Great jacket for fall
This is a heavier weight jacket that will go great over a LBD for work. Great modern fit and tailoring. Not too long which is usually my complaint. Note I say true to size, but I like my jackets to be open. If you have any sort of chest you should order up if you want to wear it closed.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not the right fit
Based on how this dress looks on the model, I took this to be a shift dress. I ordered one size up as always with DVF, but the dress was disappointingly small in the stomach and hips (and I have NO hips!). I decided to try one more size up (10), but that didn't fix the problem. I am an apple shape (which is perfect for shift dresses normally), but I would advise only girls with boyish figures order this dress.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Not the fit I expected
I was looking for a peplum top for work. This top looked to fit the bill on the model, however once I received it I found it to be too tight to be peplum. Even if I had gone one size up I know it wouldn't be exactly what I was looking for, so I returned it. If you are looking for a more structured, fitted top for work I think this would fit the bill. I would recommend sizing up either way.

Just too long
This dress looks stunning on the model, and if you are tall and lean it will probably be stunning on you too! I, unfortunately, am not tall. I am also not that lean, but that wasn't the real issue - the length was. And the reality of silk is that is is VERY difficult to tailor evenly, plus I didn't really spend another $100 getting a $750 dress tailored. The silk fabric also makes it feel a bit bedroom-y to me, but I think that can be overcome with the right hair and makeup and the right event. Just to give you an idea of length, I am 5'5" and I ordered a size 8, and I would say it was about 7-9" too long. I am normally a size 6 (they only had an 8 left) and it was a little loose on me but still look structured.

Versatile Skinnies
Skinny jeans are a little difficult for me to pull off because I have very athletic legs. They are relatively skinny, but muscular so skinnies can make me look a bit butch. These do not do that at all because they are skinny while not being too clingy (and it does help if you wear them around to stretch them out a bit). My husband, who hates skinny jeans, is a fan. I got them in grey and it is a great color - very versatile. I am a size 28 in jeans, and that is what I bought in these.

Cute boots for fall!
I really like these boots - my husband HATES booties/boots but I have been searching for a pair that will be an alternative to Uggs during our snowy, nasty Chicago winters but will also be cute enough for the hubby. While he was not thrilled with them he thought them cute enough to keep, and you can't beat the price. I wear a 6.5 size shoe in almost everything except Christian Louboutin and found I needed to return them for a larger size (the toe box was a bit cramped and the ankle just a smidge tight). I ordered the 7 and it was perfect. LOVE that shopbop.com lets you return things for free.

Terrible fit
This dress was just not for me although I am a sucker for a sweater dress with a defined waist. The arms were WAY too tight, while the area below the defined waist made me look pregnant. Perhaps this would work for someone with extremely skinny arms (it looks cute on the model!) I typically wear a size 6 and I ordered a size 6, but even if I wanted to go up a size to accommodate my arms, the area around my belly would have been way too big.

So cute
Love this dress! I bought it for a black tie wedding I have coming up this fall. It is a fun party dress while still being formal enough to be black tie.
