        • Made from 88% MicroModal® | 12% Lycra Knit in Toronto, Canada

          Made from our buttery soft, eco-friendly MicroModal fabric. Our MicroModal fabric is knit, and dyed in Toronto, Canada at a family-run knitting mill. MicroModal is a renewably sourced, naturally derived fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp. Both yarns are created through an environmentally-conscious process in which 95% of production materials are recovered. Modal has 10 times the yield of cotton, and uses significantly less water. The dyes are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means they are free of harmful chemicals. Learn about our fabrics.
        • Hand wash recommended due to the contrasting materials on the dress. Hang to dry. Do not iron the vegan leather. Do not put in the dryer.

    Versatile, chic & comfortable

    It is super comfortable, and totally works as different outfits for different occasion. Wished there were more colors or availabilities in the other colors offered. The price point is a bit high. Overall, satisfied though.

    versatile and flattering

    The fit is very generous and it took a couple of tries to find the best size (and the exchange process was very straightforward!). I found for me that sizing down 2 from my normal size provided the most versatile fit, roomy and loose without swimming in it. I ended up with a S (usually L based on the size charts), 5'6", 160 lb. I love that it can be styled in so many different ways and that it can be functional all year round. 4 compliments on the first day I wore it!

    Very versatile!

    Love this! it is so easy to wear. It can be styled casual with flats, dressier with leggings and booties or with skinny dress pants, heels and a tank for work. For reference I'm 5'5", 130 lbs and ordered an XS (still very oversized).
