A Great Summer White Sweater
Just like the Parker dress I reviewed, I tried this same style sweater on at a boutique before buying it here. I ordered a Large which was about 1.5" longer than the Medium. The sleeve length was the same on both sizes. I like sweaters to fit more loosely so I almost always buy the large. This sweater is loose knit, well-fitted, and looks amazing with white shorts and simple sandals. This sweater couldn't get any more "beach bonfire!" ALC is very pricey, but the quality can't be beat and I'm actually surprised that this is under $300. Get it before it's gone!

Amazing Fit!
I'm in love with all things sheer this season and between the color and the style of these pants, I decided I would at least order them to try. So glad I did -- I LOVE them! I ordered a Medium and they are loose around my waist (5'10, 140lbs, 27.5" waist), but I love pants that hang low on my hips so I'm fine with the looser fit. And they come with a tie if you want to cinch them in. The pants have multiple options including keeping a loose, wide leg, unzipping around the ankles, or tying them to turn them into a harem pant (my favorite look). These pants look like they'll easily wrinkle, but they came out of the packaging wrinkle-free and considering they move easily when you've got them on, I expect they'll hold their shape. Great pants!

Spendy & Short, but Still Summer Perfect
I've invested in a few Jeunesse blouses now and I've never been disappointed. The quality and fit are both great. And this blouse is definitely a keeper because a sheer blouse is clearly one of the "it" items for summer. However, I gave it four stars instead of five because the material isn't as soft as I'm accustomed to from this line and even though I ordered a large (I'm 5'10, 140 pounds, C cup), this cropped front/longer in back top, came up shorter in front than I expected. The model in the photo has it tucked and given the description of her height and weight, I have no idea how she tucked the size small she's supposedly wearing. I won't be tucking this top, but I'll love wearing it with the range of sheer pants I've been accumulating since early Spring.

Sooooooft!
I thought I was totally devoted to J Brand... until I tried on these jeggings by Genetic Denim. They are so soft -- so I can see the stretch-out potential that other shoppers have described in their reviews of GD -- but I wore them for the entire evening and they held their shape. No bagging at the knees or in the seat. These are so much less "hippie" looking in-person and even with the distinct pattern, these will work with a range of tops, and best of all, can be dressed up with heels and a sheer tee or dressed down with flats and a tank. These are the perfect item for weekend getaways and summer daytrips. I'm a true 28 and that's what I ordered -- and that's what fit -- with this pair.

The Best White Tee Ever!
I got this tee at a Splendid boutique over the weekend, wore it the next day, and loved it so much that I immediately ordered another one from Shopbop. Basics like the perfect white tee are usually the most challenging items to find so when you do find something this fabulous, stock up! I'll definitely order at least one more. The fit is excellent, the cotton is lightweight and exceptionally soft, and the white couldn't be whiter. This is that easy piece that you can wear solo or layered. Simply fabulous!

THE Ultimate Skinny Jean
As a huge fan of J Brand, I have this style in a couple of other colors already. But I saw the light aqua color and thought it was the perfect summer shade. These are true to size (I'm almost always a 28 -- every once in a while I size down to a 27 depending on style -- I'm 5'10, 144 lbs, with a 27.5" waist). This brand, and especially this style, does a great job of holding its shape so only size down if you want a vacuum seal around your waist and in the seat. Can't wait to wear these with a ton of different tops. It's taken me years to find the right brand of jeans that fit my body and these are it. Can't get enough of them. They wash well, wear even better, and are always on trend without being trendy. Adore!

Single Season Adorable
These are very cute shorts and the sequins reflect a wide range of colors so you'll have lots of top options. I bought these knowing they wouldn't last more than a single summer because sequin items don't seem to have lasting power. On, these are so cute, but I was surprised by the sequins which are "softly" sewn on (extra sequins are included), and because of that I now expect a few wearings at most. Plus, a visible one inch line appears in the sequins where the shorts crease when sitting. While they're not as well-made as I expected considering both the price-point and the brand I'll keep them; they'll be fun to wear. I'm a 28 in Joe's jeans, but it seems they use a different fit model for their shorts. I tried these on in-store before buying them on Shopbop so I knew to get a 30. I suggest trying on a pair of the brand's shorts before buying because the fit of the shorts is radically smaller than the line's jeans.

Yowser!!!
This is one of those dresses that fits as beautifully on you as it looks on the model. I've purchased a few dresses from this line and always end up having to tailor the dress two to three inches shorter, and there's no exception to that for this dress. I wear this style of dress with flats so tailoring is unavoidable even on a very tall frame. I ordered a medium (5'10, 142 lbs), and it fits perfectly. I love the flow and the "hang" of the material, and the crochet detail on the back adds an extra punch to an already very sexy dress. I hate going braless so I might have cups sewn in for support and coverage unless the cups would be visible. Regardless, I can't wait to wear this dress after trying it on and moving around in it. YF&B really understands the female body as the design has ruching and gathers in all the right places. I LOVE this dress!

Charming!
This top is so pretty that "charming" is the only way to describe it. I love the minimalistic floral pattern and the multiple colors that comprise that pattern make this a top that will pair well with a wide selection of different hued pants, skirts, and shorts. The quality of the silk and the piece itself is on par with Haute Hippie's typical high quality merchandise. My only complaint is that the top is shorter in-person than I anticipated. At 5'10, I'm used to tops running short, but HH usually isn't a problem. I ordered a large and the hem of the tank just barely skims the top of a pair of shorts. This won't be an issue for more petite girls, but if you're tall, beware that you'll be exposing tummy every time you raise your arms, reach, etc. Overall, it's a great summer piece that will get a lot of wear.

Incredibly Flattering
As a Southern CA native, I've purchased a ton of swimwear over the years and this suit is among my top three favorites. The suit looks better in-person than in the still photograph, in my opinion. I especially appreciate that the backside is fuller coverage than the typical bikini bottom. I ordered a size 6 (I'm 5'10, 140 lbs) because the size 8 was sold out, but the 6 turned out to be perfect. The print is unique and was a standout on a recent trip to Miami. I received several compliments and questions as to brand and where I had purchased it. Both pieces are incredibly flattering on and the top gives a pretty good lift between the underwire and the halter strap. I'm a C cup and the top definitely gave me good support without it feeling like a bra. I wore a sheer black and white stripe mesh cover-up purchased at another boutique and the look worked by the pool and on the beach and even for inside the hotel. Pricey, but this is a suit out of which you'll get a lot of wear!
