SLEEK NICE SIMPLE
I bought this in olive and black Large before they flew out. For some reason, all the garments I bought in the Olive fabric last season fit like a size M. The same is true here. My olive tunic is shorter than the black. It is a bit dark and overwhelming, but the fabric is nice quality and it is an effortless top to wear with skinny jeans and fab oxfords/boots/sandals or even Tom's paired with an oversize cardigan or vintage blazer...:)
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

great ombre finish, I sized down
I am a very curvy girl. I like high waisted jeans and looked for years until Cheap Monday came up with their second skin jean. There is great variation between washes/fabrics/batches in the sizing. Often a 32 is barely doable, but because of the stretch possible. I went down from my usual 32 to a 31 in these, largely because the legs fit better. I can never get skinnies tight enough on my legs without buying a size or two down. Anyway I also tried the 29 and they could have worked but there was too much leg bunching. If your size has sold out, I would suggest buying one down you will be surprised. I am 5'6" and 155 no matter what I eat! LOL

GINORMOUS SHORT SCRATCHY
This sweater will probably work on narrow shouldered/average shouldered women or slim women. As a woman with broad shoulders, it made me look like a big box! It was pretty bad in my size L. Don't think I've ever seen anythingn so unflattering in my life! And the fabric is very itchy if you are wool sensitive. It would be very warm and you would need to layer a thin shell underneath. I think it should be longer...CM's stuff this fall is cut too short IMO...

Fabulous chic basic
I was worried about the fabrication of the olive because in the photos the fabric is very puckery...however when I received mine it was in perfect condition. I am in love with this rayon fine fabric - it is beautifully cut and hangs well on my broad shouldered 5'6" 160 pound frame...(size L)...will wear with skinny jeans not as a dress...beautiful basic highly recommend...so happy with the olive colour too!

Loud Bathrobe, Cheap Fabric
I ordered this from another site but as a Shopbop regular feel compelled to reveal the true nature of this garment...The fabric is cheap and wrinkles easily, the cut is on the small side - my usual large fit, but was not as generous through the hips as I would have liked. It is in fact "Florida orange" - a sort of neon orange colour - not cherry red...looks a bit like a bathrobe kimono and the fabric very sheer. Not appropriate for a dress, but as a beach cover, or perhaps a tunic with pale jeans/cut-offs/or trousers...Cheap Monday has nice designs, but their fabrication is lacking. I don't think it's worth $90, but if you want a bright orange splash of fun in your life it's okay.

Nice well made basic
The rust is more like a brown colour - I was a bit disappointed it did not have more red in it...the fit is nice on my very broad shouldered frame ...I ordered a L and I'm 5'6" 160 with a 38B chest...It fits perfect now but I am afraid to wash it as another reviewer says it shrinks...I have this and the pilly long sleeve t from TAW and feel the quality of material and cut is really worth the extra money...this is a great layering t-shirt as it is very thin...

Meh
The fabric is thick and feels like polyester, the V is too big and deep in proportion to the too short length - it is unflattering from the front need to be longer to be that loose...the only good things are the black melange blend colour and the nice long sleeves and the back view...sent it back immediately...

Kmart style
I was really disappointed with this top. Shop bop service is outstanding and I love shopping with them! The top had a flaw - a streak running down the front - and they promptly refunded my money... Even had the top not been defective, I am not sure I would have kept it because the fit is smaller than pictured - I am a solid size L at 5'6" 155 with broad shoulders...I wear a 32 jean and a 12 pant...the hips in the L clung tightly and the length was not past the crotch area - the sleeves slightly too short as well. The black willow colour is beautiful and the cotton feels nice, but I don't think this is worth the sale price let alone the regular price. This was my first Vince item and I am not sure I will order more...unfortunately I already ordered the Sienna colour before receiving this one... It's just a really blah fit, sized too small and the fabric is too thin and if you adjust or pull at it you will get little puckers from where your fingers were.. cheapo...:(

Beautiful Design, Poor Fabric & Sewing
The photos don't really do the design of this piece justice...It is meant to fit a bit looser I think...I am 5'6" at 160 with broad shoulders and I have a terrible time finding jackets to fit my shoulders/chest - this cape design does the trick and is perfect for wearing over dolman/bat wing sleeved tops and sweaters...It is surprisingly warm and non itchy. I ordered the size large and it is quite generous on me - I tried a medium in a store and liked that it was a bit more sleek, but did not give the option to wear bulkier sweaters underneath. My beefs are with the fabric which after wearing about 10 times is visibly pilly. It is a cheap blend and a bit stiff, and the stitching around the pockets and the placket with snaps is wobbly and puckers. Also the seam across the back and chest has a tendency to pucker. So it does look a bit poorly executed which does not come across in the photos. However I love the colour and shape and it looks amazing with anything - very on trend!

Funky Futuristic Euro Jacket
This piece is pretty nice....surprisingly warm. I'm 5'6" 160 and ordered my usual L. I have really broad shoulders and it fit me well across the shoulders and chest, but the hips are a bit snug, so I just unzip the side zippers at the bottom to get the boxy look. The sleeves are plenty long and can be rolled up if need be. It's funky - the funnel neck is high and warm - it's an avant garde look and I like it layered over a longer piece like the Cheap Monday Piper dress and dark jeans with boots. Kept me really warm with just that CM turtleneck dress underneath...I'm taking off a star for the narrow hips and the fact I paid full price!
