I've been going over all the September issues with a fine tooth comb since I am editing my entire closet. This weekend while on the beach in Atlantic City I decided to participate in my friend Felicia's 15:30 Closet Editing challenge. This is going to be extra hard with Fashion Week events, but I'm going to do my best. This will also help with the trip to Paris that I hope The Don is planning for my birthday weekend in December (hint hint). Back to school is usually a purging time for me as an adult.
I have been blown away at the new look of Talbots. It is totally effortless, refined, and elegant. I haven't stepped foot in a Talbots store for years. I mean YEARS, but now I must venture into the store and make a few classic purchases. I am loving their new denim collection too. The trouser jeans are calling my name. I do realize that a lot of stores are trying to catch up to the fashion juggernaut that is J. Crew. I've been a preppy girl since I had to get a job to afford the Ralph Lauren plaid oxford shirts in the 80s. My father was like "girl, I'm not buying one of these shirts every week you hear me." I heard loud and clear and got a job so I could buy my own. Also, Talbots has worked with Three Custom Color Specialists to create a limited edition red lipstick called Charmed. The lipstick is a gift with purchase at Talbots stores from September 9-18 with a $150 purchase or more.
I'm donating clothes to various shelters and curating my clothing collection. I'm an accessories junkie and when I travel I always return home with jewelry and food items. But, this camel coat has to come into my fall wardrobe to hang out. I want to pet it like a puppy.
