When beginning to put together the puzzle of this past season, I asked myself to come up with a few words to function as 'northern stars'. Guardrails to steer me in the right direction when choosing fabrics, styles & colors.
The words that came from inside my head were: "soft as clouds & cotton balls", "floating & dreaming" & "the 'Victorialand' album by Cocteau Twins"
From there, my obsession began: barely-there tones, scrumptiously soft fabrics, perfect staple pieces, style with ease
WHY DO I LOVE THIS STYLE? I am going through a MAJOR sweatshirt phase right now. It actually makes me feel kinda young when I pop one on - I always associate the perfect sweatshirt with handsome frat boys.
I've been layering these over my button down shirts; it's stylish but with ease.
But besides all that, the fact is that this fleece is really soft & comfy - as soon as I get home, I look forward to jumping right into my sweatshirts & joggers.
Each sweatshirt is constructed from a 7.4 oz, rich cotton/poly blended knit fabric. The fabric definitely has some body to it which makes for a flattering fit and a more polished look.
Made In USA
Oh and don't think Stephen, (my handsome pal who is modeling) gave any samples back! He is addicted now too :)
Below is some information regarding how B+B fleece got started:
Let me guess, you've been spending a little more time at home lately, right?Yeah me too...
So I gave myself a little project......If I am going to be here, how can I make myself comfortable without looking like and feeling like a complete lazy bones?
I needed a Blade+Blue version of these ugly sweatshirts & sweatpants that were taking up way too much space in my tiny closet.
So here we are and I am SO EXCITED to see this idea come to life. Not even the pandemic could stop this from happening!
I would also like to say that it was a very rewarding experience to meet and work with people who were in the same boat as I was... we were up against the ropes and we had to box our way out of this mess.
I am very proud that these pieces were Made in USA for Blade+Blue.
To me, these sweatshirts are the new sweater and these joggers are the new jeans.
Check out the images and you'll see that the models are dressed casually (tee & jogger) or more put together with a button down & fleece top). Either way, they look great :)
If you want to see these pieces in real life, just wait on the corner of Eureka St. & Market St. in SF... you are bound to see me walking Blade & Gavin, dashing to the post office before they close, running out to grab my DoorDash order or going for a walk with my Erik. Whatever I am doing, I am in these!
I really like feeling this comfortable but doing it in Blade+Blue style. It makes me feel like not everything had to change in this nutty world.
Each piece sports the Blade+Blue crest by the hem on the wearer's right.
For sizing information, please see the size chart in the row of images for this style.
