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!

Bought Two Zip Pouches In Black
The Miss Marc Packable Zip Pouch is quite lovely. My daughter loves her black version and uses it as a pencil case. In fact, I also liked it so much, I bought a 2nd for myself (also in black) to use as a pencil case. I am thinking about buying this zip pouch in neon too.

Bring On The Packables Zip Pouch ASAP
My 20-something daughter, for whom I purchased it, LOVESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS the Miss Marc Packables Shopper!!! She really liked the "Feed the Birds" packable shopper and packables zip pouch; however, this graphic is even prettier with the hot pink belt & platinum skirt Miss Marc is wearing. We anxiously await the Miss Marc Packables Zip Pouch version of this bag. I won't hesitate to buy it for my daughter. She likes the current bag so much, I plan to also purchase the platinum version of this same bag for her. As for me, I adore Miss Marc. But at forty-ahem-something years of age (& plus size), carrying such a bag with Miss Marc on it seems really REALLY wrong (Hahaha...). Hence, I cannot wait to get my 'Miss Marc fix' via the zip pouch version.

Disappointed
I bought this scarf in black-and-white and returned it. The only reasons I had for keeping it: (1) it is a 10th anniversary piece and (2) it is by MBMJ. It was hard to return it due to those reasons. However, I asked myself, "would I keep this if it were a lesser brand name scarf?" The answer was a definitive no. The biggest issues for me included: (1) the light weight material which would undoubtedly wrinkle too easily & (2) the fact that the skull pattern did NOT display well. In other words, regarding point (2), I don't think someone seeing it on your neck would be able to tell, very easily at least, that it is a skull pattern. On the plus side, the scarf did sell out quickly. Hence, perhaps my tastes are in the minority.

For Congo
Thank you Shopbop for carrying such important items. I love my Limited Edition Falling Whistle Necklace in Gold. The book that accompanies it, explaining the story of the whistle, is well worn now as I pass it on to many others. Please continue to carry such items. Not only is this for a great greatttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt cause, but it is also quite beautiful and sits close to one's heart (where it should).

IMHO: More Beautiful Online
I bought this bag for my daughter for school. She loves MBMJ. This is an effective school bag since: (1) the coating on the canvas can be wiped clean; (2) it is cute; and (3) the bag can hold plenty of books, papers, etc. without being too heavy (the more a bag holds, the more one might stuff inside it). Personally, I do not think the bag is as beautiful in person as it appears in the images posted on Shopbop.com. For example, the bag seems lopsided on one side & the material appears thinner than I expected. My daughter seems to like it very much however. We live in Canada and to return an item such as this would cost about $25 Canadian dollars. Please note: International returns are not free. Consequently, we do not return items easily or often since the return shipping is prohibitive.
