Textured Basics




I appear to be on a black and white texture kick these days. Just as the marled texture made this sweater a more interesting choice, the speckle slub texture of this tee instantly ups the ante on this wardrobe basic. I love how subtle the texture is, but the oomph it brings to an outfit is really great.

    Do you wear the size 5 in J Crew shoes? Also, what size do you wear in the Manolo’s? I wear sz 35 in JCs and SWs, but 5.5 in Cole Haan. I think my foot is a bit bigger than yours because I don’t think I’ve ever fit a 4.5.

    Btw, I love your blog. It’s uncommon to find a clothes blogger with such a left-brained approach! Your blog, and your buddy Extra Petite, are really helping me to find my personal style. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Jolene! I wear a size 5 in certain J.Crew shoes. The Elsie fits me great, but a few styles I tried lately were too big. I also wear a 34 in Manolos (34.5 if I add padding), and I’ve worn size 5 in Cole Haan before (although a few styles I’ve tried lately have been too big).

    Hi Kelly I just found your blog and you do really look fabuluos with you jcrew campbell blazer. I ordered a jcrew campbell blazer size 0p. After reading some reviews that it run small. I have narrow shoulders and 5’2 and my bust 34, waist 24 and hips 32 now Im worried that size 0 might be a bit big for me. I was surprise when I saw your photos with 000p and I found is better proportion than me.

    1. Hi Ella! Welcome! I have a feeling the 00P would be a better fit for you. I listed the measurements of the 000P in a Fit Review post, which might give you a better idea of how the blazer is running. Google search “Alterations Needed Campbell Blazer” and you can find all the posts where I’m wearing it, as well as the Fit Review post where I list the measurements. Good luck! =)
