    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?

  3. Monica T says:

    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.

    Thanks for The NY Times article about women working in under challenging circumstances. This story on MMLaFleur about Amanda Nguyen is inspiring and amazing:

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
