Staple
The tan pair is my Spring/Summer staple. It matches with everything, and works perfectly when I need something to wear to school or grocery shopping. They're simple yet stylish at the same time. I think everyone needs a pair in their wardrobe. That being said, I have 3 pairs of Thora sandals--I've had them for over 2 years and still, they're never comfortable. They're not cushioned at all, so they end up hurting after a little wear. Don't expect to walk a theme park in these! I always get blisters. But it's worth it. True to size.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

LOVE LOVE LOVE
I absolutely ADORE these shorts! As the other reviewer mentioned, these shorts do run slightly big. I normally wear a size 2; however, I purchased these shorts in a size 0 and they fit with a little room to spare. There are loose and uncut seams here and there, something I wasn't expecting for $200+ shorts. However these shorts are sure to stand out. They're fully lined with polyester--it's like a pair of shorts inside of the shorts. For reference I am 5'2 110lbs 25" waist and I purchased a size 0. Also, the color looks blush-y in pictures, but in real life they're a brown base color--no remnants of pink undertones.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

LOVE THIS!
I absolutely love this top! Note that this top is a bit longer than the Signature long sleeves, and the hem is not scalloped like the long sleeve. I wear this top tucked in, so I don't have a problem with the length, however if you're planning on wearing this untucked, it might look like a dress. I'm 5'2, 25.5" waist, 32b; the arm holes fit perfectly--not too big, however it wished it would have been a bit looser in the arm hole area.

Cute YET Unflattering
This bra is very cute looking but it's sooo unflattering on. If you already have a nice set of goods, this bra might work for you--however if you're like me (32b), this bra will push down and smoosh your boobs so that they look nonexistent! This top doesn't work well with low cut or medium cut tops because the middle section will end up showing and it's not as cute as you're probably imagining. If you plan on wearing it alone with something highwaisted, invest in something that will cover your nipples because this bra is sheer to the fullest extent.

My absolute favorite!
My absolute favorite bandeau! It gives the perfect amount of coverage for those large-arm-hole tops! I also love the almost-sweetheart neckline. The classic Free People bandeaus are very unflattering because the neckline goes straight across, this style definitely worked for me.

CUTE
These are really cute! However, for Free People sizing, they run a bit small! I consistently wear an XS in Free People, across the board. I purchased a size 2, however, it ran tight in the hip area. I ended up returning them because it wasn't flattering. I don't have large hips in any sense, so I'm not sure if I received a defective piece. I purchased these shorts because I thought it would look cute with a button up tucked inside, which it did. But anything that isn't cropped or tucked in, will make these shorts look like PJs.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

MEH
I absolutely adore PARKER! However, this top really doesn't cut it for me. First, it runs a bit large. For me, the little middle section starting coming apart after the first wear, I will need to get that fixed. The skirt at the bottom doesn't sit right on my body, I always end up tucking that inside the top part and wear this top with high-waisted pieces. It really starts folding weird after you sit and move around in it a while. I wouldn't purchase this in any other colors. For reference, I'm 5'2, 25" waist, 32B and I purchased an XS. If you're skinnier than me, I wouldn't reccomend this top at all, it will be too big.

Favorite Summer Shorts!
I wear these soooo often in the summer, I think I might need to buy a replacement pair! They run a bit big for 7 for all Mankind sizing--HOWEVER, they shrink very easily in the washer and dryer. I suggest going with your True to Size, as they might be a bit loose your first wear, you won't regret it after the first wash. I'm normally a size 25 in these shorts, I purchased them in a 24 but will be repurchasing my next ones in a 25 because of the shrinkage.

My wardrobe staple
This Camel blouse is PERFECT. It's so easily made to look casual or dressy. I love wearing this top in the Spring/Summer with white shorts and wedges. I usually wear a S/XS but with Equipment shirts I like sizing down to a XS because they'll be loose fitting regardless, but I like how the sleeves are a bit slimmer. One down fall with Equipment blouses is the lack of effort they put in sewing on their buttons, they always end up coming loose or the thread starts unraveling--this never happens to my MBMJ blouses.

Flirty!
This is such a cute top! The bust area has a hook and eye closure. Please be advised that this top runs pretty tight around the bust area. I'm normally a size S/XS so I ordered a size 2--my 32B's were a bit tight inside the bust area even without a bra. Size UP if you have a larger bust. The photos make the top look a bit muted, but the top is a bit brighter and more coral in real life. Beautifully constructed like all Rebecca Taylor pieces :)!
