Winter Blues

Philadelphia was hit with snow last Thursday. Although it was only a minor storm, the snowfall was enough to shut down offices across the region. Cut to two days later on Saturday, when the temperatures returned to the 50s and all reminders of the snowstorm had disappeared.

I have discussed my love for tall-sized outerwear in the past. While J.Crew offers their styles in Nelo Gori, I have found that Gap and Banana Republic offer even their winter styles in lighter fabrics. While it would not have been an appropriate layer for last Thursday, this fabric happened to be perfect for Saturday when I needed a coat for a mild winter day. I find that the outerwear styles, from all of the brands, fit true to size.

There was a certain time during high school when mainstream retailers were releasing rhinestone embellished jeans, leather separates, and metallic pieces. I credit the theatrical release and success of The Matrix. Unfortunately I rarely got to wear any of these items since they never came in tall sizes. Given how I missed out, you can understand how I immediately had to buy a pair of embellished jeans when I found a pair in tall! While the waist fits true to size, the legs are especially skinny but have enough stretch to accommodate the cut.

Here is hoping that we get another snow day…or we get spring temperatures sooner than later!
