In between writing yesterday, I took a few breaks to search for those last few summer items I wanted which are likely sold out, on sale in sizes other than my own (8, M-L) or maybe hiding in odd corners of the ecommerce universe.
As luck would have it, one turned up: the Jeffrey Monteiro Tripoli dress which I wish I'd bought instead of the Banda when Gilt had their sale (if anybody wants a size 10 Banda, email me/leave a comment as it really doesn't fit me and alterations would be prohibitive). A store called Diani in Santa Barbara have the Tripoli in all sizes in gray and in a 4 in the adobe, the color I bought--just $97 with free shipping. Here it is:
Now all I have to find is a Rachel Comey Cabin dress in L (the brown cotton version) and I will have the summer items I coveted the most.
Next up: fall, and pruning down my closet. I've decided I'll be selling with my unworn Mayle Fedosia jacket (size 8), unworn Fabienne vest (I believe a L) in gray wool, lightly worn Danya dress (size 6) and some other goodies, including a Mayle blouse and possibly another couple of dresses. I hope to have photos up later this week.
