Super flattering, great color
Love these! I don't normally look good in skinny jeans, but these fit beautifully, and I've received lots of compliments. I'm a size 27 and have found them true to size. The stretch is good and flexible, without stretching out by the end of the day.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute, but you have to be bold
This is a very cute dress, but I found the pattern to be a bit bold for me. Also, I didn't like that it's signed "DIane" on the bottom, front, left side. That just felt funny to me. The cut is very generous. I think it works if you're on the smaller side, but I think if you're a bigger girl, it's going to look like a muu muu. One small problem is that if you lift your arms out to the side, you can see through to your bra. That's not a major fault though. As far as the fabric, it's nice, on the thicker side. Overall, a cute dress. Just make sure you like the pattern. It's really a lot to take in person.

Totally Average
I know these pants got a tremendous amount of 5-star reviews, but I just don't get it. I'm 5'8" and about 125 pounds. I ordered the 27 and they fit, but were super unflattering. First, they were pretty short in length - like, I'd have to wear them with flats short. Then, the cut of the leg just didn't work for me. My legs are much bigger at my upper thighs and very small around the ankles. Normally, the boot cut look is ideal for me, but these just didn't work. I'd only recommend these to someone with straight legs and/or who is petite. Also, the fabric felt like Gap quality. Overall, I just wasn't impressed. Sending them back.

So flattering!
Tried on and bought these at a store today. I tried both the colored denim and the regular denim and found the regular denim to be true to size and the colored denim to run a size small. They're super flattering though. I'm 5'8" and about 125 pounds - I have curvier hips, a round butt, and thighs that are much bigger at the top than they are at the bottom (skinny jeans with flats is my worst nightmare). I love the trendiness of J Brand and own several pairs, but most of them really aren't that flattering on my hips/butt. These are amazing for some reason. They're a mid-rise, which normally looks terrible on me but not in this case, and have just the right amount of flare to make your legs look long and lean. My boyfriend gives them 5 stars too.

Gorgeous
This dress is amazing. I wore it to a black tie wedding and got lots of compliments. I was a little worried the fabric wouldn't be of super high quality, but it is. It's also incredibly forgiving. It somehow drapes perfectly over your stomach so you don't have to suck in the whole night. It also has just the right amount of stretch. I'm pretty flat-chested and found that the top is cut in the most amazing way to stay out of your armpits so that you don't sweat on it, but not so far in that you feel like you're going to have a nip-slip. I feel like I can wear this dress for years to come. It's great.

Super cute, just not that comfortable
I live in LA but got these for trips I'd be taking this winter to Dallas and New York. I thought the fleece lining would be really warm and that there would be a platform sole made of rubber, which would make walking more comfortable. Totally wrong about those things. The fleece stops around the ankle, so your feet/toes won't really be kept warm (especially since they're made of canvas), and there is no platform, really - just a super tall heel, so they're not exactly the best walking shoes. However, they are RIDICULOUSLY cute! I got them in green, and they do look in person almost exactly as they do online, only somehow even cuter. It's rare that you find a boot that looks great over skinny jeans and great under bootcut pants - these do both. I just wish they had a platform under the toe so they'd be easier to walk in - they're almost the perfect boot. As far as sizing, I'd say they're pretty true to size. Maybe order a half size up if you want to wear them with really thick socks.

About right for the money
I like this sweater. The fabric is okay, soft, but not luxurious - however, it is only $90, so I feel it's priced right for the money. The hem is a bit different on mine than it is in the photo though. Mine is shorter in the front and back but longer on the sides. (I feel like it looks more asymmetrical in the pic.)

Just Okay
I'm a small 34A usually, but the cups on the 34A were a little big on me, and the band on the 32A was a little tight. (That's probably more my body being difficult than the bra though.) The main reason I returned this was that I didn't think the fabric was so nice. Sorta felt more like a $35 bra to me.

Very Flattering and Comfortable
I liked that these looked good and would be versatile, however, the size 4 ended up being a little big on me. (I'm about 5'8" and 1225 - usually a size 27 in J Brand, Seven, etc.)

SUPER large
I'm 5'8" and 125 pounds with curvy hips. I normally wear a size 27 in brands like J Brand and Seven, but after reading the reviews that these run large, I ordered a 26 and 25. I'm never a 25, but even the 25s in these were a little roomy. What are they thinking? These pants were cute, but I ultimately returned them because I didn't think they were very flattering in the butt. The fabric doesn't give you great shape or support - it's sort of thin and seems like it would stretch out easily. These are probably great if you're a mom and need something cute and comfortable while running after your kids, but I didn't think the fit of these was flattering or sophisticated enough for work. I will say that the cargo pockets on these are a lot flatter and better fitting than what I've seen on other cargo pants. For instance, on the Seven cargos, they really stick out and look puffy. These are much more streamlined, which I thought looked nice.
