I think this cami is so pretty. I just love that bow in the back. However, since I have not seen this cami in person, I was curious about it.
Luckily for us, Nicole R shared with us her review of this cami...
When I saw it in the catalog [January 2009 Catalog Pg. 14/15] I immediately fell in LOVE! :) I loved the tie on the side and how it was worn. Looking online, it shows it tied in the back- so I figured you had the option of doing either."Thanks!" again to Nicole R for her great review! :)
Attending the sample sale in NYC last week, I was hoping to find it, given they were advertising Spring items-- but no such luck! So when I walked away empty handed from the sample sale-- I called a couple of NY and NJ stores hoping they had it in stock-- but was sold out everywhere! I ordered it online.
I got it last nite-- and I must say it is beautiful! It is a jersey silk material. The colored is noted as a "faded yellow", but I would almost say it is a faded muted mustard/gold. The print is this and an off white--- very striking..... When I put it on--- my thoughts began to change.....
First of all-- there is a zipper on the left side that runs from about one inch from the armhole to one inch from the bottom. I am not really understanding the purpose, given I thought it was to be a slightly a-line shirt on the flowy side. The zipper does nothing but take away from how it is to drape on one's body.
Secondly, the tie at the neck is sewn into the top of the neck line. I at first thought it would be a situation as when you buy a suit and the pockets are lightly sewn but easily can be opened-- this is not the case. I immediately called CS and asked about the tie and how it did not allow me to have it on the side unless I cut it from the stitching at the neck..... The CSR was excellent and went back into the mock store and asked-- and advised me that I could take the cami to a b&m and have them send it to the tailor they use-- but I am not into the idea of having to alter it to make it look like the catalog. Given that it is FS-- he did note on the file that I can return it, given it did not come as pictured.
Overall, while it is beautiful, my expectations fell short and I am going to say it is a pass for me.... Curious if anyone else got it ......
