this makie outfit came in my size. i'm still obsessed with that navy plaid dress. maybe it will have to go on my shopping list instead of a toggle coat. trying to not be overly self-indulgent this season, but it's my favorite season to shop for.

i'm wearing the small. i think i'm going to return it because of the wrinkling. the jeans don't look as high-waisted as they feel. i'm a bit ambivalent about both pieces.

|Rachel Comey dinner pants in peony print|
the rachel comey silk dinner pants fit beautifully and are as comfortable as pajamas. i paired it with a T by Alexander Wang top. it's better to go with a really lightweight fabric, especially if you're tucking it in. i tried on a small, but would be more comfortable in a medium. the elastic waistband is forgiving, though.
although i love pretty much everything from rachel comey's fall collection, suno was the standout label for me. the fabric is just heavy enough to drape beautifully. the prints are so stunning, too. the dresses are $500-600, so not exactly peanuts. i'm leaning toward the blue and red print dress, which is so slouchy and easy to wear.
i also tried on the rachel comey ruse dress, which is surprisingly comfortable for such an elegant dress, and the gary graham wrap cardigan, which can be worn a million ways and is like wearing a duvet--but nicer, of course.

|sera, vee dress|
i'm trying to figure my way to a more grown-up wardrobe for teaching while still retaining a sense of me (comfort, comfort, comfort). i desperately need new shoes and a backpack. a blazer would be lovely, as would a pair or two of trousers. and pretty much everything in rachel comey's fall collection.
