My New Favorite Watch!
Typically, I'm a silver/white gold only girl. I don't wear gold because it's just never been a color I think looks good on me. However, when I saw this rose gold watch by Michael Kors I was in love! It's the best of both worlds. The color is rosy and warm enough it will work with the two or three gold pieces that I have and still goes great with my silver and white gold jewelry. The face on this is very large (about the size of some men's watches) but that's what I wanted. I prefer a masculine watch to balance out my corporate and casual wear. Plus, I also think it works as a nice contrast to the more feminine rose gold. I too had to take 4 links out but that's the norm for me. I'll admit, based on previous reviews. I'm slightly worried that the rose gold will wear away on the under side of the watch but it's a risk I'm willing to take. Thanks Shopbop for getting the watch to me quickly! This was an anniversary present from my hubby and I couldn't wait to wear it!!

Cute and Funky!
This necklace immediately caught my eye because it's so unique and funky without being too over the top! I own a few Marc by Marc Jacobs watches and the quality is always terrific as is this piece. The crystals on this are really well done and the watch on the back though small is easy to read. It's a great way to add a little twist to whatever you're wearing. Highly recommend.

Great jeans!
I have several pairs of 7FAM jeans and these are probably one of my faves. The dark wash is universally flattering and makes it easy to dress up or down. Agree with the previous reviewer that being short (I'm 5'3") the flip flop length is actually perfect for me and allows me to wear about a 3 in. heel. I prefer that though because that means I don't have to have these hemmed. These run true to size. I'm typically a size 4 in jeans (size 27 in 7FAM) and the 27 in these fit perfectly. They do stretch out some but not too bad. Overall, I highly recommend these. They're a wardrobe staple for me as I've gotten tons of use out of them.

Gorgeous scarf!
Purchased this scarf in pink multi as a gift for my Mom for Christmas. I received it yesterday and now I hate to give it up! The colors on this are absolutely gorgeous and warm. Since there is such a variety of colors, it will go with a lot of different jackets. It's even warm enough to wear by itself over a sweater on chilly days. Not sure if it sheds or not like the other reviewer noted since I haven't worn it (though I've been tempted). However, it really is a statement piece. Highly recommend!

Luscious Coat!
This coat is even more gorgeous in person than it is online. The fur collar looks and feels real and adds a nice detail. Love the fact that the sleeves both zip and button so it adds interest and also allows you to fit the sleeves over gloves. Great quality and attention to detail. One thing to note: the "coat" is really more of a trench jacket so it's not super heavy. To me, this makes it more versatile as you can wear it without the fur into the spring but since it's not very substantial this probably won't work for very cold days. However, the fur collar does add warmth which helps quite a bit. This runs true to size. Sometimes BB Dakota can run small (I have several of their coats and jackets) but this is just as it should be. I typically take a small in coats and jackets and the small fit perfectly in this. Overall, definitely worth the money. Highly recommend.

Cute tweed jacket!
This jacket is even cuter in person than it is online. The tweed is heavier so it's perfect for fall and even into winter. Given the nice mix of colors this will look just as good with black as it will with brown and green. I wasn't sure on sizing since I'm not familiar with the Free People brand. I'm typically a 2/4 (XS/S) in most blazers but I had read other reviews that this ran on the small side so I went with a size 6. I'm glad I did b/c the 6 was snug in the arms. It wasn't so tight that it was overly constricting but snug enough to make me think I probably couldn't go down a size. A little roomy in the chest but I can have that altered if need be. Excellent quality and well made. Highly recommend.

Stunning Vest!
I didn't have super high expectation for this vest because I'm not really familiar with the Jack by BB Dakota brand. When I opened the package however, I was blown away. This vest is absolutely gorgeous. The coloring of the chevron pattern is absolute perfection and it feels so soft and looks very fluffy. This runs true to size as well. I'm 5'3, 34B, size 4 and typically take a small in tops and the small in this fit perfectly. It was just roomy enough that I could lightly layer but not so roomy that I looked like I was swimming in it. One of my favorite features is the two handpockets that this has as it adds a nice touch and makes it that much more luxe. i'm so pleased with this vest. I told my Mom so she could snap one up too and she did. Highly, highly recommend as this is a steal at this price point.

Very cute jacket but does run small
This jacket is adorable on but be forewarned, it does run small. I'm 5'3", 34B and typically take a small in jackets and tops and the small didn't fit me at all in this. Very tight in the arms and somewhat tight in the bust. I tried the medium and though it fit fine in the body, it was still a little slim in the arms. Someone with thinner arms might not have a problem with that (my arms aren't huge but they're not tiny either) but it doesn't work for me. Quality is great though and I love how unique it is. I've found the sizing on BB Dakota jackets to run smaller so that could be part of the problem. Just keep in mind that you might want to order a size up.
