I finally caved and went shopping at Brandy Melville. My reason for withholding? I didn't grow up around the store, and I sure wasn't about to rely on the "one size fits most" claim and risk ordering online. While I had filled a hefty online shopping cart multiple times in college, I never pulled the trigger. I have to say, I am impressed with their simple, comfy basics like this black knit and the gray tee I have layered underneath. Very affordable. 

Also, these jeans are the result of my ripping rampage I went on last weekend. If you're sick of your denim, I highly suggest taking scissors to your jeans. Once you cut a hole, fray the denim by sharpening the fresh edges with a sharp blade such as a razor. Final step: throw them in the dryer and voila!
