Before I started ModestPop back in 2012, I didn't particularly like what was in my closet. I was in a wardrobe funk so to speak. We had a very limited budget. My husband was a recent law school grad and the jobs were slim pickings. We were also in the middle of the recession. I'm sure some of you in my age bracket (I'm 36 but seriously subconsciously think I'm still 27) can relate to trying to springboard a career during the recession. Not really a time where having a great closet was the biggest priority.
