Hello all -- here are some recent acquisitions I'm on the fence about. Some purchased during Shopbop's Black Friday event (buy more save more kind of promo up to 25% off), and prior to that from Nordstrom.

Pictures 1/2 -- TopShop ankle boots. Angie twin! I like them a lot, not sure how many opportunities I will have to wear them though. The slim ankle fit and boxy toe are a fun change. Plenty of room in them for my high volume feet (surprisingly).
Pic 3 -- Rag & Bone cropped jeans. Would need to size down to achieve same fit as model. I'm just sort of "meh" about them. Haven't asked for a price adjustment, not sure if I will keep them. Inseam is not 26" as stated, it is 27" I would need to shorten them.
Pic 4 -- Opening Ceremony Grunge Platform booties. Stiff, hard to get on, not a great fit = going back. I keep striking out with this brand.
Pics 5/6 -- Sam Edelman fringe tote bag. Uncertain. I thought the color would match the Acnes better. Bag might be too large. But -- nice leather, good price, fun, and does it need to match perfectly?
Pics 7 - 11 -- R13 drop crotch cropped black jeans. Shown with different footwear. In order to counter the two leg shortening factors (cropped 22" inseam and dropped crotch), I feel a tonal effect is required with a dark top. Note intentionally baggy backside in picture 9.
Pics 12/13 -- Comparison pair of 5 Units (Danish brand) jeans from 2014 via Urban Outfitters that I've never worn. They are still making this cut (the Jolie). Same drop crotch but longer inseam and different wash. Don't care much for the pockets. Since these are paid for should I just try wearing these? I do think the R13 have a better execution of this concept but then again I also like the length of the 5 Units.

Please vote yay or nay on each piece if you care to give that much time! Your opinions are highly valued.
