    “Keep calm and carry on” 🙂 I really like that, stressing out only makes things worse. Thanks for posting this Susanne.

  • Debbie

    What I don’t understand, is why does a catalog that specifically carries clothing for taller women, not carry shoes in extended sizes. Very frustrating!

  • Bonnie

    Just recieved my Go-to tunic, tired it on and can’t take it off. What soft, wonderful material!!!! It feels so good that I don’t want to take it off, WOW!! Love also the sheer black skirt I ordered, wore it to church Sunday and got alot of compliments. Can’t wait till the red skirt I ordered arrives. Love ALL of your clothes line. I come home from work and change into a Soft Surroundings outfit because I feel like softness is surrounding my tired body, Thank You, your’e a great company.
