      One of my favorites

      This is one of my most often worn Zuris. It looks great in with jeans, linen pants, or just on its own. The turquoise/teal of the background is complimented by the dark blue and sunflower yellow of the flowers. It is both invigorating and soothing.

      Glorious!

      This dress is even prettier in person! Look at how vibrant! It pairs well with many colors, fits perfectly, and makes me smile. I’m 36/28/39, 137lbs, and the small looks tailored. I usually wear medium in other brands. I love wearing this as a duster as well, so joyful! Highly recommend!

      Another beautiful print!

      I didn’t buy this one right when it came out but after seeing it on others, I just had to have it. Such happy colors and the print is amazing. It’s so hard to not want them all.

      Calla (Best) Friend

      I reach for this particular Zuri most often, as I have yet to stop finding the pattern anything short of energizing. I see a definite element of Dr. Suess at play, as well as Renaissance drawings of flora. Perhaps most importantly, this dress is the favorite of my grandson & husband- they say it is "cheerful".

      Another winner!

      It's funny -when I saw this print, I loved it, as these are my favourite colours, but I kept seeing fish bones in the print! After thinking on it for a while I took the plunge, and when it arrived, it was the first time I hesitated with a Zuri dress -it reminded me of Balinese prints, which as a white woman living in Asia, made me worried I would look like a tourist. BUT when I showed my husband, he said he loved it, and it reminded him of the ocean, so he voted a stong KEEP. Now I honestly love wearing it, and it feels fresh and teal-y (whatever that means in my head) and I think it's actually maybe even my favourite. I reach for it on those warm sunday afternoons when I might pop out for a bit of lunch in the sunshine :) It's not too stiff, and the colours are perfect.

      Excuse the photo -not the best.
