I do most of my clothing shopping at thrift stores and yard sales. I love the eclectic pieces that I find. However, it is rare that I buy shirts this way. I've been getting frustrated with the amount of skirts and bottoms that I have collected without tops to pair. I'd bought a few blank tees from Target a couple of months ago, but they are a little too casual. It's always a bit of a challenge to find a nice fitting t-shirt. One that is good quality and won't be ruined after a few washes, is soft to the touch, fits me in the shoulders and isn't so tight to my skin. I decided to splurge a little bit and buy a week's worth of t-shirts from Everlane.
I have loved their business model from the first time I discovered them in 2012. They believe in radical transparency and under each item of clothing they break down all the costs. They also show you the factory where their clothes are made. Talk about bringing humanity to business. All too often I do not question what is going on behind the scenes of the businesses that I support with my purchases.
Not only am I personally raving about the shirts that I bought, but I have been getting a lot of compliments on them. Who knew a simple white T-shirt could make such an impression! I was out in a large group of people on Friday. I had five women reach out to feel the fabric of my shirt.
My two favorite shirts were
The Cotton Tank, $18 and
They are just the perfect things to throw on with shorts, with a skirt, with a pair of jeans. These shirts are the best women's t-shirts that I can find. The quality is worth every penny and I can feel good about who I am doing business with. Even these little things lend themselves to "being a heart."
