Sally - you’ve hit on something valuable with your wildcard colour comment . We can have wildcard pieces , and maybe sometimes the colour is what makes them that . I can see how this colour could be that one styling tool that shakes up a relatively sedate closet ( mine ) .

bj - let’s just say I bought these “jeans “ strictly for their bottom half ( cropped raw hem flare ) . They are a pull- on style from Tribal . Now I have to kill you after sharing this detail

Barbara Diane - the company is called Clean Chaos and the are on IG ( no website ) .

Really good point about the wildcard item/colour! I’m thinking that if you make a place for it in your closet, rather than edit it at the end of a season, you’re less prone to repeat the ‘mistake’ when the impulse comes on you to buy ‘the thing’.

It seems like we hold on to wildcard dressy/holiday items, but tend to purge the colourful summer impulse buys or items that reflect a shadow style. I know my summer impulse is for colour and boho. (See exhibit A in finds below for 2023, and exhibit B for summer 2022.) Nothing in my closet (all in Finds) stands out like these two!

Dons Kevlar and googles “tribal jeans”

They’re a couple of years old , lol .

Late to this thread, but I like this look a lot and ordered this shirtdress to play with with. Should be here early next week Thanks for sharing!

I really like how you styled it and I like that color on you. How thoughtful of you to wear your Olukais in honor of your friend. Your jewelry is beautiful, thank you for sharing the info.
