EVERLANE AUTHENTIC STRETCH DENIM REVIEW

After hearing rave reviews from my sister about Everlane’s Authentic Stretch denim, I decided to head to their store and try it on for myself. As someone who generally has a hard time finding jeans that fit, I was overall pretty impressed by their products. In addition to their Authentic Stretch jeans, Everlane also has their original denim line they launched prior to Authentic Stretch. Between the two lines, I was definitely a bigger fan of their Authentic Stretch styles because they fit me better in the waist. Sharing my thoughts below on a few of the styles!

MY FIRST STITCH FIX BOX!

I’ve always wanted to try out Stitch Fix and recently decided to give them a try. Stitch Fix is definitely a nice alternative to shopping at stores in NYC, which can always a little bit crazy. (Those of you who live here know, going to Zara at 2pm on Saturday is pretty much always a bad idea because the dressing room lines are out of control!)

When I signed up for Stitch Fix, the first step in the process was filling out a style quiz to share the clothing sizes I generally wear and my style preferences. Definitely make sure you carve out some time to do the quiz portion because it’s probably took me about 15 minutes. Once I completed quiz, all I had to do was schedule my “fix” frequency. Not gonna lie, I have ton of clothes in my closet right now so I picked the quarterly frequency for the time being. However, I can still change the frequency or cancel whenever I want.

My box arrived about 2 weeks after scheduling the quiz. (So if you’re on a time crunch, this might not be the best option for you.) I received 5 items in my box out of which I legitimately liked 3 of them. However, I knew the FIT test would be the real determining factor in terms of what I ended up keeping.

IS OUTDOOR VOICES CURVE FRIENDLY?

While Outdoor Voices uses plus models such as,  Barbie Ferreira and Lena Dunham is known to wear the brand, I still couldn’t help but wonder is Outdoor Voices curve friendly? In some ways I think no because don’t offer plus sizes (hopefully they will in the future!), but in some ways in think yes. My initial experience with the brand was kind of meh. While many people I know rave about the brand, when I first tried on their famous tri-colored Springs leggings I was not in love. They are made out this fabric that is a little stiff and in my opinion kind of itchy so I wasn’t totally sold the way everyone else was. I definitely had to do somewhat of dance to get the leggings on period. However, this was about two years ago so recently I decided to give them another chance since they have been releasing some new products recently.

EVERLANE REVIEW - NEW ITEMS!

I'm so happy that Everlane finally opened up a store in NYC! Now I no longer have to deal with the hassle of buying online and then returning things later. In light of their store opening, I decided to write a fit review for their most recent product launches: denim shorts, $100 wrap dresses and white denim pants. Some of my readers asked for me to show pictures of me wearing the items in addition to writing reviews, so I'm excited to share in this post that I'm doing just that. (Always feel free to send suggestions because it helps me improve my website!)
