The only kind I like

Acne S/S ’10 Sensational pants + obligatory marble

The feeling you get when you finally find something that you’ve been looking for a long time is one of my favorites. An even better feeling is one you get when that thing finds you.

And by finds you I mean is given to you by a dear friend who thought of you when they didn’t fit her and put them in the mail because she knew you would love them. I love you, D. Truly.

These are another future fall MVP (better visual here). They’re basically the trouser version of my favorite jeans; low slung, drop crotch with tapered legs. Time has only increased my love for this particular cut, so I’m glad to have another, slightly dressier option. These will be replacing the vintage, deadstock harem pants that I once wore to death but are now largely ignored.

Of note, this is the third time I’ve lucked out with getting a way past-season want from Acne (first, second). This is clearly some sort of magic power, right?

 

 

Project 333 | Fall Planning

MVPs

LNA Atlas sweater | Helmut Lang Smoking Wool Tux blazer | Madewell Serge oxfords | Jenni Kayne brogues

My head is well-buried into next “season” and am predicting that the above will be the MVPs of Project 333 – Fall edition. I probably shouldn’t be so focused on things I want to get for a time that isn’t here, but this is me we’re talking about. Old dog, new tricks, yadda yadda yadda. On the upswing I have half of these items already (sort of…although I still want the original for some reason), so there’s that. Progress?

I also added a succulent because that seems to be a thing that bloggers do now (#RELEVANCE). The spiral represents my shopping binge and purging cycles.

Langley drape tank | Langley muscle tank

Why two? Because I’m pretty sure my favorite brand has perfected a tank top for each of my main dressing modes: girlie with a side of tomboy and tomboy with a side of girlie. They’re diametrically opposed. Just go with it.

Consider the above exhibit A and exhibit B,  planned purchases of the month season. These will be rotated into the current collection and worn way too much.

Aside from being made locally, these are great since they don’t have to be hand washed. I’m not a huge fan of scrubbing off whatever sticky/colorful/unidentified substance(s) the boy has left on my shirts. I shudder to think of what substance(s) the boy has left on my shirts.

If you plan on getting one or both, just a heads up that they are cream. Very cream. Not white. Cream.
