I feel like I’ve said this about a jillion times: Even though red is my absolute, all-time favorite color to see AND wear, I don’t own or wear as many red pieces as I’d like to. For ages, my only red pullover was a merino crewneck that didn’t quite work with skirts, so I was delighted to find this slightly shorter scoopneck. And I took the opportunity to mix other reds and red-based colors into my ensemble. read more

Still drapes beautifully, though, and is bound to become a year-round favorite. read more

I had the cutest outfit planned for today, friends. But when I woke this morning, I found myself in the throes of painful, violent, relentless … er … let’s just call ’em intestinal woes. And the last thing I wanted was a pair of skinny jeans squeezing my tum and nethers. So out came the ponte, the jersey, and the engulfing sweater coat. Plus those fabulously slipper-like Fryes. The skinnies can wait until my innards have stopped rebelling. read more
