First of all, I just want to say please excuse the quality of the photos in this post. I had just gotten out of the hospital and was preparing for a big move so I didn’t really have time to style photos or even do makeup (thus the headless shots). I hope to be getting back to better quality photos soon. Anyway I had ordered this cashmere V-neck midi dress from Everlane back in November because I wanted a warm and stretchy dress. I sized up to a medium to accommodate the growing bump but I feel like I could have gotten away with the small (it just would have been more form fitting). Also because of the bump the midi length gets shortened a little to be just below the knees for me, which I think is a good length for this kind of dress. Without the bump, the dress would probably be more of a true midi length and thus make my legs look stumpier without heels (though the pointed flats of my favorite Everlane Boss Mules helps lengthen the leg a little).
So why is this post just a try-on and why didn’t I keep it? In the end I decided that the size was a tad too large and I wasn’t sure I would wear it post pregnancy. Also a dress like this has very limited layering options and it’s just too warm for California winters. If I got overheated in this I would just have to grin and bear it. So as much as I love the look and feel of this sweater dress, the prudent thing to do (especially if I’m trying to keep my closet minimal this year) was to send it back. This might be better for those who have to brave snowy winters and frigid temperatures.
Anyway that’s the last Everlane review for awhile since I’m on my one-purchase-a-month resolution now. But I still have some other reviews left from my last December purchases. Also moving away from the clothes-reviewing-posts has helped me come up with some future posts that I think you’ll find interesting and helpful (I hope), so stay tuned for those!
