Hope all of you are enjoying a fun “end-to-summer weekend!” I wanted to express some confusion about one of the garments on the Would You Wear It display yesterday.
“A ruana (possibly from Spanish ruana “ragged” or Quechua ruana “textile”) is a poncho-style outer garment native to the Colombian and Venezuelan Andes.” I am accustomed to finding them in the style of a wrap or large scarf.
This top is not like a poncho or large scarf or cape. It was more like a long tunic shirt jacket. I agree with most of you from yesterday’s post, in that I do not really care for the print. For me, it is the flowers mixed with the animal print that I personally do not care for.
However, I do like the fit and style of the long shirt and would perhaps wear this if it was a solid color and not a print.
I just wanted to call attention to the description. We need to be careful with descriptions when purchasing on line in order to receive what we think we are receiving. Anyone believing this to be a traditional ruana…would be disappointed.
Does anyone else know why this might be called a ruana…I am open to learning something new!
LABOR DAY SALES STILL ON!
Almost every clothing retailer has clearance marked way down, and special savings on new collections. Here are the links again that many of you have requested and thanks so much for shopping with them. I will be here tomorrow for Reality Check Monday…with a health update and a little frustration…but despite it all,
JUST A NOTE:
There are several ways that I generate income through this blog in order to cover business expenses and give myself much needed income. Purchases through the slideshow links is one way, ads on the page is one way and a new way is through ordering or re-ordering Juice Plus+ whole food capsules. Please read my story and information HERE.
ADD SOME APPLE CIDER!
Another way is through ordering or re-ordering the GOLI Apple Cider Vinegar gummies through me with my GOLI LINK HERE. Again, if you are not familiar with the benefits of apple cider vinegar, you should speak with your personal physician. My husband and I are sold on the benefits and I am proud to represent this product. I am going to leave this at the bottom of my posts so that when you, friends or family would like to order you can use my link. Thanks for the support. This is a great product; as well as, the ones below!
