Look more expensive than they are
I ordered this shoe in an 8.5, my usual size. Boutique 9 is a Nine West subsidiary and those usually run big but no 8s were available, so I hoped they would work. When I first put them on they scrunched my toes, which is par for the course for these kind of shoes. I put them on the stretcher and they were much better. The front part of my foot is a little wide so narrow-footed ladies may want to size down. The suede on these is nice and soft with a fine nap, comparable to more expensive shoes. I tried similar styles in Kate Spade and Elizabeth and James and neither was as comfortable as these. It should be noted the heel on these in 8.5 was actually 4 3/4" so you may want to consider if that heel height is appropriate for you. I'll probably only wear them out to dinner so they should be good for me.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Good top but color not for me
I ordered this top in a M in truffle, after reading prior reviews. I am currently 8 months pregnant, 34DD, and a M was a good size--it would also work non-pregnant since it is so stretchy. I did not have an issue with the sleeves or length since they scrunch up nicely--and I'm only 5'3". My issue with this top is the color. The truffle is darker in person and just kind of dull and not good for me. I would definitely order this top again in a better color--but right now none of the colors available in medium are appealing to me. It is a little sheer but not bad with a good skintone bra, I'm not sure how this top would be in lighter colors however.

Big and long sleeves!
I should have ordered an x-small in this sweater. I am currently 8 months pregnant, 34DD, and the small was big on me. The sleeves are way too long (almost to my fingertips) and loose (I'm 5'3") so my only option would be to roll them which kind of ruins the look. I imagine an x-small would be better but I don't even know if that would solve the sleeve issue...this may only be a good sweater for taller people, as the sleeves even look a little long on the model. The knit is nice and soft, however, and especially on sale it was a good price, so if you're tall this may be good for you.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Not bad...but not what I expected
Many Ray-Bans are made in Italy so I was disappointed to see these are made in China. I ordered the gray color and I think I thought the lenses would have a bluish tint but they're just gray. They also are a little smaller on my face than I expected, and they sit right on my cheekbones so when I smile they push up (this is a common problem with sunglasses for me). I only keep one pair of sunnies at a time to wear regularly so they have to be perfect, and these just didn't do it for me.

Pretty belt
This belt is beautiful, as it should be for the price. It helps to get it on sale. It should be noted, however, that the size range is more limited than indicated by the measurements posted by Shopbop. I ordered a small and there's no way it would fit up to a 30" waist. I am currently pregnant with less than a month to go and needed something to look forward to--but I measured the belt to make sure it would fit me when I'm normal again. On the loosest hole I think the biggest it would fit is 29", maybe even a little less since it has to overlap. There are only 5 holes (4" total apart) and the difference in each hole is spread out over three wraps so each hole does not make much difference. This is definitely a waist belt, you won't have enough leeway to wear it as both a waist and hip belt. If you're not sure assume the belt will only fit the smaller end of the range in the size description.

Ordered wrong size...
I was looking to replace another pair of CE boyfriend in size 26 which had fallen apart, and decided to try a 25 since that pair had gotten a little loose on me over time. Unfortunately the 25 was more fitted in the legs than I wanted. For reference, I am normally a 27 in jeans so these do run big. I have a pair of AG boyfriend jeans, size 27, which are more fitted and flattering, but these CEs look better a little looser on me. More boyish body types will probably want to go 2 sizes down, otherwise if you're curvy one size is probably good. The holes on these are not too big which is nice, they are just like the picture. I will probably reorder in 26 next time there is a sale.

Runs very big even for Fryes
I have two other pairs of Frye boots (Engineer and Carmen) in 8.5 and they fit comfortably but well. This pair is longer in the foot. I would definitely size down. A half size down would probably work for me, but my foot is a little wide so narrow footed people may want to consider going down a full size. Other than that, the finish on the boot is beautiful--maybe a little more brown in real life and I was expecting more gray. It is slouchy which is cute. The front part of the sole is thicker than I expected, giving it a slightly clunky look. My brown Carmen three-strap is more flattering and will go with almost everything this boot would go with so I probably won't reorder if my size comes in.

Cute but a little heavy looking
I have tried these boots in both the 12R and 8R versions. I am 5'3" and the 8R were better for me since the 12R hit in an awkward place right at the bottom of the calf muscle and kind of made me look like I had cankles. Taller gals may prefer the 12R (I sold mine on ebay and almost recovered what I paid). These can look a little heavy and clunky but are cute when worn right--they're just not quite as versatile as I'd hoped. If you have a high arch like me they are a little difficult to get on as the prior reviewer described, but once on they are perfectly comfortable. I live in a snowy area and these are great for slushy days--and they hold up beautifully to nasty weather. They look great with boyfriend jeans and leggings, but not so good with skinnies where there's any bunching at the ankle (since I'm short most of my jeans bunch). Still a worthy purchase and get tons of compliments.

Cheaply made
The style of this necklace is lovely, however it is cheaply made. I purchased at a higher price than it is currently and returned it. I could tell the clasp would not hold up over time--it did not line up properly and the spring mechanism would catch so it would not close. At the current price it may be worth it--just don't expect it to last too long.

Not a flattering fit
I was disappointed in this tee. It was not a flattering fit on my body. It was fitted in the bust and loose everywhere else, and bunched around the hip area. It might look better on a more boyish body type.
