Shoulder Shouldn't
Joie is one of my favorite brands for silk tanks and soft sweaters in stripes or basic colors so I ordered this expecting it to be along the lines of what I've grown to love about Joie's fit and style. I love the color and the material, but the fit is a mess. It's much shorter than I expected (I think "cropped" should be in the item's title) and it's impossible, short of pinning it to your bra straps, to keep this sweater on your shoulders. When one side slips off your shoulder, okay... when both sides slip off, not okay as it's a short ride from falling off both shoulders to sliding down over your chest. I'm keeping it because it will work well for layering, but at this price, it should be able to stand on its own. Did I mention I love the color?

Endless Love
I own several pairs of this particular style and highly similar styles by J Brand. They're so perfect, you could truly wear them every single day. I got my first pair about two years ago and since that first pair, these have been my go-to brand for every style of denim I could ever want.

I Can't Get Enough!
This James Perse tank is hands-down my favorite layering piece. I own so many of these in basic black and white, but I can never have enough of them. The white can get slightly dingy (especially at the rim of the underarms), but I take my white tanks about every three months, let the washing machine fill up with cool water and then add two capfuls of straight Clorex. I soak them for 15 minutes, run two rinse cycles, and they come out looking like brand new. I find that these run smaller than expected so I get a 3 (I'm 140 lbs, 5'10, and a C cup) to avoid the tank riding up to expose my stomach or riding down to expose too much cleavage. If you go up one size, you'll never have to deal with the annoying roll up of the hem. One note of caution: Be very careful to make sure this is the tank you order because I've tried other James Perse tanks and this is the only one that doesn't stretch out. This specific one holds its shape beautifully and once you try it, you'll be devoted.

Subtle Sexy
I wore these to an early evening cocktail party, paired with a black ALC halter top. These pants are gorgeous. They are sheer, but not exposing, and they're incredibly sophisticated. Unlike almost every other black item of clothing I own, this black actually looks good with different shades of black. They look delicate and floaty when on, but the sheer material is actually much sturdier than it appears in the photo. I'll definitely wear these several more times and given how lightweight they are, this is a rare seasonless item. These skimmed the floor with three inch heels (I'm 5'10) so if you're on the petite side, you'll need a good tailor or super high heels. Very expensive, but worth it if you're looking for a beautifully tailored piece that you can mix and match with just about any item in your closet.

INCREDIBLE Statement Jacket!
SoCal rarely gets cold enough for an actual coat, but we're always on the lookout for that perfect jacket to throw on for chilly days and nights. I fell in love with this Cut 25 jacket the moment I saw it; I purchased it at another retailer before it was available on Shopbop. There are so many cool, unique features to this jacket including 3/4 sleeves, double-layers of different materials, a wool collar, and a trenchcoat-like back panel. This coat is so chic. It's definitely my best purchase of the season; can't say enough positive things about this one-of-a-kind statement jacket!

Heavy Rotation
I've worn this sweater a few times and whether it's with jeans and boots or a miniskirt and flats, it looks good. Solo, layered, front-tucked, sleeves down, sleeves pushed up... no matter what you do this lightweight sweater is snuggly soft and super chic. It will definitely be in heavy rotation for the next several months.

My New Favorite, Wear Everyday Boots
These boots have the "it" factor in spades. The fit is outstanding and unlike flat boots that can make you feel heavy and clunky, these are so flattering on the legs and a work with practically any outfit. They're even the perfect contrast to a super girly skirt and blouse. Extra bonus: they're already distressed looking so if you're rough on shoes, it won't matter; they'll still look good. These are my favorite new "go to" want-to-wear-them-every-day boots!

Ideal for a Thin, High Confidence Day
I love the color of this dress and it is so beautiful against pale skin. I've only been able to wear it once because not only is it super short, it's also very fitted and very unforgiving. It's ideal when you're having a super thin day and are working some major confidence. This is a good investment piece as it will wear really well across multiple seasons and years. So feminine and pretty.

Uptown, Downtown, All-Around
I love to take a luxe look like this skirt offers and dress it down with a layered tank, striped cotton sweater, and flats; giving it a downtown look maximizes its wearability. I swapped my day wear for a Vince silk tank and heels and it immediately gave it a more uptown feel. The sequins wear surprisingly well, too. I loved the look of this skirt, but what convinced me to buy it was reading another customer's positive review. She was right! It's a great piece.

Raspberry Wellies!
Hunter wellies are always a winner. I have two pairs already (black and dark purple), but this is a bright berry color that is a perfect pop of color on a gloomy day. I love the fit and look of these boots so much, I sometimes wear them even on a brisk, sunny day.
