From the perfectly practical to the impulse purchases we don't regret at all.

Much like 2016, 2017 sucked. That meant that, on top of getting further into wellness trends and investing in enough palo santo to keep our apartments warm all winter, we also turned to shopping as a form of therapy. Whether that was finally getting our sartorial shit together in the form of closet reorganization or investing in the staple pieces of our dreams, these seemingly insignificant purchases went a long way in helping us feel a little bit better about the world around us — at least, until the next Twitter storm hit. 

While we may be looking forward to putting this dumpster fire of a year behind us, we're more than happy to keep these remnants of 2017 with us. Read on to get more info on our best purchases of the year, and maybe even snag one or two for yourself.
