Wash Out
This was a lovely material but the color was very, very light. On a pale person like me, it was completely washing me out. I had to return it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not for Me
I was really excited to get this dress, but I found the cut sort of awkward-- it's VERY short and also a bit wide and blousey. On a very tall skinny person that might look cool, but on me, it just wasn't working.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Cool Top
This top looks lovely paired with a black pencil skirt and is already a great go-to piece in my work wardrobe. I'm not a huge fan of scuba material generally, but it is nice that it is never wrinkled and very easy to clean. The cut is really nice too. One thing I hadn't realized is that it's pretty structured with shoulder pads. Still, a great purchase.

Just Love It
I was skeptical this top would work for me. I'm a somewhat curvy girl, and couldn't imagine the arm cuts being flattering. I have to say though I how very wrong I was. This top looks amazing paired with a pencil skirt and is incredibly flattering. The high-low aspect of the peplum is also a nice touch. it was a bit stretchier than I realized-- this is not a still, structured top-- but I've loved it since it arrived and am not looking back!

Great Design, Decent Fabric
I love the print of these skirt, and it fits wonderfully. The fabric though is not what I had imagined. It's very stretchy and almost a touch spandexy or scuba-like, without a lining. It looks good, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're not prepared to show your curves!

Good, not Great.
This sweater, in my opinion, is just OK. It has a nice cut and hangs well, but the knit is quite loose, so it's not super warm. (It would almost be better for fall or spring than winter.) It also isn't a cozy, fuzzy sweater, and actually feels a little rough to the touch. I think next time I'd spend a bit more and get a cashmere waterfall cardigan. I do really like the hook, however, and the way the sweater can be worn two ways.

Amazing Staple
I love Theory for high-quality staples, and this sweater does not disappoint. Beautiful color, super soft, lovely cashmere-- it looks good with everything and is so comfortable, you'll want to wear it daily.

Didn't Last!
I loved the look of these jeans-- a nice faded gray color, and the perfect amount of distressing. However, after wearing them only five times-- and doing nothing more physical in them than eat brunch-- a huge hole developed in one of the knees. I definitely wouldn't buy them again.

Baggy Knees
I wanted to really love these jeans. They're a gorgeous color, with a nice matte finish. I've been a bit disappointed by how they wear though-- after one wear, I find that they stretch out a bit, getting baggy around the knees and a little loose at the waist. Washing them shrinks them back, but then they stretch again. If I didn't see the label, I wouldn't have guessed these were premium denim.

A Bit Roomy
This sweater is lovely and soft, and raw edges and gray heather color are just beautiful. It is definitely a relaxed fit, however. I know others love the cut but on my petite (but curvy) frame it looks a little blousy around the stomach area. I'm debating whether to keep it as a result.
