Genuine Brands

August 31, 2015

To go off of my previous post about minimizing my closet and supporting strong brands, I’ve decided to research which brands do have great values as well as products made in the US. Some of these brands that are worth supporting include DVF, Rag & Bone, JBrand and American Apparel. Although these brands are not as cheap as Forever21 and H&M they will last longer and really enhance the quality of your closet. It is definitely not easy to make this transition and it may take me awhile, but I believe it is a good move.

This summer when I packed for Chicago, I tried to bring as little as I could and it made picking out an outfit easy and quick. I made due with what I had and ended up avoiding a lot of stress trying to plan outfits with too many items to even comprehend. I hope this post urges you to take a look at your closet and think about the brands you support and the brands that you want to start supporting! Leave comments below with any other brand or minimizing suggestions, I would love to hear them!

Here are some of my favorite products from the brands above:
