Hey, sharing all my outfits from last week was pretty fun! Here’s what I wore to work this week…Continue reading “The week in tired mirror selfies, pt. 2”
If you don’t know about Sezane you should probably skip this post, because I think the cool French clothing company is out to steal my whole wallet. They’re unsuccessful, though, because $120 for a shirt is noooooope not happening on a graduate student budget.
….but that doesn’t mean I can’t look.
Looking at expensive clothes is a hobby of mine. It could be purely painful, but I actually like looking at the inspiration and then keeping a phone note of items I want to find on sale or thrift. In the spirit of that, here are some Sezane pieces I have been coveting, along with cheaper “dupes” of those items.Continue reading “Style on a budget: Sezane lookalikes for cheaper”
Shopping the J. Crew Sale
Every December/July J. Crew does a 50% off sale on clearance items. This is the only time I buy anything from them, and has helped me to slowly build a professional teaching wardrobe. Here are some of my favorites this time around:
1- Sweater (I bought this in cabernet for $30 yesterday)
3- Cashmere sweater (I will probably save up for a couple months and make this my next big purchase…additionally, Steinmart has cashmere sweaters for $35 right now. Run, I say!)
4- Dress pants (I love that these come in fun colors, I might buy these in blue)
6- Necklace (J. Crew is my go-to for I-am-presenting-at-this-conference-and-I-need-a-power-necklace)
I call this look “what do you mean I have to get dressed to proctor this final & it’s snowing & I still have four papers to write.”
