Dreaming of longer, warmer days
This Talbots fair isle sweater is several years old, but I still love it. It just says Christmas to me, as does the buffalo check clutch, also from Talbots.
This time of year, Talbots just “sings my tune,” if you know what I mean. I could look at their holiday and winter catalogues for hours because they showcase the classic, preppy look I love.
I was also pleased with the new JCrew holiday style guide (the source of my flats and checked shirt—JCrew, not the guide). It featured lots of plaid and classic looks and models who look older than twenty-two. What’s not to love about that, especially the more mature model part? I think sometimes these retailers forget that diversity also applies to age. But I see some progress being made. And I’m in a holiday mood because I’m meeting my best and oldest friend for brunch this morning, so I’m not going to complain about dear old JCrew, which seems to have remembered how they became such a beloved retailer and, hopefully, are righting their financial ship.
Have a fabulous Thursday, my lovelies!
