Back To Basics


AllSaints has been having a killer sale lately and I've been pillaging their stores. I went over to the store at The Promenade in Santa Monica to check out their stuff and take advantage of the sales. Last year, I bought a top from AllSaints about a month after Christmas but it always fit me weird so I wanted to actually go in a try on some tops before ordering any more. I ended up buying everything in-store and saving on shipping. I pretty much kept it to basics.

I feel like all of the basics I've had over the years were pretty cheap and either didn't actually fit right or were falling apart after a couple washes. I've decided that I'm going to start buying nicer basics so I can get more mileage out of them. Another problem I've always had is finding jeans that weren't in the junior section. I'm only a 24" waist and most women's brands start at 25" or 26" but since AllSaints' jeans run small, I actually fit in their 25.

After my trip to AllSaints, I stopped by Diesel just to check it out and they were also having a sale so I bought a top there too.

There's something really nice about having quality basics that you know are going hold up over time.
