More and more I’m finding myself looking for basics. Comfortable pieces I can pair up with my random finds. Now, I’ve heard about people who like to spend a lot of money on a t-shirt, but I’ve never been one to do it myself. Ok, I have a few exceptions… there always is. The other day, I received a package from Inhabit, a luxury knit label that makes some of your not-so-ordinary basics. They make sturdy stretchy cottons and super soft cashmere sweaters, tanks and tees. I really love the website lookbook, and upon inspecting the pieces I got, like light weight sheer cotton unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Slightly thicker than jersey yet translucent and stretchy, perfect raw edges, that cling gently to my body. This really separates the basics you would get at an pricey/affordable American Apparel… and after wearing all day yesterday, everything still retained thier shape quite well, something cheap cottons don’t do (without spandex).
Mostly the price points are quite high, hence the luxury market they cater to… but on the site they’re currently having a sale, most pieces around $38-$58…. so it’s worth a peek.
Here I’m wearing the Inhabit wide strap cotton tank, cotton v neck, and cotton cardigan (worn upside down) with a few pairs of trousers I picked up at the flea market, on wide legged, the other harem style, bendy necklaces worn as a bracelet (thank you Imelda Matt for mailing these!), my diy feather earrings, and a sheer tank worn as a scarf.
