    I don't even know where to begin! I totally needed every thing you've talked about in this episode. I had given up on clothes fitting me! I just assumed that they only made clothes that fit metrosexuals because they were the major market to sell to.

    The way you explain this makes so much sense! Even the closet sorting thing, it's such a great idea! And then the LifeProTip of shopping at secondhand stores: no sales people, plenty of selection, low prices, genius!!!

    And then you have all this great research and examples! Thank you so much!!!

      You're very welcome 💋

    I'm not really into shopping either, but I already work through my closet from time to time to give myself more identity.
    But you are right, it's a seemingly small thing that shows: I care.
    Guess I'm lucky, since I study theology most people look like they are straight out of 1850. So I always look fashionable!

      haha that's a definite plus :D

    Funny enough I just bought a bunch of new shirts over the last few weeks. Even got myself an awesome Motorhead hoodie (which you may have seen since you follow me on Instagram) and everyone loves it and says it looks great on me! It's pants I really need. We have a Savers here too and honestly I know exactly what you mean. They have damned near everything and in almost any size imaginable. Might hold onto a paycheck and pay them a visit. Shirts, I'm pretty good on for a while.

      good for you 💋

    Ugh! I hate this. But only because I know you're right. I hate shopping for clothes, not because I don't like to look nice, but I have no eye for fashion. Therefore I don't go shopping that often and end up wearing clothing out. Yeah, I could use some new duds. Never went shopping at a thrift store before, but I'll give it a try.

    Thanks Eve for putting this all together. Research, writing, recording all must take a lot of time. My only hope is that I/we can make you proud someday.

      Are you kidding, you guys make me proud every single day. You're my princes 💋

    Good afternoon Miss Eve,
    This has been an amazing and eye opening series but those three not so little words "Respect yourself today" really hit home for me because for a while there I felt I had lost a good bit of self respect and it feels great to have it back again and you've had a hand in that so keep up the great work and I'll do the same, you rock!!!
    Thank you.

    • A Eve on 2017-02-08 13:26:30 (UTC)

      You rock, Joe. Go get 'em, tiger ❤️

    You've really pointed out a blind-spot for me this week. I already decorate my house in the way I like and have slightly fussy soaps just because I enjoy them, and I was secretly hoping that I'd be ahead of the curve for a lot of your advice. This episode made me realize that most of my clothes advertise that I don't care about my appearance. I have a job where I might go a month without seeing a co-worker and most of the things in my closet are either ten years old or new versions of what I wore ten years ago. All of my jeans have flared legs because my girlfriend in college liked flared jeans on guys so that's what I bought. I never asked myself until today whether I liked flared legs on jeans, and I don't think I do. Thanks for holding up a mirror. Going to the thrift store this weekend. You're the best.

      Thank you so much, I'm so glad you got something out of this one. Good luck ❤️
