    Land’s End Does it Right

    Recently I received a Land’s End catalog in the mail. I ordered from Land’s End frequently in the ’90s. As I’ve said before, my style and tastes have changed the last decade. I got out of the habit of ordering. The catalogs stopped arriving and Land’s End was not on my shopping radar.

    I have always appreciated the superb quality and excellent customer service they provided. From coats to luggage, Land’s End features some amazing products and are known for their classic styles and reasonable prices.

    As I thumbed through their catalog, the Ponte Knit selections caught my eye and I just had to share! I liked the way they described this awesome fabric I’ve written about previously.

    “Get the Ponte…the knit that stands, sits and moves all day long and looks great doing it”  and “Ponte combines the polish of a woven with the comfort of a knit. In short, it’s pretty much the perfect fabric.” Thanks Land’s End for saying it so well!

    While I did not care for every piece and how they styled it online (more appealing in the catalog), here are my favorites I thought worth mentioning.

    Above: the Demi Boot Cut. I always like a good tweed pattern when I see it.  It’s an easy way to “pattern mix” because a tweed is really just a more interesting solid.

    Hairstyles: Part 2

     I continue my interview with Brenda Stanton of Nico Bella Salon in Camas, Washington. K: When doing color analysis, hair, skin and eye colors dictate what direction I go. When you make a recommendation for overall color and/or highlights do you look at skin, eyes or both? B: I look…
