Mr. Suz and I went out for lunch today and I put on my Boden paperbag waist skirt for the first time. It does emphasize my slight short-waistedness, but I just love the style and couldn't pass it up. POCKETS!!!
I think it will be really useful because it can easily be dressed up for more festive occasions with a silk blouse or sparkly top. And it's very cross-seasonal for this climate. I got the lightweight version suspecting it would be okay with hose or tights even on a cold day, and I was right -- today it is quite cold (for Vancouver) and I was fine in it, even in a shorter coat.
Mr. Suz and I were also comparing sweaters today. This Equipment cashmere (4 years old now?) only has a tiny bit of pilling under the arms whereas he has some BR cashmere that is a complete mess after only a few wears. So frustrating. Anyway, glad I sprang for this sweater. It was pricey for me even at NAS but has proved worth it because the pattern makes it a bit more interesting.
