This is a beautiful, warm sweater jacket. The colors are muted and classic, so it is appropriate for work as well as for casual wear. I worried that it might be rough or itchy, but it is not. Runs true to size (bought a medium and it's a true size 8-10). I'd buy other colors if they had them.

This is a lovely shirt. There is nothing flashy about it--it is just very basic, but the material is heavy and soft, with a slight sheen that makes it classy and slightly dressy. It feels wonderful on, both from the substantial weight of it and the silky feel of the fabric (love that rayon!)
Regarding size: I wear a 14/16 and usually buy XL, so I went with it on this blouse too. I could have got a Large, I think, if I wanted it to fit a little closer as in the photo, but I am also not as slim as the model! (busty, 170 pounds) The XL on me is a bit too long in the sleeves (but I cuffed them), and does not fit as close to the body as the photo, but it also is not sloppy or obviously too big. It's a nice looser fit and does not cling anywhere.

These are cute as the dickens but a bit on the small side. I have fairly big hands for a woman but fit most gloves, These are a little skimpy in the room department to the point where I'd give them to a young teen if I still had one. But they DO fit The wool is a bit on the scratchy side as well, but I don't mind that too much, and it tends to soften up with wear.
