Daily Covet: Doupioni Silk Ankle Pants

Doupioni Silk, one of the most delish fabrics on the face of the earth.

Ankle pants, one of the few pairs of pants on the face of the earth that fit this petite girl.

With that said, these amazing Doupioni silk ankle pants from Talbots are so rich and so fun for holiday dressing.

Add a beaded top or soft, cashmere sweater and it’s a go for virtually any occasion of the season.

Daily Covet: Nothing simple about this cotton dress

I love the retro look of this cotton voile dress.  And of course, the navy and white colors that have transcended the early spring collections, and have gone right into summer.  and I love how cotton voile has the tissue paper quality that makes it stick out in all the right places – no crinolin or underskirt needed!

While this would’ve made a perfect Easter dress, it didn’t show up in a Talbots catalog until afterwards.  But really, what wouldn’t this dress be perfect for?  Dress it up with kitten heels as shown, or dress it down with white patent flip-flops.  Either way, you have a classic, easy and summer cool dress for virtually any event.

Daily Covet: Standout Trousers

Café trouser in wool, J.Crew.com $99

I don’t know what my preoccupation is with red these days.  I posted that cute cherry clutch the other day, and ever since the Talbots catalog showed up with their early fall line last year, I have been coveting red pants.

Then in a moment of weakness, I perused the sale selection online at J.Crew and there they were – the café trouser in wool, in the petite length, in my size….AND in maraschino cherry!

I had to have them!  And they arrived today, but I have yet to unpack my cherry red beauties.

I hope to God that I love them, because as perfect as they are, they are also a final sale.
