The Palm Fronds are here!

As many of you know the Palm Frond short necklace and earrings have arrived. The long one shouldn’t  be far behind. The pictures aren’t too wonderful as many of you have pointed out, and if someone doesn’t look at my blog and see the sneak peeks they may wonder why they are more expensive than other Linea pieces………these pieces are very labor intensive, and that costs money. Each frond is a separate piece and then they are all put together, so each frond is totally articulated and have movement similar to the fish pendant. The necklace has five fronds! The original had seven and was approx. $250 in 1992, so I think these are very fairly priced for what they are. There weren’t many made so I hope those of you who truly want them……get them…….I know when you receive them you will fall in love with them……..be sure the compliments will  come.

“THE CHILI PEPPER KIMONO CARDIGAN”

May show 201414

……………………………CHILI PEPPER…………HOT & SASSY…………Why has this color become so popular?? I believe…..because it works for so many women…..warms and surprisingly COOLS alike. I think it is the depth and richness of the color that works with so many skin types……It also isn’t a glaring red. It is toned down, so even the most conservative feel comfortable wearing this color……..However, conservative it is not!. Paired with the Chili Pepper ENR Tank, A253408, and the Chili Pepper Linen blend trouser…..makes it appropriate for all and any occasion…..Change the linen pant with the CHILI PEPPER BOHO SKIRT, A70208……..HOT & SASSY!………This is also a wonderful accent color to wear all year long……with navy, black, walnut and charcoal grey……..Winter, Fall, Spring and Summer……………you can’t go wrong………………………..scroll down………………………………..

As you can see from the photos above it is a beautiful watercolor…..color……..a color that is hard to describe, but a picture is worth a thousand words………….This is an ACCENT COLOR……there are no SEA FOAM clothes coming to match…..but, I am sure it works with so many things you already own, and if it doesn’t I am offering you plenty of options to go with it…..all you need is a little imagination………….Above, I took the TWIG LINEN PANT, which is avail in size 8 petite only, and paired it with the LATTE SHORT SLEEVE CARDIGAN, A253409…..and accented the pieces with the Sea Foam tank……adding the BLUE MIST PEARLS, J264035…..and you have a wonderfully sophisticated outfit that looks like you weren’t trying too hard….which is something you always want to achieve when putting clothes together…….The total look is SOFT, FEMININE and CHIC………………With a change of cardigans…..in this case the reorder FLORAL CARDIGAN, A233856, in the new BLACK combination, and the addition of the new BLACK COTTON SATEEN PANT, A254640, coming in MAY…..you have a totally different look with the SEA FOAM TANK………….FYI….the BLACK LINEN TWEED PANT also looks INCREDIBLE with the floral cardigan and tank………a softer more relaxed look….and a wonderful combination of colors and TEXTURES…….It certainly says….”This woman knows what she is doing”…………………….scroll down………………………………………….enjoy………much Love…………………………………………………………..Louis

“THE SILVER GRAY FLECKED TANK”

May show 20141

The second NEW COLOR I am offering to you in the FLECKED TANK, A224278, is……………………..SILVER GRAY…………………..I have already presented this to you on the last show, worn by Jac under the the PEWTER SUIT. We have discussed many times the difficulty, for some, of wearing different shades of gray…………………This is a color I think the majority of you can wear. The slight sheen of the yarn, like silk, and the delicate flecks of black give it life that many other fabrics don’t possess………….I, like many of you, love the COOLING EFFECT of SILVER GRAY and WHITE………….Above, I have the CLASSIC WK CARDIGAN, A233940, now avail. in WHITE, with the WHITE COTTON SATEEN PANT, A254640, coming in May………….That is  one fabulous way to look this summer…..and the WHITES ALL WORK TOGETHER……not an easy feat!………….For a touch more serious, and maybe more office appropriate, I have also paired the cardigan and the SILVER GRAY TANK with the new PEWTER CREPE PANT, A253576…………….or for my FEATHER JERSEY LOVERS…..the SMOKE MAXI SKIRT, A233970, in the regular length, and A233971 in the petite length………..all you need is a pair of SILVER SANDALS to keep it all COOL!……………………Of course the jewelry is all LINEA…………The CLEAR 72 inch glass beads, J284043, which are at the moment sold out…..The station classic necklace with the emerald cut clear stones, and silver metal and silver pearls scattered through out, J287999…………FYI, the pink combination of this necklace has been reordered and I believe one of the LINEA LADIES received an e-mail saying the wait list people would get them in June. I have to be honest….we all have our favorites, and as beautiful as the pink is…..my favorite is the CLEAR with silver, and I’m a little surprise it’s still avail, but there aren’t many left….so I’m happy about that………..To complete the………TRIFECTA………of necklaces…… is a new CLEAR GLASS FACETED BEAD necklace. It has two sizes of ROUND FACETED GLASS BEADS, suspended from a beautiful, delicate silver chain….coming in JULY…….no style number yet……….The three together are simply FANTASTIC!……..To finish the look….the CLEAR GLASS DROP EARRING, J284042……This earring goes with EVERYTHING…..if you need to shorten it…..it is easily accomplished……This is the perfect illustration of LINEA JEWELRY WARDROBE BUILDING…….

“THE NATURAL FLECKED TANK”

May show 20142

……..LAST…. but not LEAST…..is the color tank that started it all……………..NATURAL………….As I have told you many times………….every time I dye a fabric in a color…..even a color I have done before I receive new lab dips to approve, and inevitably the colors always come out slightly different……..that too is the case with the natural tank. I really didn’t have to mention it, but if you own the original and wanted to get a second, they will be slightly different………it’s always better to be up front, and to let you know what you are getting before hand. It is STILL a WONDERFUL NEUTRAL color, and will go with so many things you own………Above, I have chosen to show it with the BLACK WK KIMONO OPEN FRONT CARDIGAN, A233950, and the NEW BLACK ENR WK SKIRT, A253411, which is the same length as the classic acrylic wool ENR pencil skirt. This WK pencil skirt is an ESSENTIAL which is a must have……………Why did I choose a black outfit to high light this NATURAL TANK…..because, 95% of you wear black, and it can be more interesting to wear this FLECKED tank than a solid tank all the time………..it gives depth and interest to what you are wearing……………..the jewelry is all from my collection, and sorry it  is not avail…….enjoy…………………..much Love…………………………………Louis
