Saw It On Social: Amour Vert
Aug 17, 2017
My kingdom for an awesome jersey dress…
Like many women, I am appalled by the lack of high-quality t-shirts and jersey dresses on the market. When did thin and see-through become the industry standard? So when I saw a Facebook ad for the brand Amour Vert, which promised heavier, softer fabrics, I figured that I had nothing to lose.
From the moment I removed them from the packaging, I was blown away. They were so soft. They felt substantial (esp. the Miley). The fabric was so luxurious, I hadn’t even tried them on, and all I could think is, “I need 20 more.”
The drape on these dresses is beautiful. The venting on the Miley helps keep you cool wearing such a heavy jersey. And the swingy shape on the Simonetta is perfect for summer.
I also ordered the Lucy Top ($118) in the stripe. Very cute with the tie front, but it wasn’t flattering on me. The other issue was the fabric, which was thinner than I had hoped. Think Banana Republic quality.
As for sizing, I took my true size (a small) in every item. The size guide seemed to be spot on, and they added information about the model’s height and size, which helps gauge fit.
Also, Amour Vert is very environmentally conscious. When I first visited the site, before I saw their clothes, I saw how voraciously they promote being a green company. They pride themselves on sustainability and the use of low impact dyes. They also plant a tree for every order they sell.
While my experience wasn’t a total victory, I am already planning to grab two or three more dresses for the remainder of this season and next. I am also going to grab a few of their t-shirts to get me through the fall. Suffice it to say, I am extremely happy that I found this brand. I will definitely be buying from them in the future.
