A Fashionista’s Confession > J, 21

Simply Essential Top
Black

I was excited prior to the actual launch but to miss it. I had very much set my mind on purchasing the Simply Essential Top in White and Black, but by the time I got to the launch, the top in White was all pending and there was no backorder, to my disappointment. Nevertheless, I checked out one of the Simply Essential Top in Black.

I was totally amazed by the quality and cut of this top! Though at a very affordable price of $23 (including local postage), the quality and material used was not at all compromised! Even my boyfriend, who always nags at me for spending too much money on shopping, commented that this is, no doubt, a value buy!

With just a pair of shorts and wedges, I’m good to go! Throw a chunky necklace and some bracelets, I’m more than ready to paint the town red! By the way, I also think it looks just as great when paired with a highwaisted skirt and blazer for work.

I have to really take my hat off Hollyhoque, for constantly improving to meet our needs and demands so meticulously! Thank you, Hollyhoque, for everything thus far, and I look forward to seeing more unique basic clothings from you!
