Quintessential Missoni
I love the zigzag pattern that characterizes Missoni, so when this scarf went on sale, I snatched it up. It has beautiful colors and seems to be sturdy. Very beautiful scarf at a high quality.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Size inconsistency
I am a solid 8.5 in Sam Edelman shoes, and in fact the tortoise-shell patterned Danielle high-heel pump that I also ordered fits well in the 8.5 size. However, these shoes were a half size smaller. Also, the color was different than what I was hoping for, which was to match a purse that is a brighter shade than this shoe. Back it went based on those two misfires.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Sexy pointy-toe pump
I am a true 8.5 in Sam Edelman shoes, and this was no exception. The skinny heel is not as difficult to walk in, though the height makes me walk a little slower and with caution. I have a wide foot, but the pointy-toe construction isn't too bad. I don't imagine I'll be doing a lot of walking in these shoes, but they are good for walking to your car and walking to whatever event you're going to. The patent tortoise-shell pattern is very pretty, and the contrasting heel gives this pump some differentiation.

Sleek and comfortable platform booties
I got both the tan and black booties. I've never tried on a pair of Elizabeth and James, so I stuck with the TTS recommendation. I am an 8.5 and can sometimes where an 8, depending upon the brand. I purchased the 8.5 and they fit well. I have a wide foot and the comfort level was good. I have walked around in them without feeling like I'm teetering. I haven't walked for hours in them, but they seem to hold up comfort wise. They aren't heavy or too stiff, and they look very sleek and chic.

Quality necklace
I have gotten into an insect jewelry mode, and this dragonfly necklace by Alkemie fed that obsession. It's a well-made piece of jewelry with that vintage look and feel. I like necklaces that hang chest-high. It's a bit pricey, which is why I waited until it went on sale. I'll be wearing this necklace a lot. I like that Alkemie uses recycled materials and I like their style a lot.

Sizing off, unfinished edges
If the description had said that the edges were raw or unfinished (hem, neckline and armholes), I would have taken a pass. According to the sizing info, the model is wearing a size 2 and has a bust of 31 inches. I'm a 34 but an A-cup (117 pounds, 26-inch waist). It seemed logical to order the 4, but I also ordered the 2, just in case. Well, I was swimming in the size 2. That plus the fact that the edges were unfinished and the leather was really thin, I sent both back, hugely disappointed. I expected much better quality than what I received. The color and the style were great, but that's about it.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Comfortable platform
I have this sandal in the tan color. It looks extremely high, but it's wearable and fine to walk in without pain. The strap and band do not cut into my foot at all. It's a simple design but definitely stands out. I'm a true 8.5 and this fits TTS.

Well-made, quality shoe just not for me
I love Jeffrey Campbell shoes. This came in whole sizes and I'm a true 8.5. I thought because it was a pointy toe I should go with the 9. It was way too big, the angle of the shoe was too extreme for me, and it made my foot look really big. It's a beautiful shoe and well made, but just not for me.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Simple, classic hand chain bracelet
I've been looking for a hand chain bracelet for a long time. I didn't want a fancy one; just one that was simple and classic looking. This Bop Bijoux bracelet fit the bill. It's unique enough as a hand chain bracelet. Sturdy and uncluttered. My only thing is that I could probably take out a few chain links on the wrist to make it less "baggy" on my hand. I don't have a small wrist, either. It's a minor complaint. I really like the bracelet.

Beautiful shirt but Large!
I love this shirt, but I am swimming in the XS. I'm 5'3", 34A, 26 waist. I knew the sleeves would be a bit long since I'm a petite, but the boxy fit is overly exaggerated. I really needed an XXS. I love the lace pattern, however, and the style. Since it's a final sale, I will likely take it to my tailor to have the sleeves shortened and the side seams taken in.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
