“THE BIG DEAL, RHUBARB & CLOVE”

bg

………………..Dear Friends, I see no reason why I should hold back on letting you know what is coming in Dec. since it is the last garment of the year, and I know many of you would like to plan ahead………On December 12th at 9:00pm, on the QVC2 channel, I will be presenting my last BIG DEAL of the season………………A297877 is the style number of the WHISPER KNIT, SWING SWEATER with the COWL NECK……..I will say that this was a customer request, and I think the sweater came out fabulously! It is made in my medium weight ENR WK. This sweater is all about the COWL….It’s the make or break detail, and I think it came out beautifully. The cowl is ribbed which gives it that LUSH DRAPE, and wonderful shaping……It’s not wimpy at all, and once you set it as you like….it will stay in place. On super cold days wear it up…..ALMOST like a hood for added protection wrapped around your neck. You already know the fit of the SWING BODY. There is really little difference between this and the others made in the med. weight……The colors are RHUBARB……a delicious raspberry-ish shade……………….and CLOVE…..It is not as dark as my Dark Olive, but has a rich saturated vegetable dye earthiness…like beautiful spinach!…In the photos I paired the Rhubarb with a pair of jeans, [also looks great with black, navy, grey and the new port or blackberry pant], and I paired the Clove sweater with my slim Ponte pant, A265615 in olive. They aren’t a match, but blend beautifully…..Again, all of the color pants mentioned plus the Dark Umber will look great with Clove, and I would guess many more……..I love mixing jewelry. It gives the wearer a distinctive creative appearance…….This time I mixed the new PINK MIST FLORAL and CRACKLE BEAD necklace, J350152 [already getting great reviews], with the PERFECTLY PINK SPIRIT NECKLACE, J350153……For the Clove I mixed the Floral necklace in AQUA MIST with the DESERT SAND Spirit necklace…….You should be able to get everything in time for Christmas!………The berets are from my collection that I have acquired over the years, and are not avail……I got the olive in Paris on the Rue de Rivoli in one of the souvenir shops…….so if you’re planning a trip to Paris take a walk along the street. There are lots of shops and most have berets in all kinds of colors……………………………………..Happy Holidays………………………..much Love………………………….Louis

“THE BIG DEAL, STEEL GREY & BLACK”

bg2

………………………………….The last two colors being offered in The BIG DEAL COWL SWEATER are……………………STEEL GREY….and….BLACK…………….Many of you have already purchased the STEEL GREY SUPER PONTE SLIM PANT….A297868, in anticipation of this Cowl sweater coming up…..Sizes are already broken!……..I know you are already asking the question………”how MANY BLACK SWEATERS can I own????”….My answer is….ONE MORE! Really this is too fabulous to pass up…..With black or indigo jeans, a long slim skirt, dress pants, a pencil skirt or any leather or suede bottom…..even a sequin skirt…..you will look fabulous…..and SLIM…..ALL the attention is brought to the face with the face framing cowl, and black head to toe….well what’s to say…..there is NOTHING better……….I love the INDIA pendant, J350150, on this background of black, but the pendant would look equally striking on the Rhubarb or Clove!……………On the Steel Grey sweater I have the floral necklace in Lilac Mist and the Storm Grey Spirit necklace…….a wonderfully unexpected combination…..The grey is a very frequently requested color, and it’s a beautiful dark grey…..The grey beret is from JEDRZEJKO on ebay or direct from the manufacturer. They are from Poland so it might be quicker from ebay!…………………………………………………………………………..

…………………………………………HAPPY HAPPY HOLIDAYS!……………………….enjoy…………………….much Love…………………………Louis

“SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS”

TN3

……………………..The WHISPER KNIT SCARF is definitely one of my FAVORITE things!!!……A295909 is the style number…..I have to confess….I don’t only make this scarf for you……I make it for me too! It is the most comfortable scarf I own……and I own a lot. I have them in cashmere….soft but hot, I have them in Alpaca….pretty but after a while itchy…..I have them in wool challis, silk paisley prints reversing to cashmere, all silk, cotton.etc etc etc……..I still like the Whisper Knit the best, and I know a lot of you do too…….Fair warning…..the GREY is on wait list. Only the PARADISE RED and WINTER WHITE are still avail. I think the Winter White scarf with a black over coat or black leather jacket for your husband or son would make the perfect Christmas gift. One of the reviewers already purchased the Red for her son’s girlfriend………perfect……no size to worry about and everyone loves red…..and PARADISE RED is special……………………..Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Jac and I placed out orders for Christmas gifts as soon as they were avail on QVC………Don’t wait for the last minute. We always get extras….you never know who you may want to gift at the last minute!……………………………………….Happy Holidays……………………..much Love…………………….Louis

Boot Cut Pant petite

As many of you know the Super Ponte Boot Cut pant is now going to be avail in a petite length starting the beginning of next year. I know you all want to know what the inseam will be….. The regular length will remain with a 32″ inseam and the petite will be 29″……..QVC does a 3″ grade. That is “their” standard formula…..A boot cut pant should always be longer than a straight leg or slim leg pant, so I think this will work for most. Sorry to my super tall ladies, but “they” don’t buy Talls from me, so 32 is the best I can do…………..enjoy……much Love…….Louis

“THE FLORAL & CRACKLE BEAD NECKLACE & EARRING”

…………………………J350152 is the style number of the Floral and Bead necklace set.

I’d love to hear from those of you who have received it……………..enjoy…………….Louis

“THE PETITE PANT”

……………………..A298447, is the new PETITE SLIM LEG pant. It is still avail. in the……BLACK………STEEL GREY………..and BLACKBERRY, almost in all sizes. The regular length version of this pant is almost sold out. I was surprised to see the petite still avail. since my petite customers are always requesting a petite length. I would appreciate some feed back from my petite customers who have purchased the pant…..I want to make sure I’m meeting your needs as we have many petite bottoms planned for the future…………….thanks………………Louis

“THE FLORAL & CRACKLE BEAD NECKLACE”

flower5 flower4 flower3

………………………The FLORAL & CRACKLE BEAD NECKLACE & EARRING SET…….J350152………….is now avail. to order. It’s a wonderfully feminine and delicate piece, but it’s no fading flower. It makes a beautiful statement whether worn long or doubled. The floral station has an Art Nouveau quality, and there is a whole UNIVERSE within each crackle bead ………………A lovely Holiday present too….and no fit to worry about……………….enjoy…………….much Love………………………Louis

“THE NEW SUPER PONTE SLIM PANT”

blackberry1

……………………..Aren’t photos of a pant hanging from a hanger just the best?#*@%! That’s why I never shoot pants on their own, but I felt these pants deserved a try!…………This is my NEW SUPER PONTE “SLIM” PANT……………..It will be avail in a regular length of 30 inches and a petite length of 27 inches…………Many of you already know the fabric well. It is the same as my Super Ponte Boot Cut Pant. This is a combination of two of my best selling pants…..the SP Boot Cut, A268216 and the lighter Ponte Slim pant, A265515, that so many of you love……….The idea behind this pant was to use the Super Ponte fabric of the Boot Cut combined with the silhouette of the Slim Pant……….Both of the previous mentioned pants are almost the same design at the top with the CONTOUR waist band….the narrow ELASTIC, and the darts that start at the waist band and slant down to the side seam…..giving the hip a smooth shape……….The leg of the new pant is very similar to the slim pant…..but….the new pant has a slightly larger leg opening, and the new pant is slightly longer……..This pant is numerically sized, so what ever size you are now buying in the slim pant and the boot cut pant should be perfect…………..The colors are…………..BLACK………………BLACKBERRY………………STEEL GREY [which is much darker then SMOKE]……With the perfect combination of the Super Ponte Fabric and the Slim silhouette, I hope this will soon become a new favorite!…..A297868 is the reg. length…..A297874 is the petite length….I will be showing these pants this Friday Nov. 3rd, on the Morning Show, starting at 7:00am…………………….enjoy………………..much Love……………….Louis
