I saw your show today and love the new collection.   I first came to know the LC designs in the 80's.  I loved it then and still love it today.   I was delighted when I found her on QVC.   Believe it or not I still have and wear a  "Liz" red wool blazer that I bought many many years ago.  When you take care of your quality clothes they will serve you for years.  [I am 70 but still love to dress current and stylish for my age.  Thanks to several years of Philosophy and Wen people think I am about 60.] I wear it about 8 months a year and I will wear it again when cool evenings arrive.  The new prices may be higher but I am willing to pay for beautiful clothes.   As Lisa R always said "cost per wear".   Will love seeing/feeling the new fabrics.  My closet does  not need any more "liquid", etc that hangs there unworn.  Readjusting my budget to make room for new purchases to wear with my current LC wardrobe.  Can't wait for next Wednesday. Will begin cleaning out my closet, taking things to donation bins and get ready for new LC.  Thank you for your beautiful blogs.   Many of us do not do Twitter and Facebook so we miss out on the many communications with QVC.    ;-)
