Things I bought, things I want

The cleanest, thinnest (like, thin enough to layer under a blazer) perfect little wool-and-silk-blend cardigan. An investment, but it is going to pay off handsomely on the cost-per-wear front, I feel it. I am in fact am wearing it as I type.

This super-soft scarf has one of the best prints I’ve seen in a while—and an unlikely but totally winning color palette.

I can’t find any archival photos to back up the following assertion, but this strikes me as the kind of striped tee Jane Birkin might have worn in the 70s.

    I so gushy love everything from Zero+Maria Cornejo….does it ever go on sale?

    I’ve been using everlane as affordable alternative…

      Yes, she does – and they are a wonder to behold (I say this as someone who has only ever bought stuff from her on sale).

    Well, if you say it’s a nice sweater, then of course I believe you.

    But I don’t understand the thinking behind that photo, and frankly I was hoping you’d gotten the pants! Dropped shoulders — why? I am not smart enough for this clothing.

      You, being very clever again! Love it!

      To take a different turn…

      I have purchased two of her knit tops in lovely condition and very nicely up cycled on a popular site that I won’t name.

      (Sometimes very neat women spend more than I am able on beautiful clothing and then quickly decide they are finished with it…)

        Well I do like her fashion gestalt, especially those complicatedly draped dresses. (And I’m sure this is nice too, I just don’t get the picture.) I buy secondhand too, in fact right now I am looking at eyeglass frames. As usual, what I want is *not* in style. Eeesh.

    I totally “get” the need for the sweater by Maria Cornejo. After reading the profile on her, it’s a solidarity move.
