A Little Retail Therapy While We're Waiting...

for the pants...hope to have a picture to share tomorrow. MEANWHILE....

From my recent trip to San Francisco and wonderful shopping with Shams:

 A wonderful knitted jacket from Mio, one of Sharon's favorite boutiques... it's
blackest black, but lightened to show details...don't you love
the peplum back?











A couple of fabulous items from Smith Alder in San Jose....
 A gorgeous coated linen jacket from Ivan Grundahl

and a beautiful pleated shibori scarf. Shams knows her way around the
boutiques...

And a a couple of eBay scores...
 a fabulous shibori-dyed jacket from Babette SF...



and a Luna Luz "Cheerio" skirt with my new Trippen sandals...
Those of you with sharp eyes and good memories may recall seeing Shams
in her version of the Cheerio skirt
We DO tend to like the same things...

And last, but not least, my Dotty shirt (are you thinking I LOVE polka dots?)


It's B5678, view C,
in a lovely gray/black dotted swiss from Marcy Tilton. I wanted to make a shoulder/princess seam top and this filled the bill.

 À demain....

  3. When you get bored with ANY of those pieces, send them up to Klamath Falls. You are looking even more elegant than usual-what is your secret?

  8. ...what Vicki said! The DOTTY is my favorite. It is beautifully executed, fits you perfectly, and the unexpectedness of the dotted Swiss used for such a well tailored and "grown-up" piece, makes it exceptional in my book. Add Margy and it becomes truly chic! You wear it well.

  12. Such wonderful pieces! The dotty shirt is beautiful. I see that you "pop" your collar at the back. I love this look, but it seems that all too often I have people come up and "fix up" my collar for me. Has this ever happened to you?
