Stylish sandals, need to size up
I tried these on at my local department store for size and I am glad I did as I am usually a 6.5 in ballet flats and a 7 in sandals but I needed the 7.5 in this style. These shoes look great on my slightly wider feet and although they are not super comfortable in the toe post area and feels hard when walking, however I think that most thong style wooden sandals would feel like this anyway. I like them enough to purchase in additional colours as they are stylish and very well made. Good shoes for a few hours of slow walking or shopping but probably not for all day walking around. Overall I am very happy with the quality of Sam Edelman shoes.

True love
I absolutely love these ballet flats, made with soft leather with good padding for the bottom of the heel area these shoes are comfortable to wear out of the box and look and feel great. Absolutely no discomfort or rubbing in the back of the heel area as the leather is nice and soft and the shoe is very well made. I am a size 6.5 and these are definitely true to size. I did also try on the size 6 and 7 at my local department store and the 6 fit but was a bit too snug and the 7 was only slightly longer in length than the size 6.5, the difference between the 6.5 and 7 was smaller than the difference between the 6 and 6.5 so if size 6.5 was not available I would probably purchase the 7 rather than the 6. I cannot wait to add more Felicia flats to my ballet flat collection, the price is also very good on Shopbop, I think these flats are great value for the quality.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Perfect shorts
These are my favourite pair of Spanx shorts, I purchased these and also the Simplicity Girl shorts and the Trust Your Thinstinks Mid-thigh shaper to wear as modesty shorts under short dresses and skirts. These shorts are made of a think material with built in underwear which I love. I purchased the size S and they are quite tight but a still good fit regardless as the tightness of the thicker material creates a better compression/slimming effect for the stomach area. I highly recommend these shorts as they are very comfortable, and well made. The shorts will slightly loosen after one wash in warm water.

Comfortable shorts
This mid-thigh shaper is a tad too long to wear under mini dresses/skirts but good for any above the knee but not quite mini length dresses/skirts such as office skirts and tea dresses. It is well constructed and made of a medium weight material with light compression in the stomach area. The material feels very nice and comfortable when worn, however I have long nails which are a bit pointy so one of my nails went right through these shorts when pulling them up so be careful!

Cute but lace ripped
I loved the lace on these bike shorts which are a good length to wear under mini dresses and skirts and made with a thin material. Unfortunately the lace ripped at the seams after only a few wears. The short were comfortable to wear but I feel that the construction and quality of these shorts are not very good.

No padding/lining & itchy clasp area
I think that it would be helpful if Shopbop considered adding information where bra's have no padding/lining at all. I expected this bra to be at least lightly lined but it is just made of one layer of a thin stretchy material. I agree with a previous reviewer that the clasp area is itchy and uncomfortable. I am a 34C and I purchased a size M but the L probably would have been a better fit. Overall not impressed with the quality of my two Only Hearts brand purchases.

Very cute
A great size for everyday wear, small but not tiny, love the hammered effect and rose gold tone, good quality and price and I will also be purchasing the silver colour in the future.

Too sheer
I purchased these shorts in the nude colour which is quite sheer as the material is very thin so I would not feel comfortable wearing these shorts under unlined light colour summer dresses (which was my intention). These shorts are the perfect length to wear under mini dresses and skirts. Quality and fit is good but I prefer the Spanx Simplicity Girl shorts which are made of a thick material with built in underwear.
