Are the fat fashion magazines at Walgreens!
I was at the store yesterday getting some necessary back to school items for me - (a box of hair dye for those roots and some deep conditioner for the beachy ends.) The mags are good. And the perfect diversion on a 95 degree day you aren't going to make it to the beach again. I got home around 3 from about a thousand errands, turned on the AC, got a delivery from the wine fairy (Thanks Roy!) and poured myself a glass.
A few things from the mags are worth mentioning. I'm loving these notched collars.
I'm also strangely drawn to the clog boots. Any thoughts on those? I love the tall boots they're wearing in every other photo, but I'm too short to wear them. Already owning the Fryes, and not wanting big heels since I walk everwhere, I don't have a lot of other options. Unless you guys know of some? Mid calf, with a mid heel, not slutty. Not cowboy. Am torn on biker, since the Fryes are pretty close in look and I have those. Discuss. Suggestions are welcome!
While I ponder the boots, I'm playing with this new stitch pattern. The green is a quilt square for a friend, and the white is Festival Alpaca I have from NHS&W. My rule is that I have to use my old festival wool before the next one, so this has to be knit up before Rhinebeck!
Maybe it'll get a notched collar? I'm thinking however, of one of those flowy cardigans with the drapey front. Alpaca drapes so nicely and this stuff is so soft! Not sure that's notched collar material. That collar lends itself to a more tailored look -- at least that's what I think.
And for those of you wondering what's coming before October, the Moody Broody Gray Club design is almost ready. Am guessing within the next week or two!
