Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 130 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I was looking forward to receiving these black leggings because I like to walk outdoors and at night, and I was looking for the warmth that they claim to provide. They're constructed with excellent quality, however, the sizing may run large for people. The outside "layer" feels like a soft cotton, while the inside layer has silver, dotted reflective material throughout the entire leggings. It's not exactly a "layer," rather it's the outside and the inside of the actual material. If you buy them too large, they'll sag behind the knees and around the ankles, which is what happened to me, and they won't keep you warm because of the bunching of the material. However, if I had purchased the correct size, these would've been great because I wore them outside today in 30 degree temps in the Boston area and I was toasty warm.
For reference to help you decide on sizing: I'm 5'7" tall and I weigh 130 lbs, and I have an athletic-type body shape. According to the chart provided by Columbia, I should fit nicely into the size Medium, however, I was only in them for a few minutes before I realized they were sagging at the knees and falling off of my hips. It's so annoying when you have to keep tugging at them to keep them up and it's one of my biggest pet peeves when buying leggings, especially when they're $50 a pair. When I first put them on, they felt great, but as soon as I was in and out of the car and walking a short distance, that's when they seemed to really lose their shape. They do come in a pre-packaged box with a sizing chart on it, but I threw it out the minute I first tried them on. I like them so much that I'll probably search around for the size Small at a sale price.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 138 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I love this dress for many reasons. It's made of a rayon type material that flows beautifully. I only tried it on and fell in love with it. I can't say much about how it will wash up, but I'll hand wash and hang to dry. For reference I'm a 34D bra size and I'm 5' 7 and weigh between 135 and 140 pounds and I ordered the size Small. It fit perfectly, with room to spare. One of the great features of this dress is that it has adjustable spaghetti straps that can be adjusted just like a bra, allowing for the perfect fit. Another great thing about this dress is that the armholes are a perfect size, not too tight and not so large that they hang open all the way down to your waist so your bra shows. I ordered the flowered white pattern and I decided to return that one and exchange it for the ink blue one because the white just didn't look good against my pure white skin. I think it would look fabulous on someone with a tan or bronze skin tone. I was hesitant to order this dress because I'm not a huge fan of the handkerchief hem but once I tried it on, I realized that those points at the bottom of the dress are perfectly positioned actually adding to the style of the dress. If you're looking for a go-to dress, one that takes no effort to look great, this is a perfect option. Add some silver jewelry and some strappy sandals or even metallic flip flops and you have yourself an outfit for the beach, BBQ, stroll through town or even dinner out. For the price of this dress, it's a great value because you can get so much wear out of it. I'd recommend it to my friends and anyone looking for an effortless dress that can be worn out on the town or simply as a cover up at the beach. I'm looking forward to receiving the darker blue one!

This great skirt will be a staple in my summer picks. It's made of a jersey material that seems to flow effortlessly. It's not stiff at all. Some reviewers commented on the dislike of the seams, but I find them to give the skirt a great shape and don't feel that they're noticeable at all. For reference, I ordered the purple size Small because that was the only small at the time. I'm 5'7

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this top so much! It's the perfect weight, made from a very small waffle material, not stiff at all, but substantial enough that you can wear it a few times before washing as it keeps its shape perfectly. The length is spot on as well, hitting a few inches below your butt. For reference, I'm 5'7" and I weigh 135 and I purchased the size Medium. I probably could've gone with the size Small, but I usually wear tank tops underneath my fall and winter clothing so I wanted to have the room to do that. The top doesn't cling to you, rather it falls nicely and the fabric is soft and comfortable. The tie around the neck can be worn loose or tied tight making it look like a very attractive bunched up turtleneck. I don't usually purchase multiples, but after really liking the Ivory and receiving many compliments on it, I bought the blue color. Then today when I checked the item, the cranberry was back in stock so I purchased that one too. I wear a lot of leggings and skinny jeans and these tops look great paired with a pair of Uggs or tall leather boots. The top has the thumb holes as well, which is great for cooler weather and when you want to wear your sleeves all the way down. There's a really nice, long cuff on the sleeves, probably about 5" and that just adds to the fit of the sleeves, especially if you want to push them up. Having the cuff allows them to stay up when you want to wear it that way. I'd say this is a very versatile top and I know I'll get a ton of wear out of them because the quality is excellent. For me, they're an investment in my wardrobe because they're so slimming and I love to dress nicely but also be comfy! I'd recommend this top to anyone!
