Telling Time Not Easy Due To Colours
I love this watch. I bought it on 14 May 2011 and I have worn it almost every day since. Today is 2 October 2011. A warning however: It is not easy to tell the time given that the hands are black-on-black (with the exception of the second hand which is gold). I think the watch looks more expensive that it is. I have two Marc Jacobs watches and I love this one far more. I think this version is probably a good take on The Ceramic Time Teller, which sells for $450.00 on shopbop at this time. I love the 100 meter acetate case with hardened mineral crystal and the acetate links with stainless steel deployment buckle.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Jennifer Aniston Owns Bronze Leather One
Jennifer Aniston has worn this exact necklace - but her's is the bronze leather pouch version. Given my own style preferences, I consider her a women of great taste. Hence, I knew I would love this necklace. At $18.59 Canadian (70% off), I think I got quite a deal. Thank you shopbop.

Looks Cheaper Than Pictured
I 100% support the opinion of the previous reviewer who thought this bag "looked cheaped" & returned it. (1) Compared to the peddled leather in my Marc By Marc Jacobs (MBMJ) bags, for example, this is a much cheaper looking (processed) leather. But then again MBMJ bags are 3 to 5 times the price. (2) The push-lock at the front flap may also contribute to the cheap feel. (3) This bag has no frills, including no cloth lining. (4) I even found the interior patch pocket cheap, as it was basically folded over when I put my hand inside the pocket. (4) It is a leather that will scratch. Even when I took it out of the box shopbop sent it in, it had a little scratch already. Originally I thought I would still keep it given the classic colour and style. But I am thinking about returning it as it is very cheap looking and feels cheap too. If it was not Madewell, I would not think twice about returning it. The colour, simple style, long strap, and brand name is what I like about it.

Fell Off Wrist Within 10 Minutes Of Wear
I returned it. It is smaller than expected in terms of the overall style. The decisive point for why I returned it: It fell off - came unclasped - almost immediately. I tried it on, wore it for about 10 minutes, and then it fell off. I had not left my house, so luckily I did not lose it outside. The loop for closing the bracelet seems too large for the little bell; and hence, it falls off easily. At 70% off, I think it is a great deal if you can ensure you won't lose it. Maybe still too expensive for what you get at 50% off ("maybe"). As a final note, I think the gold on the turquoise version is a little cheap-looking, while the "smaller-than-expected" size adds to the inexpensive feel.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

I own red,green,tan,&black: BUY,BUY!!!!!
If you are a Marc Jacobs fan and no matter your age, & especially if you are a student or teacher, in my humble opinion you cannot go wrong with this purchase, especially at approximately $90. Wow!!! I love this style so much, I bought the green and tan for my daughter (on sale) & the red and black for myself (on sale). In a review for the others, I mentioned a "drawback" ... "even with lots of books, papers, etc. inside the bag, the bottom is not heavy enough to stay flat". This turned out to be an non-issue. The flaw lay with me. It was the way I had positioned the books and papers. Lay your books flat inside and it looks just like the image. The black is very pretty as it is classier than the other colours. Moreover, from my perspective the logo is still very visible despite the dark colour. The black bag is my favorite of the four colours. I think a person would be lucky to get this bag for $90. I paid $124.60 for it on sale and it is originally $178.00.

Will Most Likely Soften With Wear/Luv It
I own an identical Tolani scarf to the Tilo Animal Print Scarf; hence, I was pretty sure I would like (or 'get use to') the material in the Tilo Zebra Print Scarf, which one of the previous reviewers mentioned was "harsh". My Tolani Animal Print Scarf, which is also 100% linen, has softened up with wear. And, when new, it was much harsher on my skin than my Tilo Zebra Print Scarf (brand new) appears to be. When I tried my Tilo Zebra Print Scarf on, I couldn't see the Zebra pattern as much as I would like; however, I'm certain this can be easily fixed with some re-arranging. These linen scarves are great all-year-round. If you already own the Tilo Animal Print Scarf (TILOO40004), also now on sale, the Zebra scarf may be too much like it for most tastes. At CA$85.15 (50% off), the price I paid (+ customs), this is a steal IMHO.

3.5' wide by 6' long doesn't work for me
POSITIVE:The geometric prints are gorgeous & one can easily tell the designers drew inspiration from their travels to the Mediterranean. NEGATIVES: (1) The tie-dye -- bon vivant mentality of the late '60s and early '70s -- is not favoured by me. Less tie-dye and it may have worked. (2) At 3.5' wide by 6' long the scarf measures too wide for the way I would like to wear it -- like the model in the accompanying image. When I wear it like the model, the material overwhelms me, even though I am 5'9" and about a size 16 (US) on top and a size 12 (US) on the bottom. My immediate solution was to think of it as a shawl; however, the dye tie doesn't appeal to me when worn that way. Too much tie die on a small space. I may return it.I've been in-love with this scarf since it 1st appeared,but it's one of those products that disappoints upon sight.I paid CA$126.44(30% off), plus customs. Recommend for those who do not mind the negatives listed here at 50/70% off.

Color,Size,Pattern is PERFECT! 5++++++++
I highly recommend this computer bag. My small computer fits perfect within it, with room to spare. I can even fit my mouse in the bag and a small mouse pad. I was going to buy the Miss Marc Packables Zip Pouch with this exact pattern, but I will pass on it now as the Computer Case is CA$ 53.38 and the Zip Pouch is CA$ 59.53. Since I have other Zip Pouches, I conclude that the Miss Marc 11" Computer Case can be used for things I put in the Zip Pouch. However, the Computer Case seems more durable. Only one small issue: Neoprene--a synthetic rubber that the laptop sleeve is made from--has a funny smell (in the opinion of my nose); but I plan to spray the bag. This is no big deal IMHO. The good news though: Neoprene tends to be weather-resistant. It is commonly used in weather-resistant products, adhesives, shoe soles, and sportswear.

Sizing Difficult 2 Determine
The chart by Shopbop,which gives the majority of people such problems would've worked for me.I followed the reviewers' advice (which, despite it backfiring this time, is much valued ALWAYS.IMHO, Shopbop greatly improved its service when it added the REVIEWERS FEATURE).Unfortunately,my Soludos are at least one size too big.Alas, customs on these shoes was nearly $17, which is almost the cost of the shoes.I am forced to return these.I hope I can get my customs money back (I think there is a way, but it is another hassle).Alas, however, I lose the postage charges back to America since returns are not free from Canada.I would recommend, due to sizing issues, customs, etc., people purchase these in their towns or cities (if they are available).As a final note, the quality of the Soludos remind me of those little black cotton shoes you can find in ChinaTown, except I think the Raffia footbed probably makes these more long-lasting.

Color,Size,Material,Pattern is PERFECT!
Color: The grey is almost like a blue & it is gorgeous. It will undoubtedly compliment many outfits. Please note: My daughter thinks I am color-blind, so it may be more grey than I think. :0) :0) :0) Size: I usually prefer a rectangle as opposed to a square shape in my scarves. I almost didn't buy this item due to the measurements: 4.5' wide by 4.5' long. However, I am glad I did purchase it because when I fold it into a triangle, it makes the most GORGEOUS shawl. I will actually purchase more 4.5' wide by 4.5' long scarves as a result of seeing this one. Material: The combination of 55% viscose/25% silk/25% cashmere causes the shawl/scarf to fall beautifully. Pattern: I bought the canvas bag with the mouse pattern for my daughter; but given my age it would not suit me & hence, I do not borrow it. Nonetheless, the subtle color makes this scarf appropriate for us older ladies in my humble opinion. If you can afford it & love scarves/shawls, BUY BUY BUY!!!
