June 2016 Round-up (Other)

This playlist:

Clothes acquired:

I tried StitchFix and ended up keeping one tank top because it seemed like a waste of money otherwise (sunk cost fallacy, though…), and after wearing it twice, the verdict is: not a huge fan. And the service StitchFix provides is probably just not for me; I suspect it’s better for people who don’t have a clear sense of their personal style or find shopping for clothes to be a terrible chore, which is just not the case here. Plus, I wasn’t willing to choose the higher cost options, because if I’m going to pay, say, over $50 for an item of clothing, I probably want it to be something I’ve found myself and really love, but it looks like the lower cost brands that the site deals with aren’t going to be any more unique/interesting/high quality than what could be found at H&M/Forever 21/etc.

No picture of that top, though.

Top row: Shirt #1 from Topman, shirt #2 from Topman, sweater from Topman; Bottom row: Tank-top #1 from Madewell, tank-top #2 from Madewell, blouse from Free People via used clothing store

Excited that I’ll be able to look like a business casual motherboard next time there’s sweater weather.

Beautiful fashion:
