Things I did not buy, again

12

Check out the cool metallic stripes on this very spiff blazer, which I think this is quite grown-up rock chick.

And more metallic: this silver-flecked cardigan is the exactly-right amount of cropped for wearing with a dress.

These boots are a more feminine take on classic Red Wings, with a slight platform sole. Here they are in black, too.

A thin quilted jacket like this one comes in so damn handy: I splurged on one from Comme des Garcons a couple of years ago, and it’s one of those articles of clothing I would absolutely mourn if anything ever happened to it because I rely on it so hugely. It makes warm coats warmer in the winter, and in the spring and fall looks great layered under lightweight jackets.

This vest is pretty good too, though.

How cozy do these slippers look?

I keep hearing that these faux-leather leggings are the best, most flattering things ever, and am very intrigued.

I really like the wide neckline on this luxe cashmere sweater from Nili Lotan.

    I concur on the thin quilted jacket or vest, although mine is from Uniqlo.

      I bought a think quilted jacket from Uniqlo, too. It’s really great.

          I also just bought the thin quilted Uniqlo jacket and love it!

    I bought my first pair of the Spanx faux leather leggings in wine (last week!), and they are super comfortable. The hype is true.

    Dying to hear more about Spanx leggings. Faux leather and workout ones. Are they as good and as comfortable as rumors claim?

      I only have faux leather Spanx, but they really are spectacular.

      I broke down and bought a pair of the faux leather Spanx leggings about a month ago and am now plotting out how to wear them so that it doesn’t look like I am wearing them every day.

    Yeah, the faux leather leggings are badass – super comfortable, and you can style them so many ways – I’ve worn them with stompy boots when I’m playing with my band, with heels on date night with the H, etc.

    That blazer is awesome. As for the Nili Lotan sweater––doesn’t Everlane have a similar option? Wish I could wear that slouchy deep “V,” but the itch factor (sigh)…. And the faux leggings…something I will admire on others…

    Love all of these. My guy is a Red Wing boot wearer & therefore I need to get the ones above (justifying the purchase)!
