HOW I STYLE | Bralettes

Sunday, December 21, 2014

HIS Bralettes

Okay, fashion truth: I don't like bras. At all. No matter how they're made, if they're expensive or cheapies, if they're my actual bra size or the fake sizes we're all used to, I hate them. I only wear honest to goodness bras at work, or when it's really cold out. Otherwise, I'm sporting a bralette. And, yes, that means that a great majority of my posts are sans bra.

A lot of people struggle with styling bralettes. Are they underwear or are they outerwear? Is it tacky to expose them or is it chic?

GIFT GUIDE | The "I Don't Want Anything" Person

Friday, December 12, 2014

We all have that person in our lives who are the self proclaimed gift giver extraordinaire, who refuses to tell you what they want, yet, always gets you what you want.

We undoubtedly love these people, but man, they can get annoying. 

It's so difficult shopping for these people due to their refusals, so either you don't get them anything, or you get them the wrong things. Don't get them the wrong things!

I've compiled a guide of a few items that will hit the nail on the head when it comes to these kinds of people.

Gift Guider Gift Guide

1) Notebooks-- Muji has really substantial and affordable notebooks that will definitely prove useful for anyone. The multipacks are great--the recipient will be covered for the rest of the year, as well as having a choice of colors to use and abuse as they see fit.

2) Blankets-- A blanket is an awesome gift because they're warm, comfy, and they really show you care! This tartan one from Bed, Bath and Beyond is huge and stylish so it can double as decor.

3) Customized Phone Case-- I love giving people one of a kind, customized phone cases. This one is by Treat, by Shutterfly, and they have tons of  designs to chose from, with different colors! The coolest thing about Treat is that they are a multifaceted site--they do everything from physical cards for every occasion, to gifts, like mounted photos, mugs and canvases, to e-cards! You can schedule when you want the cards delivered in advance for some stress free gift giving, which is an A+ in my book!

4) Pens--This may seem like a last minute, bad parent stocking stuffer, but in reality, for the right person, pens are the perfect gift. My certain someone is a pen lover and a pen lover is also, unfortunately, a pen loser. With the affordability and array of colors to choose from from Muji, it's a no brainer to drop a couple pens into a stocking.

5) Large Scarf--I don't think you could ever go wrong with a basic scarf. I live in the Midwest and it's gets bone chillingly cold right after Christmas (sometimes before!), so a good, large, warm scarf is the perfect gift to give anyone. Like the blanket, is keeps you warm and shows you care!

When it comes to these kinds of people, productivity and usefulness are key--they're never going to tell you what they really want, so opt for the convenient and practical!

Do you have any tips for gift giving  for the "I Don't Want Anything" person in your life?

#LovePreloved: Tips for Buying Secondhand

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

Vinted has launched a campaign, #LovePreloved, a movement to spread the love and idea behind buying secondhand, and to dispel the myths around it. I'm happy to be apart of this campaign and to spread the word and love about preloved and secondhand clothing!

In my years of buying secondhand, I've learned the tried and true ways of buying. I've already made a guide to thrifting, and now, I'm going to tackle Vinted.

Communication is key for scoring deals on Vinted! 

1) Message the buyer using the "I Want It" button, don't use comments. Comments tend to get drowned out by other notifications, so using the "I Want It" button sends a message to the seller, so you're more likely to get a response!

2) Use the "Make an Offer" under the "I Want It" option to start a negotiation! You can offer a price, and the seller can accept or counter offer.

3) Another way to score is to use the search option and refine using relevant filters to find your perfect item. Simply type in what you're looking for, like "wide brim hat", then refine!

It's super easy to score treasures on Vinted. This hat is my favorite and most worn item I've bought from Vinted, and it was a little over a dollar. It was a fantastic score!

November Wishlist

1) Cable knit sweater// 2)Chunky Scarf//3) Bodycon dress//4) Tan wide brim hat//5) Heeled buckled boots
6) Plaid infinity scarf// 7) Non black loafers// 8) Slouchy beanie

Sorry for the delay on my monthly wishlist! 

This month marks the beginning of the busy season, and I want to be comfortable, but also stylish. This month, I'm lusting over cable knit sweaters and scarves for that necessary warmth (it's already snowed here!). I want a body con dress to layer under overly large sweaters, and a tan hat to lighten up any outfit. For the ultimate comfort, I'm going for a nice slouchy beanie and some loafers (preferably not in black), and to add to my collection of black boots, I'm in need  of a pair of slightly heeled, cut out buckled boots.

Happy shopping!

#LovePreLoved: The Secondhand Movement

Monday, November 03, 2014

Vinted has launched a campaign, #LovePreloved, a movement to spread the love and idea behind buying secondhand, and to dispel the myths around it. I'm happy to be apart of this campaign and to spread the word and love about preloved and secondhand clothing!

I am a secondhand lover. Not only is buying secondhand cheaper, it also breathes new life into old garments. I almost exclusively buy secondhand.

The number one thing that people ask me about my shopping is "why?"
Why do you shop secondhand?
