Fashion style for summer

Having heard so many good things about Everlane, it seemed almost irresponsible not to place an order for some of their much hyped cashmere sweaters and delicate silk blouses.

I placed my order through a third-party mail forwarding service, Shipito, which provides you with a mailbox for use when ordering from the United States (and is good for purchases from Zara, Cos, and the like). I’ve used Shipito approximately 20 times over the last two years and haven’t had a single issue – an email alert is received when a package arrives in your mailbox, and you’re given multiple shipping options from which you can select. I generally opt for DHL, as it’s fast, comes with a tracking number, and is generally well-priced; especially if you are consolidating shipments (note – you will need to upgrade your account for that feature). On average, I’ve found that my parcels are received from Everlane within 3 days of placing the order.

Of course I couldn’t resist placing a cheeky order from Sezane, after essentially swooning over their Fall Pre-Collection Lookbook. I kept it fairly edited; at this point I tend to know which styles and fabrications will work for me. And it struck me when I sat down to analyse each of these new additions, that I generally only had good things to say. A rarity for brands that I only have access to via online order. So without further ado, let’s dive

Everlane’s silk blouses are a loose, slim fit, and generally true to size. I’m a small AU 8 (US 4) and I purchased mine in the size S, which was the perfect fit for me. Loose through the body, and just so through the sleeves, it is comfortable and doesn’t feel as though there is too much fabric – oft an issue with the sizing of the Equipment silk blouses. If you’re wondering about sizing, the size small measures 47cm underarm to underarm and is 65cm long.
