After 13 years, the cushioning of my IKEA Allerum sofa was still firm, but the slipcover had gotten ratty. But where do you get a slipcover for an IKEA product that is no longer in production?
I’ve never been completely satisfied with a bra — I’m the kind of gal who immediately takes off my bra when I get home — so I was curious to try ThirdLove, a startup that offers half cup sizes and makes their own styles of bras based on lots of data.
I’ve been curious about Allbirds since I heard about them from a friend who described them as “like walking on clouds.” As someone who has trouble finding shoes that fit (my feet are on the wide-ish side), I’m always on the lookout for cute and comfy shoes. Allbirds says they are eco-friendly, too, which is a huge plus in my book.
One of the things I’ve been on the lookout for is a loosely draping T-shirt for summer. I don’t want it to cling to the body because of hot weather, but I also don’t want it look baggy. Behold: the Drape Crewneck Short Sleeve T-shirt at Uniqlo.
I’m a sucker for coats and jackets, and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a good time to shop for one. (It’s also a great time for shoes — I had a few picks in part 1 of my Anniversary Sale roundup.)
Browsing the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I can’t believe I forgot that Early Access (for Nordstrom card holders) started on July 13. I usually put it down on my calendar. The sale is for fall season (my favorite fashion season!) and it’s a decent sale. Most items seem to be around 25% to 35% off.
This is part 2 of my review of Uniqlo summer finds. Visit part 1 about the High Waist Belted Flare Midi Skirt here. As you can tell from the title, this is mostly about things that failed on me. But hey, maybe they’ll work for you.
A review of Uniqlo’s High Waist Midi Flare Skirt. (Hint: I love it!) I’m usually a pencil skirt kind of gal, but I wanted something loose yet still elegant to wear in the heat.
One of my happy places is Daiso. If you don’t have a Daiso near you, I’m sorry. Daiso is a chain of Japanese dollar stores where almost everything is $1.50. They’ve got kitchenware, office supplies, home decor, gardening goodies, pet supplies, cleaning sundries, and a whole glorious room called household plastics where you can find various plastic boxes to organize stuff your heart’s content.
It’s T-shirt weather, even for a few days here in San Francisco, so I thought I’d review some tees by Everlane. I’ve had these shirts for almost a year and a half, so I’ll show you how they’ve held up.
