Reducing my "Footprint" with the 5oo4 Easy Tee Dress in Wool
I don't know if any of you have had this experience, but I have had a bunch of wool dresses in my facebook feed lately. There is a particular company that will give you $100 if you wear their dress for 100 days straight. I know that may sound a little "gimmicky," but it is based around the idea that wool is super-breathable (and so appropriate in both winter and summer), and it doesn't pick up odors the way that synthetic fibers do. So theoretically, you could wear it for multiple days without washing it. Anyway, on this particular company's website, they show you various ways to wear their dresses: with a t-shirt over them, with a t-shirt under them, with a scarf, with leggings, etc. This photoshoot was my attempt to emulate that idea, showing that 5oo4's Easy Tee Dress can be worn in quite a few different ways.
The pieces that I used for this capsule were the 5oo4 Easy Tee Dress in a jersey-knit wool with binding instead of bands, a RTW wool long-sleeve t-shirt, the 5oo4 Candy Leggings, and a 5oo4 Eleanor Cardigan. I absolutely love this dress! The fabric came from Levana Fabrics in New Zealand a couple years ago. I believe the color was called "raisin." But it goes with everything! Besides the garments here, I can wear it with almost all the things in my closet. And it's perfect for cooler weather as worn above. Or it's perfect for warmer weather without all the layers!
Here are the pattern links again:
I may not wear this one for 100 days straight, but it will certainly be in my rotation one or two times a week for the next while :)
