Not excited
I love the color of these chucks. The stitching looked great online. However, once on my feet, it didn't do anything for me. As always, Converse makes a great shoe, hence the 4 stars. Returned it to give someone else a shot.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Had higher hopes...
These earrings are lightweight, which is great but not my first priority. Quality and "assumed" size were. These earrings appeared shorter in length online. And the metal used looked cheaper than I expected. So, they went back immediately.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

One of my favorite boots
These have got to be one of my favorite boots. I got them in brown. The photo doesn't do it justice.

The straps...
The leather is sturdy but lends it a bulkier feel. What killed it for me were the straps. The handles were too short to toss the bag on my shoulders. The shoulder strap was way too long and non-adjustable. I'm 5'3" and the bag was so low it was out of reach. If the bag cost less than $75, I probably wouldn't care. But, at over $300, I couldn't make myself keep it. I returned it to give someone else a chance to love it.

Is Shopbop sizing wrong?
I was eyeballing these flats for a while and snatched them up the moment they went on sale. Love the design and quality, hence the 3 stars. But good lord when I put them on my poor feet screamed. I could barely get them on, which wasn't a deal-breaker --- leather stretches and I'm always willing to deal with it for an hour of walking/breaking it in. But the shoes were way too tight. The band stitched around the inner lining of the shoe only served to make it worse. Even if the shoe is true to EU sizing, they run small. I normally wear 7-7.5 medium and got a 37.5, which is what Shopbop said to get. Uh, yeah, no, returned. I was more than willing to try out a 38 but it's sold out. I own other Rag & Bone shoes but this is the first time the sizing was way off. Did anyone at Shopbop try these on? If yes, that person must have very narrow feet.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

So long
This would work for you if you're tall. That the dress was big overall would've been tolerable since it looks like a caftan (and caftans are traditionally loose fitting), but this dress was unbelievably long. I'm 5'3". Fabric was very nice, though. It hurt to send back.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Fantabulous!
When does Frye disappoint? Like, never. These are high, yes, but so comfy. Oh, and so sexy. Leather is soft. I got the navy. I'm going to wear these to death.

Great for work
I have worn these shoes about 5 times since I received them. I love them. They're not your run-of-the-mill booties. I love the fabric and leather combo, with the fabric lace. They jazz up any outfit. Did I say that I love them?

Designer works best with bright colors
I'm in love with this designer's flattering cuts. But with such a flowy dress, the fact that it's black doesn't work for me. Since it was black, you couldn't see the beauty in the details. I couldn't justify keeping it for that reason alone. I did love the length. Worked for me (I'm 5'3") and wouldn't have had to get it tailored. Maybe someone else will get more out of this, so I returned it.

Small on top, roomy on bottom
The arms and shoulder portions of this dress were too snug for me to keep. And, since it was snug there and I'm big chested, the dress just didn't work for me.
