Whenever I go on a buying scavenger hunt for These Odds I try to make sure that everything I grab makes sense and is along the same wave-length as my brand vision. Last weekend I went looking for some pieces that I thought would mix well with the line-up I have currently but I couldn't find anything that screamed "These Odds". One thing that I like to do when buying is:

1. Check for wear and tear - no one wants to buy something that looks like a Tasmanian Devil had it's way with it. 

2. Colors (i.e. Violet/Gold Earrings)

3. Patterns/Lines - are they flattering & timeless?  (i.e. 70's Inspired Pants)

4. Would I wear this?   (i.e. The Cloche)

5. Would the person behind their tablet/cell/laptop/desktop look at this and say to themselves "Ok...I need this like...yesterday!"  (i.e. the ever popular Cosby Sweater)

Everything is carefully picked LOVE. If I feel iffy about a piece I usually don't even bother.
