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.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

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!!!

Falls Off & IMHO Cheap Looking
I bought the turquoise version of the JADEtribe Beaded Stone Bracelet about a week ago and plan to return it. It is smaller than expected in terms of the overall style. As a plus-size woman, it is too small for my wrist IMHO. But the decisive point for why I am returning it is because it fell off 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. 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.

My 4th Scarf Designed By Antik Batik
My 4th scarf by Antik Batik. All four are gorgeous. Two of the four I've had for approximately 3 years & worn quite a bit, year-round. The scarf I'm currently reviewing is especially pretty. I actually bought a very similar version in orange & purple about 6 months ago; thus, I was relatively certain I'd like this scarf. And I do like it; a lot! I highly recommend it, especially at the sale price. However, just a small negative: My version of the scarf arrived with the white wiry threads - that the embellishments are sewn on with - strangely hanging in loops and loose. I expect to get caught on them. I even had to cut a very long piece of the thread/wiry string off. If I lived in the U.S., where returns are free, I'd ask for a replacement. I'm keeping this one, UNLESS after I try it on the wire-like threads are more problematical than I anticipate. As a final note. I never think to give a "shout out" to the amazing staff at shopbop. UR the BEST!!!

FEED Your Soul:Functional&FashionForward
Thank you Shopbop for supporting the fight to end child hunger. This bag is as functional as it is fashion forward! With this purchase, you have provided more than a meal - you have invested in a child's future. I promise, you will look cool wearing your FEED 1 Bag, while doing something good for those who are less fortunate. For Shopbop shoppers who might be interested, there are other FEED products available on the FEED Web site. For example, I also own the FEED 2 Bag, which is a stylish, reversible cotton tote. Each FEED 2 bag sold feeds 2 children in school for an entire year through the United Nations World Food Programme.

IMHO: Cheap Looking
PROS: I love the length of this piece. It sells out quickly on all the online sites, including Shopbop.com. It has been featured in a recent 2011 TEEN VOGUE. Very Carrie Bradshaw. CONS: The only reason I did not give it 4 or 5 stars is because the gold colour arguably makes it look "cheaper" than I expected. I am still searching for my 'dream' horseshoe necklace. In fact, eventually I gave my House of Harlow 1960 Horseshoe Necklace to a younger family member.

Black-On-Black: It's Hard To Tell Time
I love the big face & wide strap. The black with a touch of gold is nice. HOWEVER, the black hands on the black face makes it very difficult to see what time it is. Nonetheless, the colour is actually why I bought the BLACK version. Though I worry the gold closure on the back may fade too soon. It slides up-and-down a little (just a little) on my wrist, which I like. Unlike other Nikon watches in a similar style, the band is NOT stretchy and huge. If your wrists are larger (or smaller) than average, I suspect you would need to have it sized. Extra pieces are included. So, as expected, keep your wrist size in mind. I'm not skinny & hence need bigger things such as bigger earrings, watches, purses, etc., but this Nixon fits perfect on me. I pay customs in addition to the $152.25 U.S. but I'm still very happy regarding the price. I might even consider buying the purple version in the near future. If it came in red, I'd buy it today. Highly recommend the BLACK.

One Worry: Possibility Easy To Scratch
ONLY NEGATIVE: The butterfly pendant is so flat that is easy to get finger prints all over it when you wear it. MORE IMPORTANTLY, any scratches will show up. HOW DO I LOVE THEE? LET ME COUNT THE WAYS: 1. The butterfly pendant is the perfect size & with a chain measuring 30.5" (77.5 cm) long, the pendant sits in a nice visible place. 2. The fact that the pendant & chain are not made of reclaimed-metal (brass) like so many of the most gorgeous long necklaces on shopbop is a plus. The gold-vermeil chain necklace & pendant (18-karat gold vermeil I believe ?) is going to keep its colour and not fade or tarnish. HIGHLY RECOMMEND: If you can afford it, BUY! BUY! BUY! There is good reason this necklace sells out fast and is an editor's choice. Finally, IMHO, for the quality it is reasonably priced. I will buy more Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry and SOON!
