Rarely Does Juliet&Co. Fail Me: A+++++++
Like 2 of the 3 previous reviewers this is a rave review.I have several pairs of the Juliet & Co. pearl earrings & in my humble opinion, the necklace is en par with the earrings.I almost didn't order the necklace however, since 1 of the reviewers was "a bit disappointed with this necklace" because, for her, "it looks so fake."I respect that opinion since I've never owned real pearls.Thus, I suspect this necklace doesn't look fake to me for that reason.The same reviewer likes the pearl earrings made by the same company and comments that "they look so much better."If I was a potential buyer, I would think about this less positive review a lot.For example, if you are use to higher quality pearls, you too, might be disappointed.Finally, as the reviewer said, "unless you want pearls with a very creamy darkish colour" don't order these.For me, the darkish colour is lovely, but if you are expecting white pearls you will be disappointed.The pink box & black velvet bag it arrived in is lovely.

Worried Gold Beads Will Fall Off,But Luv
Directly after ordering the Vanessa Mooney (VM) Tucson Turquoise Tooth Necklace, I took my VM Buddha Square Amulet Necklace (VMOON4002711739314) out and put it on. I noticed that a visible number of gold beads had fallen off the white rope chain on the Buddha Square Amulet Necklace. I immediately regretted ordering the Tucson Turquoise Tooth version since it, too, has gold beads on a white rope chain. However, my fears went away, for the most part, upon seeing it because the gold beads on this necklace are larger & look more sturdy. But only time will tell for sure. One part of the design shouts "cheap, cheap" however. The brass object that attaches the Turquoise Tooth to the chain looks like someone made it in high school workshop class. I do like it a lot though. I am a huge fan of turquoise and the Tucson Turquoise Tooth Necklace, overall, is gorgeous. If you can get it on sale, even better. I got it with the 20% off for friends & family sale.

Reminds Me Of Carrie's Bags in Sex&City
This bag reminds me of the film "Sex and the City II". It calls to mind the large Alexander Wang bag Carrie Bradshaw is carrying is in the market, as well as the Vintage bag she carries when she is wearing the Zac Posen blouse/skirt and the J'Adore Dior shirt in an earlier scene in the same market. I already bought this bag in the dark navy on sale for myself, but when it arrived my daughter claimed it. So I am going to purchase a 2nd one in dark navy for myself. I love this bag that much!!! I think the leather handles are very good quality, though of course I respect the earlier reviewer who had a different opinion (and perhaps I am totally wrong). I love how large the bag is as it is good for shopping or for dragging to school (it's hard to find a big enough bag for my long clipboards etc.). I would buy the white version too if it became available again. The colours are so beautiful. And on top of all of that, my favourite flower is the sunflower. Thank you shopbop!!!

Very Plain But Classic
LESS POSITIVE: The peddle leather is very soft. I wish it were tougher so that it would keep its shape when not filled. LESS POSITIVE: It it very plain. POSITIVE: It is is very plain which means it will stand the test of time. POSITIVE: I wore it as a cross-body (I'm a teacher) and love it. POSITIVE: It reminds me of what classy ladies like Grace Kelly, Jennifer Aniston, Audrey Hepburn, & Caroline Bessette Kennedy would or would've carried. TRUE TO SIZE: Another reviewer said it was larger than expected; however, I thought it was very true to size. Maybe this is because "the bigger the better" is my motto. When I look at bags online I go over and over the dimensions. I wish it was a little longer actually. I am a MBMJ fan and if you are too, and can afford it, I say buy buy buy if you like classic styles.

Was On Sale On Shopbop Previously, 5+/5
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). This is the identical black bag that was sale back in August 2011. 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 a 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. I use it nearly everyday (I'm a teacher). 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, but you may want to wait until it goes on sale again. I paid $124.60 for it on sale; but even after that, I saw it on shopbop for a sale price of $90.

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.

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.

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.

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.
