I have had my eye on this dress for a long, long time, and as luck would have it, it showed up in my Mystery Box from Malaika yesterday. It's over 100 degrees in the Midwest this week, so I immediately tried on this comfortable dress and took an air-conditioned nap. The fabric is amazing. It's black, but there's nothing hot about it, and the feel of the organic cotton against skin is almost like nothing at all. The proof is in the fact that when I woke up, there were two cats asleep on me, and they did NOT want to move! In spite of the nap within a nap, I stood up without wrinkles in my dress, and the evidence of "catnaps" brushed off easily. I love this dress. It can go from work to shopping to walk to nap and back again. And don't let the tire embellishments scare you away. They are soft, stylish, and edgy. Love this dress.
Tire T-Shirt Dress
It is a super comfortable dress, you can style it in so many ways, and it always ends up looking most flattering!
I have been using this butter for two days now. It is perfect for cold winter days and has a delicate summer lavender scent.
I found Malaika on "good on you" and now got my first piece with this poncho. I love how super soft and cosy it feels! It fits perfectly. I'm looking forward to wearing it from now on. Thank you, Malaika for this wonderful, sustainable and stylish garment!
These leggings are super soft with a great fit. I like the touch of the bicycle tube design on the outer leg.
This is more of a sweater than a poncho, but no matter what you call it, this piece is absolutely lovely. It's soft, warm, elegant, comfortable, and well-made. It's not itchy in the slightest and I love the way that it cascades down the back. I wore it to a memorial service and felt cozy and elegant and comforted all at once.
I live in Chicago where the winter months can be very dry. My hands and feet usually suffer as a result. This year I’ve been using Malaika’s body butter on my hands and feet every evening and they’ve never been happier! You really only need to apply it once a day to see the results. And it smells amazing too.
I wore this top to my nephew's New Year's Eve wedding, and it sparkled and shone all night long! I love the fact it can be worn different ways. I chose to wear it with the shear side in front and the satin side in the back. It was super light and comfortable and very stylish--no slipping or sliding or readjustments needed after dancing. It was so well made--I will treasure this top for years and look for more opportunities to wear it. You can't beat the speedy customer service from Malaika New York!
It's only Monday, but this week has started out like last week! Frustration with people who don't do what they say they are going to do, poor customer service, and grouchy people everywhere! But today, I wore my Hex Tee, and it's the one thing I can count on.... always comfortable and cozy, beautifully crafted, and it makes me smile to know it's good for the environment and supports women entrepreneurs. Thanks, Malaika, for a bright spot in an otherwise insufferable day! I'll probably need to buy this in more colors if I have any more weeks like this!
So glad to have found this top. I love the colour and think it's perfect for days when I want to appear avant-garde. I will eventually be looking to order in another colour too!
I love love love these leggings. They are edgy, sustainable and cruelty free. I was a bit worried when I first received them as I couldn’t pull them up past my hips without the material making cracking sounds. I wrote to Malaika who promptly replied that they are made to stretch. So I tried again and they fit like a glove and are very flattering! I highly recommend these leggings.
I’m obsessed with this dress! I love the concept behind zero waste design, but the drape and fit of this piece is next level! The fabric hits and hangs in all the right places. It’s extremely comfortable and versatile. I love how I can dress it up and down.
Flattering, functional and sustainable. Once again, simple and elegant - the draping is masterful for which I am truly grateful.
