Too Much Material
I wanted to love this skirt but it has too much material, which causes two problems: 1. I ordered it in size 12 and I am plus size. Yet, it is way too big for me. 2. I have no bottom and no hips. Yet, it is way too big for me. ***usually I am a size 12 in GAP and I wear a size 8 elastic waist in Thakoon Addition. I cannot imagine this skirt not making people look larger than they are actually are. There is just way way too much material even when belted. It's like a balloon. I think you will definitely need to wear a belt because of the draw string (the draw string is good since you can adjust it however). I thought about ordering the smaller size; however, I imagine the amount of material would not change all that much. My daughter says that "the way the pockets are positioned makes it look like an apron".
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Pretty Decoration For Book Shelf: LUV!
I didn't read the measurements and thus the book is smaller than expected (not the thickness though; it is as thick as it looks in the images). However, I say true to size since the measurements were listed. The blue really stands out among the collection of fashion books on my book shelf. It's a great collection of sociological-historical images. For example, images from the 1940s of women shopping for leopard pelts really caught my eye (I am glad that period is long gone). There are images of Josephine Baker and James Dean, among other icons, which are to be treasured. As a 3rd example: there is a collection of images that show how Native Indian dress or other traditional dress has found its way into the mainstream. This section is very sociological as one might think about this in terms of exploitation or imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. This can be a very political book or a very straight forward fashion book - it all depends on your interests (IMHO).

Seems shorter than 15"/ L fitsup to10/12
I have other 15" skirts that seem longer. I would not feel comfortable wearing the skirt without tights due to the short length. It is a very very stiff leather. If you are apple shaped like me, the skirt can make one look a little more disproportionate (top vs. bottom) since the pleats are cut so that they are very slimming (as opposed to most pleated skirts that can make one look larger on the bottom than one actually is). What a deal at the sale price of about $90 USD!!! OVERALL, a beautiful skirt. The size LARGE fit me and I am about a size 12 - think GAP skirts (i.e., I use GAP sizing since GAP is a brand/store most people arefamiliar with). It's a tight fit though. I have a bit of a belly and hence the tight fit. I hope this review helps others.

Quality,Classic Style,& Dark Colours 5+
I have the Cambridge Satchel Classic 15" IN BLACK. I love it!!! It is big enough for my profession: an educator. It is very professional looking & I love the nod to the U.K. :0) It is classic. I even imagine I will pass it on to my granddaughter in a few years when she is older (maybe with age, the bag will become even better looking). Finally, I am not keen on this type of leather. I like pebbled leather as it seems to take the 'wear and tear' better than this type - every scratch shows up on this type of leather in my experience. Thus, I usually avoid any bag made of this type of leather. However, I think the darker colour - BLACK or NAVY - puts those concerns to rest. Highly recommended.

Seems shorter than 15"/ L fits-up to 12
I bought the cream version and I love it!!! The LARGE fits me (I am a size 10 to 12 (imagine GAP sizing)). LARGE fits me perfectly. It is a little short for a 15" skirt I think. Other 15" skirts I ordered from shopbop.com seem longer. Similar to a previous reviewer, I would not feel comfortable wearing this skirt without tights due to the length. Well worth the sale price. The only reason I didn't order a 2nd one - the green - is because green is not a colour I am comfortable with. But if you like the colour & can afford it, I say "go for it". :0) :0) :0)

A lower price point would be reasonable.
Overall a nice bag. I like the Mod-style faux pockets. Cons: The MARC BY MARC JACOBS wording in the little square is not very clear on my bag; a little blurred. To some people it may seem more like a beach bag than a tote. A lower price point would be more reasonable. The image of the model hanging it low, by her legs, makes it seem taller and wider than it actually is.

Love it!!!
Fashion Box by Antonio Mancinelli is not only filled with the most amazing images of some of the most stylist women, but is deceptive in the best way possible. With its focus on 16 wardrobe staples one might assume limitations on how the author might give the reader ideas on how to dress. So not the case. In addition, the box format is "to die for". It looks beautiful on my ladder bookshelf with my other fashion books.

Iconic Print (e.g. Tavi Gevinson)
I have many YARNZ scarves and this one will not disappoint. The combination of silk and cashmere makes the scarf fall beautifully. The material is especially lovely for late fall in Canada or even indoors in the winter months. Highly recommend, especially due to the iconic print of Bill Cunningham, Scott Schuman, Garance Dore, Bryanboy, Tavi Gevinson

Looks like I paid $5.99 for it at Ardene
Returned it. The charms in combination with the ribbons and chain makes it look really cheap overall. I see necklaces like this at Clarie's and Ardene (at the local Mall) all the time for $5.99 CAD. I think the Charms & Orange Ribbon Necklace would better suit (1) a pre-teen who wears it for fun and doesn't care what happens to it & (2) a much lower price point. The charms look so cheap. I bought it because of the owl charm and Eiffel Tower charm. The charms look plastic to me. Very disappointing. I hope this review helps however.

Not as cool layered as it appears online
I am returning it because the key is way too long for my taste. I studied the various images on ShopBop.com before purchasing it (this necklace is used on a few of the models, as a layering piece with other necklaces, like the Maison Scotch camera necklace and looked so cool & hip). I concluded it would go nicely with my Maison Scotch Eiffel Tower necklace. I was wrong. Maybe on someone with a thinner neck it would be cool. Finally, I recommend waiting for it to go on sale as the price point is a little too high for what you get. IMHO the Maison Scotch Eiffel Tower necklace is way nicer.
