Awning Stripes

Last spotted in spring 2020, approximately five minutes after it arrived on our doorstep. I honestly don’t know why I don’t wear this dress more often.

the J.Crew striped dress

I bought this dress a few weeks into the pandemic, when staying home seemed like a novel idea. It came in both a blue stripe and a red stripe, of which I bought both. Eventually I returned the red because it looked as though it was co-opting a fabric of a culture not mine. Though I liked the stripe, too dicey. I did not want to send the wrong message.

I skipped wearing the sash this time; I like it better without. Much more streamlined! Since breaking the dress out of the closet for the second time in two years, the floodgates opened and I started wearing it once a week. The care is relatively easy: delicate cycle with cold water in like colors. Along with the white fringe trim and pockets, the ease of care is a highlight of this dress.

the Stubbs & Wootton loafers

In a move surprising to – checks notes – absolutely no one, I bought my third pair of Stubbs & Wootton loafers. I was able to score these during the July Fourth sale, but it appears that they are now permanently marked down.

Fit-wise, I went up a half size. (My husband went up a half size in his Stubbs & Wootton loafers as well.) Perhaps it is my post-partum foot not going back to it’s normal size, but I find an eleven to be necessary.

the Stubbs & Wootton coupon code

I stalked the internet for a discount code, and you are welcome you lucky ducks, I found one! Unfortunately, it is not applicable to sale styles, the Chefanie collection, nor the Happy Hour collection save for the Celebrate and Martini designs. Glass half full: the twenty percent off does apply to the Scalamandre collection, including the non-footwear accessories, Peanuts collection, Monopoly collection, and Horoscope collection.

Use code FRIENDSOFSTACIE for twenty percent off (via Stacie Flinner).
