We all have heard the saying that less is more and fewer is better but I don’t think we really began to understand how true these statements were until we both owned houses of our own. It’s incredible how fast the years go by and how many things you end up accumulating along the way. Before you know it you are the woman who lived in her shoe, surrounded by a mountain of clothes the size of Everest that you haven’t touched in 5 years. And let’s not even talk about the handbags that have claimed their own entire walking closet. With clothes taking up their own residence, how is that we still complain that we have nothing to wear?
As we teetered on the edge of becoming that lady dwelling in her shoe, we knew that there had to be a solution to the madness. And that boiled down to pairing down the wardrobe, getting rid of the mounds of clothes that we hadn’t been touched in practically a decade and making room for wardrobe staples that would actually earn their keep. Our closet cleaning kick came at the perfect time, right before I made my trip out to visit Michelle in LA. Which meant shopping for practical, staples pieces that would last longer than Johnny Depp’s marriage.
Michelle took me to Abbot Kinny and we immediately spotted Cuyana, a favorite store of ours. We popped in and met the sweet girls that worked in the shop and they showed us some of the cutest pieces to compliment our summer wardrobe. I ended up scoring a blush suede cross body bag and Michelle took home a gorgeous/timeless black leather bucket bag. We were both in the market for new bags and we seriously hit the jackpot at Cuyana. High quality leather, that can be monogrammed in the store, and super reasonable prices. We both are kicking ourselves for not taking home some of the tees because OMG they were soft. Good thing for the inter-webs!
So if you are looking to de-clutter your wardrobe and purchase a few updated pieces that won’t go out of style, Cuyana is seriously the spot. Head into your local shop or check them out online!
