We’re firm believers in cost-per-wear, in the curation of smaller, highly functional wardrobes. We believe not only in buying clothes you love, but buying pieces that work for your current lifestyle. The problem, of course? Finding these style pieces. Happily, this is where we can help. We’re constantly testing out fashion products (and sometimes these tests last years) to see if a product is, actually, worth the cost. So if you’ve ever wondered if you should buy that Burberry trench coat, if Louboutin pumps have been magically engineered to be comfortable, why Golden Goose sneakers are so expensive (or if there’s a Golden Goose dupe that’s just as good?), or even if that cheap Amazon bathing suit is actually — surprise! — a good buy…you’re in the right place. Furthermore, if ever there’s an outfit piece you find yourself eyeing up, dreaming about, or constantly wondering if it is as good as you think it could be…let us know. I guarantee others are likely thinking the same thing, and we’d be happy to put it to the test. 

High-quality, flattering & versatile, the Naadam Cashmere Cropped Cardigan is in our forever closet & on nonstop rotation. Here are 3 reasons we love it.
Four months ago, during a Naadam sale, I took the plunge and ordered this Cashmere Ribbed Cropped Cardigan. While not a long cardigan girl, I'm 100% a fan of the cropped cardigan, even more when worn as a top. If the word cropped scares you, do not worry. You won't show your midriff unless you want to. My...
The best & most unexpectedly wonderful shoes for spring are a sweet pair of Blundstone original chelsea boots! They'll bring out your inner puddle-jumping kid, too.
It’s springtime; the birds are singing louder, the sun feels warmer, and there is increasingly more light in the sky with each passing day. You’re about to go outside to soak up some much needed vitamins after the winter, and as you head to the door you slip on your favorite pair of boots. BOOTS? Surely, you meant sandals. Nope! Believe...
Two washable silk pajama sets, one review. Lunya vs. Quince. A postpartum mom puts 'em to the test. Spoiler alert: both short sets are really good...
Washable silk. Two words that immediately grab my attention. I’m not a fan of getting things dry cleaned -- or anything that requires fuss, really. If it can withstand the delicate cycle in a laundry mesh bag, I’m interested. But when the word “washable” is right there in the description? Sold! Especially if it’s followed up with a luxurious...
As my postpartum frustration w/ underwear mounted, I kept returning to the word "whipped." Yep, that's how this underwear feels. Like a delicious freaking bowl of whipped cream.
Have you ever slipped into something so incredibly comfortable that you walked around your house saying "I never want to take this off" over and over and over? You fill your coffee cup and ponder in the morning light if you've known anything else so soft. Surely you've said "oooh this is amazing!" about countless other clothing items before,...
I always reach for my Anine Bing olive green utility jacket when putting together outfits. The fit, the feel, the details, the versatility -- but is worth the price?
This year, I'm trying to be more aware of the pieces I grab all the time for styling. You may know at this point how much I adore styling up a pair of shoes or jeans a bunch of ways -- it's my absolute favorite thing to write about and do here. But then it dawned on me (and...
I used to shiver a little when I heard the word "tights" (nylons, pantyhose, or stockings depending on how you know them). Immediately my mind goes to being a young girl having to wear them under my Easter dress. I always felt like I had to be very proper while wearing a pair -- any playtime, sudden movement, or...
The Glory! My butt looks gooood in this loose leg fit that I pretty much only want to wear right now. It was love at first try-on with this pair of denim.
Last month I went on the hunt for responsibly made jeans -- see the post here -- in hopes of finding my long-awaited perfect pair of jeans after pregnancy. While I became a fan of all three brands that I tried (Boyish, AGOLDE and Re/Done), there were none quite as incredible as the '90s High Rise Loose Fit Jean...
Cost-per-wear helps us stick to a budget + reduces waste by cutting down on unnecessary purchases. Shopping with cost-per-wear in mind is the 1st step in creating a closet that truly works.
We’ve been talking about cost-per-wear at The Mom Edit for more than a decade now. It’s the simple calculation used to figure out if a piece is, quite simply, worth the cost. The concept of something being “worth the cost” is very subjective and, ultimately, a deeply personal one. It depends on a person’s lifestyle, their vibe, their values, and how...
Chanel. TUMI. Louis Vuitton....a list of our readers' most highly recommended, splurge-worthy bags, where to shop them & the styles we're eyeing up.
We recently asked our Facebook Insiders group which handbags they've splurged on that — even after much use — were still 100% worth that splurge. The responses were predictably varied, but there were a few bags that rose to the top with numerous rave reviews. The Most Popular Bags Worth The Splurge (According To Our Readers) Spoiler: The top choice...
TikTok is a force to be reckoned with. Apparently, crossover leggings hug the body making you look trimmer + curvier. So, The Unicorn Of Leggings? I had to find out.
The wonderful world of TikTok has really proven itself for setting trends. Thanks to the social media platform, roller skating became cool again, everyone learned how to make bread during lockdown, and we're all wondering how we survived this far without sea shanties on our playlists -- among so many other things. Love it or hate it, TikTok has...
The GREAT. baggy cropped sweatpants have become some of my fav lounge-to-streetwear pants. So I'm here to find out if their loungewear is worth the coin.
You may have caught my post last month where I styled up my favorite slouchy sweatpants. I adore them. I didn't want to at first, but now they've become one of my favorite lounge-to-streetwear pieces (that's a new term I'm coining for 2021, heh). I love the (gosh dang it) sold-out pants so much though, that I wanted to...
Halfdays offers women's ski jackets & snow pants in vibrant colors; no more 'shrink it and pink it'. Even more, they're woman-owned & committed to sustainability.
I recently came across Halfdays ("outdoor apparel for the modern woman") and was immediately impressed with their aesthetic. Skiing (like many other sports) tends to cater to men, and the gear made specifically for women often feels like an afterthought. I once rented some mens' performance skis in Utah...simply because (according to the guide), the men's skis were...
Does it surprise anyone that my most-worn shoes of winter and the stars of this "Worth It" post are made by my beloved comfort shoe brands UGG, Dansko and Birkenstock? Supportive, warm, comfy, cozy,and cute...or at least cute enough for my picky feet that are constantly screaming “Wear what is soft! Wear what is comfortable! Wear what makes us...
rag & bone faux jeans joggers sound too good to be true: joggers that look like jeans & feel like sweatpants. (Exactly what Stay-At-Home life needs.)
People have been raving about these rag & bone "jeans" (are they joggers? are they sweatpants?) SO much so, that Laura and I both decided we had to try them for ourselves. I mean, they sound too good to be true: joggers that look like jeans and feel like sweatpants. (Exactly what Stay-At-Home life needs.) rag & bone Miramar...
Five clothing buys where cost-per-wear is 100% worth the investment. Think UGGs, MOTHER Denim, J.Crew coats, Vuori joggers...solid.
There were a few favorite purchases I made in 2020 that were 100% worth the investment. Clothing pieces I would pay full price for knowing how much use I got out of them and will continue to get for (literally) years to come. Featured outfit above: boots | dress | leggings | moto jacket 5 Fashion Finds That...
