Did you know?
Silk: Is known for its softness and comfort and beautiful draping and lustre. A natural fibre, it dyes easily and so is especially known for its vibrant hues. While luxurious and soft, it is very strong and because it is absorbent it is warm to wear in the winter as well as cool in the summer. Depending on how it's been treated, it may need to be dry cleaned, hand washed, or could be machine washable so please read the care instructions.
Linen: Is a natural fibre and is super breathable making it especially cool and comfortable to wear in the heat. It's very durable and is twice as strong as cotton, it isn't stretchy and tailors well but creases easily.
Crêpe: is often referred to as a crimped and crisp fabric which is distinguished by its matt, grainy surface. It is best known as crepe georgette or crepe marocain; both variations are distinguished by their fluid drape and opaque appearance.

I have several Grizas tops that I adore and this is a style I have bought successfully before (I have this balloon style in linen, jersey and silk/cotton mixes from Navabi). I haven't returned this ...... but I have left the tags on while I think about it because it wasn't cheap. On the plus side, it is linen & silk (so luxe!) and the crinkle weave allows some give which adds comfort in wear and looks pretty. On the minus side, the cut isn't quite right. It is slightly tight over the bust (even buying a size up & wearing a minimiser bra) and it sticks out over the hips, making them look inches wider - unlike my other balloon style tops. I can put up with that (how often do you stand still for anyone to notice?) but the thing I dislike most is the colour. In the picture, it looks a beautiful grey-blue. In real life, it looks unpleasantly faded and shabby - as if it has sat in a shop window for 12 months. I am wondering if I should keep it and attempt to redye it (because I like the fabric and being so plain, I can really dress it up - if I can remove the worn out vibe!). It is disappointing that it doesn't look either professional or glamorous in real life, unlike the photos.

I returned this dress. I ordered two sizes & this one was too large..
I love the dress ... I am a size 18 & bought the 18/20 which fits perfectly ... it is very light & comfortable to wear. Very happy.
