Featured items: the new shrug and the brown pants.
I do love a shrug - they are indispensable (especially in black) for wearing with sleeveless shirts, blouses and sweaters for work, as well as strappy dresses for evening, when you don't want to wear a strapless bra or show your shoulders (not appropriate in the workplace most of the time). I had a black shrug a few years ago, but it was given away when I lost weight as it was too big.
The brown pants are a beautiful fit - they are a nice crepe weave with some stretch to them. They do hang a bit low, though, so I'm going to have to wear a belt with them. They replace my old brown pants that were a purchase prior to losing the last 10 pounds - gave 'em to Ruth.
I adore this blouse - it is an extravagant purchase for me, being pure silk and not washable, but I watched until it went on final clearance at the Bay & managed to snag it (the last one was in my size! Woo!) for around $26. Regular price was $78, I think. Considering I have to dry clean it (boo, hiss) every few wears, I'm not paying full price.
