Flattering and great wash
I tried these on at a store a couple of months ago and waited for a sale to buy them ever since. It's good I waited since I lost some weight too so I went down a size to 26, and I would say these are true to size. They are a skinny style but since the leg opening is a little bigger they have a slightly different look from a legging style jean, but they are still fitted through the calf if that makes any sense. I am 5'3" and they are a good length, a little past my ankle but the wider opening sits nicely over a shoe. The distressing is just enough so these won't fall apart and they are a good normal denim weight.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Is it a top or a dress?
I am 5'3" and this was too long to be a tunic, too short to be a dress. It is also very low cut so it needs something underneath. It hangs like a sack which I expected since I wanted to wear it with a belt, but there were just too many things wrong with it to keep. The jersey was very soft but this is way too pricey for what it is.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Half size up is fine
I am updating my review after wearing these for a while. I am normally an 8.5 and ordered these in a 39 and 39.5. For reference my foot is a little wide with high arches. I was not sure but decided to keep the 39, which fit better in the length but were tight in the width. I am glad I did as now they have loosened up and are very comfortable. Quality is evident in these shoes. I did want to note that the little rods the straps attach to screw in. One of mine fell off and I just about freaked out until I realized it could be put back together. I was so glad this happened as I took them off so I did not lose the screw. So make sure your screws are tight before wear! These are the most expensive shoes I've ever bought but I am very happy with my purchase, I'm sure they will last a long time.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Almost kept these
These jeans are very lightweight and longer than I thought they would be--there was quite a bit of bunching at the hem for me. I liked the slightly dirty wash. I was a little concerned about the durability of this item since the denim is so thin and distressed. The dealbreaker for me was the fact that there was a flap of fabric hanging off in one of the distressed areas at the top of the pocket. I would try R&B again but maybe a less distressed pair--preferably one a little shorter or one I could hem less obviously.

Too boxy
I ordered this in an x-small since it was oversized, and being short these things sometimes end up too oversized. I definitely would not have gone up in size, but the sweater was still not flattering on me. You'd probably need to be very slim and flat-chested to pull this one off. I ordered the multi and the colors were beautiful.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very cute boyfriend jeans
I ordered these jeans because I wanted a more fitted boyfriend style, but fitted and cropped is not always flattering on me since I'm short and curvy, and I was concerned I would end up with the stumpy look mentioned by a prior reviewer. Shopbop's generous return policy gave me the freedom to try them out. These were very flattering because they are not too tight in the legs, even though the hip area is fitted. I found they did gap a little in the back, but not so badly as to be unflattering. They are much stiffer than most jeans these days since they don't have any spandex, but that's kind of nice, since they are less likely to stretch and lost their shape. I ordered a 27, my usual size, and at first I thought they might be too small, but after I wore them for a few minutes I realized they were fine, the fabric is just stiffer than I'm used to. I just wish they were a little cheaper.
