If you follow the blog or follow me on Insta, you know that when Universal Standard rolled up into the district I was all over it. I am a seasoned online shopper and feel confident when I do, but when it comes to plus size clothing, it’s not often we get to try designers on in real life so I wasn’t going to pass that up.
I tried on a few pieces while there, including the turtleneck sweater dress. OMG this feels like cashmere! I love it because I can wear it alone or over pants which I’m all for layering pieces. I layered the navy blue dress over their aqua blue mesh dress. The two pieces worked great together, and I also love the fact that I can wear each piece separately.
When I got home I decided to place an order straight away. Yes, I could have purchased the pieces at the pop up, but I wanted my own brand new, never been worn. Plus I decided that instead of the blue combo I would go for the magenta sweater dress and layer it over the rose. And you know what? I love this color combo even more! Even if the colors didn’t look layered together, I knew that the possibilities for these two pieces were infinite.
The quality of this sweater dress is so good, I know I’m going to be wearing this all season long.
