    Promising review: "I think I own these in six colors now. They are true-to-size and so comfortable. The elastic band is not binding at all, and the rise is absolutely perfect —I HATE high-rise. I love wearing them to work. I feel almost like I have a stylish pair of PJs on all day. Normally, I would miss the front pockets, but the reduced bulk makes for a more stream-lined and comfortable fit. Please, please, don't ever get rid of these, Free People! They are the best!" —kewellethefirst

    Promising review: "I love this duster. The color, raw hem, animal print lining, and classic cuffs are fun, edgy and the surprising contradiction in fashion I love. Classic but not dated. The length is perfect hitting mid-calf, the sleeve length is long, just like I like them. I live in TX so this will be great for fall and a fun winter layering piece." —JMartenson
