It's s&b vie, not sass & bide
This was such a cute top and I got complimented several times. However, shopbop described this as a Sass & Bide top, when really it's part of their diffusion line s&b vie (as it says on the tag of the actual item). I now wonder how many of the items attributed to sass and bide on shopbop are also s&b vie. This misrepresentation took away a good part of my trust and enjoyment with the shopbop shopping experience.

Almost up to Frye's usual high standards
These boots were a bit larger than I expected. I thought it was a big larger than a US 8. I have another pair of frye boots, which also claimed to be a true US8, and that fit fine. I had briefly considered getting a 7.5, but I was worried that half a size smaller may mean trouble getting my foot in (no zip or lace-up). It's quite roomier at the heel area. but otherwise, it's a comfortable height for a boot, which would go seamless from day-to-night. Like all of frye's boots, they are well made, however I did think there wasn't much padding in the footbed, and the boot was a little slippery. so I'd strongly suggest scratching up the soles for more grip. It also didn't impress me as other frye shoes I've had previously. They came up to to mid calf for me. and look good with blue jeans. I had originally intended them for some of my coloured denims... but they looked just a tad weird with my salmon-coloured Cheap Mondays.

worth my hard earned cash! LOVE!
These boots are of fabulous quality. The leather is supple, but firm enough to provide support (and with 3 3/4 inch heels, you'll need all the support you can get). The insoles are well padded so your feet are cushioned when you walk. The shoes were perfectly stable, and this as well as comfort and walkability is so important to me. I am a public transport commuter, but I walked very happily in them all day (okay so wearing them two days in a row pushed my luck). I don't do high heels very well at the best of time, but I'm looking forward to the next time I get to wear this. This will make winter outfits just a little bit more fun.

very narrow shaft
These boots fit fine in the feet, but it runs extremely small over the calves. I have 'normal' sized calves, that is I've never had any trouble fitting in boot, until I met this one. You'd have to have remarkably slender (indeed then I am envious) to get into these boots breezily. They simply wouldn't zip up. And I noticed too late that on one side, the zip was not even, which caused me to damage the zip slightly, and couldn't return the boots. So I took them to a trusted shoe repairer, who is altering the boot and stretching it out for me. He assures he the leather is fantastic quality, and is quite thick, and should stretch well. so fingers crossed!
