Just a little random-ness for your Tuesday:
Upon recommendation of a few of you I bought The Laundress stain solution last week to use on a few things with stains (haha!) and I swear, it is MAGIC. It worked well on my Black Crane top, on silk, a chocolate stain I got on my beloved WHITE JP tee…magic. The bottle seems like it will last quite a while also, although I think I’d like to purchase a fabric brush or something to work the solution into stains a little better, and not use my fingers.
I do also use The Laundress delicate wash, wool & cashmere shampoo, AND a while ago I bought the signature detergent in Le Labo Santal 33 scent with some credits from Garmentory (sold out there), and I am now addicted. I can’t afford to keep buying the Le Labo detergent, so I’m using it sparingly, but man…I love it. I love all the detergents. I think the delicates wash is absolutely worth it for silks and underthings, a little goes a long way, and I feel better using it than “regular” detergent. And no dry cleaning.
Speaking of silk, and dry cleaning, Zady is offering an extra 20% off their sale items until Labor Day with code CHECKEDOUT and I’m thinking of finally ordering their silk shirtdress. I love that it’s made from “peace” silk, which means that the silk worms weren’t harmed and it’s made without the use of pesticides.
I also highly recommend the alpaca sweater, which is on sale now for $103. I didn’t love the style at first, I thought it could have been a little more modern, but I wore it a TON last winter and into spring; it’s warmer than it looks, and softens up really nicely. I also love the linen sweater, which is on sale for $89 with the code, and this cotton pullover.
Do you have any of the Zady pieces? anyone have the silk dress?? What do you think?
