My inner-tomboy is often on display here on North Star Dixie, there is no doubt about that. One of my favorite brands geared towards the tomboy in every girl is Tradlands. Recently debuting the highly anticipated Volume Two, Tradlands is making waves in the women’s clothing arena. We have all been there before; head into the store and while browsing the women’s side, you find yourself drifting across to the men’s side to see what they have to offer. Sometimes a few of the men’s pieces may even make it into the fitting room with us for the small hope that a small or medium will fit just right so you can add that awesome plaid or striped shirt to your wardrobe. Then reality hits. We have hips. Enough said.
Thank goodness for Sadie and Jeremy who (in my own head, but really not the truth) were put on this earth to build up my wardrobe with the perfect shirts for my female athletic build and strong work ethic. Tradlands’ intention is to “offer the best shirts for our customer: women who are creative, hard working, and like to be comfortable in their clothing.” Could an intention such as that fit me any better? No. Volume Two brings 12 new button-downs (doubling from Volume One), two henleys, and two t-shirts. With the increased options, Tradlands is hitting home runs with even more wardrobe staples stolen from the boys, crossing the isle, and making homes in women’s closets around the world.
Out of the 12 new button-downs, only two are patterned shirts; the Pier 7 ($127) madras plaid shirt and the Bernal Heights ($147) blue and white gingham. From the solid colors, Sea Cliff ($127) has stolen my heart and will soon be purchasing real estate in my closet. A beautiful linen/cotton blend of the richest color make Sea Cliff stand out against the crowd. Standing side by side with Sea Cliff in the shirt line-up is Jones St. Red ($127). From afar, this looks like your favorite oxford shirt. Up close and personal reveals fine lines for a striped pattern of red and white lines. These four are just my personal favorites of Volume Two, make sure to stock up on yours before they sell out! Use discount code “northstardixie” at checkout to receive 10% off!
