Affiliate Update

I’ll be the first person to tell you to try shopping secondhand before purchasing new, especially if you know what you’re looking for.

But in those cases where you want to purchase directly from a brand like, I don’t know, Everlane or Nisolo, now you can support me by clicking through from this blog. Yes, that’s right, I am officially an affiliate of both Everlane and Nisolo. What that means is that any purchases you make from those websites after accessing them here earns me a small commission.

But wait, isn’t this antithetical to a sustainability and minimalism-minded blog?

If I sat here and gave you a hard sell on shit you don’t need then yeah that wouldn’t be very cool. But that’s not what I’m doing. I’m sharing my experiences with the products from these brands, and letting you decide what you want to do with that information. So if you were planning to buy something and my reviews have helped you out, that's great.

But maybe after reading a review you decide to buy secondhand. Even better. I support this 110%. The first place I look for something is on the secondhand market.

Or maybe you don’t purchase anything at all. We should all have such restraint.

I have no ambition to make this blog into a living (that’s a whole ‘nother post), but I figured if I’m going to write down my thoughts about these brands for an audience, I might as well try and offset the overhead of running it. This is squarely a hobby - my hobby - and I have no real expectations for affiliate linking. Who knows how it will shake out, but I'm going to try it.

I'm still me.  

I've already bought from Everlane and Nisolo (first and secondhand). Some things were great and some didn't work out. I've always been honest about that and have no intention of changing.

I sincerely hope you do not find this alienating, but I get it if you do. I promise I’m still the same cat-loving style fiend you’ve come to know — just with affiliate links.

Here are some of my favorite Nisolo and Everlane items below:


Nisolo Chelsea Boots

The Nisolo Chelsea boots are one of two pairs of boots I wear in the cold months (not counting rain boots or hiking boots in this equation). My favorite detail is the triangle elastic. The almond toe also helps it from feeling as clunky as other Chelsea boot styles. They’ve held up through two seasons now and have many left to go.


Nisolo Serena Sandal

Ohhhh boy, these are hands down my favorite sandals. I have them in black (purchased secondhand) and the discontinued color pale honey (shown here) and they go with literally everything. Great for walking but stilll cute. Minimal but functional. I will sing their praises forever.


Everlane Oversized cashmere v-neck sweater

Oh boy, I’m not even going to bother linking all the items in this photo, but for the record it’s head-to-toe Everlane. This winter my favorite Everlane item was this slouchy cashmere sweater, which was the perfect combination of polished and relaxed. I fell in love with the oatmeal color, dropped shoulders, and soft v-neck.
