Here it is! The second item in Zady’s “essential collection”: the .02 organic cotton t-shirt; read more about the process and mission at Zady, and why organic cotton is important by watching The True Cost fashion documentary if you haven’t already (hint hint!!).
I received mine on Monday (Zady sent it to me to review) and I wore it all day yesterday with this Raquel Allegra skirt I got on sale at La Garconne. I got the skirt a week ago after searching for it on sale AFTER trying it on locally and falling in lust…I love it so much, and have worn it a couple other ways besides this one. I don’t love this t-shirt with it, but I wanted to wear the skirt yesterday AND the t-shirt, so here we go. I’ll post another outfit with the skirt this week, but if you’ve looked at it or thought about ordering it at all, do not hesitate while it’s on sale! I promise you won’t regret it…
About the t-shirt. I like it. I think it’s a great t-shirt for the money, especially that it’s organic cotton, made in the US. They really paid attention to detail on this, to make it different; not just a plain white t-shirt, you know? But for me, there might be too many details. I’d love it more if the sleeves were shorter (I do not like the rolled sleeves that are everywhere lately!), the pocket were gone, and it was more fitted/shorter. I am a huge fan of the baseball hem, and that it’s longer in the back, but it’s just all a bit too much on me. For my style/size/body shape anyway. And I’m not sure sizing down would work, because as you can tell, it’s already rather fitted at my hips.
If you’re a straighter body -type and like t-shirts with longer sleeves and a longer hemline, then this may be your perfect white t-shirt. It’s a wonderful soft cotton, not so white it’s blinding (which is good…) and a great roomy fit in the top. I will absolutely wear this often – it will look much better with my skinny jeans – but it’s not necessarily my HG white t-shirt.
Who else ordered the Zady .02 organic cotton t-shirt? What do you think about it?
