SANITY STYLE WATCH | Nº 8.

I won't go so far as to say I'd want the temperatures to drop and the wind speeds to rise. But the chunky knit scarf (or sweater as scarf...) is one sexy clothing piece that can really only be worn under these nippy conditions. Take cues from street styles and editorials that marry thick fall gear with lighter clothing or bare body parts. Duh, knits want naked legs/skinnies for a balanced silhouette. Also, heeled/wedged shoes prevent you from being swallowed whole by the bundles. +Note how none of the bags in these photos are tiny slings or puny clutches. Small purses disappear in fall wear, so I store mine until the spring.
Or until I get an invite to an intimate dinner party.

Speaking of intimate parties, my first Trunk Show with JewelMint will be this coming Sunday, in my on-campus studio. Coverage to come. But if you want in on the discount and can't come over, just use my code on the site at checkout: Seattle76 for 50% off your first piece


Chunky knits and delicate jewels. Perfect.

P.S. I don't have personal knits or jewelry to sell yet, but my "shop" is open:
