Beautiful, fun shoe
I ordered these in my normal 8.5 during the big event sale, and desperately wanted to make them work, but I found them a bit small. I sadly returned them and suddenly a 9 became available. Shopbop was kind enough to send me the 9 at the same price. The 9 may eventually become a bit loose but I can always remedy that with an insole or heel strip. The color is beautiful, heel height is just high enough but still comfortable, and the padding is great.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Unfortunately not for me
Generally shorts with a skirtlike flare are most flattering on me, and these turned out to be more straight. They would probably look better on a less curvy body type. They did seem to be a great quality for the price.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

nice bracelet...runs small
If you have larger wrists you probably will not be able to wrap this bracelet five times. My wrists are fairly small and I have mine on the loosest setting, and it's fairly tight wrapped five times. The leather on this one is slightly metallic, and the beads are very sparkly. I have the garnet mix version, and it will go well with pinks, purples, burgundy, gray or black.

good idea but didn't work for me
I mostly bought this to use as a cardigan but liked the idea of versatility, but it didn't work as well as I'd hoped. As a cardigan the sweater unfortunately wrinkled up under the arms across my back, and it was very long and tentlike as a pullover, though I am only 5'3". I thought it might look okay with a belt but since the cardigan version did not work I decided to send it back. I did order a P/S which was plenty big as a pullover, but maybe the M/L would have been better as a cardigan and not have pulled across the back--but since I wanted it to work both ways I won't be exchanging it.

Look more expensive than they are
I ordered this shoe in an 8.5, my usual size. Boutique 9 is a Nine West subsidiary and those usually run big but no 8s were available, so I hoped they would work. When I first put them on they scrunched my toes, which is par for the course for these kind of shoes. I put them on the stretcher and they were much better. The front part of my foot is a little wide so narrow-footed ladies may want to size down. The suede on these is nice and soft with a fine nap, comparable to more expensive shoes. I tried similar styles in Kate Spade and Elizabeth and James and neither was as comfortable as these. It should be noted the heel on these in 8.5 was actually 4 3/4" so you may want to consider if that heel height is appropriate for you. I'll probably only wear them out to dinner so they should be good for me.

Good top but color not for me
I ordered this top in a M in truffle, after reading prior reviews. I am currently 8 months pregnant, 34DD, and a M was a good size--it would also work non-pregnant since it is so stretchy. I did not have an issue with the sleeves or length since they scrunch up nicely--and I'm only 5'3". My issue with this top is the color. The truffle is darker in person and just kind of dull and not good for me. I would definitely order this top again in a better color--but right now none of the colors available in medium are appealing to me. It is a little sheer but not bad with a good skintone bra, I'm not sure how this top would be in lighter colors however.

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.

Ordered wrong size...
I was looking to replace another pair of CE boyfriend in size 26 which had fallen apart, and decided to try a 25 since that pair had gotten a little loose on me over time. Unfortunately the 25 was more fitted in the legs than I wanted. For reference, I am normally a 27 in jeans so these do run big. I have a pair of AG boyfriend jeans, size 27, which are more fitted and flattering, but these CEs look better a little looser on me. More boyish body types will probably want to go 2 sizes down, otherwise if you're curvy one size is probably good. The holes on these are not too big which is nice, they are just like the picture. I will probably reorder in 26 next time there is a sale.
