lemon purse your closet is thirsty for — trust me, I asked.
Promising review: "I needed a small crossbody bag to hold my phone and my wallet, and this is the perfect size! It will fit probably a portable battery and maybe one or two other small things as well, but it isn't big or bulky, like I feared it might be. It's just the right size for what I need! The colors are very bright and it's in excellent condition. I highly recommend this purse! It's adorable and feels very durable. I'm tempted to get the watermelon one just because!" — Erin

crop top to style up any pair of jeans, because summer is here and we must gear up our wardrobe for such a chic season!!

button-up tank you can dress up for the office (hello, cardigan!) and down for casual weekends. It's simple but still charming — the two pillars of staple clothing.
Promising review: "My favorite thing about this top is that it doesn't cling to your body. The straps are also adjustable, so you can make the neckline come up higher if you don't want to show cleavage. I ordered my usual size (medium), but I could have sized down in this. I would say for a loose fit, stick true to size, and size down for a form-fitting fit." — Jasmine L.
Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 19 colors/prints)

amazon.com / amazon.com
Promising review: "Love these pants. Comfortable and washed well. I am 5'6, 120 lbs. and I ordered the medium. I wanted the fit to be a little baggy and it is. I would usually wear a small or size 4; based on the reviews I ordered one size up." — nocutename

Promising review: "I'm pleasantly surprised by how thick the material is. I ordered white and was prepared for it to be too sheer to be worn without a camisole inside, but the material is actually thick and opaque! I love the button down design of the blouse — so vintage and feminine. I'm 5'3, 125 lbs. and the small was a little too big, but still wearable." — Faith Ang
Price: $6.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 32 styles/colors)
lace-strap tank — and sorry to your other shirts in advance, because this is bound to give 'em some serious competition.
Promising review: "I’m actually super excited about this top!! Quality is great, especially considering the price. I’m a 34B, 5’7, and about 145 lbs.

A soft, stretchy, and simple
maxi dress you can dress up or down for basically any occasion.

It looked a little small out of the package, but fit perfect without being too tight. I am 5'5, 135 lbs., size 6, and 36C and I ordered a small and it fit great. I like that the length is just enough so if I wear short heels it doesn't drag at all." — Amazon Customer

jumpsuit in possibly the coolest print ever that's perfect for your sunny wardrobe. It'll look just as cute paired with sandals as it will with wedges, so just another reason to wear it all the dang time.
amazon.com / amazon.com
Promising review: "This jumper is so cute. I'm 5'5 and 165 lbs. I bought a medium and it fits well. There is a bit of extra space in the crotch area but it doesn't mess up the outfit — and besides it was inexpensive. Also, you can still wear a low cut bra and it wont show in the front peep holes. I'm so excited and I cant wait to wear this. Perfect for vacation or a bbq. The material is light but not thin or see through." — Shopping for fun

Ankle strap pumps featuring a darling flower embroidery so you can solve your, what do I wear to this wedding problem ~once and floral~.
Promising review: "Wore these to a wedding and received one compliment after another on the style and beauty of the shoes. I have wide feet and do not like to wear really high-heeled shoes any more. The wide heel gave me stability and some height. The material of the shoe stretched to my wide feet. I wore them all night, no pain. This was an amazing find especially given the price. I highly recommend!!!" — Barb
Price: $18.88+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 22 colors and styles)

amazon.com / amazon.com
Promising review: "I LOVE THIS! Oh my gosh. I have never felt more comfortable or confident in a bikini in my life. It covers what I want covered and accentuates what needs to be accentuated. I'm 5'3 and roughly 145 lbs. and the large fit perfectly. The leg holes are not tight at all (which is where I expected to have trouble because my hips don't lie). The top is a little big and far apart but I simply twisted it to make them closer and now I have zero complaints." — Sarah
Price: $23.99 (available in sizes S-4XL and 21 prints)
wrap-style tunic worthy of being worn to everything. It's comfortable, cute, and deserves a place in your "I only wear these 10 shirts even though I have 50" part of the closet.
Promising review: "The shirt is perfect! It's lightweight but not flimsy. It's soft to the touch. It's great for wearing to work without being too dressy. Works really well with dress slacks; can't wait to try it with skirts this summer!" — Keisha Page

Its adjustable straps, stretchy back, and tie front make for a more 'customizable fit', which is great when ordering online. Definitely have some leeway in either direction.
