When seasons change it’s always nice to buy a few new pieces to refresh our wardrobes. If we keep adding items without getting rid of others, our closets can get very congested and overcrowded. An option to prevent this from happening is to follow the one-in one-out rule. I talked about this briefly in a post here. As a refresher, the one-in one-out rule is when we bring a new piece into our wardrobe, another piece is removed.

I’ve recently bought some new spring items, so I thought it would be fun to share with you how I follow this rule in my own life. I never buy new hangers, which forces me to make sure I adhere to the one-in one-out rule. Let’s get into it!

Even though stripes are hot this year, I chose to let this striped shirt go in favor of this tunic length sweater. I’m loving all things tunic length lately and I feel this sweater fits my current style more than the striped shirt.

These shirts are so similar, so this choice was easy. Plus, the one-out top doesn’t fit well anymore.

Although, I love the this wrap shirt, it’s simply not my jam anymore. It’s time for it to go to Goodwill.

I’m loving this new shirt! It’s another tunic length number. The one-out shirt isn’t a good length and doesn’t fit well anymore.

This new one-in dress is so versatile and comfy. I love it! As for the one-out dress, I just don’t find myself wearing it very often. I think someone else could put it to better use.

This one-in shirt is so beautiful and comfy to boot! The one-out shirt is one I’ve had for over 10 years. I still love it, but it just doesn’t fit my style anymore.

The one-out top doesn’t fit well anymore, so this was an easy choice.

I still love the fit and color of the one-out tank, but it needs fixing so it’s time to go.

These are similar tanks. I love the one-out top, but it doesn’t fit well anymore.

This was a difficult choice. I love both dresses, but at the end of the day the one-in fits my style better than the one-out.

This was another hard choice. The brown shoes are nice, but it’s just time for change.

Do you follow the one-in one-out rule? Share you stories with us below!

Budget Shopping, Fashion

An Online Boutique You Have to See to Believe

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

We all need to shop for clothes. Regardless of whether we like shopping or not, it’s a thing we have to do.

There are times shopping for clothes can be fun, but it can also be super stressful. The busy malls, the fitting room mirrors that lie, sifting through racks and racks of items only to find something you like but not in your size, etc etc.

I’ve certainly wandered aimlessly and depressed through many a clothing store with little hope that I’ll ever be able to find what I want.

There’s got to be a better way.

Six years ago, I broke my ankle and I broke it badly. I was down for the count for a couple months. No shopping for me. What’s a girl to do? Up until this point in my life, I had been vehemently opposed to online shopping. I insisted I must try on each clothing item before purchasing them. Being homebound, though, I caved and downloaded the JCPenney app.

From then on, I was hooked. Do you mean to tell me I can scroll through hundreds of items filtered by my size and item type of choice…in a matter of minutes…from the comfort of my couch? Yes, please! I’ve never looked back.

Once I found the joy and ease of online shopping, I needed a few go-to sites. Of course, I relied (and still do) on Target, JCP, and thredUP. My quest for fabulous (and inexpensive) online clothing sites has never ceased, though.

The other day I was reading a blog post on J’s Everyday Fashion (check out the post here). Now when J shares a favorite find, I listen.  She has stellar taste plus she’s a fellow Kansas girl.  If you haven’t checked out her blog, do yourself a favor and head on over there.  You’ll love it!  Anyway, J was talking about an online clothing shop called Jane.com. She shared a few of her finds and they were super cute and super budget friendly. I had to check it out.

So what is this Jane.com online store?  According to their website, they describe themselves like this: “Jane.com is a very beautiful boutique marketplace featuring the latest in women’s fashion trends, home decor, and children’s clothing.”  As their description mentions, they not only have adorable and affordable women’s fashion, they also have jewlery, home decor items and children’s clothing.  What more could you ask for?

I’ve placed a few orders so far using their app. ¬†The app is super easy to use and most items feature multiple pictures so you can really get a good look at them. ¬†Because Jane.com sells items from different boutiques, shipping is calcualated per item. ¬†That is a little different than most of us are used to. ¬†However, this is not a deal breaker by any means. ¬†Shipping is usually a couple bucks per item. ¬†The prices are so low, that adding an extra $2-$3 still makes them a great deal. ¬†Returns are a breeze too, although, again, you need to deal with each boutique seperately.Below are the items I’ve purcahsed so far. ¬†Enjoy!
