IN LOVE WITH IT!
Every season, I make sure I invest in a few pieces that I absolutely love and this pair of shorts is one of them! I missed out on the version with the lace trim instead of the chiffon trim last season and have been beating myself up over it. So imagine my delight when I spotted these during my daily rounds on shopbop's "What's New" page. I immediately tried them on at bloomingdale's for sizing and fit, and purchased them right when I got home with the FRIENDS AND FAMILY promotion (ShopBop, please have more of these Friends and family promotions! We will LOVE you even more than we already do! Promise!) On sizing, I am petite, about 5'2" and wear 25-26 for denim and the size XS fits me perfectly. What I love about these shorts is that they're comfortable and not skin tight, therefore camouflaging my wide hips perfectly! I will be pairing them with a white slouchy tee and ankle boots, and adding tights when the weather cools down. Cannot wait to receive them from shopbop!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Uncomfortable + too low neckline
I have this in the camel color which I got from barneys but regret keeping it. I like the combination of leather and jersey but the leather sleeves were uncomfortable. It felt stiff and I could def feel the whole strip of leather down the length of my arm. Also, even though I already bought the xs, it was still too large and the neckline kept 'drooping' down to reveal my bra-not at all classy, also, this style is getting old-many brands are making these leather-jersey combo tops, so it isn't so special anymore. Would rather invest in a classic like an Equipment blouse!

too simple
This blouse is first of all too long, especially for petite girls like myself. Probably could have belted it but I hate fussing with those. The mandarin collar was unflattering and the only detail I liked about it was the slit at the back. Other than that, definitely not worth the price tag. The material is a very comfortable silky material though.

Not worth the price & weird draping
Tried this on at Barney's and though they look nice, they are not worth the $300 price tag. The material is a silky chiffon but the draping actually makes me look wider than I actually am. My friend even commented that I looked pregnant! I only like the python print on it.

Stretches out very easily
This is a great basic slouchy Tee BUT it stretches out after just one wash! I have 2 of these T's and they both stretch out after one wash and I have no idea why. I do not have this problem with my other Tees. The XS is already very baggy for me to begin with and after washing them, they've become more of a tunic dress than a tshirt for me! I love the fit (before I washed them) but I guess I'll have to stop buying them until I figure out why its stretching out like this or if its the fabric that Awang is using.

Cool take on the military trend
I purchased this is in the Olive green color that shopbop doesn't carry and I must say this is by far the best army jacket I have ever tried on. I have always been a fan of the military look and have been on the hunt for an army jacket that fits my petite frame and is not too 'trendy'. This jacket definitely fits the bill. I bought it in a size 0 and it fits just right. i like that the collar can be made to 'stand up' so that it gives a cooler vibe when worn that way. I definitely would not buy this camo version that shopbop has but I know for a fact that there are people who actually like it so if you're one of them, go for it! It definitely makes a stronger statement but I personally find it a little too literal for the military look if you know what I mean. However, I am having a little trouble finding the right outfit to pair this jacket with. Because I am petite, it does not look good with jeans or shorts. I 'll just have to play around with it.

Very heavy jacket
I have several leather jackets and this is by far the HEAVIEST leather jacket I have ever tried on! Fit and look is just alright, didn't love it but didn't dislike it either. It's just one of those jackets where you try it on and its "hmmmm..."..The fact that it was so heavy was a deal breaker for me so I did not purchase it.

Very tight
This is an extremely tight jacket. Be sure to size up at least one size, or even 2 if you have large arms. The only thing I like about the jacket is the lovely nude color, but the stand up color looks weird and its not comfortable. Had to return it. Wouldn't buy it unless it was heavily discounted.

Heavy and uncomfortable
I ordered them in my true size and they fit just right. I have always wanted these boots because I kept seeing them on models (on blogs) and i thought, if so many people wear them they must be extraordinarily comfortable boots. But that was not the case. Even though I wore socks with them, I can still feel the inside of the boots rubbing against the back of my ankle even though they were the right size. Walking in them for about 20 minutes is enough to cause pain and discomfort .Also, they are very heavy and it feels like i am walking around with rocks in my shoes. They also caused some color transfer to my socks, which was very frustrating. I had to keep them because I wore them out without first trying them on properly. So if there's anything you learned from this review is that ALWAYS TRY ON YOUR SHOES AT HOME before stepping out in them.

Disappointing
I have always had my eye on this blouse and when it was marked down by 50%, I immediately snagged it but was slightly disappointed by it. The silk was of decent quality and not too thin like some cheap silk blouses can be. However, I ordered it in a size XS but found it to be constricting. If I raised my arms or stretched them in any way I can feel the blouse pulling. However, it actually fits just right. I just was not satisfied with the overall look of it. The color was also not as nice as it looked in the photos. It is NOT a completely unwearable blouse but I never keep anything unless I LOVE it 100%. So do give it a try if you like it! keep in mind you might wanna size up for this blouse if you don't want it to be uncomfortable.
