Loved the look but only lasted 6 months. Our ******* set lasted us 4 years for a fraction of the price. The pillow cases are falling apart and tear easily. The stripes are actually threaded on top and are not just a design in the comforter. Therefor they snag on rings VERY EASILY and are constantly coming up. Also come out when washed. I like the set but the quality did not hold out at all.
