Madewell Utility Zip Pants
Time and time again I am impressed by Madewell. I purchased the green 'utility zip pants' and they are very high quality but they don't bust the wallet. The fabric, 92% cotton and 8 % elastane is extremely durable and soft. The length, is as expected and the zippers offer outfit versatility. Oxfords or ankle booties? I did have one problem with these pants. Even though I bought a size 0 Madewell's utility zip pants proved to be too baggy.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Last month I read an article in Vogue about these matte tights. Convinced by their journalistic integrity I chose to purchase Falke's Pure Matt 100 Tights. I am about 5'3 and 110 lbs so I chose the smallest size. The fit was great and the color was just what I was looking for (grayish-purple). However, when I removed the tights after wearing them all day I noticed that my legs were covered in grey stripes. I've never experienced this problem with any other Falke items I've purchased in the past. Strange? In any case, I am disappointed about the demarcations these tights leave on my legs, though it is likely that I will run them through the wash another couple of times to ensure my ability to wear them again and again.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected
