Kiyonna’s Saturday Front Tie Bellini: A Review

Recently I have the pleasure of trying on one of Kiyonna’s best sellers: the Saturday Front Tie Bellini. The great people at Kiyonna sent over a very well presented package to me, and I must say once I tried on the Bellini I knew why this item is one of their best sellers… it is truly flattering. I honestly was not expecting being so excited about a ‘cardigan’ type garment, but this thing truly rocks. I must get it in all colors… but I digress.

Back to the details. The Saturday Front Tie Bellini is made of a lightweight fabric, which is a mixture of Rayon and Spandex, which is very silky and soft to the touch. The font-tie site exactly below the bust-line, helping to create a very figure flattering look.

Besides the Bellini feeling very nice to the touch, it pretty much goes with everything, which is another definite plus. If you need an item in your closet to help you with layering, this is definitely one item to consider as it is very versatile. It comes in four different colors, including sage, black and purple, however the one I tried on is grey. I tried on the Bellini with a skirt, cropped jeans and jeggings… and with all 3 items I think it looked great. I received a couple of compliments when I first wore this, so definitely a winner in my books.

Check out some photos below, of me wearing the Bellini. Also watch out for a video coming up soon as well, showing you the actual Bellini!

Thanks Kiyonna… this is definitely a keeper, and I am very tempted to get in other colors!
