Happy New Year.

Today, PG&E (our beloved power company) doused the electricity around 11:20 AM, not to power it back up again until after 2:00 PM. Happy New Year to you guys too. Fortunately the gas was still going, so we spent our holiday huddled around a gas fire, playing the world's least ethical Scrabble game (imagine someone fondling the tiles inside the bag, attempting to feel for a blank???). In the end, words such as "wabet" were accepted (what Elmer Fudd hunts)...oh wait, wabet is a word?

I just realized I posted something every month in 2010, which has to be a first. I should do a Best of 2010 wardrobe recap.



The height (depth?) of my turtleneck obsession. I still cower inside these once the weather turns. J.Crew cranked out ton-loads of Tissue Turtlenecks at one point, but a good turtleneck is relatively easy to find. Yay!

J.Crew Nico skirt in Black Blossom

Love this skirt (no, it is not as short on me): great for summer, travel, casual Friday with tights, has pockets, goes with every color, yadda yadda....

My two Boatneck Painter tees—this is actually light pink, like a ballet slipper, the other is light bluish-greenish grey—have served me well. The boat-shaped neckline makes them fancier than plain tee shirts, and the colors are sublime. Hope the 'Crew puts out more in 2011.

This skirt has been lovely for weekends and casual Fridays. I'm usually not too big on prints, because most of them, well, suck, (are extremely uninspired) but the anchor-and-rope design charms, and I like the high waist.

Jackie shells, I love you! Why don't they carry them in the stores?

These are pretty handy tops; working in hot to coolish weather, coordinating with matching Jackie cardigan for a non-saccharine-looking twinset, even going nicely with non-matching Jackie cardigans, or any number of office or weekend clothes.

J.Crew Crinkled Chiffon Tunic in Orchid Shadow

Okay, I didn't buy this in June, merely commenced drooling over its fine self. Wish there were more crinkled, doubled-layered silk tops from the 'Crew, and in a wider color choice (there were only the three above).

Oh, and I wash this in the machine (Woolite, delicate cycle, mesh bag) and hang to dry. Silk should be washable.

This is becoming a huge post. Probably should break it into two.
