I got an email early last week with some fab news: Universal Standard was bringing their pop up show on the road to D.C.! I saw a few of my blogger babes in L.A. and Texas having the opportunity to visit the pop up but I wasn’t sure it would make it to D.C. But I’m so glad they did!
If you don’t know Universal Standard, you should. They’re a relatively new brand, fresh out of NY in 2015. When they first jumped onto the plus size fashion scene, I was intrigued. The style aesthetic of US is simple yet chic. I saw a lot of pieces in the collection that called to me, but I hadn’t yet taken the plunge. Needless to say with the pop up shop so close to my house I was keen to get my hands on some pieces I was coveting!
The pop up space was HUGE! They had a few racks of their collection as well as a table for jeans (I didn’t try these on), and 5 free standing dressing rooms. My boo Ivory was raving about the sweater dress she tried on when the pop up show was in L.A., so I grabbed that, along with a few other pieces and headed into the dressing room.
If you saw my Instastories then you’ll know the fit and quality is incredible! I was really impressed. I found the sizing to be true to size which was great because some retailers can be inconsistent and that can be frustrating.
If you head on over to Instagram now you may be able to catch a few of my Instastories to see some pieces on. If you miss it don’t worry, I’ll show you what I walked away with soon! In the meantime, check out some of my favorite pieces from Universal Standard below!
