Gorgeous top!
I bought this top from another website but I thought I'd review it here anyway. The 'new Cahil' top has a more conservative neckline than the 'old Cahil' but is still very beautiful. The stretch silk fabric is amazing. Contrary to a previous reviewer I found the colour to be just as pictured - a soft rosy pink that I think will suit many skin tones. It is a loose fit. I bought my usual DVF size 8 and for me it fits like a tunic, skimming over my hips. I can wear it over skinny jeans or even wear it tucked into a skirt, since the fabric is so soft and not bulky. All in all I highly recommend this purchase.

Perfection
I did not buy these boots from Shopbop because my size wasn't available. However, I thought I'd throw in my two cents worth about sizing. These boots are true to size. I am consistently a 37 for most Italian/European made shoes; except for Jimmy Choo and Lanvin, where I take a 37.5. In US sizing I take a 6.5. My feet are of medium width; not narrow, not wide. Intuitively I ordered these Acne boots in size 37 and with regular socks on, they are perfect and I'm thrilled with them. They are slightly narrower than the Rag & Bone mid-heel Moto boots (I'm a 37 here, too) but they are a lot easier to get into and out of. I've had no 'breaking-in' issues because the leather, though stiff initially, becomes malleable very quickly. Worth every cent and, for me, certainly lives up to all the hype. PS: I also found the sizing conversion chart on the Acne website to be useful and accurate.

Bravo Missoni!
I think Missoni scarves are fabulous and this one is no exception. The lightweight weave makes this scarf really versatile as a year round accessory and its 'infinite' nature means it's more likely to stay on you if you get caught out in a gust of wind! I purchased the beige/brown/grey colourway and I love how I can throw it on many of my outfits to give them that final slick Missoni polish.

Confirmed fan of signature shirts
I now have 3 of these signature blouses: in black, plum and hibiscus. The washed silk fabric makes these shirts extra comfortable, in my opinion, and the tailoring is outstanding. I have them in size S and size M but being an Australian size 8-10 for tops, size S is a much better fit for me. The M is good for when I want a really casual look. I hand wash my shirts, in cold water and liquid detergent for delicates, and then have the rinse water spun out in the washing machine before hanging to dry. They come out looking as good as new every time. These shirts are good looking and good value too!

Great tights
These are my second pair of Spanx tights and I think they're great. They are really opaque and the charcoal colour that I bought goes well with taupe, grey and black clothes. My pants size is Australian 10-12 and at 150cm, the Spanx size B is a perfect fit for me. I live in opaque tights during winter, so will definitely purchase more of these tights.

Cute little blue belt
Although I normally wear a size M in skirts and pants, I had to get this belt in an L because the M would've been too short. I am not overwhelmed by the quality of the leather which is quite thin, unlike leather belts by Ferragamo or Chloe, for example. So even at the sale price I don't think it's terrific value. But I'm still keeping it because since it's a wide belt it acts as a sort of external corset, the tie-style makes it a versatile belt and the blue colour is rather unique.

Now I know what the fuss is about....
I had been contemplating purchasing this dress for a few months but hesitated because I couldn't get a sense of how it was cut. Anyway, I took the plunge and was pleasantly surprised. The silk chiffon shell is actually almost a tulip cut with batwing style sleeves, so the overall effect is more flattering than if the dress was an A-line trapeze cut. I am only 150cm tall, so the dress comes up to just above my knees which is fine by me. The neckline is quite low but not in a bad way. Overall, it is an easy to wear and very feminine dress. True to DVF size, if a little generously cut. I now appreciate why it has an almost cult-like following!

Understated style
I purchased this scarf in the black/grey as I wanted something in a neutral colour and is lightweight, to wear with brightly coloured clothes. This fits the bill perfectly especially since I live in a place with a mild climate. The Missoni design is distinct but at the same time, understated and stylish. Love it!

A burst of flattering colour
I bought this blouse in the peppy pink colour and it is simply gorgeous. As another reviewer stated, it is really a coral pink which would flatter and 'brighten' many skin tones. The tailoring is superb, with beautifully finished French seams. The neckline is low but I noticed that the blouse comes with little press stud bra strap holders, which helps the neckline stay in place. It is true to DVF size. I am an Australian size 10 and I bought my usual DVF size 8 for a perfect fit. Petites may find that the sleeves come right down to the wrist bone unllike the website image. But considering the quality and price, this piece is excellent value.

A dress with attitude
Opinions about this dress seem to be polarising - you either love it or you don't. I absolutely adore it. Yes, it is a boxy cut and an oversized fit but while the dress covers a wearer's contours, the wearer herself actually becomes highly visible in this eyecatching design. So, expect admiring looks. The fabric is a substantial opaque silk that drapes beautifully. All you would need accessories wise are bold heels, one piece of statement jewellery and a whole lot of attitude!
