Sigh… L.L.Bean clothing is NOT frumpy. It can be frumpy, but so can clothing from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Frumpy is the person, and the way things are worn, not the garments themselves. Some accessories, some attitude, some good posture, and these clothes will look as chic as anything that costs 10 times as much. Make your own style! UPDATE: I welcome all comments. You don’t have to love what I do – it would be impossible for me to create web posts that everybody loved. But everybody IS welcome to come by here, share their opinion, read the opinions of others, have a laugh or two, pick up something to think about, and stop back another day for a post that might be more to their taste. As long as everybody stays civil, I say let the conversation continue!

“Whoa, hold everything! I can only wear warm colors…”

“Wait! I need MORE black! I only want to wear neutral colors, and it should be MOSTLY BLACK!!!”
Variation: The Mostly Black (but enough other colors to keep people from thinking you’re going Goth) Whatever’s Clean Summer Wardrobe
Whew! This is just one brand of clothing – I think it’s clear that there are virtually limitless possibilities inherent in the baker’s dozen, carefully curated and deliberately distilled.
