Casualmere Review and Giveaway

I was thrilled when the folks at Casualmere contacted me to host a review and giveaway. I love being able to give stuff away to you all, but love it twice as much when it's GREEN.

This company creates butter-soft knits from from high-quality viscose made from bamboo and their garments feature the highest ecologically sourced bamboo content – typically 100 percent, though a few pieces include 5 percent spandex for a bit of stretch.The women's line is fairly small, but has some great basics: Tees, scarves, and my favorite, some darling tee-shirt dresses.

I was sent a short-sleeved bamboo tee-shirt dress to review and keep. I'll be honest: On its own, it's not exactly my most thrilling or flattering garment. Which might be, in part, because I requested a size large and probably could've made do with a medium.

HOWEVER! This dress is already part of about 15 outfits in my outfit list for fall and winter, because it's utterly perfect for layered looks like this one.

The dress is a bit clingy and benefits from a slip, but it's fabulously soft, comfortable, and lightweight enough to make an ideal base-layer. I intend to wear the living daylights out of it!

Lucky for you, I've got a little black bamboo dress to give away! Here's how you enter to win:
  1. Be a U.S. resident.
  2. Visit the Casualmere website.

  3. Leave a comment on this post telling how you'd style this dress, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.

  4. Either like Casualmere on Facebook, or follow Casualmere on Twitter, or sign up for their e-newsletter (bottom right corner of the page).
  5. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, November 14. I'll draw a winner at random the following week. This contest is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck, everyone!

My whole wardrobe is great basics like this. I love accessories with colorful scarves and boots. A long necklace or headband. I love it!

I love this, especially in black. I'd dig out some black patterned tights, layer with a bold magenta cardigan, and then top that off with a fuzzy gray sweater coat (it gets cold in Seattle during the winter!).


Keely said...

I love it! I'd style it with my tonal gray tights and chunky tonal gray-black cardigan with my black knee-high boots. It'd be a weekend look that I could run errands in or meet the ladies for lunch.

My patterned black tights, shiny black knee length flat boots, wide gold flowered loose chain belt and black lacy cardigan/wrap. Or maybe my new black with gold threads shawl would be better than the sweater. Oh so many ways to style!

so versatile! my first reaction would be to wear it with grey denim leggings tucked into black combat boots, a black newsboy cap, and dangling hematite earrings. in colder weather i'd layer something long-sleeved under it in either white or grey - perhaps a button-down or a thermal, depending on how fancy i want to be.

I'm also in Minnesota, so I'd pair it with a fitted cardigan and heels since I don't like boots.

I think a long-sleeved tee layered underneath, fun tights, and boots are the way to go. Possibly belted, as that's something I'm interested in perfecting. Upon return of pre-preggy body.

For warm weather, I'd wear it with some platforms, some bold colored funky jewelry, and maybe a belt.

For cooler weather, layered either over a long-sleeve tee, or under a cardi, with a bold necklace, tights and boots.

Very versatile piece!!

My first thought is brown belt(at hips) with my cowboy boots and chunk turquoise necklace. I'd have to try it on to see first ;)

I want to wear it with patterned tights, ankle boots, and a bolero jean jacket with vintage brooches.


Alyson said...

I've got this new silk belt that I've thrifted and I need a LBD to pair it with! It has crazy lime green and hot pink retro patterns. I'd probably keep the rest of the outfit neutral--black suede boots and maybe a chunky silver necklace.

Aibrean said...

Well, I am built like you, so the first thing I would do is belt the sucker. I'm really feeling a bright teal leather belt, maybe in croc print. (This is completely inspired by my day planner. Is that odd?) I would wear textured black tights so that I wouldn't be a solid swath of black from the waist down, and I'd finish with some yellow or black patent heels. A teal pashmina scarf would keep me warm and double as a wrap.

What a perfect layering dress, and I am super excited by how warm it probably is.

I would wear it with gray or magenta (or maybe teal...) tights, my brown boots, and either my gray or royal blue cardigan. Then a belt (olive green or silver) and chunky earrings. If it was really chilly out, I'd layer my gray or black/white striped long-sleeve t under it as well.

in black, this is a perfect beach dress for me. i spend a lot of time on the beach, knitting and watching my boys - NOT in a swimsuit, because i rarely get in the water. (lake superior, brr!)

depending on the day, i would either wear it with metal jewelry, big shades and pretty sandals OR colorful jewelry and kerchief to keep my hair out of my face. in either case, a gigantic bag is a must.

i made a polyvore set for both my ideas!

So many different ways to wear one of these, especially in black. Probably my first outing in it would be with black fishnets and black vintage cowgirl boots, and an army green Eddie Bauer fitted jacket that I've had for years, with a silk triangular fringed shawl in army green/black. Still thinking over the jewels for this one!

I would wear it with colored tights or fishnets, or a combo of the two, with boots or booties, over a long sleeved top (tee or button-up, depending on how dressy I want to be) with a funky wide belt. In the summer, I would rock it with sandals or heels and a funky necklace.

Long layers over tights or leggins. Long beaded necklace, mid-thigh length wrappy, soft cardi. High chunky boots or booties. Wait...I kind of just described your last outfit post of this dress... It doesn't surprise me, your outfits are so great!

Oooh, looks like a lovely dress! I think I'd go for it over my cranberry tights (maybe with black fishnets over them, depending on the cold and the occasion), a grey belt, some biker boots, and a long pendant necklace.

I just loaded up on tights and cardigans for fall, plus have some great new flat boots for walking, so that is what I'd do. Come summer, I think it would be really cute with an elbow-length cardi and sandals.


Kimberly said...

I'm thinking gray sweater leggings, gray slouchy boots, teal belted cardi.


Mina said...

I'd probably style it similarly, with some type of outerwear and tights/leggings. I think I'd play it up with different shoes. I love the boots with the jacket, but heels would dress it up with one of my colorful boho scarves, and would require perhaps a different jacket jacket.

I could also throw a pendant and a belt on it at just the right spot (perhaps under the bust) with the boots and leggings (maybe black, maybe colored, maybe another grey/neutral), and I'd dress it up with either bangles or showy earrings (peacock feathers or large silver hoops would make it sweet).


Leah Harrison said...

Hmm. I if I had the black one I'd wear it like this: With a grey cardigan over it, and then my black leather motorcycle jacket over that. I would wear some lacy tights and my chunky black combat boots, with socks peeking out the top.

Most likely with tights, leggings, or some variety of pants, and boots and a mess of jewelry.

Ideally, though, I'll wear it by itself, so I can feel like I'm wearing pajamas ALL DAY, or somehow naked.

I'd layer it with my purple boyfriend cardigan, scarf and lace tights with my engineer boots in the fall/winter or with a bright belt, tons of accessories and my strappy wedges in the summer! I love these kinds of dresses!

I really like simply cut (and comfortable) clothing (JUST like this dress), so then I can rev up the funk with lots of accessories! Handmade, of course!
It's so easy to transform your clothing with different accessories!
