Great black distressed skinnies
I had been coveting the Alana crop in offbeat but was waiting for a sale, and unfortunately my size sold out before that. I had initially overlooked these because they are not so obviously distressed in the photo and I wanted some distressing. These are perfect--no gaping holes but enough damage to add interest. I wanted undone hems too so these fit the bill. I wanted a high rise also but a mid rise is very versatile and a good compromise, since the Alana had gaping holes. These are super soft and stretchy, not a normal denim material but they seem strong enough. I ordered a 25 and 26 and kept the 25 which is my usual size.

Super Flare is super!
I ordered these on a whim during the sale, just to see how they looked. I was excited to find a flare in petite sizing and hoped I would not have to shorten them. I ordered a 25, my usual size, and when I opened the package I swore I would never get them on--they looked like little girls' jeans. They are quite soft and stretchy however and fit comfortably but like a glove. So flattering! And they are the perfect floor skimming length for me with about a 3 inch heel (I'm 5'3"). The waist is super high and the front pockets give these a very retro look--there is no way they would be mistaken for the flares of 10-15 years ago. Good job, Shopbop.

Beautiful but not for me
I ordered a 4, my usual dress size. I wear a 25 or 2 in bottoms but need a little more room for my 32 DDD chest and shoulders. The 4 fit but I felt like it flattened my chest out a bit. There is no darting which is completely understandable as it would ruin the look of the lace. It was slightly loose in the waist and I generally need a more defined waist for flattery otherwise I look like a barrel all the way down. So I guess it just wasn't right for my body type. I will say that the dress was pleasantly short, a nice mini length, even on me at 5'3". It might be too short for someone a lot taller. As others have said the dress is very well made and comfortable, it is double lined in the body and very soft.

Comfortable and soft
I don't have any jeans in this bleached color and I wasn't sure if the color would look right in a skinny style or overly distressed version. These are perfect. They are more fitted than a boyfriend but looser than a skinny. They have no holes but the distressed ankles make them look a little timeworn. They are more fitted in the legs on me than on the model but I have athletic thighs--they are not tight however. I have a feeling I will be putting them on a lot since they are so comfortable feeling right out of the gate. Not too long on my 5'3" body either. I took my usual size 25.

Nice jeans
I ordered this pair in size 25 which is my usual size and they fit great. Like other R&B jeans I've tried in a skinny style they are a little tight in the legs compared to other brands, but they are still comfortable. I like the length too at 5'3", and since I was trying to find a frayed hem pair of jeans that aren't too long they are almost perfect. Distressing is just right and in a place where I won't blow through a knee after a few wearings. The only thing I don't really like is that the stitching on the top of the back pockets and yoke seam is a little bright...it looks a little blingy and I'm not a blingy pocket kind of girl. I'm probably just being overly picky and nobody can see that stitching if I wear anything but a cropped shirt. I do plan to keep them since I found them on sale and the price was right too.

Worth a try, but...
I ordered a medium in this romper after seeing a black version on somebody. I am normally either a small or xs but neither of those was available. I was hoping the fit might be forgiving enough to wear big but it was not flattering for me. That said, it was really cute on the person I saw and I am now trying an xs from the Free People site, in another color. Unfortunately I will pay full price for that one but I like the color more and that will hopefully fit well so I guess I am willing to pay.

Nice sandals
I have been looking for a minimal flat sandal for some time but found they often make my feet look big. These do not. I think it is because the ankle strap goes down rather than wrapping the ankle completely. The top strap is a little shorter too. They are comfortable and made in Italy, and very versatile. I took my regular sandal size 8. There are three different leather textures on the sandal, which isn't entirely evident from the picture.

Not bad but preferred another pair
I ordered this sandal and the Joie Topanga sandal, and I preferred the other one. I thought those would be more versatile, but it was a close contest. Joie shoes are good quality and true to size. I now own three pairs.

Romper is too short!
I am 5'3" and ordered a small, and found it too short for my body. It gave me a wedgie. Also, I was hoping to be able to wear this with a strapless bra but it is cut too low. If it worked in the fit I'm sure it would have been cute...for someone petite and long legged.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Definitely darker in person
I agree that this robe is darker in person, more of a mid-gray. Slate describes it accurately. It is very soft but I wish it had lace on the sleeves too, that would make it nicer. It's about what I expected, and I did not have any issues with looking wide like the other reviewer. I probably would not have bought it without a sale, and it's worth what I paid, but probably not full price.i. If you're looking for a lightweight robe that's not made of a silky material this is a good choice.
