Striped


Hello, new favorite silk shirt under $100. It's a lovely thicker silk with some heft, to hold up to the wear I'll be putting into it. (p.s. size up for a more relaxed fit like I did.)


I'm also fully embracing my inner nerd with these glasses, which I had ordered months and months ago, but I made the mistake of getting my prescription filled online and via a UK site (as the prices were slightly cheaper). That was a terrible mistake. Long story short, I had to get them re-fitted with new lenses to match where the center of my pupils actually fell on the lens. I put it off for the longest time because I knew I would eat the cost I originally paid for the lenses (over $350) and have to pay for new lenses (my local place cut me a 'deal' and they were still $400 – I have a pretty awful prescription so I have to get the thinnest ones available). Two lessons I learned from this: never get prescription lenses online; and prescription lenses are not a place in life to try and save money on!

  7. In the future, you can try getting your lenses done at Costco. I have bad eye sight (-6.75) and I regularly take my frames that I've purchased elsewhere to them. The super thin lenses with all the coatings and fixin's were around $99 and tax.

    1. Oh yeah that was my first thought, but I took these frames to them and Costco refused to do them because of their shape. Bummer for me!

  9. Silk shirts and inner nerd makes the perfect balance! So fancy! I love the red lipstick too. Is this still your beloved Tom Ford?
