Unusually shaped...
I have the Bec and Bridge reversible V dress in a number of variations - the rippled 'Snake Charmer', the regular stretch jersey fabric and now this ribbed edition. I have a slim, athletic build and usually take a US 2 in clothing (size 24 jeans) however I've needed to size up with this particular dress to avoid suffocation. The problem with this is that the hip area in this is quite generous meaning that while it fits snuggly up top it is a little loose in the lower body... Not sure how I feel about that side of it, particularly at over $200. The fabric is gorgeous on this particular variation of the dress.

Fun party dress
I bought this dress in black for a beach holiday and it was just the right thing for evening in a hot climate. Yes, it was super long but it was easily shortened and its simple jersey-like material made it easy to pack, hang and wash. I sized down as other reviewers have recommended - I am usually an Aussie 6/XS so I ordered the XXS and it fit perfectly. I am small in the boob dept so I didn't have the cleavage issues some reviewers have noted. That said, I still found I needed to wear a bra or popped on nipple guards. Bra wise, I wore an off the shelf lacy cup with a thin band and a very small fabric strip running between the cups that I happened to have at home. The upper part of the cup peeked out, showing some of the lace. The lace contrast against the jersey actually looked amazing and made the dress look more classy than if I'd had the bra concealed. Would I buy it again? Yes, probably, even though I think the price is a little high for what is essentially a long jersey sheath.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Nice boots
I was thrilled when these boots went on sale and chose my usual 39 (I have three other pairs of Rag and Bone boots and two of them are size 39) . While these ones aren't huge on me, they aren't exactly snug either... I'm a bit concerned by this as it's 40C degrees here in Melbourne Australia today and so I'm worried that these boots might feel like boats when my feet are less warm/swollen. As for the 'Made in China' part, that's a real bummer - both because at MSRP $795 one would expect European manufacturing and also because it is contrary to what was on the Shopbop website. The quality of the box is certainly inferior to those of my other Rag and Bone boots came in but the boots themselves seem pretty well made so they look like they should last well. Nevertheless, I am on the fence re keeping/returning them.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Pretty swimsuit
Really pretty bikini top - well made too with interesting rouching detail. The colour isn't great on fair skin however - they make me look washed out. Sadly, I will probably return them...

Very cute
I've purchased this and put it away for my 10 year old daughter for Xmas. It's cute and fun and a nice summer accessory. It would only suit a very small wrist however and the letters will no doubt stretch out and become illegible when worn.

Cheap 'n cheerful
I love throwing on this top over a boob tube and skinny jeans - it's fun, loose and the stud detailing makes it that little bit different. It isn't exactly top-end stuff though so you wouldn't want to pay full price. I see it lasting me one season and then falling to bits. Discounted, it's good value.

Love DL1961
I love these jeans. The colour is SOO fun and, as with most DL1961 jeans, the cut is flattering. Fit true to size - don't size up as they will be too large. I've been stopped in the street over these babies. At 50% off, they're too good to pass up!

Just right
I needed long warm socks to wear under skinny jeans and these fit the bill perfectly. They stayed up fine and seem to wash well. On sale, they are an even better deal. Snap them up!

Cute!
I love this bracelet - chunky and bright, it's the perfect bold accessory. I wore it with a black leather dress and strappy heels it finished my outfit perfectly. Would look equally good with black jeans and a funky top. I have a very small wrist (15cm) and it fits me perfectly. Girls with an average to large wrist may find it a bit too snug. A definite buy, particularly on sale.
