Novella Royale is the culmination of two things; a considerate design ideology and the raw vision of its founder/designer, Mary Myers. Mary is a salt of the earth, third generation seamstress who cut her teeth designing accessories for larger fashion manufacturers. While grateful for the opportunities presented to her, she could not ignore the nagging desire to take charge of her own destiny. She decided to couple her reduce, re-use, recycle design philosophy with her fate and took the plunge, jumping headlong into the creation of her own brand which she named after her young daughter, Novella Royale.
I am not a skinny girl! I am 5'5" 138lbs with hips and a big butt lol but I am small at the top with a small waist, I was initially afraid to make the purchase because of previous reviews stating this was more for thin and slender girls, glad I purchased anyway I got a large which fits perfectly on the bottom and the top fits well as I am able to tighten the straps to fit. Fabric is light and beautiful colors, can't wait to wear this to Hawaii next month?
