How do I luv thee?Let me count the ways.
1.Words such as forgiveness, gratitude, poise, creativity, bliss, love, & peace appear on the scarf. 2.The combination 95% cotton and 5% silk makes it soft, but without the challenges of 100% silk (e.g., so comfortable, I can wear it all day as part of an outfit). 3.It's limited edition; my scarf is #120 out of 180 manufactured. 4.A cloth cartoon of how to wear scarves in different ways is attached to each Leigh & Luca scarf; also, it comes in a plastic bag with the same cartoon stamped on the bag. I even love the plastic bag. 5.The velvet pattern is gorgeous & though I have tons of scarves, I've never seen the use of velvet like this before. 6.The colour is perfect for my complexion (reddish-blond hair, blue eyes, etc.). 7.I'm plus size, but the 4' wide by 4' long is perfect on me (e.g, I can wear it as the model wears it very easily, or in a triangle). 8.I luv the bird pattern. 9.Made on 100+ year old looms. Worth the sale price of $115 US, with an added $35 US customs.5+/5 stars.

Brown Ring @ Wrist & Hairs Get Caught
NEGATIVE:After wearing it from 11AM-5PM,I noticed a brown ring formed on my wrist (much like brass jewelry causes blue or green rings).NEGATIVE 4 ME:The hairs on my lower arm, near my wrist get caught in the strap, & can be painful.I like to wear it over my sweater sleeve therefore.POSITIVE 4 ME:I love the masculine look.Very masculine; so much so that others might think you're wearing your husband's/boyfriend's (etc.) watch.POSITIVE 4 ME:I luv how it has a big face&wide strap, & slides up-down a little on one's wrist.In other words, it doesn't stay in one spot like most watches.I'm plus size, 18 on top though & I respect the other comment that reads, "The band is stretchy and huge! There's no way this watch fits on a women's wrists without having to be sized." So keep your body size in mind.I'm not skinny & hence need bigger things such as earrings, watches, purses, etc.).If UR bigger like me,it might work better 4U.I pay customs in addition to the $80 U.S. price&I'm happy re: price.

Ball-Chain Necklace Too Delicate
The Negative: The ball-chain connector clasp is a little bit tricky to handle and looks cheap (the chain looks cheap too). I am afraid the clasp will break if I open/close the necklace too many times. Worst still, I worry the connector might come undone, or the chain may break and fall off my neck without my notice. The Positive: The functional mini harmonica pendant is the BEST part, although my copy came a little scratched up on both sides. The see-through magnetic box it is packaged in is very cool.

I'm A Sucker For Peace Signs
With a price tag of $38.50 on sale, I am still not convinced this item is worth the price. I suppose it is the brand name for which we pay. I am a sucker for peace signs so this is why I purchased the Peace Charm Wrap Bracelet. I actually found the length of the silk wrap too long and hence awkward. The gold peace charms are a little on the cheap-looking side IMHO (but not too bad). The silk wrap is quite lovely to look at; the red is gorgeous. gorgeous, gorgeous (did I say gorgeous?); and who would turn down a bit of peace? (LOL) I ended up giving my silk wrap away to a younger member of the family. I am 40; she is 24. She seemed to appreciate it more.

Broke Upon Few Wears
Beautiful earrings, but delicate. I even bought these earrings in the two available colours as I adored them so much. Alas, one pair arrived already broken (I returned them). The second pair broke after only half a dozen times in my ears. It is the nature of the huggie earring IMHO. No doubt, however, these are GORGEOUS!!! But for me it was like throwing money away as the earrings break so easily.

Use It As A Laptop Carrier 5+/5 STARS!!!
I am delighted to see the Logo Travel Mirror Vanity Case back in stock because I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE mine. I am delighted to be able to review it. I use it for my small laptop. The laptop and cord fit perfectly into one side; while my USB driveS (I have tons), my DCI Robot USB Hub, and much more fit neatly in the various compartments. The compartments are see-through, so the case is perfect for finding things fast. The Vanity Case sells out fast; consequently if you like it and have the money, I'd recommend that you BUY BUY BUY. It is my favourite item I bought from shopbop thus far (tied for first place with my Marc By Marc Jacobs Saddlery Sophie Tote).

Ball-Chain Necklace&Connector Is Fragile
I love my Harmonica Necklace. What I love best is when my one-year-old granddaughter puts it up to my mouth to have me blow. It's fully functional. Three concerns however: (1) the steel ball-chain necklace + ball-chain connector are delicate; consequently, I worry it could break easily or fall off my neck, and be lost, all without notice; (2) my copy of the necklace arrived scratched on both sides of the harmonica pendant; & (3) the functional mini harmonica pendant is a bit smaller than I expected. If you like the trendy harmonica pendant necklace, I might suggest buying one of the less expensive versions depending upon your situation. On the plus side, according to one of the designers, "Blow is all about freedom, self expression and fun. It's an iconic symbol that transcends age, sex and 'race' and represents the positive human spirit and joy of life." Blow's unique packaging is as cool as its content; it arrives in a transparent heavy little black box with a magnet seal.

Bought White Ones First, Like Grey Too
I have been considering these particular pearl earrings for awhile; however, I was hesitant, thinking the grey version might be less appealing than the white version I own & love. The selling point for me was the recent coupon discount. I paid $14 U.S. for these instead of the regular $20. Also, since I am plus size (16 to 18 on top), and a little over 5'8", I am happy to have the chance to own earrings a bit larger than most pearl earrings. My earlobes are large too. LOL. Consequently, these work great for me. The size is perfect for me. Given my personal tastes, I don't like the grey version as much as the white version. $20 is a great bargain for the white IMHO; however, I'm glad I got the grey Pearl Stud Earrings at a lower price. If you like big earrings & pearls, and especially if you have large earlobes, these are probably for you. As a final note, the white studs do not look cheap IMHO at all; but arguably the shine on the grey cheapens them a little. I hope this helps. :0)

Love Alkemie but not Black Owl Rosary
I own scores of Alkemie pieces that I adore (e.g., owl necklace, Buddha lock bracelet, buckle cuff, Buddha earrings, Buddha Rosary, et cetera). I wanted to love the Black Owl Rosary too. In fact, I ordered 2 different versions of the Rosary Necklace (Owl & Hasma Hand) at 2 different times & RETURNED BOTH. The beads are NOT wood; they are plastic. The sliver links between the beads are very cheap looking. When I was a little girl my Church often gave us children's rosaries which remind me of the plastic beads and silver links on the Black Owl Rosary. I am so sorry to post this review as I love this company; the designers are gifted artists and environmentally conscious. I continue to buy from them. Perhaps the version of my rosaries was an accident. The second pair, which I ordered in brown WOOD with the Hasma Hand, came with a spider on the circle part (the spider actually goes with the Spider-Web Heart Rosary and not the Hasma hand); so flukes occur.Alkemie does rock!

Especially Nice 4 Big Earlobes Like Mine
The Princess Cubic Zirconia Studs are quite sparkly and large; however, I expected the studs to be large due to previous reviews and also because I have a set of earrings with the exact same measurements that were larger than expected when they arrived from shopbop. The size works for me. The Princess Cubic Zirconia Studs are probably best for people with larger earlobes like me as they are less overwhelming on such ears. I understand why some customers might think they look "cheap" or "too fake," but on bigger earlobes this is less a consideration IMHO. If you like Marc by Marc Jacobs for example, maybe go with a pair of small earrings around this price from that line (especially if you have smaller earlobes or issues with "cheap" sparkly earrings). I hope this review is helpful.
