I was really inspired to wear more of my Elizabeth Suzann pieces this week after receiving the clyde jumpsuit. I don’t know why I don’t wear my Clyde pants more often; they’re a great weight for cooler weather, and look great with fitted tops. And the cecilia pants are a challenge sometimes, to be honest, because I don’t normally reach for slim black pants on a regular basis. And I wish they fit a little differently and were a teeny bit shorter. I may have the knees taken in a little because that bunching back there sort of drives me crazy (Laurie, did you do that too? Who did that?). But both pants are crazy comfortable, and I always appreciate how great they are whenever I wear them.
And I am really trying to wear my leather jacket. I love it, but it’s really out of character for me; I’d rather wear a sweater or cardigan.
Nada. But Everlane is sending me a pair of their cropped wide leg pants to review for you in advance of their 2/14 launch.
I watched Santa Clarita Diet. It was okay. I liked the husband much better than Drew Barrymore’s character though. Parts were funny, parts were too much. It was entertaining though, and a decent diversion. Haha…can you tell I was rather lukewarm about it? I’m not really into watching TV/movies lately. Mostly because I sit down, and fall asleep!!
Eleanor Snare tried to not buy clothes for a year; here’s how it went. I admire her resolve, and love that she used it as a push to develop her sewing skills, but what really struck me was her statement about how she found new ways of experiencing fashion – comparing shopping to visiting an art museum: you can view and appreciate the “art/fashion” but can’t bring it home with you.
Leah put together a great ethical capsule wardrobe recently. I take issue with the use of the word “capsule” here, because it’s just a smaller, more cohesive wardrobe, but I definitely understand the appeal of “capsules” and appreciate why she used it (the smaller wardrobe is meant to provide a stepping off point). But you know me…I’m anti-capsule 😉 Leah is a fabulous resource for ethical fashion brands that are accessible, and I also loved her posts about ethical fashion brands that are better than Forever21 and Old Navy.
Hope you have a marvelous weekend!
