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. 

When it's hot, I transform into a wannabe sun goddess & float around in Emerson Fry caftans with an Averna cocktail in hand. Irresistible summer must-haves.
We're already living our best Retired Old Lady life (and we're OK with that).
There are so many ways to style a pair of slouchy knee-high boots! (Think: wool coats, maxi dresses, midi skirts, oversized sweaters.) Instant fall outfit must-have.
Skinny jeans make a HUGE comeback for this one. (And we love it.)
Why do I love this Helmut Lang midi dress so much? The fit, the fabric, the style, the collar, the deep V necklace & the versatility all got me hooked. It's the whole package + definitely worth the cost.
Upgrading your closet basics? This simple yet versatile dress fits the bill.
Are you seeing these sales?! Flowy midi dresses, walkable sandals & deisgner jeans (never enough denim) from Nordstrom, Gap & more that are perfect for the end of summer.
These high-end outfit basics are worth the investment.
10 tennis shoes more exciting than Golden Goose (or GG dupes). All have a hefty dose of under-the-radar cool that speaks to the success of Golden Goose sneakers. Think: Vans, adidas, P448, Veja...
They're not all that.
There’s 1 Vuori lounge set in particular that is so useful, I can’t remember the last trip I took without it. It'll likely come as no surprise that half of this set is a pair of Vuori Performance Joggers.
We love us some Vuori around here. Not only are all the editors on the team huge fans, but most of our partners swear by the stuff, too. So much so that Vuori finally took notice, which is why you'll see The Mom Edit doing fairly frequent collaborations with the brand. It's a dream. That said, this is not one...
I wear a lot of sweatshirts, so purchasing designer sweatshirts make sense for me + my closet. Anine Bing's graphic tops last through washes & wear beautifully, plus they're stylish + cool so I reach for them often.
There are few designer names I get very excited about. I'm usually a piece-driven shopper and couldn't care less about who made it. But just about every single piece of Anine Bing's clothing line is so my vibe. Her designs are edgy, chic but casual, and sporty (with some menswear-style, too). I love. The Case For Anine Bing Graphic...
After spending a year wearing & washing & sleeping in both Quince's 100% washable silk pajamas AND a similar pair from Lunya (also 100% washable silk), I now have some strong opinions.
I'm a pretty die-hard silk fan. Not satin, or silky or silky-ish(?) fabrics, but I'm talking real, 100% silk. Real silk thermoregulates, and I've found that real silk keeps me cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Silk is a natural fabric, which means that -- unlike satin or other polyester-based fabrics -- it biodegrades, and is...
There is ONE winter shoe I'm obsessed with & wear all season long, over + over + over: No.6 shearling-lined clog boots. Perfect winter shoe FOUND.
I'm a serious shoe collector...and a believer that the shoe makes the outfit. So I keep plenty of shoes in my regular rotation. I rarely wear the same pair over and over, and I have the worst time packing because I want to bring ALL the shoes. I haven't had to answer one of those deserted island questions in...
The temps have finally started to dip, I find myself making warm breakfasts before our chilly walks to school, and we're all excitedly watching snow reports (with crossed fingers) for an epic ski weekend. It's time for cozy sweaters. As I've mentioned before, I'm a pretty die-hard cashmere girl. I have really sensitive skin, so I find most other wool sweaters...
I've been lusting over the Stuart Weitzman 5050 OTK boots & I decided to take the plunge. But I also got a pair of Nine West Over-the-Knee Boots. So...the splurge or the steal? Are Stuart Weitzman's 5050 boots worth the price?
I can't tell you how long I've been lusting after these Stuart Weitzman 5050 Over-the-Knee Boots. It's been years, my friends... years. That price tag, though... I mean, I've bought what I consider to be "expensive" boots before, but they've always been on crazy sale (or on eBay). But the reviews are soooo good. Aaand that's pretty much been...
Enter: the sexy turtleneck sweater. It's warm, it's comfy, it's just a *little* sexy. It's an easy way to show some skin & it comes in a bunch of colors.
When you live somewhere as cold as I do, you need to come up with...creative ways to pull off a "sexy" winter look. (Ha. Sexy and winter.) I used to wear little sequin dresses when we'd go out and just commit to freezing, but...yeah, I'm not doing that anymore (going out, that is -- wearing sequin dresses will never...
