Love for LLBEAN
Recently I found myself searching for some All American Basics. I was craving really comfortable (non glam) flannel PJ’s, a good old traditional boat neck shirt and a classic cardigan with no frills. I looked around at all my shopping go to’s, disappointed one after another.
Finally one night, cozied up and swimming once again in a pair of Alex’s flannels (it’s what I do when La Perla isn’t calling) I found myself dreaming of Christmas mornings. I would wake up to find that perfect classic red flannel pajama set, perfectly wrapped under the Christmas tree. Where had Santa found them? They always fit so perfectly and never failed to keep me warm even on the coldest Northern New York snowy ice-stormed-in nights. Ah yes, thank you Santa and LL BEAN.
Somewhere between Dancing with the Stars and American Idol I jumped on the LL BEAN website, waiting to find poor fitting old lady clothes. To my wonderful surprise and expedited shipping I have been blessed with classic, All American clothing and even at a very economical price. What was I thinking, looking on Barneys.com?
I have now over shopped for this summer and fall but, what I’ve come to realize is that there’s a reason classic brands have survived when so many have fallen. They’re reliable, comfortable, and never go out of fashion.
Here’s what my friends can plan on seeing me in this summer……. aside from a JCrew Bikini and a few Victoria Secret beach dresses, this will be about it.
