Shortly after moving to the West Coast I realized Everlane is e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. Those who love it really love it and can spot each other a mile away. Yep. Didn't take long for me to jump on board.
For those who don't know, Everlane is an online-only retailer that is all about transparent, affordable, modern style. They show you exactly what your money is purchasing (i.e., $40 to material, $6 to hardware, $15 to labor, $7 to shipping – you get the idea).
Over the course of the year I've been in SF, I've purchased a good deal of Everlane products, and today I'm going to give you the inside scoop: is the cult following just a trend, or is Everlane worth the hype? Let's find out. Listed from favorite purchase to least favorite, we have.....
These were my FIRST Everlane purchase, & I am absolutely in love. They are a perfect fit, super stylish, great material and overall excellent. Would I suggest you purchase? Yes. Go. Now.
My most recent purchase. These leather sneaker shoes are a definite style statement. Do I love them? Yes. Are they expensive? A little, but not when you compare to other leather shoes. Should you purchase up a half size? Probably. I bought a 8.5 (my normal size) and they're a littttttle too tight. I only get blisters when I wear them on long walks though.
I have this t-shisrt in two colors, and I'm planning to buy the other two colors this summer. I literally LOVE this shirt. The sleeve to elbow is everything I've ever wanted & the material (cotton) is super soft. Obsessed. Should you buy it? Yes.
Modern Zip Backpack in Large << Fun Fact, Malia Obama was just spotted by Vogue wearing this backpack in black.
My most used purchase, this backpack literally accompanies me everyday of the week. I keep my computer, my coffee, my change of clothes, my medicine, my makeup, my water bottle, my notebooks, my books, my tide-to-go wipes.... I keep everything in this bag. I absolutely adore it. It's seen a little wear over the last nine months (see photos above), but would I suggest it to you? Yes. In a heartbeat.
The slouchy trouser was one of my first purchases. I loved the idea of it, but to be honest, the fit left something to be desired. I think it's probably the shape of my leg, but the calves were just way too tight on me, making the entire fit a little, off. I still wear these, a lot, and you might absolutely love them. They just aren't my faves.
Top – No longer on Sale
This drop shoulder blouse is no longer on sale, and I thank Everlane for listening to it's customers on this account. I picked this top for the sleeves (sucker for elbow length), but the shirt was a little constricting overall, and worse, shows pit stains. I think I've worn this shirt about 4 times since I bought it a year ago. Would I suggest it to you? Probably not. But you can't buy it anyway. They took it off the site ;)
So what's my conclusion? Is Everlane worth the hype? HELL YESSSSSSSSS! Count me a fan & if anyone wanted to gift me the dipped weekender, I'd say yes, puh-lease.
By the way, this post was not sponsored in any way by Everlane. I just really love the brand!
