Versatile quality piece
I purchased a different colour but the style is the same - bearing that in mind, I still have only positive things to say about this bag. I used this bag for a month-long holiday as a carry-on and everyday tote - it was sturdy, durable and comfortable. It has plenty of pockets for bottles and miscellaneous bits and bobs, the hardware is of a high quality and I appreciate that the bag is easy to clean with just a few wet wipes. It is a HUGE bag that fits a surprising amount so good for all busy mums or those that carry their entire life in their bag.

Exactly what I was expecting
This watch is very, very shiny, with a large face and it's quite heavy, but it's exactly what I was expecting. This watch is very yellow and stands. out. I had a colleague gawk at it and she incorrectly guessed that it was an extremely expensive watch. I was a little hesitant about ordering initially because I was concerned at how it would be packaged/sent to the other side of the world, but I was happily amused with the fact that the watch was in the Michael Kors box, in another box, in another fluff-filled ShopBop box, in another air-bag-filled shipping box :D To those wondering how it will look on, I would suggest logging onto Pinterest and scouring the endless photos of fashionable girls and their MK watches. Best of luck!

Minimal stretch
I bought this dress in XS when I normally buy dresses in a Small as Free People garments tend to run on the larger side. I selected "True to Size/As Expected" because I expected the XS to fit like a Small - which it does - HOWEVER, there is minimal stretch and I am quite busty so I probably should've gone for the Small (that would've fit like a Medium). But overall, the dress itself is very trendy, a great price and the low scoop back is delightful. The material is as thin as it appears on the model, which I like because a thick material I think would've been too dressy and prevented me from having the option to dress it down. The hemline is shorter than what I expected; I'm 160cm so all bottoms tend to fall a little lower than how it appears on models but in reality it's quite true to the picture.

Pleasantly surprised
Despite the other reviewers complaining that the top was too low I bought this top anyway for the shoulder pad detail. Not only do I really like the shoulder pad detail in person but I don't think the top is that ludicrously low cut. Granted, I always wear camisoles underneath but I actually really like that it's more low cut than your typical v neck top. I bought this top in a Small, I'm about 160cm and am a 14DD - I find normal v neck tops still give me a mono-boob look. A v neck that actually 'cuts' through my bust is something I really needed.

Trendy and Edgy
Though I selected 'larger than expected' this is what I expected as all the previous reviewers stated this. I would've normally chosen a Small but went with the XS and am glad I did. The bottom of the sweater is quite roomy - I think it would've looked nicer if it were more clingy - and care must be taken when wearing this as it's definitely something that'll easily snag. It's really lightweight so I take extra care when handling it so as not to over-stretch it. It's not an investment piece for sure and I don't expect it to last many years but I have been searching for an on-trend sheer detail top like this for a while (Alexander McQueen has done one in silk and chiffon).

Organised, Minimalistic Chic
I bought this solely for the purpose of housing my keys as I was getting sick of key scratches on every other item in my handbag. I couldn't get a good indication of size from the pictures so I drew on paper how large it would be according to the dimensions provided. I am satisfied with the product as it fits my house key, room key, large house alarm and large car key comfortably. The zip is a bit stiff which could be troublesome if the pouch is filled to the brim. Overall, it was exactly what I was expecting and serves its purpose in such a chic manner.

(I am 160cm and 48kgs - fairly petite, average shoulders, larger bust but thin arms. I ordered this sweater in Small and in 'Sawdust'). In the photos, 'Sawdust' sweater looks like it's kind of swamping the model's figure - I didn't want this look so considered getting the XS. I'm VERY relieved I listened to the other reviewers and went with a Small; it fits how I imagined the XS to fit in comparison! It falls just below my hips instead of dangling around my thighs. The arms are a little shorter than I'd like them to be but it's a minor detail that doesn't really bother me (the 'sleeves' are actually tiny cuffs, the rest of the 'sleeve' is part of the body). If I do say so myself, I look ridiculously chic in my sweater and I am happy with my purchase. This sweater is extremely light but surprisingly warm. I have already recommended this to a friend who has pounced at the sale price!
