Great Dress - Runs Very Small
I love this dress, but am so sad the sizing is way off. I've never tried this line before, so was unsure of the sizing to begin with. To be safe, I ordered both an xs & s. I just received them and a sad to say that they are both way too small. I couldn't even begin to zip up the xs & the s only zipped up half way to my bra band. For reference; I am 5'7, approx 130lbs & wear a size 2 to 4, although lately leaning more towards a 4, and a 26 in jeans. My bra size is a 34B or 32C. I think this is where the problem lies. It's tightest around my bust & would not zip up to close around it. The neckline is so pretty & it accentuates the cleavage nicely that I tried it on with my VS Very Sexy pushup bra. Without the bra it would have still been tight, but with the bra impossible. The dress is perfect in every other way, tho. It is fully lined and the cotton is soft. I really love the midi length, too. I have just ordered the M and would have ordered the L as well, but it sold out.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Getting a Second Pair!
I'm in love! Like many of you, I have been on a hunt for leather pants for the longest. At first I wasn't sure if I really wanted real leather pants, and more importantly, did I really want to spend all that money?! So, I decided to go the "leatherette" route and tried both J Brand's and AG's (brands that I both love and pretty much wear exclusively in denim). Unfortunately, I wasn't thrilled with either. Then I shelled out the big bucks and bought both the Vince leather crop leggings and Vince's leather jeans - again, a brand I love, but, again, the fit just wasn't right for me. Then I stumbled upon these. Perfection! I'll admit, I really wanted the full leather look, but these are so amazing that the fabric in back doesn't bother me. It's a good nice weight material and is the best deepest shade of black. I am a true 26 in jeans and between a XS and S, I ordered S and it is a perfect fit. A little hard to get on at first, but perfect once on. Ordering a 2nd pair just in case! :)

So Pretty
Ok, so I'm leaving a review for this dress, but I did not actually get this dress here at Shopbop (sorry Shopbop!). I fell in love with the bustier version of this dress in black, but the bustier is too short for my taste. I saw this dress and instantly thought that I could hem it to wear more as a tunic top - or at least at a length where it graze over my hips. The dress itself is too short to wear as a dress for my taste as well. (I know, I'm real picky!) :) Anyway, I wasn't crazy about the tan color of this dress, so on a hunch, I called the RT store in LA to see if perhaps they had the dress in black, and sure enough, they did! It worked out perfectly. I took it to my tailor and had it hemmed just under 2 inches and I now have a beautiful bustier top that I can wear with my skinny's without feeling like I have my backside on display. I am thin and have a decent figure, but it's just a thing I have about having my butt exposed... lol I am a size 2 (5'7, 120lbs, 32B) and the 2 fit.

So Cute and Warm
Really cute sweater - love the back! Ordered the Natural color.... I tried both a xs and small, and the small is what I chose. It fits rather snug in the sleeves.

Love this!
I really love this top... Not sure what the reviewer below me meant about the sleeves being uncomfortable? I don't find them uncomfortable in the least. I'm a size xs and that is what I ordered. Fits just like the model. Looks great with black pants/jeans or denim and layered with long necklaces. :)

Cute
Cute top by Parker. I am normally a size xs in Parker, but ordered a small b/c the model is listed as wearing a small, and we are about the same build. I took a chance b/c it was a final sale item, but I figured the straps are adjustable with the ties, so I could always tighten it up that way. Anyway, a small worked just fine. It is lined and a nice quality silk, as well as a pretty shade of yellow.

Cute
Very cute top... arrived extremely wrinkled, but after ironing it, it hung nicely on me. I am between a xs and small, and ordered a small, which I normally do for Blue Life tops. Pretty blush color and the back is what really makes this standout.

Great skirt
Just what I was looking for .... I wanted a knit black skirt in a 'midi' length to wear with ankle boots or knee high boots. Looks real cute with flats, too. It is not a tight, snug fitting skirt. Fits like the model. I am between a xs and small, or size 2/26 and the xs fits.... could even fit a little tighter, but it's fine, so long as it doesn't stretch out a lot over time. It is a substantial knit, which makes it a nice warm skirt as well. Very happy.

So pretty
Lovely skirt. Fits small, as I am a true size 2, and although I could zip this up, it was a tight fit. I have just ordered a size 4.
