You get 49 sheets of large, medium, and small tattoos.

    Promising review: "Anklets are the perfect finishing touch to a cute sundress or bathing suit. Items arrived on time and in a velvet gray sachet, which is both cute and convenient for storage and travel. Each anklet came in an individual baggie, so there was no tangling during transport. All 12 designs were unique and ranged from fancy to simple in design, which makes them cute being worn one at a time or paired. The 2-inch extender loops gives each anklet the ability to fit almost any ankle size. I would have easily spent three times what I paid had I gone to Claire's or any other cute accessory store to purchase 12 different anklets. I've already recommended the store to my girlfriends." —Benjamin Chay Sandlin

I particularly like that I don't get so much 'hat hair' with the roomy bucket hat, like with my baseball caps; there's some breathing room. My hat appears very well-constructed with rich colors.

I highly recommend if you are looking for a pretty ear cuff." —Gem Nicole
