Simple, comfortable sandal
These sandals are immediately comfortable, which I think is their most redeeming quality in addition to being a very clean and basic silhouette. Absolutely no break-in time required, no rubbing or blistering. Not a huge amount of support in the rubber sole of the shoe, but certainly better than some sandals, and enough to be comfortable. Not sure that these will hold up for years to come, but points for being wearable right away and for being an unfussy design that will go with anything.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Versatile and distinctive earrings
Had been eyeing these and finally ordered them with the extra sale...and am so glad I did. I put them on right after they arrived and went for drinks and immediately got compliments. There's an elegance to the line and curve of these little earrings, but they also have a boho/edgier feel to them that works well with animal prints as well as neutrals. I am always looking for stand-out earrings that don't overwhelm my small face, and these fit the bill. Very much as pictured in terms of fit (on the model) and color.

Cute - as pictured
This dress is very much as-pictured in terms of fit, color, and overall look. I decided I wasn't wild about the colors on me, but the pattern is fun and interesting. Loved the pockets and length. Not wild about the texture of the fabric - I thought it was very rough for a silk dress. I found it to be generally true to size though slightly on the small side. I usually take an S or XS; the S in this was slightly snug in the elasticized waist. Personally decided to send it back as it is similar to other things I own and wasn't enough of a wow for me to keep it, though I think it's a good little summer dress that would be a versatile closet piece.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Just so-so
These are as-pictured but the design isn't great. The two elasticized rings are very tight as compared to the other three rings with stones (which are size 7, as indicated), so on me it was uncomfortable and clunky to wear them all together. I found them too fussy for what they are, so I returned them.

Soft, versatile layering piece
I got the "Toffee" color which is a nice versatile taupe, slightly darker/browner than pictured but basically what I expected and just what I was hoping for. It's a loose cut, a bit on the large side but this is as-expected for a one-size product, and the drape is just beautiful. I'm looking forward to layering this in all seasons. It will be great to throw over a dress on cool summer evenings, and equally cute over a tank and jeans. The cashmere is light and soft. It was a splurge, but I love it.

Cute, comfy, shimmery top!
The highlight of this shirt is definitely the metallic shimmer. It's a subtle yet noticeable silver shimmer that moves easily from work to play. The shirt is a darker navy than appears in the photo but works beautifully with the metallic element. The fit is not perfect on me. I got an XS because of the relaxed fit, which is definitely the right size (5'6", 34B, 130), but it's too short on my long torso. The shirttail cut drapes low enough in front and back but comes up too high on the sides, so I have to layer it over a tank. However, I love the color, drape, and comfort so I'll keep it. Good balance of fitted forearm sleeve to relaxed dolman sleeve element.

Fine, but does run large, as indicated!!
I should have paid closer attention to the "fit" comments provided...this ring does run large! I have slender fingers and it is too large; the fit info says it's a 7.5 and I'm probably a 6.5 or 7 in ring sizes. It's fine, but nothing to write home about. It's an easy piece to jazz up a look, and would be nice for the holiday season if you're looking to add a bit of sparkle. Not bad at the sale price.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Love it! Great messenger bag
I got this in the "Cinnamon" color which is a bit deeper than it looked to me online. I love this bag, even though the color is a bit more dramatic than I expected, it goes wonderfully with navy and black (which is great for my wardrobe...), as well as jeans and other neutrals, of course. I love the navy on the strap, which pulls it together when you're wearing dark colors. I found the length of the strap is perfect for an easy cross-body look, and I love the leather detailing and the weight of the canvas. The size is great, big enough for a few books etc. but not overly bulky, and there a zipper along the bottom to extend or shrink the bag's capacity, which I think is a nice touch. Am nervous about the lining because of the other review, and it's a bit pricey for me for a bag that isn't all leather, but I'm hoping that the splurge will pay off! Love the bag, love Shopbop.

Go-to wardrobe staple!!!
These jean leggings are amazing. I have three pairs in different colors and wear them constantly. They are substantial enough to function as pants on their own, but slim enough to work layered under dresses, tunics and long tops. The are SO flattering, and I've had many friends ask about them. Look great with boots, heel, and flats (they are the perfect length on me: I'm 5'6" and they hit just below my ankle). My black pair which I purchased last winter has stretched a bit, particularly in the knees, but considering how much I wear them this is not surprising. Great for travel, different times of year, big dinners where you need a waistline with a little give... LOVE them.
