Chic!
I have a round face and a low-bridged nose and these fit and sit nicely. I have the brown/peach, the peach is more a transparent/clear orange than the opaque peach they appear in the photo. They are a nice neutral that will go with most outfits.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Nice glasses, didn't work for me
I like MbyMJ glasses, and I was excited that these glasses were offered with polarized lenses. They are truly oversized and do have good peripheral coverage, and will flatter most face shapes. The Dark Havana frames are a very dark brown, and look almost black when worn, so that was one minus for me since I wanted medium brown glasses. The glasses look better when viewed on the side/profile, but the gold detail paired with the plastic frames is a tad cheesy when seen face-on. Also, Oakley Asian fit glasses work well for my round face and lower nose bridge, and these glasses did not quite work; the lenses sat too close to my eyes so they fogged up easily.

Cleavage & narrow toe box
As usual, beautiful and well-made, as expected from Loeffler Randall. Darker color from the two tones is slightly more brown than pictured. Although true to size ( I wear a 9 in the Matilde boot), toe box is very narrow and vamp is short, exposing a lot of toe cleavage. It will probably make the wearer's heel slip out of the back eventually also.

Knees stretched out very badly
Really cute style, nice twist on regular jeans in a soft, stretchy but thin fabric. Got these in the Harley wash, but the fabric content is the same as the ones shown. My usual size is between 26 and 27, and got these in 27 because 26 wasn't available. Because the fabric is so stretchy, the 26 would have been better, but I thought I could deal with it with a belt. They were fine until, after about 3-4 wears, I washed them. They stretched out horribly around the knees, and just below the waist at the back. I noticed this is where there was whiskering/fading. So sad because they look so silly with baggy knees now.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

The Ultimate Classic Flat Boot
Gorgeous gorgeous leather, elegant shape. Despite being a "plain" black boot, I've received numerous compliments because they are so obviously well crafted and timelessly chic. True to size, although they do not fit perfectly out of the box - these are the kind of shoes that are intended to form to your feet. I wore these twice then took them to the cobbler to rubber sole the bottom and start the stretching process so that the shoes would crease nicely when they started to break in.They actually pinched a LOT the first 5 times I wore them, but now fit perfectly.

Fun, bright & comfortable - just not me
As indicated in Shopbop's very helpful description, these are about 1/2 size larger than my usual size, so I reviewed them as "True to Size/As Expected" since I expected them to be that way. I usually wear a US Women's 9 in most shoes, and got these in an 8 1/2, which were perfect - the right amount of roominess for a sneaker, although my heel slipped just a bit if the laces were not tied down tightly. The leather squeaks a bit - maybe this will go away after they are broken in. The height is very comfortable and the shoes don't look wide when worn. Because they are so bright optic white, and there is so much of that huge expanse of white other than the gold laces and gum soles, they are very eye catching - a little too much for this mom of 3. They are adorable, almost cartoonish-looking, and if I was maybe 10 years younger I could rock these - but at $200 they are too impractical for me, even though I felt otherwise when hitting that "order" button .

Magic Pants
I usually wear a 27/28 or 4/6 in most pants (thick middle, straight hips), and got these in a 6 for the gray color since the 4 had sold out. They fit as expected for a 6 in pants for me- a tad large, but at least not too tough a fix for a tailor. These pants manage to be simultaneously comfy and room yet slimming , and flattering in the rear as well(hence the title of the review). The gray color seems to have a tinge of green, so not as a flat neutral as a slate gray. Since the pants are a soft (but not sloppy) cotton twill, they are not quite suitable for a formal work setting, but definintely for a business casual environment.

Didn't work out.
I tried these in a 26, since I usually wear a 28 or 27. Pro: nice, substantial fabric, lightweight but not flimsy; slightly darker khaki with a tinge of green. Con: unflattering on a thicker-waisted averagish figure.They managed to be loose on the waist but snug around my mid-sized calf, resulting in a bit of a balloon appearance around the thigh. I think this can be attributed to having both a drawstring and a very flexible elastic waist. They came cuffed, and did look better worn that way (I am 5'6"), but I am sending back.

Pretty pajama-like pants
I usually wear a US 4/6, 27/28 in pants, and the S in these were good. I am 5'6", and the length hits at my ankle. These pants are fully lined in poly, which is nice for opacity, but beware you will need static spray since there will be friction with the silk shell. Nice deep pockets; they are lightweight pants so you can't keep keys or a wallet in them all day, but generous space if, like me, you like just to be able to stick your hands in them for some warmth. Nice pants for spring or if you work indoors.
