I’m on day 11 of my 100 day dress challenge. I’m nursing my 9 week old baby and it’s the perfect dress for nursing and snuggling and staying warm without overheating. It’s possibly the most convenient thing I’ve ever worn postpartum. Typically during early postpartum, I feel sloppy, but I feel beautiful in this dress. I’ve nicknamed it the “100 days of snuggles” dress.
The fabric has a lovely soft feel and weight. (Comparing to Willow which I’m wearing underneath in the photo.) It is silkier and slightly heavier than willow with a nice drape.
The pacific color is the nicest teal-green blue color. For me, the cross front definitely requires a crop top or something beneath as I have a small, thin frame. This is a great dress for nursing, postpartum body size fluctuations, and feels like it could easily be dressed up or down. I am very happy with this dress.
I have been interested in adding some wool staples for everyday wear to my wardrobe for some time. I took the plunge and purchased the Brooklyn wrap dress in practical black. Fabric is lovely and feels fantastic. I purchased the XL (normally wear a L but was concerned about the waste (items often are tight wasted for me). It's a very forgiving cut so no biggie if you order up a size. I like clothes with room so this was beautiful. The sleeves are loose so you could easily layer sleeves underneath. I would wear this as a short dress (I ordered long) with or without leggings. I think the price point was an excellent value for the quality. The item was not made in China which matters to me. The only thing that would have made it absolutely perfect would have been pockets (although I'm not sure I'd want to pay up much for them). I do not know yet how the item will withstand the test of time but I'm pretty confident it will. I will definitely be ordering another item. Thanks!
Beautiful Pacific color! Very versatile, can be worn alone or layered. I felt I could have picked either the L or XL size, depending on the fit I preferred.
This dress was a staple in my carry on for my month long trip. I typically wore it with the V In the back because I felt I was showing too much cleavage when it was in the front. I wore this multiple times in the heat with zero smell even after wearing it multiple times before washing. It was so flattering to my plus sized figure! It doesn’t have pockets, but I still loved it. Get this dress! I ordered the black. I feel it runs big and you can order a size down.
