One of my favorite colors to wear is black. It’s such a versatile color! It can look plain if you wear it by itself, so what I like to do is add a pop of color. Since I’m a big fan of capsule wardrobes and keep a capsule in my closet year-round, I always include at least one black top or bottom (preferably both) in my capsule.
I splurged on these Everlane loafers in because I have been needing a pair to wear to work and on the weekends. I chose the Everlane brand because they are committed to ethical fashion and are transparent with how they price their products. Not to mention, THE CLOTHES & SHOES. Basics and classics are really where it’s at with Everlane. They sell high quality shirts for really affordable prices. (Like the Cotton V Tee at $15). They sell some luxury pieces too, like the cashmere cardigan! They also have the Modern Loafer, which is a more casual shoe. Since I needed a loafer that I could wear either dressy or casual, I chose the Modern Point Loafer.
When I’m getting ready to buy an investment piece to add to my capsule wardrobe, I like to research about it on the internet. I went to Google and typed in “Everlane Review”. I found reviews on several blogs. I had read on Everlane.com to get a half size bigger than what you normally wear. To be safe, I bought a size 9 and a 9 1/2. I figured I could return which one doesn’t fit. The 9 was way too tight. The 9 1/2 was still snug when I put them on, but I had read that the leather would loosen up the more you wear them. I wore them around the house on the carpet and a little while later they loosened up more. They felt comfortable then. I wore them to work yesterday and within the day they were broken in. I’m SO glad I bought them!
