A little darker than expected
I ordered the sea foam in size 26, my usual size. This is my first pair of Koral denim. The color was slightly darker in real life, which usually does not happen with items I order from Shopbop. I was a little disappointed with that but not too much, especially for the price. They fit like J Brand, Citizens, Paige or Rich & Skinny, I would say most like R & S since they are so stretchy. They have a subtle silvery coating that when you look closely almost looks like splatter paint. This gives them a little something extra, but not so much that they can't be a good pair of everyday jeans for a stay-at-home mom like me. Overall, very happy with my final sale purchase.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Runs large but cute when sized down
I am normally a 26 and tried the Sheffield wash first, it was too big. This one then came available in a 25 and I actually prefer the moss wash so I gave it a try and it fits perfectly--still slightly loose. They are kind of pricey for what they are and a little shorter in the inner thigh area than I'm used to wearing but I think I can get used to it since they are still flattering. Mine were more distressed than shown in the photo but it's all in the pocket area so nothing shows that shouldn't. I wore them once on the one nice day we've had so far this year and they were very comfortable and still flattering as they wrinkled up.

Small arm holes and feels cheap
I realize this is a cheap jacket but I thought I could get something comparable at Forever 21 for a much lower price. I ordered a 4 (I'm usually a 4 or 6 in jackets) thinking it would probably work since it doesn't close in the front and I usually need a larger size to accommodate my bust, not my shoulders. I couldn't even raise my arms to shoulder level in this. A size up might have been better but I was not pleased with the quality and it wasn't very flattering from the side since it flared away from my chest, so I will not reorder.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Huge looking dress
I ordered both ruby and black in this dress, in size xs. I am usually a small but I read reviews on the Free People site and thought it might run big. I liked the red color but thought I'd try both since black might be more flattering. Neither worked for me since there is just too much volume in this dress. I'm short and on the busty side so it might work better for a taller flatter-chested body. I tried belting it but all the fabric bulged out below the belt. It felt a little crunchy too--not very soft.

Sizes are US sizes, not UK
I read the other review and ordered a 4 and an 8. Since I am usually a 4/6 in US sizes, and this was unlined and leather will stretch I thought a US 4 would fit me. I received a US 4/UK 8 and a US 8/UK 12. The smaller one did fit. The mink color is lovely and is the kind of brown that will go with black also. I did not realize, however (I should have since it is stated in the description) that there are fabric panels on the sleeve undersides, something I do not want. My search for the perfect leather jacket continues...

Runs big!
I have a 26" waist and 35" hips, and I ordered a 26, my usual size. I could almost pull them off without unbuttoning them. The waist on these measured 32". I know they are supposed to be boyfriend style but these were a little too long in the crotch area when they fell down. I have lost weight recently and my closet is full of oversized items right now so I wanted these more fitted. I have ordered the moss color in a 25 to see if those work better.

Good basic flip flop
I ordered this in the tangerine in 8, my usual sandal size. It fits perfectly. In some flip flops my heel hangs off the inside edge but not with these. Tangerine is definitely more the peach color shown in the photo than what it sounds like. I did get it on sale but still think around $30 would have been a more appropriate price, but I guess since it's leather it has to cost a bit more. I would not have paid full price for these.

Runs larger than the v-neck version
I have several of the v-neck very light jersey tees in medium and I love the way they fit. I thought this would fit the same but it doesn't, this one is about the same length in front but longer in back, and it maybe flares out a little at the bottom. I will keep it because I love the mint color and it was on sale, but the v-neck is a little more flattering on my 5'3" body. I usually wear a small but find Splendid tees to fit better across my bust and shoulders in medium (I'm 34d/dd).

Runs big
I needed a nice lightweight summer sweater that wasn't black, and this fit the bill. I had been eyeing the Joie Ambra sweater but it was only available in large and much more expensive than this. This was only available in x-small and I'm usually a small but after looking at the photo and reading prior reviews I thought an x-small would fit more like I wanted it to anyway and I was correct. The fabric is very pretty with a little more luster in real life. Good gamble to purchase on the final sale.

Cute but not really adjustable
These are cute but made my feet look a little long. The ankle strap is not really adjustable since only one of the straps has an adjustment and the other one warps underneath it when it is tightened. If you have small to medium ankles you should be fine, but if they are very slim or large these may not work. I ordered the teal which is a bright, pretty color. I thought about red but thought it might look wrong with my kelly green handbag. These should be cute for casual outfits in the summer.
