It’s almost hard to believe that the first month of 2017 is already over, isn’t it? It didn’t bring better tidings than its predecessor, which was all the more reason for me to keep my head down and bury myself in work — not that I had much choice as regards the latter. January started off slow at the office, but it was only the calm before the storm. I’m not complaining, however, since the month was replete with opportunities to see, learn, and do new things. In non-work news, we booked a family vacation to Mexico! You better believe that I’m counting the weeks (and days!) until we hit the beach.
In the meantime, let’s look at some work clothes.
Last month, I finally caved and downloaded the Stylebook app. I won’t lie; adding my closet, one piece at a time, was a major PITA but it’s 90% done (I’m still working on my outerwear and special occasion dresses). I like the app, but there are things about it that drive me nuts and I wish it had better functionality. For example, there is no way to manipulate the number of wears to reflect the fact that the clothes have been worn before; I have 3 years of data that I cannot incorporate into the stats, which makes all of the calculations done by the app irrelevant. Anyway, my list of gripes goes on, but I would still recommend the app for anyone who wants to get more hands-on with their wardrobe management (and outfit planning), especially anyone who doesn’t already use another system (such as Google Docs) for the same purpose.
Between Stylebook and my new closet, I’ve had cause to think about my wardrobe quite a bit recently. I feel something of an evolution coming on. I know. Again. But that’s the fun part of dressing up, isn’t it? Rediscovering, reinventing. An extra reason to be excited in the morning.
