This woman is an insane shop-a-holic without an original thought in her body.  She copies the mannequins and the J. Crew catalogs exactly and buys, buys, buys, buys.  I literally just went through her instagram for the last 4 weeks and totaled up everything she bought (Yes, I have no life, Yes, I have real work I should be doing, No, I don't care) and in the past month, she has purchased a staggering $9,044 worth of clothing and accessories (Even assuming that she received 30% full price items as J. Crew usually does promos, that is $6,330 worth of J. Crew clothes and accessories IN A MONTH) (and I'm sure I missed some things because I couldn't keep track of the five hideous "statement" necklaces she purchased (at $148 a pop)).  

 

And she doesn't wait for sale.  She buys immediately when the items come out.  

 

Her photos are always taken from the top, which only highlights her silly-swirly hairdo. Everything she buys is the most amazing "beauty" she's ever seen.  I can't even imagine what her closet looks like if she buys this much in one month.  

 

She does the whole "like to know" BS and affiliate linking, so I'm wondering how much of this stuff is purchased with credits.  Still, its obscene.  If you go back through her blog archives, she's shopped like this for years and years.  Purchasing thousands of dollars of new arrivals every single month.

Ooh, I'm glad you started a thread on her.  I am astounded every time she posts something that literally just came out – you're right when you say she doesn't wait for sales, she pays straight-up full price for everything.  A lot of what she buys are the Collection pieces, which are $$$$.  J Crew has sent her to NYFW – a bunch of people I follow on IG have re-posted her pics.  others-221  

She is a professor… I don't know what her husband does but they have to be pulling in a TON of cash for her to be able to afford so much stuff!  (Or maybe she just has massive cc debt, who knows.)

I can't believe how many raving comments she gets when she posts a pic – she literally copies the outfits from J Crew, as you said.  Zero originality.  And I don't see how her blog reviews are helpful whatsoever – I think I have only seen maybe one or two times where she hasn't OMGLOVED!!!!! something.

Double-posting to point out how stupid the liketit (hee) is for her because literally 99% of her stuff comes from J Crew.  Why do you need an email to tell you this?

I found this girl on insta when I worked at J.Crew and I wanted to see how other people styled J.Crew pieces.

 

She reminds me of another version of "PTMT". yuck.

 

If she makes her money back and then some, I understand how she would just go out and get the pieces right away, 'cause that's what J.Crew wants you to do. Pay full price. But anyone and their mom knows everything at J.Crew goes on sale eventually….

hahaha so true… Rynetta is to J.Crew as PTMT is to Nordstrom.  Also, while she seems sweet, I don't understand why people think she's a big deal.  Like iterated above, shopping at one place and dressing like the mannequins isn't style, it's being a shopaholic who can dress themselves. boring

 

Also, I love your username and would actually read that ____&____ blog with glee.

I love how J.Crew does their styling for their catalogs and for NYFW. Rynetta does J.Crew circa early 2000s. very preppy. 

 

and you are like the 3rd person to say they love my UN. i just think about the 9054860945 blogs with the ____ & _____ mantra and how much i hate it.

While I do think she spends a lot of money, she is a pretty sweet person and supports other bloggers unlike half these other chicks.

And before someone suggests it based on my username, I am NOT Rynetta! sani_elephantdance

Holy shit, $9,044?!puke

 

I first came across Rynetta's blog when I was googling for a review of something from J. Crew. Completely useless. I think it's ridiculous that this woman with a Ph.D. can't be bothered to put together an original/intelligent/informative thought when it comes to "reviewing" whatever crap she buys, other than to say that she LOVES it. Then again, she can't even put an original outfit together herself so idontknow

I find the amount of money she spends to be crazy. Six – nine thousand dollars in 4 weeks?! However, I also agree that she seems very nice– and I do appreciate your point that she is always referencing or tagging other bloggers. I actually also appreciate that she is not a stick thin blogger, so I wish her reviews had more detail to them.

She does seem sweet bandwagon I have commented on her blog and she acknowleges each comment anyone leaves.

As for the spending - it's mind blowing.  If I was spending that much my jewels wouldn't be of the costume variety.  However she is in her late 30s, has a good career, no kids and she has said she doesn't want children.  I guess in her situation disposable income takes on a whole new meaning.  This photo of her is one of my all time favourites I was never sure if the resemblance was deliberate or not.

I'm so glad you started this thread! It really hasn't been that long that she has done the Like it to Know it. She didn't bother me when she was just buying ALL THE STUFF before she utilized the affiliate links, but now it seems like she is buying even more and it comes off as greedy. It seems like her husband knows what she buys and is supportive of her, so I can't hate on that. And I really think J Crew owed it to her to send her to fashion week, she spends so much money! I'm thinking Gigi is the one who told her she needed to monetize, since she has been going to blog conferences and ramping up the links on her site. At least Gigi seems pretty honest about the process though.

She's too sweet and intelligent for me to snark on.
