    Unicorns: apparel/accessory items that set the high bar for:
    cost per wear
    quality
    longevity
    multi purpose
    multi-person (heights, shapes, ages, style)

      Just a thought …. but I see the best seller posts on here as unicorn like. They always skew towards super stylish basics in very neutral colors.

    I might be alone here but I’m glad the era of skinny jean hegemony is over. As ever, I’m on the lookout for straight leg jeans with at least a 32″ inseam (in other words, not just full-length but almost floor-length) and a medium-rise waist. Is this a weird thing to want? It might be because this jean doesn’t seem to exist. Any and all leads appreciated. Also, I feel like these fuller legged jeans look better with something in a slimmer cut on top — if I wear them with a blousy blouse I look sort of poofy all over. A post on these matters would be great.

      as you’ve described the jean i’m always looking for, i’ll give you a list of my usual suspects: citizens of humanity “charlotte”, madewell “perfect jean” in tall, Acne Studios “classic fit” (and yes, i know, but i never said i’d give you a cheap list! btw: order a million different sizes, lengths and styles from them… they have a free shipping free return policy and even though it’s not exactly climate sensitive, it rocks for jean try-on… just be aware your order will be, like, a thousand dollars and make you want to pass out… but you’re only going to keep one super over-priced pair… and that’s only if you get lucky!), AGOLDE “lana” (weirdly billed as “low rise” when they are decidedly NOT) and possibly AGOLDE “cherie” but i haven’t tried them on. if the egregious price of the jeans on this list makes you have vertigo, you can try them on, find your perfect suspects and usually find them on therealreal, ebay, mercari, etc etc etc. enjoy!

    I’ve been a fan since before Lucky (I still think the sticker tabs were the most brilliant mag invention ever!). This is a super specific request. Your body is totally different than mine (i’m pear-shaped, with really wide hips) and I find that many of your chino suggestions don’t look flattering on me because of the side seam pockets… they flare open because of my curves. Can you do a post on pants that have a traditional 5-pocket style front pocket? Thank you!

    Not exactly a topic, but a feature request: Would it be possible to enable sharing photos in these comments? It would be inspiring to see other ladies’ posts of good outfits, jewellery, coifs, etc., that work in real life. (E.g., if anyone figures out how to pair boots / booties with the new non-skinny jean cuts / fits, I would love to see their combos … (-: )

    Already made some requests, but here’s another and I promise the last one: loafers (I love the way ballet flats look with skinny jeans, BUT not how they look with straight leg jeans so I’m guessing a loafer or a boot would be the most flattering)

    I’d love to see trousers that are current and stylish without being too skinny or short (damn the 26” inseam which now seems to be standard!). These unicorns would also be wool, wool blend or at least a dense, high-quality synthetic that doesn’t look cheap and plasticky. Styling for full-length straight and bootcut pants with heels 85mm or lower would also be super-helpful.

    Things for which there are many competitors that all pale in comparison. When shopping online it is hard to determine if the original version is worth the price or wait or if it’s just branding.

    so many great ideas that I agree with here! For me it’s outfits – I see great single items, and I have many, but seeing things put together in different ways is always illuminating for me. I can get tangled up in proportion issues, and then add bag or jacket options and I’m in the weeds.

    I am late to this thread but…any interest in a post about skin care regarding cosmetic procedures like fillers, IPL, etc…? I feel like we all talk about skin care in terms of products but that it’s still kind of taboo to admit we’ve had some work done. I have no judgment towards any of it as I have had a few treatments here and there and wonder if anyone would be open to discussing the topic in a safe way without shaming. Thanks!

    Two things: 100% cotton knit pajama sets which are not covered in flower prints (so hard to find!)
    Black booties which go a smidge above the ankle which are very close-fitting.
    Unfortunately heel height shouldn’t really be above two inches.
    Thank you! Looking forward to these posts.

    COVID has found me in the middle of a separation/divorce, and I have no idea what to wear once I start dating again. Let’s just say it’s been MANY years since I’ve dated. I’d love suggestions for cool date-appropriate clothing that may be a bit more fitted/polished than what I usually wear (I usually gravitate towards looser, minimalist styles).

      I am sooooooooooo tired of only being able to find CROPPED EXERCISE TOPS or BRA EXERCISE TOPS. They don’t even make sense––particularly if you are laying down on a reformer or an exercise mat or anything where you top half makes contact with some kind of exercise apparatus. (I have a lot of energy on this 😉

      Yeah … I have been looking for summer-weight pantsuits that aren’t either horribly cheap looking or reeeeeally expensive. I don’t see much in the middle. (Plus I am picky about colors and fabrics too. This may not ever happen.) Oh and they should fit a full range of sizes too, if at all possible, but I’m still interested in hearing about it if they don’t. I guess I could just not close the jacket…

      Speaking of Hermes, how about some scarves you love that aren’t $450+?

            Also, white gauze shirts (any and all styles) that don’t cost a small fortune for our protracted hot weather season that’s staring to ramp up now.

    Black boots. Not knee high, but jean appropriate and without a high heel. Throws for winter comfort in case we’re back in lock-down or even if we’re not. Lamps that do not have shades. And, vegetarian that I am, I have become obsessed with suede shirts. Also, I’m always on the lookout for patterned flannel sheets that are not plaid (I believe this is a bit of blowback from living with someone who could only sleep on grey or white sheets).

    Second the request for office appropriate, with some rock and roll thrown in (like dresses with grown up hemlines with fun jackets). Any dark florals a big plus. THANK YOU!

    How to style boots/booties with jeans. I’ve resisted the trend of high waist jeans, but could use some guidance on how to style boots/booties with some of the newer jean trends- cropped raw edges, straight, and the old standby of the skinny.

      Can we expand that into how to style ANY shoe with jeans? Especially the wide leg flare leg jeans. They come so long and I do not want to wear sky high heels with them (ideally, a flat or just a minimal heel at best) so then they sit in my closet because I don’t know what shoes to wear in order to bring them to a tailor to hem them to an appropriate length.

    Hiya!
    This is redundant but I could really use some jean guidance.
    I’m just not sure what’s what in the jeans world anymore..
    Are we cropped or is that over.
    High waisted or is that over.
    Wide legged or straight..etc..
    When I lived in nyc I could just go for a walk and I would know. But I’m definitely feeling clueless in Virginia.
    Yes, I only wear what I think works for me but still. Nothing ages you faster than really dated jeans.
    Thanks Kim!

      Caroline I may change my comment name to Clueless in Virginia. I love jeans but agree that they can date you without tweaks.

      I wonder though, have jeans become a free-for-all? What I seem to see is chaos. Tomorrow if I see someone in acid wash, I won’t know if they’re being ironic. So, I can’t draw conclusions about them. (Well, depending on the rest of their outfit, that is …) I thought maybe we had finally broken loose from there being a one true denim fashion? Perhaps I imagined it. I mean, I know there is a trend of what’s being *sold,* but do people still go by that?

        The jeans thing has me stumped for sure. I am a teen parent and work around teens / young adults in NYC and what they are wearing no one in Gen X is wearing (baggy high waisted light colored mom with potential rips in the knees) whereas 10 years ago teens and adults all wore skinny jeans. I have reverted back to my wide leg and boyfriend styles as a compromise. I am still looking for that perfect mid rise dark wash straight leg jean for fall. No such luck yet.

          Well, I don’t know where to find those, but I bet somebody here will. I am a mid-rise fan too. The high rise has been so prevalent I have even thought of getting some and lowering the waist, but luckily I realized I have not the skills to even think about that. … … … I will say, the Mom Jeans Resurgence has been a big surprise. Also that they actually call them that. At least they look comfortable?

    Perhaps you could talk a bit about how you think about clothing colors from season to season. How do you balance colors that might look best on you (ala “Color Me Beautiful” for a blast from the past) vs. colors that are featured in current fashion trends?

    Two good things to share (and I might share again tomorrow since idk if ppl will see this … ): first, I tried the Cerave Ultra-light moisturizing lotion with spf 30 and so far, it is not annoying. I don’t know how it would be if one did yard-work at noon, but for incidental bits of sun, I like it. I think one of youses here suggested it, so thank you!! I am fussy about wearing heavy lotions. … … … Second, this is perhaps the most awesomest thing I have ever seen on telly: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/these-tight-knit-retirees-are-helping-breast-cancer-survivors-feel-like-boobless-wonders It is sort of like that golden record, playing out in space, it’s that great.

    So sorry, I forgot: since we are heading into a situation with probably more mask wearing, I’d love some suggestions for earrings likely to stay put. I lost some earrings early on, pulling masks up and down.

    Thanks for the offer! GOACA is a favorite for me because you give us clothing that is fresh, and outside the standard mall store catalog. (1) I would love to see some options for pants with some sort of finished waistline, ratherthan gathered elastic. The elastic pants often have a very unflattering fit, at least for me. Plus, I feel like an oversized, overaged toddler wearing pull ups. (2 ) I don’t know if this is possible, but I would so love to find a chic and warm black wool coat. Maybe $500? Is that possible? (3) fall/winter blazers and jackets, maybe in wool, definitely with some style. Thank you.

    Awesome thread as always – Re: the requests for return-to-work posts, might it be possible to feature actual practitioners (attorneys, physicians, teachers, etc.) with great style (perhaps drawing from readers/posters here) – ??

    This is niche, perhaps, but self tanner for feet? I ‘ve been wearing sneakers for 16 months. I have an amazing sock tan line around my ankles and I am normally proud of it. This tan line represents all the walks that have kept me going. However, I ‘m going to a wedding in September and that sock tan line is going to look dorky with sandals/heels/cute shoes.

      Put on a layer of lotion and let it soak in. Then put on a layer of self-tanner, avoiding the soles, edges, Achilles’ tendon, and ankle bones—so mostly just your instep/top of your foot. Repeat every night/every other night for a week or so. If you are still walking in your sneakers on the regular you might consider some sunscreen at the tan line and a bit north.

    I am 62 y/o and 5’1″. So many dresses are SO LONG (even when you post about dresses with grown up hemlines), they lose proportion if shortened, and petites are cut all wrong. Would love some fun dresses to wear out and about!
