EVERLANE REVIEW - FALL ITEMS!

This fall Everlane has had a bunch of new product releases so I decided to go check them out and see which ones were the most petite friendly. Out of all their new releases I have to say their new bodysuits are my favorite! They are so incredibly soft and comfortable. Keep on reading to see all the items I tried on.

REFORMATION SWEATERS REVIEW

When I went to the Reformation store recently, much to my surprise I found out that they have sweaters. Unfortunately, they don’t carry petite sizes yet for sweaters. However, I did find that some of their sweaters worked for my short torso. Sharing all my thoughts on the styles I tried on below and crossing my fingers they’ll add petites at some point too.

WHERE TO FIND THE COMFIEST, PETITE-FRIENDLY LOUNGE PANTS

Recently one of my readers asked where to buy petite lounge pants. I have to admit it’s not a category I had shopped for in a while so I decided to order styles from some of my go-to petite brands like Old Navy and Athleta. I also tried out some lounge pants from L.L. Bean, which I completely forgot carries petite sizes. Keep reading all the way to the end because there’s a wild card option listed :)

REFORMATION FALL PETITES REVIEW

Over the past few years, Reformation has been on again off again with their petites line. Happy to see they are on again for the time being. Being able to buy petite sizes, means that you can actually find pants and midi length dresses/skirts that are the proper length. In this post, I’m reviewing their fall petite styles as well as a few petite-friendly tops from their main line.

PETITE BRANDS YOU'VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF

Does anyone else ever get in a shopping rut? Lately, I’ve been wondering where else to shop for petite-clothing. Generally I stick to the same brands that have worked for me in the past, but lately I haven’t been feeling as excited when I’ve gone shopping or looked online.

So I decided to order from new brands I had never tried before to see if there was anything good out there I was missing out on. The four brands that I ordered from were: Fashion Union, Petite Studio NYC, Monteau and Love Scarlett.

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.
