i love basic mall brands

I recently read a piece in the Atlantic called Ann Taylor and the Case for Boring Office Clothes and it got me thinking about how I still love basic mall brands of the Ann Taylor variety. If you peeked into my wardrobe, about 80% of my clothing comes from a store or brand you’d typically find at a mid-tier mall. I grew up in a mall town–King of Prussia–and shopping at mall brands has been a part of me ever since, even as I shop all the new and amazing brands crushing it in the boutique and e-commerce scene. For work clothing especially, I frequently shop Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, LOFT, and J.Crew.

Schoola Haul & Restaurant Week

If you’ve liked my blog on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, you may have already seen me post aboutSchoola. Schoola is a really awesome site where you can shop secondhand clothes while also fundraising for schools. I found it when I was looking around for ways to do some spring cleaning of my clothing, since I currently only sell my clothes on Poshmark. Schoola is a great option for anyone looking to clean out their closet by donating old clothes or trying to add to their wardrobe without spending a lot. I wore one of the tops I bought from Schoola when Gerome and I went to Dine Out Boston at Smith & Wollensky, so if you keep reading, you can also see what we ate at the castle in Back Bay!
