back to this
and I never for a moment regretted it. My brocade jacket was stylish, comfortable and layered well. I wore all three of the jackets a lot, and layered the raincoat over them as needed.
I added one of my vests if it was cold.
The only vest I didn't use was the black and white ikat one.
and that was due more to shoes than anything else. I wore my new Stuart Weitzman boots most of the time (they were fantastically comfortable) only switching to the Cole Haan when it really rained.
and because I wore the boots so often, the pant lengths were more important than I realized...so the black jeans and the red jeans got worn the most.
And...because I didn't wear the Eileen Fisher pants, I also didn't wear the tunics I took...so I could have left those at home!
Live and learn!
I wore all my tees and turtlenecks. Yay!
I wore my hat a great deal of the time...not the rain hat, and the scarves and purse were in daily rotation
I think this was the most cohesive wardrobe I've ever put together, and I enjoyed and felt good in my outfits.
So glad I had my red raincoat!
I got into the studio this last week, made a wadder and gave it away. I need to get back into my stride!
One thing that happened recently was that I was chosen by the BurdaStyle Sewing Community as one of the 2015 Top Blogs for Fashion Sewers", and it was a lovely surprise. For those non-sewists reading my blog, Burda is a publishing company that was started
in 1898. It has been publishing a fashion magazine based on sewing since 1949, and designing sewing patterns since the '50's. I'm honored to be in such august company!
