Great Jeans for Curvy Figures....
I am small with a very curvy bottom & larger thighs. Securing a great fit in jeans is a challenge. You know the story: to achieve a good fit in the waist, the thighs and bottom are too snug. If the bottom and thighs fit, then the waist is huge. My absolute peeve are the jeans that are characterized as wide but fit like sausage casings in the thighs with a humungous bell below the knee. None of that is true with these jeans. They are in my opinion - perfection. The waist and bottom are contoured to fit close to the body with a full and easy leg. The wide palazzo leg accommodates rounder thighs, yet the jeans hug the bottom hug waist nicely with zero gapping. The leg is wide but not ridiculously so. They simply have a very relaxed, sophisticated and cool vibe. The fabrication is incredibly soft and luscious in a high quality lighter weight denim with just enough structure to minimize flaws and that will be comfy in warm weather. These may be my favorite jeans ever!

Feminine Military - NOT an Oxymoron
This was my first ShopBop purchase... and it is my favorite so far. This jacket is the most adorable take on the military trend that I have seen yet. The jacket is structured but the fabrication is gloriously soft against the skin and the fit is perfection. The olive color is spot on - a bright army green not the somber flack jacket green- really flattering for the complexion. The double layer of ruffles along the hemline is a head-turner and the skinny belt provides just the right finishing touch. I wore this out to dinner and practically every woman in close proximity complimented me on it. It is a winner and a stunner....

Elegant and Flattering Jean
This was my first experience with James denim, but I doubt it will be my last. I was quite surprised at how much I liked these jeans. Usually I have to invest a lot more in my jeans because I am curvy and disprorportionate (10 inch difference between waist and hip, athletic thighs/legs). These were very reasonably priced, and they fit me fabulously. The denim blend is lightweight which I like that for wardrobe versatility. They are very stretchy but appear to maintain their integrity very well. The waist is contoured so there is no gap, and the jeans hug the booty to give a superb "rear" view. They are extremely comfortable, no unpleasant pinching or other peculiarities. No suffering for fashion here. These will be perfect for casual Fridays at work, date night, etc. I am considering the skinny straight leg version as well. One note....though my regular size fit fine, I could have sized down. If you like a really snug fit, size down.

Sexy Sassy Wedges
How I love these shoes! They are everything I had hoped they would be. Classy, ultra feminine and a little bit naughty. The suede is very good qualityfor the price, and the tan color is rich and lush - perfect for the fall. They are very high wedges but the platform style makes them wearable and relatively comfy. I have them on at work today with a maxi length skirt, and they are all the rage. I have had numerous compliments... and quite a few second glances. That is always a good thing. I can see wearing these with my flare leg jeans and with my Houlihans to switch things up. These were definitely a wise purchase, and I highly recommend them. I may even return for the olive color!

Stylish But Not For Narrow Heels/Feet
Well the booties are magnificent. Great leather and sexy platform style. The problem for me was that my feet swam in them. Every step was tedious and calamity-prone. I (bravely?)wore them out once so returning them is not an option. Unfortunately they are now "on display" in my closet - with a few other lamentable "misses".

Beautiful in Theory....
Though I adored the drama and style of this blouse I decided to return it. The sheer fabrication (on the sleeves) was slightly scratchy/rough against my skin which ulimately would have interfered with my enjoyment of the blouse and precluded a lot of wear. It is too pretty (and pricey) to hang in my closet when someone else (who is perhaps not as finicky) could enjoy it.

Noteworthy Wedges
I was hesitant about these wedges.... Was I ever pleasantly surprised when I received them. They are gorgeous. The ruched leather is to-die for and the taupe color is rich and saturated. The heel height is comfortable enough for all-day wear. Just enough "peep" to show off your pedi but not so much that you look like a Flinstone. Perfect with a shorter inseam skinny jean as well as a skirt/dress and tights. Thanks to the Editors for a great pick. Would probably have passed them up otherwise.... Very pleased with this purchase .

Glamorous & Dramatic Jacket
This may be my favorite purchase so far this season. The jacket is beatiful, a head-turner and right on trend. The sequins are subdued not the old school shiny ones so the overall effect is classy not "Disco Fever" glitzy. It's like a treasure discovered at a consignment shop except the biker style places it solidly in the 21st century. So much versatility in wear-equally appealing zipped as not. The zippers on the sleeves are a nice punctuation. The lining feels soft and smooth against the skin. It is lightweight so layering will be a breeze. Thrilled I got this piece before it sold out in my size. Highly recommended....

Exquisite Jeans
Excellent fit and superb fabrication. These jeans are without rival in my opinion. Perfect for fall boots and booties. Exactly what I was looking for and have come to expect from AG. Worth the price. Kudos to ShopBob for making designer shopping seamless... for a small town girl like me.
