Hard to wear
The piece came quite fast and the lace is gorgeous. I just couldn't secure it for the life of me. The button is just too big for the loop to go around. I looked to find away and thought perhaps there was an easier and obvious way to do so, but to my avail, it didn't work. The caplet is quite small and personally, I think it was expensive for $250, but I got for $80. That's is probably the max I would pay. I am 5'2 and weigh 108 lb. I got a small. Sadly and disappointedly, I returned it.

Lovely And Elegant
I purchased the Chantilly Capelet to wear for my wedding this coming spring. I was looking for a coverage option that would match the chantilly lace on my strapless gown and this matches beautifully! It is delicate and soft, light and very comfortable to wear. The crystal button closure adds a lovely touch of sparkle. The capelet offers elegant coverage while still being sheer enough to see the sweetheart neckline and the detailing on my dress. The only thing I would suggest changing on this capelet is the shape of the crystal button. Because it has separated sections, like flower petals, it makes it somewhat difficult to get the elastic around it to take it on and off. Otherwise it is very secure and stays in place. The ordering process was a breeze and it came sooner than expected. For measurement purposes, I am 5'6", weigh 125lbs, bust 34A and my shoulder width is 39 centimeters. I ordered a size small and it fits just right. I am definitely satisfied and pleased with my purchase!
