Sad it didn't work
Such a cute top. Unfortunately, it pulled across the chest/shoulders on me. I do not have a large chest so it was probably due to my shoulders. I usually wear XS to S and purchased the S. I really wanted it to work. Love the crisp, starched white collar and the band hem on the sleeve. The top did not gap open excessively in the back - the opening is tasteful. FYI: The shirt closes with a hook and eye at the top then several buttons with elastic button loops. Sad face.

I like it, but too big
I like this dainty, full skirt. The S was a bit too big and hung on my hips instead of at my waist as I expected. I will try an XS, although the other JOA skirt I purchased in XS was too small. I'm hopeful the XS will work in this one. Nice fifties look. The crinoline may take a bit getting used to. Note that the striped fabric is also textured.

Hmmm
I purchased S instead of XS, because reviewers of other JOA skirts said they fit small. Well, this one hung a lot lower on me than on the model, because the waist was a bit too big. I tried another JOA skirt in XS, but that was too small. Maybe I'm just between sizes... The material is not so great. I had trouble getting the half polyester, half crinoline under-layer to work. I didn't like the way the waist band is cut from the fabric. It goes against the stripes in a way that made the skirt look like it was falling or was not pulled up completely (hard to explain). Just ok. About what you'd expect for the price.

OK
I can't put my hands on the reason, but the shoe did not have the impact I expected. I was left feeling just - meh. I think it might have been the color, which I thought/think would function as a neutral. The metal straps on the pair I received were scratched when I took them out of the box. That makes me question how well the shoe will hold-up over time. Not impressed.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Vibrant pink
I sized down a half size because I sometimes need to in JC. Not this time. The pink is quite bright. The shoe is cute. I'lll try my regular size and see how it works out.

Colors not as vibrant in person
I usually wear a 7.5. I can occasionally wear an 8, depending on the shoe/designer. Since it was only available in an 8, I decided to give it a try. I was slightly disappointed when I opened the box. The colors are more drab than they appear online. The shoe is also pointier than I thought. That said, it is a nice looking shoe that appears to be well made. The 8 was way too big. So big, I don't think my usual size 7.5 would have fit either.

Still too big
I wear a 7.5 and sized down to a 7 as suggested. The shoe is still too big. It feels and looks a bit clunky, but has lots of padding. I wasn't crazy about the way they look in person. I do like the navy blue, however.

Comfy.
I have these in the silver and came for the black. I had to size down a half size from 7.5 to 7. These are one of the few pairs of slip-ons that work for me. I have a slightly narrow foot and most just don't fit well. The footbed is very comfortable.

Bubble gum machine chic
I don't know how the rings manage to sparkle so much in the photo. In person the rings looked unbelievably cheap. There was hardy any sparkle to the "crystal." There is no fooling anyone that these are anything close to diamonds. My husband even laughed out loud at the rings. So, so bad - you'd be better off getting a ring from the bubble gum machine. I wouldn't even want these if they were free.

Junk after washing
Fit OK - a little smaller than expected before washing. I cared for this as instructed. I was suspect about washing the item as instructed because of the leather trim, but the trim looked washed so I thought it should be OK. Well, the trim was OK, but the shirt shrank and pulled out of shape something awful. The sleeves are now entirely too short - and I am only 5'4". The entire shirt is smaller except the bottom hem. The bottom hem bulges out giving the shirt a (decidedly not cute) bell silhouette. Just ugh! I won't even let my husband see me in this around the house... a complete waste of money. Sad face!
