Welcome to Dressed for My Day, where I’m looking back over the year to discover what is resonating most with you and with me. Yesterday I shared the 20 Most Popular Blog Posts of the year. That analysis really helped me understand what is bringing new readers to the blog. But today I’m focusing on reader purchasing habits. Remember, you are always welcome here even if you never purchase a thing through my blog. But obviously affiliate sells are one of my main sources of revenue, so it makes sense to see what types of products readers are purchasing the most through my blog and YouTube channel. Let’s look at the 21 most popular sellers of 2021.
This post contains affiliate links. When you shop through my links I potentially earn a commission on your purchases, but at no additional cost to you. Thank you so much for supporting my work here by shopping my links.
I’ll list these in typical countdown fashion, from 21 to 1. Also, keep in mind that I actually have no record of exact purchases. These analytics are based on purchased made when readers or YouTube viewers clicked through the correlating link. I’ll explain a little more with the #21 top seller.
Surprisingly, many of these items are still available. In fact, a few of them have been available for up to three years now. Others are not available, but I still linked to them when possible because stores sometimes offer similar items on those pages, in case you’re interested.
#21 – Handheld Clothes Steamer
I’ve been using a steamer for my clothes for years, especially as I transfer them from storage to my closet with the change of seasons. I actually use a bigger and bulkier one most of the time, but I featured the Hilife Handheld Clothes Steamer in this post on How I Change My Wardrobe Out Between Seasons.
Let me pause and explain these analytics a little better before we move on. My analytics show me that 70 purchases were made through my link to the Hilife Handheld Clothes Steamer. But in truth some of the purchasers may have pivoted and bought something else, either another steamer or a load of paper towels. Ha! But as the numbers go up in this list I think they become even more accurate. So I think it’s safe to say that these are indeed the 21 most popular sellers at Dressed for My Day in 2021. Make sense? Let’s move on!
#20 – Drawcord Cropped Pants
I shared these Drawcord Cropped Pants a couple of times I think, plus in a few How I Really Dressed for My Day posts. They were definitely some of my most worn pants in my closet this summer. I’d love to hear from you if you also purchased and enjoyed these.
I love using my Hanging Jewelry Organizer on my dresser. It’s definitely the easiest way to keep my necklaces tangle free and ready to wear. I do wonder if my less expensive jewelry might would stay tarnish-free a little longer if I kept them in my jewelry box. Thoughts? But I sure do enjoy the convenience of this stand!
I’ve been featuring this Leopard Print V-Neck Sleeveless Blouse on the blog and my YouTube channel for at least a year and a half now. In fact, it was in my list of favorite purchases last year and in my Top 20 Reader Favorites list last year. Ha!
And I’ve received some very snarky, rude comments on YouTube when I wore this Leopard Print V-Neck Sleeveless Blouse in this very popular video. Hahaha! I’ve finally learned not to let those bother me.
The Leopard Print V-Neck Sleeveless Blouse is still available and in all sizes. I think it’s a classic. It runs true to size.
#17 – Essential Camisole
I have a feeling the Essential Camisole should be higher up the list, but I’ve probably used multiple links for this one very popular item. Of course I featured this Essential Camisole most recently in my Winter Wardrobe Essentials Base Layers video.
I wear this Essential Camisole almost daily in the winter under my sweaters. But I’ve even worn it under dressy blouses, too. I love that they come in a variety of skin tones and have adjustable straps. I find them to run true to size.
#16 – Casual Washed Blazer
You will probably see me styling this Casual Washed Blazer again in the early spring because I love it that much. I’m glad that many of you do, too. Mine is in jungle green and it’s also available in indigo blue. Of course it’s part of Talbots’ Red Hanger Sale right now, so that’s a sweet deal. It’s marked down and you can get an additional 40% off.
#15 – Coach Turnlock Clasp Satchel
I purchased the Coach Turnlock Clasp Satchel in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and carried it often through the end of the summer and into the fall. Evidently many of you did the same!
While this bag is no longer available, I will say that I have found Coach bags much improved in quality this year. I purchased two this year for myself and I purchased this one for my daughter, and she says she gets compliments on it regularly.
I featured the Spongelle Bath & Body Sponges in my Christmas Gift Guide video, and lots of viewers purchased them. I hope all the recipients of these fun multi use sponges enjoy them as much as I have.
Learn more about these fun Spongelle Bath & Body Sponges in this video.
If a cashmere sweater didn’t show up on this list I’d have to question my calling. Ha! You know I love a cashmere sweater. And this Cashmere Essential V-Neck Sweater from Nordstrom is indeed a good one at a great price.
#12 – Sadie & Jane T-Shirts
When I started creating this top 20 list I forgot to check my smaller affiliate programs for those analytics. But after I checked the Sadie & Jane analytics I knew I needed to include the Sadie & Jane T-Shirts in my top 20 sellers. I’m not sure exactly which t-shirts readers and viewers purchased, but you’ve purchased well over 200 of these Christian tees.
If you’d like to learn more about this mom and daughters company, be sure to check out my blog post about Sadie + Jane.
I am pleased as punch that the Charles Stanley Life Principles Bible is in my top 20 list. And it probably should be higher up in our list because some of you may have also purchased it in the New King James version, which is a different link. Today I’m completing the reading through of the Bible for 2021 in this amazing devotional Bible. I’ve read it several times before and it never disappoints.
If you have purchased The Charles Stanley Life Principles Bible and are starting off with it tomorrow, congratulations! That is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. You’ll absolutely love it. And if you miss a day here and there, just hang in there. Keep going. Don’t stop. You will be so blessed for spending time in God’s Word daily.
We’re halfway through the list! Stay with me.
#10 – J.Crew Vintage Beach Rose Tee
I think I shared this J.Crew Vintage Beach Rose Tee about three times this spring and summer. And I wore it many more times. It’s not longer available, but keep an eye on J.Crew for similar sweet tees as spring unfolds.
I love having fun graphic tees in my wardrobe. They are so versatile.
I stored my spring and summer shoes and some of my warm weather clothese in these Wiselife Storage Bags. Evidently many of you did the same.
#8 – Corduroy Shacket
I shared multiple ways to style the new shacket trend in this post and evidently many of you jumped on board. The Corduroy Shacket comes in at number eight on our list. I’d love to hear how you’re liking this Corduroy Shacket if you purchased one.
Actually my exact Corduroy Shacket and the one you probably purchased is no longer available. But I’m linking to one that is very similar.
I’m surprised to see that the LeSylvie Crop Jeans by Frame are still available…in one size. But evidently many of my readers already purchased these great fitting, oh so soft cropped jeans.
#6 – Clip Dot Blouse
Here’s another one of my favorites that evidently resonated with readers and viewers, too. I’m pretty sure I featured this Clip Dot Blouse a few times, once on the blog and then it showed up in a couple of videos. Fortunately, it’s still available and in multiple colors.
I love this Clip Dot Blouse with my black suit, but it’s equally eye-catching with jeans.
The Clip Dot Blouse runs true to size and is available in nine colors.
#5 – Mellanni Bed Sheets
I have had the Mellanni Bed Sheets on my beds for several years now, and I just can’t bring myself to purchase any other kind. These Amazon Mellanni Bed Sheets are a great price, but they’re also extremely soft and cozy. I have them in white and in this pretty blue paisley.
I’m also very happy that The Wish Book Christmas is on our top 20 list. It’s always a pleasure to support a fellow author. Well, I say fellow author. I’ve only written non-fiction books, and I don’t put myself in the same category with Lynn Austin, for sure. But I was thrilled when I was asked to be on her book launch team. I was even more thrilled after I read the book.
If you missed out on The Wish Book Christmas it’s not too late to purchase one. I’d tuck it away for next Christmas…if you can resist this quick read right now! Lynn Austin is my favorite Christian fiction author, and I can highly recommend ALL of her books. I just finished Chasing Shadows a few weeks ago and it was wonderful, too.
I’ve been sharing about the Banana Republic Supima Cotton V-Neck Tee for no fewer than three years. It has been my go-to short sleeve tee, especially in the spring and fall for layering.
The Banana Republic Supima Cotton V-Neck Tee also comes in black, grey and dark grey. It use to run large and I wore a small. But I think they’ve adjusted the sizing and the newer ones I’ve purchased seem to run true to size.
Here’s another item I’ve been touting for about three years – maybe more. I absolutely love my Nic+Zoe Wonderstretch Straight Leg Pants. I was a little worried that I’d gained a few pounds and could no longer fit nicely into mine. But I tried them on a few days ago and they still fit great. These are classic, straight leg slacks at their finest.
I’m not even sure I’ve really featured these pants this year??? Let me brows the archives again…
Ahh, yes! Here they are in this amazing, classic outfit. First, here’s a closeup of the pants. I love the elasticized fit. It’s not so much an elasticized waistband as it is that the pants are completely elasticized. Make sense? As the website says, “Versatile straight-leg pants are designed for a clean, smooth fit with plenty of stretch for exceptional comfort and shape-retention.”
They are just so versatile and so beautiful. Oh!!! I just love these pants!
So I’m pleased beyond measure that they are the number two seller.
#1 – Cargo Crop Chino
As much as my readers love Talbots, I am quite surprised that the Cargo Crop Chino is only the second Talbots item on my top 20 list. But boy, oh, boy! Did these pants sell???! In fact, the Cargo Crop Chino is the number one best seller at Dressed for my Day this year.
Of course, once again I think I did style the Cargo Crop Chino several times and I probably showed them in a video or two, as well. They are surprisingly still available, too. They come in a few other fun colors also.
Well, that’s a wrap! It was quite educational for me to look through these analytics. Thanks for indulging me as I do these reviews. My goal is to use what I learn to create great content for 2022.
Speaking of 2022, I hope you have a lovely New Year’s Eve. Be safe if you get out and about. We’ll lay low. Hopefully we’ll be watching Georgia whoop up on Michigan. We shall see.

Blessed for My Day
I always love breaking in a new calendar. At the same time, new things can be a little scary. But as we approach this new year – not knowing what it will hold – let’s determine to do so with grateful hearts. Each day will be an opportunity to thank God for His provision and to praise Him for His faithfulness.
We can trust this His love will carry us through the hills and the valleys. We know that He will be merciful to us every day, extending fresh grace each morning. And we know without a doubt that He will be faithful to keep His promises without fail. Praise the Lord. Great is His faithfulness.
Oh sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. ~ Psalm 98:1
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ~ Lamentations 3:22-23
