Hi hi! Okay, so I want to start by saying, I know I have been sharing some higher price point items lately and I’d like to open up on this. I sold a ton of things in my closet on Depop this winter and decided to use that money towards a few nicer things that will last me forever. Highly recommend doing this if you’re in a closet rut. In the past year of cleaning out my closet, I’ve realized that quality, uniqueness, and fit reign supreme for me, however, I fully understand how buying $300 tops on the reg isn’t sustainable unless you’re a celebrity. Lol.
I wanted to open up about this because I never want you to think that what I share is unattainable. I work really hard but also live in a very expensive city, so it’s not a normal thing to be shopping all of the time. Especially if we want to save up for our future dream home…
I definitely go through little phases of when I get into invest mode and then I put in on pause, and I float back on down to reality. So, I wanted to start this monthly post where I can share with you the affordable finds I come across, but with things that are both realistic, yet lasting.
To be totally honest with you, I’ve given up on Zara. I’m sorry if you’re sad to hear that, I used to do little roundups here and there, but for a few reasons, I’ve decided to part ways. We share a love of many other easy on the wallet retailers, though (based on my Instagram story survey I sent out this week!).
I look to Reformation a lot for tops and dresses (they get me with all their square neck and smock things), Everlane for basics, Cuyana, Aritzia, Madewell, Massimo Dutti, The Outnet for designer sales, & Other Stories, Modern Citizen, and Mango.
