Hmmmm - Send in the clowns?
I really liked the coloring and materials. The shoes come with both red and turquoise laces - a nice touch. However, when I looked down, the front of the shoe seemed so wide: they made me feel like I had on clown shoes. Too bad, because I really wanted to keep these. Oh, and I normally wear a 7.5, but ordered an 8 because the 7.5 was unavailable. The 8 seemed to fit fine lengthwise. So, you might want to consider going up a half size, especially if you are between sizes. The shoe was a little wide, but not too much.

Cute, but two problems
First, the straps did not secure the shoe adequately for me. There was too much side-to-side movement. Every time I stepped down, my foot landed in a new place in the shoe. My foot is not really narrow (I wear regular width shoes), but I have had this problem before. If my foot was fatter the side straps would probably have prevented this problem. Second, the cute chevron "flaps" did not lay properly. When I looked at the shoes in the mirror and from the side, the chevrons jutted up/out in an odd way. They just wouldn't lay flat. Again, this might not be an issue on a different foot. Ignoring these issues: the shoes were cute, though not as cute as I expected them to be.

I like it, but...
I really like the style of this jacket. The fabric isn't quite as thick/structured as I expected, however. Based on the pictures, I thought it was more...fluffy? Instead it has some drape to it and is soft. The fabric reminds me of boucle - it is fairly loosely woven and has "nubs." I wonder if this will make it prone to being snagged. The jacket I received looks like it has a snag or two, but I like it so much I think I may keep it anyway. The hardware is brassy in color but muted. The snaps at the collar and waist are (a bit too?) easy to pull apart. Jacket looks good in variations of closed/open. Note that when zipped and depending on how the jacket is worn, the zipper can tend to bulge. I purchased size 1 and usually wear XS to S. The fit is very good. I was surprised about one thing: the back hem is curved and dips lower than the front. That was not obvious to me because of the way the model is wearing the jacket.

Sophisticated, stylish, edgy
I love Helmut Lang's style, and this item is no exception. It is simple, but so sophisticated. The fabric is not as high a quality as one might expect, but it is soft and for the most part drapes well. I've tried this in size S and XS - neither fit completely to my liking. The small was a bit baggy/droopy. The XS fit in the shoulders (sometimes an issue for me) and body, but the sleeves were tight. I typically wear size XS to S. The sleeves on the XS were almost uncomfortably tight with a long sleeved shirt underneath. Also, there was a lot of friction making it difficult to get the jacket on over the sleeves of my shirt. I can only see wearing this with short or no sleeves underneath. The curvaceous asymmetrical hem gives this jacket a cool, edgy feel. I can see that this might pick-up lint. In fact, I had to pick lint off of the jacket after taking it from the bag.

Grrr... It flips
The necklace is pretty. The silver chain is delicate and has a nice gleam. The stones in the bar glitter much more than I expected and, thus, the necklace looks more expensive than it is. Some of the stones are not set completely straight, and the imperfections can catch the eye if light hits it the right way (or wrong way - lol). My main problem is that the stones are on one side (expected), but the bar easily flips to the other side. I tried it on for less than 5 minutes and had to flip it over at least 3 times. For the money, it wasn't worth the hassle to me.

Love 'em
GREAT pair of coated jeans. Fabric is unbelievably soft and comfortable, not stiff like other coated jeans I've tried. I tried my usual size 26 and, based on reviews, size 25. They both fit. While the 25 was obviously tighter, it wasn't unreasonably so. In fact, the 25 fit the same as some of the 26s I have in other brands. The 26 might have been a tad more comfy, but, after sitting a couple of times, I could tell that they would loosen up. I decided to stick with the 25 to avoid excessive stretching that would ruin the close fit. These are killer jeans. I want more! Oh, only problem was that one pair I received had a flaw where a patch of coating was missing - check yours carefully. I bought black, and they are a very good leather alternative. Fantastic!

Beautiful blue
I usually wear 7.5, but ordered these in 38. That was a good choice; I could not have fit into anything smaller. The shoe was pretty comfortable. It did make noise when I walked, as another review mentioned. The inner vamp gapped unattractively on my feet. That's probably just my anatomy, though.

So cute and comfy
Nice material. Intricate beading. Lots of cushioning - these felt like they'd be great for walking. They are so, so cute. However, the beading was quite a bit more blingy than they appear in the picture. I ordered the black. No doubt, they will be attention grabbers - too much so, for me. I really wanted to keep these, but even in the dim light of my foyer they just shined and shined. I couldn't imagine wearing them out in the sun...they would assuredly sparkle. I just wasn't looking for something quite that noticeable. If you want a cute, comfy shoe that will turn heads, these are for you. Boohoo, for me. I usually wear a size 7.5 and ordered these in 38 for a great fit - they were not excessively roomy.

Basic, but nice
I ordered XS instead of S to avoid a problem with the large armholes mentioned by another reviewer. The armholes are not too big for me, but are cut in too much at the shoulder to wear a regular bra. The fabric is soft, and hangs nicely. The color is rich. The mock turtleneck doesn't really stand up (fine by me). A nice basic.

Hmmm
Blousier than expected, especially the arms. I like the unusual print. I didn't care for something about the button placket, but I can't put my finger on it. Not flattering on me. The v-neck was a bit deeper than it appears online.
