stepping out

February 11, 2022

I very nearly bought a housecoat yesterday. It was a full length cable knit cardigan, fashioned from a lovely violet-grey alpaca. The only reason why I didn’t snap it up on the spot is because I knew I would never leave the house again. It’s rare to find something that’s as cozy as a blanket, and chic enough to entertain Elsa Maxwell in. But after close to two years of comfort dressing, any new purchases have to get me out the house not keep me in it. My Mum sent me two “fancy” blouses for Christmas that I can’t quite muster the brio to wear yet, but a baby step might be this striped sweater with matching velvet bib collar. It’s very Sonia Rykiel, and looks demure and cozy, with a suggestion of play. For now, that feels about right.
