So Pretty, but Too Revealing On Top
Zimmermann is one of my favorite lines as everything from their dresses to bikinis are incredibly pretty, feminine, and almost always fit beautifully. I loved this dress, but the bustier top fit more like a bikini top attached to a dress and as such, was simply too revealing. And the price point is too high to make this only a resort vacation piece. The floral pattern is so on trend and I truly adored this piece, but I couldn't imagine myself wearing it comfortably without worrying that my breasts would be overexposed if not spilling out with a mere reach for something with my arms. If you're down with this look, I recommend sizing down. I ordered a 3 (large) and it was really loose everywhere, except the chest (5'10, 142 lbs, 36DD). I've long noticed that the sizing is inconsistent in this line (I own 1s, 2s, and 3s) so sizing down is just a suggestion.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Such a Great Lingerie Staple
I bought this bandeau in nude and in black as they are perfect to wear over a bra to add a bit more coverage. I'm a 36DD and wouldn't likely wear this without a bra because there is absolutely no support. I ordered a large in the black, but it was sold out in the nude so I went with a medium; there is so little difference between the two sizes. Cosabella is pricey, but the fabrication and fit fairly match the price point.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

AAAAAA-MAZING!
At 5'10, I love that there's a fitted jean with an inseam long enough to not only accommodate my height, but also let me wear four inch heels and even then, the hem is sweeping the floor. This style gives you the "legs for miles" look. It's so slimming, too! The fabrication is definitely stretch -- very similar to the Hudson denim fabrication with which I'm obsessed! -- so I ordered a 27 (my size in Hudson even though I'm usually a 28 in J Brand, Joe's, and Paige); a 26 would have also fit just fine. If you're tall and love to wear heels, buy these.

What Happened to the Original 811?
These were my go-to white jeans until J Brand exchanged the usual rise with the high-rise version (a long swath of white denim from inseam to high-waist, with a zipper that only accounts for about 1/2 of that length, is not attractive and even borders on vulgar because of the part of the body on which it puts the emphasis). I was so excited when I saw that they had brought back their original rise. But lo and behold, these are not the same 811s. In addition to having an overall awkward fit, the leg is snug until just under the calf and from there it's loose all the way to the ankle. Not only did J Brand raise their price point on the 811, they also changed the fit. If you're looking for a fabulous white jean go for the Hudsons (see review).

Great White Tee
I am always on the lookout for cool white tees and this one is a great addition. I love that I can wear a regular bra with it and the straps are concealed. This is my first purchase from this line and so far, I'm pleased with the quality of the fabrication and the tailoring. I'm 5'10 and DD, and the medium fit just right, hitting me right at the top of my pelvic line.

Cool Factor
I normally wouldn't have paid the price for this cotton blouse, but with the Shopbop promo I ordered it. And I love it! The sides are slit a bit from the hem up, but then the seams close and you've got these long ties which can be left long or tied into sweet bows or even wrapped around. I'm thinking I'll take it to the tailor and get the side seams slit upward even further so that this is more of an open sided top and the ties can "close" them however I so choose. The only reason it's not a 5-Star piece is because the cotton is very lightweight and wrinkles extremely easily. For the price, I'd expect a sturdier quality cotton or a multiple textile fabrication. Even so, it's a cool blouse that I'll wear with high-waisted jeans, shorts, midi skirts, and a flouncy mini skirt.

The Ultimate White Jean
I bought this exact jean last Spring and I wore them a ton so I'm purchasing a second pair. I'm a 28 in J Brand and Joe's, but in Hudson I'm a 27, but could get into a 26 no problem as this brand has the most magical denim fabrication of all time. These are super leg hugging, all the way to the ankle. LOVE these! And with a fit to end all fits.

A Fabulous Staple
I had seen this jacket several times, but had passed it over because of the material -- I tend to avoid anything that looks wrinkled before it is even worn -- and the price point. However, I ended up trying it on and had to have it. The slightly wrinkled look is not noticeable when on and the large (I'm 5'10, 142lbs) hit right below my waist. This jacket fits so perfectly and because it's lightweight it's ideal for Spring. So far, I've paired it with both high-waisted jeans and skinny jeans. It's a great piece because it works with so many looks. Definitely worth the investment.

The Ideal OTS Blouse
I purchased this piece before it was available on the Shopbop site, but am reviewing it because if you're considering investing in this piece, please size down. I acquired my first Caroline Constas OTS blouse last summer and bought a large. As a result, the elastic band wasn't sufficiently snug and I spent the entire day, each time I wore it, constantly pulling it back into place. This time, I ordered a medium and it did the trick (I'm a 36DD, but the blouse is not tight across the chest). I purchased the black version of this blouse and have paired it with a knit midi-length black and white skirt, but will also be wearing it with jeans and shorts. This line features beautifully constructed pieces with quality fabrication. It's an expensive line, but the quality and multiple pairing options make it worth the price.

You'll Feel Royal!
I received this just last week and have already worn it twice. I have received so many compliments and truly, it is an incredibly gorgeous accessory. I had a couple of women ask me if I was "wearing it backward," but I informed them that this was how it was designed to be worn. Make sure it's facing upward correctly or it will feel like the gold leaves are digging into your scalp. I had to cant it slightly upward so that it fit like a laurel crown and thus, avoided the ends of the piece from resting on my temples. Once you figure out how to place it, it's comfortable (and I'm saying this as someone who is very sensitive to headbands and such, and often get headaches if something is too snug). I'll be wearing this regularly. It's beautiful and such a cool twist on the typical headpiece.
