airport outfits, celine dupes, makeup recs
where to find…
a women’s suit
goodwill/thrift men’s section - look for 100% wool or silk
alex mill corduroy if you want to look bookish and academic off duty
anine bing or tibi if you’re of the more sleek/scandi/minimal persuasion
acne and ganni if you’re the above, but like color
rachel comey if you like things like ceramics, preserved food stores, clogs
*note - for all brands noted i would recommend looking on resale
a signature pair of sunglasses that complements my face shape
i believe you can’t go wrong with the le specs x adam selman last lolita sunglasses. they come in several key colors (black/white/red/pink), easy to find under $70 secondhand, and they look like celine. i’ve tried out many sunglasses, from tjmaxx to designer, and i think the last lolitas are the best all-around.
quality basic trousers
i’m a fan of phillip lim trousers - there’s a lot on therealreal around $50 and the fabrication and quality is far better than what you could get with a standard mall or high street type brand. the doen nelda corduroy pants are also a cold weather staple; they look very polished with a belt.
