Today I’m reviewing the Everlane Italian GoWeave Easy Pant. What is GoWeave, you ask? It’s a magical fabric that Everlane claims doesn’t wrinkle, keeps its shape, and regulates your temperature.
In which I abandon the purse organizer for a series of pouches or what I call The Pouch System. The Pouch System is exactly what it sounds like — I keep things in pouches. Here, I review some pouches from BAGGU and Daiso.
Happy new year, readers! As I look back on 2017 — my first year of blogging — I wanted to share the most popular Welcome Objects posts for the year. These are the five posts that received the most views.
When Everlane released its Day Heel back in April, it was so popular that it sold out in a day, generating a crazy wait list for it. People rave about it, and as I am always searching for a comfortable, chic shoe, I tried them on recently.
One small eco-friendly thing that I try to do is cut down on the amount of plastic I use. Plastic takes forever (about 1,000 years) to decompose. No bottled water for me. And no plastic bags, especially the flimsy one-use kind. I started carrying my own reusable bag to shop, but what about produce bags at the grocery store?
In my review of coats and jackets from Target, one of my favorites that I tried on was a faux fur leopard print coat. However, it ran big and I couldn’t stop thinking about how it might look in the right size, so I ordered it and well, here we are. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to think of leopard print as more of a neutral.
Today’s post is a review about a coat, but also about conflicted feelings. One place that I’ve enjoyed shopping is Club Monaco. I like their minimalist aesthetic (though they definitely get into frilly, feminine moods too.) Club Monaco feels a bit less fast fashion and trendy than other brands — at least that’s my perception of them — and I like that. I don’t care about trends.
Everlane came out with a new cashmere sweater this season (at least I think it’s new) and I love the idea of it. Hello Waffle Knit Cashmere Square Crew! I love waffle knit; it’s such a great texture. I had to go try it on.
I mentioned in a recent Instagram post that I’m not big on gifting just to meet a deadline. You see, I don’t want to buy something just for the sake of buying something. I’m also big on getting gifts that are practical. (Trying not to contribute to clutter and gift something that’s going to get KonMari’d down the road.) So here are a few things I picked out, with an eye towards encouraging environmentally-friendly behavior. These are (mostly) practical gifts, which I think will get lots of use.
One thing that I love about Everlane is how they take an everyday basic and give it a modern cut. That’s the case with their Cashmere Crop V-Neck. They’ve played with the proportions of a V-neck sweater, shortening the length and widening the V-neck. As a petite, I’m always looking for items of clothing that make me seem a little taller and a cropped sweater seemed like it would do the trick.
