Amazing, amazing skirt!
I caught this on sale & it is by far the most beautiful skirt I own. I love the unique asymmetrical cut, which can also work when you swing the longer side to the back instead of the side. Very much in love, and the lace is quite thick, detailed & amazing in quality. The slip is a nice pinky nude colour to bring out the beautiful lace more. It really is more gorgeous in person. Don't miss it while it's on sale because it is worth it. I am a true size 6US (10AU) but since I am a bit short, at 5'3, I like to wear my skirts a little higher up the waist. I purchased the size 4US (8AU), & the fit was absolutely perfect! I could have gotten away with either 4US or 6US. The elastic doesn't feel tight at all on the 4US, & after I purchased this from shopbop, I went to try on a size 6US in store, & it wasn't loose. So if you're stuck on sizes, or your size is sold out, you will probably be fine either way. The length is perfect, & you can wear it shorter or longer! My favourite lover piece too!

Size Down!
I bought the vintage rose in M, and it is at least 2 sizes too big! I am 5'4, usually a US6, and I was swimming in it. It's too wide to even pull off the oversized look. I tried belting it (I even used the same belt pictured), and it looked a bit awkward and bunched up too much.The length also just hit my knees, and makes my legs look too cut off at that length. I'm not a fan of metallic knits but the gold flecks actually turned out nicely on this piece. On the tag it says, "the metallic sheen of this fabric was achieved using a special printing process that will fade over time". It's itchy and a little sheer. Too bad there are no smalls left in vintage rose, which is a beautiful colour. I can kind of make it work if I tuck it into a high waist skirt or maxi skirt. It still has potential to look great, but I'm very ambivalent about this one.

Delicate
I got the Ivory in M and it is absolutely gorgeous. However, it had a very strong musky scent and it is a lot larger than expected. I'm usually a US6 and this tunic is just unnecessarily wide. Since the Ivory smalls are sold out, I think I'll reorder the black in S next time. I do love the length though. It's very detailed the pattern is just perfect. I've been looking for a tunic like this for a very long time. You do have to be careful though as it's quite delicate -another item in my order actually pierced one of the holes near the bust area and made it noticeably larger, and this was just during the shipping! I was a little disappointed about the hole, but I've contacted shopbop. It's lovely as a dress when worn with a slip, and also works when tucked into a high waist skirt.

Colour not as pictured
It's unique belt but I'm not sure that it's worth the price that I paid. It does have a nice weight to it, as described below, but when you feel it in your hands, the individual links are thin and light and do not seem that durable compared to other leather belts I have purchased for less. I got mine in natural and not sure if it was just the belt I received, but I was really disappointed with the colour. I usually have very good experiences with receiving shopbop items close to the coloured pictured but this one is very washed out and more like a very pale beige compared to the warmer brown belt pictured. Maybe I'll recolour it because I don't feel this belt adds much of pop to an outfit in this colour. If it goes on sale, I think I'll purchase one of the darker colours. I got the size M and do love that you can thread the buckle along any point of the belt - makes it more versatile that way.

Love that fringe!
They just added more lovely colours! I purchased the blush colour and it's not quite as bright in person and the slightest bit darker but I love the colour. It's neutral, not too girly, and goes with many, many things in my wardrobe. I still prefer my love quote scarves and find them slightly softer, but that might be because I've already worn them so many times. It's 53/47 viscose/linen, while love quotes is 50/50. The quality is still outstanding, it's not too hot for spring, and still does the trick in winter. I fell in love with the fringe detail, which absolutely won me over, and it's something that a lot of people notice. The fringe makes them seem fancier than the love quotes scarves (probably the only real difference). It completely transforms a plain, casual outfit, and the size is fantastic - you can wear it so many ways. You can never have enough scarves, and this one is a perfect addition to anyone's wardrobe. I'm considering getting another in orange or terracotta..

Perfectly simple and a bit 60s
Such a lovely & perfectly simple dress! The stone/ivory+navy colour is a nice change from black+white. This dress goes with a lot of colours -so far, I've styled it with red, black, grey, & yellow pieces on different occasions. It's such a classic and timeless piece that is very versatile. It looks fantastic belted for a more relaxed day look, or you can fancy it up with a blazer at night. This dress seems a lot longer in person (probably because the model is so tall), even with the strap adjusted. You can't really make the straps too short, or the top will look a bit awkward. I'm approx. 5'4, and it still sits well above my knees, but an inch or so shorter would be perfect. I definitely recommend this if you are tall. It's a nice oversized fit but not a lot of room in the bust. I am a 34C and it just fits, so if you have a larger bust size, you might find size M to be a bit tight. It's still very flattering because of the nice drapey material -amazing quality!

cute
Very cute, and not boxy at all! It was slightly itchy on the first try, but that somehow went away. The ink is gorgeous, colour as photographed, and it truly does look vintage. If there was stil a red in my size, I would have snapped it up too. I'm fairly average, usually a US6, and 34C, but this actually makes you look quite tiny. The medium was a perfect fit and there was still a ton of room to layer. I usually wear all my cardi's unbuttoned because my chest would make them all look boxy, but this one is great buttoned up, and gives a completely different look. It's comfortable, warm and goes well with shorts and skirts. Because of the cut and style, particularly the bottom, this cardi doesn't really work with long and loose tops or dresses, unless it's tucked in or a really soft material. It's great quality, one of my current favourite cardi's, and I don't know what else to tell you.

Gorgeous
The size 10 slip fits well & has adjustable straps but I am a 34C and it would probably be tight for larger bust sizes. The outer layer has excess material, especially if you are on the shorter side or have a small torso but you can easily style the upper half to suit you with the waist tie. The sleeves are on the longer side but the whole dress drapes nicely and does not give a bloated appearance. The detailing is gorgeous and the pleats make it very flattering. Overall, I would say it runs true to size, but recommend this if you are average to tall. I am 5'4" and the length still hits well above the knees. The colour is very close to the photos on my mac monitor, and perhaps only one shade darker in person. I think this suits those with medium to dark complexions best. I'm glad I caught this piece on sale and not sure that I would have paid full price for it, but it is a quality garment and something I would wear for a special occasion.

Lovely
I love this bag! It fits my 13" macbook pro perfectly, along with some text/note books and all the other junk I bring along with me to uni. The double handles are handy indeed and the bag is such a lovely style and sits so well, even when packed to the brim. I was hard pressed to pay that much for a canvas tote at first, but the quality really is excellent and the style is perfect. It's very comfortable on the shoulders, and the bag is sturdy enough to hold shape. The details are amazing -looking inside this bag, with its quote filled with walls, makes me happy. I even tried turning the bag inside out, but that didn't quite work out. I find it very chic yet casual and can go with a variety of clothing styles - from feminine, chic, and dressy, to casual, and low key. These are limited edition too, so don't hesitate! End of thinking capacity.

Simple Yet Stunning
I love the House of Harlow range, and this is my ninth piece from the collection. I've had mostly great experiences from this label so far and just adore the style. The very fine chain is easily knotted, and seems quite fragile, but the super length is perfect. The chain links are quite unique (shaped like an eight), sturdy, and bode well in carrying the somewhat heavy medallion. The weight is not too big of an issue and I don't find my neck getting sore unless worn for an extended period of time. I love that the medallion is magnetic (I suspect the magnets are the cause of the weight), however, it is not very practical as a locket. The intricate patterns are gorgeous yet the piece as a whole is very simple and goes with many outfits. The medallion is also a lot shinier than I expected and seems easily scratched, but I feel that scratches will give it a nice vintage charm. The quality is fantastic for the price. One star off for the weight and easily knotted chain
