I get so many compliments when I wear Chatelle and surprisingly she goes with so many of my outfits. I didn't have a problem putting her on or lacing her up and I lasted all day in her every time I wore her. I bought size 9 and she fits true to size but I actually could have gotten a size 8 1/2 and been just fine. The color is a pale orange almost yellow looking to me. The design is perfect and I am glad Chatelle makes my outfits pop.
