*I received this item free to review and thus this is a kind of sponsored post
So I have this one friend, Vickie (hi Vickie if you're reading this lol) who I consider to be the stylish one (you might see her corgi puppy on my Insta stories from time to time). She has a closet to die for and actually she's the one that put the idea of blogging into my head. Anyway I tell you this, because whenever Vickie notices one of the many items I review, I know it's a good one. She doesn't do it very often so whenever she does, it's a keeper. And well, she noticed this drapey v-neck tee from SiiZU.
This tee is 100% modal, which is a first for me. If you're not familiar with the material, it's made from beech fiber and it's eco-friendly since a lot of the chemicals used in the process can be recycled and reused. There's a super brief explanation here from SiiZU and a more comprehensive one here. Modal is considered a semi-synthetic. Most of my tees are 100% cotton so it's really nice to change it up with a tee that has some drapey-ness to it. The material is super soft but thin (in some pictures you can kind of see the outline of my bra). In this black color it's not really noticeable.
I'm wearing a size small here and it fits perfectly. I love the sleeve length and its slightly dolman shape. There was however a slight chemical smell to it when I first tried it on but went away with washing (make sure to machine wash cold and lay flat to dry).
March 2018 update: I have to admit I did not wear this tee after this review and this fell under the "worst" category in this blog post about the best and worst things I got for free to review. I will have to say, do not buy this tee unless you don't mind synthetic fabrics like modal.
