Hot!!!!
The most exp purchase I've ever made for a clothing! Aghhh, I first bought Helmut Lang leather leggings, but found them to be long for someone who is 5'3/163cm like me. I tried the hem folded, but looks scrunchy and not flattering enough. So, I ended up returned both size 2 and 4. I've been patiently waiting for the next new leather pants from any brands. Then, found this ALC one. At first, I wasn't sure due to the waist band style and greenish brownish color, not black. I took the chance and I'm very happy with my purchase. It runs true to size to snug fitted. If my legs were skinnier, I can fit in this nicely nor too tight. But, this leather stretches. In the beginning very fitted. If you have nice rear, I suggest go up one size. I have small bum, but big on thighs/legs area. Bought size 4. J Brand skinnies in 27, Siwy 27, Current Elliott 26. Made in USA, thumbs up. H Lang and Vince leather are made in China with the similar price. Of course, I'd go for ALC!!!!

nice dress
I bought it in beige color from Revolve. Shopbop doesn't sell it. To be honest, this dress looks better on me than the shopbop model. I'm serious, I'm only 5'3, 34 A bust and got it in size 2 my normal James Perse size. Perfect, it's still fitted but not too skin tight, yikes. I personally think that greyish blue color is ugly. Get the black one instead and pair it with some turquoise accessories, voila. Also don't forget your mini fringe bag. I actually got compliments from boys while wearing it. You just need to know how to coordinate it with the right jewelry and bag plus wedges sandals.

French espadriles
I want a nicer summer shoes, rather than the typical Toms. Found this and excited, it's made in France and not commercial, yet in the US. I'm a US 7.5 Bought these in size 38, my usual Euro size. Glad, I didn't follow Shopbop sizing rec. It definitely run 1/2 small. I'm sure these shoes need to break in first to get that comfort. It's narrow in the front and I have normal medium width. A bit painful to wear still, just like my leopard Coach flats that overtime will break it and stretch out. I'm still thinking of keeping them or not. I think size 39 would be too big.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

ok
It's cute, reminds me of Isabel Marant sweater that I couldn't get my hands on. But, IM is cuter and cozier. This sweater is true to size, not baggy like A Wang cuts. But, I do feel $275 is steep for something like this Made in China. Well, it's Rag&Bone. I'm going to return it and just wait til it goes on sale. I'm 34 A got in S.

Love siwy!
This reminds me of Isabel Marant tie dye jeans with softer version and great for petite gals. As always with Siwy, the fit is great. The color is perfect for spring and can be worn long term, not just a trendy piece.

Good
Finally I got my hands on these famous boots. Personally, they are good, OK, doesn't wow me like the crowds did. It's comfortable and nicely padded. But, if you walk for more than 4 or 5 hrs, you will get tired. Although, they don't give me blisters or scratch, etc. I'm 5'3, I wished the opening is lower to give me an illusion of longer legs. When I pair them with dresses or shorts, my legs look short.

reminds me of Bali....
The material is soft, perfect on warm days and beach. Although I do think it's a bit pricey, cos you are paying for VIX brand. Made in Bali. As you know Balinese cotton is very soft and light. I used to bought lots of dresses and pajamas when I was there years back. Can't wait to go back. I'm 5'3, with wedges, it's perfect, not too long either.

loving T strap
Comfortable, not clunky to walk. I wished they also make this in regular wedges or regular platforms style, instead of FLATFORMS. Leather is soft, but not buttery soft that just molded to your ankle. Overall is good.

cozy sweater
I received this, but it was obviously worn and returned by someone who's wearing a very strong sweet smell parfume left on the sweater. Shopbop should pay attention and inspected carefully to returned items before resell them. I do like the fabric, but not liking dolmain sleeves anymore. It was so early 2000 style. Looks great like the first picture when the sleeves rolled up. I'm 34 A, 5'3 height, sweater fits just perfect. But, I returned it. Not so worth the price for what it is.

returned
Too low rise, uncomfortable for my age and taste now. Waist is roomy, yes, go down one size. Returned it, because I do feel this jeans is getting too commercial and common. I'll get bored soon after few wears. Ppl easily recognize that this is C E jeans that everyone wearing. As much as I love leopard, I just think eckkk.....I preferred minimalist denim, no logo, no patch, no embroidery, exception Siwy jeans. I LOVE SIWY cuts. I've tried C E jeans in the past, but none fits well. So, is this one. It's not for my body. I'm sticking to Siwy and J brand still, AG not bad.
