Everlane Street Shoe | gift from Everlane to review
I got this organic cotton sweatshirt dress by Kowtow a little while ago when Beklina was offering 50% off Kowtow (I hope you were paying attention and got some too!). I also got this cardigan, but it’s been more difficult to incorporate into my wardrobe for some reason. More on that later.
This sweatshirt dress will replace two James Perse sweatshirt dresses I really never wore much (I will be putting this one up for sale in the shop soon). This dress has pockets, which are really essential for me, if I’m being honest. I spend so much time at home, and then run out for errands or whatever, I need things that I can wear all the time, which demands pockets for taking Dagny out for a quick walk (I have to take treats, bag, phone, keys…).
It’s incredibly comfortable, and easy to throw on and go. I would definitely NOT try and dress it up, this dress is absolutely casual, and goes better with sandals or sneakers. The slightly tapered in waist gives it a subtle shape, and the length is great for me, coming right below my knees (above my knees might be more flattering, but makes things much less wearable for me, because I don’t feel as comfortable showing my knees).
I’ve worn it quite a few times since I got it, and am always so pleased with it when I wear it. The only downside is that since it’s sweatshirt-y, it does stretch a little, not keeping it’s streamlined shape for very long, but these pictures are after a day of wear, and it still looks nice IMO. The James Perse sweatshirt dress stretched out a LOT more and looked quite messy after wear.
After this, I’m a Kowtow devotee, and look forward to adding many more pieces to my wardrobe as I need to replace things with more sustainable fabrics. I’ve got my eye on this dress for spring…
