The Versalette Challenge Accepted!

Hello lovelies! Last week we gave a shout out to one of our favorite sustainable fashion brands, Seamly.co! We also shared our favorite piece from their line, the revamped Versalette.

Midi Dress by Seamly.co – $40

In case you don’t remember, or didn’t see last week’s post, the Versalette is basically a wardrobe Swiss army knifeā€”a piece that can be worn in 30 different ways. Seamly.co launched the Versalette Challenge this past Wednesday, where fans rock their Versalette in new ways for a week and share photos via Instagram. Fun right? It gets better though… one lucky winner will be chosen based on creativity/personal style and will snag a bag of Seamly.co pieces (including this adorable Midi dress) and some one of a kind jewelry by Native Clutter. And well one of us (Jackie) at Y&L decided to take the challenge, and we thought it would be fun to share her looks so far!

Versalette Challenge Day 1

For day 1 Jackie rocked the original Versalette in charcoal as a skirt with an owl-print tee from Urban Outfitters, chambray button down from Urban Outfitters, and leopard print wedges from Toms. The head band is fair trade.

Versalette Challenge Day 2

By day 2 of the challenge her new Versalette arrived so Jackie decided to try it out, this time as a tunic top belted with a tribal print belt from Anthropologie. Denim from Levis, sandals from Urban Outfitters, and hat from Nordstroms.

What other way’s should Jackie rock the Versalette for the challenge? Strapless dress? Off shoulder top? Bubble skirt? Once the challenge is complete we will share a complete lookbook!

Sustainable Fashion We Love: Seamly.co

Hello there lovelies! We hope you had a beautiful week and a fun weekend ahead. A while back we featured one of our favorite pieces of versatile and sustainable fashion… the Versalette! It was the brain child of Kristin and Shannon who launched the Versalette and Revolution Apparel through an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign. Like everything in life, good things come to an end and Kristin and Shannon decided to pursue different paths in the sustainable fashion world. We were sad to see the Versalette go, but luckily we didn’t have to wait long for it to reappear! Kristin has helped launch a new sustainable fashion company that uses deadstock fabric to design and make create cool, sexy, and comfy pieces here in the U.S.A..

The revamped Versalette in black – $110 at Seamly.co

Sounds awesome right, that’s because it is. We love the revamped Versalette, which is currently available in black (more colors to come) and can be worn in 30 different ways. Yup, you heard us, 30 ways! If you are looking for a great piece that you could literally wear everyday (and not look the same) we suggest giving the Versalette a try… And if you are feeling really bold why not take part in their Versalette Challenge from July 24 – August 4.

Wear the Versalette each day and submit a picture of how you rocked it on Instagram (#versalette). A panel of judges will pick a winner, who will receive a package full of Seamly.co fashion and handmade jewelry by Native Clutter.

How do you feel about wearing the same item in new ways?

Fashion That Matters: The Versalette, 1 Piece, At Least 15 Ways.

The Versalette is the brain child of two amazing friends, Kristin and Shannon that got their startup funding through a Kickstarter campaign. Determined to make minimalist and travel fashion stylish, affordable, and functional they created one piece that offers so much versatility. The multifunctional piece can be worn in an advertised 15 different ways, but really there are even more possibilities than that. It is a dress, a skirt, a shirt, a purse, a scarf, a hood, and loads more. The Versalette is being made in the USA and with 100% recycled fabrics and the colors are created from recycled cotton scraps – not harsh and resource intensive dye practices. I love the idea of having fewer items hanging in my closet, but it’s hard to do when each piece has only one function or one way to wear it. The girls behind the Versalette have finally created eco-friendly fashion that is affordable and adorable and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next! Rock on Kristin and Shannon, ladies like you inspire me!

If you want to snatch up one of these great pieces you can pre-order on their website (it’s still in production and is expected to ship in July). I’ve ordered one in grey – and I can’t wait to try it out!
