A Few Of My Favorite Things

The Uniqlo +J collaboration dropped and, even though I’d posted on it, everything sold out online before I got my act together. So, I went to the store on Fifth Avenue and picked up this gray parka. Lightweight and a great color, it is exactly what I need. I got two sizes (runs large), one to fit over a chunky sweater. Uniqlo seems to be restocking online.

I’m obsessed with the Danish jewelry line, Ole Lynggaard. The nature-inspired pieces have stolen my heart and I have an extensive wishlist. My husband gave me this ring for our 25th in August (I gave him a tractor) and now I’m hinting at another one for Christmas…

We are hunkered down again with the surge in COVID cases. This time, I refuse to pad around the house in slippers all day. These Chanel Mary Janes are at the tippy top of my wishlist and I’m trying to track down a pair.

  • I just received my Chanel ballet flats yesterday with the idea that I will wear them in quarantine a la Linn Hagglund.

    What size are you looking for in the Mary Janes? There is nothing I love more than helping people scour the internet for exactly what they are hunting for, it’s such a thrill. Now how can I turn this into a career…?

    If you do come across any chic slippers, please let me know as I am in the market. I’m looking for the look and feel of Charvet, but it’s been surprisingly difficult to find. The item highest on my list is the Naked Cashmere Emory cashmere slippers.

  • Oh love the MJs. I’m sad to hear +J runs large. I ordered navy shirt, black cardigan and the same jacket in wine – they arrive later this week. I have a similar jacket by Sacai in black and LOVE IT! It’s so light weight as I imagine this jacket is. What a beautiful ring for your anniversary!!! Congrats!

  • Love the gray parka nearly as much as I love Ole Lynggaard jewellery! Like you I have an extensive wish list. What a lovely gift from your husband and may he take the hint! Congratulations on your 25 th anniversary.

  • Love Ole Lynggaard jewelry and that ring is fabulous – what a wonderful anniversary gift. Great jacket and shoes too…

  • So disappointed in the +J. Just received my order and everything is exceedingly oversized. Ordered same jacket as you and it swims on me. For anyone ordering online, I suggest going down 2 sizes. Always enjoy seeing your choices!

  • I just received my +J double breasted coat and it fit! I normally take a small and this small fit perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised after reading other reviews saying that everything was oversized.

  • The +J jacket is sold out online so I’m tempted to buy one new on eBay. A medium in their lightweight down jackets is a snug fit for me. Should I size up in the +J? And do you like how it looks in person?

  • super chic gray parka from +J Uniqlo is restocked. Typically not a fan of fast fashion but this is really good, and on sale for $70. Agree it runs a bit large. Perfect weight for California.
