Jenni e-mailed me with this great question:
I’m working on dressing both for comfort and figure flattery in the home context, as I (and my hubby) work at home some days. I also have “new-to-me” breasts – they’ve grown a couple of cup sizes in the last few years and now I’m 40+, so support is key. I do buy good quality bras – but I don’t really want to wear all that hardware when I’m in all day or hanging out with hubby and kid at night. Still, being nicely contained is more comfortable (and makes me feel a little better when I catch my profile in a mirror). What do you and others do for support and flattery when not out and about in the world? I’m too big up top to get much mileage out of a yoga top, and I would love some ideas or to know what others are doing.

The following items have long been viewed as investment pieces: Handbags, winter coats, classic shoes. Why? Because those three items get more use, wear, and abuse than other items. Even a favorite pair of jeans is unlikely to be worn every single day for the duration of a winter, and no dress or sweater will ever be worn as hard as a pair of shoes. Bras are occasionally added to this short list by style experts who recognize the importance of a good foundation, but everything else is up for grabs. You can invest in whatever you’d like, of course, but if you’re seeking expert advice, it’s generally bags, coats, and shoes.

Reader Katie sent this request via e-mail:
Could you make a post about your sleepwear? For instance, I would love to know if you are just as fashion coordinated when you go to sleep as when you wake up in the morning? Or do you tend to wear t-shirts and boxers? Either way, I would be interested to know if this has a psychological effect on your fashion style. For example, do you wear t-shirts to bed because at the end of the day you are exhausted from being “matchy” all day long or do you wear pajama sets because they inspire you to be “matchy” because fashion doesn’t stop when the camera stops rolling and people are gone.
