I'd go a size up
I was super psyched to get the Tibi racerback top in black, and when it arrived in my usual size (2), I could barely get it over my chest. Definitely no room for a strapless bra (I'm a size 34 B/C) and pulling across the chest. Ladies, if you have even a little bit of a chest, I'd go up a size. Also, while the top looked gorgeous tucked in, if loose it turned out to be quite a bit tent-like. I returned it.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Just a teensy bit too big.
The straps and the cut under the arms were too large on this shirt (I got a size S) - and while I loved the color, the tie knot on the front did not lay as flat as I would have liked, and resulted in a bit of a less-than-flattering bulge.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Rip off (sorry shopbop)
I usually love Bop Basics, but these are simply way too expensive for the quality. I got them for my sister as a gift, but when I opened the package I saw that they are nothing more than the $15 gloves you can buy off a street corner in the city, dime a dozen. For $55, dear shopboppers, you can find something of better caliber.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

So beautiful
I bought this for my best friend as a holiday present, and I was even more pleased when I saw the necklace on her. It is eye-catching but subtle, and it sits perfectly flat. The chain might be a little short for some, but overall, this is an A+.

beautiful, but ouch
I get compliments on these rings - WHEN I wear them. They are perfectly beautiful and delicate, and would be my favorite rings ever if they weren't so sharp. They stab my fingers with the slightest movement, rip holes in my clothing -- seriously. These could be weapons. If you like to live dangerously, or truly believe "beauty is pain", I'd say go for it. If you don't believe in self-inflicted punishment, move on.

Sigh.
This dress is SO GREAT for the price! It is beautifully constructed, with the unexpected sheer panel on the bottom and the dramatic neckline. I received many compliments and my sister has now swiped it for her formal. Careful, though - you'll definitely need double sided tape to keep the girls in check.

Iffy fit
This top was a bit large in the back when I purchased it (I ordered a size S), but after cleaning it and hanging it to dry, it shrunk. A lot. The top is now very short and is nearly unwearable unless paired with a high waisted skirt - very limiting.

So elegant
I love these shoes! They're a bit high for me but I did last a solid 4 hours in them. The suede is beautiful and the shoes lend an elegant drama to the outfit. I would definitely recommend, but again, they are a bit high.

Not quite big enough
Beautifully made, but not large enough for a professional to put files inside. Otherwise, gorgeous. So sad it didn't work.
