- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
- Fit: Runs large
I bought this hoodie as a gift for someone and some feedback that I have received from her is that it runs a bit large but overall, she is very happy with it. She actually told me that this is "the nicest hoodie she has ever owned". So I guess that's saying quite a lot because this woman owns a TON of clothes! She also mentioned that she loves the thumbholes, they are big enough but not too big.
Cute and warm, but...

- Fit: True to size
I love the print and the styling on this hoodie. I picked it up in cool whip, size L. I regret getting the large because it is cut generously, so now the entire thing is a bit long and bulky, but oh well. It is warm and the styling details are awesome. I do have some criticisms, however.
1. The top of the zippers are *sharp*. If the hoodie is zipped up and covering your face, you don't notice it. When you unzip it to let your face free, however, the top of the zippers poke into your skin when they inevitably hit it. The material holds its shape well, so even when it is unzipped, the front area only lays down a little bit. This makes it so when you turn your head from side to side, the bottom of your jaw/neck is prone to getting scraped by the sharp edges. Bummer. Deal.
2. I *love* the thumb holes! I always *love* thumb holes! These thumbholes, however, are stitched a bit tight. Since the material is quite thick, they give you a handful of material in between your thumb and fingers.
Bottom line: Cute print, great styling elements, could have been executed with a bit more thought to make it perfect.
