Cutest simple bandeau ever
This has become my favorite bandeau swimsuit ever! I was a bit worried at first that this would just be an ordinary bright-colored bikini (since sometimes Shopbop's pictures are misleading) but turns out that it is a shimmery material just as pictured. I got this in fluorescent pink ("lipstick", and it really is fluorescent like a highlighter, not like 'hot' or just 'bright' pink) and was a bit hesitant that it wouldn't go that well with my skintone, but it actually looks really good with my semi-tan olive (Asian) skin color. I am normally a 32/34B or C (depending on brands of bras) and the cup of size S is probably just right, though leaning only just a little to small. It was such a difficult decision to choose between "lipstick" and "teal" but although I went with "lipstick" this time, I'm totally getting "teal" the next!

Great pullover
I got this in "washed black" and love it! The sizing is just the way it's pictured: size S is loose and can even be worn as one shoulder slouched to the side. The washed out color is a nice effect to it and the quality is really soft so it is a very comfortable top. It looks great as a slouchy pullover and because it is a bit sheer, it'll make a great cover-up for the beach as well. I have a feeling that the cloth will produce those little cotton balls over time from washing, but it is such a good price for a cute top so I don't mind. I'd definitely get these in the other/brighter colors!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

My first Pamela Love purchase.
I have been eyeing this cuff for so long and finally purchased it when it went on sale. Absolutely in love! It is so unique and different from my usual accessories so I'm really happy with my decision to buy it. The only thing is that it is ONLY a little big for my wrists and I would say I have thinner wrists than the usual/standard. It'd come off easily if I wave my hands around but if I wear it up towards my arm, it would fit alright and still look good. This is not adjustable nor flexible so if you have a bigger-than-normal wrist, putting them on would be really difficult let alone taking it off. The quality is great, not too heavy but not light, and not as delicate as I expected it to be so I'm not too worried about it shattering if I bump it against something. Though I'll have to be extra careful to not let it fall off my wrist and break. This is definitely a great piece to play with for both casual and formal wear. So in love!

Pretty and great for stacking
This bracelet looks exactly like it does in the photos and has as good weight to it. It looks kind of cheap worn on its own for some reason....but when stacked with other bracelets, it looks stunning! It runs just a little large if you have thin wrists like mine, but I had expected that. Not much else to say about this but that I am satisfied with the piece although I'd consider it a bit pricey for what it's worth!

REALLY beautiful in person
These stacking rings are absolutely gorgeous! Not sure why no one else has reviewed this piece or if no one has actually gotten it before...They look much higher quality than the pictures shown and even feel expensive. The sizes however are bigger than I had expected. I had gotten these in size 6 which is the size I usually wear for my ring finger. I was planning on wearing these on my ring finger, but they turned out to fit like a 7 or even an 8 size, so I can wear them also on my middle and index fingers. So I recommend buying these one size down from whatever size you usually wear. Overall, for the money, these are very very worth it. The rings are very sturdy and have a nice weight to it and looks great individually, all together, and stacked with other kinds of rings. I have been looking for rectangular rings to stack and these are perfect!

Pretty but too delicate
This is a very unique pair of bangles and the Blue Multi color is magnificent. Yet like the other reviewer said, it is such a delicate piece and some of the strings start to loosen overtime from being worn. The bangle is really soft; it seems like the bangle itself underneath the colorful strings is made of cardboard. There also is an excruciating intolerable smell that reeks off of it which I cannot pinpoint..it's like a smell of a bad mix of spices. But maybe I am just the unlucky one as it seems the other reviewer didn't mention it. For the money, it is worth the design and the uniqueness. The quality isn't top notch but that is only because it is very very delicate. Overall, definitely a cute piece that could make any monotonous outfits pop.

Very poor quality but a fun piece.
I had received this bracelet and was disappointed to see that much of the gold paint from the chain was already chipped off. I was even more bummed by how poor the quality of the chain was: it was very cheaply made, very light, almost like plastic. The (faux?) leather straps were quite soft and nice, though. It was a little large around my wrist though I do have quite a thin wrist. Because of the versatility of the color--black & gold--this piece makes a great/fun bracelet to stack with other bracelets, which is why I had bought it in the first place. But it would probably not look too complimenting on its own.

Love it as a bracelet!
I bought this necklace in "new turquoise' and love it so much! It looks nice and simple on its own as a necklace, but looks even better when wrapped around my wrist as a wrap bracelet. I have quite thin wrists and wrapping them till the end fits perfect; it isn't awkwardly long but rather fits just right. The nuggets have a nice heavy feel to them and definitely feel and look higher quality than I had expected. The turquoise threading is actually very visible and adds to a fun pop of color even though the brass nuggets take much of the spotlight. Very very happy with this purchase and will definitely buy more of this same piece in other colors!

Purchase this in a size up!
I bought this in size 37 (b/c I'm a size 7) and it turned out to be too small.. I absolutely loved the way the teal color looked and wish that I could stretch it out but that would only be forcing myself to keep it. It was comfortable but my toes were a bit curled up in the front. I am unable to send this back to Shopbop b/c this product costs less than the DHL flat rate returning fee offered by Shopbop and would cost about another $50 to return it...so the only thing I'm going to do is try to sell it and purchase another one in size 38!

In love.
This bag is definitely one of my favorite buys. The color in the picture of it, however, is verrry off. The Fluoro series are VERY fluorescent, exactly like the color of highlighters. I purchased this in orange and it immediately draws attention. Surprisingly it's easy to put together w/outfits. The 11'' bag is very small. It doesn't fit much, but since it's made of leather (REALLY tough and hard leather) it could still stretch to some extent. The only down side of this is that the buckles are the only way for you to open and close the bag, as opposed to having a button that would make opening/closing the bag easier to do. The straps are tough but the more you use it the softer it gets, which then makes the coloring on the straps start to crack, though it isn't noticeable. Overall, the quality of the bag is great and is definitely worth the money. I would definitely buy the bigger one and other colors if shopbop sold them!
