Happy Friday (or Saturday) and welcome back to me!! Haha!! I think that I told you that Bill had foot surgery in September and I was on nurse duty. Then we made two trips to Arkansas to meet and then spend some time with our new grandson, Will. So I am not sure what has happened to my ability to write a blog or keep up with anything. I can’t use Bill for an excuse any more and I have plenty of photos to post. I will say that I have been blessed to be working a lot with my awesome clients getting their closets and wardrobes ready for fall. I have also had some Kim Dawson bookings and then we had out of town company. Lots of fun shopping in the design district trying to finish my living room with my friend Roxie. Enough with the excuses. I do need to have a block of time to focus and it is finally coming together today!! We will see what you think of The Luxe Collection from J.Mclaughlin which is only available in stores. You know that I am a huge fan of J.McLaughlin and love shopping in the store at Preston Center East. They have an amazing selection of fall basics and then some really snazzy fun fashion forward pieces as well. Stay tuned for Fall Fashion Updates.
THE LUXE COLLECTION FROM J.MCLAUGHLIN
I have to tell you that this luxe collection is just what it says – luxurious!!! The sweaters that I am wearing are cashmere and just feel so fabulous especially since we had temperatures in the 20’s this week. I always love grey any time of year and this fringe cardigan is so versatile. Love the mock turtleneck and since these are only available in the stores I have linked some similar sweaters here and here. I can’t tell you how soft these faux leather leggings are and they fit so well and are like a jean at the top. I now own these fabulous suede knee high boots. I have been so into booties lately that I have not been thinking about other styles. I love the block heel and wider leg so you can easily fit your skinny jeans or leggings in for a smooth look. They are so comfy too.
There are so many things I love about mixing textures. Here you have cashmere, suede and faux leather. Even though I am wearing solids there is a lot of definition in each piece. Don’t you love that this sweater is long enough to cover your back side. It can be worn open or belted. If you are in Dallas stop by the J.McLaughlin store in Preston Center East and ask for the manager, Christy Callahan. She is amazing.
Of course the day I finally decided to get back in the swing I have been having technical difficulties with my WordPress. I am not at all tech savvy and have to depend on so many people to help me. It’s ridiculous!! So there is no telling when this will get posted. I hope to be more consistent moving forward and I want to tell each and every one of you how much I appreciate your reading my blogs. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. I love your comments. Happy Thanksgiving Season. I am thankful for you. XO Debby
