    I’ve had my eye on those dress shirt bodysutis from J Crew for a while – my biggest complaint with dress shirts is the endless tucking. The only reason I haven’t pulled the trigger is that my office is super casual so I don’t think I’d get much wear out of them. If anyone does try them, though, let me know what you think!

    I am in love with that velvet moto jacket but they are all out of smalls. Any similar options? I’m devastated I missed out on this…
