Does exactly what it says it will
Is invisible and really comfortable. I wish CK didn't have to splash everything with logos or I'd wear their undies more: I can't walk around feeling like Marky Mark.

LOVE the shoes - toe caps scratch easily
I love these and have gotten so many compliments on them. The snakeskin in black is subtle and the shape is just right - a loafer with a little substance. They are comfortable with just a little bit of wearing in needed at the heels. The cap toe isn't as shiny as I had feared & the overall effect is subtle. However, the cap toes did scratch on first wearing, pretty badly - the shoes still look good but you need to be OK with them not remaining perfect. I would still buy these again in another color (the gold looks too bright). I am usually between a 6 and 6 1/2: took a 6 1/2 and they fit perfectly.

Not assorted colors: two ugly colors
I use these types of hair ties a lot - they are cute and gentle on the hair, and you can jam 'em on your wrists as well. However, when I see "assorted colors", I think it means more than TWO colors. These are all identical purple and yellow, possible the two most unwearable colors ever. I should have returned these, and from now on will buy at my local beauty store, where I can choose the colors.

Useful cami
This is a good piece for use under tops that show too much cleavage or if, like me, you need to unbutton your blouses fairly low to accommodate your bust. It's not in the slightest a support piece and if you're endowed you'll wear a bra with it, but it covers up that little "space" nicely without adding bulk.

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!

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.
