quality & comfort. understated style.
I am impressed with the quality of leather and construction, which is expected at this price point. I normally wear 7, sometimes 7.5 because of wide feet, and 37 fit perfectly. 37.5 would have been better to give some room for socks, but 38 was too large. Looks like they started making half sizes but not on shopbop yet. I walked around for hours in them and the heels are sturdy and provide good weight distribution, preventing fatigue. Cute with skinny pants, bootcut, skirts, leggings, barefoot, scrunchy socks, etc. BTW, they are"made in China", only printed on the inside of the boot.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

casual comfort style
Soft and roomy. Looks as cute as in the photos. Especially like the rolled up sleeves secured with buttons. Works well with skinny jeans, leggings, etc. Pricey, but I'll get a lot of wear out of this.

nice basic piece. comfy.
I debated whether to keep it or not. The price is fair... the fabric is super thin but doesn't lack quality. It's not sheer but very form-fitting, so it almost looks like you can see through. It reminds me of the spandex skirts I wore in the 80's. I was worried it would be uncomfortable with no slit, but the fabric stretches out. I would describe this as a skirt version of leggings. I'm a shortie (5'4"), and have to fold the waist band and hike it up to make it a knee length skirt. At my age, I wont be pairing it with a tight top, so thicker waistband isn't a problem. I normally wear size 26 jeans, and size 2 fits.

well made shoes, but not for me.
I liked the crisscross straps and textured burgundy velvet in the photos. Unfortunately, I didn't like them as much in person. It is difficult to judge where the straps land on the ankles or how shiny the buckles are in pictures. It would have helped to see a picture of a shoe on a model. I found the buckles too bulk and metal holes too shiny since I need something more elegant. I'd say the qualiy of the material and construction were very good, and the color (burgundy) looked exactly as in the photos.

Just OK.
I bought Small in Silver/Gray on sale. It is nice but definitely not worth the full price. I'm between S and XS, so this fit well for me. Because of the bouffant style, it would look better looser, so when in doubt, I recommend sizing up. I don't think the color is right for me, I need to experiment with some jewelery and make-up and pair them with colored jeans. Otherwise, nice fabric and beautiful workmanship. The tiny snap buttons on the sleeves are great.

Tempted to buy them in other colors.
Diane Von Furstenberg does not disappoint. Even the packaging was nice. I have bunions with long second toes, and sometimes the footbeds fit awkward in sandals. These fit beautifully and comfortably, maybe because they're barely open-toe. I'm between 7 and 7-1/2, and normally wear 7-1/2 DVF shoes, but 7 fit well. I can see that after hours of wearing the fabric would stretch out a bit, and the covered heels will get dirty. I got the Cranberry and they're very close to the picture, between red and magenta.

Good quality. Good price. Love the fit.
I like these so much, I immediately ordered another pair in Tabasco (red), which I don't like as much. I agree with the earlier review that Onyx fit tighter than other colors, but the difference is minor. If anything, the Onyx fabric seems to keep the shape better. I'm 5'4" 114 lbs and usually wear size 26 and got 26 in these. They fit perfectly well; I don't think I could have gone down a size without getting wrinkles on the back of the thighs- I see that on a lot of women and don't think that's a good fit. The price is reasonable compared to other brands. I don't know how these will survive the wash; I'm tempted to order another pair for a backup.

A must on a rainy day or on muddy road.
I enjoy wearing them out in heavy rain and on wet roads. I usually wear size 7 or 7.5 and got 7, and they fit well with a pair of thick socks. I bought the black, and they fog up and look like dark gray most of the time. I bought Hunter buffer spray and shoe sponge to get the shine back. They wroked, but the sheen disappears pretty quickly. These boots are pricey considering they're rubber boots.

Cheap. Not water-resistant.
I bought the white one, looked great with summery outfits. I only got to wear it a few times though. I spilled coffee on it and later noticed that the liquid seeped into the face of the watch. It would've been less noticeable on black, but the white face was not so forgiving. I opened the back of the watch and tried cleaning it, but the face is made of cheap laminated paper and was permanently stained. I ended up throwing it in the trash. Bummer.

Love the quality of fabric & color.
I love the purple/ burgundy denim trend this fall. They're easier to wear than the brights of the summer. Most denim brands are making burgundies, so I tried J Brand, Paige, Rich & Skinny (my usual go-to's since I hate logos on my bums) and settled on Rag & Bone in Wine. They all fit nicely, but R&B fabric was thinner and softer, just better quality. I normally wear size 26, and 26 fit perfectly. They stretched out a bit after a few hours of wear but didn't look sloppy. I don't think I could have gone a size smaller. If you're between sizes, a smaller size could work. I haven't washed them yet, so it'd be interesting to see if they're colorfast. If so, I might get them in Iris (blue) as well. Besides, I like buying from shopbop- no shipping, no sales tax, easy return.
