a vested interest

Whoa! Has it really been a month since I have written? Ok, quickly, the reunion was FABULOUS! Loved it. It was so incredible to see these faces and places that have been in my memory, and it was like I had never left them. The best part about it was seeing the people from my life long ago and having the feeling like we were picking up a conversation from the week before--and another feeling, no, knowing, that they were as happy to see me as I was to to see them. All great stuff. I lived on the memory of it for long after it ended. Until we meet again my friends........
Ok, now I can get back to chatting about fashion. You can tune out now, Todd. I don't want you suffer from another overload. :) Anyway, I have been traveling a lot so I have been working on the fall fashion in bits and pieces, trying to figure out how to update what I have with what is new out there. I have consistently been attracted to the same thing over and over--vests. There was a kind of sleeveless sweater out last year that I did not like for me at all, but these are different. I bought the Michael Stars cashmere sweater vest with its long front and cropped back--a great layering piece that will work now with a white t-shirt or tank and in the fall with a long skinny top underneath. A big fan of the Sanctuary shorts and pants this spring, I fell in love with the faux mink fur vest with front leather trim--it will definitely be fun with jeans tucked into tall boots. Finally, I had to have Juicy Couture's newest faux (again) fur toggle front hoodie vest. Juicy comes out with the best fur coats every fall--this great outerwear is so hip, and this year they have taken the vest and made it fabulous--fun fake fur, tweed and lots more to keep you cozy and cool this fall. Fall is around the corner, ladies. Hoorah!!
