Awkward fit and fabric.
This skirt and matching top looked SO GOOD on the model, but did not work for me AT ALL. I own a skirt by Tibi in a similar silhouette in a dark green sateen fabric, and it's gorgeous and flattering. I thought this would be great for spring, but it looked horrible. I'm 5'2", 105-108lbs. and the size 0 skirt (same size as my other Tibi skirt) was too tight in the waist but also looked dumpy. I sent the skirt and top back!
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Nice basic, but didn't fit.
I wanted to love this dress, but the fit was off. I'm 5'2", 105-108lbs., 32C bust, and I often find that Vince runs a little large on me. I ordered the 00, but it was just a little too tight in the bust to the point it flattened me oddly, and it was shorter than I'd like for work. I then ordered the 0, but it was too large and I didn't think it was worth tailoring.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Good basic, but runs large.
I ordered this dress in black, and while it's what you'd expect from a basic Splendid dress, I sent it back. First, I think it runs large. I'm 5'2", 105 lbs with some curves and I ordered the XS. I expected I'd need to get it hemmed, but I would have had to cut about a FOOT off the bottom, and even then, there was a ton of excess fabric from the waistline down. It's cut well up top but I was worried that it would look strange even with alterations. If you're tall, it would work great! Second, while it's a good basic, I think you can find something similar/better for cheaper, or at least wait until it goes on sale. If you're very tall or need it now, go ahead and order; otherwise, wait or look elsewhere!

The perfect swimsuit!
This swimsuit is perfection and I swear would flatter anyone. I'm hard to fit, because I'm very petite (XS/0/2) but wear a "C" cup. I ordered this in P/C and it fits like a glove. It looks simple, but it is a super flattering cut and color that will make you stand out on the beach. My only complaint is that I wish it had removable padding in the cups; if you're larger up top, you may want to get cups sewn in for extra coverage. But, overall, it's perfect!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Gorgeous!
I ordered these shoes during the recent Thanksgiving promotion. I won't wear them until the spring, but they're so awesome that I had to have them. The heel is high and flattering, but since it's a little chunky (but not too chunky!) the shoes are comfortable and easy to walk in. The colors pop but I think this shoe will still be a good spring/summer neutral.

Beautiful, but wasn't flattering on me
I wanted to love this dress. It's beautifully constructed, with high quality fabric. The top fits very nicely, and the fabric flows on a woman's body nicely. But, for me, it just wasn't flattering. I'm 5'2" and very petite, and while the XS technically fit, the extra fabric billowing around me made me look pregnant. Actually, if you are pregnant, this dress would look amazing. I tried it with a belt, which looked good on my body, but didn't look quite right with the beading. I returned it. If you're taller or looking to hide something around your midsection, though, you should order it!

Gorgeous but run huge!
These pants are a gorgeous fabric that could be dressed up or down, but you'll definitely want to size down at least one size, if not two. I'm a 00/0 or 24/25, so I ordered the 32 thinking it would fit or could possibly be taken in a little bit in the hips if needed. The pants were gigantic, way too large to get tailored. I had to send them back.

Great basic with a twist!
This is a great basic Equipment blouse, with a fun twist in the sleeves! It's stylish enough for a night out, but you can add a blazer or cardigan for work. I plan to get a lot of wear out of it. I think it runs a little slimmer than other Equipment blouses, though it fits true to size compared to other brands.

Good fit, bad print
As someone who owns half a dozen Equipment blouses, I was so sure I would love this one, too. The fit is great, but I hated the print (and I love leopard print). It's a slim cut, so if you're petite, you may prefer it to the normal Equipment blouse cut. However, I thought the leopard print was a little too cartoonish, not at all a sophisticated, classic leopard. I wish it had been better, but I had to return it.

Awesome, esp. for thinner ankles!
I LOVE these boots! I love the rugged boots that are so popular right now, but as a very petite woman, I often feel like they don't suit my body or look. These are great, however, because they give you that rugged, downtown look but are truly flattering to a woman's foot and don't look too manly. The heel gives you just enough height, but they are so comfortable and will be great for walking around the city. I have very thin ankles and heels, and it's difficult to find boots that fit, but these fit perfectly with a normal sock. I can slide them on without undoing the buckle but they aren't loose and flapping. I'm normally size 6.5, sometimes 6, and the 6.5 fits like a glove. I'm contemplating ordering the brown, too!
