A Bit About Habits

“It’s always with the best intentions that the worst work is done.” Oscar Wilde


What if I told you that many of our shopping patterns are beyond our control? Would you believe me? Willingly so, I’d imagine!


What is your Closet Personality?


Let me ask you a question: What would your closet say about you if it could have a good aul gossip? Think about it. Our closets have the potential to dish the dirt on us in classic tell-all style: how often we shop, how much we spend, how we treat our clothing – even our emotional hang-ups.
