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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

Pretty, delicate bracelet
This is a nice, delicate bracelet. It has three places to attach the hook so it should fit anyone. My only quibble is it seems to want to lay with the crystals in but that's probably just the way I am attaching it. I hope the plating holds up.

Flattering sweatshirt
I ordered an xs, my usual size in Wildfox, and really liked the look and feel of this sweatshirt. I am 5'3" and the arms are long but they just bunch up at the wrists which adds to the look of the shirt. Wildfox sweats are kind of expensive but I haven't found a more flattering line for sweats and loungewear. For reference I am 32DDD with s 26" waist and many sweatshirts make me look bulky but not this one.

Flattering sweatpants!
It does seem a little silly to spend this much on a pair of sweat pants even on sale but I have found Wildfox sweats to be ridiculously flattering and soft, and these are no exception. They are a little long and loose on the bottom, especially for someone short like me, but they roll or bunch up nicely. They are more feminine than they appear in the photo and are drapey and soft. I ordered an xs, my usual size.

Inconsistent sizing on Add Down
I have an Add Down coat from last year that fits me perfectly in a 40, and I wanted a shorter military style coat that would keep me as warm this winter. I ordered the green in a 40 and it is noticeably tighter in the chest and shoulders compared to my other coat. I am normally a size 4 in coats so maybe the other one just ran large, but I expected them to fit the same. In looking at the photos of the model it appears the coat is a little tight in the chest and shoulders on her as well, so maybe this is how it is supposed to be. I am still trying to decide whether to order a size up. The bottom puffs out in the back too and my waist looks larger than it does in my other coat, so this one may just not be as flattering for me.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Great black distressed skinnies
I had been coveting the Alana crop in offbeat but was waiting for a sale, and unfortunately my size sold out before that. I had initially overlooked these because they are not so obviously distressed in the photo and I wanted some distressing. These are perfect--no gaping holes but enough damage to add interest. I wanted undone hems too so these fit the bill. I wanted a high rise also but a mid rise is very versatile and a good compromise, since the Alana had gaping holes. These are super soft and stretchy, not a normal denim material but they seem strong enough. I ordered a 25 and 26 and kept the 25 which is my usual size.
