Hmmm...
Ok, so I had high hopes for this knit jacket and while there is no denying the quality of the garment the fit is just all wrong in my opinion. I did not find it small in sizing at all, in fact I was surprised at how roomy and accommodating it was, if anything I found it big for the size. I purchased the size small and I am 8 1/2 months pregnant and I could zip it up quite comfortably. Pre-pregnancy my measurements were 32-24-32 and I would have swam in the size small. But the sizing aside its the fit in the arms and shoulders that is just wrong. If you have a close look in the photos on the model, especially in shot of her from behind you can see how the shoulders bubble out yet there is no shoulder pads in the jacket. It gives you a really weird shape to your shoulders ( not good) and the sleeves are quite wide. Which is strange to me as it is meant to be a fitted jacket. Definitely sending this back despite purchasing it with the 20% off friends and family promotion

Beautiful Quality
Again at 70% off this is a fantastic buy. The quality is amazing and the fit perfect. It's probably a little shorter than I expected but again I have a particularly long torso so it will work better with high waisted pants or shorts. The only thing I would point out is that the colour "dove"may not suit evey skin tone and may "wash"some people out. It is kind of a beigey grey if that makes sense and looks exactly the same as on my computer. As one reviewer commented it could look a little "space age"but I think it's about how you style it... if you know what you are doing I think its a very versatile piece.

Cute and Edgy
At 70% off this is a great buy!!! Really unique, cute and edgy, it's a unexpectedly versatile piece. It is a little more cropped on me than the model ( I ordered my regular size XS ) I do have a longer than average torso and I think with wear it will "drop"a little. I wore this with the ALC leather top underneath (which is also currently 70% off) and it looks amazing. I love the quality and uniqueness of Jen Kao, she has an amazing intuition in her designs and manages to execute them to perfection. So if you like things that are not so mainstream yet everybody wants to know where you got that from, then a Jen Kao piece is for you.

Beautifully made
These shoes are so comfortable and are just divine. If your size is still available these are a steal at 70% off. I would say they are slightly smaller than I expected ( maybe 1/2 a size) but I think they will give and mold beautifully to your feet once worn in, so I wouldn't be too concerned, just to be aware. I was a little worried because I don't really buy or like "brown" shoes but these are really flattering and just work with any outfit. If you don't really wear heels but would like a little height these are perfect as they are so comfortable. I can't say enough good things about these shoes except just go for it!

Beautiful and unique
A cool take on the classic white top. It's A.Wang at his original best. It is not as sheer as I was expecting, the knit is quite thick but soft and gorgeous at the same time. The back is surprising, sexy and alluring but in a really classy way. You could wear this top to work with a blazer and go for dinner and drinks after work sans blazer and the transformation would definitely surprise...

Good but...
beware this dress is SHEER!! In the description it is described as semi-sheer but make no mistake, the fact that this dress is bright white and I have an olive based completion it is sheer on me. So the dilemma for me being trying to find something to wear underneath without losing the cut out details and overall appeal of the dress. Suggestions anyone??? I have loved this dress since I saw it on the runway, but like other pieces I have tried from this season's collection I just wish I could tweak it. Love the concept.. execution not quite right :(

Good for wide feet
I am on my feet a lot, so these shoes serve their purpose. But in saying that they are really designed for wide or "problem" feet. They are not as flattering for the feet as I thought they would be but at 50% off I decided to keep them, I would not have kept them at full price.

Cool and Edgy
Just like the zipporas I reviewed I do not understand how the model could be wearing a size 26, if her measurements are true. I have the same measurements as the model ( except for height :)) and I have these pants in a size 24 and they fit true to size. I am a size 24 in most designer jeans, Jbrand, c&e, 7's, citizen of humanity. So my advice would be to stick with your true size. They do have a stretch to them and look super cool just with a plain white tee. I love the chain detailing down the side a each leg, these pants look so much better in person.

Love Zipporas
Finally shopbop has stocked one of sass and bide's cooler/edgier pieces. The selection that shopbop sells is not a true taste of sass and bide which is a real shame especially this season's collection. Anyway this pair of zipporas (i love this cut of jean which is uniquely sass and bide, that is a skinny jean with the perfect length zip at the back of the ankle) are so comfortable and soft. They are super stretchy but do not lose shape throughout the day ( they still keep everything in and give you a flattering fit). I don't understand how the model could be wearing a size 26 as I have pretty much the same measurements as the model (except for height!) and I comfortably fit into a size 24 (as I do in most brands jbrand, c&e, 7's) without it being super tight ( I like a little room especially with a leopard print). Plus I am currently 4 months pregnant ( with my 4th child) and they still fit (although a little snugger but still comfortable. So do not size up if in doubt size down :)

A little deceptive :(
Ok so first the positives, the fit would be flattering for most body types, especially those with great legs but wish to minimize a thicker waist. But be warned you might not get the color combination as shown on the website photos. In my case I got the most hedious color combo of bright blue and orange taking most of the shorts.. Gross!!! Not worth reordering and taking pot luck on what colors I would receive. Definitely something you need to see in store first... Shopbop should warn of this discreptancy.
