Ok y'all, I'm here to spill the tea on my first ever Everlane order.
I've been wanting to place an order from Everlane for a while now. I've been interested in shopping more sustainably, but it's a process. It's hard to quit Zara. When I was a university student, spending a lot of money on sustainable brands was just not in the cards. Now that I am a young working professional, slowly, I'm finding that I have more disposable income to vote with my dollar, and invest in clothing pieces. I've also been building my "work wardrobe" which is a work in progress and probably will be for a while.
Everlane is a brand that I've been fascinated by for a while. Not just because they make beautiful clothing, but also because of their brand ethos as well as their marketing. In terms of putting brand values at the forefront of your business, no one does it quite like Everlane.
A few things that make Everlane special (& demonstrates their values): they cast diverse models, they are transparent about their pricing, and their supply chain is both ethical and environmentally sound.
So, I finally pulled the plug on my first order. To be honest, I've been putting stuff in my cart for weeks now, and the duties & taxes scared me off at first. It's a shame that in Canada, sometimes we pay a lot in duties, but I would certainly rather pay the duties up front than when the delivery guy comes to the door and I'm hit with unexpected charges. Also, Everlane offers free international shipping on all orders over $100 USD, so definitely take advantage of that.
All in all, I was able to get a pair of pants, a turtleneck and a t-shirt for $173. Not terrible! The pants were $90, so that was the majority of my order. PS I am OBSESSED with these pants. I might have to order another colour (or two!).
So comfortable and really flattering. I'm 5'5, 140 ish pounds and I ordered a size 6. I could have probably ordered a 4 but I like a little room (for a food baby, ya feel?).
I got a medium in the t-shirt because I kind of have wide shoulders and I also like a "boxy" fit. I love the look of it when it's tucket into pants.
I also have my eye on these tread sneakers.
