Have you shopped Brass Clothing yet? They have a similar mindset as Cuyana’s “fewer, better pieces”, in that the pieces are higher quality, and therefore longer lasting than stores such as F21 and H&M, but at reasonable prices so you can build a long-lasting wardrobe. Brass started with just dresses but over the past year have started to expand into shirts and other separates. In fact, just last week I received an email with the following note:
- We’ve introduced Real Models: Over 150 of our customers and supporters have signed up to model our clothes on the website! Check out an example here. You’ll now find more images of Real Models on the product pages.
- We’re taking chic and easy to a whole new level with the Closet Kit: 4 core pieces that can easily be mixed and matched. Multiple outfits, minimal effort at 10% off normal price.
- We’ve finally added separates and women are in love. Check out the Ponte Pants, White Blouse and Chambray Shirt.
I like shopping just as much as the next girl, but lately I’ve been intrigued by the idea of a capsule wardrobe and Brass is the brand to get me there (I’m a little obsessed with their closet kit, especially the ponte pants and chambray shirt, which pair so well together as you can see in the photo below!)
After seeing the Tank Maxi dress, I knew I wanted it, but I was a little concerned about the fit. I am short and busty, so I knew I wanted to get the XS but I was afraid the zipper would make it too tight in the chest area. But it doesn’t! It makes it snug but still super comfortable. I also loved that there was a second layer in the skirt that goes to about mid-thigh to make sure its not see-through. The XS was the perfect length for my 5’4″ height- it barely skimmed the floor without dragging. Did I mention it has pockets? Such a genius addition to a maxi dress! I love this maxi dress and will definitely by it in other colors.
The Boatneck Tank is different from what I normally wear- I’m a v-neck type of girl, but it is so flattering! It is slim fit, so definitely size up if you want a looser fit, but it is form fitting without being overly tight or clingy which really accentuates your curves. It comes in a light gray that is very neutral and goes with everything. I hope they make it in white and black as this one has already become a staple in my closet!
The last piece I got was the Sweater Dress, which unfortunately, they are no longer selling, although I’m sure they’ll bring it back for the fall/winter months. I think this is the perfect sweater dress- it has a good weight, which allows it to provide warmth without being bulky, it’s form fitting without being overly sexy so it can be worn out on the town or to work, and it has long sleeves. I love the charcoal color of the dress as that makes it even more versatile.
Have you tried anything from Brass Clothing? What piece(s) will you be picking up?
