Nice alternative to leather shorts
I have been looking for a pair of black leather shorts all summer and fall, but real leather shorts were way out of my budget. I really like the sheen to these, and they are made of cotton and not some other cheap synthetic material. My other J brand jeans are a size 25, but I sized down to a 24 for these. They fit my hips really well, and the length is perfect for my 5'2" height. I had to wiggle them up b/c since they are highrise, the waist is a lot smaller than what you would expect with regular shorts that button at your hips. I am not used to highrise pants/shorts, so it felt kind of odd and almost uncomfortable. But the style is perfect for the types of looks I want.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Really cute top
I had been coveting this top for a really long time, and when it finally went on sale I got to snag it in my size xs. It definitely works well for me b/c I'm petite, and the crop style goes great with long maxi skirts, or even with a long tank underneath, as you can play with the lengths a bit. It is a high maintenance item, b/c you'll have to dry clean it and be careful of the type of the jewelry you wear, since it is knit. I do wish it fit just a tad snugger, but I suppose most crop tops are a little bit looser at the bottom to give it more of a "swingy" feel. This is like my 4th knit/crochet top this summer, I can't get enough of them!

Super cute bikini
I love this bikini style and bottom, it's so much more unique than all my other ones (which are either solid colors or typical prints). I love the crochet detailing. Paired with the beige/nude color, it makes for a sexy but flirty look. I love how the back laces up and for the bottom, the sides also lace up. I am a petite and xs in most brands, and the xs in both top and bottom fit perfectly for me. This will probably be a swimwear brand that I will try in the future.

Chic blouse
I LOVE Equipment blouses, they are tailored so well. This is a great blouse b/c it is sheer, so the style is great. Silk feels nice against the skin, and the collar and shoulders are actually made of some soft suede-like material. It is a nice addition and chic contrast to the sheerness. Wearing a black tank underneath does take away from the effect that the model portrays, but since showing a black bra was in style last fall, I'm sure you can still wear it that way if you would like, as long as it is tasteful. I paired with white shorts so far for summer wear...definitely am excited to take this into fall with other neutral colors and leopard scarves!

Great basic black belt
I love Linea Pelle belts, their leather is high quality, and what I love most is it's soft and moveable. You can wrap them around your waist or help. I'm a xs, and there are enough holes for me.

Flattering shorts
I love Siwy denim, and I went with my gut and ordered a size smaller than I normally would. I'm typically a 25 in J Brand, CoH, and Siwy but after reading other reviews I went with a 24. It fits sooo perfectly. To me, the perfect pair of shorts fits snugly at the hip, but isn't so tight that you have to squeeze your thighs into it. These are perfect, b/c the leg opening is not too big and not too small. The rise and inseam are short, but sexy for the summer. If you are looking for more of a boyfriend fit, I'd either size up for a looser fit, or find a different style that has a longer inseam.

Cute summer maxi dress
I have this dress, though I didn't buy it from Shopbop. Nevertheless, it's a cute enough maxi dress for the summer. I got it in xs and it was a bit looser than I expected. I'm petite, so it's long on me, but I belted it and wore platform sandals, so that helped. I think a black belt or beige belt around the waist really makes a difference, and helps with the loose silhouette. The material is soft, so it's breathable for summer.

Great simple necklace
I agree with the other reviewers, this is a great simple necklace. The pendant is light, clean, and easy to pair with various outfits. I used to buy a lot of cheap necklaces but the pendants were heavy, rusted easily, and just overall not well made. I liked the packaging too, I received it in a little silver box, the necklace was in a little bag, and the pendant was wrapped in tissue paper. I love Elizabeth and James clothes, and their jewelry is no exception.

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.

Cute party dress
I typically stay away from sequins, but this dress is really cute. The nude cut-outs give it visual interest, and I'm glad it's not all covered in sequins. I plan to wear this in the summer with nude platform sandals for parties, and can take it into winter with black tights too. I can also tone it down with a black or white blazer, there are so many options. I'm petite, at 5'2", and am usually a size xs in alice + olivia. I got the size 0 and it is perfect. The length is good, as it is a tad above mid-thigh, so not too short, not too long either.
