* and a Footnote.
I’m a fan of the Footnote - not just because I am a writer and it’s super clever, but because it perfectly punctuates your advice. Brava!
Wow those flat Mary Jane's are taking me back to the early aughts when all the cool nyc fashion girls were wearing the cheap fabric printed Mary Jane's from Pearl street market in China town with their slip skirts. Love the more adult version!
Love the footnote (and the shoe - burgundy velvet, yes please!). Great article, and I love the inclusion of Madewell jeans in this newsletter as they have slightly more inclusive sizing than some other denim labels and thus might be a bit more accessible to a larger cohort of readers :)
and now you have us all obsessed with the belt loop tie!
I love your jean cinching! Cooler than wearing a belt, in my eyes. I wonder if a tiny metal carabiner could give you an alternate version with the same effect?
Footnote! You are brilliant.
Was wearing a pair of too-big jeans today and tried your cinching trick with a small piece of rope and it worked perfectly and looked so cute! What timing!
I recently read that belts are too classic looking worn with jeans and haven't stopped pondering this idea! So I'm interested in other ways to cinch my jeans, because a number of them are falling down.
