So cozy and soft
I tried this in Bloomingdales. Then shopbop came up with the bigevent code, so I purchased from shopbop instead. I always think VINCE as overpriced as everything are made in China. VINCE fitting is not 100% perfect as well, I would say 3 1/2 stars to 4 stars. I was disappointed paying their $345 cardigan and didn't fit nicely, but couldn't return it. Anyway, I still think this 100% cashmere as overpriced (Equipment cashmere is still softer). But, I really like how it looks and feels on my body. It actually looks better on me than the model. I'm 5'3 or 163cm only. I can wear this as off shoulder (sexy yet cute) or wear it normal like the model. True to size. I tried M to have more of an off shoulder look, but didn't look that good. I recommend this. Wearable all year round except summer of course. Got it in GREY, cute, wear it with flare jeans like Kate Moss :))

Fitting is off
I bought this in 26 and 27. I usually wear 27 for J Brand skinnies, 10 inches ankle style. I have kinda big thighs, so the waist will always be a bit loose after wearing. Anyway, I'm only 5'3, due to the zipper style, it looks weird on me, because it's too long plus you can't alter them. The last year leather style fits good. But, the 2012 style has weird odd fitting. I ordered two pairs from shopbop and another pair from Revolve clothing. All 3 fit weird on me and I own like 8 pairs of J Brands. The waist could be so tight and it just look weird. The legs area also fit weird. I don't know why. I much prefered Helmut Lang leather leggings and ALC leather pants.

You can go down one size
I wear 27 in J Brand 10 inch skinnies, James jeans and SIWY. I got this in 26 and 27, I opted for 26, because it stretches after 30 mins and molded to the body. This is more of a leggings jeans, stretchy thin fabric, not real denim. I like the fitting, it hugs all the ugly stuff in your body. If you have rear, maybe I would suggest staying true to size. I have small rear but big thighs and 163cm only. The length is perfect. Expensive, but should gotten it from net-a-porter on sale now $112. I got it during after Thxgiving discount on shopbop, so I don't feel that bad with 20% off.

Complicated top
The top is cute and sexy. But once you unpack/untie the halter neck from the hanger, it becomes so complicated. I cannot figure out the front overlap and wear it as what the style is. I've tried for 30 mins and gave up, RETURNED IT! I have a top with criss cross overlap in the front like this from Blue Life, and it did the same thing. I just can never figure out the overlap style. Sigh.....am I too dumb? It looks easy, but once you receive it in hand, it wasted my time just to put it on.

cute
It's actually pretty cute. I tried both XS and S. I'm 34A, 5'3 height, size 26/27 jeans. I can fit both, but I do find it to be true to size. Boxy cut is the style. So, I opted for S, the overall cut just looks nicer. So get your true size.

Not sure
It's made in Romania, French brand. I'm a 26/27, in J Brand, Siwy, AG, Current Elliott. Got it in size 38, because it's European cut means smaller. The design is really nice, I like the piping stitching on the back and along the outer inseam. I have small rear, still, due to the piping, it looks OFF and AWFUL to wear. Looks like I'm trying too hard to fit in this pants (hips area only). I do have a bit chunky thighs, but they fit fine on the legs area. Unless you are pin straight model type or a size 24/25. I can't imagine someone who is curvy like Sofia Vergara type wearing this. You have to go up 2 sizes if you got nice rear or Brasilian. I prefered ALC leather pants and Helmut Lang. I don't like Rag n Bone leather pants either.

Hot!!!!
The most exp purchase I've ever made for a clothing! Aghhh, I first bought Helmut Lang leather leggings, but found them to be long for someone who is 5'3/163cm like me. I tried the hem folded, but looks scrunchy and not flattering enough. So, I ended up returned both size 2 and 4. I've been patiently waiting for the next new leather pants from any brands. Then, found this ALC one. At first, I wasn't sure due to the waist band style and greenish brownish color, not black. I took the chance and I'm very happy with my purchase. It runs true to size to snug fitted. If my legs were skinnier, I can fit in this nicely nor too tight. But, this leather stretches. In the beginning very fitted. If you have nice rear, I suggest go up one size. I have small bum, but big on thighs/legs area. Bought size 4. J Brand skinnies in 27, Siwy 27, Current Elliott 26. Made in USA, thumbs up. H Lang and Vince leather are made in China with the similar price. Of course, I'd go for ALC!!!!

nice dress
I bought it in beige color from Revolve. Shopbop doesn't sell it. To be honest, this dress looks better on me than the shopbop model. I'm serious, I'm only 5'3, 34 A bust and got it in size 2 my normal James Perse size. Perfect, it's still fitted but not too skin tight, yikes. I personally think that greyish blue color is ugly. Get the black one instead and pair it with some turquoise accessories, voila. Also don't forget your mini fringe bag. I actually got compliments from boys while wearing it. You just need to know how to coordinate it with the right jewelry and bag plus wedges sandals.

French espadriles
I want a nicer summer shoes, rather than the typical Toms. Found this and excited, it's made in France and not commercial, yet in the US. I'm a US 7.5 Bought these in size 38, my usual Euro size. Glad, I didn't follow Shopbop sizing rec. It definitely run 1/2 small. I'm sure these shoes need to break in first to get that comfort. It's narrow in the front and I have normal medium width. A bit painful to wear still, just like my leopard Coach flats that overtime will break it and stretch out. I'm still thinking of keeping them or not. I think size 39 would be too big.

ok
It's cute, reminds me of Isabel Marant sweater that I couldn't get my hands on. But, IM is cuter and cozier. This sweater is true to size, not baggy like A Wang cuts. But, I do feel $275 is steep for something like this Made in China. Well, it's Rag&Bone. I'm going to return it and just wait til it goes on sale. I'm 34 A got in S.
