Give them a couple of days
I ordered these in my usual size and when they arrived I could barely zip them up. Shopbop didn't have a bigger size in stock so I took a gamble to see if I could get them to stretch out. The good news is that after a couple of days, they did stretch to a point where I can comfortably zip up. They also aren't so stretchy that they bag out. Instead it is a miraculous feeling of being "held in" while still being able to eat a huge meal comfortably. The denim feels sturdy, but not stiff. The color is bluer in person than the picture (to me the picture looks a little grey-ish). I'm 5'7" but with shorter legs and the hem hits a tiny bit above the ankle bone. Super flattering cut- fitted through the hip and thigh, then straight from the knee on down.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute, simple sneaker
Recommend sizing up- I originally ordered these in my standard 37.5, found them to be too small so sized up to a 38. Lengthwise they fit great, but were way too loose on my skinny feet. Problem mostly solved by adding padded insoles. Otherwise, cute simple design, great with short, flowy dresses.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Perfect maxi dress
Dress skims over the body without being too clingy or too loose. I'm 5'7" and the length is perfect- I can wear flat sandals without the hem dragging on the ground. I ordered the black, and there are no issues with sheerness. I've also run it through the washer/dryer a few times, and it has come through just fine.

Runs large, difficult to put on
I ordered up a half size in this boot and the Alexander Wang Kori so I could wear thick socks in them. While the Kori boots felt pretty true to size with thick socks on, this boot ran rather large. I compared the footbed with the Kori and found this one to be over a half inch longer! On top of that, it was a struggle to put the boots on as the elastic gore does not stretch much to allow the foot to maneuver in, even though I have narrow/skinny feet. Once my foot was in, the boots looked very nice- very beautiful, smooth leather with a nicely tapered toe. The ankle strap didn't do much for me, and it was nice that it could be removed. It's difficult to find simple, sophisticated-looking ankle boots, but with the size issue and with being nearly impossible to put on/take off these had to be returned.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Narrow footbed
Extremely comfortable heel height, beautiful design, but unfortunately I had to return. I wear a 7.5 and ordered a 7.5. The length of the footbed was fine, but it was very narrow. I have narrow/skinny feet so the straps were kind of loose and yet my toes were hanging off the side of the footbed and touching the ground. This might be solved by going up a size to get a larger footbed, but then it would have been way too loose for me.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Runs a little large
I ordered both this top and the Faye top, and I found this one ran large. I'm a 32D and it was loose under the bust and under the arms. The seams on the front were not flattering for me. Too bad, because the neck/chest/back coverage is great for people who spend a lot of time in the sun. The fabric felt very substantial and sturdy, and this would be a great surf top if it fit.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Unique top
Love this top, very different from what you typically see in Hawaii. I'm a 32D and I was worried there wouldn't be enough coverage in the front, but it fits perfectly fine (though I would probably not do any extreme water sports in it). Back coverage is great. Top feels well-made, though I'm not sure how the mesh will hold up to sunscreen, salt water, and sand over time.
