Ladies, it is the Centennial Celebration of the 19th Amendment this year; 100 years of American women being granted the right to vote!
Disclaimer: this is not a political blog post and we are not delving into the particulars about any of the current issues, parties, or candidates. This is simply a happy commemoration of womanhood and our legal right to vote.
Our great grandmothers may have been one of the courageous suffragettes who pinned up their hair, smoothed the wrinkles out of their long dresses, and picked up a handmade sign in order to do their part in spreading awareness about the inherent right of women to voice their opinion in the ballot booth. Today we can mail in a ballot or we think nothing of driving to our local polling place to check off a few boxes and then Insta-brag with a selfie that includes the ubiquitous voting sticker, but our fore-mothers certainly didn’t take it for granted. They faced immense criticism, sexism, and sometimes downright violence in their quest to gain the right to vote, and this year we honor their sacrifices and hard work. Regardless of your political opinions, please pay tribute to those women in Edwardian kitten heels who bravely fought for your path to those polling places.
This week we are so excited to bring you a capsule that visually expresses the strength and femininity that celebrates women, using fabrics and styles that celebrate the way that was paved for us by our maternal ancestors. Instead of ankle length hobble skirts and corseted bosoms, the women of the twenty-first century is able to live comfortably in denim, jeans, and a comfy hoodie. Fully embracing our right to that, we present to you the brand new Cora Dress in Dark Denim, the all-new Cassidy hoodie in Mint, and what so many of you requested when we released our new Premium Denims earlier this year; Premium Denim Skinnies in Dark Denim!
The Cora Dress in Dark Denim is an all new dress style for Evy’s Tree, completely in line with our previous lovely dresses and all of their beauty. Featuring fully operational full length snap buttons, two functional breast pockets, traditional collar, an empire waist with a two tiered skirt and long sleeves with snap button cuffs, this is the staple dress for your fall wardrobe! The Cora is a true multi-season essential dress for any occasion; wear now and wear later with colorful tights & knee high boots or your favorite broken-in cowboy boots to give it just a little extra attitude! However you wear it, it’s designed with you in mind.
Secondly in our capsule is another all new multi-season hoodie, the Cassidy in Mint. This easy style is perfect for any day in a cozy taupe slub knit with deep mint stripes. The Cassidy is designed with a wide extra comfortable body similar to the Tatum, an open v-neck, self-lined hood, mint grosgrain ribbon ties, body flattering high-low hem and inset pockets. This is the lightweight hoodie that truly has it all and is the perfect layer for that soon-coming crisp air. Whether you’re hanging out at home or heading out and about, the Cassidy in Mint will easily become your go-to in this season and those to come.
Lastly in our capsule and back by popular demand (and in the ideal wash for fall!) say hello to the Premium Denim Skinnies in Dark Wash! You asked and we listened…these skinnies are designed like our Premium Distressed Skinnies with a high rise ultra soft premium denim containing powerful and supportive stretch. Our new Premium Denim features a traditional functioning front, coin and back pockets with button and zipper fly, body flattering rear pocket placement and a gentle fade to accentuate all of your assets. Every detail has been thoughtfully designed with every body in mind. These Dark Wash Premium Denim Skinnies will go with nearly every single item in your closet this fall and winter, especially if you wear them to the ballot box!
