Anyway, I have already purchased several sweaters for the season and have a sort of Wish List of sweater I'd like to buy but just haven't been able to talk myself into spending the money to do so. See, for instance, Sweaters at Ann Taylor that I posted on September 19th.
So, I added these off-the-cuff purchases from the Rainbow store at the Shoppes at Grand Avenue a few days ago (Photos of Some New Stuff!). Rainbow #1 received a lot of complements when I wore it to work the very next day with a beige scoop neck tank and the HEATHER TAUPE slacks (one of five identical pair except for the colors) by Briggs of New York. I'm planning to wear Rainbow #2 some time next week. I'm pondering whether to wear it over a black, red or white long-sleeve mock-turtle neck. Too late in the season now to wear it over a color match tank top, unless we get a heat wave (it's been known to happen in Wisconsin).
That beige scoop neck tank was one of four I purchased on sale at Boston Store by Laura Ashley: beige, white (to go with a 3/4 length sleeve white fly-away matching sweater), black (ditto), and a beautiful fuschia color that will pop with a black slacks and sweater. I don't have images of them, but look at these!

I have several grey sweaters, including a medium weight all-over cableknit pattern, round neck and long sleeves -- so long I have to roll up the cuffs so they don't cover my hands, that I purchased hmmmm - you know what, I don't remember when I bought it, and identical brown and wine-colored sweaters from Kohls. I've worn them a lot during the past 2 or 3 winters (maybe longer). They are comfortable and I wear them over long-sleeve mock-ne!cks or turtle-necks, but they are not exactly "fashion forward." LOL!
I need to mix things up a bit more! I need to get rid of anything that doesn't fit properly (like those 3 comfy Kohls sweaters). I'm still looking for a grey cowl neck (a BIG cowl neck) in either short or long sleeves. I've pulled out pages from advertisements in Vogue and Elle into a Wish File. No way, of course, can I afford those designer looks but I'm hoping to find some reasonably-priced close-enoughs! So far, no go.
While I'm at it, let me add a few more sweaters I really like:
|Is it perhaps because I don't have a waist at present that I |
am attracted to these looks? Bisou Bisou at J.C. Penney,
belted cardigan in black and cream. Love the big bands of
contrasting texture/color and the different weaves.

at Boston Store. This is brown (don't like color) - I
love the sweater.
