oh L@@K, it’s!

Max Mara Bolero Vest

While I’m busy formulating my personal Fall Runway, I’ve been window shopping galore in shops, magazines and catalogs.

AHH, if only I was as lucky as my college friend Diane, who always goes up to Montreal at this time of year to shop wardrobe. She claims the City has much more flair than anything she’s seen in Chicago, so she beats a path to its door evey Autumn. Every year I swear to do this, to see for myself, because her style is beyond measure…

This is a very interesting year for fashion collections – my very favorite is the Donna Karan collection, with its rich monotone-on-tone offerings – check it out HERE.

The mood is romantic and feminine – more of those wonderful tulip shaped skirts that seem to be attractive on everyone.

Here’s another unique vest from Max Mara I saw at 900 N. Michigan Ave.


You see the monotone-on-tone again – a fanciful decorative piece over a same colored lighter-weight turtleneck…

I like cinched waists – here’s a sweater I made awhile back (Rebecca #22) that has similar detailing with a flounced skirt.
