Funky chic but...
I purchased this bag in black because I loved the look and it reminded me of a Balenciaga City bag (minus the ridiculous price tag). When I finally got it though, I was a little disappointed. The leather quality is good and the bag looks great but the five zippered pockets on the front aren't all completely functional and those that are, they're a bit on the small side (the pockets in each corner work but aren't usable). The zippers that go along each side of the bag don't do anything at all. I was under the (false) impression that they were narrow pockets that went the entire depth of the bag (which would have been fantastic imo). The main compartment is quite roomy and holds everything I need. I think I was just expecting more out of this bag given how much I love and use my RM Cupid bag (which has several great fully usable pockets). I decided to send this one back and keep looking for my perfect rock n roll daily bag.

Sweet but...
I wanted these boots for so long but I was hesitant to purchase them because of some reviews that stated how difficult they are to get on if you have a high arch and/or a bit of a wide foot. Being as I'm "blessed" with both, I couldn't quite get on board. I managed to track them down at a local store and try them on and I'm glad I did. They're not quite as cute in person. They're still a fun little bootie but to me, they really popped online and I wasn't in love with them in person. They were also (as I had feared) incredibly difficult to get on. Since I was in actual store (with people around) I couldn't really give it the old college try but I don't know that it would have helped. Given the cost, I decided to pass and get the Sam Edelman Louie instead and I'm much more satisfied with my purchase.

Unique Coat!
I have several BB Dakota coats and this might be my new favorite! I wasn't sure what to expect since it's a "blanket" style. I'm only 5'3" and sometimes this style tends to overwhelm my frame. However, the design of this coat is done very well. It hits a few inches below the hip so it's not too long as to look like you're wearing an actual blanket but not too short that it looks awkward. This looks cute open for a more a relaxed look but I prefered it belted which really cinches in the waist and gives you a modern yet relaxed look. This coat is just heavy enough and definitely seems like it would keep you warm when the weather is cold. Looking forward to wearing this with dark skinny jeans and boots for a perfect relaxed but dressy look. I'm typically a size 4 overall (34B as well) and the small fit just fine. This allowed plenty of room to layer if I wanted to as well.

Unique Vest
I wish i could give this 3 1/2 stars because while I like the overall look of the vest, the quality doesn't quite warrant the price tag. The vest is well constructed but the tweed material and the faux leather trim isn't the best quality. It's not poor, just a litte more lightweight than what I was expecting. This does run true to size (i'm 5'3", 34B, size 4 overall and the small fit fine). The front of the vest drapes well and as others have mentioned, this will be easy to belt or leave open depending on the look you're going for. Though I think it's a little pricey, I'll keep it because it's different than anything I have in my closet and since it is lightweight it should make it easy to layer. If this was half the price, I would have given it five stars. Overall, a good piece for fall that i look forward to styling.

Love these shorts!
This is my second pair of Joe's Jeans shorts and I am beyond pleased with the quality, price and the fit. First, the quality of the denim is superb. It's very well done and the wash is just dark enough that it's easy to dress up or down. These do stretch a bit but not a ton. Second, the price is reasonable for a designer pair of denim shorts. Since these are such good quality, I know they'll last for awhile and this style will never really go out of fashion. Third, I absolutely LOVE the fit on these shorts! I'm typically a 27 or 28 (size 4 overall). Went with the 28 because that's the size of my other Joe's denim shorts and the fit is great. Overall, it's a bit loose (I think I could have easily worn the 27) but it has a boyfriend fit to it which I love. The inseam length is perfect as well. Not too long, not too short. if you're looking for a classic short that won't ever really go out of style, these are definitely the pair to get!

Fantastic Leather Shorts!
I've been on the hunt for leather shorts for awhile but didn't want to spend a fortune. When I saw these Blank shorts, I knew I had to give them a shot. I'm so glad I did too! The quality of the leather is great! The leather is soft w/just enough structure they shouldn't stretch out. I love how these are styled after denim shorts w/the pockets etc. In my opinion, that makes these easier to dress up (w/a cute flowy top or a blazer) as it does to dress down (w/a tank or rocker tee). The sizing on these is true. I'm typically a 27 (size 4) sometimes a 28 depending on the brand. Since these were leather & I didn't want a super snug fit, I went w/a 28. The fit was great. The legs are a bit loose (not as tight on me as they are in the picture) & the inseam is great! Not too long or short. Waist is a bit big but not bad. 1 small complaint, the button is hard to get undone. I think once I work with it a few times, it will be fine. These will easily transition to fall with tights and booties,

My New Favorite Watch!
Typically, I'm a silver/white gold only girl. I don't wear gold because it's just never been a color I think looks good on me. However, when I saw this rose gold watch by Michael Kors I was in love! It's the best of both worlds. The color is rosy and warm enough it will work with the two or three gold pieces that I have and still goes great with my silver and white gold jewelry. The face on this is very large (about the size of some men's watches) but that's what I wanted. I prefer a masculine watch to balance out my corporate and casual wear. Plus, I also think it works as a nice contrast to the more feminine rose gold. I too had to take 4 links out but that's the norm for me. I'll admit, based on previous reviews. I'm slightly worried that the rose gold will wear away on the under side of the watch but it's a risk I'm willing to take. Thanks Shopbop for getting the watch to me quickly! This was an anniversary present from my hubby and I couldn't wait to wear it!!

Cute and Funky!
This necklace immediately caught my eye because it's so unique and funky without being too over the top! I own a few Marc by Marc Jacobs watches and the quality is always terrific as is this piece. The crystals on this are really well done and the watch on the back though small is easy to read. It's a great way to add a little twist to whatever you're wearing. Highly recommend.

Great jeans!
I have several pairs of 7FAM jeans and these are probably one of my faves. The dark wash is universally flattering and makes it easy to dress up or down. Agree with the previous reviewer that being short (I'm 5'3") the flip flop length is actually perfect for me and allows me to wear about a 3 in. heel. I prefer that though because that means I don't have to have these hemmed. These run true to size. I'm typically a size 4 in jeans (size 27 in 7FAM) and the 27 in these fit perfectly. They do stretch out some but not too bad. Overall, I highly recommend these. They're a wardrobe staple for me as I've gotten tons of use out of them.

Gorgeous scarf!
Purchased this scarf in pink multi as a gift for my Mom for Christmas. I received it yesterday and now I hate to give it up! The colors on this are absolutely gorgeous and warm. Since there is such a variety of colors, it will go with a lot of different jackets. It's even warm enough to wear by itself over a sweater on chilly days. Not sure if it sheds or not like the other reviewer noted since I haven't worn it (though I've been tempted). However, it really is a statement piece. Highly recommend!
