All of the new spring fashions are starting to show up on blogs and on retailer emails. I really do not need any new clothes but I can never resist the siren song of the new spring line. I'd like to write a modern day version of The Odyssey where Penelope, on her way back home to Odysseus, is tempted by offerings from J. Crew and Saks. After all of those years of weaving and unweaving the same damned piece, fresh textiles would surely lure her up on the rocks.
Right now this is the soft music calling me ashore. It's the Lady Jacket with Liberty Trim by J Crew and I think it's simply divine. It's 20% off right now and in the words of a any QVC host worth her salt, Girls, run to the phone... I think I've found where to spend my birthday money!
