If you’re reading this, I assume you also follow the Instagram account for Down in the Hollow. If you follow the Instagram, you might watch my Stories. And if you watch my Stories, you might have noticed that every Friday for the last eight weeks, I have harped about a little something I like to call the Down in the Hollow Shopping Guide.
I realized I started this little feature without ever really explaining exactly what it was and so…here we are.
I have always loved grazing through my favorite shopping websites and trying to discover new online boutiques and different places to find unique and beautiful things. Although I keep myself *mostly* restrained on my shopping (my husband would disagree), I love just looking and finding. Even I don’t always add to cart. SO! To be more productive about all of my perusing, I decided to choose the best items available from all of my many shopping sources and publish them here every week on Fridays. It truly is a specifically curated collection of all of my favorite things on a weekly basis, all put together in one convenient location for you!
For instance, the jumpsuit featured in this post is one of the items in the Shopping Guide right now! And p.s. it’s $19 right now!
A few things to know about it:
It is not a blog post, it is a permanent page on my website. You can easily find it on the navigation bar at the top of my homepage.
So far, I’ve been putting 30-35 items on the Guide a week, but am thinking about dedicating more time to it and adding more if the demand gets high enough.
Every Friday, I completely re-do the Guide. This means that what’s there one week will not be there the next week. Every single Friday the Guide gets completely new items so there’s always something exciting to look forward to discovering!
Every Friday when I publish the new Guide, I also make sure to share a smattering of the items with Instagram on my Stories as well.
The items I choose for the Guide are all things I would buy or actually have bought myself. There will be options in the “affordable” category as well as some higher end designer pieces to fit every budget.
My hope for this Shopping Guide is that it becomes a resource for those who love following along with my little blog here. Need an outfit for an upcoming party? Shopping Guide. Need a new pair of heels for that outfit you got for date night? Shopping Guide. I think a common misconception I’ve been noticing when people comment on the Guide is that they think it’s a gift guide. Understandable, since I launched it so close to Christmas. But it is not, necessarily, a gift guide although I’m sure from time to time you might be able to find a few things that could work as gifts. But it is, at its core, a resource for all of you who, like me, love beautiful things and adding them your life.
So there it is, friends! Your explainer post on my new feature here on DitH that I hope is helpful for understanding what it is I’ve been yammering on about every Friday!
