I’ve received quite a few bamboo pieces to review (scroll down for more reviews) this Eco-Month on Grechen’s Closet, but Lizzie Parker’s are definitely the most “fashion-forward” and unique of the bunch.
The “Short Twiggy” in “hotpants” has been getting me through the weekends, and walks with the dog. And it “dresses-up” quite nicely as well:
I love it tucked into to this high-waist skirt from American Apparel (more outfit details here) – it gives it a more “styled” look than they way I usually wear it – with my Splendid lounge pants or jeans. This top is made from 95% bamboo and 5% lycra, so it holds it’s shape exceptionally well, is really flattering on, and so soft and comfortable.
The “mtv” shirt is also really fun to wear:
It’s difficult to see from this picture, but it’s banded around the bottom, so it HOLDS everything in…seriously…and drapes out a bit in front. I have to wear a tank top underneath because the armholes are large, but I think this would be a great swimsuit coverup as well – if you size up so it hangs a bit lower. Again, this is made from 95% bamboo and 5% lycra. (outfit details)
Another Lizzie Parker staple in my wardrobe is this simple tank:
Although it’s really not so simple…It’s not available anywhere online, and I don’t have a more detailed picture, but it’s a racerback style, with thick hems and an extra-long style. It’s snug, so it’s super-easy to layer with; I also love to wear it with my Organic Cotton cardigan by SPUN, as well as under dresses. (outfit details)
