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.
Everlane’s Modern Point Flat is a classic loafer, but with the twist of a slim pointy toe. It has a three-quarter inch stacked heel. Sleek and chic, they seem like the perfect pair of flats for an office.
All these other bloggers have been raving about the Leith Ruched Bodycon Tank Dress. It’s flattering, they say. It’s versatile. It’s priced at $56! But I’m picker than most people. Is it really that great? OK, let’s see about that. Off I went to Nordstrom.
Earlier this year, I reviewed some Everlane T-shirts and noticed that one of them had a small hole at the bottom in the front. This is not the first time a shirt has developed a hole in this area. Perhaps it had something to do with my jeans. Was the button on my jeans rubbing my T-shirt? Well, there’s a solution for that. A company out of the UK called Holé makes silicone button covers.
