3×1 The Principle high-rise cropped jeans (made in the US) | size down one size
James Perse brushed jersey turtleneck (made in the US)
Inhabit wool cardigan (made in China) | a few years old
Robert Clergerie Nalo wedges (made in France)
Variation on a theme…What I wore yesterday. Same formula as the day before: jeans + long sleeve top + cozy cardigan.
This Inhabit cardigan is several years old, and it shows. I do still love it, and look forward to wearing it whenever it cools off, but its best years are definitely behind it. I go back and forth between getting rid of it and not; for now, it’s staying, but it needs serious de-pilling.
Speaking of that, I received a sweater stone with my Elizabeth Suzann wool harper sweater and I used it quickly on the Emerson Fry sweater I sold recently, and found it sort of weird. It works, but seems to roughen up the wool more than it should? I prefer my Lily Brush for all kinds of sweater care, it seems less harsh. Do you use a sweater stone? or a comb? How do you find your sweaters hold up over time with their use?

Yesterday I had a rare shopping day (I don’t do a lot of offline shopping!) with a friend. Our mission was to check out the new downtown outpost of 4510, an amazing, super high-end department store we enjoy browsing but not buying, and then go to Tenoversix to check out the sale since I still had store credit after returning my Robert Clergerie bag with the hardware problem.
At Tenoversix I ended up with the Robert Clergerie Alice slide (in the same color as the bag I returned – SO BEAUTIFUL), which were on sale, and two candles by Boy Smells, the petal and gardener scents, and they are AMAZING. I DO NOT spend money on candles, typically I burn the Mrs. Meyer’s kitchen candles (geranium scent) I pick up at Target, but I’m always drawn in by expensive, beautiful candles. Maybe I’m convinced to splurge every once in awhile?
Speaking of splurging, 4510 has a serious fragrance section – it’s almost half an entire floor – and we spent some serious time there. They have a nice selection of Le Labo, which is interesting, because we now have a Le Labo store, just a few doors down from 4510. Of course, I love the Santal 33, but I sprayed the Rose 31 on my wrist to try it out. At first, I did NOT like how it smelled on, but over the next few hours, I could NOT STOP smelling myself. And it’s still there. It’s such a beautiful, subtle, but THERE rose/floral smell. I may have to get this one. Eventually.
Happy Wednesday!! Don’t forget about your Wardrobe Audit if you haven’t submitted it yet. I’m extending through this weekend, and will close it on 12/12, so please be sure to get your answers in by then.
