Shape, material, & pattern are GORGEOUS.
I LOVE the Pickles Puppy: the navy and red version of this scarf. In addition to the pattern and colour, the shape is very nice and makes it possible to wear it in various ways. The 27% silk is a nice combination. To be honest, I am not a fan of silk, especially in scarves (sweat and silk is yucky). I wish it was a little less silk, but the 27% does not take away from my LOVE for the scarf. Best part: the dog pattern and stripes, and the gorgeous colour combination. The previous reviewer mentioned that the scarf works well with her dark hair. My strawberry blond hair is also a fit to the navy and red version. I like the navy and red so much, I may have a closer look at the other colour.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Calling Plus Size Gals
I am very happy with the BLACK version of the Tessa Eyelet Midi Skirt by Ella Moss. I am plus size, about a 14 on the bottom with more than a bit of a pot belly; yet, the size LARGE fits me comfortably - thanks to the elastic waist. At the same time, I find it slimming. I am top heavy and it helps to balance me out too. Beyond my happiness with the sizing, it is quite beautiful. I know I shall wear it all the time. In fact, I plan to buy a 2nd one in BLACK/LARGE. This is a skirt that does not come along often. Even if I was not plus size, I'd still love it. Well worth the high price point, and extra and high customs fees to import into Canada. A+++++++++++.

Stretcher Than Madewell Bayfront Skirt
When I first put on the red Madewell Turntable Skirt (size LARGE), it fit nicely. But I think it stretched after about 5 hours of wear. Now, the LARGE wears more like an EXTRA LARGE (maybe?). I'll have to wear it a few times to get a real feel for it. Nonetheless, this is ok for me since I am PLUS SIZE. I just recently purchased another elastic waist skirt by Madewell, the Bayfront Skirt. Alas, the elastic in it has little to no stretch (more like NO stretch). I should also note that though I am PLUS SIZE, I have a flat bottom and small hips. So, I can do with a bit of volume, which the Turntable Skirt has. It may not work for a bottom heavier gal. A final comment: I love the red.

This plus-size gal fit into LARGE
The Pierre Balmain Long Tank was a risk for this plus size gal. But the large fit me (albeit, it is tight and is not baggy as it is meant to be). I am 16 to 20 in plus size tops, depending on the brand. The RED colour is lovely too. I would not have purchased it, except for the EXTRA 25% off the sale price of CA$ 59.85. I also would not have bought it if I could find fashionable tops easily for my size. It is very hard to find anything nice for my size where I live; thus, I often have to settle by paying more than I want for a simple tank. Yes, this tank is Pierre Balmain and hence the price; but it is still a tank. However, if a tank can equal sophistication and elegance, it is probably from Pierre Balmain. I subtracted one star due to the price, which was expensive even on sale and with an EXTRA 25% off.

$5.13: What a steal!!!
I bought the Fashion Pack II Paper Dolls for my granddaughter for $5.13. It is so nice. I will keep it for her until she is older because it is too nice to be ripped apart by a small child. Lol. I'd love to buy Fashion Pack II Paper Dolls for every fashion conscious gal and guy I know.

CONS AND PROS
CONS: 1. Elastic does not stretch much. This plus-size gal was counting on a little more stretch. 2. It is see-through even with the underlining, and I am reviewing the BLACK one. The WHITE one: I wonder how see-through it is. 3. Lint gets caught in the little holes. 4. Customs (duties) to bring it into Canada is a killer. PROS: 1. The elastic waist helps this plus size gal (who is on the smaller end of plus size) fit into this stylist skirt. I have a belly that is my enemy when it comes to fitting into anything. Strangers ask me when I am due (i.e. they think I am preggers) all the time. I hope this information gives other plus size gals a realistic view of the fit. 2. The material - despite the lint getting into the holes - is lovely. 3. The price point is fair, especially if you can buy it during one of ShopBop's great sales like I did (25% off everything sale). 4. It is very practical.

Slow Shipping
Love Quotes scarves are awesome. I bought the HOT PINK and ORANGE when on sale. I own 16, going back to 2009 or 2010. Seasonless: inside in winter and to keep cool in summer and spring. Great sales from ShopBop on these - sales cut down on international customs dues. I ordered the scarves on 30 March; they arrived by Canada Post today (8th April). I don't mind the slow shipping because Canada Post is much more reliable than UPS and DHL in my city. But I use to order from ShopBop and the parcel would reach me the next day or no more than 3 days in total (including the order day). Only one real issue: way too much packaging for the the two scarves. Just stuff them into an envelope please; they came in a box and there was way too much paper inside. The scarves won't break eh. Thank you ShopBop nonetheless. You are GREAT.

On sale for a reason
Very small make. Nothing special. Not much cover/material. I may just wear it as a night shirt over a tee.

In-like with this scarf; not in-love....
Nice, but for the price (plus customs to bring it into Canada) a little pricey. For example, the words are not real as opposed to my Yarnz book scarf, which clearly shows words from THE GREAT GATSBY. People always comment on my YARNZ scarf, I don't think I will get the same reaction with this one. I think it looks like any scarf one would find in a mall in any small Canadian town. I will keep it and wear it twice wrapped around my neck for a more tight feel. I like to be "in love" with my scarves, especially at this price. I am "in-like" with this one.
