Perfect
I have easily over 100 pairs of premium denim and the brands run the gamut, with JBrand, Current/Elliott and AG being my preferred brands. I am 5'7" and while i am tiny/very thin ALL over- EXCEPT i have big hips in comparison to the rest of me. (think taller much thinner/lankier version of Kim Kardashian)- needless to say, when i find a cut/style that works well with my hard to fit body type, i grab them. The Love Story hugs my curves, yet are not tight at all. They perfectly skim over my waist, hips, thighs, and flare nicely below the knees. These do have stretch, yet retain their shape nicely. I prefer to buy my flared/wide leg jeans in petites, as to avoid having to have them hemmed. However, when i DO get them hemmed- ALWAYS get the "original hem"- it will ruin the aesthetic of the jean if you do not. The flared leg on these is not super flared, making them a more classic style/ less faddish.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Vince is the greatest
i bought this in Lentil, after seeing it at the store...i am a major Vince fanatic, with a massive Vince collection. I was hesitant to order this only because I have a Vince cashmere zip hoodie in a similar color from a few seasons ago, and did not want to duplicate the color; however, i just could NOT resist. The style/cut/knit/color is just perfect, and super versatile. It is very soft, cozy and I love the style. It runs true to size, and is a great piece.

awesome sweater
As a MAJOR Vince collector, i LOVE their thermal knit sweaters. This sweater is very cozy, soft and MUCH MUCH nicer in person. It is on the slightly large side of true to size, but i prefer my sweaters on the slouchy side, and this is described as such. It has long sleeves but not "too long" and also the hi-lo hem. It is a great staple sweater, and i can not stop myself from buying Vince sweaters. This one DOES NOT disappoint- and the on-line pictures do not do it justice. If you are on the fence on this one, or you are a Vince fanatic, this is a MUST for the collection.

LOVE IT
I bought this in the Natural, and it is really a great twist on the "classic cable"...i own an ABSURD number of Vince sweaters and clothing (easily 100 sweaters) and Vince hands down is my go-to Sweater designer (bought 6 new Vince Sweaters this past week). I would say that this is running on the smaller side of "normal". It is not super chunky or bulky which is common with this type of knit. The cut in the back is much more flattering/attractive IRL. I am 5'7" and tiny everywhere, with the exception of my very curvy hips. The silhouette of this sweater is very flattering, which is nice, as I often look like thicker knit sweaters are swallowing me. I did size up on this one, however, i prefer my sweaters to be on the looser side.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

SIZE UP TO LOOK LIKE MODEL
I am a major major Vince collector and lover, and bought this one this week. True to Vince, it is an awesome piece, however, it is MUCH smaller IRL- thankfully, i did my research, and figured out that if i wanted to get the fit that many of the models show (even other sites)- i needed to order a Large. I am 5'7 and tiny on top/ tiny everywhere with the exception of curvy hips. I prefer my clothes (especially sweaters) to fit on the looser/slouchy side, and normally even a Medium in Vince fits VERY roomy on me. However, after reading a few reviews and comparing fit on the various models on many websites, i tried it IRL, and realized that in order to get the LOOK that is a major selling point, that i needed a Large. This item measures 22-23 inches in length for a Small, so, be AWARE, and size UP UP if you are going for the slouchy/ longer look. The knit is fabulous, and I am looking forward to wearing this.

FABULOUS FALL NECESSITY
I received these today in Terra Cotta, and as always, J Brand & ShopBop do NOT disappoint. First of all, I am happy to report that the SIZING of these is True to Size and these fit me THE SAME as the denim J Brand Love Story jeans- and are also running the same sizing as all of my MANY other J Brand pants. I was concerned, as I have found in the past that many designers sizing is inconsistent with regards to colored denim, twills and cords- and even have had this issue in the past with certain J Brand styles, yet, i am thrilled and relieved that these fit no different than my other Denim/Non corduroy Love Story Jeans. I am 5'7" and while i am tiny on top, tiny waist, flat stomach, thin everywhere EXCEPT for my huge hips in comparison, I get anxious when ordering a new style or fabric, due to my needing specific fits. The color is gorgeous and unique. Fabric is substantial yet stretchy. These hug my curves in all of the right spots, and flare nicely at the hem. Inseam is long-as usual
