Roomy carryall for summer
I took a flyer on this, not being familiar with the brand, because I wanted a casual bag for the w/e that would hold lots of stuff and I loved the look. I ordered it in camel. Roomy inside, but the interior zip pocket on one side and compartments on the other help with organizing small things. I've stuffed tons in it and it's very comfortable to carry empty or full. Because of the short strap, you can carry it in the crook of your arm if you get tired of having it over your shoulder. A great summer bag! Appears to be well-made generally, although I have some concerns about how sturdy the handle/strap will be. The leather is quite thin and doesn't seem to have extra reinforcing. I'm unsure how it will wear over the long term, especially if regularly carrying a lot of weight. It is a large bag, and because of the bucket/cylinder style (it's not tapered toward the top) and the short strap, some might find the way it sits under the arm against the body to be a bit strange.

Great kicks
Love them. Perfect for the weekend (especially now that I have children) with skinny jeans, leggings, or short skirts. They are practical but look good - even my husband liked them! The leather is somewhat stiff and for some reason, the right boot was slightly more difficult to put on (my foot got stuck at the ankle opening - strange, since my left foot is the bigger one), but they were not at all uncomfortable once on. I mean, I think they're meant to be sturdy! They're not a "fashion" boot. As for fit, my calves and ankles are I guess fairly slender and I normally wear an 8.5/39 (normal width). I ordered these in 8.5, and they're exactly right. However, given the effort to get one foot in, I could see how someone with a wider or higher foot might have some trouble at the ankle.

Fabulous Shoe! Great value!
Just received these and am so pleased. They look great, fit perfectly, are comfortable to wear, and I'm impressed with the quality. These are more comfortable and appear to be better quality than many shoes that cost the same or more. The Army Green is neutral enough that it will be with a lot in my closet, yet is just different enough to be interesting. My only small complaint is that the upper liner is synthetic (as is often the case with less expensive shoes), but I wore them all day yesterday and didn't get any blisters, which is a good sign. I'll consider this brand again.

Flattering skirt of the season
I'm a big fan of Ella Moss. The cut and fit always works, and the clothes are always good value for the price. I'm 5'8" and the M was the right length for me - but the waistband can be folded over for adjustments up or down. The curvy cut is flattering. I didn't find it too heavy and I'm really looking forward to wearing this on the weekends with some brown chunky sandals and a white T-shirt. I'm really pleased with this purchase.

Unique but could be better
I'm 5'8" and bought a medium and the length is perfect. Love the flowy feel and I'm looking forward to wearing it to work when the weather is warmer. I have no concerns about the fabric but the belt is NOT leather, and the cut of the top is I think too large (unless I should have bought a size small). I'm short-waisted so to partially offset the extra fabric I'm going to wear a thicker belt with it and I may consider getting it taken in at the ribs a bit. Would I have bought it if I was in a store and tried it on? Maybe not. But let's not forget that it is a VERY low price for a silk dress. A few nips and tucks and adjustments and I think it's going to be a staple this summer.

Cozy
I wanted something to wear around our drafty house to take the chill off. This is very soft and cozy and the knit design is lovely. Yes, it does shed, but given that it has mohair in the blend that isn't surprising. I ordered a medium but would have been fine with the small, as the shoulder seam doesn't sit quite right on me. I'm fine with it given the reason I ordered it.

Killer and Worth It!
Just got these and they're fantastic. The leather (on the grey-ish colour) is buttery soft and I got lots of compliments on these standout booties. The fit is pretty good, maybe bordering slightly on the smaller size but I ordered a 39 which is my usual and I wouldn't imagine needing to go up. More importantly, I wore them all day at work and had no blisters, rubbing, or uncomfortable spots. That's the sign of a well-made shoe, in my view. Totally recommend these.

Great style, but be careful
This is a great-looking bag that has garnered many compliments. People always want to touch it and are surprised when they find out that it's not metal but woven leather. A few caveats, however. First, they are hand woven and the size can vary from bag to bag, so it could be much smaller than it looks in the pictures. Secondly, it's quite fragile. I'm on my second one. The first developed a hole when the leather loops came apart. The second is now losing the fringe from the zipper handle and I have no idea why. Not sure I could recommend it for these reasons, even though it's so unique and appealing in its looks.

Great for kicking around
Wasn't familiar with this brand but they seem to be relatively good quality for the price. Pretty roomy but I think the sizing is true, it's just that they're meant to be casual and a bit loose. I bought them in grey and have been wearing them with my Paige Layne Cargos. Love the look. They will for sure be my go-to fall weekend boot. The top is floppy but that is the intended look so be prepared for that when you buy them. Definitely recommend them.

Very Comfy
As suggested, I ordered a size down from another pair of Paige jeans I own and that was definitely the right move. I may even have been able to go another size down (since the waist on the other pair is actually a bit big on me). The fabric is very soft and very stretchy. Even with the size down, I really need a belt to avoid revealing a little too much when bending down. Otherwise, they fit perfectly and are the right length (I'm 5' 7.5"). The jungle is a great soft green that goes with grey, black, lots of stuff. I totally recommend them and I'll likely be wearing them every weekend this fall!
