I would be remiss if I didn’t chime in quickly to let you know that my favorite OAK NYC side pleat maxi dress is back in stock in black at Shopbop (in all sizes except large). I’m wearing a medium and wouldn’t recommend sizing down/up at all – take your “true” size. It’s oversized in places, but straight from the hips to the bottom hem, so it still maintains some shape. The black version is 100% cotton and made in the US.
I HIGHLY recommend this dress. I’ve had it for more than a year and wear it a lot. In fact, I almost lived in it last week. It’s great for lounging around, but also for being “out” in a casual setting. I wash/dry mine and haven’t had any problems with it AT all.
Get it if you’ve been wanting it! This dress sells out fast…** while I was writing this post a Large popped back in stock (someone must have let their cart expire)!
