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.

Stays put/Holds a lot of hair/Novel
PRO:Stays in my hair on it's own (i.e., no need to seek help from hair ties to bolster it).PRO:It holds a lot of hair.I wore it as modeled in the image; and I have thick hair.PRO:Love the French feel of it.It's made in FRANCE.Yeah.PRO:Very original.A stand-out piece. PRO:Earrings etc. are not needed when one has this on with just plain old jeans and a tee, or even with something more dressy.CON:My daughter does not like the barrette.It reminds her of my Kenneth Jay Lane Butterfly necklace, which she calls "crass; cheaply vulgar; tasteless; crude."You may have her tastes and not mine.The gold is very similar to my Kenneth Jay Lane Butterfly necklace(which,I never wore by the way. I agree with her about it).However, on the barrette the butterflies are smaller & thus less tacky in my daughter's opinion.CON:It is pricey for a barrette and the customs (for importing it from ShopBop) makes the pricing even more of a CON.OVERALL:If you want a stand-out barrette, this may be it.

Pricey but L fits this 14 to 16
An Average to Good review would be more accurate. I deem it average because the material is very flimsy for the price. I paid 116.66 for it - more in US dollars - due to customs to bring it into Canada. I think it is too pricey for what it is. The good news, given that I am top heavy, it balances me out with just a bit of a flare. But that's when the material comes into play. Maybe a little too clingy for me. The good news, plus size gals who are 14 to 16 on the bottom may get this to work. That's me and the L fits. I rate it "true to size" because I don't believe in how society labels plus size. I would advise waiting for a possible 30 to 50 reduction before purchasing. I would not keep it if I had tons of choice as a plus sized woman. I think I could get more for my buck. I still may send it back. I am unsure. But I wouldn't keep it at 116.66 Canadian (more in US dollars) if I had so little to choose from as a plus size woman.....

Calling Plus Size Gals
I am very happy with the BLACK version of the Tessa Eyelet Midi Skirt by Ella Moss. I am plus size, about a 14 on the bottom with more than a bit of a pot belly; yet, the size LARGE fits me comfortably - thanks to the elastic waist. At the same time, I find it slimming. I am top heavy and it helps to balance me out too. Beyond my happiness with the sizing, it is quite beautiful. I know I shall wear it all the time. In fact, I plan to buy a 2nd one in BLACK/LARGE. This is a skirt that does not come along often. Even if I was not plus size, I'd still love it. Well worth the high price point, and extra and high customs fees to import into Canada. A+++++++++++.

Stretcher Than Madewell Bayfront Skirt
When I first put on the red Madewell Turntable Skirt (size LARGE), it fit nicely. But I think it stretched after about 5 hours of wear. Now, the LARGE wears more like an EXTRA LARGE (maybe?). I'll have to wear it a few times to get a real feel for it. Nonetheless, this is ok for me since I am PLUS SIZE. I just recently purchased another elastic waist skirt by Madewell, the Bayfront Skirt. Alas, the elastic in it has little to no stretch (more like NO stretch). I should also note that though I am PLUS SIZE, I have a flat bottom and small hips. So, I can do with a bit of volume, which the Turntable Skirt has. It may not work for a bottom heavier gal. A final comment: I love the red.

CONS AND PROS
CONS: 1. Elastic does not stretch much. This plus-size gal was counting on a little more stretch. 2. It is see-through even with the underlining, and I am reviewing the BLACK one. The WHITE one: I wonder how see-through it is. 3. Lint gets caught in the little holes. 4. Customs (duties) to bring it into Canada is a killer. PROS: 1. The elastic waist helps this plus size gal (who is on the smaller end of plus size) fit into this stylist skirt. I have a belly that is my enemy when it comes to fitting into anything. Strangers ask me when I am due (i.e. they think I am preggers) all the time. I hope this information gives other plus size gals a realistic view of the fit. 2. The material - despite the lint getting into the holes - is lovely. 3. The price point is fair, especially if you can buy it during one of ShopBop's great sales like I did (25% off everything sale). 4. It is very practical.

3rd Jennifer Zeuner piece, 2nd I liked
One star subtracted due to retail price. The Hamsa is a good size for this plus-size gal, as is the length of the rope chain at 30 inches. The six lucky charms definitely connect with my personality, per Jennifer Zeuner's motto. I LIKE the over sized hand. BUT I LOVE LOVE the elephant, lucky number 7, wishbone, horseshoe, four leaf clover, and the eye centered with a diamond. I also LOVE how the six charms are fitted like a puzzle with all of its matching pieces. This is my 2nd necklace from Zeuner. I have the large butterfly pendant, also on a 30 inch chain, from about 2 or 3 years ago. I have out-grown it a bit (i.e. seems too young for me now). I don't think I will outgrow this one. I purchased one of her bracelets from ShopBop and found it cheap and childlike. I returned it. I'll stick to the necklaces. ShopBop: would you get more Zeuner necklaces that are 30 or more inches please, for us plus size gals? Please, please. Thank you.

Gorgeous
Tied for first place for nicest item I ever purchased on Shobop.com. For women worrying that one's wrists might be too large for this strap; don't worry. It fits me fine. If you can afford it, BUY BUY BUY.
