RE: What Are You Looking For? | Spring Shopping Guide

A couple weeks ago, or maybe a month because I have no sense of day/time anymore since the quarantine, I asked on IG Stories what you guys are looking for as you shop. Now that online shopping is the only way we’ll be making purchases for the foreseeable future, I couldn’t think of a better time to get this post up with all this WFH time we’re mutually experiencing.

Based on the feedback I received, I did my best to find 3+ unique options for the specific items being searched for. Even if you aren’t in the market for any of these things, some of the brands I’ve included might be new to you or worth considering for the next time you’re purchasing. Because it’ll be time for floral dresses and beach swimmys before we know it!

*Please note: I know a lot of small businesses are hurting & not everyone is in the mindset, mentally or financially, to shop these days. However, for those of us are looking for a distraction like this, I hope it will help you get your mind off the now and get you excited about those future projects/trips/occasions that will be back in our lives at some point. Myself & my assistant Kendall did our best to include small business brands that we’ve personally bought from or know of well, and almost all of the items included from bigger brands are on sale substantially.

DENIM / JEANS


Budget-Friendly Jeans (Under $100)

Split-Hem Jeans (Ankle Slit)

Ankle/Crop Flare Jeans

Denim Joggers

Flattering/Cool Ripped Jeans

  • Madewell The Perfect Vintage Jean – What I love about these so much is that the rip isn’t at the knee or somewhere where it can easily get stretched out, which isn’t flattering lol.
  • Levi’s 501 Crop JeansI LOVE the simplicity and effortless classiness of the distressing, and the fact that Levi’s is so OG.
  • Paige Sarah Slim Jeans – This wash color needs to be in everyone’s closet, no exceptions.


FOOTWEAR


Red Snakeskin Booties

Flats For Work (Under $100)

Cozy House Slippers (Under $100)

Inexpensive Black Booties



HOME/OFFICE ORGANIZATION


Desk Organization

 Indoor Entrance Rug

  • West Elm Chilewich Wave Woven Floor MatI don’t own this exact rug but I picked this one for neutrality & ease of hiding dirt while being light; honestly, any West Elm rug is a durable & long-lasting addition to the home.
  • Etsy Turkish Entry Runner Rug – We have one in our kitchen as a runner, any of these are a great way to support small businesses.
  • Society 6 Rugs – This is a new category launched & if you love the wall art options from here, the rug selections are just as great. Plus, every purchase supports the artist who made the design so it’s a great way to support small businesses too!

When the quarantine is over >> ABC Carpet & Home Outlet – This is more an insider tip than anything else but they sell rug “scraps” here which are about the size of entry rugs and are 75-90% off, obviously requires a trip to Brooklyn but this is one of the best kept secrets in home decor!

Closet Organization

Small Gold Desk/Table Lamp



HAIR/SKINCARE


OTC Scalp Treatments

Hand & Body Lotion (Absorbent/Not Strong-Smelling)



JACKETS


Black Faux Leather Jacket

Tuxedo Jacket



MISC.


Cuban Chain/Necklace Choker

Bathing Suit Coverup

Sports Bra With Padding



Again, I’m doing my best to handle this new normal as much as you all are. I’m sorry if this post isn’t the content suitable for the now but I also have to do my job in any way that I can; shopping guides are part of that & what I can still provide in this time when many of my contracted projects, which help keep the blog up & running, have been postponed, and rightfully so.
Thank you for your understanding xx

    I’ve been looking into OTC scalp treatments for a while! Would be a fun thing to do while distancing too!

    I’m not in a position to be shopping, but it’s always fun to browse!

    This is a fun post, Tilden! I am loving the red snakeskin booties. But I also am in no position to be shopping right now either as my income has taken a huge hit right now. But it is still fun to look what’s available. Thanks for putting this together and supporting small businesses as well!
