The styling and much of the product on this site skew pretty young, but I am never challenged to find something suitably grown-up to want when I visit Shopbop. I think this crocheted Rachel Comey fanny pack is rather spiff, and would wear it cross-body instead of around my waist.
I showed you this Xirena top in white a week or so ago, and at the time considered buying it, but I feel like I’m going to get more wear out of the black version, so that’s what’s in my shopping cart.
Jumpsuits look awful on me always, but I never stop searching for one that will fit me just right, and I’m especially drawn to utility shapes like this one from ALC. The fact that it’s satin dresses it up a tiny bit.
A tote without a shoulder strap isn’t quite as practical, true, but it’s so much chicer.
I get a lot of queries from you guys as to whether overalls are appropriate for a GOACA, and my general answer is that if they make you happy, you should wear them. But I do think it’s best if they’re nice and clean-lined and not too tricky or torn or distressed, like these from Frame.
A nice updated take on the hippie girl dress that would even—with a cardigan or shrunken jacket—be suitable for the office.
I’ll never tire of cork platforms, and these crisscoss-strap slides look pricier than they are to me.
I’m traveling to Portugal in a couple of weeks (and am very open to suggestions regarding where to visit, eat, and sleep, so please share) and am considering acquiring this body pouch to keep my valuables close to my person and out of my bottomless airplane bag.
