Everlane Review: a review of the pieces I’ve purchased myself

Everlane Review: Everlane How to Wear; Everlane What to Buy; What is Everlane known for?

I’ve written a couple Everlane reviews before but I was sent the pieces for those posts. Today I want to talk you through the Everlane pieces I’ve purchased with my own money. All four of the pieces I’m going to talk about today I purchased second hand and two are no longer available on the Everlane website. I think the review has merit in spite of that because it speaks to the quality of Everlane garments in general. So, that said, let’s get into my third Everlane review!

Slow Fashion Summer – An Update

A little over a month ago I committed to the Slow Fashion Summer for 2019. I wrote about it in some detail here so I’ll try not to repeat myself. Collaction created the challenge, in which participants buy no new clothing (second hand or swapped is ok) for three months. The challenge this season runs from June 21st to September 21st. Their aim was to get 10,000 participants. Currently there are 14,487 people taking part.

Something like this was what I had in mind. I never pulled the trigger for a few different reasons. I like Artizia’s clothes but I think they are ridiculously over priced, sometimes I have trouble with the sizing (big boob problems, le sigh), and most recently, they are not ethical.

I love second hand shopping. I’m not an expert but I have snagged a few amazing pieces over the years. I also live in a remote area where the options for shopping second hand are somewhat abysmal so I’ve done a lot of research about second hand shopping online. Today I am going to share the fruits of my labour with you, my lovely readers! Here are my favourite online consignment stores and thrifting options!
