Too big
This dress definitely runs large. I ordered a small, my usual size, and the upper body was very low cut, which means no bra (which I need) or you have to wear a tank underneath which would ruin the look. It was also very baggy, and the top was unflattering on my bust. Might work for someone tall and flat-chested.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Flattering cutoffs!
I was initially not sure about these--I am in good shape but over 40 so worried they might be too short for good taste. I ordered a 25, my usual size. They fit great, just a little loose and low in the waist. They cut down low enough in the back to not be cheeky, and they cover the little bulge I have at the top of my inner thigh. They do cut higher on the outer thigh so if you have a bulge there these might not work. It's not too high though. I want a white pair next.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute dress!
I bought this on sale to wear next summer in a small, my usual size. It fit as it should, except the armholes are a little big--I will need to wear a bandeau underneath it. The colors are lovely and bright and it is very soft.

Didn't work out for me
This dress is cut very low--it is too long in the straps even fully adjusted upwards. It also was not very flattering otherwise so not worth the alteration. I did not realize that the wings on the side went all the way up the dress--it would have been better if they only went up the skirt. It was also very big and blousy on me--an xs might have been better. The fabric was lovely though.

Great boots!
I was so excited to snag these at 25% off. I really hope they have longevity because they were still expensive! I got the Londra which is basically gray, not a grayish taupe as I thought it would be but still fine by me. I ordered size 8 as I am generally an 8 to 8.5 and I heard they ran big. I was almost wondering if I should have gotten a 7.5 because the heel slips a little but that may have been too small. I am 5'3", with small calves but larger thighs and they work great, I just needed to loosen the tie a little because they come up so high on a bigger area for me. The leather is so soft I am worried about ruining it with protectant but I may have to spray them anyway to be practical in my climate. I was hoping I wouldn't love them but I do!

Best white jeans ever
I have never owned a pair of white jeans before because I usually do not find them flattering, but that doesn't stop me from trying. I am 5'3", size 25, but my thighs are muscular and measure 21 inches. White jeans usually make them look bigger. I wanted a pair with some distressing to break up all that whiteness but nothing in the thigh area because I get bulges. I already own a black pair which I believe is the same style so I had high hopes for these, and they did not disappoint. They are flattering, slimming, the perfect length for me and comfortable. I can wear them with winter whites now, and into the spring.

Flattering blazer
I have been looking for a nice, inexpensive black blazer for some time and I have finally found it. With my lifestyle it is not something I will wear too often, which is why price was important, but it will be nice to have around for certain occasions. I am 5'3 and ordered a 4, my usual size, and it fit very well, no alterations needed. I have short arms and the sleeves were a nice length for me, so this may not be good for someone significantly taller. I am happy to have this in my closet.

Pretty, looks more expensive than it is
This is a pretty necklace, is as pictured. I hope the plating holds up. I bought some RM earrings with the same plating and had a reaction, I do have a slight nickel allergy and I assume this necklace also has nickel in it, so if you have a strong allergy that might be something to consider. I received compliments wearing it.

Pretty but crawler part is tricky
This set is pretty but I did have some trouble with the crawler side falling down. I did pinch it onto my ear but maybe my ear just doesn't have enough of a ridge to hold it in place. I'm not sure what the content is of 10k gold but I suspect there is some nickel in there because I can only wear these for a day because my ears get a little inflamed. I was excited about them and wore them two days in a row which was a mistake, so I will just have to remember to take a break between wearings.

Snug but gorgeous
I ordered this dress in a 2 and 4. The 4 fit comfortably through the chest and rib cage area but was too loose in the waist and a little wide in the shoulders. It was also about an inch longer than the 2, and since I am 5'3" I appreciate the shorter length of the 2. The 2 was very snug on me through the chest and especially the lower part of the rib cage but fit so much better everywhere else. I considered keeping the 4 and getting it altered but the dress has delicate topstitching at every seam which I am sure could not be preserved with alteration, and I'm sure alterations on the waist and length would be very expensive, adding cost to an already expensive dress. I am 36"/26" for reference. That said, the dress is very strong and is like a corset, and does not look stretched or misshapen even though it is a bit snug. It is so flattering, that I will suffer and just not take too deep of a breath or slouch. Keeping the 2.
