I read about this down jacket last week, and have worn it every day since it arrived in the mail on Friday. It looks (does it not?) like some fancy Japanese designer piece that goes for a fortune, but in fact it cost just over $100, and I picked it up on Amazon.
I wish I knew how to use Photoshop so I could retouch the cigarette out of this woman’s hand, but I do think she looks great, and is doing winter white the way I like it, which is not so much head to toe (a look only the very immaculate and vey rich can pull off, in my estimation) but instead mixed with other, mostly neutral hues. I’m focusing on sweaters today, because they’re the easiest way to pull the look off with a minimum of effort. (Also, when I say white, I also mean off-white and cream, which are close enough.)
But I do like these corduroys, I must say (these are good too, and cheaper, but not left in many sizes).
