Fantastic transitional piece!
This is wonderfully soft, drapes perfectly and is the perfect weight for a summer evening into fall. I think this will easily be one of those pieces that is a go-to as t can be dressed up or down! Only problem? I WANT MORE COLORS ! Black, cranberry, purple, heathered ivory....come on C&C...I'll happily buy them all!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

IF ONLY NO POCKETS!!
Now I know why the model has her hands in pockets in all photos (or covering the pockets)....this FABULOUS dress of perfect transitional season fabric is RUINED by pockets that lay in the most strange and unflattering of ways! The dress is not too small for me and yet the pockets don't lay flat forward OR back. Such a shame. I love this dress so much otherwise that I'm actually considering taking it to a tailor to remove the pockets, but it was so expensive already...... The burgundy Rosel dress on the other hand? STUNNING, PERFECT, GET IT!!

Great basic - a must have!
I am IN LOVE with this top and wish BOP carried the other colors that it comes in by Free People, but I got this one and the striped version here on Bop and they are amazing. Incredibly soft, they are roomy but still really drape nicely to the body. Not boxy thank goodness! I got the large (I am a size 12 after a year with thyroid disease....was a size 4 before) Point being I tend to hate myself in anything these days, but this with leggings or shorts is really flattering. I could probably get away with a medium easily, but I don't want to give it up to switch sizes (even though it's 100 degrees out)! GET THIS TOP!

Not as nice as the shirt version
Unless you are very thin this will not be flattering on you. There is a sweater version of this print / material that I love and wear a lot. I'm a size 8-10 and again, for my size it's just not flattering. For a size 2-4 I can see it looking great.

Beautiful salmon color!
I almost didn't buy this top because of the review here that says it is nothing but a beige t shirt. I had a feeling it was more than that so I went for it and am so glad I did! The whole outfit pictured is really wonderful as a matter of fact. While the color is not as intense as it appears on my computer screen, this shirt is a very light salmon color....definitely NOT just a beige shirt!

FANTASTIC!
Extremely comfortable, a little bit of stretch and one of the only flattering pairs of pants I have found given a recent significant weight gain. They are fitted in all the right places and loose in all the right places. I got both colors and love them both. The fabric is just thick enough that skin does NOT show through the white and the pocket lining isn't an issue since the pants have a nice fit and a great bit of stretch to them. If you've put on some winter weight....these are the pants for you!

Gorgeous top and versatile!
I was expecting NOT to like this top actually as I generally dislike the elastic off the shoulder fussing that needs to be done BUT this top is a gorgeous pattern that is flattering and actually hides any winter bulge or muffin top you may have developed like I have! It does need to be fussed with a bit like any other top of it's style, but it is so cute and so versatile that it makes it worth the fuss. Give it a try!

Want to love it...
I don't think I've ever returned a single E&J item that I've purchased and I especially love their tops. I'm used to the fit being a bit generous but that isn't the case with this shirt. The reason I'm unsure on this top is that while the photo here shows the top hanging straight down and buttoned to the bottom, when my shirt came from BOP it was tied at the bottom resulting in loads of wrinkles to dry clean only fabric. My size was out of stock so I can't exchange it. Because the pattern is gorgeous I thought perhaps I'd see if I could find it elsewhere....a quick survey of shopstyle showed me that everywhere it is sold it seams to be styled tied at the bottom with 2 buttons undone for the tying. I'm not sure I like that look for someone over 35 as i am BUT while BOP seems to have it styled hanging straight in this photo, it doesn't hang very well when worn that way. I still haven't decided but would love to hear from BOP....is this top meant to be styled down or tied?

A M A Z I N G !!
I've gained some weight in the past year and these pants are unbelievably flattering. I'm calling them pants because that's what everyone will think you're wearing. I'd suggest buying them just a bit big to accentuate that pants look and feel. I've gotten non stop comments each time I wear these on how fabulous they are and how fabulous I look in them (even from my husband who generally never comments on anything)! My only regret? I didn't by them in grey before they sold out. I only have black. Get them now, you won't regret it.

Fantastic and great price!
This sweater is far beyond what I thought it would be considering that it cost half as much as the other Alexander Wang sweaters I have purchased this fall. The fabric is fantastic and the fit is great! It's not too baggy but will be that go to "snug" sweater that you always want to reach for. Fantastic with leggings a T by Alexander Wang t-shirt dress and a pair of boots. I'm loving this sweater and plan to buy it in the other color as well (I have the grey). Don't miss out, this one is a wardrobe must!
