I'd like to thank those of you who sent me understanding and  uplifting responses to my last post...I'm feeling much better! and Happy New Year!

Here's a vest I've been wearing a lot lately...

It's B6064 by Katherine Tilton, in a yummy scarlet cross-woven-in-black poly
taffeta from Marcy Tilton. Here is another hands-in-pockets view

and here is the perfect button I just happened to have in my stash!

 And here's another vest, this one by Lynn Mizono for Gisele Shepatin. Its out of a lovely thick fleece and I love the collar!

and the back...

It appears I can't have too many red vests! This one is from one of my favorite

And then, I saw this online on Shopbop and decided I had to have it...

The beautiful shibori scarf is from several years ago when I went shopping with

We are enjoying a visit from oldest daughter who lives in Salt Lake City. I am going to roast a chicken tonight and we'll watch Downton Abbey. What fun!

I'm headed over to Patti's Not Dead Yet Style Visible Monday where there's a giveaway going on...check it out!



  1. Love your red vests and am glad you're feeling better!


  2. Your red vest are really stars and you look fabulous modeling them, Margy. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

  3. Girl you are one classy chic. Very nice pieces!

  4. All are great pieces. You certainly have a wonderful style, Margy!

  5. Oh, I love that stunner of a vest in the first picture, but the other red vest is amazing too! I adore your funky glasses, Margy! Happy New Year to you!

  6. All wrapped up in that red goodness, oh my, gorgeous! And your beautiful sweater looks toasty warm.
    It sounds like a happy time over there with family visiting.

  7. Red is certainly you're color. Love everything., so stylish!

  8. No not too many! They look very stylish.

  9. I' very unburdened (I hope this is the right term) that you are feeling better. I like your posts and your single style and I missed you. Happy new Year.

  10. Hi Margy,
    Glad you are feeling better. Always love reading your blog!
    I love that Liz Mizono vest. Is there a pattern # to go with that? I looked at the Vogue web site and couldn't find it. Thanks

  11. Love the looks you've presented to us here, and oh, that red! A sure cure for the blue funks. Would you mind sharing who "one of your favorite resellers is?" I cannot think of one who sells Liz Mizono and am hoping you'll help clear that up.
    Thank you, and Happy New Year & Happy Stitching in 2015!

  12. All stylish pieces and all so you ! Looking good as always1

  13. You look wonderful in red, so I can see why you can't have too many red vests. Beautiful job!

  14. Love the crossover vest! Very cool….

  15. You always look amazing whether it's RTW or from your studio. But I think your creations run rings around any RTW piece :)

  16. They are all gorgeous, but I particularly love the Lynn Mizono for Gisele Shepatin red fleece!! Looks great on you! Enjoy the visit with your daughter!

  17. I love your bevy of red vests! The one that you made is so dramatic and vibrant. It looks great!
