Long overdue post, and perhaps quite longish because of backlog due to technical difficulties

After reading some of Angies' recent blog posts and specifically getting some tips on shopping for toppers, I ventured out into Downtown Seattle armed and determined. Toppers are essential almost all year here, especially as I bus to work and mornings can be quite chilly, especially with the winds coming off the bay and forming wind tunnels in downtown streets.

First stop, Loft sale racks. Three jackets for around $100! The Merino Wool Blend jacket in light grey/silver (#1 with white ankle length Loft jeans) and in black (left shot in #2 with my Old Navy boyfriend khakis and H&M lilly tee) were both winners. The navy jersey blazer with striped lining has been a little too heavy to wear, to date, but will post when I get it out.

Next up, Anthropologie (#3). I love a wide shawl collar moto, me. They had some in both white and lovely green khaki, but they are hoodies and require mucho tiempo to arrange/drape appropriately. I imagine myself rushing out the door in the morning, flinging it off in frustration due to my inability to get the hood to lie correctly! No buy there...at least not until they go on sale. Speaking of sale, found this (#4 front & 5 back) lovely little navy number that is a combo sweater with stretch panels with a nice smooth cotton lining that gives just a little polish to the collar. Wore it almost every day this week, with a python pencil skirt and fuchsia tee (my silver Ash high tops for commuting) and with a Vince Camuto sleeveless blouse, white Loft boyfriends and Danskos in #6. In #7, I wore it with my ancient J Brand Hoolihan grey cargos, a Two by Vince Camuto blouse and Nine West peep to sling backs. Thought about the nude patent heels, but passed (thoughts?). They are a recent find. Who knew (I didn't), thatPayless has some killer pointy toe pumps with cushy footbeds, decent height AND wide widths, for us high volume feet gals. http://www.payless.com/search?.....prefv1=Tan
They also have some cute cork soled, patent thongs in black, white, yellow and mint on deep discount for those who don't mind something between their toes. They have a strap in back, so do not flap! For some reason they don't show the white on the website though. http://www.payless.com/womens-.....20060.html
And just for fun, #9 a picture of my latest foster kitty, Chip. She was given up to rescue when her family could no longer keep her, and was matted and flea covered She's much happier now, and is sporting the latest look on runways for Persians, called a lion cut!
