My 5th Purchase of JumpFromPaper Bag
I have the black version of the Stripe Travel Bag. As a vegan, I appreciate the brand. Great sale price at $74.82 Canadian (plus customs). This is my 3rd JumpFromPaper for myself. I also bought one for my daughter and one for my granddaughter too. This one is almost a little too big maybe for the look (not for storage). I wonder if the red color would make it even more jarring. I keep to white and black for myself, as I am older. I wish the label "JumpFromPaper" was not on the front. It's not on my others. Thank the stars. I hate label overkill. The strap is a nice length for this plus size body to wear as a cross-body bag. My previous bags from this brand show a little wear after about two months, including little black balls and as expected, the white gets dirty. In closing, expect the paper effect more in photos than in person. I recommend the black and white versions for older folk, and for buyers to wait for sales. But this style works on anyone IMHO from 6 to 66+.

I bought playful Karl Lagerfeld too. LUV
The best part: The colorful embroidery and sequins. I love the yellow and purple. I am lucky to get a 2nd Mua Mua Book Clutch on ShopBop for $185.44 Canadian (plus, import fees). I bought my first one at 25% off. I could not justify purchasing a 2nd one at 25% off; so, I waited for the sale on this one. The little Anna doll is perfect (much nicer than the little Karl doll that came with my previous Clutch). My other Clutch was tough to open at first; this one opens easy (maybe too easy; but that's yet to be determined). In other words, the snap-bar closure at the side can be problematic. Yet, I hope ShopBop will get more of these. I would buy more. The two versions ShopBop offers are actually less pretty - the playful Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour images - than other versions I have seen elsewhere online. They are all sold out. The Dust bag is not so nice; looks like my granddaughter could have made it. Sorry.

Longer Strap Than Expected. Yahoo. :-)
I love the Stripe Shoulder Bag, with its surprisingly extra long strap that even fits this plus-size body as a Cross Body Bag. I got it on sale for about $80 CAD. There is one left as I write this review, with an even larger reduction (down to about $65 CAD). What a deal. The Stripe Shoulder Bag does NOT hold a lot though. Beware. But I knew that when purchasing it. I can fit the following inside it: A small Marc Jacobs purse for my bank card etc.; cell phone in the back zipper pocket (sticks out a tiny bit though); and a small change purse that is flexible and can be made smaller if need-be. The final other thing of note IMHO, is that this Black-and-White style is nice for us older ladies. I bought a pink one (i.e., Giggle Cross Body Bag) for my 6-year old granddaughter. I don't think I can get away with that color and style. Lol. I have the black-and-white Stripe Tote too, which matches this one perfectly. For me, this was a perfect dream purchase. Better than expected.

Perfect Purchase!
Cost: $19.86 Canadian dollars. The extra security of the double pinback. The face on this pin resembles a certain fashion icon. How could it be anything but perfect? Georgia Perry rocks. I'll be back for more Georgia Perry pins. Hopefully Georgia Perry will make additional fashion faces (including a magazine editor whose name rhymes with banana) and ShopBop will be listing those soon.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Closure Can Be Hard To Open, Subtract 1
The closure can be tough to open; hence, I subtract one star. In fact, I may still return it hoping that a different one (exact same product/item) would be easier to open. It is very pretty and since I am vegan, I can use it. It has a smell that one would expect from wood. Maybe it is the varnish, which will surely fade with time. The dust bag is not sophisticated - more like something one would make in Arts and Crafts. I think such things are way overpriced. So during the 25% off sale I treated myself to it. I hope ShopBop will get others with Anna and Coco on them. I will buy those for sure. If I am totally honest though, if this was not Mua Mua or I did not know what Mua Mua was, if I saw someone with this, I would think they bought it on Etsy not ShopBop.

Overpriced+U Need Thick Bit of Hair.
I bought the silver Large O Barrett from Mrs. President & Co. when it went down 30% in price. I think it was still overpriced, even when discounted. I would not purchase any of this brand's barrettes at full price. Besides price, the biggest issue to consider is thickness of hair. I have thick hair; and yet I have barely enough hair for this barrette. I have to use a lot of hair to get the barrette to hold and I am still not sure it has the potential to hold. One minor slight shake of the head and it is falling out of place. The barrette will certainly not stay put with a small amount of hair. I suspect it is not a good buy for people with thin hair. Price and the limited hold ability account for the 2/5 stars. I will likely return the silver Large O Barrette because of its inability to hold even an above average thickness of hair.

Great Quality. Great Conversation Piece.
This one was a bit of chance for me. But I had faith. It paid off. You can wear it so the faces are not as visible as on the model. The colour blue is lovely. I am huge fan of YARNZ scarves. The texture is lovely and the designs, especially the fashion icons ones, are to die for. I have more than a dozen YARNZ scarves now. 14 I think. Some are very old and still in great shape. In fact, aging seems to improve them. If you can afford it, treat yourself.

Great Gift, Even For A 6 Year Old
If anyone is thinking of this as a treat for their young granddaughter, GO FOR IT. I purchased this for my 6 year old granddaughter. Her first reaction, "It's really a purse" as she jumped for joy wearing it as a cross-body. It's as uncanny in person as in the images. My daughter was so pleased with the material (thinking when I ordered it, it must be plastic). Of course, per the description, it is not. I will next buy the backpack for my granddaughter. We are BIG fans of JumpFromPaper.

Hem seems poorly sewn. No stretch.
Since the skirt has an elastic waist I had hoped to fit into it. I think this size 8 is much smaller than one would expect for a U.S. size 8, and especially with an elastic waist. I could not get the skirt up over my hips. Alas, I shall return it. It is priced pretty reasonably, regularly, but especially on sale: $76.96 Canadian, plus import fees. Look closely at the hem however. See it? The skirt really does fall that way - down on one side. Now compare the hem on this skirt to the Elizabeth and James Braylon skirt - currently on sale at ShopBop. I think you can see the difference in quality? (Albeit the skirts are different price points.) My point: The hem on the cupcakes and cashmere skirt seems badly sewn. See the black version of this cupcakes and cashmere skirt - also on sale at this time - for the same hem issue. Despite the hem, I think I would have kept it had it fit (mostly due to the sale price & how tough it is to find fashionable reasonably priced skirts to fit me).
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
