They got to hang out with some favourites last week, though. I loved this combo: last year's J-Brand skinnies, a 2-year old Club Monaco cashmere cardi, almost indispensable now, and a synthetic antique-map-printed woven T I picked up in San Sebastian this past May. I only wish it had been made in silk -- poly's ugly in summer, although this washes so easily and comes out looking fresh, so far. Also wish I'd picked up another -- I really love it and should show you the print up close some time to show you why.
as DOTTY -- Dress Over Tights, Thank You very much -- brilliant! So I'm doing DOTTY with stripes here.
I did mitigate against this outfit's all-too-newness by throwing on an 2-year old black leather jacket over it all, and that did make me like it better.
What about you? Are you hauling out the Winter Gear yet? Easing into Fall?
And do you like an outfit to mix up old and new together? Do you feel a bit awkward and obvious when the bulk of your get-up is brand. spanking. new?
As I often do on Mondays, I'm joining the crowd Patti's drawn together for another Visible Monday. She's wearing lace -- check out the many approaches to this transitional time of the year.
And thanks to Nina B for pointing out that my comments required that skill-testing Captcha word question -- I hate it on other blogs and thought I'd turned it off on my own. Let me know if it shows up again, would you? I'd like to keep it as easy as possible for you to join the conversation here.
