Husband Mike is a big fan of plaid pants for me. I’ve never asked him why, or if I have I can’t remember his reply. But in any case, I’m a plaid fan myself and since I loved the slightly slouchy, cropped fit on this CAbi pair, I nabbed ’em without hesitation. Their cuffed state and cropped length make them perfect for pairing with booties and heels, though I’m wondering if they’ll transition well into freezing temps and snow. read more

I have cat-related workarounds for certain delicate items, but actual, factual tulle? Forget it. No amount of careful placement, barrier methods, or vigilance will save tulle from the loving snags of lap-cat talons. read more
