I bought 3 items at Talbots; all are influenced by YLF. Angie's blog post about layering tops got me thinking about layering turtlenecks, so when Talbots had their pima cotton turtlenecks on sale for $25, I decided to stop by. I got the turtleneck (1-2) in fuchsia - not a color I usually buy but I've seen a lot of fuchsia on YLF and decided to try it.

Also a waistcoat in 1-2 - after seeing Sveta's WIWs, I started looking for a lightweight waistcoat, and ordered one online. This one is almost perfect but it is darker than I thought - almost black with lighter pinstripes. Is it too dark for me? Of course, I unintentionally cut of my head in this picture, which makes it difficult to judge. I would love to have a lightweight structured layer to wear over turtlenecks and t-shirts.

Finally, after seeing Sarah's holiday outfit posts, I was in the mood to try some burgundy or wine colored tops that could be used for a fairly laid-back holiday or going out outfit. I don't have a specific occasion I need this for, so I was looking for something that would be appropriate for a variety of seasons and occasions. I like how this looks in the mirror but not so sure about the photos. Is this burgundy top good enough to keep or should I return it? I was thinking that this would be perfect to throw in the suitcase if I am going somewhere and need to dress up slightly in the evening.
