Everyone needs a Becky Jacket!
I'm a huge fan of Rebecca Minkoff and think that everyone needs a Becky Jacket! I am so surprised how flattering it looks on so many different body types. It's just a great all around jacket. I would say that it runs a little small. I went with the size Small. I'm 5', 115lbs, with musclar arms and shoulders, and it is still a little snug across my back and in my upper arms. But the medium was too baggy. Either way, I love the look with a tshirt and skinny jeans. It's a great item to dress up whatever outfit you have on. The navy color is a bright colbalt and sooo beautiful in person. I know I will get great wear out of this!

My foot slid forward
These booties are so beautiful, but I had to return them. Because of the shape, my foot slid too far forward scrunching my toes. I love the leather color and the heel shape, but the narrow toe just doesn't work for me.

A great basic
This shirt is a great basic. It will definitely be a nice wardrobe staple. Originally I ordered an XS as often I'm XS in many brands. This was MUCH too small in the arms and shoulders, so I ordered the small and it fits almost perfectly. It still feels slightly snug across the back, I'm assuming over time, as denim does, it will give a little. The denim is quite lightweight and feels almost more like a chambray. I was a little worried about color transfer from this shirt as it is so dark, but I haven't had a problem with that yet.

Perfection in the form of denim.
I love AG jeans. The fit is spot on, especially for someone that is curvy. I'm short (5', 115lbs) and almost always wear a 27 in jeans. The 27 fit perfectly. I'd say these fit very similar to Siwy jeans. The denim is very soft and oh, so comfortable! They do stretch out a little as the day goes on. I could probably get away with wearing them twice before I'd need to wash them to get the shape back. The color is a perfectly washed out, casual look. I know these will become a wardrobe staple. Also, the length is WAY longer on me than the model, as expected. I just let the bunch at the bottom.

Not for me
I love the way these jeans look on the model, but they are just not for me. I am petite. 5' 115lbs and wear a 27 in almost every brand of jeans. In Rag and Bone though, I need a 28. I also wasn't thrilled with the height of the rise in the front. I generally like a jean that is a little higher in back and lower in front. These seemed to be the same all around - which made them almost high rise on me. The cut of the leg is nice and slim though and you can tell they'd keep their shape. But..overall, not for me, so I returned them.

The best boots
Rag and Bone make the most comfortable booties ever. Even with the heel height these don't hurt my feet. I did go up a half size up in these and my other Rag and Bone booties. The suede is beautiful. The Hunter green is such a wonderful color for fall. Another great quality? These are nice and quiet booties. So often anything with a wool heel sounds so loud whenever you walk across a hard surface - not these - soft and quiet. LOVE them!

A little too snug for me
The fabric in this skirt is soft and quite pretty - but the fit of this skirt just didn't work on me. I am a 27 in denim (36" hip) and bought a medium. It fit fine - though I would say, I definitely could not have worn a small, and often in knit wear I can - so I think this runs a bit small. What I didn't like was how the skirt was soo snug that it sort of pulled my knees together. It just wasn't comfortable or all that flattering on someone like me who has a booty. I'm also short so maybe it was just too long? Again, it's a pretty skirt - just not for me!

Great slinky pants
I love these pants - but I have to say, I bought them to wear to a costume party where I'm dressing up in hippie garb. Either way, I think you could probably work them in to your regular wardrobe with the right pieces. The fabric is sort of a ribbed slinky knit. They aren't that sheer - though it is nice that there are built in nude colored shorts. They are quite long for someone short like me, so I'll be hemming them. These are very comfortable, and the fold over waistband is very flattering. I normally wear a size 27 (36" hip) in denim and a 4 in pants, I bought a small in these and they fit just perfectly.

A little too much fabric for me
This dress is really cute and fits true to size - but the skirt portion is quite large. It was just too much fabric around my hips. Also, if you live alone, don't buy this dress - there is NO way you will be able to zip this up without help. Because of the thickness of the fabric, the zipper is quite tight and you definitely need someone to hold the dress together while pulling up the zipper at the same time. Otherwise, the cut around the neckline is adorable. I'm quite short, so probably on someone taller this would be very cute! Needless to say, I returned this.

Gorgeous work bag
This tote is a fantastic work tote. It is large enough for books, laptop, extra pair of shoes and a lunch! Even though the straps are thin, they seem really strong and sturdy which is definitely a plus. The leather is amazing - it smelled just like a saddle when I opened it. Such a chic item for the fall and winter.
