Allume Review: How to Save Time Shopping with a Virtual Stylist

Between my birthday, my friend’s Bachelorette Party, Galentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day, it’s been a busy month of fun commitments with friends. The only problem? So many events mean A LOT of special outfits and not a lot of spare time to shop.

What’s a girl to do?

How I Stay on Trend By Renting from Haverdash

The start of a new year means hitting the refresh button. I know many of you have made New Year’s resolutions, but does that extend to your closet, too? If you’re anything like me, then you’re trying to cut the clutter and reduce the overwhelm which extends to my wardrobe, too.

Haverdash Review // Wearing Modcloth Mock Neck Woven Floral Dress

In 2018, I was first introduced to the concept of renting my wardrobe. And then in 2019, I met Haverdash. Haverdash is a newer clothing rental subscription service providing unlimited access to the latest looks from boutique brands like 1.State, cupcakes and cashmere, French Connection, BB Dakota, Comune, J.O.A., and many, many more. I love keeping up with the trends and mixing up my wardrobe, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased something to only wear it once or to find it hanging in my closet with the tags still on it. 

While I have worked to reduce these bad habits, renting my wardrobe helps me eliminate this problem completely. By borrowing the trend first, I can see if I actually like the style and try it with the rest of my wardrobe. It’s kind of like the revolving closet from Clueless that so many of us dreamed about when we were younger. (Who am I kidding, I still dream about this!)

If kicking off the New Year by renting a wardrobe with the help of Haverdash sounds up your alley, then read on for all of the details!

5 Easy to Create Carrie Bradshaw Costumes

I came down with a summer cold at the end of July, and to get me through my boring weekend of canceled plans, I began re-watching Sex and the City. I’ve always fancied myself a bit of a Carrie. While I don’t have the wild curly hair, a bad smoking habit of smoking, and have not been on nearly as many dates as Carrie Bradshaw, her creative fashion, carefree spirit, and freelance lifestyle have always appealed to me.

What I Cannot Wait to Wear this Fall // Fall Trends in Fashion

It feels a little strange talking about fall trends in fashion already. However, in typical Seattle form, the weather took a quick turn from hot and humid to rainy and stormy over the weekend. On Saturday night, we had a wild thunderstorm complete with a torrential downpour and lightning that lit up the sky like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Guess it’s not too early for fall fashion after all!
