Review: Fresh Produce Clothing

In the days before I had the kiddos, I did (now unthinkable,) stuff like wear uncomfortable shoes, and iron my clothes every day.

I like to think I've just become more practical. I know I may have to run after the kids, so I wear flip flops or sneakers most days. Fancy clothes don't really lend themselves to cooking, and cleaning, and playing.

I still like to look nice, though.

When I was contacted about reviewing an item from Fresh Produce clothing, I went to check out their wares online. (They also have brick and mortar stores, but none local for me.)  Their clothes are stylish, modern, modest, and easy to care for. They also offer a large range of sizes, from XS to 3X. I got to pick what I wanted, and honestly had a hard time narrowing it down to just one thing. They have gorgeous tunics, cute summery dresses, lots of other fun, spring clothing.

I finally selected the Cafe Wrap Dress, in black, (retail $69,) and waited anxiously for it to arrive.

When got here, I dropped everything, and tried it on, and found that it fit perfectly. I normally wear about a 4, and the XS (2-4) seemed true to size. It hits me at about knee length, and although it's a wrap dress, the skirt portion is sort of a wrap over a real skirt, so there's no danger of flashing anyone on a windy day. (Ahem, not that I've ever accidentally done that or anything.) It was also super cute and comfortable.

(My husband took this really awkward picture of me wearing it. What can I say? I've been sick, I'm not feeling very photogenic.)

I've put it in the permanent rotation, and probably wear it once a week. I get compliments on it wherever I wear it.

I've had some health issues come up (again,)  and got behind on posting about it. In the meantime, I've worn it and washed it at least ten times. It washes nicely, with no  fading and pilling, and as long as I hang it after I get it out of the dryer, there are virtually no wrinkles.

In short, it's pretty much the perfect spring dress.

If I could, I'd have a closet full of them, in different colors and patterns.

Whether you're looking for a fun beach dress, something to wear to a casual summer wedding, or just want to look cute kicking around the house this summer, Fresh Produce has you covered.
