Random wardrobe meanderings part 12

The late, great Dave Allen as James Bond

A new translation

Hmmm...I had to start thinking about custom-made clothing. Actually it wouldn't even have to be custom-made; it could be produced on a small scale. Why not? We don't have dirt-cheap labor. What we do have is innovation.

(About Dave Allen, I really could not resist.)

brushstroke pattern skirt

The most cursory web search nets this beautiful skirt, in the same price range as J.Crew's. The piece is made by hand in the U.S. Like 'Crew, as I say, it's not cheap. But, should it be? I like it.

orange top

This is what caught my eye initially, for the orange hue, boat neckline and--best of all--the triangles.

hand knit sweater

This ranks pretty high on my drool list though it is spendy. It's hand-knit in Italy, and comes in a potential of 23 colors and four sizes.
