Top Ten

August Top Ten

We are back for another monthly round up of the most purchased items from the previous month. I always love these posts because I enjoy seeing which items you ladies loved the most and which ones took a back seat. I always want to make sure that I bring you the best content and sale round ups so looking over this data for trending items, categories and retailers helps me plan similar content for the next month and hopefully you enjoy seeing behind the scenes a little bit too!

To shop any of the below items, simply click on the picture and it will take you to the retailers site to purchase! Also, if you enjoy these types of post and are curious about how I obtain this data and track sales on the back end, scroll down to the bottom of this post for more information on that!

Top Ten Purchased Items


10. Walmart Peasant Top
The best $15 Free People dupe I’ve found in awhile. It comes in 7 colors and runs true to size. It does shrink in the wash so you might want to size up!

9. Walmart Moto Jacket
If you love the BLANKNYC moto jackets but not the price tag or if you live somewhere that doesn’t get that cold, this jacket is for you! It’s just $25, comes in two great neutral colors, and is made of a cotton material so it’s not too hot.

8. Old Navy Coat
If you love the look of the J Crew coats but not the price, this coat is a great alternative! I own the past two years versions of this coat and have loved each one. I always get my true size, an XS, but if you are planning to wear multiple layers underneath, I would size up. It also comes in black.

7. Old Navy Pocket Cardigan
This cardigan is SO good you won’t believe it is from Old Navy. It is the same style as the popular Madewell ones with the same soft feel too. It runs true to size and comes in several colors.

6. Sunglasses Organizer
If you are wanting to display your sunglasses in your room or laundry room, this is a great option! It fits either 10 or 12 pairs of sunglasses and is just $20!

5. Macbook Pro Laptop Case
$17 Macbook Pro laptop case comes with 4 pieces: a top case, bottom case, keyboard cover and screen protector. You have over 20 patterns to choose from. I got the pink marble and the quality is great!

4. Walmart Peasant Top
A great $15 work to weekend top. It’s peplum heel so adorable and it comes in 4 colors/patterns.

3. A&F Straight Jeans
I love these so much that I own them in two washes! They are a true denim with little stretch so if in between sizes, size up. I own a size 24 and 25 and love both fits.

2. SLIP Silk Pillowcase 
These rarely go on sale and this one is 50% off! If you aren’t familiar with silk pillowcases they have so many benefits for your hair and skin. The number one being that they allow you to go much longer in between hair washes! See more about the benefits in this blog post here.

1. BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket 
The number one seller by a landslide. It keeps selling out but it’s fully stocked right now! This jacket is a staple in my Fall/Winter wardrobe. It instantly makes any outfit chic! Even over a dress and sneakers! I got my true size (an XS), but if you are planning to wear sweaters underneath, size up!


And as a reminder on how I obtain the monthly top ten data…

I use an affiliate program called rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any link- whether it be from my Instagram, Liketoknow.it app or blog, that takes you to a product page on a retailer’s site and rewardStyle is able to track that it originated from me. Some affiliate programs will pay the influencer for every click that they generate from their site. RewardStyle pays per purchase made. This means that if you click on one of my links and then end up purchasing that item, I will get a small commission (usually between 7-12%).  Many bloggers use this same program as part of their revenue source.

Because I use this service I do have access to data analytics. This means I can track what items are clicked on and purchased. I cannot see who clicked on each link or what other items might have been purchased. For example, if you click on my silk pillowcase link and then purchase a swimsuit and a top in the same transaction, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and that the pillowcase link is how you got to the retailer’s site.

These analytics are incredibly important to me because it allows me to see what all of you are liking. At the end of the day, this little blog business of mine is meant to be a resource for all of you so having the ability to track and measure each product’s success is invaluable. Coming from a Finance background, I tend to geek out over the analytics side of it as I find it incredibly intriguing what all of you are liking, buying and clicking on the most! It gets my gears turning because I genuinely want to bring you products that you are going to love and want to buy (at the right price point of course)!

Like I mentioned, this little blog is a full time business for me which means I am so appreciative when you choose to click and shop through my links – whether that be on Instagram or the blog. I have poured everything I have into being a resource for all of you so that hopefully it makes your life a little bit easier. I know that shopping through my links is an extra step for you, but please know it makes all the difference to me. It is how I am able to continue sharing great deals, try on sessions, and everything else. O and it allows me to pay my bills 🙂

All of that is to say, shopping through my links does not cost you anything additional (the item is the same price), the retailer will just pay me a small cut since I am the one that referred you. Please know I am so thankful when you choose to shop through my links and give me credit for helping you score a great find!

June Top Ten

We are back for another monthly round up of the most purchased items from the previous month. I always love these posts because I enjoy seeing which items you ladies loved the most and which ones took a back seat. I always want to make sure that I bring you the best content and sale round ups so looking over this data for trending items, categories and retailers helps me plan similar content for the next month and hopefully you enjoy seeing behind the scenes a little bit too!

The past couple of months I have started sharing more of my Amazon and QVC finds and I’d say by the number of top sellers from these places you ladies are definitely loving them too! That certainly doesn’t mean that I will stop sharing my favorite items from places like NordstromAbercrombieRevolve and Old Navy!

To shop any of the below items, simply click on the picture and it will take you to the retailers site to purchase! Also, if you enjoy these types of post and are curious about how I obtain this data and track sales on the back end, scroll down to the bottom of this post for more information on that!

Top Ten Purchased Items


10. Walmart Maxi Dress

Walmart Dress

This $16 maxi dress has placed in the top ten for several months! It is insanely soft, has pockets, adjustable straps and comes in 10 colors! It runs true to size.

9. Walmart Leopard Swimsuit

Walmart Swimsuit Haul

You’d never guess this swimsuit was from Walmart it’s so good and under $15! The top runs small so I suggest sizing up while the bottoms run true to size.

8. Abercrombie Overalls

Abercrombie Shortalls

The best overalls I’ve found to date. The color I have (light wash) is no longer available but the dark wash is and I like it better! They fit true to size. I’m wearing an XS

7. Free People Dress

Free People Maxi Dress

Wait till you see the back of this cute maxi dress! It’s a gorgeous dress to dress up or down. It does run a bit oversized but I suggest getting your true size.

6. Pearl Headband

Amazon Pearl Headband

These pearl headbands have been ALL of the rage right now. The one I have is a $25 dupe for the $150 Lele Sadoughi headbands. I also found a $1 Amazon option that has great reviews from other bloggers. I REPEAT ONE DOLLAR!!

5. Amazon Dress

Amazon Cocktail Dress

I still can’t believe this dress is from Amazon! It’s SO good and under $30! I have the lavender color but it comes in about 10 gorgeous colors. It runs true to size. I’m wearing the small but could have done an XS.

4. Amazon Swimsuit

High waisted swimsuits

A top seller for months now, this $25 scalloped bikini is the cutest thing and best quality too. The top is padded and the material is SO soft. Overall it has amazing coverage and comes in several colors. Size up! I am typically a XS and got the small.

3. Slip SIlk Pillowcase

Silk Pillowcase Review

Ever since I found my silk pillowcase on TJMaxx’s website for over 50% off, y’all went crazy! They are a bit of a splurge and never go on sale so finding them at 50% off is a steal! If you haven’t read my post on why I will never go back to a cotton pillowcase and the benefits for your hair and skin, read it here.

2. MicroDermMD System

The best at home microdermabrasion product! Such a great remedy for exfoliating, removing dry skin and dirt as well as smoothing. Forgo two facials and invest in this! So much more bang for your buck.

1. Isle of Paradise Tanning Kit

These tanning drops are all the rage right now and are constantly selling out at retailers. I use shade dark and add it to my face moisturizer 2-3 times a week! If you are new to QVC you can use TAKE5 for $5 off.


And as a reminder on how I obtain the monthly top ten data…

I use an affiliate program called rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any link- whether it be from my Instagram, Liketoknow.it app or blog- that takes you to a product page on a retailer’s site and rewardStyle is able to track that it originated from me.

Top Ten From 2018

Top Ten Purchased Items


Each month during 2018 I shared the monthly top ten selling items purchased by all of you! This information is super helpful to me so I can plan out future content based on what you all are liking and buying and on the other hand what you don’t care for. Looking back at the top selling items from 2018, I think it’s safe to say you girls LOVE your designer dupes. Part of me thinks I should devote 100% of my time in 2019 to finding designer dupes because they are always the most requested from you ladies! See below for our favorite dupes and the top ten from 2018!

10. SIDE SLIT TEE

Cyber Monday Sales

Tee linked HERE. Very similar option with more sizing availability linked HERE.

9. FUNNEL NECK TOP

September Top Ten Purchases

Comes in 4 colors and linked HERE. Great basic, work appropriate top.

8. TIE WAIST WORK PANTS

Cyber Monday Sales

All of my working ladies LOVED these. They are currently BOGO 50% off.

7. PAJAMA SET

Cyber Monday Sales

One of the top purchases all year plus these Target pajamas make the perfect gift. Size up! They also come in a short set HERE. I found the short set ran true to size.

6. OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

Cyber Monday Sales

Tan // Grey // Black
I am normally a size 7.5 and went with a size 38 in all 3 colors! Use the sizing chart online. They are currently 30% off if you buy 2 pairs.

5. BLANKNYC SUEDE SKIRT

4. SUNDAY RILEY UFO FACE OIL

This Sunday Riley oil that I swear by for hormonal acne has been a favorite of mine since 2017! I couldn’t believe y’all sold out Anthropologie’s stock a few weeks ago, placing it in the top 10 for the entire year! If you are just wanting to try the oil out, they have their smallest size bottle for just $40 here. It also comes in a trial kit here with 2 of my other favorite products (cleanser & lactic acid) if you are looking for an entire skincare system.

3. BLANKNYC SUEDE MOTO JACKET

2. HERMÉS & DAVID YURMAN BRACELET DUPES

October Top Ten

1. GUCCI BELT DUPES

September Top Ten Purchases

Cyber Monday Sales

The number one seller every single month are these Gucci dupe belts. They are getting harder and harder to come by as Amazon is cracking down on dupes. I’ve linked all above that are currently working. For size reference, the real belts come in two sizes, 0.8″ and 1.5″, so I suggest getting a dupe similar to those dimensions.

Top Ten Blog Posts


I spend a lot of time creating content for the blog and it’s always one of my favorite things to do at the end of the year to see which posts you ladies liked the most especially since it’s always eye opening to see how the analytics compare to how much time I spent on the posts. Sometimes they correlate and others they don’t. Sometimes I spend hours and hours on a post thinking you ladies will love it and then it’s a total flop. My goal for 2019 is to create more content that you ladies actually want to see by devoting my time creating the content that you request. You can bet to see a lot more dupes, try on sessions, and budget friendly finds! If there is anything else you want to see, let me know in the comments!

10. WEDDING DRESS CODES & STYLE GUIDE

Wedding Style Guide: Dress Codes, Etiquette and FAQ

Everything that you need to know about wedding dress codes and options to wear. Read post HERE.

8. LET’S TALK LASHES

Avon Lash Serum and Mascara

I tried a new lash serum to grow my natural lashes! Read the post HERE.

7. MINI DONUT RECIPE

This post is from 2016 but still one of my most visited! Read the post HERE.

September Top Ten

I am in shock that it’s October 1st! Mostly because I’m sitting here looking at all of my New Year’s Resolutions and realizing we are way closer to 2019 than I realized and I have yet to start so many things that I wanted to. I’ve been slacking on the blog the last couple of months with all of my travels but I plan on finishing out the year strong so if there is something you would like to see before the year is over, please let me know!

Now, continuing on with the monthly top favorites, or the most purchased items by all of YOU, it is no surprise that we have some “repeat offenders” but I was surprised to see that almost all of the top sellers were sweaters and cold weather items. It’s safe to say we are all ready for the fall weather! Several of September’s top selling items were top sellers for previous months as well such as the Gucci belt dupe (going strong for almost a year now!) and the Abercrombie off the shoulder sweater. If you enjoy these types of post and are curious about how I obtain this data and track sales on the back end, scroll down to the bottom of this post for more information on that!

Now presenting… September Top Ten!

September Top Ten

These high waisted ankle pants sky rocketed to the top of the leader board this month. It’s safe to say that Work Wear Wednesdays are not dead and I will be bringing you ladies lot’s more before the year is over! While these pants come in 8 colors, unfortunately there is very limited sizing left. I suggest sizing down if in between sizes as I tend to think Express runs on the bigger side.

September Top Ten Purchases

September Top Ten Purchases

Not only do I love love love these boots, I’ve received an overwhelming amount of good feedback on these. AND they are somehow still 40% off with code COZY40! The best way for me to describe them is almost like a stretchy scuba material. They are the only pair of boots that actually stay up on my legs because they are so stretchy, but do not stretch out. I can wear them with leggings, pants and even bare legged- they always stay up! They do run on the small side so I suggest sizing up at least a half size, full size if you plan to wear thicker socks. I got my true size (European 38 and I wear a true 7.5). They fit very snug. I’ve seen them on girls under 5″ and those over 6″ and they work for all heights! Also, I highly suggest expedited shipping if you want to receive them sooner than 4-6 weeks. I cannot sing these boots praises enough and yes I did pay for them myself and this is not sponsored:)

September Top Ten Purchases

This oversized sweatshirt keeps coming in and out of stock of the camo print but if you can snag it, DO IT! It’s long enough to wear with leggings which makes it a crowd favorite plus it comes in 15 colors so even if you aren’t a camo fan, I highly suggest this style sweatshirt in all of the colors. It fits true to size but if in between sizes, size up!

September Top Ten Purchases

This fan favorite sweater from last year is back! It is one size fits all but I’d say it fits like a medium. It also comes in white and is still 40% off with code COZY40%. Again I highly suggest getting expedited shipping if you want this sweater sooner than 4-6 weeks.

September Top Ten Purchases

September Top Ten Purchases

This sweater has been a top seller for 3 months now and for good reason! It personally one of my most worn items. It’s light weight enough to be worn with shorts which is good for us Southern girls who can’t quite rock over the knee boots just yet. It fits oversized but runs true to size. I wear an XS in this sweater. If they don’t have your size, I highly suggest checking out Abercrombie’s sweater collection because they are absolutely killing it right now!

September Top Ten Purchases

September Top Ten Purchases

What do you know- another sweater! This sweater is currently 50% off + free shipping with code SURPRISE. It also comes in a pretty pink as well. It runs true to size but since a lot of sizes are sold out I suggest sizing up in petite sizing. I’m wearing an XS regular but could have done a small petite!

September Top Ten Purchases

September Top Ten Purchases

Every time I post these sock booties, you girls go CRAZY! They are just $30 right now with code ZZGET15. They run true to size if you don’t plan to wear socks, size up a half size if you do want to! I know the retailer might shock you but I promise they are great quality!

September Top Ten Purchases

It’s no surprise that the Gucci belt dupe stays in the top ten every single month. It is now available in 3 sizes: smallmedium and large. And good news because they brought the brown belts back!

September Top Ten Purchases

September Top Ten Purchases

This coat was a top seller last year and I’m so glad that they brought it back this year! It’s a total steal and while it might pain you to think about buying a coat this early, I promise you it will sell out ASAP! Last year, it was already sold out by now. I suggest sizing up if wanting to layer underneath. It is currently 30% off (discount applied at checkout).

September Top Ten Purchases

I know it is hard to see in this picture, but this plush tunic was another hot commodity both last year and this year! It comes in 4 colors and is under $25 + 30% off! Perfect to wear with leggings and over the knee boots plus i’ve heard it’s a good one for teacher since it’s SO comfortable and covers your bottom. It runs true to size and if they don’t have your size stocked, you can size up in petite sizing! For ex: i’m normally an XS regular but would get a small petite.

And as a reminder on how I obtain the monthly top ten data…

I use an affiliate program called rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any link- whether it be from my Instagram or blog- that takes you to a product page on a retailer’s site and rewardStyle is able to track that it originated from me. Some affiliate programs will pay the influencer for every click that they generate from their site. RewardStyle pays per purchase made. This means that if you click on one of my links and then end up purchasing that item, I will get a small commission (usually between 7-12%).  Many bloggers use this same program as part of their revenue source.

Because I use this service I do have access to data analytics. This means I can track what items are clicked on and purchased. I cannot see who clicked on them or what other items might have been purchased. For example, if you click on my Abercrombie shorts link and then purchase a swimsuit and a top in the same transaction, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and that the shorts link is how you got to the retailer’s site.

These analytics are incredibly important to me because it allows me to see what all of you are liking. At the end of the day, this little blog business of mine is meant to be a resource for all of you so having the ability to track and measure each product’s success is invaluable. Coming from a Finance background, I tend to geek out over the analytics side of it as I find it incredibly intriguing what all of you are liking, buying and clicking on the most! It gets my gears turning because I genuinely want to bring you products that you are going to love and want to buy (at the right price point of course)!

June Top Ten

Continuing on with the monthly top favorites, or the most purchased items by all of YOU, it is no surprise that we have some “repeat offenders”. Several of June’s top selling items were top sellers for previous months as well such as the Gucci belt dupe and Abercrombie shorts.

Now presenting… June Top Ten!

 

These sandals jumped to the top of the leader board last week real fast! Over 100 of y’all bought these in one day! I bought them and brown and black. Since they don’t have half sizes, I sized up to an 8 from a 7.5 but regretted not getting the 7. I will say I think they do run true to size though. For $12.99 they look just like these Steve Madden ones but for a fraction of the cost. In fact, Payless has quite a few good shoes right now and they are all included in the BOGO 60% off sales so most are under $15!

 

It’s no surprise that the Gucci belt dupe stays in the top ten every single month. It is now available in 3 sizes: small, medium and large.

I have owned this pair of jeans since last Fall and once they went under $20 you ladies went crazy for them! They are so darn comfortable mostly because they are super stretchy. Honestly they are the next best thing after leggings and the best part is that they come in multiple colors and lengths (petite, regular and tall). They run true to size. I wear a 25 short.

This was my first month in a long time to show you ladies how to style one piece multiple ways and it’s safe to say y’all are fans because this dress was by far a top seller. I love that not only is it appropriate for work, it would be so cute layered as a midi skirt too!

These joggers surprised me how fast they made it into the top sellers! I loved them so much myself that I snagged one color in store and then ran home and ordered the other two. They are now on sale for under $40 but make sure to size down. I got an XXSP and normally wear an XS. I showed you ladies a couple ways to style them with a nicer blouse and pumps for a comfy chic office look. I’ve linked some of those blouses and shoe options below.

You ladies like your dupes! These Sam Edelman sandals were a hit as they are very similar to the $200 Tory Burch Miller sandals. They come in 6 colors and are now on sale for 40% off. Make sure to size up a half size!

This tank and shorts combo have placed in the top ten for fourth months in a row now so you know they are good. I own the tank in 6 colors and the shorts in 3 washes. I suggest sizing up in the tank (I wear a small) and the shorts (I wear a 25). The light wash is pictured above.

I sported more “hobo chic” outfits in June than probably socially acceptable but I’m glad you all loved them as much as I did. This sweatshirt is the second one that I own from The Daily Tay shop and is SO darn comfy. These $15 shorts aren’t bad either 😉 Both run true to size but I suggest sizing up in the sweatshirt for a more oversized fit.

I’m not sure what it was about this top, but it was a fan favorite! I love it for the warmer weather because it is nice and flowly so it doesn’t stick to you in the heat. It comes in 3 colors and is now 40% off! My favorite way to wear it is with a bralette.

After publishing my huge Wedding Style Guide, this dress proved to be the top rated wedding guest dress of the season! It comes in 7 colors and is so flattering. It features an open back, a lace overlay and hugs the booty just right! The ivory color is also a beautiful dress option for my brides for any engagement photos, bridal shower or rehearsal dinner and is currently 45% off!
