Big and long sleeves!
I should have ordered an x-small in this sweater. I am currently 8 months pregnant, 34DD, and the small was big on me. The sleeves are way too long (almost to my fingertips) and loose (I'm 5'3") so my only option would be to roll them which kind of ruins the look. I imagine an x-small would be better but I don't even know if that would solve the sleeve issue...this may only be a good sweater for taller people, as the sleeves even look a little long on the model. The knit is nice and soft, however, and especially on sale it was a good price, so if you're tall this may be good for you.

Not bad...but not what I expected
Many Ray-Bans are made in Italy so I was disappointed to see these are made in China. I ordered the gray color and I think I thought the lenses would have a bluish tint but they're just gray. They also are a little smaller on my face than I expected, and they sit right on my cheekbones so when I smile they push up (this is a common problem with sunglasses for me). I only keep one pair of sunnies at a time to wear regularly so they have to be perfect, and these just didn't do it for me.

Pretty belt
This belt is beautiful, as it should be for the price. It helps to get it on sale. It should be noted, however, that the size range is more limited than indicated by the measurements posted by Shopbop. I ordered a small and there's no way it would fit up to a 30" waist. I am currently pregnant with less than a month to go and needed something to look forward to--but I measured the belt to make sure it would fit me when I'm normal again. On the loosest hole I think the biggest it would fit is 29", maybe even a little less since it has to overlap. There are only 5 holes (4" total apart) and the difference in each hole is spread out over three wraps so each hole does not make much difference. This is definitely a waist belt, you won't have enough leeway to wear it as both a waist and hip belt. If you're not sure assume the belt will only fit the smaller end of the range in the size description.

Runs very big even for Fryes
I have two other pairs of Frye boots (Engineer and Carmen) in 8.5 and they fit comfortably but well. This pair is longer in the foot. I would definitely size down. A half size down would probably work for me, but my foot is a little wide so narrow footed people may want to consider going down a full size. Other than that, the finish on the boot is beautiful--maybe a little more brown in real life and I was expecting more gray. It is slouchy which is cute. The front part of the sole is thicker than I expected, giving it a slightly clunky look. My brown Carmen three-strap is more flattering and will go with almost everything this boot would go with so I probably won't reorder if my size comes in.

Cute but a little heavy looking
I have tried these boots in both the 12R and 8R versions. I am 5'3" and the 8R were better for me since the 12R hit in an awkward place right at the bottom of the calf muscle and kind of made me look like I had cankles. Taller gals may prefer the 12R (I sold mine on ebay and almost recovered what I paid). These can look a little heavy and clunky but are cute when worn right--they're just not quite as versatile as I'd hoped. If you have a high arch like me they are a little difficult to get on as the prior reviewer described, but once on they are perfectly comfortable. I live in a snowy area and these are great for slushy days--and they hold up beautifully to nasty weather. They look great with boyfriend jeans and leggings, but not so good with skinnies where there's any bunching at the ankle (since I'm short most of my jeans bunch). Still a worthy purchase and get tons of compliments.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cheaply made
The style of this necklace is lovely, however it is cheaply made. I purchased at a higher price than it is currently and returned it. I could tell the clasp would not hold up over time--it did not line up properly and the spring mechanism would catch so it would not close. At the current price it may be worth it--just don't expect it to last too long.

Not a flattering fit
I was disappointed in this tee. It was not a flattering fit on my body. It was fitted in the bust and loose everywhere else, and bunched around the hip area. It might look better on a more boyish body type.

Meh...needs something
I ordered this in both a small and a medium. I tried the small first, and it was too big in the back waistline area on me. I'm pregnant so I need room to grow on the other side, not there! It would probably look even worse on my normal body. It fit reasonably well elsewhere, except for being too long, which at 5'3" is to be expected. I almost didn't try the medium, but it was oddly more flattering; it helped that it was a kind of loose everywhere rather that just at the waist. Still, it was kind of boring, and the racerback is not usually the most flattering style on me anyway so this went back. I guess I thought I'd try it since I thought it might work with my pregnancy.

Not flattering on a large bust
I had been wanting to try a Kain tee for awhile...but I knew it would be sheer so I thought it best to try a darker color first. It was still extremely sheer. It was also very long on me (I'm 5'3"). My biggest issue with this tee, however, was the position of the draped pocket, which in the photo appeared to be a nice detail. It sat right along the bottom of my boob and kind of went out sideways...not a nice look. It would probably work better on a flatter-chested gal. Oh well...now I know Kain, at least in this style, is not for me. I'm very happy about free returns.

Order down if you're not sure
I ordered this in a medium, I don't know why I didn't get the small. I think I was afraid it would be too small in the bust (I'm 34DD) and I'm pregnant so I needed some room to grow. A small would have been fine on me (even with room to grow), but on the size chart I am more of a medium--although small often fits me best. The straps especially were too long, it would have been nice if they were adjustable. At least in the medium, with the fabric, it looked a little too nightgowny for my taste...and not in a good way.
