BOXES of new arrivals for slowre 🙂
Spring cleaning is REAL ya’ll. I’ve received so many things on consignment for slowre lately. Actually, since I started it about a year ago (March 18 was my first order!), I’ve taken in more than 300 items on consignment! WHOA. I’m so grateful for that, and always so excited I get to do what I love every day. Thank you to those of you who’ve bought and sold with slowre this past year!
I’ve been adding new arrivals only on Wednesdays, but I’m going to switch it up to twice a week: Tuesday and Friday. I would seriously urge you to sign up for the newsletter to get a notification when new items are added so you don’t miss out on anything. I have some great Black Crane, Me & Arrow, and Elizabeth Suzann pieces going up in the next week…
And on March 25-26 I’m popping up at the Boho Market at the Dallas Farmer’s market again (I did it last October as well), so if you’re local, please come and see me!! It was so much fun last time; I get sort of giddy talking to people in person about slowre, and the independent designers I love with people who are interested. Is that creepy?
Ah, Anthropologie. I really don’t shop there anymore, but I do breeze through the store every once in awhile, just to see what there is, but I’m never really tempted to buy anything. Many years ago, you may remember, I asked what ONE store you would shop in if you had to choose, and guess what mine was? Yep, Anthropologie. So funny how things change! Now, I walk in and might find something interesting, turn it around to look at the other side, and immediately put it back; too much lace or embellishment or just weird (not in a good way) looks going on in there. Anyway, it appears I’m not the only one who doesn’t shop at Anthropologie anymore…
I’m slowly watching season 3 of Schitt’s Creek and started on Patriot also, which is SO GOOD; dark and subtly funny.
I went back to Eileen Fisher to try on the silk system pants in petite large and ended up leaving with the size medium pants AND the duster/jacket in small (featured both in last Friday’s post). But I think I’m taking both back…The pants fit really well in the medium, but I like the length better when I roll the waistband one time, but that’s just a temporary fix. I could get them hemmed, but I’m not sure I love them THAT much.
And the jacket. I love the jacket, it’s so interesting, and dramatic, and looks great with the silk pants, my Nili Lotan pants, black jeans, my Elizabeth Suzann Cecilia pants, all pants, but I don’t love it with my James Perse dresses or midi skirt; I think the length of the jacket is more appealing with ankle length pants than with midi length skirts/dresses. Which makes it less versatile than I’d like. But man, I love it.
I wonder though, if I’d love the Emma kimono by Elizabeth Suzann more? It would be shorter on me, lighter weight, and would work with skirts and dresses better than the longer jacket. Who has the emma kimono, and what do you think of it? I’d get it in linen.
I try so hard to only add things that I can wear with pretty much EVERYTHING in my wardrobe, but perhaps that’s too much to ask? And do I really need EVERYTHING to work so hard??
Have a great weekend!!!
