It’s Not Me, It’s You

The Limited and I are taking a break. We’ve been together for several years but lately, I feel like I’m investing more in our relationship and receiving less in return. Since moving away from my hometown last year, our long-distance relationship has had its ups and downs. We keep in touch online, but mostly I receive a bunch of email asking for money. When we do connect, I’m increasingly unsatisfied with my experience. Ultimately, time away from one another is probably best for both of us.

It doesn’t help that I’ve had my eye on Everlane for some time now. Nothing has happened yet, but I can safely say I’m in the infatuation stage. It’s not just about looks, though the 100% silk button-ups and casual-chic tanks are extremely attractive. I feel like Everlane is really honest with me about their business practices and pricing strategies. I don’t feel pressured to be with them, and instead receive messages from time to time letting me know I’m special.

I guess I’m in a different place now than I was, and The Limited and I seem to be growing apart. I still like clean, classy and sophisticated, but I’m also looking for something easy, simple and straight-forward. I don’t want to be overwhelmed with options or have to play games to get what I want. I’m ready for something new, and I’m more excited than sad about this realization. 

I might have to make my move with Everlane soon. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Disclaimer: Everlane did NOT pay me for this post. You can bet The Limited didn’t, either.

    I’ve never shopped at either store. I actually need to stop shopping in general.

      Ha! You and me both.

    Sometimes you just have to make a change…am I right? I may be a guy, but I do know a little bit about shopping. :)

      Yep, change is good. I placed my first order with Everlane on Friday so hopefully they’re everything I’ve made them out to be. :)
