Saving your sweaters

October 13, 2015

If you live anywhere, except maybe on the equator or in the Caribbean, you probably have a array of different types of sweaters in your wardrobe. From chunky knits, soft cashmere, fluffy angora, to traditional wool, you need them all when the weather turns chilly.

Like me, you must have a few sweaters that you just can't bear to part with. Two in particular come to mind. A gray cashmere button-down, sleeveless, cape style sweater that I bought at MaxMara in Italy a few years ago. And, a black, open collared wool vest, with dubious origins and no tags, that hits mid-thigh. Perhaps a thrift-store find? It's been so long I don't remember. I wear it all fall layered over a long sleeve scoop neck Adea tee.

Every fall is the same process. I take my sweaters out of storage, inspect them and take stock. Almost always I notice the little balls under the arms or on the side where I hold my bag. Were those pills there when I put them away in the spring? Or did I just not notice them in my haste to forget winter?

Time to save my sweaters. This article on Fashionista.com takes about an electric sweater shaver. Martha Stewart suggests using small scissors or a razor blade to get rid of the dreaded fuzzy balls. There's also a mention of a sweater comb. I think I'll start with small cuticle scissors and see how it goes.

Has anyone had success with one method in particular?

Artificial Intelligence Enters Fashion

I first wrote about “Stitch Fix” for ADEA in a blog titled “Tech Savvy Females Reign” that appeared on March 14, 2018.

For the record, I do not remember the titles of all the ADEA blogs I’ve written and when they appeared. So I have a bright red three-hole binder to help me keep track of the month, year and headline of each blog.

The Super-talented Barefoot Contessa

April 03, 2019

I have been watching domestic goddess, Ina Garten, create mouth-watering delicacies on her cooking show forever. Now, it seems, we are in a new era where shows such as, “The World’s Worst Cook” or “How to Beat So-and-So in X-Minutes” reign supreme. Obviously this type of scheduling is geared to an audience that has no interest in watching a cook in the kitchen who whips up several superb dishes for a memorable lunch or dinner. I only catch The Barefoot Contessa now by accident: early mornings on days I can never remember.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
