    Style during the pandemic…pj's and yoga pants. I am missing getting dressed up and wearing heals. Maybe in 2021.

    Hallo Erin, I have your videos through searching for petite woman looks. I live in Holland and my problem is that the clothes here are made for tall people. Do you know how could I get a nice leather peitte jacket? Can I get your books and checklists shipped to Europe? Are they available online?

    Totally agree, I purge every three months. Self love is a must!!
    I am over designer anything, a beautiful structured bag so much better. The only fashion I do spend money on are on shoes and basics from Eileen Fisher, love them the last forever, I’ve had pieces for years and still look amazing.

    I FINALLY decided to sign up for the newsletter and it's totally worth it…HUGE help. Thank you!
    Add on: Reason #2 has been me for YEARS. I was always scared to buy clothes due to weight gain/loss. Soooo true. Wish I learned this in my 20s.

    Another reason people lose their fashion sense is age!! Especially this year—I don’t go anywhere but the grocery store!! I’m 71 and retired last May. I live in t-shirts and sweat pants! Nobody sees me, why spend money I don’t have on new clothes? Maybe next year there will be incentive for me to dress nicer! I still do my hair and my clothes are clean, but I have no reason to dress up!

    Erin I have learned so much from your channel, especially about basics and now I feel more confident about putting outfits together. I appreciate your sharing your expertise with us, I’am a older woman, however, I still want to look my best. Thank you so much for teaching us women. and will you please send me a basics wardrobe list for fall and spring. I’am a new Subscriber.

    Wow, you are taking this down to the real problem! So true, I too have been living with guilt when it comes to styling myself as if I am not deserving to spend money on myself. I’ve been struggling spending on quality because they tend to cost more and stuck with lower quality that only sits in my closets (because they don’t fit, doesn’t fits well, or they losses shape after wash). Thanks! I really enjoy watching this video and playing it over and over while going through my closet to keep reminding myself what to look for.

    But if "husband" is nr 2 on the list, doesn't that include taking care of yourself & your appearance? 😉 And if you don't have kids, it makes it nr 1? 😜
    I'm joking, I know it's a serious & important topic. Although I'm only 24 and me and my boyfriend (we've been together for 6 years) doesn't have kids yet. We've been pregnant with a baby girl, but had a late abortion because of medical reasons.
    I truly admire all the women that have the energy to wake up everyday and take care of their kids, work often full time & take care of the home and cook everyday…I'm exhausted just by going to work, I don't have any energy over for cleaning or even cooking on work days 😅 It makes me nervous & somewhat scared how I'll handle kids upon all that, but I guess it's like with other things in life..when you're in a stressful situation, somehow you get the strenght to handle it. Even though I'm in my mind comparing it to traumatic and tough situations I've been through in my young life, I guess you can still compare it in that way when it comes to handling a situation mentally and being able to go through it. ❤

    Honestly Erin, this is your best video ever. Because without this healthy mindset, 
    your wardrobe, style, etc. means nothing, and will never come to it's full fruition.
    Thank you for posting this, you're the best. Much love from NYC 👛 xx

    I think I have always dressed for my body type, but have lost 15 lbs and realize now that I can wear things now that I couldn’t before. I also feel guilty when my mom buys me clothes for Christmas 🎄 that I really don’t want to wear. I have some skirts that are too long and now want to wear a midi length. I put those other clothes away(ie. The long skirts), but have a hard time getting rid of them. Help!

    I used have a terrible closet and now I edit it all the time because I enjoy it. Everything fits and my hypotheticals are all put away in canvas storage bins at the top of my closet. I even edited for covid since I’m strictly working from home I don’t need my nice corporate attire so I put it all away. Everything is functional. It’s a life changer. I agree with everything you just said. I even checked my basics and I have everything on the list for both lists and it’s the first time I’ve seen it. Lol. Oh I need a couple of LBDs since I lost weight but I haven’t found anything I like yet. So I’m waiting for the right thing to pop up.

    Yes laundry,cooking,dishes,food shopping,child care, animal care and work. Let’s not Forget washing the floors and cleaning the kitchen and shower stalls and vacuuming. It really doesn’t leave a lot of time to go out on a shopping spree too long. If the store doesn’t have it I am out the door because I have to get home and make dinner. Then I look in the closet and there is an anything I like in there because I settled for some thing because I am in a rush and it was the cheaper option. So true.

    we do lose ourselves without even realizing it! Btw Erin a huge help would be styling a 16-18 size woman. I’d volunteer but….
    Do you have a friend? Know someone who would let you video the process. That would be. HUGE help!

    Wow… you really hit the nail on the head! Im sitting here with tears in my eyes because of what you said about “guilt”. I didnt even realize thats why I put myself on the bottom of the list. I’ll be 61 this Sunday (10/11). Raising our kids, I was always last on the list. It took me about 10 yrs after our youngest left home to be able to put myself higher on the list and “be selfish” with my purchases. It was nice to give myself permission to buy a name brand bag just because I liked it. Six yrs ago we became legal guardians of 2 of our grands. They had so many emotional needs from what they had been through with an addict mother, plus they had absolutely nothing when we took them. Every penny we made had to buy clothing (everything!), shoes, bedding, furniture and food for them. I once again, put myself on the bottom of the list. I’ve also gained 30 lbs in that 6 yrs so my self esteem has taken a hit too. When I do try to shop, nothing fits comfortably, I get frustrated and I end up with nothing and then shop for the grandkids…

    AMAZING VIDEO!! I would say that I look very similar to you and my age is similar as well and I love your style. My closet is very organized with same hangers & everything fits. I probably don't have all the basics, but my problem(s) are my giant boobs! 😵 This changes the way the style looks and I don't know how to style my body so I don't want to spend money on expensive clothes that I'm going to never wear. I'm always hiding my body in terrible clothes when my nice things stay in the closet hanging there. I wish you could help me. 😪❤

    Such a powerful message! The guilt struggle is so real! I think it’s especially tough for stay at home moms. When you’re not bringing in an income, it’s tough to buy for ourselves when there are so many other expenses and needs that have to be met. We often sacrifice our needs for the family. But you’re so right! If we don’t take care of ourselves, we’re not the wife and mother that our family needs us to be.

    Honestly, I have very few of the basics. I went the whole summer without makeup, a first for me. Someone told me once, when you organize your life, you'll want to organize your environment. Home, space, & closets will organize. As much as I've overcome, I'm dealing with a narcissistic employer & haven't spent time taking care of me. I'm working on this. The Pandemic, has left little room for shopping for me but I'm saving & am going to use your basics checklist as soon as I can.

    OMG Erin! I've been watching your older videos and you have always given very helpful tips (for which I thank you 🤗)! But this video was incredibly on the button!!!! It's so, so true! Us Moms have to get out of that frame of mind that everyone else in the family is so much more important than us! We love them so much and they, especially our children, fill out every thought everyday! So we end up last in our minds, inevitably so. Oh well, just wanted to THANK you for this awesome video! Today I'll be going through my wardrobe to clear out my old (very, very old) clothes and donate whatever I can….😱 Sorry, this msg is too long!!!!

    age 59 and most/all of these "reasons" hit very close to home. I think I may have lost me 30 or more years ago, and I don't know where the hip/cool/sophisticated/chic me went. I am hoping, with you and your team… it can be found again! Thank you (through tears) thanks
