    I actually bought that H&M dress earlier this week. It was the rare moment where I saw it featured somewhere online (possibly an instragram ad?) and HAD TO HAVE IT. Tried it on in-store, and it looked great. I’d suggest sizing up, and I’m considering adding a hook-eye closure to make it a bit less “boobish.” I’ve yet to try it on at home in the ways that I plan to style it, but I’m betting it will be a keeper. I plan to wear the heck out of it this holiday season.

    I bought the BB Dakota jacket a few weeks ago and I LOVE IT! Belle, how would you suggest styling it?

    A former coworker and I always joked about how uncool we felt when we tried to sell stuff at Buffalo Exchange! I much prefer selling to ThredUp, because even though they don’t pay much (neither does BE) at least I don’t have to waste a bunch of my time doing it. I also prefer shopping secondhand online, so it’s a win-win.
