Great Photos & Well Researched
In my humble opinion, overall a 5/5: PRO: The number & quality of images is first-rate. PRO: The book has a personal touch since the author discusses personal fashion influences, from childhood to the present (including images of family, friends, and herself). PRO: The organization, selected images, & descriptions helped me define my style better than ever before. PRO: The author has researched the topic at a PhD level, from old Hollywood starlets (e.g., Jean Harlow) to modern day icons. PRO: Dorothy Dandridge is included in the book. I've often wondered why Dandridge does not receive the same fashion icon status as Audrey Hepburn. She deserves it. About time. CON: I do not share the author's love of fur. The author advocates for fur. This is in direct opposition to my own ideological views. I wish she loved faux-fur instead. CON: Angelina Jolie is included & I don't quite understand why. All other inclusions are right-on IMHO.

Gave tons of ideas; lots of pics & text
I love this book. There is tons of text. It will take me forever to get through it, which is GREAT in my humble opinion. The images offer tons of visual ideas. The book has already inspired new ways for me to wear my existing clothing and accessories. The authors themselves are the models in the images. As gorgeous as both women are, they are more "real woman" than the models one typically finds in fashion spreads. Thus, the images give the typical woman a better idea of what these trends will look like on. Bonus: I own two of the Yanrz scarves that one of the authors models in the book; hence, I could literally interpret the looks. Hahaha.... Highly recommend!!!

Few Photos; For Fashion Book Collectors
A nice price and some very good advice. However, most of what is contained in the book is likely old news to those drawn to such books. As an additional point, the book contains only a few actual photos (with the author modeling in these or no model at all). Instead, the majority of images are drawn - almost cartoon-like. Perhaps this will make the images in the book remain relevant longer; however, I prefer more realistic images. For me, a copy of "InStyle" or "Glamour" containing an article on closets is as useful or maybe even more so than this book. I am glad to have it though as it is a nice book to add to my collection of such books and it looks cool on the bookshelf with the other fashion books.

4 Stars Since It Is Brass & Loses Shine
Gorgeous!!! It can be adjusted to fit very small wrists too. For example, I can fit it onto my granddaughter's 2 year old wrist (not that she would actually be wearing it at this point). The ducks are very detailed. The only flaw is that it is brass and hence won't be shiny as pictured for too long. My copy is very dull and brassy now. But I am told that a bit of lemon could shine it up easily.

15.5" Circumference Narrow On Calf
A 15.5" circumference around the calf should fit me fine.However, alas, my leg looks like a sausage in these boots,which is disappointing because the boots are gorgeous!!!They almost look like leather & not rubber.If they fit,I'd rate then 5/5;but I have to mark down for being so small around the circumference.I was in denial about keeping them (I wanted to keep them sooo badly);however,I have to return these.Returns are a bummer for me as I do not get free returns from Canada.Four final notes: (1) I did some research & found out that Hunters are made for the wider calf woman, maybe if you are in doubt you can check those out instead; (2) my daughter is 5'4" & she tried on the boots, finding them to be uncomfortable because they hit the back of her knees (I am over 5'8" & they worked for my height); (3) the boots buckle at the front,but I guess this is the case with all rubber boots; & (4) I expected them to 'stink' of rubber,but they did not.In the last analysis,these are gorgeous.(o:

Considering Other Juliet&Co. Jewelry Now
I have been considering these particular pearl earrings for awhile; however, I was hesitant, thinking the earrings might be less appealing in person given their price tag of $20 U.S. The selling point for me was the previous review. I second it!!! "Wow, $20 for these gorgeous earrings? What a steal!" Also, since I am plus size (16 to 18 on top), and a little over 5'8", I was happy to know, thanks again to the previous reviewer, that these earrings would be "a bit larger than most pearl earrings." The size is perfect for me, and "as expected" (thanks to the previous reviewer). I have been eyeing other Juliet & Company pearl jewelry, such as the Triple Strand Pearl Necklace, and the sight of these earrings is pushing me to trust in Juliet & Company and BUY BUY BUY. I have not had these long so I am unsure regarding issues of "tear-&-wear," but this was love at first sight. At $20, I would suggest this is a great deal. I am not surprised that only 3 pairs are left in stock.

Unusual and hip
I was drawn to these because they are jumbo. I wear them around the house for keeping hair out of my eyes. They work well. It has been suggested to me that the same jumbo hair clips can be found cheaper in local stores in my city in Canada (including a Dollarama). But I am still glad to have my version from shopbop as they were only $15 anyway.

Slow Shipping
Love Quotes scarves are awesome. I bought the HOT PINK and ORANGE when on sale. I own 16, going back to 2009 or 2010. Seasonless: inside in winter and to keep cool in summer and spring. Great sales from ShopBop on these - sales cut down on international customs dues. I ordered the scarves on 30 March; they arrived by Canada Post today (8th April). I don't mind the slow shipping because Canada Post is much more reliable than UPS and DHL in my city. But I use to order from ShopBop and the parcel would reach me the next day or no more than 3 days in total (including the order day). Only one real issue: way too much packaging for the the two scarves. Just stuff them into an envelope please; they came in a box and there was way too much paper inside. The scarves won't break eh. Thank you ShopBop nonetheless. You are GREAT.

On sale for a reason
Very small make. Nothing special. Not much cover/material. I may just wear it as a night shirt over a tee.

Lives up to its name: PUFFy
I wish I had ordered the M, and not the L. I am very slim on the bottom - no rear end for example; however, this skirt makes me seem like I have a JLo bottom. This is great news for me. Lol. However, it might add to much bulk to those ladies lucky enough to have such a bottom or for more plus size women.
