not as pictured!
these boots do funny things when you put them on. the color (iron) was beautiful and they look super cute out of the box but once you put them on, the troubles begin. the ankle opening is enormous! i mean i had several inches of open space around my ankle/calf. also, the zipper does not close - which i knew from a previous review - but the elastic bands make the zipper area gap funny so you end up with this weird open-closed-open-closed effect and not the straight line pictured. really wanted to like these, going to try the joe's jeans ones instead.

not for wide feet
cute concept but it just didn't work well for me. they are chunkier than expected and are not flattering to wide feet like mine.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

fits well, fabric somewhat stiff
i was a little worried taking these out of the bag as they felt a lot stiffer than i had imagined the fabric was going to be. however, after trying them on and putting around the house for 10 minutes while i tried on my other purchases, they were surprisingly comfortable. i wear a 26/27 in jeans and the 27 fits comfortably - not super tight but not loose anywhere either. i am 5'2 and they are a little long for me and i'm not sure if i can alter them since they have zippers at the ankles. overall, a great deal!

would be cute shorter
i think only really tall, very skinny girls can pull this dress off. i am a petite 5'3 and usually an xs/s or 2 in dress sizes. this dress was very baggy and there was definite potential for it to come slipping off the shoulders (a little scary), which would have been workable except it came almost to my knees! i fake-pinned it up about 4-5 inches and it was a lot cuter and more like how it appears on the model. the color is also more shimmery than it appears on the model. in the end, i wore a LBD i already owned to the holiday party i ordered this for as i didn't have time for alterations.

these run small!
these pants are super super cute on and the fit thru the legs is really nice - HOWEVER, the waist area is strangely off. it's REALLY tight and even unbuttoned & unzipped i had a hard time getting these on over my hips in my normal size 2! it should be noted that it is a SNAP BUTTON closure - so these could potentially fly open if they fit too tight. the rise is also higher than pictured - coming maybe just under the belly button. i am petite 5'3 and i have a long torso - not much in the way of curves so if you have an hourglass shape, i'd stay away from these. i'm thinking about reordering these in a size 4 - they are that cute!

wish they had these in my size
loved the look of these and they were out of 27s so i thought i'd try the 28s in the hopes that the previous reviewer who said they ran really small was right. nope. they are beautiful but they run absolutely true to size and they 28s were just too loose around the knees and waist. i love the fabric, the color (navy), the zipper accents, the length - in short, i really love them but they don't have my size left. too bad, so sad...

didn't like the color
this is a nice sweater - very warm since it's double-layered and reversible, but i personally don't like the color/pattern combinations ( i ordered the black/grey). i definitely don't think it translates well in the pictures. one side is black and grey rugby stripes and the other is navy and grey with black accents at the collar and cuffs. p.s. it fits very snugly and is very soft.

stiff fabric, good fit
initially pulling these out of the bag i wasn't sure i'd like them. they are pretty stiff but after putting them on and wearing them around the house for 10-15 minutes, they became comfortable. you can't beat the price for such a cute fit. i do wish these had butt pockets as they would be more flattering and utilitarian looking.

strange fit
really wanted to love these since they were on sale and the color and rise are very nice; however, they run pretty large (weird for e&j, which usually is a tight fit) and bag & sag at the knee and butt area. really disappointed.

awkward shape subpar fabric
the fabric of this sweater is kind of rough and stiff making it difficult to wear. the shape is very boxy, which would be fine except for the fact that there is excessive fabric so that when the front falls correctly - you have these weird extra wings sticking out in the back and vice versa. even for so cheap, this is going back. p.s. the color is actually very nice.
