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 It is also an interesting historical document that one might see used as an example in sociology classes.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)

Highly Recommend: 5/5
This is my first piece by Monserat De Lucca & it will not be my last. It fits perfectly & is beyond gorgeous. The price is right and one might even argue that the Ducks In a Row Bracelet looks a little more expensive than it is. I have bought similar items on shopbop, and elsewhere, that cost 3x to 4x the price and were not half as beautiful or of this high quality. The Ducks In a Row Bracelet is a special piece, which I plan to keep for years to come. Warning: Brass will naturally oxidize over time. If you prefer a shiner look when this happens, a brass cleaner, brass polishing cloth, or lemon juice will restore the bracelet's luster.

Returned: May be issue of personal taste
I had the bag back in the box it arrived in faster than you could say, "Save the birds Lenny."I didn't like it at all.The color is a little different in person;a little darker IMHO.The chain is a little more gaudy IMHO (i.e., cheap looking gold).The material is a little shiner IMHO.Given these issues,I found the lack of the usual MBMJ label (i.e., the gold designer stamped plague) harder to deal with than I thought I would.This is obviously an issue of personal taste.But no one in my family was a fan of this bag either, including my son-in-law who gritted his teeth when he saw it & said, "As long as you like it."I list it as "True to Size" because I carefully studied the size before ordering it.It is huge.If the purse was not from MBMJ I wouldn't have given it even a second thought when packaging it up to return it.Alas,I lose money from customs,while returns are not free if you live outside the U.S.;hence, one has to consider deeply whether it is worthwhile to return items.

Very lovely
I bought this ring for my 20-something niece. She would rank it a 5/5. For me, just by looking at it, I'd rank it a 4/5. She wins!!! A nice price, which gives one the ability to gift someone who is a fan of Marc Jacobs something of his design. The fact that it is from MBMJ makes it very special for my niece. It stands out on her finger (people compliment it all the time, giving her the chance to tell them it is MBMJ, lol). Even the little white MBMJ bag it comes in meant a lot to her.

'70 Bohemian Flare & Gorgeous!!!
I received my GORGEOUS BAG today at about 10 am and wore it immediately because I LOVE it!!! HOWEVER, Designer Boutique items are suppose to come gift boxed at no additional charge & my 3.1 Phillip Lim Benjamin Envelope Wristlet did not. I received the 3.1 Phillip Lim dust cover bag (nice too!!!) and my the bag was wrapped in black Designer Boutique paper; but I received no box. I have received a box before when buying from the Designer Boutique; but not this time. I wanted the box to store the bag inside when not in use. As for the product itself, the amber hue of the leather looks supple, yet relaxed. People took notice of it and complimented it for its timeless appeal. This will always be in style. The detachable wristlet strap is my favorite part; you can dress it up for night by removing the wristlet. I LOVE carrying it on my wrist. Finally, the interior features make this a very practical and first-rate bag, including double main compartments with middle zip pocket.

Maybe Not For "Star Trek" Fans...LOL
It's not my style usually but I love it. My only issue is that as a "Star Trek" fan ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" in particular) it reminds me of the Bajorans. If you are a "Star Trek" fan you know what I mean; but if not, it's a real cool earring & well priced. The Peace Treaty rocks!!!

2nd Amulet-Style Peace Treaty Necklace
This is my second amulet necklace from The Peace Treaty. The first, THE ALMAR (bronze chain with hanging dotted amulet), I bought last season. THE ALMAR is 9.5 inches long; hence, a significant amount longer than the current version. As soon as I received the Etched Amulet Necklace today I put on both necklaces. I think they look unique & special together; and amazing alone. The Peace Treaty tag is attached to the front of this piece; it is usually on the back on the necklaces or easily removable. I will remove the tag asap. If shopbop carried all of the THAR COLLECTION from this year's Peace Treaty line, and if money grew on trees, I'd buy tons of the pieces. I think the THAR COLLECTION is even more beautiful, generally, than last year's SUNARI COLLECTION; though last year's ALMAR is nicer IMHO than this version of the amulet necklace. These are handmade pieces and quite special with an important message. The Peace Treaty Rocks!!!

For everyone:Even forty-ahem-somethings
Absolutely gorgeous!!! I almost don't want to use it as surely the wear-&-tear will take away from the beauty of it given that it is 100% Silicone. A adore Miss Marc but at forty-ahem-something years of age and as a plus size lady, wearing a shirt with Miss Marc on it seems really REALLY wrong (and is frankly not even possible). LOL. This hot pink cute key chain fits the bill perfectly. And best of all, I won't have to worry about leaving my USB drive behind in the classroom. The box it comes in is arguably a keepsake too, even if it is cardboard. I plan to buy a second and perhaps the other MBMJ USB drives.

Thinking About Sending It Back
If it was not MBMJ I would not even think twice about returning it. It would go back to shopbop.com asap. It is a little disappointing and even though it is MBMJ I think it is overpriced. I think I will return it. If it were say $100-$120, I might think it worth the value (I pay customs too). I am guessing it is $180.47 CANADIAN because it is from the 10 Year Anniversary collection. I would have bought the We Are Owls Skull Scarf instead had I seen this one in person first. The model material is very absorbent however (or so I read). It is about 50% more hygroscopic (water-absorbent) per unit volume than cotton. It takes dye like cotton, and is color-fast when washed in warm water. Modal is essentially a variety of rayon.

Bought red one for me;green for daughter
The New Standard Supply Small Messenger Bag is amazing. I bought the red for myself, and the green for my daughter. As my daughter said, "There is nothing wrong with these bags." I find it fits so much more than you might expect given it is a "small" messenger bag. Hence, I say "larger than expected" in a good way. There is so much detail to it that makes this bag very special. 1. There is a little belt strap inside (i.e., "Buckled strap closure at main compartment"). 2. The zipper pockets inside are nice and big for cell phones, pens, etc. ("Interior features 2 zip pockets.") 3. 2010 is stamped on the inside. 4. MBMJ is stamped on the leather handle. 5. There is a leather logo plate on the back. 6. The 30" drop from strap is so great for plus size (me), tall (me), petite (daughter), short (daughter)... I say BUY!!! BUY!!! BUY!!! At $126.33 CANADIAN this is a quite a deal.
