  1. I love this post!
    Maybe you can think of a solution to my dilemma.
    I love cashmere sweaters likie the ones you showed here–but –I am seriously allergic to wool:even the softest cashmere, merino or –alas–alpace produces hives andnmrash. Can you recommend any good substitutes for those of us who are severely wool-challenged?

The Weekend . . .

Nov 16, 2012

A weekend is always a welcomed sight and with Thanksgiving waiting around the corner, I must admit, I’m ready to indulge. With a mix and match of cheering on my niece as she cartwheels across the floor, raking up the last of the leaves and trying to find time to go see and enjoy the new movie Lincoln, I’m excited to see and enjoy these next few days.

This past week on the blog was full of topics to get your mind off the unnecessary, inspiration to add a classic accessory to your wardrobe and a peek at the new December issue of Vogue. Have a look:

~Why Not . . . Wear a Scarf?

~Style Inspiration: Casual, Chic Comfort

~Readers’ favorite post of the week . . . 10 Things to Stop Worrying About

~Anne Hathaway – Vogue US December 2012

~Good News from Buick . . . and a much deserved thank you to my readers.

~This & That: No. 33 . . . an affordable chic flat, two articles to enjoy and more

~Want & Have Outfit: No. 9 . . . classic stripes for winter and a steal of a deal on a classic camel coat

And this week’s newsletter – issue #125 – click here to read.

Have a wonderful weekend doing exactly what you need and wish to enjoy. And until Monday, bonjour.
