STATE The Label Potter’s coat | pre-loved at slowre
These aren’t technically “outfits,” although they could be…I was sans bebe yesterday for a little while so I played dress-up upstairs in my office for as long as possible LOL. Please forgive the mess, I took these to share with a friend, not intending to post them here. But you are friends too, no? And I wanted to share. And life is MESSY right now!
It’s been a while since I “modeled” items for slowre, and that’s mostly because not much fits me, but jackets do!! And I loved both of these the moment I got them, in fact I keep going back and forth on whether to purchase one or both for myself. The STATE coat is heavier, very much like Elizabeth Suzann’s cotton canvas, but softer and slightly drapier. It would be a good layer over a sweater for somewhere with a relatively mild winter.
The Beaton linen dress/jacket is lighter weight and dual-purpose, although I prefer it open, as a duster/jacket. I love it as part of an all-white (or mostly white) outfit, although I wouldn’t normally put something like that together, it was an accident. But I like it!
My dad bought me the jeans while he was here so I would have one pair of jeans that fit me and I LOVE THEM. They’re high rise, but not 100% cotton, so they’re very comfortable. I just can’t handle 100% cotton right now; I need some stretch for my fluffy postpartum body.
Finally, I’ve been wanting a linen Ichi dress in pink gingham for months (the one I wanted a few months ago sold out at Rennes quickly!) so when I saw this one pop up at Oroboro I pounced. It is VERY oversized on me, and I’ll be honest and say that it’s too overwhelming on my petite frame (you know I love oversized, but there might be a limit?). That said, I love it. I really love it. I wish it was slightly less wide, and maybe a little shorter, but I love the fabric, and the linen. Even so, I’d probably return it if I could, but it was final sale since I purchased it at a discount, so I can’t. I was going to get it up to sell at slowre, but then I was thinking…fuck it. Why don’t I just wear it? I can try and wear it and then sell it if I don’t, but why not at least try??
That’s it for now, Hawk is reaching his happy-by-himself limit, so time to go.
What have you bought lately? What’s on your list for fall??
