Runs TTS
Most Tucker blouses run huge - if you typically size down in Tucker, make sure you get your normal (non-Tucker) blouse size in this. The print was cute, but I wasn't a huge fan of the cut of this blouse.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Flattering and warm for fall
This dress is super flattering, and the wool has a nice feel - it's not itchy at all. I swear it's a bit see-through in the skirt part, but I've asked multiple people when I've worn it and everyone I've asked has told me that it's fine and you can't see anything. . . A perfect dress for fall!

Unflattering
I have another DVF sweater wrap dress that I adore, and I thought this one would be similar, but it was a huge disappointment. Even though the size was right, the dress hung poorly and I had a terrible time keeping the dress closed enough to be decent. It looked frumpy and ill-fitting, and no amount of adjusting made it any better. I've never had such trouble with a DVF wrap dress before - I guess it must be the fabric?

Great sandals - true to size
Regarding fit: I have very wide feet, and typically wear a 7.5-8 in heels, and an 8- 8.5 in sandals. A 39 in these was perfect, though just barely wide enough. Other pairs of K Jacques that I've tried on have been too narrow (even if i sized up to a 40, at which size they were still too narrow in addition to being much too long), but these were fine, so fat-footed ladies like myself might want to try this pair, even if others from this brand haven't fit well. The sandals themselves are exceptionally well-made and were comfortable from the first time I wore them. I've had them for a few months, and they only look better as they wear. With an occasional trip to the cobbler for resoling, these shoes look & feel like they will last through a number of summers - if any sandals can possibly be worth the upwards of 200-some-odd dollars, this is it.

Cute print
This bag is made of a heavier canvas than I had originally expected, and the prints on the inside and outside are really cute. I got the yellow and grey one, and the part that looks white is actually a very pale blue. I figure this will help it keep from looking dirty as quickly. It fits everything I need (including a sweater) without being too huge, and the adjustable straps are nice. I've worn it a few times and it hasn't picked up much dirt/ grime, but my one concern is that it's going to look gross after a short while, as canvas can be hard to clean. The canvas seems heavy enough that it could handle light spot cleaning, and it didn't spot when I water tested a corner of it, but I'm still a little nervous about the dye on the fabric running or something. Perhaps something to think about if you tend to be hard on your bags.

Not for long torsos
I am 5'6" and I typically wear a S/XS, but I have a long waist, so I ordered a M. The medium was simultaneously too small and too large. The romper was too wide, but didn't come up high enough to cover my chest. If you're very short or have a short torso, this might fit, but otherwise, I'd avoid it. The snaps at the crotch were also nearly impossible to get unsnapped.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Runs large
I typically wear a small, but decided to size down to an XS in this sweater; it's still a very generous fit even in the smaller size. The color is definitely a bright red-orange, though looks more like a true red on my computer screen. I really dislike all these hi-low hems that Vince has been doing, but on this sweater it's more subtle than on other tops I've tried, and it just looks like a split hem.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Arms way too tight
The shirt is cute and the fabric and print are nice. Unfortunately (as mentioned by another reviewer) the cuffs are so tight that I couldn't push up the sleeves, and the shirt was just too large and billowy to leave them unbuttoned - it looked sloppy to me. I'm not a large person, and don't think I have particularly large forearms, so I would caution all but the skinniest-armed people that this probably isn't the blouse for you.

Classic DVF
I ordered the last one in my size, and the dress that arrived from shopbop.com had a defect - one of the seams was left unfinished and you could see the interfacing all along the skirt - but this dress was so cute that I contemplated taking it in to the tailor and keeping it, anyway. The fit is like most DVF wraps; for me, it's typically a size smaller than her other dresses. I'm 5'6" and I would have had to take it up to wear it with flats. I was initially concerned that the dress would be frumpy, but it somehow manages to cover everything up and still be very sexy. Ultimately, though, I couldn't justify spending so much money (even on sale) on a dress that needed significant tailoring, so I sent it back :(

Cute blouse, LOW neckline
This blouse has a very flowy fit and the arm holes are quite large. I'm typically a 4 on top and my bra size is 34C, and I sized down to an XS because my bra was very visible under my arms and the neckline was just plain indecent with the S. Even in a size smaller, the neckline dips very low (without a camisole, it's too low for work) and the arm holes are still questionable (I have to wear a black bra, and am hoping that it's not totally obvious when I lift my arms), but it looks good on. After working around these fit issues, it's a well-made blouse. It looks great left loose over skinnies, or you can twist it and tuck it in to the back of your jeans for a more fitted look with wide leg or bootcut jeans.
