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.
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.
I’m not encouraging you to buy stuff just to buy stuff. My struggle with wanting to buy stuff but wanting to pare down is the reason I started this blog. However, if you’re in the mood for shopping and looking for ethically-made, (hopefully) long lasting items, here are some brands I like (or have been curious about) having Cyber Monday and holiday sales.
On my last Target run, I couldn’t help but notice that the floor in the women’s department was full of coats and jackets, so I tried a bunch of them for fun (and for you, my dear reader).
If you’ve been following my blog, then you know I haven’t had much success with Everlane shoes because they run too narrow for my wide-ish feet. So, I was thrilled to hear about the new Editor Heel, which Everlane says runs on the big side. I just happen to be in the market for a smart pointy toe kitten heel.
In September, Everlane started selling jeans, which makes a lot of sense for a brand known for basics. It’s a wardrobe staple a lot of us can’t live without. But it took them two years to source a factory for their denim because they were searching for an environmentally-friendly factory.
Here are all my Everlane reviews in one post — organized by category and by item, alphabetically.
As you may know from my post about ThirdLove, I’m on the search for the perfect bra. The $68 ThirdLove Classic T-shirt Bra, while comfortable, ultimately didn’t work because the straps kept falling down. So why not take a look at the other end of the spectrum and check out this Uniqlo Beauty Light Wireless Bra, which costs just $19.90?
I love the look of joggers for those more casual days, but because I’m petite, they often end up being regular length on me. (That was the case with these Uniqlo joggers.) So, I kept my eye out for a pair of jogger pants than would work for my frame, and Ann Taylor delivered.
