Beauty Empties | 01


Do you follow Eva Chen, recently-resigned head of Lucky Magazine, on Instagram? Besides her signature #evachenpose showcasing her shoes and bag du jour, her series of #beautifulempties is one of my favorite ‘grams to see pop up in my feed.

Each month or so, Eva shares mini reviews of the skincare and makeup products she used to the last drop. Plenty of YouTubers do this, too; but instead of a 15 minute video, Eva’s version only takes a few minutes to digest.

I love these kinds of ‘real life’ reviews when I shop for beauty products, so I’m jumping on board!

Buy these J.Crew pants before it’s too late!

To file under ‘Ways I’m Becoming My Mother.’

I buy stuff I love in bulk. If Costco sold high-rise skinny jeans and boxy cotton tees in assorted 12-packs, I’d be all over it.

Some things I purchased in triplicate — or more, don’t judge me —  within the last two years: LC Lauren Conrad ‘Valencia’ skinny flip flops in black and tan (a cheaper alternative of my beloved leather TKEES); Old Navy boyfriend fit button-downs; American Eagle hi-rise skinny jeggings; and Free People ‘free falling’ tees.

I need backups. And in some cases, my backups need backups. Because I just don’t have the time or energy to marathon shop anymore; so when I find something I feel good wearing, I buy it in every color. See: My Top 10 Wardrobe Essentials.

Now, with all that said, get ye to jcrew.com and order the ‘Turner’ pant, on final sale, before they run out of all the sizes and you miss the opportunity to indulge in this magic for less than $20:

We took a classic lounge pant (think an elastic waist and ankle cuffs) and dressed it up for work (and cocktails after) with heavy matte crepe. So it’s like you’re wearing pj’s to the office, but not.

{I ordered them in 3 colors.}
