  1. Love, love, love those silver capped-toes shoes. Wherever did you find them?

    1. Stuart Weitzman - they're currently on sale, still painfully expensive. But comfortable as bedroom slippers, and should last at least 10 years - my shoes from him have a very long life-span!

    2. I have a very similar Stuart Weitzman. It's the gray alligator brogue with a heel. I tried on the pair you purchased and LOVED them, but my very practical daughter said, "You have plenty of flats You should get something similar, but with a heel."

      I rarely wear heels, and love comfortable shoes...mostly Stuart Weitzman and Taryn Rose. Both brands *are* expensive, but owning a pair of heels that I can actually walk in is priceless. They're fabulous quality and do last forever.

  2. Great post! You really show how important accessories are to elevate any outfit. I went back to work this past week after a long absence and putting your good advice to use. Bought a few nice belts, a beautiful scarf and an oatmeal EF sweater to round out my wardrobe and that is it for the year.

  3. Janice, what a great week. I love your running commentary.

    Ellen, my local DSW just started carrying Taryn Rose. Still not cheap, but more affordable.

    I no longer wear "real" heels. Thanks to many years of yoga practice, my feet won't let me! So I'm always on the lookout for shoes I can really walk in..

  4. It's always fun eavesdropping on your clothes talk to yourself, Janice...I love these What I Wore posts. Do you need to replace your discarded tweed jacket with a silver cardigan or pale gray cashmere turtleneck to make more of an event of your wondrous silver-toed shoes?

  7. These are my favorite posts of yours. I love seeing what you really wear. Keep these coming! Also, would you identify the black/gray Hermes scarf?

    1. I think it's called Jardin des Metamorphoses - if you can find any close up pictures of it, the design is of vines and plants that have hidden animals in them. Sometime I'll try to talk Belovedest into a couple of detail photos of it.

  8. I enjoy and learn from these WIW posts too - the reasoning and the illustrations are so helpful! And of course seeing new ways to put a week's outfits together from the home collection. Excellent topic, Janice, thank you.
