gorgeous details
I am a curvy plus-sized girl, size 14 with 36F bust. I love this brand because I can actually find things that fit me in their collection. This top is very over-sized (and it is described as such); it is quite slouchy on me even at my size; I ordered a M/L. The sleeves on the upper arm are even quite loose, and the sleeve length is a bit short. All of these things being said, I ordered it to layer under itchy winter sweaters; I wanted a thin, soft layer that wouldn't be constricting like a camisole or long-sleeved tee might be, and this is great for that use. Also, it has a beautiful detail in the frayed edges of the collar that will peek out of my sweaters. The collar is not a crew, but a wider modified scoop neck, which I think is universally flattering. Yes, it is pricey for an under-layer, but it is perfect. I think a more slender gal might look great in it as a regular top, but keep in mind that it is loose all over. Very well-made with care for details!

Perfect layer, works for curvy girls!
I know a camisole is not a big deal, but to me, this one is. I am a larger girl, size 14 with 36E bust. I ordered the black in Large. I am always looking for a layering camisole that a) doesn't make me too warm, b) isn't tight and constricting, and c) doesn't add a lot of bulk when worn under something. This cami is soft, comfy, not constricting, and just perfect. I am going to order the other colors and also the racerback version. They are pricey, but, to me, an effortless workhorse wardrobe staple like this that I will wear all the time through all seasons is worth every penny. A word of warning though, as the other reviewer stated, the material is very thin and fragile (that's why it is so awesomely without bulk) and there is danger of little holes and rips if you are not careful with it. Absolutely don't put this one in the dryer!

The boots I've been searching for!!!!
Been looking for a couple of years for the right black boot that would be both chic and comfortable. Didn't want western or military, just something with a nice clean line but not TOO dressy, and flat. I usually wear a size10/40, but decided to get 41's because of the slightly pointed toebox...I sure am glad I did. They slip a bit in the heel but that is easily fixed with some padding and/or socks. I don't think a 10 would have worked. They are a gorgeous soft matte leather and the unique cut looks so good with dresses and skirts-very flattering and different. These are the perfect boots-by far my best purchase in quite a while. And because Shopbop did the Family & Friends promo, I was able to afford them, though they were still a huge splurge for me. But they will be a wardrobe staple for a long time, so worth it. Thank you Chloe and Shopbop!

Sophisticated flat booties!
I needed a pair of ankle boots that were not heels but still were sophisticated enough to wear with a dress. I've been looking for more than a year now. These are it! They are super comfy and, despite being flat boots, have a clean enough line that they look minimalist and elegant with a dress and black tights. Also, a lot of the ankle boots seem to cut off my leg in a weird way. I am a heavy-ish girl but I have slender ankles and like to show them off-these booties are low profile and allow the thinner part of my leg to show, and so elongate the line of my leg. I need shoes I can walk in all day so I am constantly looking for shoes that are comfortable but still look modern and chic and flattering. These are pricey, but worth every penny. They are following the bootie trend but I believe they are a classic modern look that will not go out of style. Best purchase in a very long time!

GREAT staple layering piece!
I am a larger girl (size 12-14) with an hourglass figure. I am busty and often need a little extra something underneath dresses and tops, and hate having the extra material of a camisole or slip, because sometimes camisoles roll up and usually it's all just too warm. This cropped camisole is absolutely perfect! it isn't bulky, fits over my bra, and is a very pretty layer poking out underneath low-cut tops. I thought it was pricey, but now realize that it's worth every penny because I wear it quite often with many different things. I will be buying similar items from this brand.
