I was looking for a light weight comforter to use everyday. This is perfect for that. It is very pretty with the small white piping on the edge. The color is as shown, a light lavender. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it didn't have to be dry cleaned and its hard to describe but when the comforter moves it has a slight crinkle sound. Almost as if there is a paper lining inside. Not much of a problem but just a note to those looking at this. Overall very happy with the purchase. Good value for the money.
