Sweet and Lovely
I ordered this tank in "neon orange," but "sherbert" would have been a more fitting description of the soft, pastel color. It is so "Springy" and gorgeous. I love the cut -- though it seems to be at least one size larger than what the tag suggests -- and I ordered it to pair with the Tibi cheetah shorts with which the top was originally pictured. That specific look really works, but beyond just that one outfit, this tank is going to pair beautifully with everything from white jeans to sheer, wide-leg pants and anything pleated. For the quality, fit, and on-trend color, the price seems like a steal!

FABULOUS!
Yes, pricey, but after trying it on, this is money well spent. This dress has the most amazing fit -- which I find to be true for almost every Kimberly Ovitz dress I own -- and the look is definitely "designer." The black base is splashed with muted reds and oranges, and the short in front, long in back is a trend I was avoiding, but after trying on this dress, am totally on-board with. But this dress' star quality is the back which is essentially open, save for a single vertical strap and another single horizontal strap, which intersect one another at the low back. To make this dress much more wearable, I put a black Cosabella cami (see review) underneath, but I'll definitely try it without the cami for a sexy date night. The cut around the bust is exposing -- the sides of the dress fit right at the sides of my breasts so some double-sided tape will likely be necessary without a cami or bra underneath. I love this dress; my favorite purchase of the season so far!

Adorable Fit, but...
I wish the first reviewer had posted her review of this dress before I ordered because I probably would have, at least, hesitated ordering. What I love about this dress are the top layers of ruffles (supposedly "silk," but if so, it's the roughest silk I've ever touched), the sweet polka dot pattern, and the fit which can only be described as totally adorable. This season is full of fitted maxi dresses and bodycon mini-dresses so this is a very fun deviation from that norm. The major drawback is the bottom layer that not only looks like, but literally feels like canvas. I assume the canvas is going to wrinkle like mad which will only be problematic if the "silk" ruffles wrinkle, too. If both layers wrinkle, the dress will look messy. Thus, I completely understand why the first reviewer chose the word "cheap" to describe this dress. However, when on, it looks much more expensive and well-made. I'm going to have to think on this one for a few days. Might keep; might return.

Cosabella Always Does It Just Right!
I own several items of lingerie from Cosabella and while they don't wear as well as you would expect for items at this price point, the fit is incomparable to most every other intimate brand. Cosabella's cotton -- all of their fabrics -- are so soft -- and I love how this particular cami fits like a second skin, but stays put. I absolutely hate the "roll-up" factor of fitted tanks and camis so if I can find a brand that stays where I want it to, it's worth paying a bit more to keep it in place. I ordered this to wear under the almost-backless Kimerbly Ovitz dress (see review) and it is a perfect combination.

The Epitome of Luxury
I purchased an Olcay Gulsen skirt and tank in the same silk material of this dress last Fall and I wore the skirt so many times so despite the cost of the dress, I knew it would be a great investment piece. This designer does "timeless" so well and if you buy an item that is a solid color, like this dress, it will surely wear beautifully across many years. I ordered this dress to wear to a cocktail party. I've only tried it on, but it fits like a glove (I'm 5'10, 144 lbs, 34C, 27.5" waist; I ordered a large), and the color is sumptious. It's slightly "peachier" in-person than in the photo, but it's just as gorgeous against my pale skin as it is against the more olive tone complexion of the photo model. Without question the slits on this dress are way too high (so 4, not five stars) so this is going to the tailor to add two inches of closure to each slit. I'm pairing with nude Jimmy Choo heels. I can already tell this dress is going to be in heavy rotation in my spring/summer wardrobe

More, More, More
With two other silk button-downs by this brand, this blouse was an easy purchase. I love anything black and white and the stars are a fun break from the more traditional stripes or polka dots. I'm pairing this with the ALC shorts I just got (see review) and then with many more pieces like skinny jeans and tailored black shorts. Equipment is great quality and killer style. For what you get in terms of versatility and quality, the price is very reasonable. Love these blouses!

Wow!
Despite the glowing reviews, I was skeptical of this cami, but I'm so glad I tried it. I ordered it in nude and it is just what I was looking for as the ideal bottom layer for a sheer top. Because it is so sheer -- nipple would easily be visible through the cami and a sheer top -- I'm adding a nude bra under the cami; I've already tried it and it looks terrific. I ordered a medium and the cups fit perfectly (I'm a 34C) and it's fitted, but not so much so that it's going to roll-up. I can't say enough positive things. This is a very simple and sexy piece, but it's going to get a lot of wear. I want to order in black and white, too.

Thicker, Bigger, and Pinker... But Good!
I ordered a large because I wanted the cups to fit my breasts and the length to reach my bikini line. The cups fit and sit perfectly (I'm a 34C), and the length hits perfectly (I'm 5'10), but in general the camisole is looser than it should be as a second-skin layer. The material is thick enough (not at all sheer except ever so slightly in the cups) that it could genuinely be worn as a stand-alone tank. And "Ice Pink" makes me think "so barely pink it almost looks white," but be aware that this is MUCH pinker in-person. Still, it's a keeper because, in general, Cosabella's versatility and luxurious feel make their items something you're willing to work with in order to wear it. It's so soft!

J Brand Perfection
Nothing much more to say about any J Brand denim purchase other than these are another superb pair. These are incredibly dark -- which gives them that slightly dressier look -- and I love the barely there wrinkling around the zipper and pockets, but when it comes to J's, it's really all about fit and it doesn't get any better than these.

No... No... No, No.
I love Kimberly Ovitz, in particular the line's dresses, but this one was too short, too green (it's a bright green and black in-person when it looks black on charcoal black/perhaps very mossy green in the photo), and far too wintery for a late February purchase, especially considering the price point. Unfortunately, a rare return for me, but probably a fantastic buy for a petite girl who loves green!
