Must-Haves for Every Closet

People always ask me what one item every woman should own. Choosing one isn’t so easy, so I have compiled a few into one outfit instead!

Besides the obvious white tee and black jeans, I think women need to have a statement piece. For me, those would be my patterned wide-leg trousers from Gap. Y’all, these feel like pajamas, they are sooo comfy! The waistband is stretchy, and the pants are a nice breathable fabric. I’ve had these for ages, so I can’t link you to these exact ones, but I found some inexpensive alternatives for you!

Valentines Day Looks to Covet

Single’s Awareness Day is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to start planning! Whether you’re celebrating Valentines Day or Galentines Day, you’ll need to look your best. In lieu of preparation, I have prepared a list of V-day essentials so you can look fabulous for anyone you’re spending the day with (yes, that includes YOU!).

For us at Harper Grey, Valentines Day has always been about confidence. A couple years ago, I took a sexy workout class on Valentines Day itself- this class was all women, of ANY shape and size, working on our strutting and dancing skills, IN HEELS. That’s right, we did an entire workout class in our fanciest pumps.

Where to Find Wide-Calf Boots

Hello fashionistas! Every winter, I struggle to find a stylish boot that fits my wider calf. This is something that a lot of women deal with, but not a lot of brands have found a solution for (and is it really that hard??).

For years I thought that the dream of owning the perfect pair of boots was, well, just a dream #TheStruggleIsReal. But the tides are turning, and the selection of wide-calf boots is now a reality! And girl, some of these are under $40! Whether you’re looking for a high-end boot, or a trendy boot just for the season, there’s a wide-calf boot out there for everyone!

The Greatest Online Shopping Yet (and They Have Your Size!)

 

Those who know me know that I spend HOURS every week online shopping. Why do this when I can’t even try it on? Through experimental shopping, I have learned which online shops I can trust, what sizes to order for myself, and most important, their return policies!

But nothing prepared me for Loft’s sale of the century over Christmas (and yes, it’s still happening!). Early 2018, Loft released their anticipated plus-size line. Loft has always been known as a petite shop, and I could never find anything there that fit even one of my thighs.

All the Deets on Anthropologie’s New Plus-Size Line

I have been ‘ooing’ and ‘aweing’ at Anthropologie shops since I was a chubby 12 year old kid. I remember once fitting into one of their larger, stretchier dresses and I was elated. Complete, even. I learned to appreciate their accessories and home goods, since fitting into those clothes was never going to happen for a size 16 with swimmer shoulders.

So when I heard that my favorite store in the world was releasing a curvy collection, I didn’t have words to describe how happy and included I felt. 2019 and Anthropologie finally gets it right – who’da thought? (They need to lower their prices, but that’s for another blog post).

Millennial Gift Guide

How is it already that time of year again? It’s Christmas time, and if you’re anything like me, you have shall we say, delayed doing your Christmas shopping until now, AKA, the last minute. It’s okay, I gotchu! This year I put together a Millennial Gift Guide- a list of the top 10 gifts for that special millennial in your life.

Now, millennials do range from 22-37 years old, but for this post, I’m focusing more on the younger millennials. Those who live in their own place, have a job, but are still a bit short on money and are just starting the journey to adulthood. This means gifts of practicality are going to be a hit.
