I’m into capris and having fun styling! But def have to be styled a certain way for me, I need something oversized on top so it’s just the legs part out, and a shoe that’s elongating whether a small heel or a beige mesh or else I look even shorter. The tan pair I have from toteme is also more elongating than traditional black imo.

I think the pointy mule moment compliments a Capri nicely! Agreed

You've made me so excited to watch the show! I am such a loyalist to the 1999 film with Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow that I had planned on not watching the show. However, your links and descriptions have inspired me to give it a watch! Also I AM A BIG CAPRI ADVOCATE- LET'S SHOW OFF THOSE CALVES!

You’ll love it! It’s a totally different vibe, there’s no comparison!

I absolutely recommend this version too! I loved the 1999 film and its visuals but this one had a different charm to it. x

thinking i'll dip a toe into capris by mashing up the princess diana bikers and sweatshirt vibe with capris for a workout and throwing a blazer over to go about my day. we'll see if I upgrade beyond workout capris after that.

Sell your partially used perfume on eBay or Mercari or poshmark! I love being able to buy a less than full bottle of something I like but wouldn't necessarily wear every day.

Ahhh I wore my very old checkerboard slip-on vans last weekend because Kai was wearing his checks, and I asked myself the same question- do these feel right again?

Absolutely loved the show, binged it last week and all the little trinkets at Dickie's place caught my eye. Especially that typewriter...just exquisite.

Donate the perfume (and any unopened makeup or toiletries) to a woman's shelter. I get monthly coupons from. Bath and Body Works, even though I don't shop there. I redeem the coupon for a free mini shower gel/lotion and donate those, along with the toothbrushes/toothpaste and floss I get from the dentist.

Such a great and thoughtful idea!

There’s a very active market for opened perfume. One is Mercari, which is literally the worlds easiest (imho) platform to sell or buy pre-owned. Tons of folks buying preloved on there. Also, on fb there’s an active group called FEMME FRAGHEADS EXCHANGE. List a pic per comment in one post or you can sell as a lot.

I leave partially used perfume, shampoos etc., that I don’t want to use any longer in the locker room at my gym. Could be a game changer for someone who forgot their toiletries bag!

I recently sold a bunch of 3/4ths full niche and harder to find perfume bottles on Poshmark and they all went within 36 hours, with a few being snapped up by the same person about six minutes after I posted them. For decants and samples, I pass them along to my friends based on what I know they like and don't like.

I remember wearing capris as a teen in the mid to late 90s and now, I feel I’m too short for them. Maybe I’ll revisit them with a much more educated eye.
