More stuff I did not buy lately

How about let’s start out with something that surpasses the GOACA price limit by a pretty wide margin? This leather blazer from Nili Lotan has been on my radar for a while now, and I think that as leather blazers go, it’s pretty perfect: nice and shrunken (but not too shrunken) and splendidly unfussy.

I could see throwing this boot on for early morning dog walks once winter hits, and I think they’re cool in a 70s groupie sort of way; here is a version without the platform sole.

I might have to wander over to my nearest Anine Bing store and try on this cashmere sweater, which doesn’t look like anything special until you realize that all the small details are exactly right.

I’ve wanted a pair of red sunglasses for a while now, and these are such a wearable shape.

Purple and black stripes are nice and bold and a little new wave.

I saw this top in a store window on Sunday, but wasn’t sufficiently intrigued to walk in and try it on, but it’s been on my mind ever since.

I love the idea of wearing a leather shirt as a jacket, or just having it as part of the mix on days when I’m doing some serious layering.

I tried on this cute plaid coat back in August at a store out on Long Island, but it was too stinking hot then to contemplate buying such a thing. It would come in handy right about now, though, and I dig all the leather details.

    I’m totally gaga (Has anyone else noticed that when you type “gaga” it comes up as a proper name? Or don’t you type gaga?) over winter coats this year! They are SO good. And I’m not a yellow person, either, Kathi! I’d love the black peasant blouse if it weren’t cropped. Aren’t we over [friggin’] cropped yet? It’s all I see in the stores.

    I am intrigued by the hook closures on the black blouse. Also want the black & purple striped sweater and plaid coat even though I am not a yellow wearer.

    Question for the world re: black shearling boots. I had an awesome-looking pair from Rag & Bone that stained my feet a truly gross shade whenever I wore them… so I sold them off and bought the very popular (in Brooklyn, at least) version from No. 6. And now the same thing is happening! Is this just the Price One Pays with black shearling? Is it happening to everyone else? Are my feet excessively sweaty or dye-leachy, or something? Will it eventually wear off and be fine? IMHO, the entire point of a shearling-lined boot is to be luxuriously barefoot in it, so socks are out of the question… but having my feet look filthy every time I take my shoes off is really not great, especially at the No. 6/Rag & Bone price point.

    I think I’ve read that the solution is to keep paper towels in the boots or run a baby wipe around the interior to absorb the dye transfer. I have shearling-lined Birks and another pair of shearling scuffs (both in black) and haven’t had any issues, but I know people do. I have quite acidic skin, too.

      A baby wipe — I’ll try that… thank you!

    I love all the leather! In fact, I’m currently on the lookout for some leather pants. There seem to be plenty of pairs that are tight and fit like leggings. I’d like something more trouser-like. I bet y’all know where to get some good ones, yes?
    In the meantime, must…buy…purple striped sweater.

      FYI: I got 2 pairs of leather pants (Vince, R&B) from TheRealReal. One pair was NWT, and cut more trouser-y- cropped, slight flare; the other more like a legging. much better priced than full retail.
