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.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

cute shorts
These are cute, and fit true to C/E sizing which is a little bigger than most. I ended up returning them because I felt they were a little too expensive for what they were, and I wasn't sure if I really wanted white cutoffs on my currently pregnant body. I ended up buying a pair of old Levis and cutting them off myself, which had the same fit and look at a much cheaper price. If you want white these are cute, and at their current price they are a much better deal. I think I ordered a 27 since I usually take 26 in C/E and I thought they'd fit me longer pregnant and I could always wear them with a belt later.

Meh...needs something
I ordered this in both a small and a medium. I tried the small first, and it was too big in the back waistline area on me. I'm pregnant so I need room to grow on the other side, not there! It would probably look even worse on my normal body. It fit reasonably well elsewhere, except for being too long, which at 5'3" is to be expected. I almost didn't try the medium, but it was oddly more flattering; it helped that it was a kind of loose everywhere rather that just at the waist. Still, it was kind of boring, and the racerback is not usually the most flattering style on me anyway so this went back. I guess I thought I'd try it since I thought it might work with my pregnancy.

Not flattering on a large bust
I had been wanting to try a Kain tee for awhile...but I knew it would be sheer so I thought it best to try a darker color first. It was still extremely sheer. It was also very long on me (I'm 5'3"). My biggest issue with this tee, however, was the position of the draped pocket, which in the photo appeared to be a nice detail. It sat right along the bottom of my boob and kind of went out sideways...not a nice look. It would probably work better on a flatter-chested gal. Oh well...now I know Kain, at least in this style, is not for me. I'm very happy about free returns.

Order down if you're not sure
I ordered this in a medium, I don't know why I didn't get the small. I think I was afraid it would be too small in the bust (I'm 34DD) and I'm pregnant so I needed some room to grow. A small would have been fine on me (even with room to grow), but on the size chart I am more of a medium--although small often fits me best. The straps especially were too long, it would have been nice if they were adjustable. At least in the medium, with the fabric, it looked a little too nightgowny for my taste...and not in a good way.

Great basic tee
I ordered about 10 items from Shopbop during a sale and this was the only one I decided to keep. I ordered a small and a medium, and while the small fit me probably how it was supposed to, I preferred the look of the medium...it reminded me of the worn out old men's t-shirts I used to wear and love as a kid. Unfortunately they don't make those like they used to! The small was not especially fitted on me (I have a 34DD bust), but it looked like the photo. It's easy to find a fitted tee that looks good, but it's hard to find a loose one that holds up...and I'm pregnant so I thought it might fit me better in a medium through the summer. My only caveat is the price...but it helped getting it on sale.

Great jeans!
I finally got a pair of Legacy jeans in my correct size (27), and I love them! I purchased the red leather, which is definitely more of the plum color pictured (this is what I was hoping for). The sheen is not too much so they are wearable for day. I think they will look great for spring with pale colored tops & shoes, and for now they look great with my winter gear. They are probably too heavy for the heat of summer but I never wear jeans then anyway. I love that they hug my curves all the way down to the ankles. I'm 5'3" and most "jeggings" are loose on me around the ankles. These do bunch a little but are still fitted which is nice. They feel very tight and hard to get on at first, but they conform to my body and are very comfortable to wear. They hold me in and smooth me out a bit where needed (around my upper thighs), which is not something I get from leggings. I will definitely buy R&S Legacy again!
