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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

cute shorts
These are cute, and fit true to C/E sizing which is a little bigger than most. I ended up returning them because I felt they were a little too expensive for what they were, and I wasn't sure if I really wanted white cutoffs on my currently pregnant body. I ended up buying a pair of old Levis and cutting them off myself, which had the same fit and look at a much cheaper price. If you want white these are cute, and at their current price they are a much better deal. I think I ordered a 27 since I usually take 26 in C/E and I thought they'd fit me longer pregnant and I could always wear them with a belt later.

Great basic tee
I ordered about 10 items from Shopbop during a sale and this was the only one I decided to keep. I ordered a small and a medium, and while the small fit me probably how it was supposed to, I preferred the look of the medium...it reminded me of the worn out old men's t-shirts I used to wear and love as a kid. Unfortunately they don't make those like they used to! The small was not especially fitted on me (I have a 34DD bust), but it looked like the photo. It's easy to find a fitted tee that looks good, but it's hard to find a loose one that holds up...and I'm pregnant so I thought it might fit me better in a medium through the summer. My only caveat is the price...but it helped getting it on sale.

Cutest boyfriend jeans
I love this pair of jeans. They do run large by at least one size and stretch out during wear, so if you want them loose go down one size, and if you are looking for a more fitted look go down two. I am normally a 27 and my 26's are very loose on me--they look best with a belt. I find I wear these more during the summer months with sandals, but I still wear them occasionally during colder weather cuffed just to the top of my engineer boots, or if it's not too frigid with ankle boots or heels. They are very soft and comfortable, and I may eventually order a pair in a 25 so I have the option of a more fitted look. I got mine for less than half of full price at another site, so there are better prices out there.

Classic jegging
I have these in the pitch, they are a very fitted true-to-size. I don't hand wash mine but I don't wash my jeans very often in general since I want them to last! The pockets in front are not functional...but I think this helps the front lay better on these. If you are expecting denim-weight order another pair, they are a very light twill, but warm probably due to the fabrication with some polyester. When I first got them I wasn't too sure about them, partly because of the fabric and partly because they are very fitted, and while I love skinny jeans I was not sure if the "jegging" look was right for me. I like them more when I wear them with a more voluminous top, and with boots or lower heels, because I have a curvy body type and I tend to look a little too va-va-voom if I wear them like the model in the picture. I'm sure lankier types would look great in them with anything.

Too beautiful for me
This bag is quite beautiful and made of heavy, thick leather. I decided not to keep it however because the leather was so smooth and perfect that I knew I would cry at the first scratch. Also because I am a stay-at-home mom I didn't think it would really suit my lifestyle. I ended up going with a Phillip Lim mini Pashli, but if I were still in the workforce it would have been a beautiful bag. Also I loved the iridescent hardware. I hope Sophie Hulme makes more bags with this hardware, maybe in a pebbled leather that I think I could live with...

Nice quality sunglasses
I have been looking for a pair of thick-framed black sunglasses and tried a pair of Karen Walkers and found them too big for my head. I was worried they would fall off. It may have just been the pair but when I saw these I thought I would try them instead. They are nice and snug on my average sized head, and they don't push up on my cheeks when I smile. They come with both a soft and hard case. The hard case is huge but that seems to be typical for sunglasses lately. The lenses are made by Carl Zeiss so they are high quality. I'm glad I picked these up before they get really popular and go up in price like the Karen Walkers have.

Beautiful...but earpieces are too wide
I really liked these and would have kept them if the arms were not abnormally wide. I have never had this issue with sunglasses before. These were a good inch and a half wider at the ear than any of my other sunglasses. I'm not sure if this was a problem with my pair only or if Karen Walker makes sunglasses only for gigantic heads. I may try again to see but mine went back.

Nice plaid jeans
I ordered these in my normal size 25 and they fit well. I like the slightly higher waist which should play well with a cropped sweater I also purchased. They are slightly long on me at 5'3" but I just turn the hems under. I found the plaid a bit more subtle in person, and the plaid on the pockets on my pair matched nicely, unlike the picture. I love the slightly punk look of these.
