We’re trying out something new today –– something we thought we’d wanna know as a reader (and hopefully it’s something you wanna know too). Every month we get a full breakdown (from the one and only Caitlin) of what sold that month and what didn’t. It’s probably the meeting where we have the most fun, usually because we make it a happy hour so there’s typically some alcohol involved. While going through our September report, we thought to ourselves “you know what would be fun? If we made this a post and the readers can get involved in the fun of learning what everyone liked & was buying this month.” So that’s just what we’re gonna do today, folks. I highly recommend you grab a drink, because this is basically the Oscars of Emily Henderson Design. The nominees for top items sold last month are…
I love when a candle makes the list for a number of reasons. The first is that they’re (usually) pretty affordable (this one’s only $16), and second is that I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many candles. Hence why I currently have 7 in my small studio apartment. And before you ask, no I DON’T light them all at once, I’m not a monster. This candle is particularly great because it’s whiskey and oak scented, which to me really screams Fall. It also has one of those thick wood wicks so it makes a lil crackling sound when it’s lit. Kinda like a fireplace but much smaller.
Madewell was having a HOT sale (and it’s still going on) so I constructed a full outfit, added it to my cart, then put it in the link up (as one who works for EHD does). This was the cardigan I linked, which is comfy, cozy, and gives me all the fall feels (and the bottoms may be on this list too *cough*spoiler alert*cough*number 7*cough). But back to the cardi, this one is so good because it’s got a lil ruffle on it and for some reason I’m only buying what I call “architectural sweaters” this year, which means they need to have a ruffle or cool structure to them in some way. This fit the bill perfectly (and it does so in cream and brown…take your pick).
I was happy to see this lamp from one of our latest projects: Suzanne’s bedroom reveal. This lamp is sorta like family, it’s been around a long time and in a number of our projects, and it just keeps getting better with age. I love it with the black shade OR the white shade. Plus you can also get the lamp with a black bottom instead of the wood if you’d rather. I should just write a love letter to Rejuvenation or maybe marry them…one of the two.
Okay so if you read the spoiler alert, you may not be that surprised about this one. BUT may I just point out that Madewell is the best and we love their jeans maybe too much…so I understand why this made the list. Madewell jeans are one of the finer things in life and the whole team loves them! Plus they last forever and are undeniably cute.
I’m just gonna come out and say it: I was on the fence about this blanket but now that it made this list I had no choice but to purchase. This was in our “how to get better sleep post” that was in partnership with Target’s new line, Casaluna, and BOY OH BOY is that collection good. Take it from someone who is not personally sponsored by Target…this stuff is some of my favorite Target has ever had to offer. There I said it. Check out the clay and sky blue bedding while you’re at it because I’m in loooooveeeee.
So the high rise flare jeans win the battle against straight leg jeans this time…perhaps because flare jeans are coming BACK WITH A VENGENCE. Oh and they work great w a boot (again, read: fall). Which do you guys prefer?
It’s easy to see why you guys liked this so much…I mean she’s beautiful AND affordable –– we couldn’t ask for more. Also, the caning on this guy is *chef’s kiss* Speaking of Target collections that are very good, the Studio Mcgee x Target one is all around 10/10.
There wasn’t just one piece from here because it’s THAT good. Everything is magical and beautiful. Exquisite work Tan & Etsy. Keep it comin.
Our sweet precious Arlyn linked this $12 wonder in the link up a few weeks back. The most hilarious part about this being #2 is the fact that we’re pretty sure we linked this before (like last year maybe?? That feels like 12 years ago) and you guys loved it as much then as you do now. Just saying this might be the best $12 ever spent because it NEVER goes out of style (and it’s comfy so that’s a big plus). Now the moment you’ve all been waiting for… DRUM ROLL PLEASE…
PAJAMAS! YOU GUYS! First, I gotta say this makes A TON of sense for #1. First off, it comes in mens, womens, children, and even dog sizes, so it truly appealed to everybody. Secondly, Emily bought it and was the one to link it, meaning we’ve all been #emfluenced pretty decently (we always are).
So what are yer thoughts? Did ya like this? It was an emotional rollercoaster journey to get us here, but through the shock, happiness, and fear, we pulled through and made it to the end. Drop a comment and let us know if we should keep doing this or if this had zero interest to you. We’d love some good ole feedback. Happy Almost Friday!
