I didn't notice the same-ness of all her purchases until she bought a pair of plaid loafers from J Crew Factory almost identical to a pair that were released retail that she ALSO bought several months prior.  This caught my eye in particular because I had bought the same ones retail and I thought, why the hell does she need both pairs?  They're almost the exact same shoe!  And PLAID loafers, nonetheless.  Not like, ok hey I have two pairs of black flats.  That, I get.

If she wears older items she still link$ to new stuff.

just to give you ladies an idea of the repeats of the same buy, SAME blazer, 6 colors, she bought them all in the matter of 1-2 months, this is not counting the other 100 blazers she owns. (yes i have a lot of time today, bite me)

Nine, ten, eleven

 

 

 

 

There's something wrong with you to have 11 of the same blazer.  At at least $200 a pop!    I can see two or even three (one black or navy, one color and one of the novelty ones), but eleven is bonkers.

damn! thank you ladies for finding more…holy shit 11 of the same blazers!!! scared I mean I understand buying multiples sometimes when the style fits you and if its on super sale you grab another color or 2, but 11????? ALL within the matter of months? Isn't that a little compulsive?

I haven't really read this blog much (just glanced over it because of this hilarious thread) but… does she ever post pictures of her closet?  Can I have her last-season cast-offs?

Gaslighting my own farts since 2015.

Ha. I remember following her after she followed me; I unfollowed after 24 hours. She's a mess.

Oh I am so glad there is a separate thread now for Rynetta, there was some discussion of her (and I posted a comment there) in the Gigi thread. Granted I am also an avid JCREW shopper, but like majority of the people who has common sense, knows that everything eventually goes on sale or promo there. I like Gigi and a few other JCREW bloggers who also shops a ton, but they don’t always buy/keep everything they try on and majority of them will make comments like “while I love this piece, I would wait to get it on sale”.

 

I have to say I had been extremely curious as to how much Rynetta spent a month on avg. at JCREW. She does buy everything at full price when its first released. A blazer is about $200 a pop, pencil skirt is anywhere between $120-$200 depending on the material. Collection pieces are about double the price. BUT what truly kills me though is that she buys the SAME SHIT every month, on repeat – Blazers, pencil skirts and loafers. I think she buys every single pencil skirt in different material and colors every season if it comes in her size, same goes for Blazers. Off the top of my head I think she has at least 4 of the Regent Blazer in different colors from this past season. Don’t get me started on those floral necklaces. I also own a few statement necklaces from JCREW and I love them, the problem with JCREW is, if you own 1 piece, you owned every one of them. They are just variations on colors of basically the same design.

 

I am sure Rynetta is harmless, compare to these other vapid bloggers but I just don’t get what the hell her blog is for. Is she an English Professor? She hardly writes more than 2 sentences on her blog post. Which is fine, if you are more a picture-centric blogger, but she pose at most 2 pics of her “review” of the merchandize, from the same angle (top down) which is probably a flattering angle but if you intend to be a “review” blog, shouldn’t you be snapping pics of different angles to see how the clothing fit? I say this a 100 times, I just don’t get what the point of her blog is.  

 

I've said it in the comment with my other post, I think there is so much potential Rynetta can do with her blog because she isn't your typical petite white blonde hair stick-figure size 000000000 blogger, and she is supposedly intelligent. SO why not just invest in a little more time and creativity in your blog? It can't be taking that much more time then what she already spent on snapping pictures of JCREW mannequins every week.   

This. I usually shop online for clothes and appreciate when I come across a good review that provides details about fabric, measurements, overall quality, etc. Since I'm short and an odd fit on things, that sort of info is really helpful to me before I make a purchase. I'm familiar with Gigi, but who are other "J. Crew bloggers" that do decent reviews? I agree Rynetta's blog has SO MUCH potential precisely because she doesn't fit the boring mold of the skinny blonde blogger, and as an academic I'm sure she has the ability to write well about all sorts of topics, so yes why not put a few minutes' more effort into writing reviews all of the regent blazers and biella loafers!

I agree with everyone about the crazy spending Rynetta does.  Whenever there is a new J.Crew rollout, she always buys full price.  I remember a few years ago she posted a gift her J.Crew personal sent her for her birthday. I'm sure Rynetta helps make that personal shopper so much money via commission. 

 

Like others have said, I really love that Rynetta and Gigi are WOC bloggers when most J.Crew bloggers are thin white women that fit a certain ideal.  I love that Gigi began opening up about being an actor/voice actor has really brought a new light to her blog.  Similarly, I think Rynetta should open up a bit more and show her personality more. As is, all we get is "LOVE" or "Must have" as reviews. I would love a more thorough review and criticism behind each "LOVEd" item.

As for other J.Crew bloggers that are decent with reviews.

 

I like Gigi's Gone Shopping, she's been doing it a while.

http://shoperarach.blogspot.com is good, but has a mix of BR/J.Crew/Anthro

http://1moreshoppingblog.blogspot.com is boring, but does consistent Loft/J.Crew dressing room shots

http://audreybella.blogspot.com seems to have fit issues and I question some of her choices, but is good for Tory Burch/J.Crew/BR/Anthro dressing room reviews. She's petite, which I appreciate.

Mountains o' Th

hijacked I usually check Shoperarach's blog because we are the same size, we differ in tastes but that's beside the point.  However I can't tell you how long I have hoped some one would serve her with an underwear intervention.  Holy VPL scaredcall Trinny nd Suannah ASAP. 

 

As for WOC blogs I like Moody girl in style.
