The perfect distressed skinny
This may be one of my best purchases ever on Shopbop.com, which is saying a lot since I'm a frequent flyer around here. :-) In real life, the jeans look exactly like they do on the site. The fabric is on the thicker side so I feel it will be durable and wear well over time. The fit is TTS. I'm always a 24 in 7FAM, as I am with these jeans. I'm 5'2" and I love that I don't have to hem these...there's a slight scrunch near the ankles but that's it. The color is awesome -- kind of a dark and moody blue/gray/black, with the small distressed areas perfectly placed and not obnoxious looking like the big sloppy holes in other distressed jeans. Lastly, these jeans suck everything in and make your legs look so slim and shapely. By the same token, they also kind of flatten my butt a bit....then again, my butt looks flat in most jeans. :-) I give these jeans two thumbs waaaay up! Buy them!!

Must be very lean to wear this
I'm 5'2" and small-framed, but I couldn't pull off this tank. For reference, I'm 99 lbs, 32C bust, 23.5" waist, with a skinny-soft build. I ordered this in a Small, which is one size larger than normal for me, but it still made me look chunky. Here's why: my chest and armpit area are not toned at all -- the top of the tank is "grabby" and pushes inwards like an elastic band, which emphasizes my layer of fat there. It didn't lay flat against the chest like it does on the model...instead, it created a bulge that goes all the way across from armpit to armpit. I would recommend this tank ONLY for women who are extremely lean in the torso and who do not have any softness under the arms.

Cute, fun, basic tee
This is a fun tee with a little graphical interest...great for weekends or when you want to add a casual edge to your outfit. I would describe this as TTS, if not a touch on the roomy side.

Casual, flattering, simple top!
Very soft, delicate material that hangs beautifully. Very flattering! TTS. You'll need to wear a black bra or tank underneath.

Very leather-like!
The material is SUPER soft on the skin, and looks convincingly like leather due to the subtle "scale"-like texture. The color is "charred" -- which just means it's black. These are skinny pants and they do cling to the leg very nicely, but the waist is slightly large. If you're between sizes or have a small waist, I advise ordering 1 size down. I did notice that the fit around the tush is slightly flattening -- I have other jeans that do a better job of lifting and rounding. I'm 5'2" and love that I don't have to hem these, I just let them bunch slightly around my ankles. These are awesome rocker pants! Get them!

Can't go wrong with Sundry!
I ordered this top in a 1 - I believe it only comes in 1, 2, or 3. Normally, I take tops in XS, but 1's in Sundry always works great for me....not too big. The fabric is super soft and cozy, and the cut is very flattering. I was worried that it would be boxy or shapeless, but it's not because the material has a nice drape. The top is on the short side so taller ladies may want to size up. I highly recommend this fun top for a casual day!

VERY low cut
This is a beautiful top, but as a petite person the cowl neckline is just way too low for me. If I turn even just slightly, the neckline will shift and expose a boob. I suppose I could've worn a cami underneath, but that would've ruined the line and the "look." Sadly, I had to send it back. For reference, I'm 5'2" and 99 lbs. One last thing -- as with most Helmut Lang jersey tops, the sleeves are quite tight. I have slightly larger arms for my frame. But in general, I would describe this top as TTS...you'd just have to be OK with tighter arms.

Soft as a cloud!
If you're looking for a super-soft, cozy, neutral colored knit to keep you toasty on cold fall or winter days, THIS IS IT! Finding warm yet non-itchy sweaters is a lot harder than it should be, so I was thrilled when I tried this on and felt the feathery soft material. I plan to pair this with skinnies and ankle boots, or with boyfriend jeans and stilettos. Note that this sweater is boxy and loose, as it appears on the model. I took my usual XS and feel that it gives me that boyishly slouchy, "gamine" look. I also like that this is dry clean OR hand wash (it'll go in the Delicates cycle of my washer, and dry flat). I'll reach for this piece again and again this winter!

The perfect everyday necklace
I like to accent my look each day with a bit of an edge, and this delicate little necklace is perfect! I love how subtle it is....you have to look very closely to see that it's a skull. The little crystals give it a touch of girly sparkle and interest. It's so versatile. I will be wearing this every day, either alone or layered with a longer necklace!

BUY THIS!
First, the material is so soft you won't want to take it off! And I like that the material has just a teeny bit more heft to it, than, say, a Splendid t-shirt. It's a bit stretchy and feels very high-quality. Second, the fit is great. I'm normally a XS (5'2", 98-100 lbs) but this shirt in Small fits me really well. I just tuck in the front loosely and it drapes beautifully. It's a little long, but all t-shirts are long on me! My guess is that, because of the bit of stretch, this shirt in Small would fit well on ladies who wear Small AND on those who wear XSmall. Lastly, the color is a nice neutral tannish-grayish color...matches with everything! If they made this tee in other colors, I'd snatch them up in a heartbeat. I wasn't familiar with Sundry before but now I'll be paying more attention to this label!
