I am not only really hard on myself when things don’t work out exactly as I’d hoped, I also make things WAY harder for myself than they really are. Or should be. I could win a prize, I swear.
But I did make things a little easier on myself today by scheduling new arrivals ahead of time at slowre (why the f didn’t I do that before??), so I’m heading in the right direction. Now, I’m going to make them harder by doing a second round of new arrivals on Saturday LOL. No, it’ll be fine. Good, even. I hope that some people who miss out the things that go fast during the week can catch a break on Saturdays. I know I can’t please everyone all the time, but if I can be more accommodating, I certainly will try.
Speaking of slowre, I had two True & Co basic scoop bras come through recently (the black one is still available) and of course I tried them on and ended up buying one for myself. I had also been looking for a skin-colored bra I could wear under my white tees because I had to finally THROW AWAY (literally, it was barely hanging on by a thread) my most favorite skin colored bra I’ve had for ten years. So, I am wearing the True & Co scoop bra in “dulce,” size xs under this shirt. Can you see it? I didn’t think the XS would fit, but it does (I’m generally a 34b) and it’s comfortable. I will say it’s hotter than my usual bralettes and it comes up a bitter higher than I like generally, but it was secondhand, and it serves my needs well. Liz from Elizabeth Suzann mentioned these bras as her favorites once in stories…if that matters…haha.
And these Beek sandals are so wonderful! I don’t wear them much anymore; I tend to prefer more support and a platform lately, but I could never get rid of them. They’ve held up really well the last couple of years, and are perfect when I want something a little more “sleek” LOL. FYI, these sandals DO have arch support, which makes them wonderful to walk in, I just always default to my Birkenstocks…
Ha! I just snapped up the black scoop bra. Been thinking about grabbing it for a while because I like my other True&Co scoop bra (in that dulce color) but figured if you mentioned it here I’d better make it final.
They really are high coverage but they’re good winter bras for that reason. I have their new skinny strap bralette too and really like it for when you don’t want that much coverage. I like that they are pullovers, have removable pads, and are super smooth. I can’t stand the bralettes with seams straight up the front. Ugh.

oh! good point ! it would make a wonderful winter bra!!!
i might try the skinny strap one too, i do love how smooth everything is, and how comfortable…
thanks for your order 🙂
I’m so glad you schedule the arrivals for earlier on Wednesdays! It works better for my schedule, selfishly enough 🙂
Those pants are amazing! Too bad they’re sold out. I had some Beek sandals and I liked them but the style I got wasn’t as multifunctional as I thought they’d be… oh well. Maybe I’ll take the plunge on a different style, I do love some good arch support!
Grechen Reiter says
i really like the style at shopbop with the ankle strap. so cute… (the oriole) – but I think i’ve noticed as i wore them today that the leather has stretched so that my feet sort of flop around in them? if that makes sense? so they feel sometimes like i’m working too hard to keep them on my foot.
i keep meaning to email namu-shop and see if they’ll get more of these pants in. they’re so good. and i really don’t find them too hot for summer at all.
Those sandals are gorgeous! I don’t even like sandals and my eyes were immediately fixated on those.
