This Bag Means Business
I purchased this as a gift for my husband because the bag he used for work was a 2000s Timbuktu that desperately needed updating into this decade. I was looking for a slim bag, with clean lines and some leather, that could work in formal "suit and tie" business situations, as well as look trendy for personal "chucks and flannel" situations. This bag fit the bill perfectly and he absolutely loved it. From opening the bag up you can tell the craftsmanship is no joke and I love that it's made in the USA. Also, the fact that it has some padding is nice for securely transporting around a laptop or iPad. All-in-all this bag means business and was a great purchase.

white denim for the spring!
i am usually a size 28 in j brand and i ordered a 27 and 28 to see which size fit better because some reviews say to go a size down. although i could do the 27, the 28 felt more comfortable, so this jean fits true to size. these jeans are super comfortable and quite flattering. i love the high rise (not high-waisted) and the placement of the back pockets on the butt. being 5'1" i'm trying to decide if i want to hem the bottom so it hits flush at my ankle vs. scrunching at my ankle. for now i'm just cuffing them and that works fine. these are the perfect white jeans! xoxo

Not as good as first run
I bought the original France Wrap boots in a size 6 a couple years ago from a boutique and about a month ago I was taking the boots off and the heel and foundation of the boot broke - waaaaah! These were my trademark boots and I wear them year round - they are my favorite pair of boots, so it was no question that I would need to replace them. I was delighted to see that they were back in stock at shopbop. I ordered a size 6, but quickly realized that they changed the sizing of the boot from the original run. I ordered a 6.5, which is my true size, and they fit perfectly. I like the replacement boots, but I agree with some of the other reviewers in that it makes absolutely no sense to have the shoe size and "France" imprinted on the inside of the boot because when you flip it down it looks ridic. I'll have to find a way to scratch off the gold lettering so I can wear them flipped down in the front - not ideal. In another couple of months they will be perfectly broken in!

Strappy Strap
I was looking to replace the generic, standard issue camera strap that comes with all DSLRs. There's nothing worse than advertising "I have an expensive CANON" around your neck. No thanks. This camera strap is awesome - it's simple, it's thin, it's timeless, the leather is great quality, and although the leather is a bit stiff to start, I'm sure after a little breaking in it will soften and become super comfortable.

gorgeous print, but weird fit
The print of this maxi is wonderful, but the fit of this maxi is a bit off. I ordered a size 4 (i'm a true size 4) and found that I was swimming in it - the waist was a bit large and saggy. I found that you have to wear this dress with a belt to help cinch up the waist. Also, the neckline is a bit funky to me and you have to adjust the straps to bring the sweetheart neckline down a bit otherwise it sits too high and looks funny. All in all, it's a great purchase on sale, but wouldn't pay full price for it.

meh
i'm 5'1" and was hoping that these jeans would hit at the perfect length because they are "highwater," but that was not the case. the distressing was a little lower than it should be and the cut at the waist was not flattering. had to return these guys.

Horrible Zipper
After reading all of the positive reviews, I thought that I would LOVE these. Once I tried them on, I realized that the leather look was just okay and the zipper was impossible - definitely pinched my skin the first time I tried to zip them up. Sorry, don't need any zipper drama when I'm trying to put my pants on.

This shirt is JV
Ordered this in a small and it's definitely a very roomy shirt. Even with a larger chest to fill the shirt in, the neckline isn't really all that flattering. The arm holes are huge so it just makes for an overall sloppy look. Nope, didn't pass the test.

Dope
I am usually a 28 in J Brand and these fit perfectly. One of the main reasons I got these were because of the 28 inch inseam (vs. 30 inches), which is perfect for my 5'1" frame. Unfortunately, they were a little longer than I would've liked - the fall closer to the lower ankle and work well with flats and pumps, but not booties. With respect to the color - I absolutely love the color and the coating - it's not the leather look/shiny coating, rather it's something a bit more subtle. The zipper in the back is a dope touch.

Comfy and Cozy
I ordered this shirt in a S and M and ended up keeping the M. The small fit, but I felt like it was too stiff and had too masculine of a cut. For some reason the M fell on my curvy body in a more flattering way. Love the black and white print.
