Pretty dress
Sweet lace LBD, very comfortable. I am a small 00 and the 0 is a little large on me, which is normal. I like the wide straps which allow you to wear a bra without showing, making the evening more comfortable - however I had to shorten the straps considerably (I am 5'2") to make the dress work. My biggest caveat would be that I have only worn this dress 2-3 times and the lace is looking a little frayed around the edges. I think it's pretty delicate and doesn't take well to travel or being manhandled at the drycleaner!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Very elegant and versatile
I needed a dress for a serious meeting but wanted something I'd wear again. This dress was great. It's very simple, but the shaped neckline, which is really flattering, makes it "fashion-y" and evening-worthy. With a jacket, it goes to a meeting nicely, and without, it's a conservative but chic evening piece. It DOES have that Theory sticky zipper that is a huge pain. On sizing: I am 5'2", a small 00 and the 0 fit me perfectly. I would have hemmed it if I hadn't had such a conservative meeting, and I may still, as it hits just above the knee. Almost all size 0s need taking in for me, and while Theyskens' Theory 0s seem to run small, this one runs even smaller than most.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Just OK - surprising for J Brand
IMO these run about two sizes large - I ordered my usual size, a 23, which should be freaking tight on me (or any normal human), and they were very large at waist and hips. Other reviewers are correct in that there is a "broad" thing happening at the hips that isn't very flattering. Belting helps, but....All in all a preppy-looking chino that's not in the least sexy. Fabric is nice, though. To get the slim chino look I wanted, I bought J Brand khaki capris three sizes too big for me and nipped the waist - my husband agrees it's a much better slouchy, sexy, chino.

Nice maxi
Nice column skirt with a nice fall. I'd keep it if I did not already have the Ella Moss that is virtually identical, a bit more comfortable, and with a rollable waistband. The waist on this skirt is definitely small - the XS fits me, and my waist is about a 23.

Nerf sweater?
Weird knit - has a Nerf-ball-like spongy texture. I wouldn't try to wash or dry-clean this sucker- looks VERY dicey. It's also a blocky, square shape and it is NOT a roll-neck - it's a crew neck. Also, more a yellowy cream than you see in the pictures where it looks white. Not very flattering.

Super chic
Love it. Love the zipper up the back. Love that it really is a nice small size 0. Love the quality of the wool. Love the sale price. Just be aware - it's a snug skirt all the way down so has a bit of a hobble skirt effect. I had to run for a plane in this skirt. It was just a tiny bit funny. Nonetheless, I love it.

I'm scared of clowns
I am all about Mr. Lim. And I am all about the high-waisted palazzo pant. However, to make such pants work, there needs to be some fit at waist and hips and an artful fall. This sucker is so big and generally shapeless that it's impossible to make it work. I bought the 0 - I often do have to take 0s in - but this was so big that alteration was not an option. Frankly, I am not sure the cut would be flattering even if they had fit better. Return pile.....

Very McQ, bustle n all!
This is a great dress for someone who wants that McQueen/Westwood architectural eccentric look. However- if you have breasts you are going to have a rough time, as the stretchy top bodice - the only unstructured part of the dress - is cut for an A cup. The dress overall is cut quite small as is normal with McQ - I am a 00 or XXS, 5'1" and around 95- and it fits closely on me but well - until you reach the bust. I am a D cup and this just ain't happening! With the dress on sale and all I might have had bra cups put in and made it work - but the other issue with the dress is that the torso is cut quite long. I am not short-waisted, but this is a dress cut for a taller girl. Too bad!

Great, simple dress
A strapless dress that can dress down with flats and a little sweater, or dress up with heels at night, is a killer summer staple. This one has a really nice, simple, flattering shape and the fabric seems to have a bit of structure. I bought the XS and it fits me- I am 5'1" and about 95 - but it has room to give for someone a size bigger. Lengthwise I can just wear it with flats without hemming it - just. Very happy with this one.

Almost right
The color of these pants is nice - you cannot really see the stripe, so it's a warm cream-almost light khaki. However, on a petite girl like me, these are a little too high-waisted and just generally not all that flattering. They would probably be great on a taller person. I am a 00 or thereabouts and the 0 was roomy in the waist and hips- if I had kept them I would have taken them in.
