Reviewed: Why Fashion Girls Love Kit Undergarments
Aside from fashion and beauty, what are some things that are currently bringing you comfort?
SH: Art and yoga have been really helpful for my mental state during social distancing. I don’t get a lot of free time since we have two young kids, but whenever I get a chance, I will steal a little me time with a virtual yoga class. Art has always been very therapeutic for me, so when the kids and I started tie-dying, we started experimenting with Kit Undergarment products. My partner, Jamie, was obsessed and said, “We should sell these! People will love them!” She was right: Kit Undergarments now offers made-to-order tie-dye items, and I do every order by hand, which is amazing for my creativity, but my poor hands are taking a beating.
JM: Crafting, reading, walking, swimming, and cooking have helped my mental state. We’ve done a lot of painting and drawing for the new baby’s room: things to frame for the walls. I’ve finished two books during quarantine, which feels like an accomplishment given I’m chasing around a 20-month-old a good majority of the time. I try to do at least 10,000 steps a day (and am very committed to reaching that goal because of my Fitbit). When I say I swim, I mean I spend as much time as I can floating in the water: It feels so good on my muscles and body. I’ve been cooking anything from lemon tarts (weird pregnancy craving) to daily lunches for my family. Zooms and FaceTimes with friends and group texts help me stay sane and feel connected to the people I love.
What are your favorite brands?
SH: I wear a lot of vintage, but I also love Dôen, Re/Done, Khaite, The Row, and Totem.
JM: I love The Row, Khaite, La Ligne, Proenza Schouler, and vintage. I love vintage from all over the world. L.A., in particular, has incredible vintage: Scout, Recess, The Way We Wore, The Paper Bag Princess. I also love ReSee, which is online.
What’s one fashion or beauty trend we shouldn’t sleep on and why?
SH: I’m obsessed with dry brushing and Déesse Pro LED light mask. I have noticed such a difference since I started using both of those.
JM: I use a lot of Versed products, Isla products, my Déssee Pro LED light mask (religiously), and a skin routine à la Shani Darden, which includes her products as well as others she recommends. Oh, and I always use my C & The Moon body scrub. It makes my skin so soft and smell oh-so-good.
