I’m enjoying reading through all the instalments of the In Her Shoes series on The Cut website. It’s “a column about what real women wear when they need to get things done.” Here are 3 examples:
What a Chicago-based art advocate wears to work. I love what she said when asked about her style evolution:
“I feel like I wear everything differently — I’m so much more generous with myself now than I was when I was first getting started. I feel equal parts more confident, resilient, and humbled. I know what I bring to the table in the same way that I know exactly how I want to improve. I’m aware that I can be both tender and motivated and that those things don’t need to be in opposition. It’s made styling myself feel so much more spacious and freeing. That said, I want people to feel like I’m their best friend — someone funny that you want to get a drink with and dish.”

kkards recently came across these two articles about how good Stitch Fix is or is not, and where it goes from here. She adds: “I’m interested because I’ve always wondered how far this ‘algorithm’ thing could go… especially now that Amazon seems to be getting into the game, and the rental business seems to be expanding. Based on both of these articles, I’m left wondering if there is a long-term future here. But then again, I’m not the target customer.”
Vildy liked this video review of 4 subscription services, including Stitch Fix, that goes into whether they “got” the reviewer or not based on how she was allowed to express her preferences.
