Made for Tall Leggy Girls
This dress isn't flattering for the short. I'm 5"2 and it hit my ankles and didn't look good.. You need long legs since this dress is sheer so it looks right on people with long legs to show off. It didn't look right on me and my short legs. Its made for women like the girl in the photo. I'm a size 2 ususally but curvy 34D/25/34 measurements, but I ordered a size zero since I size down in club monaco stuff. The top part of this dress doesn't look right if your big busted, its kinda uniboob like. It wasn't flattering, its just not made for my kind of body. The style of the back is pretty but even with a belt clinching the waist, it just fit poorly up top. The model is small chested, with her it looks right. Also the waist was a bit big and I got drowned in fabric from there down. I will say the color is prettier in person than in the photo's. Online it looks kind of lime green, in person its a bit more emerald green, reminds me of that dress in the movie Atonement. Nice color, bad fit
Sizing: Larger than Expected

More "swirl" than expected
I purchased this at Saks online, and sent it back, I decided to review it here because I usually end up getting things from Shopbop more and wanted to warn people. This skirt is more billowy then expected. Like in a 1960's diner poodle skirt way. I have hips and my standard 2 fit fine but I felt like it billowed out on the sides making my hips bigger and basically all I needed to do was put those flat looking tap shoes on, an argyle sweater and do the twist or something. In the photo it falls better on the model, thus maybe it's not meant for girls with hips because on me, the 2 billowed out on the side waaaay more then in the photo's.

Cute umbrella but feels a little cheap
When I saw this umbrella I finally tossed my worn down black compact. I always wanted a clear, cute umbrella like this one. Its adorable. However, upon getting it I noticed it's not very heavy duty in terms of how it's made. I am expecting this one to not last very long. The plastic is thin, cheap, not durable and the metal rods that push out and like the umbrella are as cheap as they get. They most likely will break, or the plastic will tear. I'm almost afraid to use it because it's so cute. For 65$ I expected something better made, but kept it because it's so cute.

Good Shoes
These are like jelly shoes, in case people were wondering. I guess I wasn't expecting that feel when I walked in them. They are flimsy in terms of their composition, but still they have a thick enough base that they don't feel cheap or anything when you're walking in them. I will say they make the perfect beach shoes! You can get them wet, walk in the sand, etc. Yet they are cute enough to wear with your favorite summer dress, day or night. And you can't tell from looking at them, unless you're right up close, that they're made of rubber. I ordered the pinkish ones and I loved the color, just like in the photo's. Size is spot on too. Nice shoe, nice price, nice color, and very versatile in terms of function. Nice addition Shopbop!

Sheer and See Through
This top is thin and completely sheer and see through. Fabric is thin. You'd have to wear another halter tank underneath to keep your bra etc, from showing. Color is hot pink. Also it's a bit larger then I expected, I didn't like the fit. I ordered an xs and its a bit more billowy in the front than on the model. Its going back.

Nice Jean
These jeans are super soft and I like the color. I've been really hesitant about getting into colored jeans. These I thought would be too much for me, but they have this worn, distressed red look that I actually really like. Its not like an in your face tomato red, but a more muted. The color in the photo's is spot on except for the upper thigh area on the model, in the photo is looks more faded on her upper thighs than the rest of the jean, but in reality its not so much like the photo, the fadednes less prominent in person.

Nice Transition Jean
The color of these jean is a tad bit deeper than the photo. In the photo they look more lighter, in reality they are a tad bit deeper in lilac color. Regardless its definitely a color that you can wear into any season, thus its a great all year round color for a jean. True to size also.

Nice shoe but runs large
I am a standard size 7, I rarely if ever have to size up or down in half a size. I ordered this shoe in my standard size 7 and found it to be long in length. I have about an inch from the tip of my toe to the front edge of the shoe. Will have to send back and order the next size down. Overall, the shoe is nice, its a bit of a pain to get them on, but they're exactly what I was looking for in a summer shoe. They just run long in length.

Good Summer Purchase
I got this necklace in green. It looks just like the picture and is really pretty. I got it to wear with a long rachel pally dress. Perfect for summer. Only problem is when I first wore it, I noticed when I took it off I had some patches of green on my neck and collar bone. The color smeared onto my skin the first time I wore it, thereafter I haven't had as much of an issue at all. Just a forewarning. But this is a great necklace, and I am really debating getting it in the purple too.

Beautiful Earrings!!!!
These are pricy, but I knew that finding a beautiful and quality pair of tassel earrings wasn't going to be cheap. Ever since I saw Nathalie Portman wearing those Tiffany's Tassel earrings in 2011, I have been in love with the trend/style. But haven't been able to find a pair that styled those Tiffany's and cost less then 1,000. Some other jewelry designers make some but they're all over 1,000. This was the first and only pair I can find that meet my standards, are quality, and are amazing on. I get so many compliments every time I wear them, and the pearl/white color means I can style them with more things. I love these earrings. They're just amazing! So happy to have found these.
