Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan

Seeing Red

One of my favorite colors, it takes up several hangers in my closet, and that doesn't include a pale pink fisherman's knit cotton turtleneck, a deeper pink cotton turtleneck, or a wine-colored cotton blend cableknit sweater!  In honor of Valentine's Day, soon to be with us, and in honor of Boston Store, who put together a very clever marketing campaign:

Calvin Klein ruffled sweater dress, on sale for $61.59 from $118.00.
It has great lines (figure-flattering for those of us without waistlines) and a great color.

Ellen Tracy "jewel side" dress (there's a "jewel" at the waistline).  I find the jewel tacky but the dress is otherwise lovely (it reminds me of a Grecian goddess dress) and could go from work to cocktails - just remove the "jewel" before you wear it!  Originally $134.00, now on sale for $69.99.

Evan-Picone Surplice V-neck dress with gently ruched side, a gorgeous dress!  I love the slightly more ruby-toned red, too.  Originally $99, marked down to between $60 and $70 (not sure why the price differential, unless they're charging more for larger sizes -- you know "more material", argh!)

I am in serious love with this mini-handbag that measures a mere 7½" x 5½" x 2".
It has great lines, love the faux-croc, and a shoulder strap you can use if you choose.
It's Relativity's "Charmed" Crocco mini-bag on sale for $24.50, originally $35.

No, Boston Store has not hired me to shill for them!  Check out these classic pumps.  Now I'm
not a platform shoe gal; in fact, my last encounter with a pair of heels (in St. Louis) did not
go very well, but these almost look - well - comfortable!  How that could possibly be,
I've no idea.  They're by Circa Joan and David, called "Pearly" and on sale for $89.

This sweater is more my speed, darlings :)  It's by Jones of New York and marked down from $99.00 to an incredible $22.20.  The description says "slightly open stitching" and "cami not included" --
well, guess I'd better buy a red bra and cami!  Wooooo woooo, getting sexy in my old age.  As long as this isn't a "dry clean only" number, this is going home with me tomorrow night after work.
