Looks aren't everything!
I saved these sandals for my annual trip to Cape Town and wish I hadn't. They look great but are not the least bit comfortable to wear. After 30 minutes of walking around, I have a raw red blister with a red hole in the middle of it right in the middle of my heel, put there by the metal rivet that attaches the ankle strap to the sandal. Not a particularly practical design idea. I'm going to have to pad that rivet with something to be able to use them at all. Form and function are equally important for great design, so in my opinion these are an expensive miss.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Luxe warm-weather shirt
A beautiful casual shirt, drapes beautifully, very flattering shade, will strike just the right note when I'm next in Cape Town.

Style and comfort in equal measure
Recently I banished from my wardrobe most of my fantastically beautiful but horribly uncomfortable extreme wedges and platform stilettos, as I no longer have the endurance to stand in them all night at parties. However, I still desire the height a platform provides. These shoes, then, are a joy to wear, as they give me the elevation I want without the pain of a too-steep angle from toe to heel. They're beautifully constructed too, and have elicited many compliments since I began wearing them. Thank you, shopbop and Mr Weitzman!

These are keepers!
It's always thrilling when your online purchases not only meet but exceed your expectations, and these earrings did just that. They look absolutely brilliant and go with so many outfits. Every time I wear them people tell me how great they are and ask me where I bought them. Highly recommended.

Beautiful earrings for stronger earlobes
These earrings are really quite stunning and a steal at the price. Be warned, though, they are not light enough to sit properly on those without really sturdy earlobes. On my ears they were simply too heavy and hung downwards in an unattractive way, but I have a girlfriend who will do them justice, so come next birthday they're hers.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

These sandals rock!
I was thrilled that these sandals are in every way what I hoped for when I ordered them. Having bought many wedges and high heels online over the years, I have learned that while they look lovely, wearing them is another matter: my feet end up hurting after quite a short period of time. Not so with these shoes; they're designed in such a way that, even though they make you feel much taller, they're easy to walk in and wear. They look great too, and are so easy to slip on. And, just as an aside, the whole ordering and delivery process was effortless and rapid (I live in Australia). Well done, shopbop!

A second skin
Unfortunately, I chose the wrong size, as is often the case when online shopping. That said, the dress was exquisite in its look and feel: true quality and a very funky outfit. Just be aware that it really is 'True to size', in that a 'medium' would be a US 8 or an Australian or UK size 12. The garment, with its silky underlayer, is divine and well worth the $$$$!
