Good Casual Piece
I like the print, and the fit. Has good length if you sport a long torso, as I do. I'm on the fence about the fabric blend and how it feels, but it launders really well. I will keep it on rotation for some time I am sure.

Fashionable, Not Functional
Great looking bag, but as a backpack it was awkward and limited as to how much you could adjust the straps. Beautiful leather, and design, but compartments were not as ample as I had hoped. I was looking for a stylish yet functional piece, and this didn't quite tick all the boxes for me.

A winner, but not quite a winter boot.
Dolce Vita boots are one of my favorites. They fit my wide foot comfortably, and the styling has just the right amount of flair without being over the top. This boot was to be a boot I could wear through out the winter. The shearling lining does not go into the toe box and defeats the purpose of being lined as a functional aspect to the boot. I also found the sole a bit rigid for my liking. The tread on the bottom is great for traction, and some of the stylish details make this a stylish boot with the right balance of chunkiness and clean lines. I cant justify the price, considering these will not keep my feet warm in the winter. If the lining had been throughout the entire boot, I doubt if these would have ever came out of rotation for the winter. I will be sending these back. Hopefully someone in a warmer climate can enjoy these.

Great Black Bootie with Edge.
I almost selected "larger than expected' on this review, as they are border line. They have a longer toe box, so if you have a narrow foot you may consider sizing down. I have a wide foot, with a narrow ankle, so I just added an insole and they felt perfect. They are a matt nubuck in the front and a smooth leather in the back of boot, both zippers function, so if you have a high instep you are in luck. Super comfortable heal, so these I will walk good distances without much strife. I'm always happy with Dolce Vita shoes!!

Great Alternative to Skinnies.
I have a super active lifestyle and jeans are my staple garment. My closet is dominated with skinnies. These felt like I was putting on skinnies as they are so comfortable and move well with the body. I have athletic thighs and although they felt snug on my thighs, they were not constrictive, nor did they do the migration towards the floor. They hug your hips and thighs and then relax out just below the knee. Fabric is very comfortable and soft, lending to more of a trouser feel. I will have to have them hemmed, but the cut will not lose the silhouette. They are so comfortable I considered sizing down, but reconsidered, as after wearing them around the house for a couple hours they had not relaxed out at all.

Great Go To Shorts
These shorts have a great drape on your hips, giving them a casual relaxed vibe, while still feeling pulled together. You can dress them up or down, the slits at the sides, give them that extra edge I like. The wash is a true black with no fading after several washes. Only down side is that they stretch out quite fast and laundering after two wears required. Would suggest sizing down in the Sharkbite cut.

Mile Long Legs! Shorter inseams beware!
Another beautiful pair from Mother! However!! If you have shorter, muscular legs like I do, this may be a challenging pair to pull off. I am 5'7" 130lbs. My inseam is 31". These fit my upper legs like a skinny then expanded midcalf as a flare. Because of my short inseam I would have to hem, even to wear with heals, losing a considerable amount of the flare. The wash is really rich, the fabric is super comfortable and the waist and hips fit very well, but the rest looked awkward on my muscular legs, especially when I experimented with a heal and folded over the excess length. I definitely did not look like the model:) I order my usual size of 28, but may try the 29, and see if a more relaxed size will give a better silhouette.

Great Silhouette
COH never disappoints me! An ease to the fabric without feeling like a jegging. The wash is rich and does not fade with washing. This style balances out my muscular thighs, however, I do not have a long inseam( 31"), so had to hem and did lose some of the nice lines with the narrower leg. So, if you have shorter legs and are not inclined to want to wear heals, this may not be your best choice.

Not Quite for my Athletic Build
Love Mother denim, but somehow these did not meet my expectations from this label. The fit was not at all flattering or comfortable on my athletic physique. The rise was somewhat awkward for me, and it seemed to feel binding on my thighs instead of hugging them as my other pairs of Mother do. The wash was great, but I felt the material was not to par with what my other pairs of Mothers have provided.

Relaxed Alternative to Highwaisted Short
These are a fun pair of cut offs! Button hole closure gives a loose drape to waist, and although the sides have small slits up the seam, they give good coverage without a high waist, which is not flattering on my athletic build. I could have gone down a size, but happy with the relaxed feel of the size I ordered. The wash is a true black and after multiple washes there are no signs of fading. However, they do relax/stretch after one wear. Happy with purchase, always pleased with Shopbop's service.
