In August, T Magazine rounded up a few examples of how “the traditional menswear fabric has been nipped and tucked to new feminine proportions.” I especially loved the Moncler sweater and skirt, and the Michael Kors cape.
I also enjoyed this in-depth article on how Harris Tweed — all the weaving is still done by hand, in private homes — has been saved from the brink of extinction.

Astrid really liked this Conscious Shopping Guide with the Zero-Waste Buying diagram because it moves the emphasis away from buying.
Laurinda appreciated how Janice at The Vivienne Files shows how the thoughtful addition of a couple of items can up the elegance factor of a utilitarian down vest.
“The ones where a woman with gravity-defying rollered curls is doing that one-small-step-for-mankind leap across an imaginary puddle.” Vildy was charmed by how Jess Cartner-Morley based her ’70s daytime outfit on the Charlie perfume advertisements, and loves this quote because she likes clothing lookbooks or catalogues best when they show women striding confidently.
Salt-sea enjoyed this post on how to tell whether a trend is going to last.

Angela K is intrigued by the Llynda More boot concept that lets you transform one pair of boots into 30 different styles.
