Sometimes you just have to ignore the Wheel Of Doom and your remote work “style” where you hate even your comfiest pants and think about a fantasy outfit. Like what you’d wear if you went to New York and, after a day in the Garment District, you’d go to the Met Opera. You would clearly wear a brocade coat you made that did not cost $695 like the inspiration. You’d probably line it in sky blue for good measure and wear it with some amazing shoes.

The inspiration, from Francis Valentine
A brocade option from Etsy


Another option from Ali Express, which is kind of shopping roulette but fun to browse


Let’s not forget the SHOES
