Business in front, (small) party in back
I love the mix of patterns on this, and the open back is great. (I love open backs where you can still wear a bra.) It's subtle, unexpected, and sexy. Also, this dress is super comfortable. All around win.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Returned this
Not for any issues with the quality or the look -- it's cute -- but because a flowy black I-might-be-pregnant top isn't worth $48. You could get the same shirt at Target for like $9.99. End of story. I don't know why it took me ordering it and trying it on to realize that.

Breezy and sexy for summer
The lacy open back is key for humid summer days & nights when, for whatever reason, you just want to wear a long-sleeved shirt. The black is a little faded, which I like. I can't go bra-less, so I wear a cute black bra underneath. Trashy? Maybe a little. Do I care? Nope.

Oversized, but it works
Fabric is super soft and the cut is flattering. I got the blue, which is the most beautiful cornflower / hydrangea color ... crazy about this shade.

Worth it
Lovely soft material, sexy cut. You could use fabric-tape for daytime and untape for evening. :) I'm between M and L in Lanston tops, and I went with the M because I didn't want it to gape open, which was the right choice for me. The cut is still quite low, so I wear it with a cute black bra just in case. As long as you keep an eye on the neckline, it's fine.

Love Free People, but...
...NOT this shirt. It looks like I took an XXXL Hanes white tee and cut off the neckline and the sleeves. I get what the other reviewer said about keeping it for your fat days and wearing it with uber-skinny pants. Maybe if I'd sized WAY down (like an XS instead of the M I ordered) this would be true ... I mean, I'm all for giant oversized shirts -- I have a ton of them. But when I checked my order form and saw I paid almost $60 for what's basically a cut-up men's tee, it went right back to Shopbop.

Perfect summer sandal
I bought my usual size, a 9, in these, and they're a little floppy on me (it would be helpful if the ankle strap would go one step tighter), but I wouldn't size down. Anyway, that's my only complaint -- otherwise these are perfect. I wanted something as easy and durable as flip-flops, but more stylish, and these are it. You really can't tell they're all-rubber unless you look closely. And they're the perfect shoe for rainy summer days -- doesn't matter if they get wet or muddy.

Something's not working here
I love the print, but the bottom half of the bikini top (if that makes sense -- the portion of fabric that extends down past where normal bikini tops end) didn't stay in place. It rolled and folded up, so I had to tug it down constantly to make it look as cute and retro as it does in the photo. I was sad that I had to return this bathing suit. Note: maybe it would work on someone with a smaller chest (I'm a 34D).
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

unusual but understated
Initially I had some trouble threading these into my ears because of the slight curve at the end, but that happens to me with all earrings where the stud isn't completely straight. I haven't had the problems with them sliding out, like other reviewers mentioned. I love that they're unusual enough for people to notice but not garish at all, like some large hoops can be. You can wear these with jeans or with an evening gown. (Oh, also -- even though I'd read the review that mentioned the resemblance to fish, when they're in your ears, it's totally unnoticeable!) We'll see if the gold plate lasts, but for the price, I think these are great.

delicate and understated
I haven't worn this long enough to know whether the patina will dull, but right now I am in love with it. I wear it on my pinky because it just seems to work there -- it's so delicate -- but because it's adjustable you could wear it on any finger. Love the subtle sparkle.
