Fall is in the house

Hey everyone - the chill is in the air! :-) How is everyone doing?

Did anyone pick up one of those $25 Talbots Cashmere sweaters the Todays Show had on? I have a Cashmere allergy (FAIL), so am not disappointed that I missed the online deal. They say there are still some in stores, so it may be worth a call if you like a nice v-neck cashmere sweater!

There are some lovely things in the newest Talbots catalog - and I am sooo glad to have a fall season to enjoy them in! :-) With an eye towards the blustery fall days, I am thinking of nice, warm clothes to bundle up in!

This Boucle Sheath Dress seems pretty basic, but I love black and white. I think the addition of the boucle texture to the sheath dress silhouette is lovely.

On this Cable Twist Cardigan, I love the cable detail that is right at the waist. Its not pictured here well, but at the waist there is this great twist detail. The red color is great, and I like the button treatment on it, not a cheap looking button here. This one is a cashmere blend, so I will have to leave it behind, but its one of my fave things in the new catalog. (Its the little things)

Lastly, my fave new item is the No-close Cable cardigan. I have the spring, short sleeved version of these from days past, and I love them. I plan to add one of these cosy looking sweaters to my own closet. Oh, and I love pockets.

And now, back to me. (My apologies to the Old Spice man)

This is one of the other shirts I got at that great Loft sale, if you can find it in stores still, its probably $7-$8. Its got one of thost banded hems, which I am never really sure of, but I like the details in the front. Which I neglected to photograph. :-/ I grabbed it for $10. Cardi and Pants by Talbots. :-) Shoes from ?

Hope everyone's week is off to a good start.


  1. Beautiful top! Now you're making me regret missing the sale. :(

  2. Pretty top. I passed on it on the hanger due to the ruffles because I'm all ruffled out. But it's not really ruffly, it's drapey. May have to swing by and check it out.

    Lots of goodies in Tal's catalogue.

    I scored a Talbots winter white cashmere cardi at Marshalls this weekend for $16.99. It still had the Talbots tag on it complete with several markdowns in red, the last one being $79.99!

  3. I'm so upset that I missed those sweaters!!! I was off and totally missed the event. By the time I heard about it, all the sweaters were gone. Boo hoo.

  4. I didn't even heard about the sweater deal! Oh well!

    I LOVE that sheath dress!!!

  5. I really like the color of that top on you! I know what you mean about banded hems, I never can seem to figure them out either. Somehow I missed that boucle sheath dress in Talbots catalog, it really is beautiful. I've always loved boucle, but it doesn't always love me. Depending on the style and cut of the fabric it sometimes tends to add up to 10 lbs to my frame because of the thickness of the material. I'd love to see how you style it if you get it! ;)
