    Love this!

    First short sleeved shirt, intentionally bought a bigger shirt so I could have it tailored to have a more close fitting look. I love wearing this shirt post adjustment. Super comfortable to wear & can be dressed up or dressed down depending on my mood.

    Love the short sleeved shirts!

    Not my usual colours but the shirt did not disappoint when it arrived. Love the orange and it’ll be fun to come up with some outfits for this shirt.

    Striking Sillystring

    Wow! 🤩This is my 3rd short sleeve Zuri and love it. Brown, beige, black and bright terracotta make this pattern wearable either casually or formally. I received nothing but compliments- which is always the norm in any Zuri garment. I am in love. 🥰

    A gift awaiting a recipient!

    I purchased this for my daughter-in-law but she has been out of the city since it arrived. She will receive my gift as soon as she returns. It may be a bit large on her but we will see. From my perspective, it is absolutely stunning. I will let you know if she needs a smaller version. I always appreciate Zuri follow u.

    Have a nice holiday weekend.
