Weekend…? Did we hear someone say weekend?
Despite the oh-so-sunny weather (it is almost balmy!) in The Great Midwest, The Princess needs to remember Fall is here and that means sweater weather at some point in the future. The Los Angeles Times recently ran an outstanding article about cardigan sweaters although we were somewhat surprised the ‘preppy’ word cropped up several times in the story.
“The preppy classic can be worn buttoned up or dressed down, and this season, there’s a style that fits every budget.”
One of the sweaters shown in the article was this rugby stripe by Splendid; there would be no chance of a chill for TP because this looks ever-so- snuggly.
The article also shows this cardigan by Cardigan. Really, that’s the brand name. The ‘full name’ is Cardigan New York and while it’s a relatively new label, the designer is a pro: Lynne Hiriak designed for Michael Kors and Derek Lam. Below, the Classic Cardigan by Cardigan in wool, nylon, and spandex.
We do know the brand was available at Lulu Brandt in Pasadena (stand clear everyone, Muffy Martini is probably on her way!) and you can definitely find Cardigan at Barneys and Nordstrom, along with eLuxury and Intermix online. Below, the nautical style stripe Elodie looks luscious, with a classic profile you will have for years.
The article also notes:
“For women, the cardigan is one half of the prim ‘n’ preppy twinset — a lightweight addition to any outfit and an easy way to add polish to any look.”
Are you feeling “prim” when you have on a cardigan? Do tell, we are simply dying to know.
Now it is time for a quick look at some fabulous fundraisers as part of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness movement.
Polo Ralph Lauren has loads of tee shirts and other goodies in their Pink Pony line of merchandise. Ten percent of proceeds from these products go to the Pink Pony Fund. “With a focus on breast cancer, Pink Pony supports programs for early diagnosis, education, treatment and research.”
10% of proceeds from Pink Collection sales go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Several items from the line are available at Lacoste’s website, including this darling tote.
Our favorite photo by Miss Nitrolicious was this one of the massive pink ribbon.
The next three days are stuffed full of functions, so we must fly and try to get organized! Do enjoy your weekend!
