Polka Dot Love
I got this from my Madewell store and thought I'd review it here. I love the lightweight material of this blazer, and, of course, the polka dot pattern. As for fit, I think the model pictures here on shopbop are more accurate than the ones on the Madewell website, where the jacket looks like it is more fitted at the waist and snug through the shoulders/top of sleeves. The fit, at least on me, is pretty straight, slightly boxy if anything, but because I'm styling it pretty much like it's shown here (casually, with a t-shirt over jeans), I don't mind that it's not more tailored. And, um, it's polka dots. WINNING!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Better in pictures...
I waited forever for this skirt to go on sale...and go on sale again before making my move. I loved the pale green/seafoam-y color and breezy/translucent material of the skirt. I did not like the cotton lining: it was slightly more fitted/less gathered than shown and, at least on me, the lining appeared about an inch or two shorter than the overlay. This would not have been a deal breaker if the skirt was a little longer, but I needed those two inches, and I had sized up such that I could wear it slightly lower on my waist! (I found it to be true to size; as it is designed to be worn higher...)

Love the color, question the longevity
I loved the bright (I got the neon yellow) color of these when I first saw them but I waited...and then they sold out in my size...everywhere! So when shopbop had one pair back in stock (someone else returned them?) I added them to my cart immediately. While the color itself was just as bright and lovely as I had hoped, the color application/coating felt a little chintzy to me and I could definitely foresee the color rubbing off as mentioned in some of the previous reviews...if you look closely at some of the pictures you can see where the neon layer is kind of wrinkly and would start to peel away. While I don't expect my sandals to last much longer than the summer, I did expect higher quality from Rebecca Minkoff. They were also slightly big. Such a bummer, now I have to find my pop of neon elsewhere!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

An everyday fave I didn't know I needed!
I had been eyeing these bangles forever and bought them a while back during a promotion. I'm not usually a fan of bangles (too noisy, and by the end of the day that's annoying) but these don't sound cheap when they clink together. I agree with the other reviews that the gold finish is more matte but I like that they are more muted and therefore understated. The softly curved edges lend them an organic feel. They mix easily with my other jewelry and they look fine worn all at once and also elegant when worn individually or 2 at a time.

Loved Stripes, Hated Short and Sheer
I love Edith A. Miller and I love the colors of this dress but I found it's shortness and sheerness limiting... I tried making it work as a tunic over skinny jeans and didn't like the look. If it goes on sale, I think I'd reconsider it for around-the-house-loungewear as it is stretchy and soft!

Perfect...if you're not between sizes!
I loved this shoe: the color, the quality... however I was between sizes: my usual size was a tad too big and I could tell the next size down would be too small. Ugh, where are the half sizes?!
Sizing: Larger than Expected
