I’m posting two days in a row guys… I’m on a roll!
I’m starting to get back into the swing of things around here. Thanks for sticking with me! Here I am in the same outfit I bought yesterday. I wore it to work today and it was definitely a winner. Even the housekeeper in my office took note of it, lol. I felt 100% me in it and very comfortable. I’m wearing my new canvas bucket bag from Baggu here too. I love how simple and practical it is. I wanted a grown up bag that was easy to carry (ie. lightweight), and not leather (mainly because I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a bag and I couldn’t find a nice leather bag at a price I was willing to pay at the moment).
And now for the bad. I’m wearing those new Everlane square toe sling backs. I really wanted to like them but realized I liked them more in theory than in real life. They look modern and interesting in a grandma chic type of way. That square toe and round heel is a nice detail for sure. But there was a tiny rigid plastic thread sewn into the elastic at the heel area that scratched my skin every time I took a step. What kind of quality control is there at Everlane?! I think Everlane’s shoe department has aesthetics down but they could really take it up a notch if they just paid better attention to the quality and comfort of their shoes.
At least the return was easy. I dropped them off at my local Happy Returns location, just a few blocks away. There was no need to print out a label or re-pack the item. All I needed was my email address to get my money back instantly. The ease of returns could be a very dangerous thing!
