    This jacket is just what I needed for between-seasons weather. It is extremely comfortable and nicely made and I like the color. I do wish the pockets did not include the metal loop that seem to be a standard of cargo design. To get around this I tucked the fabric tabs under in order to be able to slip my hands into the pockets. The waist feels a bit high as my torso is a little longer than most. I usually wear a size 6 so I ordered the small. If you like something a little more form-fitting and your proportions are average I'd suggest a size smaller for a more blazer-like effect. I can pop on a sweater so I'm happy with the larger size.

    I bought this for myself a month ago to wear as a camisole in my corporate, relatively conservative, business-casual environment. It was wrinkled and the yarns are poor-quality such that it does not iron nor wash well. Furthermore, there were slubs and loose threads as well as a tiny hole in the chest underneath the trim.

    I normally wear a size 4-6 in Gap (which is often sized larger than many other companies) and would have expected the medium to fit. It fit like a Gap size 10-12. Because of the too-largeness, the pointelle is also awkwardly placed such that you have to wear a bra that will not show.

    If I am able to find the packaging material, I will try to return this unfortunate buy. Not a good value and it does not look like it would last through many wearings/washings.

    • Cons: Poor Quality, Stretches Out Quickly
    • Describe Yourself: Practical, Stylish

    These cropped pants are nicely made with smooth, lightweight fabric. I bought them in white for summer wear, and they're perfect with a tee/tank or a nice jacket or sweater.

    I especially like the slim fit.
