Last weekend when I was at Target, I only had time to try on one pair of jeans from their new denim line, Universal Thread. But that didn’t satiate my curiosity. So I went back and tried on their $24.99 high-rise skinny jeans, which comes in three washes: dark wash, medium wash, and black.
Target has rolled out another new brand called Universal Thread. It’s an ambitious attempt to tackle denim, with a wide range of sizes and styles to flatter different body shapes. Target describes the brand as “do-good denim,” but is it?
About a month ago, I picked up a silicone sponge from Sur La Table. I was intrigued by its claim of drying quickly, not harboring germs, and lasting much longer than your typical sponge.
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.
