Very Pretty
This ring is as pretty and delicate as it appears. It is very thin, but not at all flimsy. After putting it on I can't feel it on my finger all day, and it doesn't impede my writing with pen and pencil or anything like that as some wider rings can do. It is very sweet, well made, and I'm happy with the purchase.

Soft Cloth Shopper
I've always liked Cynthia Vincent's "grocery bags"/shoppers and I love this kind of print, so I jumped when I saw this item. The colour is more washed out, kind of sepia tone more than black and gray and I thought it appeared. I would have preferred a sharper contrast to the print, but I still like it. One thing I'm not so happy about is that the material is cloth as opposed to leather. I was in such a rush to buy it that I didn't bother reading the description. I still like it and I'm still keeping it. But with a cloth bag, especially a shopper, it's going to show all the bulges and edges of whatever is in it, which wouldn't be the case as much if it were leather like most of Twelfth St.'s other shoppers I've bought. On the other hand I could probably get this dry cleaned fairly easily. I'm happy with it though, and I think it's definitely worth the price. Would have loved if it had been a thin gray suede though....

Cute Enough
I'm actually somewhat on the fence as to whether or not to return this item. Had I seen it in a store, I may still have gotten it on an impulse. It is cute, but not particularly special. The clasp is very tricky I find, and I really dislike that in a bracelet. I feel like I'm going to break a nail fiddling with it. For the price I wouldn't say it's a good value, but it's well priced I think. Were it $70 I think it would be worth the money and perhaps a bit more fairly priced, put it that way. But you're paying a certain amount for brand and marketing. Nothing too much to write home about on this one, but it's a cute little piece, if you don't mind a tricky clasp. I could believe that it was a variation in manufacturing and others might not be so difficult.

Off Colour
The colour is completely different than pictured. Very disappointing. I can't remember ever having an issue with colour not being the way it appeared online with shopbop. The stone that arrived was a somewhat light shade of purple, not at all like the more magenta tone pictured. I'm tempted to hope that it was some kind singular error and exchange the necklace for another-- maybe the next one would be as pictured. Another note is that the quality of the stone isn't superb, but for the price I think it's perfectly good. The colour is the only reason I'm returning it.

Perfect Little Top
I love this little top from Joie. It's very light for the hot humid summer weather and isn't so transparent that you need to wear something under it for modesty. Although I would definitely wear a bra even if you don't strictly need to if only because of the deep opening in the front. I don't think that the photos quite do justice to the depth of colours in the print, and the way they have the neck completely tied up isn't as flattering as leaving it slightly more loose. At least not to my mind. So far I've worn it with a light jacket/cardigan because it's very light on its own, and because of the halter style, even when the neck is left loosely open you can see a bit of skin between the straps and the collar/neckline of what you wear over top, which is just what I was hoping it would do. I have a curvacious figure, but I think this would be flattering and feminine on anyone. Versatility for dressing up or down is a little limited, but on the other hand it's very easy to style.

Cute and Practical
I got these in black last winter and I found them very practical. I was in Europe most of the winter and they had an incredible cold snap. For the most part they were warm enough for going around the city, and even skating. They're definitely not suitable for snowboarding/skiing though. The number one benefit is that you can easily take your fingers out for using your iphone. The only issue I had is that the loops for attaching the mitten flaps to the buttons on the back of the gloves weren't very good at their job. On one side the loop was too big even when it first arrived, so that the mitten part wouldn't stay fasted at all. The other side eventually loosened as well. This was annoying and consistent with the kind of sloppy design detailing I've found with Bop Basics, but in the end this didn't render them useless and I'd buy them again. Though I might try to find something similar this winter and pay more for better quality.

Very Pretty
I was dubious about the price tag on these earrings, and I'm not sure I'd say they're fully worth it. I do think that they're overpriced, but they're also very pretty and I'm not going to return them. There aren't a ton of outfits I can wear them with, but it's nice to have something a little different. They're very much as pictures. Perhaps a little smaller than I expected but I like that. They're much more subtle than you might think given the colour. The small green stones are just enough to set off the main orange stone which is a more subdued orange than what appears in the image, I think. I really like them, and have only the smallest twinges of buyer's remorse because of the price combined with the fact that I can't wear them very often. But I'm trying to find outfits where they work. And I would recommend them if those two drawbacks won't bother you too much.

Nice Light Easygoing
This is a lovely top for summer. Light and easygoing. Fairly casual but could also be dressed up. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love Joie... My only complaint. I have a curvy figure. I ordered a medium, which is what almost always works for me with Joie tops, but the spaces between the buttons open quite readily to reveal some skin, mostly around the bust area. However it's loose around the waste. A large would look over-sized though. I may just have to try and find the right bra to wear with it, but it's not enough that it bothers me anyhow. I'm happy with the purchase.

Nice But Slightly Smaller Than Expected
Only slightly smaller than expected based on general Joie sizing. I have to say, I love Joie blouses. I practically live in them. I have a curvy figure and like other Joie tops, this one suites it well. Looser where I want it to be and tapered where it should be. This is a fairly middle of the road top as far as formality. The cut and design lend it to seeming more casual. In fact I'd thought that it would be more causal, but the fabric has a bit of a sheen to it which makes it more versatile. With jeans and maybe a brightly coloured tank underneath it could be quite casual, but with nice pants and some jewelry it could easily take you out to dinner and the opera. Like most of my Joie pieces I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of this top.

Very Tricky Backing
I love these little earrings, but there's something about the backs which make them extremely difficult to attach. You have to really shove, and they can go in the wrong way and end up getting bent. I'm just going to put different backs on them, but it seems like a sloppy design flaw. They're pretty cheap though, and I'm getting a lot of use out of them. It's just annoying not being able to quickly throw them on as I'm heading out.
