For my review, I received a Tina Shrug in the red medley color.
The Tina Shrug is beautiful! The material is soft and has a real luxurious feeling. The knit pattern is eye-catching. While taking my daughter to and from school, I was stopped a few times and asked about my Tina Shrug. The moms said that the knit pattern on the back is what caught their attention.
I started off wearing my Tina Shrug over a white v-neck long-sleeved t-shirt with jeans and booties. However, I will still a little cold and felt like I was missing something. I decided to add a brown sweater to the outfit. I liked the color combination of the red medley against the milk-chocolate brown. This outfit was casual and comfortable, perfect for a cold and rainy day in Oregon.
It is suggested that the Tina Shrug be hand washed or dry cleaned. I hadn’t read this information when I laundered mine. Without knowing, I washed mine in the washer on cold and delicate; it came out just fine. Next time I will hand wash it though.
