Cheap and chic of the week

The fact that I am endorsing this tank dress represents a major shift in policy for me, as I am typically, vehemently anti-maxi. But this one has such a nice, sophisticated neckline—a rarity for this silhouette—and slouch for days.

    Thanks Kim for turning me on to Everlane. I ordered this dress in grey last week (arriving tomorrow!) and plan to wear on vacation… Everlane is supercool

    Everything I’ve ordered from Everlane I love. Although as a vertically challenged person I avoid dresses/skirts that are maxi in length, this one does appeal because it looks as comfy as pjs.

    Are the armholes really big?

    I love Everlane! I have always had great luck with them. One thing, though, upon watching the video of the model, I could see her underwear. Sigh.

    I usually dislike maxis too, even though I love the idea. This one comes close — but I can’t do a dropwaist. On others it may work very well.

    All this dress needs is a quick trip to the seamstress to cut off about 7 inches and make it mid calf and it would be my route to summer happiness!

    Tailoring is always an option!

    I vote YES! I love maxis, and own several…no lady bits issues.

    I have this dress and it runs big. I’m a M (8/10) and had to exchange for a S.

    • KHD says:

      The size chart said L = 8-10, so that’s what I ordered. Are you sure it is the same dress?

      • Dee says:

        Yes, I am 5’8, 160 and a 36 B, 30 jeans and the L was huge. The M was loose, as pictured. I went with the S which was more fitted/flattering but shorter…more of a long midi length. Their customer service was amazing and you can order the exchange to compare with free shipping/return shipping.

    My sister is the only person on the planet who looks good in maxi dresses – she’s tall and willowy, with boobs. They work with her ‘high end hippie chick’ look. NO ONE else should wear them.

    I have a long linen one from j crew last year that I like.
    I feel like the crispness of the linen makes it work.
    No slouch though.more like a shift.

    Like the look. But easy, breezy? No way. In real life, it’s like a mini sweat lodge.

    • kates says:

      I totally agree. I think they look so nice but whenever I’ve tried to wear them I’m way too hot, especially in this NYC heat and humidity!

    I’m expecting to see a LOT of major shifts in policy change from the candidates in the next presidential election, Kim…so why not you?

    I’m so excited about this dress. It came while I was gone for a long weekend, and I opened it this morning, immediately changed, and spent the morning in it, teaching a group of gorgeous middle school girls. It was comfortable and cool, and I felt rather elegant, and it was so very easy to sit on the floor with them, to move around, and looked great (still does!). I love it!!
