I'm right there with you, Rachel -- I like cats as long as they're a bit friendlier than the usual cat, and more like a dog!

@theworkwardrobe Yeah, it is a bit pricey...but you're right, having it be convertible cuts down on the price per wear! ;)

I don't think I've ever seen anything like this. Too cool!
@theworkwardrobe Oh yes, I've had to do that once or twice. ;) Always a fun experience...!
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Monday Start-Up: Breaking the Rules of Business Travel
My dad, who travels a lot for work, always assumes that I haven't checked a bag and rolls his eyes when he finds out that I did check a bag! These are usually for trips home from school, though, which, at their shortest, are a week to ten days and, at their longest, a month. Even when I'm taking shorter trips, I like to have the flexibility of bringing more items; I guess I just feel more comfortable with more clothing options. I try to solve this problem by having my suitcase be small enough for the overhead compartment (if I want to check it), but it expands to be several inches larger to accommodate more clothing for longer trips. And I have to say, I'm an EXPERT at stuffing the suitcase within an inch of its life! :)
@StephanieOdsgn Thanks Stephanie, I'm glad you like it! Chambray is so versatile.

@StephanieOdsgn @siennadoherty I think the nude heels in the first photo definitely help to elongate the model's legs -- more so than the black pumps, anyway!
9 months, 1 week ago on Today's Coveted Working Look: Chevron Print Ankle Pants
@siennadoherty Yes, if I were styling this for myself (I'm only 5'4") I wouldn't pair it with stripes -- I'd need something to elongate my torso to balance out the chevron. It may go out of style, but I think it's fun to indulge in trends now and again!
@StephanieOdsgn I think the size of the chevron helps a bit -- if it were a thicker stripe, it would be less flattering on. But you're right, this model is workin' it!
@theworkwardrobe @StephanieOdsgn Thanks so much, guys! I live for outfits that are pull on and go. :)

I feel like Boden can seriously do no wrong!
So true, Cat! The perfectionist in me begs to differ, but I know that getting a project up and running is more important than worrying over every last detail before launching.
