Hunter, how did I live without you?
These are AWESOME! I am a true size 7 and the size 7 fits me perfectly. I am glad I did not size down to a 6 because they would have most definitely been too small. I do have a tiny little bit of room left but that's more than perfect because I plan on buying those super cute Hunter socks as well... Very stylish for a rain boot, got loads of compliments on them, most people don't even notice I am wearing wellies (got them in classic black). Slim fitting and not at all butchy looking, very classy! Love!

Rocker Chic Holy Grail!
What can I say about the Brit boots that haven't been said a hundred times? The deserve all the hype they have been getting. Bought them in brown and I would sleep in them if I could! They look fantastic with a pair of skinny jeans and an oversized white shirt. No accessorizing needed, these boots have it all. I probably could / should take off one star because they are not as comfy as you'd imagined but their killer look makes up for it entirely. Also, not the best quality considering price either but when you own as many pairs of shoes as I do, it's not really a factor. If you are looking for a boot to wear every single day for the next three years, these are probably not for you. Will probably fall to pieces long before - already loosing chunks of leather and had to have my heels replaced. Again, you really have to buy them for their look and their look alone. If you're okay with that, then do not waist another minute and snatch them up!

Size down!
I love Genetic, their cuts are always super flattering and there is a nice stretch to all their garments that makes them so comfy. These shorts are cute and quite classic. I would definitely recommend to size down as these have A LOT of stretch and run quite big. I bought my usual size 25 and wish I had bought a 24. Since I bought these on sale and size 24 is now sold out, I will keep them and hope that they will shrink after a few quality hours in the dryer! Don't forget to size down!

Love at First Sight!
I knew I had to have these cuties the moment I laid my eyes on them! They look adorable in person and I just LOVE that whole South American / Mysterious Cities of Gold feel to them - they look like something I could have bought in a peruvian market in Cuzco! The quality is pretty good considering that these are not from an upscale shoe maker and the detailing is just awesome. I have only walked around the house in them so I don't know if they'll hurt my feet or not but so far so good. They will look great with just about anything from an old pair of boyfriend jeans to short shorts and mini or maxi skirts. That whole bohemian / ethnic vibe is really what I live for. This is a great buy, very happy with my purchase.

Awesome! Motif 56 delivers once again!
I am a huge fan of Motif 56. Their leather cuffs are right up my alley in terms of style and they do it better than anyone else out there. Got this in the dark natural shade and it is absolutely perfect! The leather is nice and smooth (no need to "break it in" like some other cuffs) and it fits perfectly on a tiny wrist like mine. You have two sets of snaps so it can be adjusted to a larger size if your wrists aren't that small. I will wear this one all summer long and might also get it in black for when I feel a little more punk rock! Great buy, love it!

So Feminine and Effortlessly Stylish!
I bought this dress on the day it came out. It was one of those items I just had to have and I was not disappointed. The cookie-dough colour is super flattering, the material is thin and soft yet not see-through and the dress falls nicely. The highlight is of course the back of the dress which is not only effortlessly sexy but also super convenient: you can adjust the drawstring so the top part of the dress is a little roomier or more fitted whichever you like best. Wear it with a flat sandal or a nice platform espadrille and voila, pure summer awesomeness! May not be suitable for work, though! I am 5'6, 110lbs got it in XS and it looks just like the picture. Love it.

A Staple of the Boho Wardrobe
Oh the Allegra Cuff is back! Bought this last spring in brown, I am glad Motif 56 is bringing it back in their signature "natural" colour. This is a staple of mine (and I own dozens of leather cuffs). The quality is awesome and unlike many of their other bracelets, it is flattering on a small wrist. The leather age beautifully and being made of thin braided strips of leather, it gets very soft after a few wear. A good item to add to your "wardrobe" if you are into the boho vibe thing.

Warm, Fun, Laid-back, Stylish, LOVE!
I love this! One of the best Shopbop purchase I have made in a while! It is very cute and comfy and I didn't have the pulling-under-the-arms problem that many people seem to have. I am 5'6 110lbs, bought the XS and it looks the way it does on the model. Actually, it looks even better in person! At 50% off, this is such a steal... Buy it!

Great Boho Vibe
I still give this item 5 stars because it is beautifully made and the colour is wonderfully rich but it is HUGE. I adore Motif 56, the Boho vibe of their leather goods is right up my alley and I have yet to order an item I didn't love. But if you have very small wrists like I do, be aware that you will end up with a 3 inch flap of extra leather which doesn't look that great... Bought it on sale, so I will keep it but that's a little bit disappointing.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Love this!
This is really cute and dress up a jeans/t-shirt combo perfectly. The colour is a rich teal and the cotton is really soft and comfy. You can wear it as a regular cardigan as well by buttoning up both the vest and the cardi so you get two great looks for the price of one! Since it's quite the preppy staple I would add some combat boots and a leather cuff to give it a bit of an edge. You can wear this year round - it's the perfect weekend staple, something I will reach for on a regular basis for the months to come.
