Love clothing but hate to shop? You are not alone. I can’t tell you how times I’ve heard my friends and readers complain about shopping.

It’s just too much trouble…

There aren’t enough hours in the day…

My feet hurt…

I feel you. I used to love spending a Saturday at the mall, hunting for the perfect piece of clothing. But lately? Meh, I’d rather brunch with friends or celebrate fall. That said, I still love new clothes! So here’s a thought: how about hunting for bargains from home?

Twice is an online retailer that buys and sells secondhand clothing, shoes, and handbags. The concept may sound familiar — last year I introduced you all to a similar site called thredUP — so yes, it’s obvious I have a problem and love online consignment shops!! Twice has a similar feel with a ton of super cute, super affordable consigned items.

Twice: a secondhand clothing store online

Because I’ve been known to strategize my shopathons, I decided to take a similar focused approach to shopping at liketwice.com. After quickly browsing their new items in my size (kudos to Twice’s filtering features), I decided to focus in on brands I like and know fit me. LOFT, J.Crew, GAP, Banana Republic. All my girls were there, in one place!

The striped tee I’m wearing is J.Crew ($12.95) and the grey blazer is Silence + Noise, a line from Urban Outfitters ($18.95). I’ve actually been on a quest for a grey blazer, so this was a major score! Everything arrived in the cutest packaging and felt brand new.

So to my readers who are too busy/tired/uninspired to hit up the mall this weekend, I recommend checking out Twice!

Wish List Wednesday: Sonix Phone Cases

October 22, 2014

I may be on the cutting edge of fashion, but when it comes to tech gadgets, I’m slow to jump on the latest trends. My iPad is a first generation — as in, Apple has stopped supporting app updates because that thing is so ancient. And my cell phone? Don’t worry, I not rocking a Razor or anything (remember these?), but I did finally upgrade my iPhone to a 5S last week (get crazy!).

This means I’m mainly just excited to find a new case! Because sometimes it’s all about the accessories.

In my quest for the perfect phone case, I stumbled upon Sonix tech cases. Gosh, these cases are cute. And durable. I ended up ordering this one, but seeing as how we change jewelry daily, a solid rotation of cases is necessary, too, right?

Is It a Skirt… or a Dress?

October 20, 2014

Date night: flippy grey skirt

Today on SMT, we’ll be playing one of my favorite games: Is it a skirt… or a dress?!

At first glance, this appears to be a flippy skirt (made out of sweatshirt material, so comfy!) worn on the last warm evening of October. Buuuut…

Le Tote dress (worn as a skirt)

It’s actually… a dress! Funny story: I put my Le Tote membership on hold three months ago, so I was super confused last week when I received a shipping notification that my next tote was on its way. Huh? I guess my membership automatically renewed after the three month hold period. Oh shucks! [insert heavy sarcasm]. I guess I’ll have to do Le Tote again (if you haven’t tried it, do it! — Le Tote is like Netflix for clothing).

Here’s the dress in, you know, actual dress form.

French Connection Lucy Flare Dress | Le Tote

Totally cute. In fact, if you work with me, you’ll spot me wearing this as a dress with a chambray shirt underneath one day this week. I love a versatile piece of clothing — especially if you’re not a huge shopper or are trying to spend less on clothing. Something that can be worn two ways is basically the equivalent of buy one, get one free!

Here are a few more snaps of my date night outfit — I wore this to my husband’s birthday dinner. Nothing says “happy birthday” like “honey, can you take some outfit pics first???” (thanks, babe!). I’d say now it’s officially time to bust out the tights!

Pop of color: grey skirt, black sweater, coral purse
