Earlier in July Lilikoi Clothing had a 50% off sale and I took that as an opportunity to get myself some things I`d been missing from my wardrobe. Most of these are for fall weather, but why not? I didn`t want to wait until the clearance sales on Boxing Day. So here`s a review of what I ordered from Lilikoi Clothing.

Bullet points about Lilikoi Clothing:

* The word lilikoi means passion fruit in Hawaii.

* Operates out of an office in Nelson, BC, Canada

* Ethical: All cutting, printing, sewing, and design work is done by local Canadian employees who are well paid for their skill.

* Sustainable: Uses sustainable fibres such as bamboo and organically grown cotton and linen wherever possible. Takes care in choosing fabrics and suppliers

Georgia Dolman Sleeved Top

Materials: Viscose from Bamboo/Organic cotton/Spandex blend

Color: Teal (Also available in: Gray, Black, Plum Navy)

This is a nice basic long sleeve top. It`s light enough to be worn alone in 15C weather with pants and when winter comes around I will layer it will a blazer on top. I work in an office so yeah, we have to look spiffy. The feel of the material is nice. It`s smooth against the skin. I don`t know about you but I can`t stand wearing scratchy clothing. It drapes nicely too. The thing about Dolman sleeves is that sometimes they can look too baggy. But Lilikoi has a nice balance here with the sleeves. They are neither too full nor too tight. My one and only complaint about this top is that the neckline is a tad low on me, being of petite height.

Loralei Draped Pullover

Materials: Viscose from Bamboo/Organic cotton/Spandex blend

Color: Plum

Ummm. This was a bit of an impulse buy. It looked great on the website. But when I put it on it makes me look five times bigger than I really am. The draping in the front isn`t slimming in any way. It looks fine on the dolly in the picture. I needed a smaller size. It would have been nice if there were fit details in the description. For example: fit is drapey and relaxed. Size down for a sleeker look. Anyway, I decided not to return itand just keep this for at home wear. I think this item is sold out because I can`t find it on the site anymore, hence no link to it.

Elisa Top

Materials: Viscose from Bamboo/Organic cotton/Spandex blend

Color: Dahlia (Also available in: Black, Teal Grey)

This top is basically the same styleand shape as the Georgia Dolman Sleeve Top but it has a printed design on the side. Same comments as the Georgia Top. I like the print on the side of this shirt. It`s made in the same fabric weight as the Georgia Dolman Sleeve so it can be worn alone or easily layered with in colder weather. Dahlia is a nice mauve-pinkish colour which looks good on my skin tone. Here`s an instagram pic of me wearing the top, below.

Cost: $79.00 CAD

Amelie Shrug

Materials: Viscose from Bamboo/Organic cotton/Spandex blend

Color: Fuchsia (Also available in: Black, Teal, Grey, Navyand Plum)

This shrug is great for pairing with dresses where you want a pop of colour. The shrug`s material feels nice against the skinand covers the shouldersand arms. This is perfect for me to use at the officeand keeps me warm enough when the AC is blasting away. I`ve pictured it above with my Annie 50 dress which I bought from Fresh Collective years ago.
