Need Supply Supplies The Goods

Much of my wardrobe seems to be vintage or "vintage inspired," a style which is wholly unintentional. Occasionally, I try to expand the range of my closet and seek out pieces to make me feel more "current." That said, I was really excited to be approached by Need Supply, which is full of modern pieces. From studded heels to sleek blazers and sequin bras, it felt like a perfect source to keep me up-to-date with the "kid culture" and all that.
Since I can't fairly review a shop I've only admired via the web and never experience firsthand, they were kind enough to let me choose a couple of items from the shop. I couldn't resist the "Aphrodite dress" and the bag-lady inside me choose the "Fold Over bag" in cognac.
The dress is lightweight, nearly sheer, and with brass detailing that does make one feel like the infamous goddess it is named after. I'm wearing mine backwards, which keeps it rather demure and shows of my tattoos...The bag is nearly large enough to climb into, i.e. the perfect size. I really like the fact it's made to "fold over" and be worn multiple ways. In addition, it's vegan friendly. I'm not vegan, but it's always cool to find quality and stylish pieces that are vegan or environmentally friendly; every little bit counts, no?
So, my review of Need Supply? An excellent collection of pieces and smooth shipping. I'm really pleased with the quality of my items and I think they'll be getting a lot of use/wear. The dress was already really comfortable to wear all day and the bag fit all my necessary objects.
How neat is the crumbling staircase to nowhere? I think this might be my new favorite location.

  3. Love that you are wearing the dress backwards! Such a great idea to make it more versatile.

    And yet another online shop with things I covet.

  4. I love the shoes, the dress (wawawaw!), and this big brown bag *3*

    You're brave!!

  8. I've been almost buying those shoes for a long time, but the height of the heel scares me off every time. could you tell me, do you think they are comfortable? like are they really hard to walk in or do they feel super high?

  47. I love that you are wearing your dress backwards! I'm totally going to do that with a dress this week, I forgot how you can remix a dress like that!

  95. Wow, that's really creative! I would have just wore the dress with a tank underneath, but wouldn't have thought to wear it backwards! That's also my absolute FAVORITE color of tights right now!

    ReplyDelete
  96. love that crumbling staircase (you have the best area to explore!), love the deep V in the back of your dress, and love the shoes! ~joelle

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love all of your shoes. I wish Urban still had those. Purple tights = Win

    ReplyDelete
  98. I almost purchased that carry all as well. But my most recent experience with a satchel from ShopRuche (Which broke after 1 day!--even when they sent me another one, it broke as well!)... I thought I should try for a leather (gasp! an eco-freak buying leather!) satchel instead.

    Do you find it very strong?

    ReplyDelete
  99. I love the color of that purse!!! love love love love!

  100. How lucky are you to live near such beauty!! It's like your very own Forks, WA, well..maybe not, but close! I'm also very much in love with Bordeaux stockings...very Phillip Lim inspired!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Beautiful metal details on the dress -- decorative but not too overly rocker, which I like. I'm a total large bag fiend; the bigger the better, short of a piece of luggage. Although if there were a way to sling a vintage steamer trunk over my shoulder, I would. Love the stairs to nowhere. What a beautiful find in the woods -- will be a fun location to see how the change of seasons affect its mood in photographs.

    ReplyDelete
  102. That's so funny, I live right near Richmond and I visit Need all the time!

    Sadly it is MUCH too expensive for little ol' me.

    ReplyDelete
  103. i can't find this dress in the need supply web! i want it! its amazing :_)

    ReplyDelete
  104. J'adore tes cheveux et tes photos sont vraiment magnifiques
