Review: Grana Pima V-Neck Tee

The post really should be titled “The Search is Over. I Found the Perfect Tee.” I don’t really like to call anything perfect because I am so picky, but the Grana pima cotton tees are damn near if not totally perfect. Full disclosure… Grana sent me this tee in addition to the lovely cashmere sweaters and silk shirt to review.

The instant I put it on I could feel the difference in the fabric. Holy crap is this pima cotton soft! The fabric is nice and thick, so you don’t have to worry about bra show through. I’m talking a regular nude bra. Not hot pink or black. I love that their tees are a bit longer than some others, so you don’t have to worry about your lily white fish belly showing if you raise your arms. At $15.00 a pop, these are a great deal. Way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the Everlane tees. WAY. And I like those tees, but these are a zillion times better.

I think the proof is in the purchase. I bought four more. I bought two more of the v-neck and two of the crew neck. Pro tip: Size up. I typically take a medium in tees and tops, but I am wearing a large here.

Review: Grana Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater

I have one final Grana cashmere sweater to show you and I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite. As I shared last week, the folks at Grana sent me some of their product to review. They had no requirement for number of posts. They had no requirement for positive reviews. They had no requirement for anything. I’m sharing this look because I really like the sweater. I’m wearing the Grana Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater in burgundy. I love the color, and I love the simple classic shape. I wore this sweater three times over the past week. Shhhhhh… Don’t tell any work peeps or any of my friends. I don’t want them thinking I’m gross.

This crew is simply great. I love that basic crews are like a blank slate. You can dress them up or down. Granted, this is a really basic look that I wore to work. (Look at me wearing real pants! I still hate pants.) However, I am looking forward to wearing this with an obnoxiously sparkly necklace soon. It also looks great with a pair of jeans and booties or retro sneakers for a casual look. I want it in black or navy and plan to buy it after I make it out of January. I’m trying to succeed at “no spend” January.

Review: Grana Boyfriend Crew Neck Cashmere Sweater

Today I’ve got another great Grana cashmere sweater to share with you. As I mentioned on Monday, the kind folks at Grana sent me some items to review. All opinions on the product are my own. If you missed Monday’s post, let me suggest that you click here for a rundown on the company and why I decided to try them out.

I’m wearing the Grana Boyfriend Crew Neck style today. The style is slouchy like the v-neck, but you know…  It’s a crew neck. It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but this style also has a dropped shoulder seam like the v-neck. What I really like about these “boyfriend” style sweaters is that they are roomy enough to layer and not have weird lumps and bumps show through the sweater. The cashmere is just as amazing as the other sweater. It’s soft and thick enough that there is no show through. I really love Grana’s cashmere offerings.

I know you are thinking “how does this cashmere compare to Everlane’s cashmere”? I’d say it’s very, very, very similar. I wouldn’t be able to tell a difference if there weren’t labels on them. What I like about Grana is the classic styles that they offer. While I love Everlane, many of their cashmere styles are quite modern or fashion forward and they don’t fit my frame well. I love the cropped and boxy look…  Just not on me. Grana provides more classic silhouettes that work better with my body type.
