I can't remember who it was, but someone asked me on a previous thread what I've been up to style wise.
After taking a hiatus off the forum. I did not shop from mid October to the beginning of January.
Unfortunately, due a myriad of factors, my weight is up a significant amount, ~15 lbs. Which has reduced a huge amount of my wardrobe that I can wear, probably over 1/2. I'm trying to rectify that, but it's very difficult right now as my Dad is staying with me for an extended period for cataract surgery. This has also basically eliminated my social life for the time being. I probably get about one day a week I can wear real clothes, or at least worthwhile to make an effort.
I've purged all my florals, except I found one renegade shirt stashed that will soon go. I got rid of at least 2/3 of my ballet flats, which I haven't worn in quite a while. A good chunk of my jeans went.
Probably next to go are my pastel skinny jeans. Also possibly some of the patterned ones.
I haven't been wearing my leather moto jackets, not quite sure what to make of that now. Nor my statement jewelry. Sporty lux, I was doing a while ago, but now I'm eh.
I'm over my obsession with Isabel Marant, her prices have increased even more, she's already rehashing her own stuff or doing ridiculous things like making a version of the Adidas Stan Smith sneaker for $500. Also I have noticed a lot of her stuff either on sale at the end of the season or on sample sale sites. Her stuff used to sell out at full price. I'm debating selling my wedge sneakers from her, I have black and gold.
I'm not so sure about the crazy patterns at Kenzo and MSGM.
What I have been wearing is lots and lots of denim and hats. On the last day of Shoptember Seattle Inge Fest was a pair of raw Chimala cropped jeans. I've been wearing them a great deal, especially with a cropped striped shirt from Portland and the knit puffer vest from Baby & Co here in Seattle.
Early January when I realized I couldn't stuff myself into my old skinnies, I got a clearance pair of dark wash, high waisted skinnies from Express, and a blackish tan acid wash high waisted from H&M. They were in constant rotation. Especially with my taupe Celine high top sneakers. I love the sneakers. Recently I got a pair of true black high waisted skinnies from Aritizia. Haven't quite got them going.
And the dresses, the bleach frayed chambray Sea, drawstring waist chambray from H&M. The gamble dress from Alexa Chung for AG Jeans. Plus the a-line button front denim mini from the same line. I predict I will wear all a lot. My Rachel Comey culottes from last summer will get worn when it warms up some more.
I do want a big denim jacket, but not the tradition styling. Considering this:
As far as shoes, the only ones that really speak to me right now are the Loeffler Randall mules, collected below.
I've also noticed that less likely to spend crazy amounts of money on fashion.
That's all I can really think of for now, but if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them.
