This year for my birthday, I got a new best friend. Just kidding! Sort of... What I'm referring to is my beautiful new Everlane Petra Tote. I'm pretty much in love with its clean, classic lines and rich cognac colour. It was a fairly extravagant gift, and I felt a bit bashful receiving it, but it will be my go-to bag for many years to come.
I'm pretty much in love with Everlane EVERYTHING these days. For Jason's birthday, to give his fall wardrobe a little update, I ordered him this, this and this. They were all very well received :)
The coolest part about shopping at Everlane is that they pride themselves on total total transparancy. They literally break down the cost of materials, labour and transport, then give you the 'real cost' and then their marked up retail cost. So you know exactly what the profit margins are. It's so dignified and honest! They also promote total transparancy of their factories and have an entire page on their website dedicated to showing the consumer where their products are made. I love this about Everlane! As a shopper, it just feels so good to know that you are supporting an ethical company that treats its suppliers and clients with respect. And they've done this all without sacrificing syle! Heck, they even won Jason over :)
