Ribbons do not stay put when wrapped.
I purchased both the Pearl Pink and the Black. I prefer the Black. The little girls in my family prefer the Pearl Pink on me. Lol. These certainly bring the magic of ballerina dancers through the square toe shape and ribbons to wrap around the ankle. Alas, the ribbons DO NOT easily stay in place. Also, the ribbon on one of my Pearl Pink shoes is shorter than needed (it's hard to tie it) and thus shorter than the ribbon on the other shoe. Melissa is truly the master of jellies trend however. If you have allergies, be ware: all Melissa shoes are infused with a signature fragrance. I'll be wearing these rain-or-shine. I do find them very wide however and wish they were true to size. I am a TRUE size 10 in Yosi Samra shoes.

Wide & size 10 larger than I am use to
I purchased both the Pearl Pink and the Black. I like the Black best. I ordered size 10. I am size 10 in Yosi Samara (if that helps). The size 10 are a little big, but still fit. Maybe a 9.5 would be perfect for me. If not for the burden of returns and the chance that 9 would be too small, I'd try the 9 instead. These would be fine on people with wide feet, I suspect. I like that there is no leather. How nice to find a cool and fashionable shoe with no leather. I suspect I shall wear these with my long black Ella Moss Tessa Eyelet Midi Skirt and with Capri leggings. I like best the idea of street looks for an unexpected contrast or abusing the feminine look by pairing these with waist dresses. At $96.31 USD they are reasonably priced; but a higher price-point would be too much in my humble opinion. I look forward to prancing around in these.

Not for long walks; great for my life.
I own 3 black, 2 red, and tons of cap-toed Yosi Samra. I have so many, I'd have to count them to tell you exactly how many. How's that for a positive review? But I use them for teaching, walking around the halls of my campus, and for short bus rides to the mall. You will not find support and comfort for long walks in these shoes. "You will have sores and your feet will itch," my daughter said of her shoes. She tried using her Yosi Samra for longer walks and it was painful. As for size, this style - the rounded toe - is true to size. However, other Yosi Samras can feel tight. I like the more rounded toe ones, like these. I wear my Yosi Samra shoes with tights and skirts, with jeans, with leggings, etc. They go with everything. I never have a problem finding shoes to match my outfits with my collection of Yosi Samras. They take-up little space in one's closet.

Pink-red; elastic not flexible; pricey.
1.It's lighter in colour&more pink than the images shown.B4 purchasing it,I checked out other online images&now find the more pink images more accurate.Not a whole lot pinker,but certainly not dark red.2.The elastic doesn't stretch a lot.I'm about a 12-14 on bottom & the LARGE is a little snug with my pot belly. I'll wear it under the muffin top with a long t-shirt.3.This is a good choice for other women my size,who can afford it & who also probably experience the inability to find cute&cool clothes.4.It's over-priced, even on sale.It's just a cotton skirt really - a bit of silk.Looks 100% cotton.UR paying for label.I buy over-priced items since there's not a lot for women my size (18-20/top;12-14/bottom) to choose from & certainly not in my 'neck of the woods'.5.Slight pleating is fine with me because I have no hips & a flat bottom.6.Two pockets placed at either side of the hip is real nice.7.Fully lined.8.A-line skirt is flattering on a lot of us.Final Verdict: Too pricey;but sweet.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Outside Use Is 3 x Less Life Than Inside
I only wear Yosi Samra, and one pair of boots and a pair of sneakers. I have dozens of Yosi Samra ballet flats. This is how much I love them. I try to wait for the styles I like to go on sale, due to the customs (import fees) to get anything into Canada. These are gorgeous. The brown is a little lighter in person than in the photo. I bought these for myself, but my 30 year old daughter took them. Lol. I find these TRUE TO SIZE. I have a lot and wear them for the most part inside; so they have lasting power. They are not meant for walking long distances in my opinion: (1) get torn up on the streets and (2) not comfortable walking shoes/lack support. My daughter wears her outside a lot and while my pairs look brand-new, her pairs look worn at 3 to 4 times the rate.

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.

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.

Perfect Price 4 Parsian Fans
If you want to dress like french women, this book is the best introduction - especially given the price. The photos, drawn images and interviews are worth reading again and again. If you love the street style of french women, you won't want to miss the chance to own this book.
