Hmmm, What to Buy

Colorful leggings from Meridian. $24 for full-length and $18 for cropped. Pretty hues (click on purple, right) and a non-muffin-top-making waistband make these a perfect leg warmer. You have to buy colored tights this season and layer them with cute socks. I insist.

This top at H&M on 34th and 7th. Dreamy butterfly blouse ($24.90) makes wearer feel like Marc Jacobs muse. Easy cut hides winter weight gain – no, don’t panic, c’est normal, just mother nature keeping you warm.

Navy Aerosole flats on sale rack at Famous Footwear for $14. Comfortable and yes, conservative (yikes!) but every girl should own a pair of Tod’s-like loafers sans Tod’s price.

The Great Mystery follow-up: been using it for a week with great results. Makes my skin soft and de-scaled face in just a couple uses. Am now addicted and believe in miracle cures. Must stay away from snake oil.
