For showing off shapely legs
These are the kind of shorts that require you to look at yourself in a three way mirror and be honest about how the backs of your thighs look (dimpling, cellulite?) and the overall appearance of your legs. These super-short shorts also look best when you balance the proportion with a seemingly modest top. My legs are my best feature (I will never be able to wear a crop top and show my midriff -- sigh) so of course short-shorts and minis are my jam. If you're a runner or someone with lean and long legs this will definitely be for you.

Love the jkt but you can't remove hood
I should have double checked whether or not the hood could be removed and it's why I only gave it 4 stars. Other than that, this jacket is super warm, but not heavy or overwhelming in a way that adds the appearance of puff or weight. I can wear a chunky cashmere underneath and not feel restricted (but I do feel SUPER WARM!) This is a HIGH QUALITY parka. I bought it during the 25% off last fall. If you need a removable hood, check out the other CG parkas.

AMAZING -- quality, tailoring, style!
I wear a size 28 in most denim and after a lot of research decided on a 42. These pants offer a perfect slouch and hang off my hips just enough for me to wear a belt -- but no bother, I bought these to replace a similar pair of olive pants I could not stop wearing (of course not in quality or $$ but cut & styling, sure). It was time for a new pair (you know how some clothes are just reminders the past?) and at this 70%-off price -- WHY NOT???????? And then the additional 25% offered during post-holidays? HELLO!!!! I took these out of the box (shopping the Designer Boutique is like ordering from NAP -- LOVED IT!) and out of the garment bag and couldn't believe the weight and texture of the material. Everything was just SU-PERB. Well what would you expect from DSquared2? I'm so glad I bought these. I was so happy, I decided to get another 70% pair (Cool Girl jeans) -- but in a 40. AND I wore them the next day. I can't stop stalking D2 products. I'm officially addicted.

Must buy at sale price
Who pays $400 for a jean jacket? I don't -- so glad these were on sale AND the 20% code was available! Great wash, a bit oversized on the fit (it's boyfriend style) AND it has a wool liner vest!!!! I absolutely love it. I opened the package up and wore it the rest of the day. As a matter of fact I'm wearing it now because it's warm and cozy.

These boots R amazing!! (go up sz in RB)
I ordered up a size (which is why I have "as expected"). Know this first. I have size 10 feet and can usually wear a 40 but in R&B I have to go up to a 41. That said, these boots are AMAZING!! The shaft is looser than other boots (I have lean legs) so they're not going to work under flared jeans (you'll notice the tops of the boots). They still look good with knee-length skirts. Feels like I'm walking on cushiony rubber, I can't believe it's a wooden heel and leather soles! Can't beat the quality, and on sale, too!!!!

Price can't be beat
I was looking at the NSF jeans... tempted to buy my own pair. Then I realized, "I have a pair of Blanks at a fraction of the cost and they look just the same." Simple, torn-up jeans. Why paid $300??? I wear 28s in nearly jeans and went with my usual size. These are meant to be worn tight, so just go with your regular size and ease into the baggy style.

Acid-bright color & great for walking!
I wanted these shoes last year in either the flourescent yellow or pink. I missed the boat and when I saw these in red (on sale!) I had to get them. Great choice! I read the reviews about how these shoes made buyers' feet "look long." But since I wear size 10 shoes, what does it matter to me? Take a look at the silhouette of the show, simple straps across the top, back-zip strap -- not much else going on so of course the length of the shoe will be more prominent. Are these shoes comfy? Yes. Cute? Yes. I walked up and down the Vegas strip during the day in these shoes, in preparation for dancing all night in non-cushioned heels. Only reason I didn't give these shoes 5 stars is because the leather was so delicate at the toe (or I'm such a rough walker) that a bit of the leather had already scratched off. So glad I got these shoes on sale!!!

Finally something that works
I pulled this out of the package thinking, "really?" REALLY! I need to buy more, this is so nice. If you're looking to create a smoother silhouette underneath your body-con dresses or your form-fitting tees tucked inside your tight denim skirts, then this is it. If you're trying to shave off a size or two then this is not what you need (only cardio + carb-free will do that). My tummy is hardly flat, and this particular Spanx tones down an otherwise rounded mid-section profile. I'd love to have more F&F to use for this. I bought the nude and definitely need the black -- at least two, in fact.

Amazing.
I was hesitant to buy these, but I've been hurting for a pair of leather pants really bad (I have to have a pair of Currents). I have another pair of Joe's 28s and they were very snug -- and those are denim (trouser) jeans. But I did my research and read the reviews so I figured just stick with my usual jeans size (28). I was a bit scared when I opened the box and when I showed them to my (larger-sized) coworker, the first thing that came out of her mouth was, "are your sure those will fit?" I told her there are some things she should keep to herself. So when I came home and those pants felt so touchy and pliant and I slinked right into them, I jdidn't keep it to myself, and totally texted said coworker to let her know "the size 28 jeans fit!" and rub it in real good. Those are a bad-a** pair of leather jeans! And that gorgeous dark red color. Totally worth the money (and on sale!). Can't wait to buy another pair of leather pants/jeans. These jeans should totally fit snug.

Chic boots made for walking
Sturdy, stylish boots. If you're a city girl who gets around town walking and catching trains and buses, this is a great boot. It's high enough where most knee length skirts will meet and/or cover the top of the boot (if that's your thing, I like clean lines and don't like large breaks unless I'm wearing a mini and even then my boots will be ankle or bootie-style). Please also note that the boot is high enough that it bends back at the back of the knee. The shaft is split at the back of the knee with an elastic inset; if you think you will be bothered by having to break in the back of the boot at the knee, don't get them. These boots hit directly at the bottom of the knee -- and I have long legs. I did not find the shaft too tight either, and I'm a runner with toned, muscular calves. Also keep in mind the elastic inset, so unless you do crazy-heavy lifts with your legs, you shouldn't have a problem in my opinion. I plan on wearing these boots mostly with skirts and dresses.
