The shirt is a beautiful color and well made - love it!
These folks are some of the few these days who still remember what good customer service is all about. From the item descriptions, size guides and fitting suggestions to their clear and frequent communications before, during and after the sale, everyone was simply top notch. Plus they added thoughtful touches, like fabric care and washing guides for their products. And that's just the service. The silk blouse I ordered fit my wife just perfectly (thanks to following their clear and helpful suggestions) and it instantly became a favorite of hers....and mine! The color and fabric are extremely sensuous and the shirt looks absolutely fabulous on her. I will certainly be coming back to CAMIXA again and again!
I received my shirt quickly after ordering it, and have already worn it to rave reviews! Giada was super helpful in making sure the fit was correct since it was an international order and final sale discounted item. That bit of extra customer service mattered to me, and I wouldn't hesitate to order again. The fabric is superb and the workmanship/details are top notch. Great product matched by great service!
This is the second blouse I received this week from Camixa. The silk is beautiful. I have been looking for a white silk blouse in brick and mortar stores for awhile and was not willing to spend $250+ for a blouse to wear casually with jeans. It is also beautifully crafted with details such as fully finished seams. Like the linen/cotton blouse I just received it loses a star for fit. I was looking for a slouchy, casual look and thought ordering the XL would do it based on Camixa's size chart. Instead both blouses fit very well and give a more tailored look - and for reference I'm a 10/12 in clothes. Last night I ordered a 3rd blouse from them in an XXL and if it gives me the looser fit I'm looking for I may exchange the silk blouse for the larger size. But don't let the sizing issues many have had deter you from buying these - the quality is excellent in fabric and construction.
This blouse will swing from very casual if worn as pictured, or to the office or dinner. Tail is long in front and back, cut up on the sides a bit higher than other shirts I have. If you have large saddlebags or are trying to conceal very wide hips, choose another. I'm pretty much a large and their large was a little snug all around, but especially across the shoulders. I sized up because I prefer a roomier feel, and the XL was fine, but definitely roomy on top. The fabric is almost cottony feeling, rather than silky but I like to pop my collars and the firmness of the fabric will make that work just fine. I think this will stay in the closet as a good basic for a while.
This shirt is amazing. the quality. the fit. Its exactly as pictured in terms of color and fabric. I am returning it for a Large only because I like the loose, boyfriend fit. And Ill get a linen shirt for travel while Im at it! If you are questioning it - do it. You won't regret it. This is one of my favorite online purchase. And yeah for women designers doing their thing. Keep it up.
The sizing(not too tight) but still flattering is great. I really enjoy wearing them when I visit warm climates in the the US and during the summer where I live. The price is also great for the linen blends. Thanks
The material is great. (It even looks fine un-ironed lol). The fit is a bit looser than I anticipated especially around the shoulder area but that's because I ordered larger thinking the material might shrink (it doesn't). I'm 34D and ordered XXL and there is so much room. I think an XL would have been better. But it's ultimately very comfortable and you can easily dress up or down. I highly recommend it and I'll get some more in different colors.
This blouse was the perfect layer and fit for the look and comfort I wanted to complete an outfit for plane travel to France a couple months ago. I washed it very carefully and tumble dried it slightly, but there was a bit of shrinkage. DO NOT EVEN CAREFULLY TUMBLE DRY IT. I liked the comfort and classy look and feel of the blouse so much that I bought another once recently in a different color. This time I received thorough instructions not to tumble dry it at all. Just hang it after washing. I like to iron these shirts for a neater appearance and they iron very easily, look great, and stay looking great.
The fabric in this shirt is really luscious. Heavy, not sheer -- the collar stands nicely. I found the sizing a bit odd, as a size 10 - 12 I ordered an XXL. It didn't matter, except for my oh so fragile ego, since it fit. The stripes are just the right proportion -- I'm looking forward to wearing this to thanksgiving, w/ an Eileen Fisher jacket. Crisp, crisp, crisp blouse!
