First off, I just want to say please excuse these crappy photos of the crystal-clear lake behind me but of blurry me. I just like the lake scene behind me so much (and am a lazy blogger and don't want to reshoot these outfit photos, lol). As you can tell, this was taken back when I was still on my road trip. This probably doesn't look like the best outfit for lake-side glamping, but we were actually on our way to do some wine-tasting (and I threw on the Grana silk blazer later, which I reviewed here).
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Grana recently changed their silk so that they no longer do double silk (boo) so I'm not planning to review too many more new silk items. But I ordered this along with the silk flat front pants to get an idea of their new silk selections. And I have to say I don't hate this silk tee. In fact, I think it's one of my favorite silk tees I've ever tried (and let me qualify this by saying I don't actually try out a whole lot of silk tees because really it's not my thing. I prefer all my tees to be cotton). What do you think?
I'm wearing a small here and I really like the fit. It's loose but not oversized. What I love most about this tee is that the thicker georgette satin is on the top half while their 16mm crepe de chine is on the lower half of the tee. It's like color-blocking but instead it's really texture-blocking. The two different textures keeps the tee interesting, while at the same time the thicker satin on top keeps you from seeing the outline of your bra (which happens to me quite often with regular crepe de chine silk tops). And by keeping the crepe de chine on the bottom half of the tee, it drapes really well at the hips and you can easily tuck in the tee. I also really love the sleeve length and the fact it hides my flabby chicken wings (triceps) well.
I wasn't expecting to like any more of Grana's silk items since they changed it up, but I really do love this tee. For $65 it's a bit pricey but it's also 100% silk so that's understandable.
