Performance Work Dress is a WINNER!

I wore my new Performance Work Dress to a Business and Professional Women (BPW) national convention recently and was thrilled with the fit and comfort. I paired it with a cute pair of 'heyfolks' sneakers and received several compliments. Thank you Kristi and Encircled for another awesome addition to my wardrobe!

This dress is magic!

You should definitely buy this dress. It is so flattering! The material is gorgeous, substantial yet flexible. I unfortunately had to return it; neither the black nor the red work with my soft summer skintone. But if it comes out in a different color? I am going to get it! (I might also break down and get it in the red anyway.)

This dress I hesitate buying because of cost. It is worth every penny. The fabric is soft yet has body. It is figure flattering to a xxl women. I worried it would not fit but it does and I look fabulous in it. Just buy it, I doubt you will be sorry.

Love it.

I love this dress. I was a little worried about ordering an XL but I’m glad I did. It fits me perfectly and is so comfortable. The material is really nice and doesn’t feel a fragile as some of the other fabrics. Nice fall/winter dress.

High-quality, made here.

Effortless style, quality, comfort, ethics and (genuine) sustainability — we compromise nothing, so you don’t have to either. Proudly one of a handful of Women-owned certified B Corporations in Canada.
