"Favorite new piece in my wardrobe"

The beautiful colors in this piece and the way it hangs are both very pleasing. I love the simple buttons that hold the sides together.

"Beautifully made accent piece!"

This is a lovely piece to add to a Fall, Spring, or Summer wardrobe. It is very soft; the colors are vibrant, and it lays beautifully when worn.
