Perfect for me, but posts are shorter
Absolutely adore these earrings. They're an easy-to-wear basic that is a touch edgy. I have thinner earlobes that are small in size, and usually find that standard length posts are too long and jab into the side of my head. Not so with these! Petite girls, rejoice. :) Those with thicker lobes may find that the posts are on the short side.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Maternity Staple
I bought these at around 15 weeks, and they're still fitting me very well now at 30 weeks! Unlike some other maternity jeans with panels that I've tried, this panel has a great amount of stretch and reaches all the way to the top of my belly (still), and the panel is also made of a material that has slip to it, which allows tops to sit nicely instead of catching. (I have a pair of Paiges with a panel made of the grippiest material ever, and no shirt looks right on top of them.) I took my pre-pregnancy size 26, and expect these to last through to the end of my pregnancy without issue! Highly recommend.

Poor shape retention
These jeans fit well upon first putting them on, but over the course of the day, they bagged out badly in "bending" areas like the knees and butt. Wonderfully soft material, but it has very poor shape retention. I wish I had the foresight to wear these around the house for a while first before removing the tags.

Did not work for my body type
I have another pair of Rag & Bone high rise skinnies (Clean wash) that fit amazingly well, so I was really looking forward to having a black pair as well. Unfortunately, the material seems to behave quite differently despite their identical compositions. I have a small waist but large butt/thighs, and I couldn't pull these all the way up my leg. Those with average thighs should not have any issues. I took a size 25 (based on reviews), even though my typical denim size is 26, and the waist area was perfect.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Nice casual dress
I was a bit concerned after reading the previous 2 reviews, but it turns out that this dress fits me fairly well, and the amount of material in the skirt is not excessive or overwhelming on my frame. I am 5'2", and curvy/hourglass. The length is just perfect! The front hem is just above the knee on me, and I love the shirttail cut. I took a size 1, and am typically a Small in most items. The waist does look better belted, so I am wearing this with a thin tan leather belt most of the time, but it's not shapeless without a belt either. The skirt portion is double-layered, but the Charcoal colour is not sheer at all. It's a very versatile dress. I definitely need to dock a star for the price though. Even with the Friends & Family discount, I thought it was outlandishly expensive for a crinkly cotton dress. However, it does fill a hole in my wardrobe, so I will keep it.

Stiff
The coating on these jeans is super thick, gorgeous, and leather-like. As a result, unfortunately, there is pretty much no give in the fabric, and I could not even put these jeans on in my usual JBrand size 26. Too bad!

Super comfortable!
SO incredibly soft, with quite a lot of stretch. The material is quite thin, but that also adds to the comfort factor -- I just won't be wearing these in winter! A perfect TTS size 26. I have larger thighs, and the stretch accommodates them perfectly!

A great "staple" pair of skinnies
The stretch in these is perfect. I have a small waist but large thighs, and these fit wonderfully due to the stretch. At the same time, it's not the type of stretch that would bag out over the course of the day either! The wash is a nice, medium blue, which does lean to the casual side of things. All in all, a great basic.

Super comfortable!
I love the fabric composition of the Photo Ready jeans. They have quite a bit of stretch, but won't lose their shape as the day goes on like some other jeans I've tried. Wonderful fabric for curvy/hourglass figures like mine, where you need the waist to fit snugly but require more room in the thighs and backside. The Impression wash is lovely. It falls somewhere between a blue and a black! I found that these are TTS (took a 26 like the vast majority of my jeans), but the waist seems a touch higher than my other 811s.

Cute cheap thrill
I got the grey corded version, and I find that the colour is very complementary to the goldtone beads. I really love it stacked with other gold bracelets. The cord is lightly waxed, and seems durable. My only concern is the knots seem like they would come undone easily. The bracelet's adjustability is probably its best feature! I also love the toggle closure for ease of putting on and taking it off. Great stacking piece.
