Quince Cropped Mongolian Cashmere Cardigan Review

It is officially pumpkin spice season, and despite the still-warm weather, fall is around the corner. While I wasn’t impressed by Quince’s famous $50 cashmere sweater (reviewed here), I’ve had great luck with their other knit pieces.

Polene Ilo Tote Review

Early this summer, I immediately placed a pre-order for Polene’s newest tote – the Ilo – when it was announced. I was hopeful to finally find a low-profile, structured yet lightweight tote that could fit my sizable work laptop. It arrived in July, and I’ve been using it…

In the last few years, brands have been releasing washable silk fabrics, touting the best of all worlds. Not only do you get a silky, luxurious drape but also a low-maintenance piece that can be machine washed with your standard cotton et. all garments. I generally lean towards…

Quince Cotton Boyfriend Sweater Review

If you’ve read my prior Quince reviews, you know that I have mixed feelings about their famous $50 cashmere sweaters. And in the past, I’ve also had not-so-great experiences with cotton sweaters in general. My cotton sweaters of yore were J.Crew sweaters that had a tendency to bag…
