Amazing!
This is an amazing dress! Fits TTS, high quality material, very flattering. I am 5'8", usually a size 2, and larger chest. I got the size 2 and the dress is a perfect mix of sexy yet modest. The lace back is beautiful. Note that it does run a bit longer - closer to the knee. Great purchase!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Nice Wedge!
I find these wedges to be TTS and very comfortable. The wedge itself is very lightweight, and I like the architectural design of the wood. I also like the elastic at the bottom of the straps which allows some movement. I do feel some extra space around my ankle, but it isn't visible. I don't have the smallest calves in the world, and I feel that the criss-cross shape of the upper straps elongates my legs, thinning out my calves. I didn't find the shoe to be overly narrow, and I also have not had a problem with the zipper falling down. I must admit I don't love them as much as my Cynthia Vincent wedges from last season, but they still are a fun new purchase. Only downsides are that everyone seems to have them and I have heard that the wood isn't too durable- chips/nicks pretty easily. I am usually a 9.5 and ordered a 9.5.

Disappointed!
I was very excited to receive these pants because of the great reviews, and I was pretty disappointed upon their arrival. I thought the linen seemed low quality - extremely thin. I am concerned they would wear thin or out very quickly, especially because the rear is fitted. They also weren't long enough for me - I got the 2 and am 5'8". They were a bit short with wedges. They do fit TTS; I had wondered if they would be baggy due to their linen nature, but they are quite fitted up top. All in all, considering the navy color, I think I am better off with a pair of trouser jeans.

Strange Boots
I am undecided about these boots. I purchased them in Black, which is more of a charcoal color. I read other reviews & decided to purchase true to size (9.5) although I usually get a 9 in Frye boots. I felt the boot fit my foot length wise, but had a strange width to the foot - looks kind of pear shaped - which made my feet look larger than usual. The shaft is tall; I am 5'8" & it comes right to my knee. It makes my leg look a little odd from the front, but the narrow shaft is flattering from the back & side. If you have larger calves, this is likely not the boot for you. I can only wear it with tights/leggings/very thin skinny jeans. The waxy leather is unique & I like how different it is from my other Frye boots. The area between the base & the shaft is baggy, not just slouchy as Frye can be. The boot doesn't taper in towards the bottom so there is the same distance outwards from your ankle area as there is from your calf/knee. Worth ordering - a steal if it fits you or just return!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Love the Buttons!
This is a really fun sweater - buttons on the back are great. I am 5'8 and took my usual size, S. Fabric is very soft, and the piece can be worn several ways. The versatility makes it worth the buy. Other reviewers are spot on - if you aren't comfortable with a loose arm, don't buy.

Beautiful Piece
This is one of my favorite dresses ever purchased from here- amazing color and the draping is beautiful. I will say it runs small - I am 5'8 and normally take a 2, but sized up to a 4 in this dress. The wrapping around the hips/butt area does not have any flexibility or give, and the zipper does not extend that far down. Essentially you have to be able to fit into the bottom part "as is" without any assistance from the dress. I found it to be quite short also, so I am hoping for the best with the 4. As long as you work out the sizing, the piece is just incredible - worth the price and classic.

Incredible Dress - Must Have
This dress is stunning in person. One of my favorite shopbop purchases of ALL TIME - simply beautiful. Classic color and very chic. Only note is that it runs a little small - the wrapping around the hip area does not stretch or give, and the zipper does not open that far down. Your butt has to fit into the dress as is without the assistance of a zipper or forgiving fabric. I am 5'8 and usually take a 2 in A+O, but needed a 4 in this piece.

Great Blazer, Great Price
Super cute piece and you can't beat the price! Looks great with a tshirt and jeans. I am 5'8 and usually take a S. I found this blazer is true to size for the most part. The arms run slightly small, but not enough to pose a serious problem. I agree with the last reviewer that the S accommodates a larger chest. Overall, my first BB Dakota buy and I love it!

Amazing!
So, so, SO glad I took the plunge and purchased these boots. I have been hedging on OTK boots for over a year - I really wanted a pair that were completely flat to the ground, with leather that is firm enough to provide a degree of shape. I didn't want them to look baggy. I will admit that the cap toe made me a little nervous, but in real life it looks great. It is not as prominent as in the pictures; really blends with the boot and looks normal. Also, I am normally a 9.5...I went up half a size to a 10 (40) and I am so glad I did. They fit like a glove. My feet are also a little wide and I found this MJ boot to run a little narrow, so I am glad I sized up. The leather keeps shape throughout the shaft without being inflexible and overall I am beyond thrilled with these boots. Highly recommend them. It's hard to find feedback on this pair, so I hope this helps someone! Also, the grommets/zipper are not overly brassy, as they look on some websites. They are a normal, non-flashy hardware.
