91 Thoughts on Should we have another week of requests?

    A non-fashion request from me. How about a post on stationery, particularly note cards? I love writing thank you notes and notes to go with gifts I give. I’d love some chic but affordable options. Some options out there are, like, $35 for a pack of 6 cards and envelopes and that’s just nuts.

    This is my second effort to post -hope this goes through!

    How about a GOACA “capsule” for each season? 10 (or 15 or whatever) pieces that can be combined – per you – to make 100 outfits 🙂 Would love it, so thank you in advance!

    I used to be hourglass but two kids have made me hourglass with a belly. No one makes clothes for me and fit and flare should work but don’t. Any suggestions on how to not feel like a potato?

    I’d love a post on packing light. The only time I’ve traveled without checking luggage was an overnight trip 25 years ago. I’ll be in Scotland and Dublin for 2+ weeks in late September and am determined to pack less than I ever have. (My husband laughs every time I say that.) I know about committing to one color palette, taking only two pairs of shoes and flying in leggings but I don’t wear tights around town unless I’m exercising, so why would I do so on a trip?

    I’m utterly bereft that summer is making its last lap so maybe you could help get me (us?) excited about the fall with posts on:
    1) Loafers (please, no mule, shooties or the like! just great, sturdy, stylish loafers)
    2) Fall jackets–something in between a one-layer light jacket, maybe with a little quilting or lining inside, and before we get into puffer-ville.
    3) Always happy to see a post on fall scarves!
    Enjoy the last gasp of Summer! xo

    I’d love a post on elegant clothing — gracious jackets with matching dresses, silk appropriate for work as a lawyer (I just adore the Zero + Maria Cornejo clothes you have introduced me to — wore one of her silk twill dresses the other day to work, but it is bright persimmon so can only be worn every so often), stuff that answers the question posed by “Younger” — what do women of a certain age wear? And I second everything else everyone else suggested!

    I have been looking and not finding shoes for fall that aren’t boots. I always feel silly wearing boots when it’s not snowing. Plus I live in Chicago so try to avoid wearing boots in the fall since I’ll wear them constantly during our very long winters. I’m looking for shoes that you can wear with socks and full length pants when it is too cold outside to expose your ankles but not yet winter. Thanks!

      I like this idea too but I noticed GOCA doesn’t do styling posts – more just items grouped together by category – blazers, black dresses, types of jewels, scarves, etc. etc. – I bet you have such a great quirky sense of styling – I would love to see how you put looks together from head to toe.

    Yes!
    1. Sleek, simple, well-made Oxford shoes (not clunky brogues, or point-toes) in black, brown, tan, and / or gold — like shoes seen on beautifully dressed women in London. Genuinely comfortable and walkable, meant to last forever, and above all, available at least up to size 11.

    2. Gorgeous caftans that don’t cost $800 and up (because: a) it seems ridiculous to pay that much for something that’s going to get wet and sandy; b) you *know* those Oaxacan weavers, Indian block-printers, and Moroccan silk-dyers are *not* getting paid such princely sums).

    3. This one’s a bit hard to articulate, but I would love your thoughts on how to deal with changing pant and denim silhouettes. It seems that about every seven years or so, there’s a dramatic shift in the dominant shape of jeans and trousers. I’m 47 now, and clearly remember the move from Dittos in elementary school, to straight-up-and-down Guess jeans (which I couldn’t wear because of a small waist) in junior high, to — if lucky enough to be super-skinny and have a boyfriend — faded 501s in high school (or, failing those, high-waisted / loose, peg-legged “mom jeans”). Then there was a shocking-feeling transition to low-rise bootcut / flare jeans after college, which led fairly smoothly to low-rise straight-legs for a few years; then in our 30’s, we all had an agonized time trying to decide whether we could handle the prevailing low-rise skinny-jean; then adjusting to that and feeling as if skinny Levi’s and mid-rise black skinny jeans were the answer to every question in the universe, along with low-rise boyfriend jeans for bloated days; then vintage and Redone Levi’s had a huge moment, which may still be happening, along with the culotte and Jenni Kayne pant; and now, I’m in middle age, with fluctuating weight, struggling to figure out how to pair existing tops and sweaters with newer high-waisted mom jeans, kick flares, etc. Wondering about trying to adapt by purchasing some new high-waisted skinnies, when I don’t even know if someone my age should wear skinny jeans … All of the parallel trouser shapes have been confounding as well — from wide-legged high-waisted, to low-rise fitted cigarette or cropped bootcut, to elastic-waist Celine-style easy pants, back to high-waisted trousers. The cuts and fits of slouchy tops and sweaters that worked with original skinny and BF jeans simply don’t work with high-waisted, wider cuts of pants, and I’m confused, and can’t figure out how to get dressed. Will any silhouette last? Are we too old to wear skinny jeans now? Is there any such thing as a classic, forever jean?

    Thank you! (-:

      Brogues ARE Oxfords, though. The formerr just has detailing on the toecap. You can check the following for traditional options, ordered from priciest to most affordable: Church’s, Carmina Shoemaker, and Russell & Bromley. Everlane also has a plain, modernized Oxford, too.

    I wish I could remember where I read this, but I don’t––it was a comment about a woman who was wearing “glittery butterfly clips” and the writer felt the woman was far too old to do so and by doing so the butterfly clip woman was aging herself. I’ve always been of the mind that when you get to be a certain age you should wear whatever you want and the rest of the fashion world can go [email protected]$k itself, but maybe I’m wrong. Is there a line in the sands of fashion that even GOCA should not cross? I don’t have a desire to wear glittery butterfly clips, but I did pull a vintage pajama top out of my closet the other day thinking I would wear it, then put it back when I thought maybe I was “too old” to wear a vintage pajama top. I don’t want to look foolish, but I do want to feel free to wear what I want. Perhaps I’m not looking for a “request” so much, but more of a “permission slip.”

    Others have mentioned glasses, and I am specifically interested in reading glasses – ones that are stylish, low magnification (this is my first foray and I only need 1x for reading), and under $50. I don’t need them often enough yet to shell out big money, but I’d like something better than the CVS cheapies I’m currently wearing.

      Amazon. Look up cat eye readers – or other shapes – there are so many at various cheapie prices ($10-15) – that I ordered about 8 – found some killer ones. Every time I wear them to work people are like ‘Are those Tom Ford?’ I’m like ‘Yes. Yes they are’ –

      TF by way of Amazon.

      Retroce is also great site for readers in the $50-65 zone (like the Warby Parker of readers)

      Nordstrom and Anthro have good readers in the $50ish zone too.

      Ohhh, yes. I would love suggestions for suits or blazer/slacks combos that aren’t blue corporate boring with no panache, and no flair, but which aren’t lime green plaid or something that makes them impossible for wearing to work. I work in higher ed & while there’s absolutely no corporate dress code somethings I want to bring on the polish when I meet with upper leadership, without sacrificing personal style.

      My favorite sleek, simple work top ever is the heavy silk tee from Cuyana, which comes in several versatile colors, and truly can be dressed way up or way down. Everlane’s silk shirts are good too; and they have some decent low-to-mid-heeled shoes as well.

    How about a post on cute but sturdy work bags? I’ve been using my company-issued (Timbuk2) backpack for the last four years. I’m ready for something a bit more chic, that’s still functional – able to hold a laptop, book, water bottle, etc. I looked at the Madewell Zip-Top Transport Carryall and Medium Transport Tote, but both were too small and seemed on the flimsy slide. Maybe a Cambridge Satchel? Help! Thanks.

      Carol, if you’re up for canvas, check out Moop, a woman-owned company that manufactures in Pittsburgh. Sturdy and (in my opinion) stylish bags in many sizes. I own the messenger no. 4 and while I don’t carry a laptop, according to the website the bag can accommodate one up to 13 inches. The company makes totes and backpacks, too (I’ve got my eye on a smaller crossbody now)..

    Good pencil skirts. And by “good” I mean, about knee length, high rise, and body hugging with a taper to the knees but not so body hugging that it’s a wiggle skirt. I used to have one that I could wear with a silk blouse & boots, and it looked both office appropriate and damn sexy depending on the boots, and the blouse buttons. The ones I’ve found now are either skin tight 50s wiggle skirts, or corporate. I’ve tried J Crew, Eloquii, White House Black Market, Loft but none of them are quite quite. Double plus extra points if they come in petite because I have a hella short torso and it’s a problem.

    Hi Kim–I hope I’m not too late for this post. I’m an author and am heading to NYC next month after a long *koff* sabbatical from the publishing industry (read here: burnout). I’ll have meetings with my US, film, and foreign rights agents, and two of my old editors. I’m West Coast-based and in a hot climate, so I’m less familiar (and confident) in regards to business fashion in the city. Any thoughts on looking put together while still representing my creative side … or do I simply give in to the all-black trope? Thanks in advance!

    I don’t wear makeup but have started to think about sometimes wearing something tinted…ish on my lips. I have a Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm but the color disappears immediately quickly on my lips, and yet also smears around being tinted anywhere it’s not supposed to be. My normal lip go-to is a Whole Foods store brand lip balm (tangerine flavor) because it’s mild and not petroleum-based. I wonder if something like a lip stain would work, with then lip balm over it? Basically I’m looking for something that doesn’t look super makeup-y, but would add a color, and wondered if you had any ideas. Or if this is too specific, maybe just makeup for makeup incompetents? Or any information on how to pick a shade if you find something that is a good option?

      This was one of my favorite things ever. I think it was the “Life is Good” catalog that stumped Kim

    I work in a casual office (in a male dominated field) and I pick up my young kiddo (1.5 years old) on my way home from work. Usually we go right to a park or play in the backyard and I don’t have time to change. I am looking for comfortable, washable outfits that let me move, and I’d love some suggestions. A lot of times I wear dark jeans, a blazer and cool sneakers, but I am stuck for other ideas.
    Everyone else has asked such great questions above though. I always look forward to reading your posts.

    My base wardrobe is black. I would love to know what your strategy is for accessorizing, and what accessories and color combos are coming in.

    I’d love myself recommendations on jeans! Thank can never get enough.

    I’d also love to hear your thoughts on ankle boots, short trench coats, and non-frumpy cardigans.

    And recommendations on what to wear when going out to dinner or a house party would also be great!

    Thank, Kim.

    I travel a lot for work and I’m desperately searching for a nice looking carry-on bag that will also transition to being a work bag when I arrive. Here’s the big hitch—I really want a bag that can slip over a rolling suitcase. I’m having an impossible time finding an option that doesn’t make me look like a stodgy businessman. I’m fine with it being tote shaped or even a backpack, just want a reasonably stylish option!

    Good lipstains if you know any? I’ve never had one I liked as much as Stila’s acai berry stain, and they no longer sell it. I’ve been looking for other good ones ever since.

    I have a specific-ish request: I’m having dinner at Per Se next month, with family. I’m not sure what to wear—I don’t want to look too work-function-like since it’s family, but I also don’t want to look like I’m on a date—since it’s family.

    What would you wear to dinner at Per Se with your folks?

    Tall pants (esp. for work, that arn’t cropped). Comfortable shoes. The best clean beauty products.

    My partner and I are planning a celebration of love/commitment ceremony (non-legal wedding). I want a party dress with a whiff of bridal, something in cream or white which has been hard to find. The sequin dress from this post https://www.girlsofacertainage.com/shopping/things-i-didnt-buy-last-week-redux/ is close to the mark. Can you find more fun dresses for special occasions to share? Thanks from a quiet but loyal reader!

    I would love a post on crossbody bags under $100 (even cheaper would be better as my budget is limited!)

    My question is kind of general, because I’ve got enough clothes….MORE than enough clothes! So, what are a few pieces you would suggest to update a GOACA’s wardrobe for Fall/Winter?

    Wide width (or even extra wide width) shoes. Or even just incorporate them into roundups like you do with extended sizes.

    “Grownup” clothes for those of us in arty/casual professions that don’t cost a million dollars. I’m a comedy writer/professor/director and I’ve started doing a bunch of keynotes, Ted Talky presentations, and panels. I’m happy with my normal funky jeans, button down, and boots aesthetic but in the clothes for these kinds of events I feel frumpy and some combination of under or over dressed.

    Fall casual midi dresses with sleeves and skirts that can go from work to weekend.
    And more corduroy, velvet or wool midi skirts or jeans!

    My niece’s Bat Mitzvah is a few months away and I am already stressing about what to wear. How about a post on appropriate outfits for family gatherings. This would be broadly useful for Thanksgiving and the holiday season, too.

    I’d love a post on pretty, printed tops (without collars) you can wear under blazers, that aren’t camisoles, either – something you can feel comfortable with when you take the jacket off. This is such a weirdly elusive category of tops!

    Not sure where to comment this – hope it reaches you. I’m a long time reader who is perfectly happy with the revamped site, but terribly disappointed in the new search engine. I love the archive!

    As an example: before, if I searched “capsule work wardrobe”, I would get a list of pertinent posts, just the titles, not the full-blown article. Now, when I do the same search, the only post that comes up is “Your Questions, Answered”. Why?

    I would be so grateful if you could return the old way of searching through the archives. I know exactly which posts I am searching for, but now have no way of accessing them.

    Thanks!
