this. blazer. is. awesome
this arrived today and i already can't wait to wear it. it looks just like it does on the model, the color blocking is great but neutral enough that i can pair it with lots of different outfits, and it's a great transition piece for friday work to a night out. it also has a nice weight to it so is a good warm layer as one of the other commentrs noted.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

underwhelmed
I really wanted to like this dress, as it would be perfect for a casual day at work or a slightly dressed up Saturday, and the fit was just fine (I ordered a small and the shoulders and sleeves fit well and the a-line cut doesn't restrict at all) but it was just sort of blah. Maybe if the white bad been a bit brighter? The texture is a nice detail but I just wasn't excited enough about this to hold onto it, so it's going back to Shopbop.

fun summer necklace
bought this piece in blue, and it's a really great statement piece. the price helps as well. the only complaint i have is that my hair, when it's down, tends to get stuck around the spokes of the necklace. not much you can do about that but if i'm not careful it can be a bit uncomfortable.

elegant earings
I ordered these specifically for a formal event back in December, and they are really lovely - a good size so as not to be overwhelming, but not so minimal that they won't be noticed. the only drawback is that the post is very delicate and sticks a little bit. the second time i wore them i wasn't careful when putting one earring in and snapped the post right off. thankfully i have a great jeweler close by who can correct this for a small cost, but even she noted that the post didn't seem sturdy enough to support the weight of the hoop.

Not what I expected
I was hoping that these would be soft and light, but the fabric was much heavier than I anticipated and as a result the fit wasn't right. I ordered a small and while the top was fine in terms of fit, the bottoms were just a bit on the snug side. The mediums probably would have fit, but I wanted something softer and lighter and I think the fabric still would have been a bit restrictive.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Perfect version of this shirt
Iknow this is a really basic shirt, but it's perfect - great fabric weight, hangs in such a flattering way, the contrast btw the black and white is perfect, and it's casual but still sharp. So glad I snagged this at a sale price, but it's worth it at full price too. The small fits perfectly for me (5'3", 34A) and I would think for most people, since it's a bit on the long side and the sleeves are nice and long.

Great bag for just the basics
I ordered this bag because I needed something to carry just my keys, cell phone, mini wallet, and a lip gloss for walking around town or going out for a casual evening, and this definitely fits the bill. The leather is good quality, the hardware is not flimsy, and the color is a good match for my primarily black and gray wardrobe. The only complaint is that the strap length is not adjustable, and while you can double up on the metal link clasps to make this a shoulder bag, with the chains hanging free, the clasps are BARELY big enough to do this, and very difficult to remove. But with that one exception, this is a great bag for all your essentials.

super comfy summer shorts
i went back and forth on whether to purchase these, since i have a pair that's similar but pretty cheap looking, but i'm definitely happy i made the purchase. i'm usually a size 28 in j brand, but i was concerned about getting the fit slouchy enough so i ordered up to a 29 - good move. the 28s would have been fine but wouldn't have looked as casual as they do on the model. i'm giving them 4 stars because even though they're really great summer cut offs, they still strike me as a bit much for what they are (even though i waited til they were on sale).

can't wait to break this out
really happy with this purchase. the top is really flattering, even with my small chest, and the cut is slimming without being constrictive. i ordered a size 4 and it fits me perfectly (34A, 27/28 in pants). definitely a night out on the town kind of dress - it will be great for spring and summer nights in the city.

going back
I ordered this in a 6, knowing that it might be a bit on the large size, but a 4 wasn't available. it was HUGE. i am tiny on top (34A) but it looked much larger than i was expecting given past purchases from BCBG. also important to note - there's a corset-type structure around the bust that i suppose is meant to give shape, but the result is that the dress is much heavier than i thought it would be. there's a piece of plastic on the inside edge that is maybe supposed to keep the fabric closer to the skin, but in the summer (when i was planning on wearing this) i can imagine that getting irritating and sweaty really quickly.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
