Nice high shine "faux" leather look
I bought these because I really wanted a high shine glossy black, leather look without paying a grand for real leather. And I already love Siwy jeans so I gave these a try. They definitely fit the bill for a glossy look. The fabrication is a bit odd to me, as while there is stretch, the pants themselves are kind of heavy and tight, but in a much more constrictive way than say, denim leggings. I do like the length (am petite), overall fit, and glossy look, so am willing to get used to the material. (Bummer that it's dry clean only.) I can't wait to wear it with silky blouses and blazers this fall.

Basic wardrobe staple
It's just a black tank top, but the material is stretchy and fitted without being suffocating. Length is long enough for various types of outfits. I like my basic tank tops to be either very lightweight and sheer, or stretchy and fitted, depending on how I want to layer. This one fits the bill for being fitted.

Great simple bracelet
I love House of Harlow jewelry, and this is no exception. I am petite, and have very small wrists, so I'm always on the lookout for bangle and bracelets that won't be overbearing. This is simple, but unique enough to be casual or more dressy. I bought 2 for layering, and I love it. I love how there is a little bit of a thickness to the bracelet, to give it some dimension. Most simple gold bracelets are flat and thin, and just too big for me. The only reason I took 1 star off is it is still slightly big for my wrist, and will still have to be careful that it doesn't slip off.

Good basic tank
I like Enza costa basics, especially these tanks. They are sheer and thin, so great for layering. Quite expensive, so that's why I knocked off 1 star.

Not great
I thought this was going to be a great black work pant but it fits way too skinny. It's not bootcut either. It reminds me of pants from Charlotte russe or forever 21 bc the material isn't that great either. It just didn't fit my legs nor style. Maybe someone 5'5" and above could pull it off. If you hem it, the flare will lose its shape and then the pant itself will look odd. Wasn't for me.

Perfect summer denim jacket
I bought this jacket on impulse because the color was a perfect spring/summery blue. Also based on the reviews it seemed like it would fit my frame. I'm petite, 5'1", and usually a size 0 or xs. This is my first time trying J brand ready to wear and I felt the jacket in a XS was perfect. I didn't find the sleeves too tight. I would wear it with tees and tanks for the spring, so I think the fit is perfect. The sleeves are long for me, but most things are. Easy tailoring fix.

Unique chevron statement necklace
I bought this necklace because I had gotten the Lanston maxi dress elsewhere, and when I saw the pendant on Shopbop, I had to have it. (Styling does make a difference!) Anyway, I thought it was pretty true to size compared to how the model was styled. It was just a teeny bit heavier than I expected, as being in NYC I walk everywhere, and the pendant sometimes banged against me. But it wasn't so annoying that I wanted to return it. The quality looks pretty good, and I love the fact that the pendant is a bit watercolorish, and not just plain gold. Very pretty and unique necklace, perfect for enhancing a simple outfit! So far I'm just wearing it with black tops and black dresses, but I definitely can take this into fall/winter with any type of top, sweater, or under blazers. Great buy!

Nice sweater
I really do like this sweater, though the picture does not show exactly how big the sleeves are. You most definitely have to wear a tank underneath, b/c when you put up your arms your whole side will show. And also the color was a bit darker than I expected. So I took a star off for those reasons. However in terms of fit, quality, and style, it's a winner. The color works great with black skinnies, and also black leather pants (or really anything with that coated sheen that's huge this fall). The hem in front is shorter than the back, which creates a nice silhouette. Fabric is nice and soft...I dislike heavy itchy sweaters, so this works really well. I actually also plan to wear it with a long-sleeve black shirt underneath, to create some proportion with the sleeves.

Great airy blouse
I really love this blouse. It's got a great sheer effect paired with the nude/pink color, and a really interesting back overlay. I knocked off 1 star b/c I really wish it was real silk, and not just polyester. But the style was what I wanted, so I'm ok with it. I love pairing nude blouses with black skinny pants, or black leather pants.

perfect black ankle booties
I have been searching for suede ankle booties all summer in preparation for fall. I landed on these, and compared prices and decided to buy them from Shopbop, since I wanted it in black and size 6. I have other Sam edelman sandals, and they are size 5.5. I think the size 6 fits perfectly with socks, b/c you do need some breathing room. The suede is very luxurious. The ankle part feels a little tight at first, but I think I got used to it after awhile. I have other suede boots from stuart weitzman, and those were suuper expensive. These are definitely worth the price! I can't wait to wear with dresses, maxi skirts, and jeans soon!
