fabric, and it's gorgeous and flattering. I thought this would be great for spring, but it looked horrible. I'm 5'2", 105-108lbs. and the size 0 skirt (same size as my other Tibi skirt) was too tight in the waist but also looked dumpy. I sent the skirt and top back!

Nice basic, but didn't fit.
I wanted to love this dress, but the fit was off. I'm 5'2", 105-108lbs., 32C bust, and I often find that Vince runs a little large on me. I ordered the 00, but it was just a little too tight in the bust to the point it flattened me oddly, and it was shorter than I'd like for work. I then ordered the 0, but it was too large and I didn't think it was worth tailoring.

Good basic, but runs large.
I ordered this dress in black, and while it's what you'd expect from a basic Splendid dress, I sent it back. First, I think it runs large. I'm 5'2", 105 lbs with some curves and I ordered the XS. I expected I'd need to get it hemmed, but I would have had to cut about a FOOT off the bottom, and even then, there was a ton of excess fabric from the waistline down. It's cut well up top but I was worried that it would look strange even with alterations. If you're tall, it would work great! Second, while it's a good basic, I think you can find something similar/better for cheaper, or at least wait until it goes on sale. If you're very tall or need it now, go ahead and order; otherwise, wait or look elsewhere!
