September 22nd is National Business Women's Day and as a women-owned business, Six Twenty wants to celebrate with a campaign around female entrepreneurs and business women they admire. I was chosen by them as a female business owner and entrepreneur to showcase Six Twenty's collection and celebrate this day.
Owned by Angeli Tarsadia Reddy who started the company with the mission to create the highest quality clothing at ridiculously good prices, Six Twenty's mission is to refine the process and pricing behind the amazing basics we all wear to death. By existing solely online, Six Twenty eliminates the traditional retail markup and brings you their own designer quality essentials from the factory straight to your doorstep. Six Twenty let me choose one of their Classix designs, and I decided to try their black scoop tee. As a woman with curves, I find such a shirt extremely hard to fit and flatter.
I was a bit nervous since the shirts only go up to size L, but they reassured me that it would fit and flatter. And both it does, seriously this shirt is AMAZING. While it looks like a regular tee shirt, the fabric is really lovely – a dense knit that is silky yet matte, stretchy yet doesn’t cling. No stretching across my bust, no sleeves riding up into my armpits, no clinging to my torso, yet it doesn’t look frumpy or square. The shirt has a back vertical seam which I think helps achieve the fabulous fit. The length is also great – I can wear untucked without it hanging to my knees or showing my belly when I raise my hands yet can comfortably tuck in as well. It’s awesome when a chance meeting like this helps me find a new favorite brand!
I chose to style this tee in a business casual look – crisp dark jeans, ivory blazer, classic jewelry and a pop of interest with the shoes. This look would be great on Friday or for a more casual networking event or meal on a business trip.
