Weekly Kitty:

The view from below. (Harriet loooooves to be up high.)

Since I adore both long jackets and graphic tees, this outfit is right up my alley. Joi is looking gorgeous in her graphic tee ensemble, too.

I love that ASOS worked with Danielle of She’s a Gent as a menswear advisor!

Diane talks about her personal relationship with thrifting and secondhand clothes, while also showing off a darling vintage skirt she swiped from her mom’s closet.

How to Draw Inspiration from Any Image

I’ve encouraged you all to find inspiration everywhere you look. I genuinely believe that sartorial inspiration is all around us so long as we remain open to it.

Bubu threw this request into the Suggestion Box:

I would love a post on cardigans – long short, crew, v-neck, straight, flyaway, ruffly, etc- how to pair then, layer them, what shapes work better on different heights, different builds, etc.
