on working from home

There are lots of great perks about working from home. I can empty the dishwasher on my computer breaks. I can make lunch in my own kitchen. I can wear the same thing and no one will ever know. Unless I tell you. Which I'm about to.

This is it most days: grey tee from Marshall's, Gap boyfriend jeans, Old Navy ankle boots, Baublebar necklace, Rayban sunglasses. 

Things are a little hectic around the mindful closet house these days, so I apologize if posting has slowed down a bit. When I'm not wearing the "working-from-home" outfit, I've been dressing up for Saint Louis Fashion Week events, of which there have been many and many more next week. Updates to come, I promise. 

Tonight is the Project Runway show at the Fox - I'm so excited, since I'm a huge fan. Has anyone else been watching this season? So. much. drama. If you want to join me, there are still tickets for tonight and next week here!

I recently read Betty Halbreich's book Secrets of a Fashion Therapist - I checked it out from the library since it's out of print, but apparently it will be re-released soon. There was great advice throughout - I've adopted the phrase "sale brain". Accessible personal shopping appears to be on the rise, according to the Wall Street Journal - here's hoping I'm part of the trend.

The best red carpet of the year, the Met Gala, is happening tonight! As Bridget Jones would say, I'm v. v. excited. Popsugar has a roundup of some past memorable looks.


Sometimes I miss living in New York, where you could do some serious shopping on the walk to work or on your lunch break. The neighborhood I work in now has none of that, which is probably a good thing for my budget - but a traveling fashion truck? In St. Louis? That I could get behind! I'm following Rack + Clutch on Facebook and Twitter so I can keep tabs on their location - who wants to come with? Here's an article from the Post-Dispatch about Emily Ponath's fashion truck.

This image is just some eye candy - but it actually reminds me of the best dress Stanley had in his final Project Runway show - anyone else out there as obsessed with this show, even after 11 seasons, as I am?
