Every so often, we stumble upon little treasures that we never knew were in our own backyard. These treasures are so great that you almost feel bad that you didn’t know they had been there all along. That’s how I felt when I first learned about Caite, Inc. This awesome company is practically right in my backyard in Tampa.
Caite, Inc. is a women’s apparel line headquartered in Tampa. The company has found tremendous success within the last 5 years with their signature product lines. Their products can be seen in catalogs and online sites, such as Soft Surroundings and ModCloth, and over 1500 specialty stores nationwide. Caite, Inc. has gained notoriety, especially on their original embroidered collection both in knits and wovens.
The company’s “Caite” line features their signature knit fabric, rayon lycra, which is the most flattering and buttery soft fabric! When it is embroidered with their beautiful artwork, each piece becomes a piece of art itself! The “Kyla Seo” collection boasts colorfully embroidered and silky wovens, along with many unique and affordable prints. Each piece is cleverly designed for a comfortable, yet fabulously feminine look!
I had the hardest time choosing an item to review because all of the pieces are so beautiful, but I finally settled upon the “Abby” tunic in ivory from the Kyla Seo collection. When I first opened the package out of the mail, I fell in love with the way the tunic felt. The silky fabric is incredibly soft. I almost wanted to just wrap myself up in it! I LOVE the print, the fit is great (I’m 5’10” and 130 lbs., wearing a size small), and the black tassels add such a fashionable flair to the garment. Since it has been a little chilly in Tampa, I threw on a cami underneath the tunic and wore a cape over it. I love how the wide yellow borders showed past the cape sleeves. Take a look at my photos below. If you love this top as much as I do, be sure to check it out along with many other beautiful, comfy pieces on the Caite website.
