The art of shopping at Forever 21 (when you are totally not 21)

The greatest myth about Forever 21 is that it’s target audience is 21 year old’s.  The clothes are really geared towards middle schoolers, who have limited budgets, questionable taste, and 4% body fat. So, when a certain old lady goes wandering in there, you think, what the fuck? I am about 20 years too old…

Ootd:  Dankeschön Nordstrom Rack! 

While avoiding my parenting and household duties this past weekend, I went to Nordstrom Rack for Clear the Rack (25% off all clearance items!)  After flipping through tons of crappy poly blouses and indescribably ugly sweaters, I found…. a size 8 Marc Jacobs silk dress $1200 marked down to $200 and possibly– dare I hope?– on clearance.  The…

Selling, buying, and rage at Thredup.com

As you may have gathered, I like to shop.  A lot.  Which means I end up with some things that don’t quite fit, that I wear once and am like, meh.  Not feeling it.  Most of these notquiteright items are new / nearly new and nice enough brands that I don’t want to just chuck them in…

Buy boots in May? Hell yea.

  Buying off-season is one of the best ways to get good stuff for a fraction of full retail price. This time of year, any remaining boots, sweaters, coats, etc that are still lingering in stores are at firesale prices.  Case in point:  4.Collective sweater dress from NM LastCall picked up this weekend.  It’s thick…

Outlet mall trickery / treats

Nothing fills my heart with joy like finding a buried Marc Jacobs dress, in my size, at 80% off (sorry kids, you’re number two on mommy’s joy list, well, top ten at least).  There are great online options but sometimes a girl just want to go pet the clothes.  Outlet locations are great for finding a fashion…

Online shopping for maximum badassery at TheRealReal

TheRealReal.com  Somewhere in Moscow, the beautiful girlfriend of an Oligarch sits upon a pile of designer shoes like Smaug the dragon.  After wearing them once, she is bored and they are last season so wearing them would be очень плохо.   She has her maid send them off to TheRealReal, an online consignment wonderland where un-rich girls…

Dress like you mean it-Know your size for online shopping

Oh, internet, sweet internet.  Is there anything more satisfying than shopping online when you have no money and are supposed to be working? If you are not a fan of shopping (wierdo) you can still build a functional adulty wardrobe without having to deal with annoying mall people. You have to do some leg work first,…

Dress like you mean it.

Dressing like you live in your car is not okay.  Clothing is one of the few perks of adulthood so don’t ruin it with a stained Bugs Bunny t-shirt and “yoga” pants.  I may be an epic failure at housekeeping, parenting, anger management, etc. but this bitch can dress!  And you can too.  No excuses….
