Most Fantastic Boots on Planet Earth!
I purchased these boots a couple of years ago and am thrilled they have become an edgy "classic" from A. Wang, who offers subtle variations on the theme each year. Initially, I was not sure if the over-the-knee trend would continue, yet the quality and uber unique design of this boot made sense to gamble. The relatively flat heel (Oh, that HEEL detail!!!) makes these weirdly practical, even though that adjective connotes another kind of shoe entirely! Sexy, cool, work-to-museum ready... Great leather. Perfect boot.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

architecturally cool
These are very similar to a pair of Sigerson Morrison sandals I have from a couple of years ago, yet are like the mysterious, arty big sister of them... When they were reduced, it gave me perfect reason to have both! They have a cool silhouette and are of course well-made. The fixed ankle strap does not lay flat against the foot, yet I think it is a detail that is meant to contrast with the buckled strap. I wear an 8 in US lines and a 38.5 in European lines, so the 38.5 was right-on. These are not hard to walk in, yet my gait I can tell it a little less fluid, compared to narrower heels.

Snazzy mid-heeled shape
I am always on the lookout for a pair of black work heels for less dressy days, yet which are still interesting. These fit the bill. Also, I have a few skirts and dresses which fall somewhere south of mini and north of pencil. The heel height is great for these. I wish the lining was a darker color

Fine shape
These were still too large for my small face. It seems like other reviewers also have this dilemma
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Can't wait until it's warmer!
Stripes and contrast collars may be getting a little tired, yet this blouse manages to make both seem fresh. The colors are really subtle (I can't figure out if that is blue or grey) but somehow manage to be my favorite aspect of this blouse.

Lovely, but needs a slip!
Shopbop's reminder to review my recent purchases also reminded me that I need to purchase a slip! I bought an ALC dress last summer (light navy) that was see-thru and improvised with a beige minislip. This dress will need a black slip. ALC has great silk patterns, yet I wish they would line their dresses. The fit is great.

Great colors.
I love the warm, slightly off brown/ochre color of these. They looked great with wooly tights and a wool miniskirt. Soft suede.

Attractive
This jacket looked very nice on the model and, in person, the fabric was soft and looked as pictured. However, I am 5'5" and it was just too long and formless on me. It fit in the shoulders, so the size was right. There were so many great attributes of this jacket, I really wanted to keep it
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Great Pants!
I am actually wearing these right now with lighter-colored burgundy blouse (Raoul, if Shopbop hasn't sold out) and dark red shoes for kind of a monochromatic thing. The wool is very fine and has a nice sheen. Great tailoring - they are cut very slim without being form-fitting.

Cool professional wear
I was upset with myself for waiting too long to order this, as the size 2 was sold out in both colors. I ordered a 0 in the redwood and a 4 in the grey and the 0 fits great, not to mention that I like the redwood in person more than I did the cement. I am somewhat busty for my size and 2s in many contemporary lines typically fit better. The smaller size helped this look more tailored. I let the packing wrinkles steam a little near the shower. The arms are a little fitted, yet I would say are proportioned as expected.I like being dressed up without looking fussy and, with a black pencil skirt and oxblood t-strap pumps, this fits the bill perfectly...
