Earlier this season the online clothing and home decor company Soft Surroundings contacted me and suggested a creative collaboration. Now, I would just be lying if I told you that I don’t love receiving gifts, and looking through their delightful catalog of casually elegant clothing I could see I would have no trouble picking something out, so I jumped on the opportunity to review one of their garments.
I immediately fell for the floaty, sheer, Kasbah Top. I thought it would be a stylish blouse to wear in autumn. If you read my blog regularly you know that finding clothes to wear this time of year is a challenge for me. It’s usually warm in Los Angeles in the fall, so I look for summer-weight garments in autumn colors. The sheer fabric and bold print in dark burgundy, black and tan seemed like a perfect fit. It was very hot the day I wore it, probably around 100 degrees farenheit, and I must say I felt cool, comfortable and very elegant.
I ordered the L/XL size as I usually worry that anything in a small or medium size will be too small, but as you can see from the photos the tunic is cut generously. Its long enough to be worn as a mini dress, so I paired it with a black slip and sandals.
Disclosure: Although I received the tunic as a gift I was not paid for this review. My thoughts on the garment are all my own.
