BROWS FOR BREAKFAST: WHAT IS IT AND WHY DOES IT EXIST?


_______________________________________________________________

WHAT IS BROWS FOR BREAKFAST?____________________________________________________________


This account is a direct reflection of myself: 

"one part nerd, one part conscientious fashion felon (I break aaaalll the rules)."

This is not to say that everything I buy or wear is socially conscious, ethically made, and quality driven, but I’ve made an attempt to steer clear of impulse buys and become an informed shopper. 
If I’m going to buy crap I want to know that it’s crap and participate in it willingly (this does not happen nearly as often as it did before my sartorial enlightenment, I assure you). Likewise, I enjoy buying pieces I believe will last the test of time and my own sartorial caprice.

WHAT KINDS OF POSTS CAN I EXPECT?

_______________________________________________________________

I like to research materials and workmanship details, apply said research to buying one or two pieces I hope to wear forever, and review said pieces for others like me who hate buying crap and don’t like living on ramen to fund sartorial choices. 
Here's a quick breakdown of what you can expect to see here:


1HOW TO  BUY CLOTHES YOU WON'T REGRET
2. HOW TO HAVE FUN WITH A LIMITED WARDROBE - STYLING TIPS
3. DETAILED REVIEWS (including):
  • MEASUREMENTS from the brand site as well as measurements I have taken 
  • WEARABILITY i.e. whether the clothing is universally inner wear friendly, whether you can bend without flashing, and whether the outfit feels like a torture chamber vs a hygge cocoon. 
  • MATERIAL AND WORKMANSHIP
  • VERSATILITY: how many ways you can wear the piece
5. PETITE GIRL FRIENDLY 
I’m petite (5 foot everything) . My reviews will generally include pieces with petite friendly sizing. Please help me too and send me your suggestions for petite brands. You can contact me here.

MY JOURNEY 

_______________________________________________________________

It all began quite insidiously...like a pot set to a slow boil...an interest that spiralled into a small obsession.

"I say obsession not addiction, because growing up around the endless consumption of the late nineties and early aughts, peaking with the influencer led fashion conglomerate conspiracy, I know very well the feeling of a slow sprung addiction. "


Though I never had egregious spending habits, and I consciously rebelled against the idea of trend slavery, I never felt satisfied with what I had. Every morning was riddled with sartorial anxiety…I had everything and not enough at the same time. 
Remember that pot set to slow boil, that was my life,  and like anything avoided and unattended for long enough, it'll eventually boil over and burn you. Either the emotional, or literal baggage, eventually caught up to me and I knew I had to make changes.With a lot of purposeful, maybe emotional editing, I Mary Kondo-ed my life and closet. 

"While throwing "stuff" out I managed to gain, in exchange, quite a bit of "knowledge"...funny how when you throw out the useless the useful has room to fill its place. "


So here I am to share, and help others who are on the same journey as I am...an uncluttered closet to and uncluttered mind.
