Perfect summer tank dress
What can I say other than I can see myself wearing this all around town by day. It a very high quality uber soft cotton. It's very light weight and breezy, which is perfect for summer temperatures. I intend to order another one, because it really will be a simple staple. It can also function into work attire, because of the length. Just top it off with a b.f. blazer and some pumps.

Super flattering thigh and rear jeans
I'm 5'8 and a size 2-4 so I purchased these in a size 26. These jeans are very flattering to your bottom line. Also the dye and destressing are very tastefully done. I have major concerns about these however. The denim quality is very poor. Thay are tissue paper thin and the destressing has not been treated so there will be further ripping and unraveling. I have not decided whether or not I will keep them. The fact that they are so flattering to my shape makes them hard to give up, because it is so hard to find a pair of jeans that are perfect for your body type. However, at over $200 I expect the jeans to be quality, which they are not. I fear they will not old up with everday wear and tear and on the gentle cycle in the washing machine, which makes me hesitant to rip the tags off and rock them around town. I also am concerned about wearing them in the winter, because they are so thin, that I know I will freeze.

So So pants
I couldn't wait for these pants to arrive, but when I recieved them I was disappointed. The knit fabric used is a bit rough and feels slightly abrasive against bare skin. The color of the tan is different in person. It is more of a warmer hue of khaki. When you put the pants on the fabric will add a bit of weight to your hips, buns, and thighs, which is the reason I returned these. The knit fabric made these areas on my body appear about a size larger than they are. They are however, extremely flattering to a small waist line. All in all I did not find these pants worth the price tag.

Love this red!
The venom color is such a beautiful red, which is not showcased very well in the photos. This dress is very sexy in an effortless way. The Drone dress fits exactly as pictured on the model. One must consider that the model is standing with her hip cocked and her legs split apart, which might mislead shoppers that are looking for a skin tight dress. Since the fabric is semi sheer you must order true to size or the dress will be exposing, The fabric just slightly skims the entire body. On nights out, when you are looking to amp up the sex appeal you can pair this with a belt to show off your waist line a bit more. This dress is a must have!

Sexy 70's
These bell bottoms are very flattering! They are light weight and very comfortable and can be worn for a variety of different functions. I'm 5'8 and purchased a 26, which fit perfect everywhere, but were too long even with a 5 inch heel. The hem will need to be altered about an inch and if you are shorter then more so. I did return these pants, because I found them in another color elsewhere. I'm just not a navy kind of gal. I highly reccomend these pants.

Unique!
I've always loved a wedge. These are absolutley adorable in person and very comfortable. With the blue quilted leather on the wedge combined with the peanut leather on the straps they really pop out nicely with the light blue denim colors of summer, but in a very unique way. I've had so many compliments on these. I've also paired this with a ton of summer dresses. My favorite combination is pairing these shoes with the Helmut Lang Drone Dress in Venom. These shoes fit true to size. If you are in between sizes I'd reccomend choosing the smaller half size you're debating between, which is always the case with this brand. I highly reccomend these wedges.

Great quality
I pruchased these in a 26, which fit perfectly just like all of my other Citizens. It's also a quality denim much like verything else Citizens makes. They are a very cute jean, but from the rearview they made my tush appear flat and kind of boxy. My bottom is neither flat nor ample, but I just didn't like the minimizing affect, so I returned them. If the Angie super flares creates this affect you might want to consider the DL1961's Melissa fit, which is also another qualty denim of a similar look and fit that shows off a small to medium perky bottom nicely!

Boho blah
I couldn't wait to get this dress. In the photo it looks perfectly bohemian. When I ripped this dress out of it's packaging I was disappointed. The fabric was of a low grade qualty silk and the color scheme is a bit different in person than what the photo shows online. I returned the dress, because of this. I did try it on however and it fits true to size and exactly as you see in the photo.

Nothing special
As the title states this top is nothing special. The cotton fabric is of the lowest quality akin to what one would find in target. Furthermore the embroidery work is shotty. It also runs about a full size larger than what I usually wear. This top is really only worth about $25. This top was disappointing and I returned it. I have since purchased another white summer baby doll top that is just darling.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Best Jean
This is my first time purchasing DL1961, but I am a huge fan now! This brand is definitely all about fit and quality. The denim is of a very high quality and the wash is a tradtional indigo. The overall construction of these jeans is superb. Perfectly flattering fit, which based off of my knowledge I think it would be safe to say these will flatter any figure. My one reccomendation is for sizing. These jeans run a little larger then many of the other denim brands found on shopbop. I'm 5'8 and my waist measures 25.5 inches. I generally wear a size 26 in almost every denim brand. I saw the model wearing a size 25 and she had a slight muffin top, so I sized up, to a 27. They were far too large and I returned them for a smaller size.I can't wait for the UPS guy to deliver these! Also, if you happen to be on the shorter side you will probably need the hem taken up about an inch or so.
