“THE WHITE & BLACK EYELET SHIRT JACKET”

bread1

 

……………….I think this EMBROIDERED EYELET SHIRT/JACKET, A265616,  just may become a go to piece………..The fabric is the key here….It’s 100% cotton, but it’s the embroidery that tells the tale……..The more stitch count to the embroidered openwork the more costly the fabric, and this shirt has tons of open work and  emb. There is an English female designer who has also done an emb. eyelet shirt this year in an almost exact pattern……really I couldn’t tell the difference in the fabric. However, the price of her shirt and mine are oceans apart. The silhouette is simple. A classic straight body with a turn back 3/4 length sleeve. The shirt collar has a separate stand so it’s easy to flip up for a little attitude. There are small side slits. The length is approx.25 inches for the size 6…..Yes, it is numerically sized…… Since you will have to wear a tank or something under it…I prefer it left unbuttoned. This a a terrific shirt to pop a color under such as mt Petrl blue tank shown above. This shirt can work for anyone’s life style, and can be worn for many occasions or none at all. This is one of those simple but stylish timeless pieces that will come in very handy when you want a little something to cover your arms. Wear it over separates or a little dress……..The colors are BLACK or WHITE……a very easy decision…………………………..enjoy………………..much Love…………………………………Louis

“THE BLACK WK BOLERO”

slim pant6

 

…………………………….The WK BOLERO, A265614………..in BLACK……….is an ESSENTIAL….I think one of the comments I hear many times from women is…….”I need something to cover my arms”…..Is that not true?I think this Bolero is the perfect answer to that question……If you recognize this Bolero that is because this is very similar to a piece that I have done before. I felt it was time to bring it back. With all of the tanks, various sleeveless tops and dresses it is essential to own these types of garments as a little cover up. For me it really has nothing to do with whether you have firm arms or not. For me….it’s about the “LOOK” and what it adds to the outfit. Of course there is a practical side to wearing this bolero, and that’s comfort. We have all experienced going from the summer heat and entering a refrigerator like room. Even sitting in an air conditioned car can require something to cover your arms. You may live in the hottest most humid climate, but you still experience the chill of an over air conditioned environment.

The bolero is made in the ENR construction and is approx. 17 inches long…..which is a little longer than the original. It has a single button at the neck. Wear it mixed….wear it matched….wear it with separates or dresses, casual or dressed up…..it’s a piece that works with everything. Above, from left to right: The Black Bolero with the A255148 TANK….one of my most favorite pieces, and for those of you who are looking for something different in a tank, and a little more fashion forward…this is it. The color is DEEP PINK. On the bottom a BLACK WK SKIRT. You have a few choices in the WK, and two of them are A237412, and A253411. They are avail in different sizes so check them out. I love the idea of an all WK SOFT UNCONVENTIONAL SUIT. The Ivory RIBBED BOTTOM TANK, A232345 is next, and this may be one of my most popular tanks ever. It’s been reordered twice and these are the last quantities. ….Next is the same tank in Black with the ZIG ZAG SKIRT, A265559. Those of you who have tried this skirt got it home and LOVE it. Notice how the Rib bottom tank is long enough to cover the hips…..How the Black Bolero and the longer Black Tank ELONGATES…..Wearing it like this, anyone can wear this skirt successfully…all you have to do is try….you may surprise yourself. I have accessories galore that will work with this Bolero and there are just a few in the photos….The CLUSTER JET NECKLACE, J317112….the REVERSIBLE CROSS IN GUNMETAL with JET or BLACK CRYSTALS, J317110…..the 72 inch JET FACETED BEAD NECKLACE, J284043, a must have in every wardrobe….. J291538, the JET DROP EARRING, which has sold out in clear and only a few remain in the black Jet….. J291535, the BLACK JET SPACED BEAD NECKLACE….delicate with a presence…..and perfect for layering. Not shown is J291536, the BLACK JET FACETED BEAD STRETCH BRACELET….great on it’s own….doubled or mixed with other bracelets………..Also just avail. the new WATERFALL NECKLACE & EARRING SET in the BLACK, WHITE and BLUE………….and the FROSTED BEAD NECKLACES & EARRING SET in PINK and AQUA. That my friends is a whole lot of choices…………………and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!……………………………………………………………………

“THE LIGHT KHAKI SLIM PANT”

slim pant1

 

………………………………..The new SLIM PANT, A265615, has already been posted and many of you have already bought, received…..and come back for more……and I’m not even showing it until next month on June 4th [TWO HOURS]!] I have to say….if this is a new QVC policy of posting the clothes well before they air I’m all for it. It gives those of you who are really interested the opportunity to buy early….get it home to see how it fits, and still gives you enough time to exchange for another size or add more colors before the frenzy of show time. Have you noticed, or am I mistaken, that complaints about not being able to get things has been diminished since the Q has been posting early…..that and their increased inventory I think have calmed the waters…………………Since these pants have been posted on the Linea site, and many have received them, I see no reason to hold the sneak peeks any longer. Everything you need to know about the details is posted on the site, so I’ll tell you what is not posted. This a pull on ankle pant…..the length is the QVC STANDARD…..this is not arbitrary. If you don’t like the length that is a discussion you must take on with the QVC Fit and Production team……….I have chosen the …..LIGHT KHAKI …… as the first photo. I think it is a marvelous Spring/Summer color, and in the warmer climates a year long color…..I think it’s a fabulous neutral and can be a replacement for white……It’s not too yellow or too gray…It is a very clean fresh beige….The FABRIC is new to Linea. It is a lighter weight Poly/ Rayon/Span Knit, and when I say lighter I mean in comparison to the Super Ponte or the regular Ponte knits I have used in the past. As I have said, I liken it to the Moss Crepe on steroids. The surface of the fabric is clean and almost smooth to the touch……The inside is silky…..The clean surface enables this pant to go DRESSY or CASUAL. Certainly the care instructions and comfort of the pant make this an ideal travel pant……………..The Light Khaki is perfect to wear with black , navy, charcoal….. really all dark colors….. as it is with softer paler colors such as the SEA FOAM above. The CARDIGAN, A255669 in the FLECKED Sea Foam knit is on clearance, and is almost sold out, but the SHORT SLEEVE V-NECK, A233942 is still avail. The CINNAMON, CHARCOAL and NATURAL are avail also, and if there was ever a light weight summer knit top and cardigan….this is it…………..The AQUA FROSTED DROP NECKLACE, J321803 coming soon, and the DEMI hoop, J270391, or GOLD BALL STUD EARRING, J317109 is all you need to make a soft yet bold statement……………………………………………………………………………………………..enjoy…………. much Love…………………..Louis

“THE BLACK SLIM PANT”

…………………………….I really don’t know when you ever have enough different styles of pants in………..BLACK…………. The FIT, the FABRIC, the SILHOUETTE, the COMFORT and the EASY CARE are all reasons to add this one to your arsenal! A slim leg pant is ideal with the myriad of tunics avail to you. However….. there is nothing slimmer when the BLACK PANT is paired with a slim sweater and a match cardigan……..such as the BLACK WK SLEEVELESS MOCK NECK, A233947, or the WK V-NECK TANK, A233942, all shown above, and the matching BLACK WK CARDIGAN, A233940………………………sophisticated, chic and timeless…..To quote “The Devil wears PRADA”….”this is not arbitrary”……..Add your PINK FROSTED BEAD NECKLACE & EARRING SET, and you have given this timeless look a contemporary edge……………..You certainly can’t beat the WHITE WING COLLAR SHIRT, A259103, belted or not, accessorized or not, as THE ALL AMERICAN LOOK worn with a slim ankle pant…..thank you Audrey…………………………………………………………………………………enjoy……………………much Love………………………..Louis

THE NAVY SLIM PANT”

slim pant4

 

……………………………..We all know you can’t wear black pants every day of your lives……though some of you wouldn’t mind…..and may do……..but……..a good dark deep NAVY pant is just as ESSENTIAL. I was the first to bring this very dark navy to QVC. I remember the “discussion” I had with my buyers at the time…..”but on air it will look black, they won’t be able to tell the difference”……my retort….”but in life they will!” It was and still is a successful color, and my navy has become a standard. I know you all know the many ways you can wear a navy pant….so I chose the most classic…….again, the white shirt, but this time accessorized with the SCHOOL OF FISH NECKLACE, J321128, an instant collectors item, the Fish Pendant, J278128, and the Linea Signature Earring, J320884, an open airy design that can work with anything…………………You must give the SLIM PANT a try if you haven’t…..You may be pleasantly surprised…………………….enjoy………………….much Love……………………..Louis

***************THE PINK FROSTED BEADS***************

frosted beads1

 

……………………………………How beautiful are these PINK FROSTED DROPS!……………………….TRANSLUCENT ORGANIC BEADS……..the look of BEACH GLASS…..where years of tumbling in the ocean has buffed all of the jagged and rough edges…..leaving behind smooth and tactile pieces of glass…..amazing you by mother nature’s work……These resin pieces capture the look wonderfully. There are two rows of pale golden beads from which hang these frosted drops. You can see in the photographs how translucent they are which gives them a weight-less look. There is an extender chain which allows you to wear them where they are most comfortable. The two small photos at the upper right shows the necklace at it shortest and longest length…..You can see where they rest on the tank’s neckline…..With the necklace you will receive a MATCHING EARRING…..pierced only…..I think it’s the perfect size…..not too big but not too small……It still has a presence, but doesn’t compete with the necklace. The drop of the earring is smaller in size then the drop of the necklace. You will enjoy wearing the earrings alone with many other things….. The color of this necklace is …..PINK, but it is not Perfectly Pink……It almost has a tint of lavender……It’s unique in its’ beauty…….This is a STATEMENT NECKLACE, and is very SPECIAL……..With all statement necklaces, and they are not for everyone, nor should they be……This is for those of you who enjoy wearing bold pieces….The clothing you wear is a background for the jewelry to show at its’ best….Instead of picking the accessories to go with the outfit…..with a piece like this you select the clothes to go with the necklace…..the simpler the better…..The necklace is the focal point and STATEMENT……..This is the type of necklace you notice a woman wearing in a restaurant…..from across the room, and you wonder….”where did she get that!”……This is the type of necklace…..that when YOU wear it….will bring all of the attention your way………..The style number is J321803, and it will be avail the end of May early June………………………………………………..enjoy………….much Love…………………………….Louis
