Style Crop: Best of Reformation Sale

When I think of the brand Reformation I think of vintage meets modern swag, the kind of attitude that's no nonsense yet frisky at the same time.

I dig their clothes and their aesthetic big time. Their pieces are special, well-made to elevate your wardrobe and classic enough to wear no matter the season. 

Their prices are higher than I'd like in order for me to deck out my whole wardrobe in their dresses, but it's because they put their money where their mouth is on sustainability.

They design and manufacture in downtown Los Angeles and all garments are produced by using sustainable methods and materials. On the website for each piece they show the breakdown of water, carbon dioxide, and waste savings per piece. It's thorough and smart. 

It's honestly worth it to opt out of a few frivolous purchases in lower end stores (or sell a few items you're not jazzed about on Poshmark) and stock up on a few beautiful pieces you'll treasure for years.

And when they say they're having a sale, I drop everything and dive in:

17 Celestial Pieces Inspired by the Full Moon

This week's Style Crop post is based on items inspired by August's Sturgeon Moon, the latest moon from Monday night which was a partial lunar eclipse. It was gorgeous and felt very symbolic after my friend shared with me an article about its meaning.

Via @foxiedox on Instagram

The moon earned its name because the sturgeon fish was easiest to catch within the Great Lakes and Lake Superior during that time of the year. I've paid more attention to astrology lately (not daily horoscopes) as I believe there are general energy ebbs and flows that can be described through the astrological timing just like the tides, plus it's fun and helpful to reflect.

The words shared with me are found on this post from Mystic Mama and the lines that really stood out to me are:

“A lunar eclipse reminds us just how vital it is to attend to our inner world, our emotional life, to listen to the storm within, not push it down in the hope it will eventually go away. 

It won’t. For that storm is you and me and everybody: feelings and emotions passed down through the ages like a baton in a relay, denied and ignored, repressed and avoided, simply wanting and waiting to be heard.

Things previously confused and confusing are now made clear. But they must be further obscured before clarity is born.

In the darkness of this lunar eclipse we may encounter a sense of dread or despair, as if the light threatens never to return. But these moments will be brief and simply set the scene for the coming illumination of truths previously hidden in the shadows.

This is not arcane knowledge accessible only to the ‘chosen few’ but instead an everyday revelation that makes sense of things we feared we’d never understand."

My revelations are still rolling in over this time, but in general I find it helpful to keep pushing past comfort zones and when you become aware of something new about yourself to explore it and not resist it.

And onto the fashion - - -

Making Money on Poshmark 101

I'm become increasingly addicted to Poshmark in the past few months and wanted to share a few of my tips for getting started and making $$$. 

For years I dabbled on and off of this app and didn't commit to it as it is a ton of work. Fair warning: the app is aggressive and overwhelming. They send you daily affirmations, 3 parties per day, constant retweets from people trying to push their goods on you, and you have to leave on notifications to see if something is selling. 

But if you know how to start it off right, you'll start to get a rush off the sales. I've been selling an item almost every other day for the past month now that I've got momentum, sometimes I get two in a day. There's no better feeling once you get that SOLD notification late at night or first thing in the morning. This money funds any shopping I do so I can get my ideal wardrobe. And the cycle repeats. 

I do Poshmark (my closet is here) because it works and I get the most money back. When I get excited about Poshmark a lot of people ask about Thread Up and say isn't it easier to send in items? Please. You get $2-$6 per item and I'm personally offended to sell my collection and newer pieces for a ridiculously low price. It is easier but its purpose is getting clothing out of your closet not making money.

Also there's Buffalo Exchange / Crossroads/ Plato's. This was how I sold clothes growing up and now I am ridiculously grateful for apps to sell clothes because these options are the worst. First everyone always feels a weird sting of rejection as they never take much. Then their buyers are dispassionate about clothes and are never dressed well so they don't know taste when they see it. I stopped going after them rejecting bags of on-trend clothing while they carry racks of 10 Gap shirts. Excuse me but why does 80% of your store look like trash and you're rejecting mine? 

For consignment stores in the area, I'll dabble but I make generally $6-$18 per item after they take the 50% cut, but if I sell it on my own I generally make 1.5 - 2x more. So I only go to consignment stores after something isn't selling or I feel they can sell it faster. I get paid monthly via a check, whereas Poshmark is once the buyer accepts which is a week max. Once you get good at Poshmark I find I make the money I'd make at a consignment store in a few days or a week vs what I'd make there in a month. 

Also if you really don't have the time or are too lazy, I'm happy to help sell it for you - contact me in the "Selling" tab :)

Now that I've unloaded, here's what I recommend with Poshmark:

1. Master the lighting and create a good backdrop for your clothing

The main thing you'll learn in the app is to take beautiful photos with good natural lighting. It's not necessary to sell pieces, but it does speed up the process and make your store look legit. I had a cute backdrop in the beginning, but the lighting wasn't great so I now find I'm getting more traction with a nicer setup. A plain white wall or a rug on the floor work well. Here's an example of my before and after:

Ok lighting and cute alcove but could be a bit more crisp. I did sell pieces like this though!

Not the best lighting but people will buy if they're looking for the piece.

After: Much better lighting plus use of mannequin (I've had it but I had to rearrange my room to get a better backdrop). I'm moving into styling the pieces to amp it up.

2. Fill in descriptions

For the title of the item I use a catchy title that focuses on the trend of the dress - "Southwestern Mami Maxi Dress" and I add emojis if it feels appropriate to spice things up. Then you fill in the other areas - type of clothing, size, quantity, etc. Make sure you list the right brand esp if you have petite or tall clothes! When it comes to the Brand I play games here because I've realized the customers on Poshmark (or society in general) are from a culture of brand zombies crazy about getting brands for the cheap.

I find myself calling things "Free People" or "Brandy Melville" constantly because if I do a random brand or vintage it doesn't get exposed enough to get traction since people follow their favorite brands and see the latest uploads. In the example above I doubt "O'Neill" as brand will sell this dress, unless I'm mistaken in people's loyalty to that brand. They do send auto warnings if you change the brand constantly but I have yet to see any crackdowns. I generally caveat in the description that the piece is "marked Free People for exposure" and say where I got the piece. 

I also include how something fits - especially if it's marked and M and fits as a small, etc. People will often ask for measurements but I do these once I get a request. Next level would be doing it all at once to make sales quicker.

3. Find online merchandise photos if possible and/or celebs wearing the clothing

After I do a photoshoot of all my items and upload them with descriptions, I search Google to get photos of celebs in a similar piece or the photo from a store's website. This isn't a necessary step but it helps, generally I do this later in the night while watching TV or while waiting in line at Trader Joe's. 

I love Hailey and her outfit here and it gives the vibe of what this skirt would look like

Here's the actual skirt I'm selling for $55 because it's Theory and I want to lose weight to fit into it... but will sell if someone's buyin'

This definitely gets people's attention more and inspires them to get the look. Sometimes when I'm really inspired I do photos of the vibe like these Marie Antoinette-esque shoes I found at an estate sale:

Search as a few crucial details if you don't know the specific name of the item (ex: J Crew Silk Blue Tank) and search the Photos tab and it generally comes up within the first scroll of the page, but sometimes I dig for the photo. 

4. Pricing

Go $5-$20 higher with your piece just in case you have a hit and then you can accept lower offers. Sometimes you post a piece right away and get 10 likes, so best to keep the price a tad higher so you don't undersell and it goes too soon (see my Equipment top above that was too cheap). People are nonsensical on these apps when it comes to pricing. They're deal mongers trying to WIN the best prices not lovers of fashion. They really won't buy until they feel like they get a deal even if a dress was $120 and you sell it for $30!

I had a new Susana Monaco dress never worn that didn't look right on me and listed it for $40 - for context it was originally $100 and sold out on sale at $70 which I included a screenshot of. I received many offers low balling for $15 or $20 but sold finally for $25 to someone who appreciated it. This is a HUGE DEAL but I suspect many fashion lovers aren't using Poshmark enough. It's a tradeoff between selling quickly for cheap or holding out for a higher price. Sometimes the right buyer comes at the right time and really wants a piece so pricing doesn't matter, but sometimes you discount to help it sell. 

5. Get annoying in the parties. Or don't. 

The jury is out on this one whether the parties help or not. I find interested buyers find you, not the other way around but I get a boost in followers from doing parties. The way parties work is you share your clothes to them if they fit a certain theme. Some of the options are "Best in Shoes," "Vacation Ready," and "Anthropologie, Free People, Urban Outfitters Party." 

There's 3-4 parties per day so the notifications can get annoying but it's an opportunity to sell. Once I share my pieces to the party I'm welcomed by many fake retweets from other sellers and a like once in a while that gets my hopes up. I may have gotten one direct sale from participating in a party every day for the past month, so you can skip this step if it's too chaotic. I do think the next level for me is liking and engaging more people in the parties to grow my network, but it's not going to be a source of directly selling.

6. Shamelessly friend people and like their stuff

This step I do casually when I see a piece I like in a brand's new arrivals of a brand or a party. I friend a ton of people and try to like one piece from their collection (only if I genuinely like it) to get them to look at my stuff.

Don't be shy out there

Don't be shy out there

There really isn't a lot of reciprocity here but I think any Posher would say to do it anyway. I notice people who have huge followings (10-15K) do follow a ton of people. I would recommend to spend more time on this than doing parties after I've reflected on this whole process.

Overall, once you set up and take a couple hours to list everything you'll start seeing that $$$ roll in! It's organized chaos but it works for now. Let me know if you're curious about anything else below!

Break Free Playlist

If you're ready to wake up, I've got a playlist for you.

These are my essential songs for driving past all the BS of life.

For strutting on a walk to work or to get coffee.

For getting in the zone at the gym - cue Sabotage.

For driving around the highways in LA and daring someone to enter my lane.

For riding the wave after a pisses me off and I need to refuel.

I had to start it off with one of my Top 5 Songs of all time Fly Away which won Lenny the Grammy for Best Rock Performance in 1999, one of my favorite years ( because music died in 1999). The song is exactly how I felt for 2 years and has always spoken to me since I was 8 so it had to kick off the album. 

The other songs center around freedom and breaking through a la The Doors' Break on Through  - another one of my favorite songs that I love singing in my car.

The Animals' Inside Out - Looking Out who have an attitude I love and the line "they dragged me back to work again" always gets me.

Iggy Pop's Lust for Life which I went off on IG stories is 1000000x better than Lana's wimpy Lust for Life air ball.

Voodoo Child is one of my favorite Hendrix songs and Can't You Hear Me Knocking one of my favorite from the Stones.

One of my favorite bands' The Dandy Warhol's Smoke It is snarkily written mocking the BS of life with "people have more baggage than JFK" and "let's have a big round of applause for anyone who can deal with it." I get you.

Beastie Boy's Sabotage makes me want to pound in a door or jump over a fence or some shit, it's such an underrated song.

Then girl power at the end with Tei Shi's Bassically which builds up slowly at the end into female hysteria and No Doubt's It's My Life which a feisty precursor to yolo. 

And Seven Nation Army at the End because it felt fitting.

Weekly Style Crop: H & M

I'm starting a weekly series called WEEKLY STYLE CROP which will include my top picks at one store or a current style I'm vibing with and kicking it off with what's going on H&M.

Lucky I found the champagne color in store

Lucky I found the champagne color in store

I thought of H&M because I wanted some new items to add flair to my room and I've always been impressed with the design and prices of their home section. Their design is a more stylish and paired down version of Home Goods. It's so sad they don't sell home products in store except on the east coast (?) so I just shop online.

I started exploring their swim suits since I loved the $5 one I purchased for Bali and then since it was getting good I looked at everything across their women's section JUST IN CASE. I was impressed with how their pieces look much more expensive a la Reformation or a local indie brand, though I'm sure there was some ripping off involved.

I checked the store in person to try on these pieces and couldn't find more than 3 of these pieces plus the store selection was very basic workwear blasé. There were a couple $5-$7 racks of cool pieces, but the dresses fit weird so I passed. I highly recommend ordering online and returning in store because they do full refunds and these piece are selling out so quickly!

ALSO if you want 15% off your order there's a coupon code 1426 if you use their mobile app to checkout! Otherwise PSA: you can bring 3+ old pieces of clothing from any brand and they'll take 15% off your purchase for their recycling program.

Bali Revelation #1: Beyond the fear is the fun

I have been waiting to unleash a lot of Bali content and while I figure out the whole video editing component, I wanted to make sure this message got out there because it's been coming back into my life constantly.

Beyond the fear is the fun. 

I learned this through my surf lesson in Bali, but the point was brought up again last night through a conversation I had with my mentor's son who's a dating coach. You have to take action through fear to get to the other side. Courage is what matters or else you won't change.

When my friend Quinn proposed the idea of surfing during our trip planning call I knew I wanted to but was hesitant because I have a history of getting pummeled by waves. Hopelessly pummeled. When I was in Miami my friends found it hilarious that while they dove underneath the waves, I either tried to go above and get slammed or barely dive beneath them and also get tossed. I laughed at myself and admittedly accepted it wasn't one of my strengths. Pretty ironic for a Pisces.

I grew up playing a lot of sports, but I never was a fan of swimming and my family never pushed me into water sports in any way minus being able to swim. I'm pretty sure my dad was afraid we'd get carried by a current and die. Tanning and drawing in the sand then became my comfort zone (will come back to this later).

That morning at Canggu Beach I didn't know what I was getting into. At breakfast I tried to not think about it and was pretty good blocking the fear from my mind because what could I do then? I knew building it up would make it worse.

Quinn and I started practicing surfing form with our instructor on the sand with our massive beginner boards. We learned about paddling and where to put our feet on the board. I learned from my first ski lesson where my ski instructor left out a couple crucial details that I needed to ask the instructor stupid questions to make sure I'm not missing anything. 

Are there sharks attacks here? 

What about rip tides?

How should I fall? 

What should I absolutely not do if I fall?

I then started practicing falling to get his approval on appropriate "eat shit" methods. This helped me feel like I wouldn't shock him with my potentially fatal falling instincts. 

Then we started paddling out to the waves which was already a workout and I faced my first fear of swimming at the waves. I was getting bounced around a bit and could feel the fear rising.

In the water we talked about technique of catching the wave and it must have been no more than 3 minutes since the man was not a fluent English speaker. I was waiting for an apology about the waves and the surf philosophy. A shaka would even help. But alas, all he said was look at the shore which seemed pretty useless at that point. 

He started to announce "Ready??" and I was panicking. I think that was about the time I wanted to say thank you sir for the tutorial, but this isn't worth it. I wanted to go back to the shore and just coast. I remember being convinced I was going to get out. The fear was overwhelming here, my brain had me convinced from logic and past experience not to do this.

Somehow I just thought you're here in Bali, you're doing it. Then I started to paddle and waited for him to say "UP!" like he promised. I felt the wave start to carry me and it felt like a roller coaster firing you out of the gate. I never heard him say UP over the noise so I just went for it after his long pause. I don't remember how far I got but I definitely tipped over and went under the wave. I was a little shaken up but the bandaid was ripped off.

I came back for a 2nd and 3rd time and still had a panic mindset that the instructor pointed out. He was a bit of a grumpy old man and was barely encouraging. 

"Stop panicking, you panick" I'm panicking!? Dude, you don't even know what I'm like not on the board.

"Look at the shore" I'm aware, brah.

It took me about 8 times and I finally rode one. It was AMAZING. It was both empowering and felt like I was flying. And the instructor was right about looking at the shore, it just seemed too obvious and I didn't exactly get what he meant.

My dad will probably frame this

There's an analogy there: if you focus on just the shore instead of where your feet are and looking at the board you naturally stay balanced and ride the wave, but if you obsess about the nitty details and look at the board you throw off your balance when you look up.

Its overthinking vs. intuition. You have to TRUST.

I kept saying TRUST, it was the only thing that helped calm my mind.

Another tip I found was waiting until your arms were steadily placed before getting up. You feel like you need to rush it but it's better to wait until you're steady. I wish he made that more clear but I got it down learning by fire.

I got up 4 other times and rode one wave all the way to the shore on my 2nd or 3rd ride. I loved it. It took everything you had because getting back to the instructor was a huge workout and getting up on the board was a whole other workout. I wanted to catch as many waves as I could but it really depended on how much you could push yourself to get up even though you're running on empty. Someone told us you prep for surfing by weight training for months which gives me much better motivation for bringing it at the gym.

The last few times were so fun because Quinn and I alternated between getting waves and throwing high fives with the instructor.

Now to tie it back to the dating coach, James. 

My mentor from Austin sent me a FB message that her son is in LA for the week so I was eager to meet him. When asking him about his work, he said he loved helping people transform themselves and kept repeating that he can only help people if they show courage. If they can't push themselves through the hump there's nothing he can do. When he said this yesterday I immediately thought of surfing. 

He brought up that your mind will disguise fear as rational thought and practicality. When he works with guys approaching women they tell themselves:

The girl probably has a boyfriend.

I don't want to interrupt them.

I'll probably get rejected.

What if I say something stupid?

He said he can hand hold, but they have to move themselves forward. We're designed to stay in our comfort zone and we're not always aware of the fact we trip ourselves up with logic.

In any area of your life, if you're stuck you have to BREAK THROUGH fear, resistance, procrastination, or accepting mediocrity. When I was getting closer to quitting my job, I had to break through these mental barriers because there's a million logical reasons to stay. You and the people in your life will unconsciously keep you in your comfort zone.

James said people generally come to a breaking point where they can't take a relationship anymore, and it goes the same for careers. 

That got me thinking you can either be reactive and have shit build up to where you can't take it or reshape your mind and thinking yourself.

But you don't need to read a book on it or watch your 20th inspirational video. 

You gotta do it now. Now's a good a time as ever or else you're delaying the fun.

2017 is Telling You to Upgrade Your Denim

I'll admit I've never been a huge denim person and have never kept more than 5 pairs of jeans in my wardrobe at once. I may have PTSD from the days of Hollister / A&F / American Eagle when there was so little variation in styles and you had to try on 20 pairs to find the right ones. We've come a long way but to find something I love (AG Jeans) you have to shell out at least $150 or get really lucky. Personally I'll opt for my dresses & skirts.

The skirt I snagged at H&M for $4 is constantly in my rotation along with the Erin Brockovich Korkease Clogs. My new vintage cheetah top I picked up at the Rose Bowl Flea Market has been giving me goosebumps. Layered necklaces my own.

The skirt I snagged at H&M for $4 is constantly in my rotation along with the Erin Brockovich Korkease Clogs. My new vintage cheetah top I picked up at the Rose Bowl Flea Market has been giving me goosebumps. Layered necklaces my own.

Yet this year there has been an explosion of new denim creations that I've perked up to the idea of getting MULTIPLE pieces.

There's the patchwork pieces that mix both 70s and 90s trends like the tube top set from Akira below that was immediately a when my friend Emily tried it on in Chicago. A few of her friends on snapchat immediately asked where the outfit was from.

Then finally the immaculate distressing of this season is blowing me away - from subtle fringed ends to full on haggardness I. LOVE. IT. ALL. 2017 has shown creativity breaking through and I'm really seeing it here. One caveat is that people can simmer on the over-ripping of jeans and under butt rips, it looks trashy and should only be used for a cheeky effect. I honestly might heave if I see another choker + but rip + bomber jacket combo :D

But now let me upgrade you xoxo

13 Womens Sunglasses for Summer 2017

When it comes to shades I keep one tried & true pair with me at all times and then have a fun costume-y one when I'm going full-on LA. I personally would rather load up on a few trendy shades than splurging on one, especially this year as colored sunglasses have been on fire.

They've been all over Instagram and 2 of my favorites are:

Have a Sexy Summer of 2017 with 20 Vacation Ready Pieces

Now that it's June it's summertime baby! I'm prepping for a vacation to Bali and realized it's so necessary to make sure you have all the pieces you need for the summer. And SO MUCH good stuff is out there right now!

I love going all in on vacation wear and having no rules when it comes to a summer wardrobe - Now is NOT the time to be practical!! It's about ease and throwing things on with your mood aka the look below:

Top: A scarf I got from either a Goodwill or Vintage store for no more than a dollar (I collect these for this purpose and to amp up the bohemian-ness). Bag: My handy dandy Clare V Straw Bag and I love its simple circle shape! Skirt: Zara and I've worn this button up mini after having it for 3 years. Shoes: My much loved Brooklyn-based Kork Ease clogs my college roommates named "The Erin Brockovich Clogs" - they just ramble on with me and are perfectly impractical Jewels: Heart necklace I just made, shell necklace I wear as bracelet, and my new and only ring I rock that I got from Lost & Found Vintage in Royal Oak Michigan <3

What I'm always crushing on for summer wear is the old school glamour of a pretty dress with vintage shades / hair blowing in the wind AND the boho just washed up on the beach look so...

I'm giving a bit of both sides in these picks.

Some of these are selling out and you need a week for shipping so get GOING! xoxo

Can't Get Enough: Slides

There's no shoe I'm crushing on this season more than slides. They are pure CHICNESS. By slides I mean any shoe without backs you can slide into. 

I'm in love with this pair from ASOS I've been sliding into my outfits du jour:

While hunting for pairs I realized it's a confusing definition between mules and slides as sites describe these shoes interchangeably - it was unclear. What you need to know is a mule is a shoe without a back and a slide is a shoe without a back and without the toe area (think Adidas black and white striped athletic slides). At dinner I had a stunning revelation: every slide is a mule but not every mule is a slide. It's Venn diagram level shit but what you need to know is slides are here for good.

Speaking of SLIDING, I need to give a shoutout to the 1998 Goo Goo Dolls hit Slide, one of my favorite songs from the 90s. This song runs so deep for me, I'll never get over it or the nostalgia. I love the rawness of the lyrics and the equally awesome music video, the vibes of longing for love, the girl running off the fire escape in a tulle dress, Johnny Rzeznik in guy liner...

Also the album Dizzy Up the Girl was one of my Top 3 CDs growing up and the album title is insanely brilliant. Rant over, but check it out.

And now... here's a few slides for your shopping pleasure:
