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.

Spoiler: it's a pretty solid dupe.
Banana Republic has a new look...& a new price. Is it worth it? From long coats & bomber jackets to leather belt bags, here are the stunning hits + total misses.
"I wanted to stop everything, shove it in my bag and run."
"That Girl" rocks her exercise dress, but are they made for us curvy girls too? I'm putting Outdoor Voices, Girlfriend Collective & Athleta to the test.
Squat tested...and approved.
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.
