4.0 out of 5 stars Slim 16, 8 Nov 2013
I love these shirt or blouses and wish Hawes & Curtis would do more patterned rather than striped designs. The quality is excellent and the 25 or so is worth it to every stitch. However, and this takes off a star, I think their sizing is odd. I am usually size 14, and the 16 which I took is getting to be on the tight side, and no, I do not use slimming mirrors.

I have paid as little before for such ipod nano skins and they were fine, but as I slipped this cheap 5th gen nano into the case, the snap-on split in two, it was not meant, it was broken.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Pup Age, 5 Jan 2013
This music is ok if you are looking for a muted 1920s style background noise - but to my cloth ears this album has next to nothing to do with the works of Roxy Music or Brian Ferry. I have recently bought Electro Swing music by the likes of Caravan Palace, so find The Jazz Age to be feeble in comparison, a nervous pastiche of a past era of music with nothing original to say for itself.
So I felt as if I had bought a pup indeed, and as other customers have said, the lack of vocals was a disappointment. I'm a bit miffed to tell the truth.
