Nice hoodie, but
I was in search of a great fleece hoodie, and I purchased two Freecity zip hoodies. Everything seems to be French terry these days, so I reluctantly splurged on an item of clothing for which I normally wouldn't spend more than $100. The hoodies are very comfy, and after wearing and washing many, many times, I can say that they have held up quite well. However, as other reviewers have noted, Freecity just re-branded an American Apparel hoodie. So you're essentially paying an extra $100 for the Freecity logo. Knowing that, I won't purchase this hoodie in any other colors. I'd feel too foolish.

Cute flats
These are high quality flats. In terms of style, they're definitely a departure from a typical ballet flat, but their quirkiness is quite charming. I am a true size 9, so I initially ordered the 39. My toes were pushed up against the edge of the shoe, and overall, they felt quite tight. I ordered the next size up -- a 39.5 -- and the fit was perfect. For reference, I do own another pair of Rag & Bone shoes, and the 39 in that style fit just fine. I would recommend sizing up a half size for the Windsor Ballet Flats.

Wait for it to go on sale
Over the years, I've become less and less impressed with the quality and fit of Joie clothes. I ended up keeping this top because the fit was nice (TTS), and the cotton seemed to be a decent quality. Even after wearing it twice, I was still moderately pleased with the purchase. However, after washing the garment once, I've noticed that it has started to pill horribly on the sides and the front. It really looks shabby even though I followed the care instructions to the letter :-( I'd recommend waiting for this top to go on sale before buying it. It's not worth the $100 price tag.

Fit is not quite right
I own a few Tucker blouses in a couple of styles, and I am familiar with the fact that they are typically wide and slightly short. This silhouette is not usually a problem for me. The long sleeve tie blouse, however, was even shorter than usual (I couldn't tuck it in), wide to the point of being unflattering, and a bit low-cut for my tastes. It didn't fit me at all like the model. I wear a size 4 in blouses, and the size S I ordered in this particular blouse was definitely too big. If it weren't so short, I definitely would have exchanged it for an XS. On the positive side, the print is quite nice (picture is true to actual color), and the silk is the same quality as other Tucker blouses.
