So soft, so comfortable!
I love everything about these jeans. I typically size up for skinny jeans and did so with this pair. I like form fitting, but on the looser side. These jeans are incredibly soft and so comfortable. I wore them for a 16 hour travel day and never once felt binding, pinching or discomfort. The fabric has lots of give, but maintains shape and the fabric does not feel thin and cheap. For a 'patchy distressed' looking garment, these are of shockingly excellent quality; a very well made pair of jeans with an edgy rocker feel. I hope Siwy comes up with more washes and finishes for the Ladonna style jeans. P.S.. I'm not so sure about the 'crop' jeans part. I'm 5'10" tall and they easily go to my ankles. I wear rolled with booties.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Did a little dance when these arrived
Oh Mr. Jacobs, you made my day! I have a serious boot fetish and went out on a limb a bit from my usual comfort zone to grab these edgy black buckled babies. I'm so very glad I did. I am 52 years old, figured these could easily wind up looking like a bad retake of my decade of fashion horrors from the 80's. Not so! These are divine; of very very good quality so much so that I think I will sleep with them tonight. Yeah, that good. Purchased size 40 which in this case fits like a US 9.5 in my experience.

An good example of excellent tailoring
This Theory skirt is truly fantastic for its fit. At first, I somehow managed to put this on backwards because the seams and slits were not laying exactly where I expected them to be. There are two slits in this skirt at the sides; front and opposite back. Well the backwards skirt didn't turn out too well fit wise (eyeroll duh!) so I peeked in at the label and adjusted appropriately and tah-dah..like magic.. perfection! The curved seams at the back sides of the skirt make the fit, follow your shape. I am 5'10 148lbs athletic rectangular build and chose size 8. Theory tends to fit smallish on me. I vary between size 6 and size 8 depending on label. The size 8 flows in a perfect A line shape without any restriction. The waistline sits high. The length is not quite as long as mid calf on me; surprising since I am a tall girl and thought it might run just below knee. Overall impression: Excellent quality garment. Timeless piece.

Great style, sketchy quality
Another Free People purchase where I love LOVE the style and yet despair the quality. I had to steam the crap out of this blouse to rid it of wrinkles which promptly came back with very little wear . The material is definitely on the cheap. Awful actually. The tie bow and seams all have very fine sheddings. The area around the button holes is crinkly and does not lay completely flat. I purchased in the nude colour which is an interesting greyed beige which sounds horrid yet somehow manages to be flattering against my neutral complexion. The sleeves are nice and long for my 5'10 148 lb. frame. I purchased in size small and it is an easy fit; roomy like many FP designs. You get what you pay for on this one. If the quality were better, I would have easily purchased in black as well. Nice style and not a complete loss, but I'm fussy, picky, detail oriented and this just doesn't quite meet my standards.

Loose fitting, sizing generous
This is a really pretty and feminine blouse, but it runs quite generous in the sizing. Looking at the model photo, I should have actually predetermined this. I typically range from size 6-8 in all clothing and elected here to purchase in size Medium. Sometimes a size small can run too short through torso and sleeves for my tall frame. I am 5'10' and 148lbs with a long rectangular shape. In this case, I could easily have moved into a size Small with room to spare on this particular blouse. The medium floats around me like a very roomy wide swing top. Fortunately, the look is not unattractive, just more casual, so decided to stick to the medium and forego exchanging. If you are looking for more shape and fit to your blouse, I would recommend sizing down. The tie bow and fluttery sleeves make it!

Sized up to perfect fit
Based on other reviews, I decided to size up on these jeans to a 30 over my regular 29 which felt kinda risky given my last purchase of a size 30 resulted in hideous pounchy crotch and diaper bum. I am 5'10" and 148lbs; small boned but have a long athletic and rectangular frame. I have never purchased AMO jeans prior. What an excellent and pleasant surprise! These jeans are gorgeous; fit me so comfortably, no weird tight spots, no pulling, no pouching..just freaking perfect like a glove. I imagine they will work in to a little looser style, but stunned at how well they hug my proportions. Instant LOVE. I will definitely purchase this label again in the future.

Runs large, denim is too heavy, smelly
Thought these would look so cute this fall. I purchased based on sizing guideline which seemed to indicated US size 6-8 would be a size 30. These are absolutely HUGE on me (5'10, 148 lbs, straight up and down athletic figure), could wear a diaper if that were my thing. Sadly, not. From my perspective, these are a big US 8 or even a US 10. The denim while somewhat soft is certainly sturdy.. far too heavy and retro clunky for my tastes. Plus, the denim smells bad. I took the jeans out of their bag and promptly made the yucky smell grimace. I rarely write bad reviews, generally have a pretty good sense of my tastes and size, but these were a disappointment and not what I expected for a premium denim product. They are going back.

Feminine, good fit, good value
The lines of this dress are very flattering; cut close enough not to look like a granny dress, but not tight in any area either. I'm 5'10" and 145 lbs with rectangular shape, purchased size 2 (medium). The dress fits me in length similar to the model ,but doesn't quite reach my ankles; so perfect for wearing boots. The waist has a generous couple of inches, but the lightweight material falls very straight on my frame. The hip area has a roomy 4 to 5 inches on me as well, but again the cut does not add bulk or unwanted visual 'weight' to the hips. Nice touch: the skirt is fully lined. I plan to wear this with a little vintage vest I have in navy velvet which breaks up the floral print and adds some interest. This is a great transition piece from summer to fall. In winter, I would wear under a slouchy sweater and maybe some thigh high socks for additional warmth. Ultimately, this is a good piece for me to ride a bit of a boho look without committing a lot of cash in the process

Stunning and Gorgeous but far TOO heavy!
I fell in love with these dramatic stamped metal earrings, but sadly had to return. They are just too monstrously heavy. They would be impossible for me to wear without some major earlobe damage. I think a lighter/thinner metal alloy would be more appropriate given the large design. Madly disappointed here because I thoroughly love the look and quality. I am hopeful Shopbop will post earring weights in their listing descriptions in the future.

These work for tall athletic girls too!
I read so many rave reviews for these overalls and like others I wanted to take a bit of a fashion risk and step into this trend without spending a huge amount of cash. I am over 50 years old a bit of an odd duck artsy fartsy and was quite worried these might run far too cute and kitschy for someone in my age group. Not so. I was also concerned these might look ridiculous on a 5'10" Germanic frame; athletic and rectangular. Also not so. Based on other reviews, I decided to run one size up from my normal fitted denim size 29. I didn't need to. It's all good though and the 30 has a more relaxed boyfriend jeans kinda vibe, but the denim sits well and shapes nicely along the body' doesn't look unkempt slouchy. Highly recommended and I can only echo others' enthusiasm. Great fit, great price. and great find! p.s. Pant length comes to just above my ankle bones. Looks fab without rolling.
