Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

I luv it! Perfectly, functionably glamorous, if you ask me! Mark doesn't have to wear it ;)

Katie said...

Aw what a lovely haiku :)

Ann Nichols said...

Oh...it's so cozy too! It can be wrapped around and protect like a comforting blanket!

Lisette said...

Like it!

Becca said...

I like the whole outfit a lot. Stripes make everything cool! And the little gold triangle necklace adds a whole lot, too.
What do you wear??
You should do an outfit post sometime!

Leia said...

It looks so comfortable! (boys always make the funniest comments about clothes, haha)

Kelly said...

Ms. Bright said...

This cracked me up. Sounds so familiar...silly boys.

I want one too, that whole outfit is WOW.

kirstyb said...

love it xxxxx

ellie said...

Brilliant! You have a collection of poetry ..husband poetry...(grins)

I so wish I could find another shrug..kind of ..only its makinly a scarf with sleeves. I saw the crochet pattern once, but lost it.

Thanks for the question. Well, this story is sort of a progression for me. Something to learn from. Some stories find an end. Some don't. I had written "book 1" mainly about high school. Then I noticed how my friends were growing up ... since high school.

I need to dig around for more sweaters and jackets like this.. I just might need them today. Its getting colder here in the mid-west. At least no snow yet. Although, I've heard Denver got snow and its snowing in North Dakota.

Nicole said...

Too bad it's sold out! I think it looks great--fashionable AND warm!

Gina said...

looooove!!!

i had no idea you are a poet :)

too cute

that jacket is fabulous.... all the better reason to buy it, you can tell him it is a multi purpose item.... hehehe

saying things like that usually works for me :)

Dressing Up For Me said...

Hahaha! My hubby would always say that I look like an ant when I wear something like this but it´´s a pretty jacket. I want one too! :)

Gina said...

ooooooooooooo nooooooooooo!!

it's out of stock???

& it's only $68...

i think u need to purchase it immediately when it becomes available.

i want it to but at 4'10
i think it really WILL be a blanket hehe

jeanette from everton terrace said...

I like it too, color is very nice. I only have one article of clothing from the 80's and it is a coat very similar to this but with a smaller coller. Black, Miss Selfridge from England. I have always loved it.
To answer your question, our average low temp' here in Phoenix during the winter is in the low 40's (fahrenheit). It was 84 during the day yesterday. Probably like summer to you!

Fashion Meets Food said...

Lovely haiku. I think it's super cute. But being 4'11 it would definitely look like a blanket on me :/

Haha, I love your Haiku! That sweater is amazing. Every time I find something I NEED at Madewell, it seems it's sold out. Maybe I need to check there more often. Or maybe this is a blessing in disguise.
