I’m carving out some time this weekend to edit more of my photos from Paris and the Dior exhibition and will post more soon. And I’ll be contacting the five winners of Alyson’s book, “Know Your Style” and announcing on the blog once confirmed.
Let Me Say This About That…
I’ve been receiving feedback that some of the items in my travel wardrobes and outfits are too costly. All of the pieces I travel with and wear in outfit posts are items from my personal wardrobe. Many of the pieces (especially some of the Eileen Fisher basics) are now a few years old and were purchased when I was still working full-time as a corporate executive. They’ve held up well and the cost-per-wear is now actually quite low. I think that quality shows, and will almost always encourage buying fewer items of the best quality that you can afford. This has served me well in building my own wardrobe, and I intend to stick with this philosophy.
I also believe in supporting brands that are ethically produced and strive for environmentally sustainable manufacturing processes. So much “fast fashion” ends up in landfills now.
That said, I hear you and I get it. And I will try to do better with including more budget-friendly options in the future.
Quite a few of you have specifically requested a less costly option to the scarf I’m wearing here. (Mine’s a couple of years old, and no longer available.) I’ve tracked one down! The scarf shown on the right is very similar in color combo and pattern, and it’s wool-free! The down vest I’m wearing on the left is from Uniqlo (and is currently reduced).
