10 things i would actually wear from the SSENSE sale
velcro mary janes, side boob dresses, the best underwear for sheer layering & more
I’m at my usual cafe for a writing session. There is a sweet boxer dog sitting next to me named Gus. Peggy Gou’s new song is blasting through my headphones. I’m drinking a low caffeine tea, named something something dragon oolong…there’s an older woman here staring disapprovingly at me because of my Gil Rodriguez crop top.
Things I meant to work on: concepting for a video shoot, ordering skincare stuff I’ve run out of, planning groceries for the week.
Then I remembered I had an SSENSE ~customer satisfaction~ coupon because of a recent order that arrived damaged. So I ended up on the SSENSE sale page. It’s easy to get lost in the options, puzzle over whether you really like the clothes or is it just looking cool because of the sullen model. It’s easy to wander into the Margiela sale section just to browse discounted Tabis, even though I’m not really looking for a pair.
SSENSE sale roundups are my comfort literary genre, mastered byand in their respective substacks.
This is my edit: 10 things I would actually wear.
Cecilie Bahnsen Sara Sneakers: I have these sneakers in a pink/red colorway from eBay. The green flowers remind me of peridot gems. They’re so hard to find on sale and always low in size offerings. If you are in a place to splurge on a shoe, I can’t recommend these enough. They’re really unique and get a lot of compliments from strangers.
Aeron Ribbed Midi Dress: So, I got a ribbed orange giu giu dress on TRR and ended up keeping it because I liked the fit more than expected. It’s orange though so however I style it, it gives Miami. It left me wanting one in a more solemn color. It got me looking into more dresses with that specific sort of cut: a square neck tank top that shows just enough side boobage. I really love the cut of this dress and may order one—I only wish it weren’t viscose and poly. It led me to the brand’s seasonal sale on their website where I bookmarked this pink fringey number…so avant-garde resortwear.
