Barbara Lesser Review



I love clothes. I wish I had the storage for them all, but pretty much anytime I get something new, something old HAS to go! Our closet is so chock full of stuff we can't move in there and our clothes are so cramped together. 

So when I had the opportunity to review for Barbara Lesser first I started thinking of what HAD to go. But then I realized that I had just donated clothes without getting something new, so I was okay!! 
They sent me the Zip It Or Not  in black and the The Boyfriend Jean I ordered a 4 as that is my normal size! 
 Well the pants were big. Not too big, but big enough that a belt won't help! I was so upset as I was really looking forward to reviewing these! Also the Jacket zipper was broken. I unzipped it, put it on and zipped it back up and then unzipped it and took it off. I then couldn't get it to zip back up. IT REFUSED!
So I contacted Barbara Lesser and they were so nice about it. They were willing to replace the items and were so sweet. They sent me another Zip It Or Not, which is PERFECT, No zipper issues at all. And they were out of the Boyfriend Jean in a 2 :( so instead sent me the Cruiser Boot Leg jean in a 2. It's perfect. I wish I could wear those Boyfriend's, but instead I gave them to my soon to be Sister In Law and she's VERY happy with them. She says she can't wait to wear them come spring!

Barbara Lesser launched a highly successful fashion line based on her own desire to look good yet remain comfortable during her hectic life. From the beach, to the party, to the office, Barbara wants exactly what her customer has come to expect – a look that's fresh, casual, on trend, and fits like it was meant to be.
Barbara creates truly unique garments, working with local artisans and utilizing hand dye techniques to produce amazing color blends on T-shirts, dresses, pants and skirts. Most of the collection is made in California, defining the Lessers as strong supporters of the "made in U.S.A." ideal. Barbara says that lifestyle, as well as fashion trends and exciting colors, play a large role in affecting her design decisions.


Price: I think these are a little overpriced. The Zip It Or Not is $96. The Boyfriend Jean are $140. and the Cruiser Bootleg are $129. I have never owned an article of clothing so expensive. And I think they are pricey, but they are GREAT quality and I think that's what you're paying for!

Overall: *** 1/2! I think they are a little pricey, but for great quality an fantastic customer service. I have to say I'm pretty pleased!
The extra * and a 1/2 is for the Price!! Other than that I would rate a 5 star!



*Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*

It is our great pleasure to introduce ourselves in the most colorful world of batik designing. We are a batik, Hand bag, sandals and Garment manufacturer specialize in sarong for beachwear and mini skirt in hand painting, hand print, hand stamp and tie dye. We have been in this field since 1994 and since then we are trying to add new concepts of designs in batik industries in local as well as export market in order to fulfill customers' satisfaction. Mostly, our products are made of two kinds quality of 100% rayon fabrics, those are 80/ 60 rayon construction ( thicker than the second one) and 72/ 42 rayon construction. The reason of using rayon fabric is considered by the quality that is match for beachwear. They are light silky and can be sticky wrap to human body, providing the sensual look and feel. However, we can provide other material such as cotton and silk to meet your satisfaction.
