If You Have These in Your Closet, You Should Just Toss Them Right Now

If You Have These in Your Closet, You Should Just Toss Them Right Now

You’ve heard of the rule where at the beginning of the year where you turn all of your hangers one way, and once you’ve worn the item you place the hanger back the other way? No? Well, now you have. It sounds great in theory, but if you are even the slightest bit OCD, hangers in varying directions throughout the year may drive you insane. Truth is that you don’t need a system to know what you haven’t worn. Anyone else guilty of having a closet full of clothes and also choosing the same things? (read: the comfiest option) Now is the time to do an epic closet clean out and here are some basic rules you should follow…

THE PROBLEM WITH BALAYAGE

THE PROBLEM WITH BALAYAGE

We’ve all seen the Pinterest pictures and obsessed over those natural, loose, waves with sun kissed color. We take those photos, save them to our phone, and happily show them to our stylist.

Well, that’s because it’s not supposed to…

5 Places To Shop Online That You’ve Never Heard Of

5 Places To Shop Online That You’ve Never Heard Of

One of the most overwhelming things is to figure out where to shop online. I vividly remember the first time that I placed an order years ago, and I had so many concerns: How long will it take to arrive? Will the clothes even fit me? How expensive will it be to return these items? Will it even be worth it? I first employed the principle that I would only shop from places that allowed me to return in store. Figured if I was going to go to the store to buy something, I might as well get the item delivered to my home, try it on in the comfort of my bedroom, and then make that trip anyways in case it didn’t work out. 

Years later, I almost exclusively shop online and find it stressful to shop in stores! I don’t even know how to rummage through racks and want to know very clearly if my preferred item is in stock and whether or not it is available in my size. However, I understand that finding new places to shop can be tricky so I wanted to share some of my favorite spots with you guys and detail a few pieces I’ve gotten from them, what shipping and returns are like, etc. Here we go…
