It’s a new Marimekko/Uniqlo collab

16

I don’t adore this collaboration as much as I did the one they had last April, but it’s still got some pretty good items, like this long puffer; I also like this shorter one. Additionally, I think this flannel shirt is pretty cute, and I’m dying for this Heattech turtleneck and matching leggings. This flannel dress is worth checking out too, as well as this adorable padded scarf. And I’m definitely going for some of these Heattech socks.

    I bought one of the Marimekko puffers from the last collection — I’ve been shocked at what a good purchase it’s proved to be. Light as air and really warm. (And another standing ovation here for the wardrobe like the opening credits of a Scandinavian detective show!)

    I like Uniqlo, but beware – if you click on any links or ever order from them they will haunt you forever with pop up ads and emails.

      To combat this I only visit their site in Private/Incognito mode.

      They’re not as bad as the MoMA gift store. I got my husband a spirograph as an extra Christmas present last year and for well over a month afterwards I felt like I was being hunted down by MoMA. I feel like e-commerce doesn’t fully appreciate how the blitzing with pop ups and emails can discourage second-time purchases. I saw some nice odds and ends in the MoMA site this year, but didn’t want to risk a second year of stalking!

    I am not a fan of black and grey during this pandemic. Not feeling the love. This makes it difficult to get dressed because much of my clothing is black and grey. I need color. I need hope. I need brighter days ahead. Is it too much to ask?

      I know just what you mean, and no it’s not too much to ask! Scarves might be a good way to ease into wearing color. There is a higher variety and better chance you’ll find colors you like. I have 2 sweaters going back to the store this week. Online shopping is very hard in terms of color. Oh well, I tried. I assume no one does swatches anymore…

      No, it’s not too much at all! I’m in the same predicament. My wardrobe looks like the opening credits of a Scandinavian detective show. But I don’t know where and how I’ll be working or what size I’ll be post-pandemic. So I mope and buy lots of nice-smelling creams.

        Best laugh out loud description of a wardrobe. Ever.

    Since it looks like part/most of the winter will be a continuation of covid-stay-at-home those leggings and matching turtleneck are super appealing.

    Yes, same. It feels kind of wacky, but not in a good way (that or, I could never pull off any of those looks)

    We’re going back to hardcore lockdown in Los Angeles. Walking around my neighborhood over the weekend I saw many large, unmasked, indoor gatherings. Why can’t people just………..

      Austin is the same. Everyone seems to think they are immune. I did not originate this explanation, but it’s the only one that got through to my brother and sister-in-law: Have you ever gotten into an elevator or walked down a hallway in a public building and caught the scent of someone’s perfume even though the elevator was empty when you entered it or the hallway was empty? Think of that scent as Covid particles which can hang in the air for 45 minutes. Only unlike perfume you can’t smell it. It’s just there. Even on the street or at an outside restaurant––it just hangs there just like the scent of someone’s perfume.

        Ha! I used a much more crass version of this analogy to get my students to wear their masks. Fart jokes (and analogies) still go over like gangbusters with the K-5 crowd 🙂

        Excellent analogy, CW! Now, how to get the COVID19-deniers to accept that it’s a threat.
