Have You Looked At Soft Surroundings Recently?

I went to Soft Surroundings today to pick up a shirt I had ordered.

 

The new gauze line is very thick.  I saw a lot of polyester which I rarely buy.

 

I did see a scarf I liked.

Gauze is a summer fabric. Who wants it thick?!

As far as gauze pants, maybe the thick fabric is less see through. I do not like see through slacks .

I've shopped with them for years. The last half a dozen items I purchased were disappointing. Their quality has gone down, in my opinion, but the prices remain high. I read a lot of their reviews, something I usually didn't do, and find out a lot from them. I do shop their clearance items now and use them for "one season" clothing if something really catches my eye.

I just got another catalog from them.  Several things I like, but they are pricey.  What is their quality like?  Maybe I will splurge Smiley Happy

Absolutely agree, but this fabric is extremely thick.

I also have purchased from them for years and the last few years I have noticed very thin fabric and the quality is definitely not the same. Prices are high and especially for what they are.

This store is hard to gauge quality.  The polyester is polyester of course.  Some clothing is nice enough.  Their colors and findings (buttons, zippers, ect) are nice.

They have a pretty color palette. 

You don't pay SH if you call through the store and order.

When you pick up your order, there is a 20% off coupon for something else.

Nice special home items like candles, perfume.

 

I interviewed there but didn't go.  I can't tolerate jazz playing all day!  Beautiful store, though.

If you want summer weight gauze, shop "Oh My Gauze" on line or "B'Gauze" on line or in store in Scottsdale, Arizona. Both are excellent quality and great for vacations to warm places, or if you live in a warm place like I do in Arizona.Smiley Happy
