Super soft, very versatile style :: LOVE
Again, Splendid does it! The material of this tube dress is super soft and the quality seems great. I have yet to wear it and wash it, but it looks like it would hold up nicely. I will most likely wear this tube dress as a skirt (as pictured) top part folded down/over as folded waistline. I originally got the greenish/grey color in small and I loved that color when it arrived, but I thought the style looked a little too tight on me in the waistline so I exchanged it for a medium for more comfort. Of course, the color was sold out (!) so I had to get it in a white medium. Bummer. However, white is always fresh and nice looking for the summer time and it will be very versatile. I will wear this white skirt with grey or black tee, a chambray shirt and my black suede booties until the weather gets hotter then exchange booties for sandals! You can definitely dress this skirt up or go casual. One word: perfection!

Velvet does it again!
I really love Velvet clothing. I am usually a size small in clothing, but I usually get sweaters in size medium because I like them a little looser fitting. This sweater is form fitting, so I am glad I got it in a medium. It is comfy, soft and very versatile. I have already worn it many times and I've only had it for about 2-3 weeks. The color is exactly as pictured, an overall light beige color with different tones of beige when you look up close. It is slightly see though because it is knitted and the knitting is beautiful and even (not loose or chunky). High quality. I am actually wearing it today with black skinny jeans, black tank top underneath and dark maroon suede booties. Can't wait to wear it with my white jeans for summer (as pictured). I am so happy I got this sweater.

Not for me
From what I've read, people have been raving about Genetic Denim, but I don't think this brand is for my body type. I am athletic build, 5'6, size 28 and I usually have minimal problems finding styles that fit, so I wanted to give GD a try. The quality looked good, but this style was very loose around the waist and thighs and is not fitted as pictured. It is not your typical stretchy, skinny jeans. More like a straight leg jean with a very straight, loose waist. Definitely, not for me. The color is nice tho. A slightly greyish, off-white. I will try and get the same color in a different brand. My usual favorite brand jeans is Citizen of Humanity.

Soft, comfy and versatile
I am usually a size small in clothing on brands overall, but thought this skirt was a little tight in the waistband so I exchanged it for a medium size. I figured it wouldn't matter much whether I got it in small or medium, since the skirt is all jersey and the style is pretty forgiving (ruched on both sides). I rather be comfortable wearing it without feeling too tight around the waist. I love the blue/greyish color (reminds me of denim). Pretty pricey for a jersey skirt ($99). However, I can see myself wearing this skirt a lot, either dressed up with a white blousy shirt and a blazer, or casual with a tee, sandals and utilitarian jacket. Very versatile style and color! I'm excited to wear it this summer and for years to come.

This sweater is the great!
I'm 5'6, usually a size S in clothing. Occasionally, I do buy sweaters in a medium (also depending on the brand) but mostly because I like sweaters a bit larger, or longer. That's what I had to do for this sweater. The size S fit slim on me and looked beautiful, but I exchanged it for a medium so that the length came down a tad bit longer and so I could comfortably scrunch up the arms the way it looks on the model. I love stripes!! And the effect of the sheer, knit layer on top of the stripes is gorgeous! So versatile with black jeans, black leather pants/ skirt, white/ grey/ blue jeans...and the list goes on! Great buy!! Quality rocks.

Too short for my liking
I'm 5'6, athletic slim body type and a size S in clothing. I had looked forward to receiving this "rosy gold/black" chunky knit sweater. However, it felt shorter on me than how it looks on the model. It was 2-3 inches too short for my comfort. Also, the color and quality was not worth the price. It looks like it wouldn't hold up nicely after use. The color is more a dull beige. I keep looking at Free People clothing for its Bohemian Chicness, but the brand usually disappoints. Boring. I returned it.

Great Spring/Summer purchase
You know you've purchased the right kind of shoe if several people give positive compliments the first day wearing them. This happened to me with these adorable, summery Vince shoes. I fell in love with these shoes the moment I laid my eyes on them! Ordered my usual size 7 (which mostly never fails) however, VINCE brand is new to me and I had to order down a half size to a 6.5. The rubber sole is a tad on the heavy because of its thickness, however, it doesn't cause me any discomfort. Shopbop is my favorite place to purchase most of my clothing and shoes. Superb customer service, friendly staff and fast shipping/easy return! GOOO SHOPBOP!

Gorgeous but TOO LONG
I loved this dress when I got it, however, it was way way too long for my 5'6 frame (I ordered a size small). If you're very tall, or willing to spend more money altering it, this dress fits nicely and is super comfortable. I returned it because I am neither of those. Too bad:(

Great purchase!!!
I am SO in love with these shoes. I would write love letters if that was appropriate. I have worn them so much since I got them. They go with everything. I mostly wear them with skinny jeans because I like to show off the tassels that are on each side of the zippers. A very subtle but edgy detail! They are true to the picture. I found that the black suede color fades a bit as you use the shoes, however, that is to be expected since it's suede. They are still gorgeous! The heels are the perfect height. Comfortable to wear all day with no problems what so ever. I love that the shoe itself is black and the heel/sole is dark brown because I love that combination and it makes it bit more edgy. Highly recommend!

These shoes go with everything
These shoes truly go with everything and I am so SO happy with my purchase. I had ordered a size 7, which is my normal size and it fits perfectly. However, the first pair I ordered had uneven stitching on the top seam, so I returned them but immediately ordered a replacement pair. They are perfect. I wear them with skinny jeans, boot cut jeans, long flowy skirts and shorter skirts & dresses. Because of the neutral color, I can wear any colors on my clothing. The chunky heels also makes it easy to wear with anything. They look edgy enough for me because of the heel without all the bells & whistles. Simple, neutral & edgy booties. One more thing that I love about them is that the opening around your ankle fits snug, so your foot won't swim around in them. Surprisingly comfortable to wear all day despite the high heel! LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes.
