Superstition + Weekend Reading

Pants | Rag & Bone
     I am not a superstitious person. At all. The most I will do is pray to the parking gods occasionally, and I'm not even sure that counts. However, I was superstitious about wearing these pants again. They are this Rag & Bone pair of jeans with a coated denim stripe down the side, along with a small chevron of leather. They are also like impossible to photograph (at least indoors, so I apologize for the poor quality photos, I had to crank the brightness up to an 11). I bought them secondhand at ReLove in SF, and took them on a recent trip. However, when I was wearing them, I got food poisoning (or something), and ended up puking my guts out. That was obviously no fault of the pants, but I was honestly scared to wear them again. I have such a visceral memory of how I felt right before I yarfed and I remember seeing these pants when I was doubled over. Obviously, as I had just bought them, I couldn't simply give up on these jeans without giving them one more chance. 

     This past week, I was searching through my closet for the right pants to wear with this silk top and boom - they were the perfect choice. The coated denim almost makes it look like the whole panel is leather, and they still felt nice enough for work. You'll be happy to know I did not barf in them again, so the curse is broken! I hope you have a lovely, vomit-free weekend as well. While you are doing that, here are some articles for your perusal:

1. The Cut (website is part of NY Mag) recently did a refresh of their site and they are freaking killing it. Start here: The 43 Day Fashion Shoot.

3. I enjoyed this podcast with one of the founders of Of a Kind. (Did you know they were bought by Bed Bath & Beyond?) (Glossy).

4. A question I think about a lot, and one I am thinking of doing a longer featured post about: "What Does it Mean to Shop Ethically"; and

5. Lastly, a look at how Stitch Fix is going high-end. Do you shop them? If not, will this make you give them a second look? (Racked).

Have a good weekend!
