  1. NOT a love! I posted this as a vent, but it's also sort of a review.

    Today I received the black wool tuxedo pants (BD286), and they are beyond huge! I ordered a 00, and they are at least TWO (and maybe THREE) sizes too large.

    I still have size 00 pants from last year, and they are fine, so it is not me losing weight. This is vanity sizing that is way out of control.

  2. @MmeJacqueline Sorry to hear this. I ordered the tuxedo pants in ivory and they're supposedly coming tomorrow. I'm usually a size 2. Hoping the ivory are sized differently.

    1. @Mary G. Perhaps the ivory will fit differently. That has happened to me before where a different color is either smaller or larger. You never know....

    2. @MmeJacqueline The ivory tuxedo pants arrived and fit me pretty much as usual, though the wool is incredibly thin. How is it that they can line pants and any underwear other than beige STILL shows through? I saw your review online and will add my own since there seems to be a big difference in sizing between the two colors. I will probably keep them unless Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren release lined ivory flannel pants.

  3. Sézane has a three piece grey suit in their winter lookbook. The length is a bit too long, but overall looks smart.

  4. Received my $25 JC & Madewell bday rewards. Along with Sephora's bday gift, I really appreciate how steadfast these $25 rewards have been. Banana Republic cut back their bday reward the past couple of years and so far this year, nothing.

    Tory Burch sent me a code for $50 off $200 and I hope to redeem it as a fairly new TV shopper.
