So wanted this.....
I already own 2 pairs of Newbury's and really wanted these boots. I was fortunate enough to be able to try them on in a local store in Toronto. If you have high arches like I do, these boots may not be for you! I am a 39.5 in Newbury's and the 40 in these was very tight in the instep (although fine in the length). My arch is just too high to slip into these comfortably...it felt as though I just couldn't get my foot into them. Unfortunately, the next size up is a full size jump to 41, which was way too large (I am a 39 to 39.5 normally). I guess the Harrow is not for me! I ended up purchasing my 3rd pair of Newbury boots......

Sexy and Chic
A great addition to a black jeans wardrobe. These are already sold out in most sizes at stores in Toronto. I grabbed them as soon as I saw them on shopbop! They look quite small for their size, but unlike the other JBrand coated jeans, which run a size small, these are super stretchy. The slit is very chic and sexy. However, I am 5'7", with long legs. The slit falls in a perfect spot on me. I am not sure how well these would work on someone petite. You might need to re-create the slit, to shorten them. These are a bit dressier than your average black jean, but could be day or night with the right top. Shoes will be the biggest challenge. My high heeled pumps look great. I now need to find a bootie that works right with the slit. Overall stunning and very comfortable jeans.

So wanted this.....
I have been wishing for this sweater on shopbop since I saw in in several magazines. I LOVE Helmut Lang sweaters and have several. I saw this on the weekend in a store here in Toronto and tried it on. It is every bit as stunning in person. I have heavy upper arms, so the M was a bit tight, and the L a bit big, but still stunning in the larger size.......here's the heartbreaker.......it sheds beyond belief! I was wearing a black tee maxi dress and slipped it over. When i took it off i was completely covered in heavy lint! This sweater would only work with a leather bottom or jeans that don't catch lint or dust. Wool pants, a major no! I had to pass and was soooo disappointed. I will be interested to see what others think......was it just the one I tried on?????? If so, I will be on the hunt to buy this again.....

Fantastic
I love the Leandra shirt. I now have both colors. I am pear shaped, and the Equipment signature blouses never fully close on me across the hip, so I loosely tuck them in. The Leandra is shorter and boxier and drapes perfectly through the shoulder. They are awesome for my body type and quite comfortable and chic. These striped tops look much better in person. The Emerald one is much more vibrant than the photo and a bit more acqua. Love it. I will live in these all summer.

Downtown Cool
This is the coolest Wilt dress. It has a real downtown vibe. Hi lo hem, cap sleeves, black. Will live in it all summer with funky black sandals and flats and some edgy jewellry. One of the things I like best about this dress is not mentioned at all. It is not the heavy Wilt slub jersey. It is more of the thin tissue jersey which is fab for summer. This dress will be awesome hn spring with a leather jacket and booties and ditto heading into fall. So glad I bought it. It is a loose style through the hips, so buy your normal T size because it is not oversized in the shoulders. I bought a M which I usually wear in the Wilt Hi Lo dress. Love it!

Awesome
This is an awesome shirt from Equipment. I love their tops and own at least 15! I love the Leandra cut. It is so chic and comfortable. I am pear shaped and the signature shirts, which I adore, are always tight across the hip on me. This shirt is wider and shorter, but drapes beautifully across the body. I am normally a M in signature, and bought a M in this cut. It is loose and swingy as it is on the model, but a bit more cropped in real life ( I am 5'7"). The only complaint I have is the color. The blue one is a bit duller and darker than the photo. I also own the emerald one and it is a much more stunning, vibrant color than the photo! For anyone thinking of buying the green one, It is a bright emerald green and aquamarine stripe! The blue is a sark purpley blue and medium denim color.Love these shirts and will wear them all summer with blue denim, colored denim and white!!!

Very Sophisticated
This is a very sophisticated top. It is quite long in the back, so not ideal if you are short. It is a beautiful french blue. Because it is cut on the bias, it is an easy fit for most shapes and sizes. Very pretty!

Such Fun
THese are fun and sophisticated summer jeans. Great with white, black, or almost any color. Easy to dress up or down. Fit is true to Paige Verdugo skinny. Tight, but a lot of give.

Summer Perfection
I am in love with Equipment chiffon blouses. This is the most stunning shade of greeny-aqua. It is a bit brighter than the picture. The color just lights up your face and is the epitome of summer. Stunning with jeans, pants or skirt. Love it!!

Big Disappointment
I ordered this gorgeous dress the second I saw it, and unfortunately, before any one reviewed it. The dress was a disappointment all around! It is not black and white as many websites describe. It is actually a soft off-black and creamy beige. And the fit.....I agree fully with.the other reviewers. The bust is so tight I could hardly pull it down over my chest. It was super tight, and totally flattened me. I am a medium/large and could barely get the large on. I am relatively tall, and at 5'7' it was still way too much dress for me. Sadly, it is going back. If you are skinny, flat chested and very tall, this is a stunner. Back in the hunt for a summer maxi.......
