Yes, I do get a super small commission from these brands (sometime 20 cents and i'm not even joking), but I can track these links and see whats working for you guys and what's not so it's very helpful. Sponsored content will ALWAYS be labeled as sponsored, and I will always give you my honest opinion.
Shoes and bags go in and out of fashion so quickly though, Honestly I think there is no need to buy very expensive items from any genre of clothing. You can get really nice blazers, shoes, bags, or trousers for less than $100-- and usually a lot cheaper, just shop carefully. Camel and neutral look expensive now, because they are in fashion. They weren't a few years ago-- they were considered bland and boring. In a few years they will look cheap and out of fashion, like everything else.
What an awesome video !!! =D So happy to have discovered your channel. You have such good sense of style. It upsets me that people misconstrued your budget comment. Whatever someone budgets for clothing is highly variable and based on many factors. Clearly you acknowledged that. This video is very informative and encourages viewers that style is attainable regardless of cost. Thanks for sharing !
Most people are not starting from scratch, so $30 could add a new pair of pants to one's wardrobe...or 2-3 blouses from a thrift store...Also, saving that amount for 3 months and getting a $90 pair of shoes might be a better choice for a lot of people. Working at it slowly is quite alright, no one needs to buy 10 pieces a month. Where would we store them anyways? Can you imagine adding 120 new items to you closet every year? Chaos!
Why are multiple youtubers trying to thrust the neutral colour palette down my throat like buy blush and camel and white😂?. No, it gets boring and I don't want all of us to look like copies of each other.
Ashley, I love all you videos and I found you tips and styles very helpful. And the final editing is sooo famine and modern! I think, that thanks to you I finally found "my style" :)
Just wanted to ask if that is possible for you to make a video about shoes which are "wearable" to office? Especially spring/summer shoes, when you want to stay comfy all day, but also want to look nice. For me it is so hard to find proper ones, which will be good for my feet all day long and boost a outfit as well
“Some people have 500 a month, some people have 1000 a month”
“ you should spend 5% of your income on clothes”
Ok... so you think your viewers earn between 120 and 240 thousand a year? Lol. This is very unrealistic.
+CatEyes1993 she said she was wrong and she was just saying a random number to begin with. so tired of being acting like they're god among men and everyone should just kiss their ass & beg. If you don't wanna watch I'm sure she'll make it ok without you.
Why are these people so booty bent. My goodness. She literally said apply it to YOUR budget. She was so patient and wasn't goving attitute at all. For a lawyer you're pretty damn sensitive and your argument is completely invalid. I wouldn't hire you.
My profession requires me to wear strict formal office wear. Hence my wardrobe consists of 7 tailored trousers & blazers, 12 blouses, 5 tailored skirts. Scarves are my personal favourites to add a dash of colour to my otherwise formal wear. This is enough for 4-5 months. Tailored pieces are a great investment as they are made to fit your body and some of them can last for years with proper care. You can choose your own fabrics, colours, etc.
A good metallic watch ( mine is almost 8 years old), comfortable footwear that lets me sprint whole day, anti-fungal dusting powder for my lovely feet. Also make sure to invest in good and breathable inner-wears.
Yes! Tailoring is something people forget about all the time but can make things look so much better! I think investing in bags and shoes are the best but I also love to invest in high quality suit wear but I buy it pre-loved so it's very budget friendly. I know that's not everyone's cup of tea but I try not to invest in the fast fashion market and want super high quality items that will last me a lifetime. Investing in basics is helpful as it extends their life but they don't have to cost too much! I use instagram as my ootd folder- lol. I also like to pick out outfits in the beginning of the semester (I'm a professor as the name implies) and I like to make everything in to outfits so I don't repeat anything but basics. I am all about the thrifting and have created a side business through poshmark that allows me to bring in new items and rotate out the old. I make some money and get to update my wardrobe- it's a win win! Thanks so much for sharing :)
Hey Ashley! I love this series and just watched your video on how to get a job in fashion. I was wondering if you recommend moving before finding a job because then its easier to be available for interviews and you mentioned location being a selector for employers, or if you found your job before moving. Also with apartments how did you find where you were going to live? I am finishing my masters this spring and want to move away from where I've always lived with near parents and have to find a job. :) thought this kind of went with the office series so commented it here :) Also love you and thanks for the inspiration
I love your channel, Ashley. (esp. the vlogs, absolutely adore you and ryan and how you handle everything!) And thanks for the office/work/ business series! I would like to see how you would style for work/ office on hot summer days esp. considering there are countries where it gets hot inside too because they don't cool down like in the U.S. haha. ;)
$500 a month?!? Regardless of my income, this is excessive. I like to be mindful of my purchases to ensure they last. That’s why I love your channel so much. 💕 I now plan ahead and shop only to fill specific holes in my closet. Thanks for the continued inspiration.
what do you think of having an "uniform" to work - like wearing the same all day long... i always admire Marc Zuckerberg etc. because it sounds so easy, but on the other hand it sounds extremely boring... :D
Love this series! I would love to see Travel friendly work outfits and what you pack and how you pack it. I travel often for work and only use a smaller carry on and get stumped trying to make the right decisions and make it all fit. Thx
Thanks for doing this series and thinking of us! I’m assuming the majority of your viewers have office jobs, and unfortunately not in some cool industry that allows us the same type of creative freedom Influencers and/or bloggers have. ♥️
For blazers and suiting, Massimo Dutti is excellent. A little more expensive than Zara but the quality, fit and detail is worth it. Still much cheaper than "investment" brands. Also less popular than Zara so less likely to see someone with the same jacket.
Thank you for an awesome video! I would like some tips for how to wear dresses and skirts at work during colder times, I’ve never seen you showing a skirt or dress with tights for example, thank youuu! 😍😍
how to understand that the quality of the piece that you are buying is good (especially some tips for shopping online) and what material do you recommend for trousers and shirts to not rinkel that much? I had so many shirts that I payed for and after 3 months I couldn't wear them anymore...
Thank you! you are awesome!
I don’t buy things all the time. I went to a capsule wardrobe for the money saving aspect. I used to buy way too much clothing and couldn’t even store it all. I save for something I want, regardless of what it is. If I am lacking a pair of loafers or trousers - I look for the best and save for it.
THANK YOU for this series Ashley! I'm graduating from college this spring and about to start my first full-time office job, and have been so overwhelmed with trying to find affordable, cute office wear. This series is helping me out so much!

10. “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost (1874-1963)
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
Meaning of the Poem.
This poem deals with that big noble question of “How to make a difference in the world?” On first reading, it tells us that the choice one makes really does matter, ending: “I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.”
