Awesome jacket
I love this jacket!! In real life the base color is not as bright/white but rather a very pale green-tinted gray. This is a great light jacket for a casual, rugged yet still feminine look - the leopard print and the hidden string helps a lot. It arrived with the sleeves appropriately folded so I knew immediately how to style it. I would say this runs a little big though. As a true XS, the P was still quite loose and long on me. Still, it more than does what I expected it to do for my wardrobe. Lovely jacket and now want more Velvet by Graham & Spencer jackets!!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Love this dress!!
I am usually a size XS especially in this label but when I found this dress, XS was not available anymore so I sized up to a Small. It was still a good fit save for the waist. My waist is 25" so the dress is quite loose in my middle and that is my only regret about this dress. I am still thinking about whether I should get it tailored and if the material can handle it. It's a great thick (and comfortable) knit that holds you in, too! I got this in mint and black which is so pretty in real life and not your typical striped pattern (besides already have a lot of navy and whites/black and whites). Overall a great dress and a must buy!

Classic halter lace LBD
I really like the material of this one - it's black lace interwoven with gold thread. Very pretty albeit quite delicate. Sizing was more TTS. I went with a Small thinking it would be very small and tight since my two other Torn dresses I sized up to Small to be sure but for this one I think I could have gone with an XS which is my typical size. The bust area is a little loose for me on the sides because of the halter cut, however it fits well around my hips. Overall a good buy as I got this on final sale. You can never have too many LBDs anyway! ;)

Good quality faux leather pants
I really like these pants! The material is thick good quality faux leather and quite matte actually. I got a size small as I wanted them not too snug considering the structure and fit when I looked at the photos. The small was good as I am heavier set in my lower body but the waist is too loose on me, so I realize now I could have gone with an XS but it would just be a little tighter around the thighs and hips. When worn, these sit higher than I expected them to but it actually works out as it fits really well and skims over your hips. I'm very petite at 5' so these were full length on me - nothing that a good pair of heels won't be able to compensate! The only thing that made me take this down a notch was the squeaky noise it makes when you walk in it. The reviewers before me mentioned it and I didn't think it would be obvious but it is. LOL! Anyway, I can deal with that for good vegan leather pants. Overall a good buy!

Everyone needs one of these purses
I already have a black quilted Affair in the regular size from about three years ago but it's studded with gold hardware and had a circle-shaped quilt pattern versus today's Chanel-like diamond quilt. When I saw this nude mini Affair with silver hardware at 30% off, I thought it was a great price for a nice evening bag. It's typical RM leather these days (some hit or miss, generally okay but not the thick high quality it was in 2008 - that's a given) but the shape is super cute and versatile. This is definitely a mini bag compared to the regular Affair but it is such a good complement to it. I know RM was looking to pattern this after the Chanel flap bag but it is also different enough that it has its own identity (albeit inspired). Overall a great buy at a great price!

Nice tweed pants
These are nice, warm tweed pants that I got on final sale so I thought it was a great deal. Only size 2 was available but since I am heavier set in my lower body, I thought it was fine and I am usually a US 2/Small in bottoms. I bought it knowing full well it was going to be way too long on me. At 5', I will need to have this hemmed and cut about 5-6", taking away most of the flare, which is also fine with me as extremely large flares do not look good on me. I will also have to get the waist taken in a little so I think overall it ran larger than typical for Size 2. I do like the vertical stripes which help elongate me. Overall this is a good buy at final price. At full price, not so sure it would have been!

A lovely, classy dress!
I love this dress and I'm glad I listened to the reviewer before me! When I found this dress they only had size Small left - I'm usually a US size XS/P in dresses but I also knew that Torn by Ronny Kobo typically runs smaller so I decided to risk it and get the Small anyway. I'm glad I did! I have similar waist and hip measurements as the model who's wearing a size S so I knew it was a safe decision. However since I am very petite at 5', this dress fell above my knees versus the much shorter length on the model. Otherwise, everything fit so well though I could have gone down to XS too - it just would have been a tighter, less discreet fit. The very thick knit material sucks you in so that it kind of smooths bumps away and I love that! The print is classy but unique enough not to be boring. I can imagine myself wearing this anywhere from big parties/get-togethers to even professional events. This is so worth it and I'm so glad I got the last piece at that time!

Good layering piece
This top is a lot more blue-gray than the deep lilac pictured. It's a nice, substantial jersey material typical of Susana Monaco that I like. It made me look like I had wider shoulders than normal probably because of the puff sleeves but I did like the scoop back. Overall I'm a little underwhelmed with this purchase but since I got it on sale I'll keep it anyway as a shell for work outfits underneath blazers and jackets. Probably best as a layering piece though I can also see this worn alone casually.

I love this jacket!!
This is one of my absolute favorite purchases from Shopbop, ever! I went with a P and I am usually a US size 0/2 - this fit wonderfully except that with my petite frame, the sleeves were too long. I had the sleeves shortened by a tailor and now the jacket is perfect. If you're petite, I suggest doing the same as it is difficult to roll up the material and rolling up the sleeves would add unnecessary bulk. As someone who appreciates good leather in my bags and shoes, I can say for sure that this is such great quality faux leather - it looks and feels quite real for what it is. It's a great alternative for those who won't buy real leather and at a great price, too. Note that this is a thin jacket (unlined but comfortable), so it's not for winter. I love how this drapes on me - the flaps can close or I can wear it slightly open. Now I want to find this in other colors, too!! (still trying to convince myself I don't need more than the three leather jackets I already have)

Workout bra
I thought I could wear this as more than just a sports bra for working out (since I hardly work out LOL I bought this more as something to wear with lower cut blouses and dresses) but seeing it in person, this is really more of a sports bra than anything else. At full price retail it is not worth it but at the discounted price I got it at, it's not a bad purchase. I got a size XS for this and I'm not busty at all but it felt tight. Could use more wears, I suppose. Overall just an okay buy.
