Best of Cheap Week

All this week, WWD has been running a fun series of articles called Cheap Week. Let’s face it, “Never before has it been so chic to be cheap.” The high low combination is on everyone’s fashion plate. The big question of course is whether the nature of shopping in America has changed for good or whether this is just a temporary blip due to current economic pressures.…

My How Things Have Changed

I saw an article last week by Kim Friday (senior fashion editor, sportswear, WWD) entitled 9 Right Now: Collegiate Favorites (Campus-worthy classics go luxe). Several things interested me about this piece. Firstly, I would have been thrilled to have any of these items in school – when I first went to college, at least where I was, girls wouldn’t have been caught dead in anything but baggy pants.…

Summer Breeze

I had always wanted to build a pool and pool house at our former home. We downsized and moved next door (yes, exactly next door) 3-1/2 years ago when my third was about to go off to boarding school and we realized we didn’t need the size and maintenance of such a large house.…

New Talent at Talbots

Talbots is not normally on my radar but I somehow stumbled on their fall catalogue and was surprisingly impressed. They are clearly trying to tone up their image. There are quite a few adorable items with great price points – could be just the thing to fill in some holes in your fall wardrobe without breaking the bank.…

Nantucket is a shopper’s heaven. There is more quality shopping here within a small area than most places I can think of. I have focussed on not only personal favorites but traditional Nantucket stores that have strong ties to the island.…

Nantucket Style

I’ve been coming to Nantucket for over 25 years and even though it is more crowded and built up than ever, it is still an island paradise. Thirty miles out to sea, it is a small place, only 3-1/2 miles wide by 14 miles long with over 40% of the land protected by the Land Trust.…
