this phenomenon peculiar to women "of a certain age."
But some garments just hook you, and this one brought me back to the shop for a second look, and a try, and then resistance was futile. Perfect for those fall days when temps are in the mid-teens, skies are blue, air is crisp . . .
As you can see, it's as much tunic as sweater, with a wide flare at both sides, quite a bit of swing. Pater doesn't love it, preferring garments that divulge shape more clearly, but he concedes that if it makes me feel perky, that's an attraction of its own. So far, I've layered it over a slim denim skirt with dark tights and a heel. It doesn't work well with pants unless they're slim, as are these skinny jeans. And while I'm not sure I'd trust its heat in the classroom, it's great for days when I'm sitting too long at the desk in my drafty office, not generating enough heat on my own. Why, the red alone turns the thermostat up at least two degrees!
Visible Monday. We should hop over there now and check out what other garb is being modelled by the fabulous array of women Patti pulls together once a week.
