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.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

A Bit Roomy
This sweater is lovely and soft, and raw edges and gray heather color are just beautiful. It is definitely a relaxed fit, however. I know others love the cut but on my petite (but curvy) frame it looks a little blousy around the stomach area. I'm debating whether to keep it as a result.

Perfect Basic Black Jeans
I wanted a pair of basic, black denim jeans without a shiny finish to replace a pair of Joe's Jeans I'd basically worn into the ground with three years of regular wear. These were perfect-- just a basic, black jean made with high-quality J Brand denim and their well-thought-out fit. Probably the most worn item in my wardrobe at this point. Love it!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute Jeans
I was looking for a pretty, print jean that had some color, without being overboard. These are great for that purpose-- the cobalt blue is lovely and they look great paired with a black or gray sweater and moto boots. The one thing I would change is that the denim is a little thinner than I'd expected, and they gap a bit on me in the back at the belt-line. Not quite the same quality denim, in my opinion, as J Brand, my favorite denim label.

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.

Love it!
This blazer is great for a polished, but also casual look. It's made of a beautiful, thick jersey and looks just fabulous paired with a sweater and jeans. The leather is also incredibly soft and comfortable to wear (ie: it's not stiff at all). The only thing I'd change is that it could use a button. It can only be worn open.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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!

Meh
I ordered this top in a size medium. I have the white, short sleeved, Alice + Olivia boatneck, brocade peplum top in the same size, and it fits like a glove. This one, however, was way too baggy in the stomach area, and also big in the shoulders. It gapped under my armpits as well. I'm a fairly petite size (short) size medium with a largish bust. This size definitely didn't work for me! It's worth noting though that the material was thick and nice, high quality jersey. I could see this piece working well on someone else a bit taller with broader shoulders.
