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.

Lightweight
I chose "larger than expected" because I am plus size on the bottom (12 to 14, even a 16 sometimes with zippers) and the size LARGE fits me. Yah. I am unsure how the draw string rope tie at the waist (that lends a nautical theme) is going to work. I'd love a bit of elastic so it would stay up naturally. I may have to belt this skirt to "keep it on." IMHO, the textured stripe, which is very lightweight, is lovely and special. The pleated, A-line shape is likely to compliment most body types. I expected it to 'balloon out,' but it did not. I knocked off one star for (1) concerns on how it will stay put given the simple draw string rope tie/no elastic and (2) the price-point. I pay customs too, which makes it even more costly - even on sale. Due to my 'pot belly,' I won't be able to wear this with the drawstring showing. A simple long t-shirt and cardigan will cover that part. I'll wear this skirt in the fall with navy tights and navy ballet flats.

Yuck: Larger & Smaller Than Expected
In my opinion, I could find this exact skirt (or near identical) in any bohemian downtown store in a Canadian city. The stores that sell bohemian clothing, tapestries, incense, accessories, and housewares sell this kind of thing for much cheaper. And while I paid $49.53 for customs and another $207.03 for the skirt (more in Canadian dollars; that's US dollars), I could get a very similar or identical skirt for under $50 Canadian dollars here. I am very disappointed in Mes Demoiselles. "In person" the skirt does not resemble the image of the skirt posted here. For one, I am 5 foot 9 inches and it comes down to my feet. Larger than expected in this way. The elastic waist does not have much stretch at all. Smaller than expected in this way. Shopbop must have had the best steamer ever known to humans to pull off making this skirt look so good in the images. Yuck is my final word on this skirt. Yuck. Yuck. Sending it back on the same day it arrived.

Right Up My Ally:
I am using the "Universal Case" as a wallet. It is a tiny bit bigger than the usual Marc by Marc Jacobs wallets, fitting my many keys along with cards, IDs, etc. The smell of vinyl is to be expected; but I love it. The wristlet loop and the unique Marc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque are very cool.

Substract 1 Star Due 3 SureToBe Cracking
I bought the Hunter Clear Tote for my 30-year-old- daughter. She loves it. We accept, however, that it may crack, tear, and certainly scratch easier than we'd like. She doesn't plan to use it for a beach bag. She does not go to the beach. She will use it everyday; hence, it's life-span may be less than Hunter intended. My daughter is a huge fan of Hunter boots and products. She thus loves this clear tote. We love: Tinted PVC vinyl outer. We like: Vachetta leather handle straps and trim (we wish they were non-leather). We love: Moulded base with contrast red rubber feet to protect against scuffs and scratches. We like: Dog clip fastening (we wish it closed more fully). We like: Detachable Vachetta leather purse (we wish it had vegan touches). We love: Design details are inspired by the Original boot. We love: Size: H 33cm x W 39cm x D 18cm. Again, we love all the composition, but not the leather. We love: Base - 100% Rubber.

Calling Plus Size Gals 14 to 16 Bottom
I rate this as "smaller than expected" only because I have 3 other Chinti and Parker skirts and 2 of the 3 are size M. They both fit comfortably. I ordered size M this time - remembering that the L might be too puffy. I overlooked the fact that the "covered elastic waist" is only in the back on the Bow Print Mid skirt. This means that it has less flexibility than an elastic waist at the front and back. It fits a little tight but I think it will be ok and I will keep it. The material is gorgeous and one can tell it is not a "cheap" skirt. IMHO the pattern is much nicer in person. The pattern kind of reminds me of the beautiful patterns you see on traditional African clothes in some parts of that continent. For reference, I wear a size 14 to 16 (think GAP zip-up skirts) on bottom. I am 5'9". I have a flat bottom and narrow hips. I have a pot belly too. I am 18 to 20 on top; so this skirt balances me out.

Calling Plus Size Gals
Smaller than expected is my rating since I have other Chinti and Parker skirts, with elastic waists, that have more give. Size M is a little tight. But then again, I am a size 14 to 16 on bottom. The L would have fit more comfortably, but I would be fearful of the puff. As it is, the puff is still a concern on the M. I may send it back. I am plus size but have no bottom and hips; yet, this skirt makes me look as big on bottom as I am on top (20 to 22 on top), which is arguably good given that I like to look portioned. This is my 4th Chinti and Parker skirt and I find them to be stand-outs. The pattern on this one is much nicer in person than in the image. The material is of the highest quality. I am glad I got it on sale though. The cost to me: $127.67 in Canadian dollars, including $30.54 import fees. This is more when converted to US dollars.

By Five Eight In Height, Plus On Top
Picture this. I run a size 20(top)/10-14(bottom) to a 16(top)/10-8(bottom), depending on brand. Picture this. Size 3 in Raquel Allegra's Maxi Skirt on me. Quite something to look at. It makes me look so thin on bottom. I look like I have one leg. That's how thin I look on the bottom in this Maxi Skirt. Alas, I am not proportioned. I look like an upside-down pear. This Maxi Skirt is for proportioned people (what isn't eh, lol). I think it is gorgeous though. Nice thin breathable material. I am 5'8" and it is a perfect length for me - a tiny bit longer than pictured on me than on the model. I take away one star due to the placement of the pockets. The pockets are too close together IMHO. Think about how pockets on hoodies are placed and you get the picture. A final note: I am returning my size 3. Maybe one of you proportioned ladies can enjoy it. :)

Shape, material, & pattern are GORGEOUS.
I LOVE the Pickles Puppy: the navy and red version of this scarf. In addition to the pattern and colour, the shape is very nice and makes it possible to wear it in various ways. The 27% silk is a nice combination. To be honest, I am not a fan of silk, especially in scarves (sweat and silk is yucky). I wish it was a little less silk, but the 27% does not take away from my LOVE for the scarf. Best part: the dog pattern and stripes, and the gorgeous colour combination. The previous reviewer mentioned that the scarf works well with her dark hair. My strawberry blond hair is also a fit to the navy and red version. I like the navy and red so much, I may have a closer look at the other colour.
