Rated 1 out of 5Â by BBUSR I don't know what I was thinking....
Perhaps I was just drawn to the shiny object, but honestly I barely took it out of the bag once home and could not believe I'd purchased just a dreadful item. Now, you know the models in these pictures are pretty tiny, so for us regular folk (5'7", 127lb, 34-26-34) this is more like a handkerchief then a "capelet". It was impossible to style no matter how much I tried; it was just a piece of mesh, with a couple of sequins sewn on (and already falling off) and it looked ridiculous. And I do mean ridiculous... utterly and totally. So, spare yourself the trouble of returning and don't even bother with this piece.

This is pretty awful. The paillettes barely cover the mesh, so I imagine it'll be a problem as they fall off, since you'll easily see the gaps. And they will fall off; they began doing so as I removed it from the package, and again as I tried it on. It's pretty poor quality, and I'm sad to see, made in China. I bought this for a photo shoot, and I think it'll photograph well enough, so for the sale price, I'll probably keep it. But it looks like a costume piece, so I doubt it'll get any actual wear.

Even on sale price, I couldn't find any reason to keep this. Having read previous reviews, I took it out of the bag carefully and thankfully no sequins fell off. I agree about the gaps showing. If you look closely, the sequins are actually oval shaped and unless aligned somewhat perfectly, there will always be these white gaps which is visible even in the model's pic. To me, that was unflattering. The sequins are uniquely shaped and there are nice blue ones amongst the black..I'll give it that.
