Denim versatility
I tried the Emerson (blue ridge) BF jeans in 3 different sizes and bought two options for two different looks. For a straight up cropped skinny I went with a size 26. For what I consider the perfect BF style I went with a size 28. My normal size in COH jeans is typically a 28 so I would say these are TTS for the intended BF style. I also tried Rag & Bone's Dre and a Paige BF jean but these were by far the most flattering. Pockets are in proportion and the rinse works for both day and evening. I have worn the smaller of the two several times and have not noticed any undue stretching out, yet the fabric is soft and the perfect weight for Summer. I put a lot of work into finding the perfect skinny BF and feel it paid off.

Flimsy Fabric
I have been hunting for a casual maxi skirt and hoped this would fit the bill. It might work as a one off vacation piece but i felt it might shrink on first wash. The fabric was a little unforgiving and showed any lumps, bumps or VPL! I am 5'7" and the length was slightly too short but obviously would work ok as a dress. As I a not a fan of strapless dresses this piece just did not work for me. Oh and definitely order a size up as I typically run a small and as per reviews went for a medium which only just fit!

Spring Essential!
This is the most useful jacket which makes for a great layering piece on those chillier Spring mornings. The interior draw string creates shape if needed and can be loosened depending on what top you are wearing. The color is the perfect compliment to any print and the fabric is of a quality cotton which does not crease as soon as you put it on. This is going to sell out quick and I am so glad I got mine straight off the bat! I am a slim build size 2/4 in a jacket and got a size small so figure it is TTS.

A Skinny Essential!
I purchased my first pair of Avedon skinny jeans two years ago and they are still going strong. I decided to plump for another pair as they are the most comfortable of skinnies. I am a typically a size 27/28 in jeans and around 125lbs. On this occasion I opted for a size 28 as I prefer the slightly looser fit. This doesn't mean to say that there are any wrinkles or bagging with the larger size but just an overall more comfortable fit. I highly recommend ordering two sizes to determine which is the best fit for you.

Summer Essential
Inez is the answer to the perfect summer weight chino. I normally wear a size 28 in J Brand skinnies but found these pants ran a little larger so the 27 worked great. I will only buy chino's and jeans made in the USA so Inez also ticked that box and as another reviewer mentioned, the pants have a button fly which I happen to prefer. I bought the sergeant color, which I love, and my only regret is that I did not purchase the petal color also. Sadly it is no longer available in my size. Nothing bad to say about these pants. Definitely worth the money.

Disappointed
I tried this particular pair of sandals from another retailer and have to say was so disappointed. The issue seemed to be with stability. The straps did not hold my foot in place sufficiently, so I could hardly walk in them. The buckle is flimsy and hard to fasten and I envisioned that in time this might break. The style denotes a really useful sandal but in reality the fit is very disappointing.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Unflattering Fit!
I found the Cameron's to be a little bizarre in the fit - large at the waist and thigh while very narrow on the knees. I know these are classed as skinny boyfriends but I really did not like the overall silhouette which did nothing for my shape! They did run big and I have tried an array of sizes finding that I would size down a size to a 26 if I were to keep them. Ultimately I prefer the look of the more traditional boyfriends so will not be giving up my AG's just yet! I am 5'7" tall and typically a size 2/4 weighing 125 lbs!

Classic with Edge!
I own two other pairs of TB Sally Wedges and so felt that this snakeskin option would be of the same fit. They are! Love them and plan on wearing with boyfriend jeans - my staple. The wedge is high enough to denote a little elegance without being uncomfortable while the snakeskin print compliments every color. True to size, I particularly like the peep toe on this option which makes it the perfect summer wedge. I may order the Python option also which has gold undertones but is essentially the same shoe! It goes without saying that Shopbop's customer service is second to none which is why I order my brands from this website as opposed to others who are a little more restrictive!

The Perfect Summer Flat
I have a love/hate relationship with Tory Burch shoes - love the styles but find the sizing/fit hard to navigate! Not with the Selma Flats though - they fit perfectly and are, what I consider to be, true to size. The two things I love about this particular style is the slingback and the tumbled leather. I still have a pair of TB flats in tumbled leather from 5 years ago and so I envisage these will last equally as long and still look good. Will be ordering another color! Love!

A Classic Must-Have
Every now and again I like to wear a straight leg jean as opposed to a skinny. Previously I have chosen True Religions Billy or Bobby styles which are cool but very very low rise. I chose Elson because of the higher rise and was not disappointed. I ordered the 27 and 28 and have kept the 27 - I weight 125 lbs and am heavy on the hips than the waist. I think the Elson runs larger than average. I did end up getting them shortened by an inch or so as I found the 34" length a little long for my 5'7" frame. The fabric to Elson is stretchy but really comfortable and they are the best style for just throwing on with a casual tee and black booties.
