The only problem I can find with subscription clothing services, is it eliminates the thrill of the hunt.
Take this outfit for example.
If I were to have bought it out of a box that was shipped to my door, put it on and wear it to a party, and if at that party someone were to say, “Oo I love your outfit, where did it come from?!”
My response would have to be, “A box.” The sound of ice falling in my cup breaks the silence. “It showed up to my house and I put it on.”
Instead, it would play out like this…
“Oo I love your outfit, where did it come from?!”
“Oh it’s a great story…I had only four hours until our family photo shoot and had NO CLUE what to wear so I SCOURED the mall frantically (all the while pushing Jackson everywhere). Finally, I went into Express and tried on this shirt. It’s a size larger than I normally buy, but it was on clearance, so I went for it and I love it….Oh and this necklace I got on sale, but it was on accident as the guy at the counter at Rue21 said they were having a buy so many get so many half-off sale on jewelry, so I ran back to pick up another piece and I grabbed this. At first, I wasn’t sure about it, but now I wear it all the time. And these jeans I found because I searched for the perfect pair online then found them at Aeropostale, went in and tried them on and they were on sale too can you BELIEVE it?!”
Not to say that I’ll never do a subscription clothing service ever. In fact, I don’t hate the thought of not having to put public pants on myself or Jackson and haul us both down to the store, gambling the whole time that I’ll find something I like and the trip won’t be a waste.
For now, superseding that is my love for the deal.
Regardless of how you get them, white jeans are a great way to “summer-ize” your spring wardrobe. Wear them with just about anything and they instantly make you look like you’re on vacation…at least if you squint real hard and are peering through a glass of mirky lemonade.
They are a great alternative to shorts speaking of which, here are some other great alternatives to short shorts.
