Above, my new Vince jeans which I've already worn at least ten times in the three weeks I've owned them. They're very heavy denim, almost no stretch, high-waisted. . . .I'd been keeping an eye out for a pair that had the, mmmmm, integrity or something like, I was looking for, while still having a bit of fashion-y panache, and these are the pair. Back-pocketing is well placed, the legs are just wide enough without being sloppy or too dramatic, and ditto for the just-cropped-enough length. Sadly, the Vince sneakers I'm wearing them with are on their last days (holes coming on the soles). . . I almost abandoned the faux fur vest in Europe last fall, thinking it had served me well enough but that I might not wear it another year (casualty of three-months, one-carry-on: weariness with some garments!). And that printed sweater is a very lightweight merino (J Crew, bought this past spring).
What about you? Weekend plans? And are you well into the seasonal wardrobe change? Do you tend to put all the summer gear away and switch right over to the woolies, or can you blend the two a fair bit? And which of the garments or outfits I'm wearing here would you find at all useful? Which pieces do you rely on most? Are you, like me, becoming more and more focussed on certain silhouettes so that you, too, might be able to manage on a limited wardrobe of just the right pieces -- not quite three months in one carry-on, perhaps, but something like? I know, I know, too many questions, but you know you can pick and choose, right? Or not answer them at all, just wave a hello or add something new to the conversation. . . Always good to hear from you. . .
