"shopping my closet"
instead of running out and buying new clothes,
wearing the basics that I already own
adding a scarf or some jewelry to create a bit of interest
so that I do not get bored.
I purchased this scarf before I went to Paris last Spring.
I had planned to take it with me but found that it was too bulky.
It is perfect for the Fall and Winter weather here.
I love the colours in this scarf as they mesh and meld with all my black and grey staples.
The texture is soft and feels a bit like it has been "felted."
I picked this up at our local Pharmasave store in Oak Bay for about $25.00
I've worn in with this striped Lands' End tunic top and black leggings and ankle boots.
When we were in Vancouver recently
I popped into Eileen Fisher shop on South Granville.
I love Eileen Fishers designs
she sells such great basics
in the tones that I love to wear
the fabrics and textures of her garments are splendid.
I consider her prices to be a wee bit expensive now that I am retired.
I spied a lovely viscose charcoal top on the sale rack
in my size
the last one!
I had a $25.00 off coupon too so the price was even better.
I snapped a quick shot of the top in our hotel room.
The wool is cozy and warm and the fabric itself is soft.
The hem dips down at either side on the bottom.
The neck is a U shape so I can showcase some of my necklaces when I am not wearing a scarf.
It will get LOTS of wear...that is how I am justifying this "one new thing."
