Amazing quality denim, great flares
have just started venturing into flares. I love the idea but I'm petite (5'1"), so they have to be just right. This is only my second pair of R13...the first were crossover which I did NOT like, but the denim was lovely. These are all over great. I can only describe these as "Kate Moss flares"...they look as though you found them in a vintage shop..they have the fraying that stilettos give to flares, they are super soft and just look...cool. I am usually a 24 and a 24 in these fits comfortably, but of course will need crazy hemming, so I will have to find a genius to save the fraying. Only four stars because, while awesome, the retail price is FAR too high especially given the complex alterations anyone under 5'10" will need. I bought on serious sale and would not pay $600 for these - $300-$350 maybe, including the alteration.

Large and unflattering
Even the smallest size is loose in the waist, and overall the harem effect just doesn't seem to work with this fabric.

Not for the busty
I'm very small but a D-cup and this is just not sleek and flattering like it looks in the photos. It makes me look chunky, and I'm under 100 pounds. I think taller, less busty women might appreciate.

A classic
I have these in black and wear them constantly. Comfy (short break-in period) and go with lots of outfits. I will say that the black ones have shown wear quite quickly, but I still thought getting the grey was a good move. It's a nice versatile color. I know people say these run huge, but I am a 6-6.5 and the 6 is snug (it will stretch a LOT, I know). So at most they run 1/2 size large, but I'd try your usual size as well.

Can't walk in these
They LOOK really cute on, but there is no grip to straps or sole, so you'll constantly be sliding backwards out of them, like moonwalking. This makes them terribly uncomfortable. My husband accidentally threw away the shoebox or I would have returned them; now I am stuck with slippers only good for walking around the house. If you have a small house.

Giant tent-like schmatte
"Schmatte" was my husband's word and he's right. The cut out shoulders are very cute as are the slim, bunchy sleeves, but the sweater itself is hugely A-line - it bells out like a tent. It's possible that someone small-busted could wear this over leggings and it'd be cute - otherwise I would only advise as maternity wear (it would be great for this and get you close to nine months). I got the smallest size and it still didn't work.

Excess fabric on top
This dress is surprisingly cute -and feels nice- for the price point. Unfortunately there's extra fabric above the waist which creates a "poochy" look. I'm not sure who could wear this except possibly someone very long-waisted. The waistline is cute and the skirt has a nice flip to it. I was sad to send it back.

Glitter Birks
These are Birkenstocks. They are awesomely comfortable. These particular ones are sold as "pebbled silver". They are not. They are GLITTER - they look like the kids' glitter Birks. So if you like glitter, this is your Birkenstock. I almost kept them for Burning Man, which is the only place most adults would wear these.

Ginormous
I bought the smallest size and I could live in these - if I had four pegs and a stake to make a tent. Impossible to even tell what they would look like on whomever they are cut for - I am guessing Paul Bunyan? The fabric feels cheap as well. FYI, I am 5'1" and around 98, so small, but not so small that I should be able to move all my belongings into my pants.

Adorable, lightweight cardi, pretty blue
Very simple, very thin cardi - probably won't last very long (low price though), but extremely flattering on. The XS fits a tiny person, it's very soft, and the pale blue is really flattering - quite a bit lighter than the photo. I would have bought multiples if I'd known how verstaile this piece would be.
