Wash Out
This was a lovely material but the color was very, very light. On a pale person like me, it was completely washing me out. I had to return it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not for Me
I was really excited to get this dress, but I found the cut sort of awkward-- it's VERY short and also a bit wide and blousey. On a very tall skinny person that might look cool, but on me, it just wasn't working.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Just Love It
I was skeptical this top would work for me. I'm a somewhat curvy girl, and couldn't imagine the arm cuts being flattering. I have to say though I how very wrong I was. This top looks amazing paired with a pencil skirt and is incredibly flattering. The high-low aspect of the peplum is also a nice touch. it was a bit stretchier than I realized-- this is not a still, structured top-- but I've loved it since it arrived and am not looking back!

Didn't Last!
I loved the look of these jeans-- a nice faded gray color, and the perfect amount of distressing. However, after wearing them only five times-- and doing nothing more physical in them than eat brunch-- a huge hole developed in one of the knees. I definitely wouldn't buy them again.

Baggy Knees
I wanted to really love these jeans. They're a gorgeous color, with a nice matte finish. I've been a bit disappointed by how they wear though-- after one wear, I find that they stretch out a bit, getting baggy around the knees and a little loose at the waist. Washing them shrinks them back, but then they stretch again. If I didn't see the label, I wouldn't have guessed these were premium denim.

J Brand Does it Again
I buy almost all my jeans from J Brand, and this pair reminded me why-- an incredibly comfortable skinny jean, with the perfect amount of rise, and a gorgeous finish. You can't go wrong with these. Worth every penny.

Unbelievably Poor Quality
I love the design of these boots, the exact kind of edgy moto look I was going for. The boots, however, are incredibly poorly made. I've had them about 9 months now, and in multiple spots the black is starting to wear away, revealing a white, flaky plastic that looks just terrible. (This is a big issue on the part of the sole that is visible on the side, right where the leather meets the sole.) I've also had to get the heel resoled, despite the fact I wear them only intermittently. This shoe is Payless quality at Frye price. I'm frankly surprised Shopbop is still selling it with so many complaints. Be smarter than me, and save your money!

Cool Top
This top looks lovely paired with a black pencil skirt and is already a great go-to piece in my work wardrobe. I'm not a huge fan of scuba material generally, but it is nice that it is never wrinkled and very easy to clean. The cut is really nice too. One thing I hadn't realized is that it's pretty structured with shoulder pads. Still, a great purchase.

Great Design, Decent Fabric
I love the print of these skirt, and it fits wonderfully. The fabric though is not what I had imagined. It's very stretchy and almost a touch spandexy or scuba-like, without a lining. It looks good, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're not prepared to show your curves!

Good, not Great.
This sweater, in my opinion, is just OK. It has a nice cut and hangs well, but the knit is quite loose, so it's not super warm. (It would almost be better for fall or spring than winter.) It also isn't a cozy, fuzzy sweater, and actually feels a little rough to the touch. I think next time I'd spend a bit more and get a cashmere waterfall cardigan. I do really like the hook, however, and the way the sweater can be worn two ways.
