Bring On The Packables Zip Pouch ASAP
My 20-something daughter, for whom I purchased it, LOVESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS the Miss Marc Packables Shopper!!! She really liked the "Feed the Birds" packable shopper and packables zip pouch; however, this graphic is even prettier with the hot pink belt & platinum skirt Miss Marc is wearing. We anxiously await the Miss Marc Packables Zip Pouch version of this bag. I won't hesitate to buy it for my daughter. She likes the current bag so much, I plan to also purchase the platinum version of this same bag for her. As for me, I adore Miss Marc. But at forty-ahem-something years of age (& plus size), carrying such a bag with Miss Marc on it seems really REALLY wrong (Hahaha...). Hence, I cannot wait to get my 'Miss Marc fix' via the zip pouch version.

Disappointed
I bought this scarf in black-and-white and returned it. The only reasons I had for keeping it: (1) it is a 10th anniversary piece and (2) it is by MBMJ. It was hard to return it due to those reasons. However, I asked myself, "would I keep this if it were a lesser brand name scarf?" The answer was a definitive no. The biggest issues for me included: (1) the light weight material which would undoubtedly wrinkle too easily & (2) the fact that the skull pattern did NOT display well. In other words, regarding point (2), I don't think someone seeing it on your neck would be able to tell, very easily at least, that it is a skull pattern. On the plus side, the scarf did sell out quickly. Hence, perhaps my tastes are in the minority.

For Congo
Thank you Shopbop for carrying such important items. I love my Limited Edition Falling Whistle Necklace in Gold. The book that accompanies it, explaining the story of the whistle, is well worn now as I pass it on to many others. Please continue to carry such items. Not only is this for a great greatttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt cause, but it is also quite beautiful and sits close to one's heart (where it should).

IMHO: More Beautiful Online
I bought this bag for my daughter for school. She loves MBMJ. This is an effective school bag since: (1) the coating on the canvas can be wiped clean; (2) it is cute; and (3) the bag can hold plenty of books, papers, etc. without being too heavy (the more a bag holds, the more one might stuff inside it). Personally, I do not think the bag is as beautiful in person as it appears in the images posted on Shopbop.com. For example, the bag seems lopsided on one side & the material appears thinner than I expected. My daughter seems to like it very much however. We live in Canada and to return an item such as this would cost about $25 Canadian dollars. Please note: International returns are not free. Consequently, we do not return items easily or often since the return shipping is prohibitive.

If Shopbop had as its first image a shot of the full graphic print, I do not think this scarf would ever have gone on sale. It is too beautiful and truly a collector's item for all those who love fashion. I would love to have a 2nd one so I could frame the scarf and hang it. For all those who loved "The September Issue" and enjoy American Vogue!!! Now if only Yarnz made a version with Grace from "Vogue" on it. I love you Grace!!! Highly recommended for both its fashion appeal & its wearability!!!

Gold Plated? Turned Black After One Wear
When the Victorian Good Luck Necklace came out of the box, I was in-love. An earlier buyer said the yellow was a bit too yellow & I could easily see what she meant; but I LOVED it anyway. I was truly in-love with the piece. But no fear about the yellow, after one wear the gold had turned black. I think the gold plated part must actually be brass then (it even smells brassy)? I returned the chain the same day it arrived. That is how fast it turned. For a piece whose original value is so high, this is unacceptable IMHO (even if it is on sale). Such a beauty though. I had the Harlow horseshoe necklace too; but it was so cheap looking. Out of the box, the Bing Bang looked far more expensive and sophisticated. But after one wear, if it looks as bad as it did, what staying power does it have? In the end therefore, I am still on the hunt for my dream horseshoe necklace. Carrie Bradshaw, where are you? :0) :0) :0)

IMHO: Cheap Looking & Ugly Post Closure
I am a sucker for peace signs. Hence, I bought these at full price. I returned the product the very same day they arrived. IMHO they look cheap. Moreover, since I am child of the 1980s I am familiar with the style of the top round part. It immediately reminded me of the post closures from that era. If Erin Wasson had designed a different post closure, they might have appealed to me. Since these earrings are now on sale, perhaps another person will find them worth the money. At full price, I did not. These might appeal to the 20-something set more. Erin was recently on America's Next Top Model & her line was featured.

Highly Recommend: 5/5
This is my first piece by Monserat De Lucca & it will not be my last. It fits perfectly & is beyond gorgeous. The price is right and one might even argue that the Ducks In a Row Bracelet looks a little more expensive than it is. I have bought similar items on shopbop, and elsewhere, that cost 3x to 4x the price and were not half as beautiful or of this high quality. The Ducks In a Row Bracelet is a special piece, which I plan to keep for years to come. Warning: Brass will naturally oxidize over time. If you prefer a shiner look when this happens, a brass cleaner, brass polishing cloth, or lemon juice will restore the bracelet's luster.

Returned: May be issue of personal taste
I had the bag back in the box it arrived in faster than you could say, "Save the birds Lenny."I didn't like it at all.The color is a little different in person;a little darker IMHO.The chain is a little more gaudy IMHO (i.e., cheap looking gold).The material is a little shiner IMHO.Given these issues,I found the lack of the usual MBMJ label (i.e., the gold designer stamped plague) harder to deal with than I thought I would.This is obviously an issue of personal taste.But no one in my family was a fan of this bag either, including my son-in-law who gritted his teeth when he saw it & said, "As long as you like it."I list it as "True to Size" because I carefully studied the size before ordering it.It is huge.If the purse was not from MBMJ I wouldn't have given it even a second thought when packaging it up to return it.Alas,I lose money from customs,while returns are not free if you live outside the U.S.;hence, one has to consider deeply whether it is worthwhile to return items.
