Rag & Bone/JEAN wicked jeans | THESE ARE NOW 50% OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m wearing my “normal” denim size, and they’re a little big at the waist, but fit perfectly everywhere else
Elizabeth Suzann mules

I can’t believe these jeans went on sale so quickly…I guess no one else but me likes them LOL. I think I passed the price adjustment period, but I’m definitely going to ask for one. You never know until you ask…
I walked around the mall this week, not looking for anything in particular, just wasting time most of all, and I had something to return to Nordstrom. I was not really intrigued by anything, EXCEPT I loved this wool vest at Eileen Fisher. I tried it on over my Frazier & Wing dress in the store and thought it was a beautiful layer – perfect for wearing with that dress, actually. It was soft, nicely draped, and warm (for a vest). But man…the price…I understand it, sort of, but also think it could be $100 cheaper? Maybe?
And, ugh…why couldn’t I have recognized this a week ago when I could have used my 10% off, but I am now convinced that I need the Elizabeth Suzann Florence pants in silk crepe. You may remember I had them in size medium, short, and gave them to my sister because they were too tight on me in the hips and I found the waist a little tight. I really loved them though and knew they had potential if I could get the right size. I think I’m going to order the black, size large, short. I want the waist to be NOT TIGHT, and it’s okay if it’s a little loose and lower on the hips. I wonder if they’ll come faster than 6-8 weeks??
I loved this article by Cathy Horyn on Rachel Comey & “weirdo fashion”:
Her grasp of individual personalities is also stronger than ever, and that was the question she really addressed in this lovely show — how to dress for one’s own pleasure.
YES YES YES.
Incidentally, the “model” in the photograph used to be a sales associate at one of my favorite indie boutiques here in Dallas, Tenoversix. He worked with me a few times and was always a pleasure. I am just beyond thrilled with Rachel Comey’s inclusive attitude and gender-neutral pieces (she did start out as a menswear designer after all) both on the runway and in her collections.
She does do weirdo fashion better than most though, and it’s more accessible than, say Vetements, both in terms of price and wearability. I look forward to adding more Rachel Comey to my wardrobe as soon as possible, maybe starting with this top when it goes on sale? I love it.
Leah does it again…her piece on mom jeans as the new corsets is really good – I struggle with my high-waisted denim (ahem…Rachel Comey) too – they are so good standing up, but when I sit, not so good. They’re a 1/2 inch big in the waist even. The more I wear them, the better they get, but I would not want to wear them eating a meal, or on the plane. It makes me think about the difference between how things fit/look when you’re standing up/trying things on, as opposed to how they fit/look when you sit down. I mean, we have to do both, right?
Honestly, I don’t even know how people wear Kamm pants, they look really uncomfortable even standing up, sitting must be absolutely hell. Don’t even get me started on the camel toe. ugh.
Donating as much as I can, getting rid of things before packing…
Maybe I’ll go see IT this weekend. I loved the book…
What are your plans? Everyone safe? I’m thinking about my dad and step-mom in Orlando and my step-son in West Palm Beach. Hoping they stay okay!
