Family Wednesday: Amazon Cashmere

You’re probably aware that Amazon has a bunch of its own clothing brands, but did you know that their cashmere is worth checking out? We’re featuring a cashmere sweater from Lark & Ro today, but they also have a men’s sweater line called Buttoned Down (for example, this men’s cashmere full-zip sweater). My husband just got a Buttoned Down sweater as a gift and it’s really soft — I’d say it’s comparable to cashmere that we’ve gotten from Neiman Marcus Last Call and other places. I don’t know what the Black Friday deals will be at Amazon, but if you see any on Lark & Ro cashmere in particular, go ahead and grab them. Lark & Ro 100% Cashmere, 12-Gauge 3/4 Sleeve Crewneck Cardigan

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Hope you enjoy the long weekend with your families!

Psst: Amazon’s toy deal of the day is on wooden toys from Hape, including some great marble runs, play kitchens, and more.

Accessory Tuesday: Crosby Quilted Oxford Nylon Crossbody

I’m a big fan of MZ Wallace for intelligently designed handbags — as are the readers —  and this quilted design seems lightweight but durable. It’s 13″ x 9″ x 2″, which puts it on the slightly larger side, and it looks like a great choice for a crossbody. It has the options of a chain shoulder strap, an adjustable leather crossbody strap, and an adjustable webbed strap. The bag only has one review so far at Nordstrom, but it’s very positive, and I think this would be ideal for running errands, or if you’re OK with a crossbody for work. It’s $295 (backordered, available late next month). Crosby Quilted Oxford Nylon Crossbody

Maternity Monday: Lace Maternity Dress

Ingrid & Isabel’s popular shirred maternity dress has pretty much always been available, certainly since I was pregnant, and is still available today. This is a nice holiday take on that style, and while lace can be less accessible for an office environment, this would be great if you need something for holiday parties, and in a subdued color with a cardigan over it, you could even make it work to expand your work wardrobe while you’re pregnant. It’s really affordable as well — $98 at Nordstrom — and you can wear it to baby showers, parties, and so forth. It comes in nine (!) colors and patterns and is hand washable (i.e., possibly safe for the hand-wash cycle on your machine). Ingrid & Isabel Lace Maternity Dress

Psst: Amazon’s Black Friday deal of the day for toys is on games and puzzles from Ravensburger — including the game Bugs in the Kitchen, which my 6yo likes a bunch.

Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

Tis the season, ladies: time to review every hat, scarf, muffler, glove and mitten you’ve ever bought for anyone in your family because — if you’re me — despite your best efforts to keep things organized (in Ziploc bags of course) they’ve all wound up in a tangled mass at the bottom of the closet. I just did the big hat/glove review for our family, and while I truly, truly don’t need anyMORE hats… this big bright red one just seems so happy. It’s $48 at Nordstrom, but note that there’s a very similar $15 option with a lot of great reviews also. Pictured: Happy Trails Faux Fur Pom Beanie

Budget Thursday: Jersey-Knit Swing Dress

This swing dress is definitely on the more casual side, but readers have been singing its praises over at Corporette. They say it’s comfortable and flattering and that it could work for a casual office. The dress comes in nine colors and patterns in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes, and it’s machine washable, too. It’s $30 at Old Navy but often on sale — right now, 40% is taken off at checkout.  Jersey-Knit Swing Dress

Psst: Amazon’s toy deal of the day is 35% off on Alex Toys, including a bunch of magic/science kits, girly craft kits, preschool art projects, and ZOOB building sets.

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Tweed Knit Jacket

washable tweed knit jacket If you like the look of tweed jackets — but are committed to only wearing machine washable clothes due to kid/pet/other reasons — then note that Ming Wang often has knit jackets that have a tweed-type look. To me this is a bit much with the matching shell — for some reason I’m seeing it with, for example, a light blue shell and gray pants — but you do you. The jacket is $325 at Nordstrom. Tweed Knit Jacket

Psst: Note that almost every day Amazon is including a toy or toy category in their “deal of the day” — today it’s “character” stuffed animals from Sesame Street, Curious George, Pokéman, Star Wars, Mickey Mouse, and more. These are often better than Black Friday sales — we’ll try to include them every day as we can.
