Slightly disappointed!
I wear a 34A bra and purchased the SMALL as per Shopbop's measuring chart. What I liked best is that the bralette is soft and stretchy. The best thing about it is that is seamless so that there are no irritating seams that can chafe your skin. With that said, what I didn't like about the bralette is that the banding below the cups is super tight and because this area is made of a thicker fabric it doesn't seem to stretch as well as the other areas (cups, straps etc), thereby reducing the comfort level that I was looking for. Hopefully the banding will stretch out a little more as I wear it. To help other buyers out.... the banding section measured 10.5 inches when it was laid flat and measured across without stretch.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Not for me!
Loved the stretch on these jeans. Unfortunately they had to be returned as the description on Shopbop's website stated that the inseam was 27 inches but in fact the 5 inch Blank Denim tag attached to the jeans stated that the inseam was 29 inches. I was planning to wear them for a more dressier occasion and didn't want to have to roll up the leg so they had to go back. These are not your typical heavier weight cotton jeans, these are much thinner and would not be suitable for Canadian winters! I normally wear a 29 in Citizens and this is what I ordered but I found them to be slightly tight in the waist area and would have felt more comfortable going up a size.

Really cute bag!!
This bag is made of very soft leather and is very nice to the touch. It holds more than it seems and surprisingly I was able to put my sunglasses's case inside with no problem. The middle section has a zippered pocket which I liked....unfortunately I was not able to put my Iphone in that pocket and zip it closed as the pocket was just about 2 cm too small....it's not a complaint just an observation as I like to put my phone in a zippered compartment for security reasons. I immediately liked the look of the bag, the weathered studs and the substantial clasps on the bag. The only adjustment that I have to make is to put in additional holes on the shoulder straps as the bag hangs too low on my hips. I am just a little over 5 feet 3 inches and the 23 inch drop is too long for me.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Super Soft Sweater!
This is a beautiful soft light weight sweater! My measurements are 33 bust, 28 waist and 36 hips. I normally take a medium in tops as I don't like a fitted look especially if the top is intended to have a casual feel to it as this one has. I purchased a small in this top as a medium was unavailable. I am so glad that I purchased a small as this sweater has a boxy fit and is very stretchy. The ribbed hemline of the sweater is also not tight and does not cause any type of pouffiness to the sweater. It hangs very nicely to my hips (I'm 5 ft 3 inches) and the length is just perfect...not too long as to shorten the look of my legs. I have no complaints.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Wanted to love them!!
These jeans are beautiful with a really nice stretch. They are mid weight jeans and not light weight which work perfectly for Canadian weather. I normally wear size 29 in Citizens and found these to be one size too big. I had to return them and pondered about exchanging them for a smaller size but decided against it. Even though I liked the quality, the softness and stretch of the jean, I did not like the angled front slant pockets which due to placement poofed out and seemed to add an extra inch to each side of my hip area....so unfortunate because these jeans are beautiful.

Nicer than expected!
Very nice quality leather belt and true to size. Studs are actually punched through and not glued on. Surprisingly soft leather with a nice vintage look. I ordered a medium as per Shopbop's description. My hips are 36" and the belt fit perfectly. Only con is the slightly funky smell of the leather....which I'm sure will dissipate once exposed to air(the belt came packaged in a very nice elegant looking circular gift box). Overall very happy with this purchase!

Comfy!
Very cute and very trendy! Leather is very soft. Easy to walk in as they are flats Slippery leather sole but traction is helped with the rubber heel. .Don't know how long the leather sole will last though as they are thin. No issues with tight ankle problems as other reviewers have encountered. Order half size up!

Overpriced
Like the previous reviewer I really wanted this dress to work for me. I had been planning to wear it to a wedding. I really thought that at almost $400.00 plus $60.00 canadian in taxes that I would be getting a quality item....but I was really disappointed. I am 5ft 3 and 115 lbs....my measurements are 34,27, 36., and I had purchased the size 6 as I usually do in designer wear.In my opinion, the dress runs true to size in the waist & hip area but the horrible pouffing balloon effect at the back top half of the dress meant that I had to return this dress immediately. The lace is beautiful and soft, but the skirt, though stretchy was of poorer quality. I found that my Bailey 44 dress which I purchased elsewhere for $130.00 was of better quality and fit, maybe that's why that dress was sold out immediately but this one wasn't... Maybe I expected too much but lesson learned...price doesn't mean quality.
