Here’s another item I had in my 2018 Wardrobe Plan: a belted sweater. Honestly, I expected this “wish” to pass me by again, but when this sweater came through for slowre I bought it for myself and I’m really pleased with it. I’ve never had camel wool before, and honestly it’s nice and warm and softer than I would have thought. I’m so glad I was able to check an item off my list with something secondhand 🙂 I do still have some of the shipment of the “vintage” Mongolian cashmere I got in available – here’s another camel wool cardigan which is really wonderful (although it is thicker and maybe a little more “abrasive” than mine. Which I think can be taken care of with more washing and wearing. I thought this one was a little itchy when I first put it on, but after a wash and air dry, it seems to have softened up a lot).
Speaking of my wardrobe plan, I’m crossing the 6397 shorty jeans in grey off my list in favor of a straighter mid-rise pair, probably this pair by Goldsign, if I decide to get another pair of jeans at all. I am going to be selling my other shorty jeans next week and am just not liking that style on me much anymore, plus they’re just too big all around on me, so no need to add a new pair.
I’m getting Grechen’s Codes back up and running now, and my goal is to post one sale item, or item with a coupon code per day, with a focus (like here) on independent designers, boutiques, and sustainable design. And in case you don’t get the slowre newsletter, clearance is on now, and this is the last month these items will be in stock, so if you’ve been interested in anything, now’s the time!
I finished The Crown, and I was sorry for it to end. I also quickly watched The End of the F***ing World and thought it was also very good. Well done, and “sweet” sort of, while also very distressing. Finally, I’m catching up on Divorce (on HBO), which I watch mostly because I’m obsessed with SJP, but also now because Thomas Hayden Church is SO FUNNY, in a perfectly serious way. I highly recommend it.
I’m reading Pachinko, which someone recommended here once, and I’m really enjoying it. Sadly, I’m going to be reading much less since we moved; our local library here doesn’t loan kindle books! Which is stunning, really, but what can I do? I looked into getting a City of Dallas library card but that costs as much as just buying every book I want this year…sigh. I’m going to have to pace myself I guess.
I’d really love to not work so much this weekend, as I did last weekend, but I don’t think I’ll be able to take very much time off; I got a shipment of Emerson Fry sweaters in yesterday to get up on Slowre and some other great pieces coming in today (ES anyone??)!! We’re having a nice dinner with friends Saturday night and then Super Bowl on Sunday, so I will be eating all the food.
How was your week? What do you have planned this weekend?
