Throwback Thursday: #Basic A(&)F

If at any point in the last 15 years, you told me that I would be making a ridiculous number of purchases at Abercrombie & Fitch in 2017, I would have laughed in your face. Like legit, rolling on the floor, so-hard-you-can't-even-hear-it type laughter. However, despite the fact that, up until this past winter, I associated Abercrombie solely with my high school/early college self and European tourists (though, to be fair, when I have found myself in the 5th Avenue store, I am 99% sure I'm the only NYC resident shopping there), I can say with complete and utter seriousness: they have some seriously good stuff out right now. And the price is on point.

While I could share a laundry list of recent purchases, in order to save some dignity in regards to my shopping habits, I would much rather use this post to spread the word that while Old Navy is currently providing me with the perfect fitted tank, A&F is killing it with their selection of bodysuits.

Now I know bodysuits are not #1 on the list of most universally loved items of clothing. In fact, I'd venture to say there is a lot of debate over their practicality (I vote a resounding "hellyeah!", but only if there are crotch snaps. No crotch snaps, no thank you), and many likely see no reason to wear them. But recently? I am hooked. The whole, not having to worry about a tucked-in top bunching up seems like one of the ultimate fashion hacks.

If you're into them too, feel free to shop my current faves here. Did I mention they. Are. All. On. Sale? (What are you waiting for? Jump to it!!!)

Fast Post Friday: Form Fitting Tank Edition

Happy Friday y'all!

It's summer in the city which means I'm out of work at 1pm and the only thing I'm more excited about is the tank top I'm wearing. It is from Old Navy, is currently priced at $6 (though I snagged mine for $5) and happens to be reigning supreme as my favorite body-hugging-base-layer tank of the moment.

I have recently been exploring the form fitting top/bodysuit & high waist bottom outfit combo, and these tanks perfectly fit the bill - pun intended. I originally only purchased two, but went back the next day and immediately nabbed two more. (Yes, they are that great.)

Shop them here and see a few of the ways I styled them below!

Trust, you'll tank me for this advice.

Fast Post Friday - Fabulous Flats(ish)

(Most) of my shoe collection. I am thankful for a massive closet in my tiny apartment.
I am a self-admitted shoe whore. I don't consider that a negative term in my book because dammit that is how much I love shoes. I rarely take cabs so that I can buy more shoes. I food shop exclusively at Trader Joe's so I can buy more shoes. I bring my lunch to work every. day. so that I can buy more shoes (also, it's healthier so double win there). You get the idea.

Priorities, amirite?

(And I'm not ashamed to shout it from the rooftops, your judgement does not faze me.)

So what does a girl with over 80 pairs (majority of them heels) do when she finds herself being wheeled out of her office on a stretcher after falling down the stairs and is told that she should only wear sneakers for at least the next six weeks? (Or rather, what does that girl do right after she whimpers to herself a little).

I'll tell you what I did, I bought a bunch of sneakers.

But of course that's not the point of this post (good job, Rebs), the point is more what I did after weeks of wearing sneakers: I bought a crap ton (read: 6 pairs) of flats/low heeled sandals on sale. (Is it just me or have there been a lot of good sales lately?)

Because clearly I was gonna cheat a little, and with mules/slides being the sandal of summer 2017, I felt it was my duty as a borderline-shopaholic, barely-blogger, full-time shoe whore to grab a few lot and share my picks with you! (Yes, all - what - three of you?)
