quality…it does make such a difference
 in the feel, the
fit, and the longevity of the garment.  
There are many
different price points for quality…it takes
research, trying
things on, and true shopping skills.
For example, today I am wearing three fabrics I love:
The Pants…Eileen Fisher  56% Rayon, 38% Nylon, 6% Spandex
The Long Tunic…Eileen Fisher   100% silk
The Jacket…CHICOS  also, rayon, nylon, and spandex
But, I confess to also loving leathers, knits, cotton,
wool…the fabrics must breathe, feel soft, and fit!  You also may want to

  1. Winter favorites are different from what I prefer in the warmer months, but I love cotton with stretch built in for both cold and warm temps. Cotton knits always work for me and I love knits that drape/flow. If I'm staying home and it's cold out, I'm in fleece jackets and leggings.

  2. Do you remember mohair sweaters? When I was a preteen, mohair sweaters were all the rage. I remember getting one for Christmas and loved its softness. I haven't seen mohair since then, but would love to try it one more time.
