I totally wasn’t expecting this to arrive so quickly, but wow. Interestingly enough, this dress arrived on Saturday while I was hosting the Elizabeth Suzann meet-up at my house! How crazy is that? Yeah, I know, not so much, but I thought it was cool 🙂
Anyway, as I do, I wore the dress the rest of the day Saturday, all day Sunday (at home) and am wearing it again now. It’s unbelievably comfortable, and I love how it just “fits in” with whatever it is I happen to be doing. It stretches nicely, but seems to bounce back also, not stretching out completely and loosing shape. The small is definitely the right size for me, but does “stick” a little to my ample behind LOL. The armholes are perfection, as is the fit up top, which is something I can hardly ever say.
I prefer to wear it with the crewneck in the front, but it does “feel” different when I wear it that way. Not uncomfortable, but like I’m wearing it the wrong way, you know? The neckline itself isn’t constricting, in that it’s choking me when I sit or whatever, it’s just that I feel it on my chest. This is only really noticeable when I first put it on, and then I forget about it the rest of the day.
The cotton is mid-to-heavy-weight and I wouldn’t want to wear it when it’s 100+ degrees here, but I don’t find it uncomfortable at 90 degrees. I think it will be even better at 60 or 70 with my woven kimono on top, or with a light sweater.
Oh, yeah, and I LOVE the color!!
Overall I’m incredibly impressed, and thing the price point is very fair given that it’s handmade from organic cotton. I would absolutely buy a second dress in black if it comes back in stock. (I did order the Ochre at first, but didn’t like the color on my skintone).
There are still quite a few pieces in the ES X AC collaboration left to order! Did anyone else order and receive anything yet? What do you think??
OH!! The meet up was so amazing – I loved meeting other ladies MORE in love with ES than I am. I did get to try on the Mara jumpsuit in linen, in the medium, tall, and LOVED IT. I would probably order the small, regular length for myself though, the medium was very large up top on me. I might consider the tall inseam though, since for a jumpsuit, it’s really important to get th rise right…don’t want to be uncomfortable sitting!! I also loved the cotton canvas andy trousers in medium, regular length – in the clay color. I may get those instead of the clyde culottes for fall.
