Cute Necklace, But SMELLY!
OK, I hate to post a review like this, but I need to be honest! This was as cute as it was pictured and it was the size that it looked in the photos. The beads were gorgeous and so was the fabric, but OMGdness it smelled bad! It smelled almost chemical or like a wardrobe you haven't opened in years. I wanted to put it on, but I am waiting to sun it tomorrow to see if I can get rid of the stink. Plan B would be to soak it in vinegar or douse it in perfume. Obviously, I never expected to face this sort of problem from purchasing a necklace!!!

Love them! But they are TINY!
I really like the design of these part-hoop and part-stud earrings. They are very punk, yet understated and cool. The only problem was that they are really tiny, and not at all like you see in the pictures. For that misrepresentation, I knocked off 1 star. I would have preferred them slightly larger, but I am still very happy with my purchase.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

J Brand is PERFECTION
I don't think I can say it enough - J Brand makes the BEST jeans for women of all body types. I'm 40 and have had 2 kids, so low rise jeans are no longer suitable for me. These mid-rise and high-rise jeans from J Brand are just right for keeping muffin tops in. Best of all - no camel toe tendency (Mother), excess fabric at the pocket area (MiH) and denim fabric that doesn't go out of shape (7FAM) no matter what. Slim fitting at the thighs and gently flaring below the knees, these lengthen and balance out very beautifully. Given these are super-long, you will need to have them hemmed up to fit. J Brand seems to have gotten this down to scientific precision, so don't worry about the flare, it will still be there - in the exact balance and proportion that's right for your height. I recommend J Brand to EVERYONE!!!

Love the Idea, Cool about the execution
I love the idea of an ID band that says "happy" in similarly joyful script. However, the 100% copper cuff was a little too skinny and flimsy for my comfort. For what it costs, this piece could have been better made in more superior material.

Soft but too thin
This was very promising based on the photos. Unfortunately, I should have taken what the other reviewers said into more serious consideration. The material was indeed very soft and lovely to touch, but it was so very thin that was almost semi/demi-sheer. What made it worse was that it ran a little small for me due to the princess seams. Coupled with the tissue thin material, the slightest bump or lump became glaringly obvious. I did think, sure, some shapewear will fix it pronto, but a dress like this is meant to be worn casually and comfortably isn't it? Sadly, I will be returning this.

Beautiful Hue, Superbly Made
Finally, Marc by Marc Jacobs gets this right! The green color is saturated and vibrant. The peter pan feature at the neckline is perfectly executed - intelligent, feminine and well sewn. The signature buttons are just the right side of vintage and exquisitely matched to the color of the blouse. Great tucked in. Great tucked out. There are no darts, so busty girls need to becareful with this piece. Otherwise, P-E-R-F-E-C-T!

Love the Print, Hate the Bulk
I couldn't tell from the images, so when this item arrived, I was surprised with how THICK the material really is. I love the "Wild Spots" print, but the knit is so substantial that it makes the dress bulky, especially where the pockets sit. I am 1.6m tall and the hem sits exactly at my knees so I will need to have it taken up a few inches to look more flattering. In general, I feel that the dress is true to size. However the sleeve cuffs were too roomy to push up my arm. Had high expectations, so I feel quite let down.

Cute Mice Studs, Poor Quality
I love the curled up mice design, but the backs feel a little loose and don't fit the posts snugly. I'm worried that they will fall off when I wear them out and lose them. Disappointed with the quality of MMJ. I will think twice before purchasing accessories from this line again.

Cute Studs, Poor Quality
Very cute little pear studs, less 2 stars for arriving with tarnished posts. Very clearly Made in China. MMJ needs to step up on its quality.

Gorgeous Print, Versatile Dress!
This is my first purchase from Thakoon Additions. (Yes, this is not from the Carbon Copy range - it's from "+hakoon".) I loved the batik print in black and white that somehow says ethnic and yet modern at the same time. The draping is subtle and the dress fits comfortably - not too body-con and not too tent-like. It's easy to dress up or down in this. As the bottom is more fitted, you can even hitch it up to wear as a tunic-tee with jeans or leggings. Thankfully, unlike so many things out in the market now, it's NOT sheer! I only gave it an average rating because for something almost $300, the fabric was a HUGE disappointment. It was thin, flimsy and cheap, and I doubt it will survive many washes. This is the sort of viscose material you find commonly at, say, TopShop. I love TopShop, but then stuff there rarely costs this much! Not sure if I will buy again, but I am keeping this one just because I like the print.
