The Cinthia Classic Miche Shell is a block or more shell from my point of view. It looks real cute from far away, but when I get closer to it, I don’t like it quite as much.
This shell reminds me of the Donna shell that I reviewed not too long ago, but I would definitely rate this one higher due to the metallic finish on the shell and the diagonal ruffle makes it note quite as boring.
I think the reason I don’t like this shell as much close up is it looks cheap. The ruffle does not have any type of finishing stitch on the edges which makes it look like it’s slapped together. Since I already have a silver shell, I think this one is going to be shoved to the bottom of the list for now.
While this shell is silver and neutral in tone, I wouldn’t recommend it as an every day shell due to the metallic finish. The color makes it more of a special shell that I’m thinking you would want to use as a conversation starter. If you use a shell everyday, you lose the “wow” factor that would start a conversation.
I would recommend using this shell with a little black dress or a black pantsuit. Of course, it would go great with any bright colors as well. I would avoid pairing this shell with gray as it would be way too much and people may think you are a rain cloud coming to rain on their parade.
Overall, this isn’t a tragic shell and if there was just a little more though put into the ruffles, I would like it even more. If you are looking for a silver shell to add to your collection, the Cinthia shell may be right for you.
