Everlane Day Heel Review

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.

Flip & Tumble Produce Bags Review

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?

Faux Fur Leopard Print Coats from Target

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.

A Practical Gift Guide of Reusable Objects

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.

Everlane Cashmere Crop V-Neck Sweater Review

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.
