Soooo soft!
I'm wearing this sweater as I type, which should be an indication of how much I love it! The cashmere is very light and very soft. It is somewhat sheer, though, so I have found that a camisole or light t-shirt is needed underneath. Overall, this is a gorgeous sweater. I feel both comfy and stylish when I wear it - something that I find very difficult to pull off as the weather gets colder. I look forward to wearing this all through fall and winter!

Gorgeous, but...
This my first experience with this brand, so I did a bit of research. Lots of other websites said to order a half size up, so that's what I did. When the shoes arrived, I was very impressed. They were beautifully packaged, well crafted, and lovely to behold. The suede is soft and the tweed part is more golden than white. Unfortunately, they are also higher than advertised (I measured them to be 4.5" as opposed to 4"), and terribly narrow around the toes. If they hadn't pinched my toes so much, I would have kept them. Even though the heel is 4.5", I did not feel like I was falling out or would lose my balance. I wore them around the house for about an hour before I finally cried uncle and put them back in the box. I am very sad that I won't be able to keep these, but because the shoes are so well made, I will keep my eye out for other shoes from this brand.

At Last! A fantastic sweater
I loved this sweater the moment I found it on Shopbop. I hesitated over the price, so it took me two weeks to decide to purchase it. I am so very glad that I did! The colors are beautiful (I ordered the blue), and the contrast between the navy panel and the charcoal panel is more noticeable in person. I have wide shoulders, so I ordered the small, despite usually wearing an extra small in most brands. This worked out well as the sleeves of the sweater are slightly narrow. I think I would have felt constrained in an extra small. The body of the sweater has a relaxed fit, but it is not so slouchy that I swim in it. Overall, this is a gorgeous sweater with enough heft to keep me warm in my chilly office, but with enough summery character that I don't feel bulky. In short, exactly what I was looking for!
