Something different!
The knit is a bit bulky for warm weather, but has a hand-knit look to it... nice texture with a bit of weight that allows the garment to hang nicely. Got a small. A tad snug around the chest, flares out towards the bottom, shorter in front center. Overall, very interesting addition to the wardrobe for a great sale price! Looks great with jeans or shorts.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

One of a kind!
Light, cool, and flowy, these light silk pants move gorgeously with each step. Looks more like a skirt than pants. Can be dressed up or down. Just lovely. The waist band sits exactly at my waist and right below, there's a narrow see-through section, so it somehow gives the illusion of of a lower waisted silhouette. Very comfortable. A bit long. At 5'5", with 4-inch heels on, still needed a little hemming. The hook on the waistbank was a little skewed, but those little issues were easily fixed. Would've given 5 stars if not for the crooked hook. Am going to get a lot of use of this unique piece. Love it! Wish they came in more colors.

This season's casual long skirt
This skirt is easy to wear with casual tops, Looks nice with racerback tees. My height: 5'5"... can't wear my wedgies with them, as it isn't as long as it looks in the picture. Maybe the model was wearing flats. The waist is elastic, so I could pull it lower down to make it longer. Fabric is soft and comfy. Washes well. Use cold water.

Wasn't what I expected
I have purchased Free People items in the past, but for some reason, this one didn't fit right. I am typically a size 4, height 5;5:, 110 lbs. Ordered this in Small, but turned out to be way too big. Bust: 32D, and the top half was hanging with armholes cut extremely low. The bottom half was also loose. The crinkly fabric is so beautifu and comfy that I decicded to return it and order a new one in XS. Shopbop rocks! Shipping was super fast and i got it within 2 days. The hem of ths skirt is longer in the back. At my hieght, it was too long, so got it shortened in the back. Now the hem is all the same length all around, and I am loving it.

Not scared to order shoes online anymore
Have been shopping online for years, but have always been afraid to order shoes, because I felt they have to be tried on. Took a chance with these espadrilles, which are the first really high wedges I've bought. They're so in... just had to order.. and I'm so happy that I got them!... size 7. I am typically a 37 in designer shoes, but I sometimes go for 37 1/2 with boots. Was skeptical about the T-strap and, since I usually prefere a cleaner look, but these are perfect. The nude colored leather isn't obvious abainst the skin. Very comfortable and goes with everything for daytime. Overall, better than expected. I really like the design.. there's a layer of cork between the leather and wedge, which gives the illusion that it isn't that high, so I don't look like I'm wearing stilts.

Finaly found the perfect high-rise jeans
I have a scar under my belly-button, and for years, have been wearng lower-rise brand-name jeans with longer tops to cover my scar. So happy that high-rise is back. This pair does NOT look like Mom's... very young-looking, slim-fitting throughout the legs, and extremely comfortable. I am 5'5", weigh110 lbs, and usually a typical 4. Bought my first pair, size 26 which fits pretty well everywhere except my waist (25"). Had it taken in at waistline and it was fine. After a few washes, felt it stretched out a bit, although still ok. Bought another pair, size 25... perfect fit, even after several washes. At my height, needed to have them hemmed a bit, and I still wear 3" heels with them. The shortening narrowed the flare just a tad, but I like it even more that way! Now I have 2 sizes which both fit... one for when I plan to eat a lot and still look great! These really make my legs look long and lean. They do stretch, so consider sizing down.
