Unexpectedly Scratchy
I really love the fit of this sweater. The XS was great on me (I am typically a size 0 on top). It is exactly as pictured. I also loved that it was a loose knit, but did not look like a net. The vents at the underarms were thoughtful. The material is cotton and polyester - not fabrics that usually upset my skin - but it really irritated my skin when I tried it on at home. I am quite sensitive to wool - even some decent cashmere - so keep that in mind when you evaluate my comments, but this sweater felt more like merino than a cotton/poly blend.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great Short Slacks
I would describe these as short slacks. They fit as pictured - like long work slacks that have been cut and cuffed into a pair of shorts. If I worked in an environment were conservative shorts were appropriate, I would consider keeping them, but I don't. I wanted black shorts for casual and going out wear and these don't feel like "dancehall" shorts. The order was a mistake on my part, though I will likely re-order once they are marked down. Buying retail hurts my heart (and pocket). The 0 fit as all alice + olivia bottoms fit - snug, not tight, in the waist with enough room for my hips not to ruin the lines created by the pockets. I am 5'6", approx. 110lbs, a tad hippy.

A Little Small
This skirt looks exactly as picture and fits quite well. I typically wear between a 0 and 2 in DVF - opting for size 2 in fitted bottoms and 0 all other times (I am 5'6", approx. 110lbs, wider at the bottom than top). My instincts were right on this one, a 0 would have worked if I wanted the skirt solely for date/out wear, but would have been innappropriate for work. The skirt hits just below the knee and would be tough to walk in without the zipped back slit. The material is scuba-suit like, but I find it comfortable. I ordered aubergine and love the color - not quite brown. It's a good, but uncommon (for me at least) neutral. I will return it to Shopbop because another retailer beat them to the final mark-down. Shopbop has since caught up.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Great Top
This top is as pretty on (and fits) as pictured. The neckline feels secure (not gaping like some loose fitting shirts) and the arms fit well, but the body is quite loose and the hem relatively short. I am 5'6, approx. 110lbs, 32B and ordered an XS. I tend to resist purchasing at retail price (regardless of dollar amount), but this one feels worth it. I purchased the ivory color and couldn't be happier. I would consider getting the smokey color, but taupe is weird on me.

Works For Narrow Foot
I ordered this shoe from another site in black, but relied on reviews here for the purchase. I wear a size 8/8.5 N/AA/AAA. I ordered the 8 in this shoe. Unlike a lot of shoes with supposedly "stretchy" straps, the are actually stretchy accross the toe and the bands were tight enough to actually stretch accross my foot with only one foot pad. One reviewer noted that the heel flops some - that was true for me as well. For me, that was not a deal breaker. They are as comfortable as any other shoe I have at this height (plus the added discomfort of the flopping) and serve their purpose for me. I would buy again in another color...at a discount! If you don't NEED the stretch, you can probably do a bit better. Also, I am fairly certain this exact shoe is offered by Tommy Hilfiger (not in black). I doubt it's a Tory Burch exclusive.

So Cute but Note Quite
I love these pants but the fit wasn't perfect. I am 5'6", 112, typically wear a 0-2. I ordered the 0 and they fit well through my hips, but the waist was quite large. I don't have a particularly small waist, so I was unpleasantly surprised by that. The length allowed for flats if I wore them at my natural waist and heels if I wore them lower. All in all, these were great palazzo pants, but not worth it for me at full price,so I returned them. If my size is available one the price drops again, I may repurchase them.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Nice Work Style and Fit
I purchased these in a local discount store yesterday in dark brown (for what I see now was an amazing price) and have just purchased black here. The cut, fit and fabric are great for me for work in my relatively conservative office environment. I am 5'6", 112lbs, usually size 0-2 and these fit me well in my normal size 25. They are not as snug as my J-Brand jeans. They fit like well-fitted work slacks with just enough give/stretch to be comfortable. I think the fit is better than the picture and they don't feel at all workman-like to me (but I am arguably proportionaltey a tad hippy so that may actualy work to my advantage in these). The waist is a little looser than I like, but the slim flare, perfect length (for my height plus 3" heels) and multi-seasonal mid-weight washable "Japanese twill" fabric more than compensate for the waist issue. I would clearly buy these again (I just did) and recommend them.

Great Pants
I am approx. 5'6", 110lbs and typcially wear a 0 or 2 in DVF. I am glad I opted for the 0 in these pants. They fit well but are a touch looser than I expected and am used to from DVF in the waist and in the lower tummy area. In hindsight, the fit actually matches the picture, but if you are a true 0 in DVF, rather than a 0/2, you may find them baggy. I love these pants. They hang beautifully and are very comfortable. The color looks exactly as it does on my screen - a deep, but true red. The pants are quite long (as pictured). I will likely have mine hemmed just a smidge to avoid ruining them.

More Narrow than Expected
I purchased this shoe elsewhere because shopbop did not have my size. For context, my foot is pretty narrow, but a AA/N is usually fine and a B/M can sometimes work if the shoe runs slim, with padding or both. I ordered a 7.5 and 8 in this shoe and will keep the 7.5. It is not officially marked narrow, but considering how well it fit me, it probably runs a little slim. I was in LOVE as soon as I put it on. Though the 7.5 is a tad short, it's better for me to sacrifice a little length to get a better width since the leather will surely stretch. The 8 was very loose in the heel and gapped just a smidge on the sides. I would not call this shoe comfortable, but it's not bad. I definitely have worn (and will again) much worse. The shoe is really gorgeous on. The mini platform is barely noticeable, but still a cool touch, and the heel detail pops subtly, but definitely. This is the prettiest leopard pump I've seen so far in all price ranges - and I've looked/Googled!
