Personal shopping for a client…mission; a wardrobe of winter coats and jackets! Upon questioning my client, she expressed the desire to break out of a current style rut, wanting to upgrade her look with trendier and more fashion forward pieces! She needed something for work, a practical weatherproof casual coat for running around with her kids, and lastly a fun little jacket to wear on dates with her husband or lunch with friends! Hit the stores full steam ahead, with much success reported back to my client with 9 options! After a runway fashion show in her office we decided upon 3 keepers (the ones with the hearts)! I hope you’re prepared for keeping warm and looking good…Winter will be here before you know it! xo Robin
My obsession with the fisherman sweater started way back…when my mom hand knitted a gorgeous button up wool version for my father! I realized how cool it was to rock his oversized sweater with my broken in Levi’s, and Timberlands boots (it was the early 80’s give me a break here)! My obsession resurfaced on a recent buying trip were I had the pleasure of meeting the Branigan’s, a father and son duo straight from Ireland, who are manufacturer’s of hand-woven capes, sweaters, and other yummy wool pieces straight from the Emerald Isle. My chat with the Branigan’s gave me a full history of the fisherman sweater…the wool kept the fisherman warm and dry, the waters were rough and often these men were lost at sea and their sweaters helped identify who they were as each family had their own stitch! This only made me appreciate these sweaters that much more. Sooo…my Monday Must Have…A fisherman Sweater! But no longer the kind you pair with jeans (well still love that look!). But let’s take it up a notch!
