    Promising review: "This shirt is throughout a very supple suede, it truly looks and feel like a $150 blouse. That price is amazing!! The fit has a nice line, but is not tight at all. The lavender color is especially beautiful. It's so soft, it's more lightweight that a heavy typical suede. It has a unique, upscale look.
