It feels like ages since I’ve posted! With all of the family craziness surrounding Christmas, I didn’t have much time to put together a post of any sort, but today I’ve got something pretty cool to share with you!
One of my friends from school, Liz, is the co-founder of 38th & WICK, a clothing startup which has created the “No Stress Black Dress”. After having heard all of the hype flow throughout campus, I was very excited to get my hands on 38th & WICK’s “TJ” skirt to test out myself.
I was able to wear the skirt for a couple different dinner parties this holiday season, and received a lot of compliments, especially when I showed them all of its sweet features!
38th & WICK’s website boasts the following:
High performance, stretchy fabric
“High performance, four-way stretch outer fabric is moisture wicking and heavier than our other fabrics for a more luxurious feel”
I loved the comfortable feel of the skirt- I almost felt like I could go play squash in it! (Which technically, I could, since the fabric is moisture-wicking!). The skirt was super stretchy, which was absolutely crucial for the infamous post-dinner full belly syndrome.
Built in spandex shorts
“Lightweight, breathable built-in shorts provide maximum coverage and smooth out VPL”
I personally loved the built in shorts. It made me feel like I was fully covered, and they were super comfortable to boot!
Pocket for Phone/ID/Keys
“Phone, keys, ID, or cards easily slip into the subtle yet roomy waistband pocket”
If you’re not a fan of carrying on to your purse when you go out at night (seriously, who wants to dance with a bag?!), you will love this feature of “The TJ” skirt. You could comfortably hide a lipstick, keys, earrings, or other personal items in this subtle pocket for safekeeping.
Overall, the TJ skirt was a huge hit amongst my friends and family. I especially loved how the skirt could be dressed up or down, for either a casual or professional look. (Please excuse my “modelling”… if you can even call it that)
One night I paired the skirt with a simple t-shirt sweater, black blazer, and chunk necklace for a professional-esque look. This outfit also looks great with black tights!
I also really liked how the skirt was long enough. Since I’m fairly all (about 5 ft 9), most skirts and dresses appear pretty short on me. I’ve learned to deal with it, and now accept it, but it’s nice having a skirt which is long enough such that I don’t have to constantly pull it down to hide my derriere.
The size I am wearing in the pictures is a medium, and if I were to own one for myself, I would probably choose a large. While the medium size fit my waist properly and was a good length, it didn’t quite give enough room for my squash-butt. (For those of you that didn’t quite catch that reference- squash players tend to develop “squash butts” from all the lunging that is involved). Therefore, in order to accommodate for this, I would probably go up a size.
