This is just an outfit. And yes, I’m posing with my “snack” of rice cake and hummus because the only time I had to take a picture of WHAT I ACTUALLY WORE yesterday was in between getting home from a long afternoon getting my car serviced (ugh), the grocery store, and then getting Dagny out for an afternoon walk. I was so hungry.
Please let me clarify for the millionth time, in case you are new here: I am not a fashion blogger. I don’t know what I am exactly, but I’ve never been as concerned (obviously) with my photographs as I am with the words – the story behind the outfit, how I feel about the clothes I review, and my thoughts about the items I feature. I appreciate reality, and anyway, I don’t know how to do anything else. I’ve tried to stage photos, and have professional pictures taken, but I get bored with perceived “perfection” and move on. I started out as an outfit of the day blogger, and I think that’s where my heart really is.
In this outfit I wanted to make note of two things: If you haven’t tried or don’t have a pair of James Perse leggings and you appreciate opaque, comfortable, perfectly-fitting leggings, I urge you to try these. I’m wearing a size 2 here and I had them hemmed a year or so ago (these are several years old and still in excellent shape), which I sort of regret. Unless your sister’s dog rips a hole in them with his teeth (that happened), these leggings are pretty much indestructable.
I also cannot recommend these shoes highly enough. The color I’m wearing is on sale but Shopbop has three styles: denim, raffia and black embossed that are eligible for their coupon code. Yes, Robert Clergerie shoes are expensive, so I try to find them on DEEP sale (at least 50% off), but they are hands down the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn (assuming you get the right size, which is sometimes tricky), and my oldest pair is about a decade old. If you take care of them they will last you forever – or at least as long as you want them to. The Real Real has a nice selection of second hand Robert Clergerie, and we have a couple in SLOWRE.
Today I’m going to the Eileen Fisher store to see what’s new. Will report back tomorrow!!
