To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Very different than I presumed due to the misleading pictures of the “Colorful” color. Shawl/wrap seems to be made fairly well for what it is, so I gave it 4 stars. Here’s where the pictures are misleading: the “colorful” option is shown over a grey, long-sleeved shirt, leading me to believe this has sleeves. It does not. I can see as I look through the pics again, there are other pics, namely on the live model, that you could deduce that it does NOT have sleeves. So that’s on me. However, the pic with the close-up of the fabric shows it with the grey behind it, which I feel is completely misleading. I thought I was buying a muted, subtle wrap with a few sequins of different colors. Boy was I wrong! The “colorful” option is a black, net type fabric, with bright, peacock blue stitching, and sequins that are nearly holographic, in red, gold and green, depending on the light. SUPER blingy and not at all subtle! This would look great over a plain black something, but the peacock blue stitching is quite prominent, and really wouldn’t go over anything else. Perhaps a dull grey, but that’s it. I’m keeping it, as I still think it’s pretty and I can use it, but it’s not going to go with the dress I bought it for at all, so the search continues! If you’re looking for a bright, black and multi-colored dazzling evening wrap and you’re ok with a lot of bling, this may suit you perfectly! I suspect the grey color may be much more subtle, tho I can’t be certain.
Bought this to cover the top of my arms because the flapper dress I bought for a 1920s themed wedding had straps not sleeves. Couldn't believe how well it matched the dress! Although the picture looks nice, it's even prettier than the picture! I got a lot of compliments.
I am very sad this cape wreaked of FISH as Soon as I opened bag. It became unbearable once I took out of bag and unfolded. I couldn't even force myself to try on, the smell was so bad. I'm not sure what happened, since I just bought the paisley style from BABEYOND 1 week ago and had no smell at all. The cape to me was not cute enough to attempt to wash the God awful smell out. It seemed cheap and more costume wear than the paisley style. I ordered the black and gold but the gold is an odd silvery gold and beads look brown. I would recommend the other style which was beautiful and NOT stinky.
This shawl was very pretty. The item was true to the picture. My only concern was how it smelled. It was a new product and was made in a factory. It was a plastic-like smell. I put Fabreeze on it and hung it up.
