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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

Cheap and Small: Child-like Bracelet
I have very tiny wrists and yet the Karma Bracelet fits me like Bruce Banner's clothes fits the Incredible Hulk. Unless you are very thin and have lots of cash to splurge on this with, I'd pass on this one. It looks cheap to me too. I am very surprised and disappointed.

Looks like a child's bracelet
I may keep this one for my granddaughter, who is now 4 for when she is older. I may return it. I would like to return it. It's so hard to get customs fees back when you pay these directly to Shopbop.com (Customs Canada requires so much paperwork) that I sometimes keep disappointing purchases. I have thin wrists and when I put the Karma Bracelet on, the very last circle is tight: completely tight. It does not hang and it is like the Incredible Hulk, bursting to get out of his clothes. It is very fragile looking too. It reminds me of children's bracelets; hence, why I might keep it for my granddaughter for when she is a few years older. I am very disappointed in it.

Love it!!!
Fashion Box by Antonio Mancinelli is not only filled with the most amazing images of some of the most stylist women, but is deceptive in the best way possible. With its focus on 16 wardrobe staples one might assume limitations on how the author might give the reader ideas on how to dress. So not the case. In addition, the box format is "to die for". It looks beautiful on my ladder bookshelf with my other fashion books.

Great Photos & Well Researched
In my humble opinion, overall a 5/5: PRO: The number & quality of images is first-rate. PRO: The book has a personal touch since the author discusses personal fashion influences, from childhood to the present (including images of family, friends, and herself). PRO: The organization, selected images, & descriptions helped me define my style better than ever before. PRO: The author has researched the topic at a PhD level, from old Hollywood starlets (e.g., Jean Harlow) to modern day icons. PRO: Dorothy Dandridge is included in the book. I've often wondered why Dandridge does not receive the same fashion icon status as Audrey Hepburn. She deserves it. About time. CON: I do not share the author's love of fur. The author advocates for fur. This is in direct opposition to my own ideological views. I wish she loved faux-fur instead. CON: Angelina Jolie is included & I don't quite understand why. All other inclusions are right-on IMHO.

Few Photos; For Fashion Book Collectors
A nice price and some very good advice. However, most of what is contained in the book is likely old news to those drawn to such books. As an additional point, the book contains only a few actual photos (with the author modeling in these or no model at all). Instead, the majority of images are drawn - almost cartoon-like. Perhaps this will make the images in the book remain relevant longer; however, I prefer more realistic images. For me, a copy of "InStyle" or "Glamour" containing an article on closets is as useful or maybe even more so than this book. I am glad to have it though as it is a nice book to add to my collection of such books and it looks cool on the bookshelf with the other fashion books.

4 Stars Since It Is Brass & Loses Shine
Gorgeous!!! It can be adjusted to fit very small wrists too. For example, I can fit it onto my granddaughter's 2 year old wrist (not that she would actually be wearing it at this point). The ducks are very detailed. The only flaw is that it is brass and hence won't be shiny as pictured for too long. My copy is very dull and brassy now. But I am told that a bit of lemon could shine it up easily.

For Fans of Grace Kelly & Old Hollywood
This book is a great gift for fans of old Hollywood and fans of actresses like Grace Kelly, because of course Edith Head was the insanely talented costume designer for many old films (e.g., "Rear Window"). It is also an interesting historical document that one might see used as an example in sociology classes. On both counts, this book is a win-win purchase for me. In relation to sociology (e.g., gender analysis), the book contains advice on "Getting and Keeping a Husband," including, "1. Decide want kind of man you want; 2. Find out what kind of girls he likes; 3. Know what kind of fashions pleases him; 4. Don't masquerade in clothes you hate just to attract a man. Be sure you are really, deep down in side, this kind of girl. If not, find another man!" My advice, inspired by the no holes-barred writing of Edith Head: If sociology or old Hollywood does not interest you, find another book! :0) :0) :0)

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.
