What an interesting week it’s been…birthday, visit from my sister, oh, and then my site was down. That last thing turned out to be good, because it was the push I needed to finally switch hosts. Perhaps you’ve noticed that the site loads MUCH faster now but hopefully nothing else has changed. Well, except from not on there won’t be ANY more downtime. Ever.
Phew. Anyway, sorry for the issues yesterday, and please do let me know if you have any problems with anything here, reading, commenting, or finding things, and I’ll look into it. So far, the migration seems to have gone smoothly.
A note on this sweater : it was also a birthday present from my father (I know…he’s amazing!); there’s an All Saints store in Orlando and we always like to peek in when I’m there to visit. I had been looking to find a replacement for an old Zara cocoon sweater I wanted to give to my sister and found this one at All Saints. It’s even better than the Zara one actually, because I can wear it closed, or open (although I tend to wear it open more often) and it’s more versatile for multi-season use. I love it, although it’s a lot of material on me, even in the small size.
And here’s what’s coming next week: I was surprised yesterday by a nice gift from Everlane of their new chunky wool cardigan since I wrote that I wouldn’t be ordering one based on my experience with last year’s version. The note says that their new wool fabrication doesn’t pill, so we’ll see. The cardigan seems less “heavy” and the wool a little less thick than last year’s, and they sent me a large, so it’s oversized, and nicely draped in the back, but not crazy big, if that makes sense. I like it a lot, and look forward to trying it out, although it’s still WAY too warm for that here!
I also received my cashmere order from Everlane yesterday: the black cardigan and the black cropped sweater (purchased with credits). I am OVER THE MOON about the cropped sweater; it is absolutely the perfect cropped length on me, and fits beautifully in the size small (it fits me basically as it does the model, except maybe without so much room in the arms and at the waist). My only issue is now, that they just yesterday launched a burgundy version!!! And I think I’d rather have that than black….
Now, if it would just get a little cooler here so I can wear them…
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
