The Perfect LBD

Hi there! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been on board and it feels so good to be writing again.  It truly does. For the last few weeks I’ve been wanting to share with you some of my fun finds, especially from the Everlane E2 Capsule collection that they put out a couple months ago. The E2 collection is comprised of several stylish pieces, from pants to tops, to shoes to dresses that are meant to be mixed and matched. The appeal to me was the black and white colors and the simplicity of the clothes. The styles are bold and fun yet also border on classic and are all very well tailored.  For today’s post I’m spotlighting the ribbed tank dress from the E2 collection.  This dress has become one of my favorites for the following reason: it fits like a glove without feeling uncomfortable.  In fact, it’s so comfortable and easy to move in (think: dancing, partying, sitting…you get the picture…)  Also, the ribbed dress just feels well made; the material has the right amount of stretch and hugs the body in all the right places. I love how this dress can be dressed up with the right accessories…big bold earrings and a bright scarf, or dressed down with a pair of Keds and a beanie.  I wore it to my boyfriend’s office holiday party earlier this month and I was able to have fun, eat, drink and mingle without worrying about the dress riding up or any of those “issues” that we ladies sometimes have when it comes to party clothes.  On me, the dress hits just below the knee (I’m 5’5″ for reference), and the size Small fits me perfectly.  I’m usually a size 4 in dresses, size 27 in jeans/pants, and I usually get a size Medium in Everlane tops.  But for this dress, the size Small fit me just right.

The price of the dress, a cool $98, is also quite reasonable, for all the mileage I’m going to get from it!
