A Lesser Temperature

I would love to wear my wardrobe favorites right now. Lower the temp about fifteen degrees and this is exactly what I’d be wearing right now. I’m very impatient for summer to be over. I’ve already started wearing my boots, and sneakers. All my usual sandals are already in hiding at the back of my closet – I’m in denial that the temperature is this high.

My So Called Life

Oh no… I think I’m in trouble! After watching episode six of popular 90s show My So-Called Life I suddenly have a brand new craving for a new Isabel Marant shirt… one WAY out of my price range!

The reason I want it so badly is because in the 90s TV show one of the characters is wearing a shirt that oddly resembles the Isabel Marant shirt. And since she looks so cool and laid back with it I suddenly want the IM shirt. Except I’m sure that back in the 90s the shirt the character is wearing probably cost pennies compared to the IM shirt!

Here are some screen caps:

Inspiration comes from all sorts of places. Now I’m not saying anything about whether or not Isabel Marant ever saw this original shirt (seems unlikely as this is an American 90s TV show) but it is definitely a big coincidence! Ah.. can’t believe I’m suddenly lemming for a shirt I thought I could very easily SKIP this season. ^_^;


I’m currently in the process of getting rid of a lot of clothing and working on a “curated wardrobe.” I’m only in the mental stages, as I want to figure just what aesthetic I’m hoping to achieve when I get rid of all the extraneous clothes from my closet.

Here’s what I’m hoping to have by Fall:

From left: Etoile Isabel Marant Tin Cropped Trousers, 3.1 Phillip Lim Silk Muscle Tee, Miu Miu Bow-detailed silk-crepe blouse, Helmut Lang Wool-blend Blazer

These are three of five of my wardrobe colors. I wear gray, blush, nude/cream/tan, royal blue/navy, and black! If I aspire to purchase these and only these items for Fall it might be possible to get them all (though the Marant trousers are likely sold out in my size already). As much as I love looking at prints and people experimenting with texture, etc. I do not feel that I can look polished with all that. I need to keep it minimal and simple for my own personal style.
