Less than impressed
I thought this tee looked like a gorgeous, supple weave on the model and draped so nicely. I found it to almost swallow me (it fell much longer on me than the model), and the fabric was a tad thick for my liking...I would almost say it was like a thin sweater more than a tee. The fabric is pretty, but combined with the fit this top just wasn't for me.

Great skinny jeans
These are on par with the quality of all other J Brand jeans I own. They're a nice, solid black and are fitted all the way though the leg. I'll have to have them hemmed an inch or two so there is no bunching at the ankle, but that's normal for me (I'm only 5'4). Very, very happy with these!

Bad fit
Ordered S, same size as the model is pictured in as I usually am TTS with them. The tank was a nice fabric, but fell completely wrong. The front of it sagged below my chest, and as the back is cut so low a bra is not an option to help hold the top up and the straps are too thin to use fashion tape. I could pull the back down further so as to make the top sit higher, but I found it would just slide again after a few minutes. I doubt an XS would have solved the problem.

Looked almost brown...
I really wanted to love these but disliked something about the color. Maybe it's just me, but I found them to appear a bit more brown than black. I could tell if I looked at them closely that they were black (asphalt), but when they were on my feet they seemed almost espresso-tinged. Perhaps it was the "waxed suede" finish or the brown wood heel and brown leather zipper pull. I'm returning this pair and ordering the Classic Newbury booties in the "rubbed suede" that have the black heel and black zipper pull. Maybe that will help, because these are fantastic booties and well worth the money. As is true with most Rag & Bone booties (and as other reviewers have noted), order a 1/2 size up from your normal shoe size. I take a 7.5 in all other brands and sized up from 37.5 to 38 in these and they fit perfectly. I also want to say that I had a slight complication in returning these (mistake on my end) & Shopbop customer service was unbelievably fast, responsive and helpful. Thanks!

Wanted to love this
I really wanted to love this, but just didn't think it was worth the $185. The stones are good quality and the necklace has a nice weight to it, but I felt the orange jade was just a little blah. Another issue I had was that the necklace didn't drape like I thought it would. It was almost like it was strung a little too tight and the tassel stuck out at a weird angle rather than lying flat against the body.

Perfect basic
As with the other reviewer, I got this on sale and I think it is totally worth it. I live in black triangle tops during the summer (I get more creative with my bottoms than with the tops) and bought this to replace a Vix black string top, which is getting worn out from all the wear. Thick, quality fabric, flattering, and worth it!

Great quality & color
This jacket is a beautiful suede with a nice weight to it, and the color is gorgeous (I'm especially loving plum for fall). There wasn't a size 2 (normal size) available so I tried a 4, which was just slightly too big on me in the shoulders, so I had to return. Would recommend buying/trying if you're on the fence though.

As expected
I love Honeydew bralettes and this one is very similar. It's pretty and delicate but very relaxed and comfortable. Band was slightly larger around than I would have thought, but overall happy with this purchase!

LOVE
I hope Calvin Klein makes this bra in more colors! I'm obsessed. It's thin and since it has no underwire it's a bit 'free-er' but I still found it to be supportive enough. It looks smooth under clothing and is perfect for under sweaters and blouses, as long as you don't mind that it's unlined and if it's a little cold you might see hard nips through thinner fabrics. I'm a 34C and a M was perfect.

Huge collar
I felt like the extra collar fabric that is shown in the photo was swallowing me alive. It stuck out much further than it does on the model...it folded all the way to my outer arms. It almost looked like a futuristic style jacket on me. The leather was also a bit stiff so when it wasn't zipped it stood out far from the body, making me appear much bulkier in profile than I am (I'm 5'4, 120lbs). Also, just an FYI that this was a bit more of a blueish-green than shown in pictures. Could be a great statement jacket on some, but just wasn't for me.
