POP QUIZ: WHAT’S YOUR REALREAL STYLE PROFILE?
Know thyself. Philosophers have debated this maxim’s meaning since everyone was wearing linen tunics, but superficially, it’s a great piece of shopping advice. Are you the kind of person who impulse-buys the latest trends without regret? Then you need to know exactly when the newest pieces drop. Do you have a die-hard uniform that works for you absolutely everywhere you go?
