Beautiful color, softest leather
I am on the smaller end of a size 28 in J Brand. I can fit into a 27 but tighter than I would like to wear them. So I ordered these leather pants in a 28. They were big when I tried them on, but so comfortable. Unfortunately sold out when I tried to return them for a smaller size. I found them in black in a store here in Toronto and because of the stretchy leather, I went right down to a size 26 and, they did not look like I was a stuffed sausage. Alas, I did not waste these lovelies, thank God that I have the best alterations person here. She can make everything fit as if it were made specially for me. Because of the stretch factor in these leather pants, I would definitely recommend these in at least 1 size smaller.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

The perfect jean short
I have searched for years literally, for the perfect jean short and I've finally found them. They are baggy enough but not too baggy and are cut right at the small of your upper leg which makes my legs look long and the pockets accentuate my butt ...and I don't have one. When I dress casually, this is all I reach for now. Very flattering.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

More than just a bathing suit cover-up
Pricey for what you are getting but I truly love these pants. Forget just wearing them as a cover-up, I have already worn them 4 times and I've only had them for a week. I wear them like I wear my jean shorts. I have paired them with a cotton tank, a white leather halter, wore them to my daughter's soccer game. Have received so many compliments. I will definitely get my worth out of them.

Hidden Wedge Booties
Firstly, I just want to say I LOVE Martin Margiela's style period. Unfortunately, I could barely put my foot in this boot. I should have known better, I have 5 pairs of shoes by him and I have always had to go up at least 1/2 a size and a couple of pairs a whole size. All of his shoes are narrow and my feet are on the wide side so that is probably the reason why. Sadly I had to return them and there is no size 8 1/2.

Check Asymmetrical Tank
I have broad shoulders but when I buy anything halter style I can always size down because my body is smaller in proportion to my shoulders. I bought the size 38 but had to return it because where the plunge sat made my back look huge. I could have gone a size larger but than the body would have been too roomy. This is a beautiful halter, perfect for hot summer days, easy, breezy but I think more suited for someone who is petite.

Great everyday sandal for the summer.
Love this colour Pul Linen. This shoe is so versatile, you can throw them on with 3/4 pant, shorts or a cute little dress. I normally where a 71/2 and find I can go up to an 8 because my feet are wide, but in sandals I almost always size down to a 7. I Should have gone with my gut instinct, I got an 8 and the sandal was a little long. I like my heel to sit right on the edge of a sandal. I'm exchanging them for a 7.

Loved these boots but...
I planned on these boots being my new everyday fave's. Great colour and alternative to black, very comfortable and stylish. Definitely runs small but I only went up a 1/2 size and they were completely fine. Although they are very comfortable I felt awkward walking in them. I was like a teenager walking in heels for the first time. I continued to wear them all week because I thought it was the different type of heel and maybe I would get used to them but no such luck. I was told by the my sales assoc in T.O. that it's because the bottom of the boot is so hard and there is no give in the arch or instep. Needless to say I won't be wearing them around town as much as I would have liked, they looked so cute on. Too bad, on to the next pair!

Too beautiful to turn down.
The material and the make of this jump suit is solid. If you look at the runway picture of this outfit on the model it is very baggy and loose on her and maybe the way that the designer intended it to be worn. It looked fabulous on the model but I don't walk the runway and I'm nowhere near her height. This outfit is definitely 2 sizes larger than the average person. Unfortunately, they didn't have a size 4 so I bought the size 6 at the sale price and had it altered as it is shown on the Shopbop model. It turned out perfect. It was a little bit of work but I would have paid full price for this jumpsuit so it was so worth it. Simple elegance and very sexy.

I feel so pretty in this top.
I especially love the gathered elastic band waist on this blouse. I have no waist and the bottom of this blouse hits the right spot and it makes me me look like I have a tiny waist. I've worn it with jean shorts, jeans, dressy shorts, dress pants skirts. It just looks good with everything It is so perfect.

Such a fun trendy piece...
and for the price so worth it. Very flattering on because of the lines. I didn't like the unfinished edge at the bottom of the pant so I just had them hemmed up and it was perfect. The colours and the thickness of the material, I will definitely wear these into the fall.
