Better for tall people
I was SO hoping this would work out. I always have a heck of a time finding a coat that fits because at 5'2" and 97-100 pounds (depending on what I had for dinner the night before!), most coats are cut too wide and boxy for me. This is true of the Varick, even in the size 0. It looked like I was playing dress-up in Daddy's closet! If I were just 3-4 inches taller, it could've worked and the boxiness would've come off as "slouchy cool," but with my woeful shrimpiness, it just didn't work. I did love the color -- it looks like a darker military green IRL than in the photos. The material is gorgeous and soft. Like most coats that are longer than hip-length, this style is just not meant for shorties, sorry to say. Sigh.

Thumbs up!
I didn't buy this top at Shopbop, but here's a review in case it helps anyone. This top is packed with character AND it's insanely flattering. I was worried that because of the stretchy fit, it would show all my lumps and bumps, but it doesn't!! It's a thin, soft material that skims your body without being tight. The print is playful and looks awesome with boyfriend jeans or skinnies. It is true to size. In my opinion, it's totally worth the price tag!

Beautiful!
This necklace is a statement necklace without being a POW in-your-face statement. It can be worn equally well with a tee and jeans, or a little black dress and killer heels. The gold is a lovely burnished, muted color and I'm very happy with the quality. I love the geometric and modern yet tribal/boho feel of the design. Unique and edgy and totally my style!

Cute, everyday top
Very cute, and I agree with the other reviewer that it is on the short side, but that worked OK for me since I'm 5'2". The material is clingy and it definitely maximizes the chest. I wear a 30D/32C bra and although my usual XS fit me properly, I do feel that my chest is rather on display. If you're busty, you may want to size up.

Looked like a linebacker
I'm petite and small-framed, but I do carry my weight in my upper arms. The fuzzy black stripes only emphasized that and made me look hulkish up top. But if you have slender arms and an average to small bust, then this top would be adorable on you!

Fun, stylish jacket!
This jacket is much lighter weight than it appears in the photo - the description states that it is 90% wool and 10% cashmere, but it feels more like a thin, delicate silky material to me. Because of the thinness, it wears a little more drapey/foldy/wrinkly in real life, and is not nearly as thick or woolen-looking as depicted in the photo. That said, this is a beautiful little jacket. It's well-cut and very flattering. I plan to always wear it open, with the sleeves pushed up. It's a little boxy when buttoned closed so I'll probably avoid that. I'll style it with leather leggings or skinny jeans, a James Perse tee, and ankle boots. It's a keeper!

Kind of unremarkable
This coat looked great on the model, but, she's a model. I'm a 5'2" small-framed woman in my late 30s, and this coat looked totally blah on me. I was swimming in it. The cut reminds me of that smock you get at the hair salon - sort of blocky and shapeless. I was hoping the material would be at least a little drapey, which might have helped to give it some shape, but the fabric was sturdy, thickish, and a little on the stiff side. If you're looking for an everyday basic and you're 5'6" or taller, this might be for you.

Super awesome fun and rockin' jeans!
Two words: GET THESE. It's hard to tell from the photos, but these jeans have shades of beige and tan in addition to gray and black, which makes them very versatile. The print is bold, yet subdued enough so as not to blind anyone or put their eye out. These are true to size, slimming, and very flattering.

Insanely flattering basic
The seaming on this deceptively simple top is what MAKES it. The material is super-soft, and the lines elongate and create a slimming effect. It fits sleekly against the body and is TTS. I can't wait to pair this with leather skinnies or jeggings! This top is worth the high price tag because it is a superbly cut, timeless staple in a neutral tone that you will wear for seasons to come.

Only for the skinny-armed
I love the idea of this top, but it's hard to pull off if you don't have slender arms. I'm 5'2", 100lbs, 30D. I would describe my upper arms as average-sized and, um, "soft." I ordered my usual size of XS and although the top fits, it's tight around the upper arms, armpits, and shoulders. The end result is somewhat "sausage-in-a-net." Also, there is a prominent seam on the upper arm, which I found very uncomfortable -- it kind of feels like a bra strap that has fallen off your shoulder, but you can't pull it back up. This top is very long....I tried to balance the length with dark jeggings and heels, but still, the length was overwhelming on me. Unfortunately, in my excitement, I had cut the tags off immediately and wore it out the night I received it....only to realize later that the top is not flattering at all to my body type. Now I can't return this $245 item. But, if you are average height or taller, with slender arms/shoulders and a small bust, you might love this top!
