  2. I have been following your blog for a while now and I just love it! The simplicity is divine!

    But, I need some help and was hoping you could advise. I am in search of the "perfect" v-neck sweater and can't seem to find any that fit the bill. I am looking for a cotton. silk or cashmere v-neck that is semi-fitted. It sound like a relatively simple, easy to find item, but I haven't had much luck. No wool (allergic), no cables, and almost any colour could work (although I long for black). Any recommendations would be great! I am very flexible with my price point.

    1. Christina,
      As this post is old I am not sure if you found what you were looking for . I too was on the quest for non-wool semifitted v-necks (and living in the hicks of Northern Alberta, our choice of shopping venues is sorely limited- as of this writing Alberta has exactly 2 department stores to choose from - The Bay and Sears-unlike our lucky USA neighbors- so that should tell you how bad it is to shop here( plus I am not sure what planet the buyers at these dept.stores are from but they constantly fill the stores with god-awful stuff( bling covered jeans,tops,shoes and accessories-it is no wonder the women here including the seniors look like hell!) Anyway as such I resort to alot of online shopping and bingo- found a great UK co that ship everywhere for exactly what you are seeking( and yes- I have purchased what I talking abt from them and can attest to the quality, fit and amazing price).It is where I now get all my knitted needs.
      As I am not certain if I can write their website here in case someone thinks I am an employee or such which I will state for the record -I am not-just a very satisfied customer-I will do it this way: google the following -woolovers. It should bring up their site.
      I hope this helps

      (Vivianne- I hope you don't mind my sharing of companies that I personally found to be great & on another note- please don't ever stop your blog- it is amazing and I read it faithfully albeit as a lurker! Thanks to you I do not appear to be color or wardrobe challenged and everyone thinks I just have a"inane and fabulous sense of style and color coordination" :)

  4. More to die for navy schemes! Love!

    For Christina: I live in cashmere sweaters all winter long and I love the ones made by Charter Club sold at Macy's. They're good quality, durable, and very well priced and come in a rainbow of colors. There are certainly pricier brands and better quality out there, but I think these offer a lot of bang for the buck.

  5. For KBG in DC: Thanks for the recommendation! I have been reluctant to try that brand because of the low cost (as a sign of quality). Glad to hear that you have had good luck with this brand. I'll check it out.

  8. Beautiful, Vivienne.

    Christina: I have two Neiman Marcus brand cashmere v-neck sweaters that wear like iron. They usually come in a limited slection of colors, but black is offered each season. Their sweaters are, or very soon will be, half-price. When you purchase your black sweater, DO NOT SKIMP. Both of my sweaters (the other is light blue) still look fantastic and the color is unchanged in the last two years.

    Everything is so chic, but especially love the green, navy and brown capsules.

  11. Vivienne - here's a packing/wardrobe challenge: How to pack/wardrobe plan for 6 weeks in China! My husband will be a visiting professor this summer in Nanjing, China! It will be very hot. I am a young 58 (5'7", 123 lbs) I'm thinking light, easy care dresses, skirts, tops? Help! Thanks! Di

  12. Would a more traditional red also work with navy or would it be too nautical/flag-like?

  13. Do you have a "contact us" area on your website so I can send you an email regarding in home consultations?
