This is what I wore to work today. I sent back the PACT cardigan yesterday and received this Marni cashmere cardigan from the RR on the same day. It came with a tiny hole on the arm but with a tiny bit of tear mender glue and a brown marker to cover up the whiteness of the glue, you wouldn’t know there was a hole unless you were looking for it. The design is simple, modern and a little bit boyish. I felt like myself in this and it sort of disappeared from my mind throughout the day, which is what clothes should do.
Yesterday night, I finally decluttered a giant pile of random papers in my closet. I decided I needed a more organized way to keep notes and discovered disc bound notebook systems. I ordered a gray leather notebook by TUL (Office Depot) to start. And if I like it I’m going to consider getting the hole puncher to fully commit to a disc bound system. The customizability is really cool. I wish I had this back when I was in school.
And as a side note: is anyone else annoyed by Eileen Fishers website? It’s so poorly run/designed. I’m shocked that they still use extremely tall /thin models primarily. To make shopping for our bodies even harder, they offer no detailed sizing info for each garment despite offering an expanded size range. With limited inventory and the relative success of the company, I am shocked they have not caught up with the the times in this regard. Especially since they seem to be so thoughtful about so many other things (the environment and ethical manufacturing). I emailed a letter to EF about these issues, but there’s no response so far. Not holding my breath there, but it’d be interesting to see what comes of it.
Speaking of Eileen Fisher, I decided to change into my new EF tencel terry dress worn under my old military long jacket after work to go to the Men I Trust concert. I like to dress a little more “alternative” to concerts and it helps to wear big pockets so there’s no need for a bag that can restrict movement while dancing or moving through crowds.
This outfit probably shows a little more of my personality than the clothes I wear during the typical work week. It’s a bit more hardcore but ultimately still quiet and serious. I’ve decided, I will never be that whimsical, cute-sy girl. It’s just not me. There’s so many well done outfit blogs out there with fun-quirky-colorful styles, but I can’t relate and find myself completely disinterested in them. Where are all the plain Janes out there?!, lol.
