Everlane patent pointed slides

 

I ordered these black patent pointed slides from the Everlane E2 Capsule Collection about a month ago and I have one word for them: LOVE!  I’ve actually been looking for a good pair of slides for some time now so when I spotted these I knew I had to give them a try.  I ordered them in my usual size 8 and they fit perfectly.  Sort of like Cinderella’s feet in her glass slippers, I think!   I felt like like the shoes were custom made for my feet when I slipped them on.  I walked around the house a little bit when I got them and they were comfortable out of the box.  More party shoes than a walking shoe, however, these slides really make a statement with its cool sharp lines and black patent leather. I wore them the first time with the E2 tank ribbed dress and a second time with the E2 Go Weave pants (which I’ll review shortly!)  The slides cost $145 which are not exactly inexpensive but given that they are 100 percent Italian leather, made in Italy, and are very well made, I consider them a good deal.  Did you buy these Everlane slides? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts on them.

The Perfect LBD

Hi there! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been on board and it feels so good to be writing again.  It truly does. For the last few weeks I’ve been wanting to share with you some of my fun finds, especially from the Everlane E2 Capsule collection that they put out a couple months ago. The E2 collection is comprised of several stylish pieces, from pants to tops, to shoes to dresses that are meant to be mixed and matched. The appeal to me was the black and white colors and the simplicity of the clothes. The styles are bold and fun yet also border on classic and are all very well tailored.  For today’s post I’m spotlighting the ribbed tank dress from the E2 collection.  This dress has become one of my favorites for the following reason: it fits like a glove without feeling uncomfortable.  In fact, it’s so comfortable and easy to move in (think: dancing, partying, sitting…you get the picture…)  Also, the ribbed dress just feels well made; the material has the right amount of stretch and hugs the body in all the right places. I love how this dress can be dressed up with the right accessories…big bold earrings and a bright scarf, or dressed down with a pair of Keds and a beanie.  I wore it to my boyfriend’s office holiday party earlier this month and I was able to have fun, eat, drink and mingle without worrying about the dress riding up or any of those “issues” that we ladies sometimes have when it comes to party clothes.  On me, the dress hits just below the knee (I’m 5’5″ for reference), and the size Small fits me perfectly.  I’m usually a size 4 in dresses, size 27 in jeans/pants, and I usually get a size Medium in Everlane tops.  But for this dress, the size Small fit me just right.

The price of the dress, a cool $98, is also quite reasonable, for all the mileage I’m going to get from it!

It’s Hot!

Seems like the hot weather has been going on forever here in Southern California. It’s been in the upper 90’s for the past 2 weeks now but thankfully, we’re going down to the upper 80’s (!) by next week.  For me, this hot weather means wearing as little as possible while at the same time trying to maintain some sense of style.  When I was looking at the Everlane website a couple weeks ago I spotted this smart, striped sun dress which was pretty much calling my name.

And what a bargain too at only $38.  Sadly, this dress is no longer on their site which tells me they’ve sold out but this short dress is available, as is this muscle tank dress.  Everlane can be hit or miss at times but this dress was definitely a hit!
