Over priced
I wanted to love this, I have it in black for underneath a sheer dress, but it's very stretchy, very fine and it rides up, which is unfortunate.

Fantastic basic
This skirt is an absolutely fantastic basic piece for any wardrobe. It is made of beautiful soft cotton/jersey with a little bit of a stretch, making it comfortable, but the classic black keeps it chic. I wear mine with basic cotton tees, leather jackets and ankle boots, but it also looks great with a pair of simple leather sandals. The split up the side gives it an interesting edge, and it's not too high. Another great feature is the demi slip at the top of the skirt, which stops just before the split comes to the point. Admittedly, I was worried about the lightness of the fabric making it sheer, but the slip assuaged all fears. I couldn't recommmend this skirt more highly!

In love
They are fantastic. I can't wait until payday so I can get the grey ones. I got them in teal and it's such a gorgeous colour -- they are more on the green side of teal, rather than blue and will be perfect for Sydney Autumn. Perfect with a dolman sleeved light jumper and some flats. First J-Brands, certainly won't be my last.

I think I'm a weird shape
After seeing all the reviews advising to size down, I decided to take my regular size in designer denim, a 29. I couldn't get them over my thighs! I gifted them to my slimmer sister, and they fit perfectly on the legs and back, except she had quite a big gap in the waist. She usually takes a 27. All that being said, the leopard print is subtle, and the denim is so lovely and soft, perfect as usual for material used by Current/Elliott. The big button at the front is also a nice touch, and they look great with a grey sweater and some brogues, or with sandals and a white tank. I've ordered them in a bigger size, so hopefully they'll fit, as I can't wait to wear them!

Hopeful, but...
I first saw this paired with a Malene Birger peach skirt and thought it was so lovely, as I love the look of peach, apricot and beige paired with such a rich metallic. Unfortunately, it runs extremely small, and the material is so fine that it will catch on almost anything. When it arrived, the tag had already pulled a bit of the fabric. This is absolutely no fault of shopbop, just the nature of the fabric. I'm quite busty (double D) and it doesn't suit me at all, as the neck sits higher on me than the picture denotes. All that being said, the colour is amazing, and it feels so beautiful, and it's a perfect extra 'something' with a pair of printed jeans. Furthermore, I could afford to shed some pounds anyway, so fingers crossed it will look better in the future. :)

Handy accessory
Dresses up everything and anything - I've got it in gold and it goes beautifully with navy, black and cream. Perfect for when you need a little extra 'something'.

Great shirt...
but it's a little smaller than expected. I like my tops to be loose-fitting, and usually a large in Equipment does the trick. The arms on this shirt are quite tight, but I need some toning anyway. I think this is more of the 'Brett' style than the 'Signature' style. One last note; the colour isn't really black, I'd say it's more of a charcoal. Beautiful butter- soft silk as always.

Love K Jacques
These sandals are incredible - I love K Jacques, and tend to buy 2 pairs a year, as I wear them everywhere and with pretty much everything. The initial wear is always a little bit tight, but once your foot, they leather will soften up quickly. I've got quite narrow feet, and these fit perfectly, so if you're on the broader side, you may want to size up. The olive colour appears to have some more grey in it in the photo, but in person, they are a true deep-green hued olive, no grey at all in the colour. Olive is a beautiful neutral colour, so I'm not disappointed at all. Although some may consider them a little pricy for sandles, the amount of wear you get from them far, far outweighs the slightly high price tag.

Gorgeous, but a little small
I got the L, wanting a loose fit, but it's a little clingy on the hips. Still, great striped top, perfect with a bright pink pencil skirt and nude shoes & bag. The cotton is deliciously soft, and the sweet little neon accents on the top buttons are a cool edition.

Gorgeous 1970s vibe
This dress is fantastic. The crepe is a little heavier than expected, but that's a moot point when you consider the gorgeous flow of the pleats, and how flattering it is. I'm 5"4 and quite curvy, but with a pair of gorgeous ecru wedges, it gives a slim line. The navy gives off a 1970s Valley of the Dolls vibe -- love it.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
