Is there anything better than getting contacted by companies to review their products, especially when that company happens to be creating environmentally conscious clothing? That's exactly what the people beyond Supezas are doing by using the finest organic grown handwoven cotton to fashion their classic designs. Now I'll be the first to admit that when it comes to the "green" trend I am late to the game. I mean, heck, I still shop at Forever 21 the ultimate fast fashion/anti-ethics chain around, but as I grow older I am trying to evolve into a more earth friendly lady, which is why I jumped at the chance to review this lovely blue blouse from Supezas. Before donning this top I got the chance to design a few elements of it starting with the fabric (blue brings out my eyes) then collar type (peter pan style for me cause who wouldn't?) then moved on to the sleeves (its cold out so long sleeves won out) and ending with buttons (if hearts are an option, I'm always going for it). Before finalizing this baby I naturally had to choose my size and since I'm a pretty standard size small I went with one of their "single click best fits" as opposed to custom sizing (did I mention they do custom sizing cause they do). Since nothing at Supezas is pre-made, the wait time for your piece is a bit lengthier than most online realtors, but as your design comes together you get email updates that show the seamstresses hard at work crafting up your piece and what a pretty piece it is.

Now I have to be honest here cause that's what yall pay me for right (wait I dont get paid for this, dam), so let's get down to business. The company packaging is lovely, the handwritten letters from the workers are a stellar touch, and my overall experience was top notch. BUT (I hate when there's a but) I was not as pleased with my blouse as I had hoped, in particular the sleeves were way too full resulting in my husband calling me the blue pirate all day and necessitating the above cardigan. I do not feel as though this was a sizing issue, but rather a design issue and while some may like the puffy sleeve look, I personally prefer a streamlined classic sleeve on my button downs. Its a personal taste matter, but had to be noted since well that's the whole point of a review. Despite the pirate sleeves, I am giving Supezas three out of five stars for their forward thinking, environmentally friendly stance, and clever use of allowing their customers to partake in the design of their clothing. With a little tweaking, this company has the potential to be a leader in the "green" fashion market so give them a go. The earth will thank you.
