Reader Request: Opaque White Shirts

circleskirt_outfit

I’ve had many, MANY requests flow in through Facebook, comments, and e-mails for help finding opaque white shirts. Some of you are hoping to find button-fronts, others tees, but everyone is frustrated by the dearth of opaque options out there. And I hate to say it – especially since I pride myself on being able to find virtually anything either in person or online – but I, too, struggle to find white shirts that are truly opaque. I’ll occasionally find a knit tee that works fine with just a nude bra, but button-fronts? Forget about it. The Foxcroft shirt shown above is among my most opaque, but even it has a bit of show-through in certain lights. read more

A roundup of vegan-friendly brands and styles

Rebekahasked:

What about a post of fun vegan clothes and accessories? It’s not all hemp and caftans, I swear.

Indeed! I am not vegan myself, but have been consistently impressed by the vegan-friendly offerings on the market in recent years. My understanding is that truly vegan clothing and accessories include absolutely no animal products whatsoever: No wool, silk, down, leather, fur, feathers, nothing. So that means man-made materials, cotton, linen, rayon, and other plant-based fibers are all fair game. (Other materials I’m missing? Do tell!) read more

Reader Request: Stylish Sleepwear

Reader Katie sent this request via e-mail:

Could you make a post about your sleepwear? For instance, I would love to know if you are just as fashion coordinated when you go to sleep as when you wake up in the morning? Or do you tend to wear t-shirts and boxers? Either way, I would be interested to know if this has a psychological effect on your fashion style. For example, do you wear t-shirts to bed because at the end of the day you are exhausted from being “matchy” all day long or do you wear pajama sets because they inspire you to be “matchy” because fashion doesn’t stop when the camera stops rolling and people are gone. read more
