Nice structured bag
While this is a saddle bag, it's not too retro 70s or Boho, it's got a dose of modern. I almost returned this because it arrived crushed on one side. However, I was able to re-shape the bag and now I'm glad I kept it. It is small, but you will find your essentials will fit. The color is a beautiful pale gray (picture is accurate). Beware, due to the light color, dirt will show -- a leather protector spray is a good idea.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Tight armholes
I got the size 36 in the khaki color. First, the color is more green so be expecting that. It's a nice green but not exactly khaki which I think of as more neutral not as green. I really like this jacket and the fit was perfect in the shoulders, torso length and sleeves. But -- it was too tight in the armholes and uncomfortable. I tried the jacket on with long sleeves, short sleeves, and camisoles and the armholes still would dig into my under arms. I may come back and re-order this in the blue color, in a size 38. For reference, I wear a 2 or 4 in jackets, height approx. 5'4" / 113 lb.

Color not as light as expected
The picture here shows a top that reads mostly light. As in, white with light blue blotches. The one I received had an overall darker look. As I am finding with many Madewell items, this piece runs bigger than other brands on Shopbop. I am normally an S, sometimes an M in tee brands sold by Shopbop. In this item I ordered the S, but an XS would have looked better.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Nice but see through
I like this piece and have worn it several times. It needs a camisole underneath, not a big deal for fall or spring but may not work in high summer. I really like the way the neckline is cut. It's not too low but is open enough to suit people like me who can't wear high necklines.

Hello static
Nice color and style. The caramel brown matches a pair of boots of mine so perfectly. But, the 100% acrylic fabric created static within seconds of putting it on. Not keeping it.

Nice basic layering top. The fitted style is refreshing after so much oversized fashion. Don't hesitate to buy on final sale.

Happy Bag But Small
This bag makes me feel happy. But, it is quite small. I cannot fit my wallet, keys, lip gloss and phone. Either the wallet or phone has to go.

Perfect flare for petites
I love these, the rise is just right and the view from all angles is gorgeous. They are probably a touch short on me though. I am 5'3-1/2" exactly (no fudging to 5'4" this time). I find they could be one half inch longer to be perfect for me, and that the flare could start a bit lower on the leg as it flares above my knee. Still, this is a big improvement over regular flares with a 34-36" inseam. I am wearing them with 1 inch heels for a perfect floor skimming length, or with a 1.5" heel for a bit shorter. I was expecting them to get longer as they stretched out but happily these retain their shape. Thank you Shopbop for carrying petite flares AND for hiring a petite model. With my standard 1.5" heel, they look pretty much like on the model, except I am curvier than she is.

Comfortable boot
There are many pointy toe boots that are just too narrow for someone with a wider foot and higher instep. These fit my feet so well. Also the heel is not big and holds my foot in well. The leather is beautiful and soft. I got these in the light camel color a few months ago, they do scuff easily so beware. I've applied German shoe protective spray so hopefully that will keep more marks from forming. Will not be an issue with the black color.

Great choice for petites
I am just under 5'4" and these fit a few inches above my ankles but not as short as on the model. They are actually a great cropped length for the fall or warm winter days which are common in California. I normally wear a 27 or 26 in jeans, but found the 25 fit best. The 26 was good too but fit like a boyfriend jean, the 25 fits like a loose skinny.
