Dissapointing
I originally ordered this dress from Barneys but turned to Shopbop because I needed a size down. I was surprised when the order from Shopbop arrived because it is a completely different fabric. The dress from Barneys is a beautiful silk and the version from Shopbop is twill. I should have read the Shopbop description closer because it clearly states the fabric. I had just assumed I was ordering the exact same dress because the name, Twist Fluid, is the same on both sites. Anyway, the twill fabric does not work very well. The silk is more appropriate and more fluid for this cut and style. I'm 5'8, 135 lbs, 36D and the size 38 from Shopbop fits better in the waist and armholes than the size 40 from Barneys. Unfortunately the twill version was just not quite right. Returned.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not perfect
Loved the idea of this coat, but in sum it just was not worth the money even on sale. The contrast sleeves are super cute, especially when pushed up. The fit is oversized, as expected (car coats are tailored to be loose) so it would be good for simple layering. For size reference I ordered a 4 and I'm 5'8, 135lbs, 36D and I probably could have sized down. The cotton material is very thin and not practical for winter or cold fall days. You would have to layer very heavily to keep warm at all. It was returned.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Great Pants!
Rag & Bone are my go-to jeans these days and these pants are no exception. The blue velvet is a great color and can really go with anything. They are a great alternative to jeans and can be dressed up or down. Ordered a 28 (I take a 28 in most R&B's except their boyfriend style jeans/pants, I size down) and the 28 is perfect. I have found that most R&B jeans stretch out significantly but these pants do not have much give at all- much more of a more structured look as opposed to a slouchy look. They fit like a glove and are mid-rise, so no risk for your bum hanging out when you sit down or bend over like some of the lower rise pants out there. I wore these into a local boutique that carries them and the sales gal gave a good tip: don't pull up by the belt loops because the fabric is not as sturdy as typical R&B jean fabric. I always remember that when putting these on. All in all, a great buy!

Wanted to love this...
These shorts are well made and good quality leather for the price, but unfortunately they were not the shorts for me. I'm 5'8 / 135 lbs and ordered a 6. They fit ok in the waist and through the thigh but they were about an inch too short for me to feel comfortable in them. I'm 33 years old and even though I work my bunz off in the gym, I simply do not think super short shorts are appropriate. When I ordered them I had the intention of rocking them year round: fall / winter with tights and a chunky sweater and then of course transition into warmer months with heels and a tank top. Even with tights they were still not what I had in mind. Alas, they are going back.

Cute, versatile Espardrilles
Great Espadrilles! I typically wear a 9 &1/2 or 10 and the 10 fits perfectly. The luggage color is very nice -not too dark brown, not too light. The wedge height is perfect...I'm 5'8 and I typically can't wear shoes with a super high wedge. These are tall enough to be sexy without looking ridiculous or being uncomfortable. They look great with jeans, maxi skirts, short skirts, capris, shorts and dresses. These shoes will be a great staple in my summer wardrobe. I am considering ordering them in black as well. :)

Nice shoe, very narrow.
I wanted to love this shoe...the detailing is beautiful and the color is very verstile. Unfortunatley the toe bed is extremely short and oddly narrow. It gives way too much "toe cleavage" to be sexy at all...my toes were very scrunched and it looked strange. I typically wear size 10 shoe and that is what I ordered. Even if I had sized up, it would not have made a difference- the cut of the shoe is just strange. Also despite the beautiful color of the shoe, the material is soft and therefore it could scuff easily and pick up a lot of dirt and stains. Bummer! These shoes are going back.

Strange Fit!
So dissapointing! The pants are a beautiful, versatile brown color and the material is nice, but they simply did not fit right. I'm 5'8 and about 135lbs and I typically wear a size 6 in Vince slacks or a 28/29 in Vince corduroy pants. The waist fit well, but then there was all this extra material through the hip and rear area that made them too big and unflattering. The thigh area was super tight - too tight to be flattering because the material was pulling at the seams. Such a strange fit- they did not look the same on me as they do on the model. I was hoping these pants would be a nice staple work pant or alternative to skinny jeans, but I had to return them.

Odd Fit!
I wanted to love these pants....but alas, the fit was so strange that I had to send them back. I typically wear a size 6 in Vince slacks or a 28 in their corduroy denim- I'm 5/8 and about 135lbs. I ordered the 28 in these pants. The waist fit ok, but there was all this extra material through the hip and butt area, and then pretty tight through the thighs and the rest of the leg. If I went down a size, it seems like they would be too tight in the waist and the thighs. The brown color and material are really nice and the ankle zipper is a fun twist - I had intended for them to be casual pants to wear to the office, or an an alternative to skinny jeans but they just did not look the same on me as they do on the model.
