Everyone was so helpful and supportive as I worked through getting myself a dress code and refining my wardrobe. I thought I'd share some updates, now that I've been wearing it a while.

Overall, I really enjoy it! It cuts my clothing-worry time by a lot, although I do have to keep on top of laundry. I've had one day where I resorted to backup non-grey jeans, and even though they were previously a favorite pair, I definitely won't be replacing them when they go.

Of the pieces I ordered to round out my top selection, one of them (the BP. tank) will be going back, but the Boden tops (see Finds & pics!) are staying.

The only other issue I've noticed so far is that, in keeping track of where I can get grey jeans...most grey jeans are skinnies. I like skinnies as much as the next person, but I do like some variety. I'll have to keep a sharp eye out for non-skinny options. My next skinny pair may be from Warp + Weft; I'd love to hear from anyone who has clothes from them and can give opinions!

One pair of my grey jeans has not made it into these pictures, somehow. It is a cropped, cuffed pair, about the same color as the Old Navy "Silver" pair. I've worn it three times since I started trying to remember to take pictures but it must have a built-in forgetfulness generator.


  1. Human Like Me top from Androgynous Fox. One of my non-striped queer shirts. Every time I look at this pic I think that I should've thrown on my green striped cardigan for it; I really miss the stripes. Old Navy "Rockstar" jeans in "Stone Lake".
  2. Gap striped tee, possibly men's? that I've had for a few years. The green & blue combo always made it hard to wear, but I love it with the grey. The jeans are also Old Navy skinnies in "Silver". The shoes are Atheist Shoes "Das Sneaker" in a Kickstarter exclusive shade of pink.
  3. Boden top, Old Navy skinnies. I love the top although it emphasizes the width across the bust a little too much, since the wider stripes continue onto my arms at just the wrong point. I kept it anyway!
  4. Boden top, men's 541 Levis in "Gated Grey". These were the jeans I found buried in my drawers and thought I must hate, because why would I bury them? I do not hate them. I love them. I think they must just have gotten lost in my mess. "Athletic" fit jeans tend to work better on people with small waists/large hips & thighs than a lot of other fits, since they are assuming big glutes & quads. I find them really comfy, though they still gap a little in the back sometimes.
  5. Black Liverpool moto-style jacket (Finds), Papermoon "Egan" tank, Levis. The moto & tank were from my most recent Stitch Fix box; I went and made the casual clothing options on that really tight to see what would happen, and I think getting two items to keep right afterwards is pretty good!
  6. Same, but with the jacket off.
