The Softest Sweater I Own Monday, Oct 2 2006 

Believe it or not, the softest sweater I own is not one of the designer cashmere sweaters I got on sale, but this $35 silk and cashmere sweater from La Redoute. Amazingly soft and silky, this sweater is super flattering – and more comfortable than a sweatshirt. Don’t let the price tag fool you – this is a high quality item.

Victoria’s Secret Sale Finds Monday, Sep 25 2006 

Victoria’s Secret has already put some of their fall clothes on sale, and there are some amazing pieces available. My favorites:

Kimono Sweater ($59)

Usually kimono style tops look a little too girly and empire waist for my taste, but this top is body skimming and sexy. I love it!

Double Breasted  Sweater ($39)

A military inspired sweater like this is always in style, and it looks particularly good on small chested / pear shaped women.

Crossover Bra Top ($35)

A great top for highlighting curves. Pair it with jeans or a great jacket if you want more coverage.

 

Rose Printed Bra Top Corset ($29)

This top can turn a basic black suit into a great evening outfit!

 

Belted Leather Jacket ($118)

I’m a sucker for body hugging leather jackets like these. Although this jacket won’t keep you warm in the snow, it’s a great piece for fall or spring.

Funky Diane Von Furstenberg Sweater Jacket Thursday, Sep 21 2006 

This Diane Von Furstenberg sweater jacket ($130) was originally meant to be a suit with a matching dress, but I say, only go for the jacket. The print is bold, but it would look fantastic paired with jeans or a brown pencil skirt. It’s definitely eye catching, and you rarely can get a signature DvF piece for this little!

Bluefly Cashmere Steal Tuesday, Sep 19 2006 

I believe that a woman can’t have enough high quality cashmere sweaters. Take good care of them, and they’ll last for a long time – and always be in style. I really love this pink Autumn Cashmere sweater. The cut is both feminine and clean, and the pink is more fun than frilly.

Bluefly Cashmere Finds Tuesday, Aug 29 2006 

Cashmere has certainly been getting cheaper over the last few years, and while that’s brought prices down for it across the board, it does mean that there’s some lower quality cashmere floating around. I say spend a little more to get an ultra soft, well made sweater. Bluefly has a lot great cashmere sweaters right now, and while they cost twice as much as cashmere from the Gap, they’re twice as stylish (at least) and almost certainly higher quality.

 

Hayden peacock 12gg cashmere crewneck sweater ($85)

 

 

This sweater comes in many colors – peacock just happened to be my favorite. At this price, I would definitely stock up on a few.

 

 

Autumn Cashmere – plum cashmere wrap sweater ($144)

 

 

This also comes in a nice variety of colors. And the cut seems very figure flattering.

 

 

Autumn Cashmere Рink cashmere argyle v-neck sweater  ($169)

 

I love argyle with a modern twist like this – the v-neck is sexy yet still classy. This sweater comes in a few color combinations, but I liked this one the best.
