Congratulations to Kathy H. from Austin, TX, a new subscriber to the Wanderlust and Lipstick Newsletter, for winning this month’s prize!
Check out our contest for April here.
You might know them as Horny Toad, but these folks have just recently gone through a rebranding and are now Toad&Co. (Apparently some people were offended by their old name.)
Whatever you call them, I’m pretty darn happy they have just come out with a line of travel clothes. I visited REI recently and the salesperson was equally as thrilled and started showing me the hidden pockets found in each of the new pieces that REI carries.
I was happy to try out their new Corsica Dress, mainly because I know it’s going to be a great travel piece for my trip to Maui in April.
The low tail hem in the back is the first thing that attracted me to the Corsica. I love that asymmetrical look. The wide straps make it easy to wear with any bra (or even over a bathing suit).
The fabric is Toad&Co’s Aquaculture jersey knit which is stretchable–it’s polyester with 15% spandex–but also water-friendly and moisture-wicking. More reasons why it’ll be a great travel piece when I head to Hawaii.
Next to to the low tail hem, the best feature for me is the zip-slip hip pocket on the right sideseam where I can store some cash and my ID. I’m not sure this will totally eliminate the need for me to carry a small purse, but it sure is a nice safety feature.
Oh, and Toad&Co guarantees that if you don’t get a compliment within three wearings or you find something wrong with your dress, you can return it and they’ll make it right. What more could you ask for?
The Corsica Dress comes in two colors – Tuareg (pictured above) and Black (pictured right).
Toad&Co was founded on the idea that you should never have to choose between living well and doing good, such that their clothes are meant to inspire you to live your fullest life. They do their best to make choices that are socially and environmentally smart so you can feel as good as you look.
