Rag & Bone/JEAN Charley tank | size small
Everlane Luxe sweater cardigan | size medium
Some quick looks at a few Everlane pieces I ordered (using credits in my Everlane account) to try. First, the luxe sweater cardigan. I ordered this in a medium, because I wanted it to be longer and slouchier. I like it. It’s not really exciting, and I sort of wanted it to be. Black cardigans are necessary, I think, and this one is great: good quality, medium-weight, nice sleeves, nice drape, minimal, and an excellent basic. But it’s just SO BASIC. I don’t know how else to describe it. I want texture, side slits, something more from a black cardigan right now. So I think I’ll send this one back. The search continues.
Everlane luxe mock neck sweater in emerald | size small
I am VERY conflicted about this sweater. I love the color, and the fit isn’t bad, but it’s a little “off.” It’s not really a throw-on-and-go sweater for me; I can’t wear it with everything in my closet (my skinny jeans, for example), or layer it over a dress or wear it with a skirt – it’s not slouchy enough. It is good for these jeans, and my slouchy Eileen Fisher pants. But I don’t like buying/owning things that don’t work with EVERYTHING in my closet. You know? So, I’m still on the fence about it. It’s sheer, and you can see my black bra through it, which doesn’t really bother me much, it just means it will have to be layered over a cami when the weather cools down.
Everlane striped shirt | size small
Ok. Ugh. SO TORN on this one. If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that I keep trying to find a good striped shirt that I like, and that I like ON ME, and I never have. I seem to have concluded that I like the IDEA of a striped shirt, better than a striped shirt. But the more I look at these pictures, and think about how I could wear this, the more I think I like it. First, the slits on the side go up rather high, and do show some of my skin above my waistband. It’s not so much that it bothers me, but just FYI. It’s a bit longer in the back so I don’t have to worry about anything showing back there, but it is definitely a cropped shirt. Which is weird, because I have a short torso and everything is LONGER on me, but this one on the Everlane models looks “normal”. I don’t get it.
Anyway, I’m not sure if I’ll keep this or not. I’m thinking about it, because I can see myself wearing it sometimes. I don’t have to wear it all the time to get enough out of it, I’m okay with that now, but I want to be sure that if I have it, I’ll wear it, you know?
