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

Gracey Wears: Blue and Green

For a long time, blue and green was one of those color combinations I was a bit iffy on.  Why?  Because, when I was younger, I read a book in which a girl sat her blue-wearing rival on a green couch because she knew that the green paired with the blue would look “ghastly.”  I was fairly impressionable as a child, so, for years, I thought that blue and green didn’t pair well.  As it turns out, that’s totally not a thing:

Although, for that era, it might have totally *been* a thing.  Just as certain colors gain and lose popularity as time goes by, I’m sure certain color combinations do too.  Or, maybe it has to do with the shades of blue and green being paired.  I’m hard-pressed to imagine any color blue doesn’t go with, but, then again, I am admittedly biased towards blue. read more

Gracey Wears: Flares

Although I wear flares fairly often

… I’m actually a bit on the fence about them.

Or at least about their proposed dominance in my wardrobe.  According to the fashion world, flared jeans are the silhouette for this fall.  But, I’m not sure they suit me or my lifestyle enough to replace my skinny jeans.

One, I’m not always going to want to dress like an extra on That 70s Show:

I mean, sometimes, sure, obviously.  But, not always.  And flares do definitely lend themselves to the 70s trend so it’s hard to resist the urge. read more
