Re: Boat Neck

In Fashion Talk 1412032716.867

I'm with you! Although I love boatnecks, some of them are too wide for my small shoulders. I will say that Talbot's has addressed this issue in the last year or so, and their boatnecks now fit me fine. And they have a lot to choose from. The jewel neckline is one of my favorites, but they can be hard to find. Continue Reading

This Epicurious recipe for French Apple Cake looks good. It has a better proportion of fat to ingredients, I think. I haven’t tried it but plan to soon. I’ve had good results with epicurious recipes. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/cinnamon-apple-cake-10000000222502/ Here's another idea. This apple cake by Cooking Light is one of their most popular recipes. I’ve made it and it's a winner. I use butter (not margarine) and light cream cheese. It takes a bit less time in my oven. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/cinnamon-apple-cake-10000000222502/ Continue Reading

 

Re: How do you feel about FRINGE?

In Fashion Talk 1411934296.99

As little as possible. I might like a bit of fringe on a moccasin, but that's about the extent of it. Looks pretty on others. But I like clean lines on clothes. Continue Reading

 

Re: What style leg in jeans?

In Fashion Talk 1411934139.473

On 9/27/2014 twopeas said: I believe that a straight leg would be best for you. I agree. I'm a couple of inches taller than you, and the straight leg looks best on me. I like a slim straight leg best. It may be true that most shapes and heights can wear a bootcut jean, but if you don't like them, don't wear them! I'm phasing out the bootcuts in my wardrobe, because I find that I rarely wear them. I feel like there is just too much material in them, for someone my height. I don't like extra material pooling at my feet. Continue Reading

 

Re: Letting go of items that you love

In Fashion Talk 1411857655.64

I will let go of things if they look too dated, if it turns out I don't like or wear them much, or if the clothes have become shabby and worn with use. I do think into every life some perfect clothes will come. That doesn't mean they stay perfect forever. They might have been perfect for an occasion, for a season, for a time in my life. Nothing lasts forever. Continue Reading

 

Re: Do you machine wash items that say hand wash?

In Fashion Talk 1411857045.907

Kathleen, I do wash single items on the delicate cycle. I choose low water level. The cycle takes six minutes (most of it soaking time). Our washer is over 10 years old, and I haven't worn out the washer yet! Continue Reading
