Clothing made for your body
Handmade with love in our LA studio.
It was quite an adventure for me to end up with this dress - I originally had ordered a pair of trousers that just didn’t fit my body type right. I returned them without issue for a store credit and waited to find another item I loved to replace it. I ended up with this dress in black gauze and I basically will not take it off. It’s been my favorite item to wear all summer and is really breathable for the warmer, muggier days. The style is impeccable… looks great dressed up with jewelry, slide sandals, and some killer shades. Just so, so pleased. Thanks to the Sotela team for being so amenable through the process and designing these beautiful pieces!
I had been looking for a long sleeve, button up dress, to wear during cooler weather and for layering with wool sweaters, but with a material that could be used in warmer weather too, for sun protection. I was looking for what seemed like ages, different brands, different stlyes, secondhand and new, and finally decided to go with the Granada dress. Its absolutely perfect. The material is soft, just enough room in the silhouette to be comfortable but not shapeless, and the removable belt is a nice touch. The shoulders aren't too big, and the sleeves can be rolled up easily. Its a versatile dress, can be worn casual, for work or a night out. Being able to select the button colors was also a a nice touch, it makes each piece unique! Seriously this dress is perfection, I regret not getting it sooner! The only thing is I wish it had regular side pockets. For reference I ordered a size 1 regular length, and have a size 37 inch bust, 31 inch waist, 38 inch hips and I'm 5'2.
I was eyeing the Granada Dress for ages and am so glad I finally bought it. Extremely comfy but makes me feel put together!
