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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

Cutest boyfriend jeans
I love this pair of jeans. They do run large by at least one size and stretch out during wear, so if you want them loose go down one size, and if you are looking for a more fitted look go down two. I am normally a 27 and my 26's are very loose on me--they look best with a belt. I find I wear these more during the summer months with sandals, but I still wear them occasionally during colder weather cuffed just to the top of my engineer boots, or if it's not too frigid with ankle boots or heels. They are very soft and comfortable, and I may eventually order a pair in a 25 so I have the option of a more fitted look. I got mine for less than half of full price at another site, so there are better prices out there.

Classic jegging
I have these in the pitch, they are a very fitted true-to-size. I don't hand wash mine but I don't wash my jeans very often in general since I want them to last! The pockets in front are not functional...but I think this helps the front lay better on these. If you are expecting denim-weight order another pair, they are a very light twill, but warm probably due to the fabrication with some polyester. When I first got them I wasn't too sure about them, partly because of the fabric and partly because they are very fitted, and while I love skinny jeans I was not sure if the "jegging" look was right for me. I like them more when I wear them with a more voluminous top, and with boots or lower heels, because I have a curvy body type and I tend to look a little too va-va-voom if I wear them like the model in the picture. I'm sure lankier types would look great in them with anything.

Beautiful...but earpieces are too wide
I really liked these and would have kept them if the arms were not abnormally wide. I have never had this issue with sunglasses before. These were a good inch and a half wider at the ear than any of my other sunglasses. I'm not sure if this was a problem with my pair only or if Karen Walker makes sunglasses only for gigantic heads. I may try again to see but mine went back.

Too big and long for me
I'm 5'3" with a 36" bust and ordered a 4. It was slightly too big everywhere but fit me closest in the bust so a size down might be too small. I should note it only fit in the bust when I pinched the shoulders a bit since it was too long in the straps on me and would need to be altered there either way. While a 2 might have worked better I didn't find it as flattering as I would have liked so will not reorder.

Nice fabric but fit is unwieldy...
I ordered this in xs though I'm usually an s since it appeared large on the models which was a good decision. The fabric has a slight sheen which is nice but I found the fit a little complicated and weird. I kept adjusting it to try to make it look better and when I would get it right in the back it was too low in the front, otherwise it would pull weirdly in the back. I decided it was too much trouble and sent it back. It might work better for a taller person with a longer torso and lower bust,

Super sexy on
I ordered this in a small, my usual size and am in love. This should be great for a night out. The white is slightly sheer but not bad with a nude bra. It is super flattering since it shows the small of the back but not the tummy and gives me the illusion of being smaller than I am. I'm tempted to order black if available in a small or maybe the long sleeved version...
