So, as a consequence of a few recent stories in The Cut (posted in Inge's link love a couple of weeks ago), I have been doing a deep dive into all things Tibi/Amy Smilovic. If I can try to briefly summarize the amazingly huge amount of content she has produced, Amy has rethought the brand she started a long time ago and is now both producing and preaching a distinct point of view. A very analytical point of view, which of course draws me like a moth to the flame. Anyway, as delighted as I would be to go into a long discussion about that, I will simply say that although I don't agree with everything she says, I do appreciate a strong point of view and have been experimenting with some of her principles. If any of you happen to also are aware of all this and want to discuss, I am here for it.

On to the selfies:
1. I recently thrifted this COS bright pink dress and had to wear it immediately. Problem: It is a bit big on me. Second problem: too much going on here, but for most of the time the bag was not on me.
2. I have been playing with pearls lately (there is an Angie on my shoulder). I have also been trying to wear longer pants, even though it is still summer here.
3. These crazy shoes are possibly the oldest in my closet. They were not super comfortable and I will either get rid of them or keep them forever and only wear them once a year. Also, don't look at my hair!
4. This is a weird example of something Tibi inspired. Meaning these sort of ugly studded shoes I recently bought with consignment credit based on Amy's positive view of ugly shoes. I am actually enjoying them.
5. Trying to pretend it is a new season. Vintage Dries van Noten blouse, I have the matching skirt .
6. More pearls, more pretend Fall.
7. I really enjoyed this one pearls wise with the vintage Agnes B. top that I rarely break out.

Anyway, feel free to skip everything I just wrote and say something completely unrelated . And, as always, thank you for looking.
