Kristin W.'s Bio

I'm nuts about travel and all the weird and wacky experiences you have going places you've never been before...

I have some serious curves and honestly, this dress really flatters them. My DDs look great in the shelf bra and the v pattern of the shibori print is way slenderizing. Wear with swimsuit cups to prevent headlights. It is slightly slim fit but standard for Patagonia, which always runs a little small. A great beach dress with flip flops or evening dress with jewelry for travel.

This dress has great style, is comfortably cut, and washes beautifully. I especially like the shelf bra, which I used with a couple swimsuit cups to prevent headlights. Looks great with a belt and the black and navy can easily be dressed up with jewelry for versatility during travel.

I LOVE Dakine bags and luggage in general, however this bag is a little too simplistic for me. Its really well made and the Taos fabric is both intricate and beautiful, however, all it has is two stretchy pockets and a small clear vinyl case. I prefer Dakine's "Diva" case, which has roughly 600 pockets of various shapes and sizes. Also, the "Diva" hangs from a hook, shower curtain rod, etc. I'm keeping it to organize other stuff, but probably won't use it for cosmetics.

I love the idea of a crocheted skirt like this but he reality is not quite up to par. The sizing is super small and the slip that supposedly provides modesty coverage is ridiculously short. I plan to keep it and cut out the slip and use it as a swim cover up. However, I'd never risk wearing it without a bathing suit underneath....!!! However, the knit/crochet/whatever is really quite nice and high quality.

This "dress" is really too short to be called that, unless you are a very, very petite person. However, it has great style and shape and works perfectly as a tunic (over leggings or even jeggings) or as a swim cover up. I love the detailed crochet-like material at the back yoke and shoulders. Also, the cute is loose but not paper-bag-styled - you will still have a waistline in this dress. Unlike some Prana designs, they've allowed for us busty gals with center front gathers. Lastly the skirt portion is loose enough that you can cinch the drop waist and it doesn't look like a hooker skirt ; ) Gotta love that.

I LOVE the "Lux" fabric version of this wallet/bag but had a hard time deciding as they are all good-looking. Really this is more of a clutch than a wallet - I plan to use it as an evening bag for the cruise I'll be going on - as it's way stylish, goes with everything, and is surprisingly lightweight. As a clutch, not really a wallet, it has some credit card holders but not much else. I also like the optional, detachable wrist strap. Backcountry folks - PLEASE start posting pictures of the insides of the bags you sell so people can see pockets and other internal features. See the pics ebags dot com posts - it could only help your sales.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I am a curvy girl. I wear a size xl and a 38DD bra. Therefore, I 'm always on the lookout for dresses that *skim* over my shape without me feeling like I'm wearing either a sausage casing or a potato sack (referenced in the review below). I found this dress to be forgiving, yet totally accented my bigger bust and hips and smaller waistline. Also, I love the side gathers! It's a unique style and can be dressed up or down = awesome for travel. I took the grey print version on a trip to S. America for a month and it washed up beautifully even under the not-so-tender mercies of commercial washing machines. Also, the solid colors and neckline shape work awesome with jewelry for evening. Highly recommended.

No only does this dress fit well (I'm 5'6" and curvier than most) because it's long and accents the waist on those like me, I LOVE the fact that the stitching on the bottom makes it so you can custom hem it with a pair of sharp scissors *that's right, you just cut it off right next to line of stitching at the length you want*. That means that the skirt comes long (thank God!) for those of us who need it but can easily be modified for more petite girls. Also, it is a great travel dress as you can easily pair it with flip flops for day or put some awesome, funky statement necklace with it for evening. Sooooo taking it to the Caribbean with me in December (the dark green one) for Christmas!

This sweater is way more artful and detailed than the picture make it look. Its shades of grey blue are enhanced by the nubbly texture of the yarn used to make it. While I would have loved to see a belt sold with it (us curvy girls need a waistline, after all), it works over a fitted shirt because it naturally falls open enough to view my waistline. LOVE the fringe - it's not too much but adds a great style detail. Oh, and it's super soft and not heavy. Totally worth the sale price.

I now have three colors in this - I couldn't help myself. The knit fabric is comfy and the embroidery is intricate and high quality. The built-in bra is good even for big up top girls like me, but with the adjustable straps doesn't have to be revealing. The length is just above he knee on me, I'm 5 '6". I can't even describe how cute it is on. With the sale price this is an unbeatable deal.

I'm really liking this bag. The "lux" fabric is really quite detailed and beautiful, without being overwhelming (and it matches everything). The pockets inside are big enough for a smart phone, which is rare. Also, the outside zip pocket is huge, which is awesome and also a rarity. Back country - please post picks of the inside of the bags/luggage you sell! It would help a bunch and probably prevent some returns!!!

I have both colors of this jacket and love them. There is great stitching details on this piece that you can't see in the picture. It's the weight of a standard fleece jacket and is a good deal for the sale price. Very good also for travel as you can dress it up over a skirt/dress or put it over jeans just as easily. As with all prana stiff, it way soft. I Think it depends on your body type, but I wear a 38D and the xl fits perfectly.

I had never purchased any overland products before, but when I got this bag (and the matching wallet) I was really impressed with the quality. Also the organizational pockets, while small, do the job to organize things like ChapStick and a Bluetooth. I like that the strap is adjustable as well.

I had never purchased any Overland products before this wallet, and I have to say that the quality of his wallet (and the other purse and bag that goes with it) is fantastic. It looks like it could survive a hurricane. Also the strap is not only removable but also adjustable so you can use it like a clutch with your phone inside.
