Infinite In The Finite

If spring is when nature surges back to life, then fall is when our wardrobes do. After a season held in suspense by heat we begin to return to shorter, busier days and more interesting styles. It begins with cardigans and light jackets, sleeves lengthening while legs find covering in tights and the layers just add in time with coats and mittens and scarves and hats--and it all ends inappropriately with silly heels and sparkly dresses completely wrong for the weather, but quite festive for holiday parties. I, like many others, do love this season. An opportunity to re-invent or at least re-invigorate your wardrobe with new color combinations, interesting silhouettes, or merely piling on the coziest knits to be found--fall is when I feel I have more options in getting dressed. These tights or those knee socks? This sweater with that dress, or a jacket under coat--and which scarf shall I throw on top? There's just an infinite variety of options that seem to emerge from a finite wardrobe. I'm already wearing this old wool cardigan I've had since high school around like a second skin. With new glam heels and a pretty patterned dress, the cardigan adds that mix of old and familiar to the new in my closet.

I love the look of that dress, but I'm wondering what you think about the quality. A store in my neighborhood started carrying Lauren Moffatt recently, and I went, excitedly, to check some of it out (I live in Canada and it can be hard to find brands like LM, Dear Creatures, Family Affairs, etc in stores). Normally her pieces would be out of my price range but I thought it might be worth investing in one or two. I have to say, I found the quality pretty terrible given what she is charging. The design is great and she uses high quality fabrics like silk and merino wool, but I was unwilling to pay $300 for a poorly constructed sweater. Just my opinion though. The dress looks great on you and I do love that pattern.

@Christina, I don't know about her sweaters as I don't have any of those. The dresses I have from her are nicely constructed, but they do run large--I've had to get them all tailored. This dress is very lightweight, but the details are well-done. Another dress I have from her is fully lined. So, I don't know really, but I've been pleased with the quality of pieces I have, but it's a limited sample.

I love mixing old and new too. The gold heels are such a fun pop to this outfit and your dress is absolutely adorable. That cardigan looks super comfy too. I can see why it has stuck around so long!
