Order your true size
After reading reviews on this shoe and knowing I sometimes need to size up to 9 with pointy-toed shoes, I ordered a 9/39. It was comfortable but I could slide my foot forward in it, and I'm sure with wear it would become too loose. The color is beautiful, as I hoped it registers more purple in person but is still a deep blue-violet. I may reorder in a 38.5 but will probably wait for a sale...
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Maybe a little heavy for me
This necklace looks nicer in person and is definitely worth the price on sale. I'm still up in the air on keeping it since it might be a little big and heavy for me. I'm on the petite side and while I want a statement necklace this might be a little too much. Or it could be I'm just not used to it. I'm sure it would look great on a taller person!

Runs very big
I am usually an 8 or 8.5, sometimes even a 9 in pointy toed shoes such as these. I ordered these in an 8.5 and they were huge. Perhaps this is because they also indicate they are size 39.5 which usually corresponds to a 9.5 in US sizes. It's just as well since one of mine had an area on the toe where the haircalf changed direction and it looked damaged. I may try the 7.5 since I believe that would fit me best after trying this shoe.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Better in real life!
I don't know if I just got lucky, because from what I understand each of these is a little different color-wise, but the one I received has a darker shading toward the center of the bag while the outer edges are a paler tone. I was hoping to get one of the lighter colored ones but this is even better! The haircalf is a very nice quality, mine even has cowlicks. :). I actually got this for much cheaper at another site with multiple discounts and it's definitely worth what I paid.

A little darker than expected
I ordered the sea foam in size 26, my usual size. This is my first pair of Koral denim. The color was slightly darker in real life, which usually does not happen with items I order from Shopbop. I was a little disappointed with that but not too much, especially for the price. They fit like J Brand, Citizens, Paige or Rich & Skinny, I would say most like R & S since they are so stretchy. They have a subtle silvery coating that when you look closely almost looks like splatter paint. This gives them a little something extra, but not so much that they can't be a good pair of everyday jeans for a stay-at-home mom like me. Overall, very happy with my final sale purchase.

Small arm holes and feels cheap
I realize this is a cheap jacket but I thought I could get something comparable at Forever 21 for a much lower price. I ordered a 4 (I'm usually a 4 or 6 in jackets) thinking it would probably work since it doesn't close in the front and I usually need a larger size to accommodate my bust, not my shoulders. I couldn't even raise my arms to shoulder level in this. A size up might have been better but I was not pleased with the quality and it wasn't very flattering from the side since it flared away from my chest, so I will not reorder.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Huge looking dress
I ordered both ruby and black in this dress, in size xs. I am usually a small but I read reviews on the Free People site and thought it might run big. I liked the red color but thought I'd try both since black might be more flattering. Neither worked for me since there is just too much volume in this dress. I'm short and on the busty side so it might work better for a taller flatter-chested body. I tried belting it but all the fabric bulged out below the belt. It felt a little crunchy too--not very soft.

Sizes are US sizes, not UK
I read the other review and ordered a 4 and an 8. Since I am usually a 4/6 in US sizes, and this was unlined and leather will stretch I thought a US 4 would fit me. I received a US 4/UK 8 and a US 8/UK 12. The smaller one did fit. The mink color is lovely and is the kind of brown that will go with black also. I did not realize, however (I should have since it is stated in the description) that there are fabric panels on the sleeve undersides, something I do not want. My search for the perfect leather jacket continues...

Runs big!
I have a 26" waist and 35" hips, and I ordered a 26, my usual size. I could almost pull them off without unbuttoning them. The waist on these measured 32". I know they are supposed to be boyfriend style but these were a little too long in the crotch area when they fell down. I have lost weight recently and my closet is full of oversized items right now so I wanted these more fitted. I have ordered the moss color in a 25 to see if those work better.

Good basic flip flop
I ordered this in the tangerine in 8, my usual sandal size. It fits perfectly. In some flip flops my heel hangs off the inside edge but not with these. Tangerine is definitely more the peach color shown in the photo than what it sounds like. I did get it on sale but still think around $30 would have been a more appropriate price, but I guess since it's leather it has to cost a bit more. I would not have paid full price for these.
