Two is Better Than One
While putting together a photo for Instagram, I started realizing that I just don’t buy one of something…BUT I always buy 2 of the SAME EXACT thing!! Ha!!! Whether it’s a different color, shape, or size- I always buy double! But first, let me give you the same reasons (that I had to give to Peter) so you’ll agree that buying in two is a good thing too!
When I shop, I know EVERYTHING will go on sale! Depending on the occasion I’m shopping for (a party, dinner, dancing) and I know I need an outfit because it’s crunch time, then I’ll buy it for full price! EEKS!! But, if I really don’t need it- I know certain stores will go on sale in a couple of weeks! And I’m talking about items being markdown and then take an additional 30-40% off kind of sale! My go-to shops for work are Jcrew and Madewell because not only does everything go on sale within a couple of weeks but I’m a teacher and we get 15% off!!! Even MADEWELL!!! That was new to me!
So I try to buy pieces that I can layer and wear to work and then if I have to go somewhere right after, I can take off a layer and still be ready! I love buying sweaters or cardigans in multiple colors and prints because those are easy to throw on top of a dress or jeans. Even my statement pieces that are from Jcrew or Jcrew Factory- I will never EVER pay full price for a statement necklace so I’ll wait until it goes on a double sale since those jewels are pretty pricey! In Spring, I purchased four to five dresses from Madewell for $30 and it’s their staple dress (I know you’ve seen them) that can be worn multiple times in all seasons (pictures will be coming soon)! You just have to be patient and online 24/7 to know when their additional sales start…so keep refreshing!!
I also have an obsession with anything that’s lace!! Lace dresses, lace shorts, lace tops, lace bralettes…you name it, and I’ve got it! I’ll be posting and showing you the amazing pieces I have…IN DOUBLES TOO!! So stay tuned…there’s more to come!
