soft, subtle, versatile
The first thing I noticed when trying this dress on is how incredibly soft it is. I've always been a fan of rayon and fortunately, this dress is double layered/thick throughout so it is very forgiving. My ONLY hang up with this dress is that the draping makes me look slightly hippy/wider than I am. At 5'1 96 pounds that is pretty hard to do, so I don't know how this would look on some of the curvier girls out there. The color is such a subtle, silvery gray that I really love. It looks great with white heels and a leather jacket. You can also scrunch it a little to make it shorter/sexier or wear it longer (hits a little above the knees for me). For the record, I ordered a P. Also, great price on this one, glad I snagged it!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Deep V means DEEP
The V neck of this shirt is so intense that it almost leaves my entire collar bone exposed. The problem with it for me is that not only is the V too deep where it's showing all the goods but that it's so wide it barely covers me (unlike the model). For the price of this shirt and how it's cut it wasn't worth it at all to me. This shirt is probably better on someone who isn't as petite.

Off-white, not bright
This is not white, it's more of an off-white, which to me looked dingy and similar to my white t-shirts I've worn too much. It was incredibly soft and comfortable but overall just really did not look like a $98 shirt at all. I expect this would be much better in the black but the 'white' is pretty sheer and you can't get by with just a nude bra under it. The material is also very thin and not as I expected.

Cute Summer Shoe
I got these in a size 7 in white. They are true to size, although my toes do push a little over the edge and I am always a size 7. They are really flattering but I have to admit LAMB quality basically never matches the price tag. There are a few gluing mishaps here and there but not enough to notice unless you scrutinize. I can tell the front is going to rub my toes but otherwise the comfort level is acceptable. The heel does seem a tiny bit unstable but we'll see if they hold up. These are one of those pairs of shoes that are sexy but still classy enough. I'm happy with them!

It is what it is
I'm 5'1 96 pounds and I ordered the XS in Platinum. The color is a nice light gray and the material is extremely soft and comfortable. I can get away with wearing it as a dress because of my height but it's definitely something I would have worn more in college if you catch my drift...As a top it works well but less so as a skirt because it is not as tight to the body when worn that way. I wish it had a shelf bra to keep a strapless supported but it doesn't, it's literally a tube of fabric. It's semi-sheer and at some angles you can see underwear. I'd feel best wearing a long sweater over it if used as a dress. Overall it's a decent staple, but I'm not sure I would purchase another one.

Nothing Special
This is exactly as pictured except I don't think the quality is as great as it should be for the price. It was just very average and wasn't worth keeping. It also looks very small on the wrist and doesn't make much of an impression. I returned it.

Over-priced but SO comfortable
I was terrified of the length of this thing because I am so short but fortunately it can be manipulated/scrunched into varying lengths. The racer-back part of the dress was a little bit too big for me (5'1 96 pounds) but hopefully it will shrink. The material is very light weight but enough to be 'there' if that makes sense. The dress (white) is slightly see through but a nude bra is virtually invisible under it and if you are short you can strategically scrunch it so that you can't see any underwear underneath it. I tend to do the same with my American Apparel dresses. I feel this dress is incredibly over-priced for what it is but due to the versatility you can achieve with the scrunching I think it's worth keeping. The fact that it's incredibly comfortable also makes it a keeper.

Just 'meh'
I'm 5'1 96 pounds and the 24s were too big. I really wanted these to fit tightly as they do on the model and Shopbop advertisements but no dice. The waist was a little too big and the legs weren't tight enough to my tastes. As for comfort these are great. If they had fit the way I wanted them to I would have kept them.

FINALLY.
Thank god I can finally end my nude shoe search. These are adorable. The color is beautiful, the height is perfect and they are comfortable. There is actually a little cushion at the foot bed that unlike Pour La Victoires does not make the shoe tighter. I own LAMB glam platforms and those are painful but these are way, way more comfortable. I agree with others that there is a slight quality issue with the leather but it didn't seem nearly as bad of an issue on the pair I received. I thought the abstract platform would look weird but it doesn't. Shopbop also agreed to credit me because I bought the shoe right before it went on sale which was amazing. Overall I am very happy with this shoe!

It is what it is
I have very small wrists and this fits well so long as I use the second snaps. It looks exactly as it appears in the picture and there isn't much else to say about it! It's a good, durable leather. The only negative is that it reeks of leather when you first get it but that's how you know it's real! Color is as pictured and it's exactly 3 inches in length. Excellent boho accessory.
