    It's that time of year when we all get together with our loved ones to be thankful.......

    Siga and I are thankful each and every day for all of our blessings, and we make an extra effort whenever we can to be grateful for the things that we so take for granted in our lives. We look at all of the ease and comfort we enjoy that is provided to us by those we sometimes don't even notice.... and we appreciate the contribution that every person gives to our quality of life. Last year I was especially moved by the difficult life of the farm workers who harvest our crops.... this year I am amazed by the all of the people who offer us the services that make life civil, and how they do it while remaining somewhat invisible....

    Siga and I are also grateful for all of you!!!! You are the ones who have enabled us to do what we love for what will be 22 years on the day after Thanksgiving.... THANK YOU all for encouraging us and being our loyal supporters....

    Siga and I have had a steady stream of new clothing and accessories flowing for the last few weeks, and we LIKE it!!!!

    We are going to share this newsletter back and forth.....

    kati.... It is finally getting to be COLD for some of you.... I know my friend Kaye in Colorado is cooking up homey and delicious soups and stews as the weather dropped 50-degrees! For those of you cold and lucky ones, I have the Awesome Coat from Dress to Kill. One look at this delicious black wool number and you will know why Jane named it that.,,,, a great balloon shape with big bold buttons and pockets in the front. It is a stunner! You can be using some of Irina Staricov's accessories..... the little felted bag with poppies comes with the pin that I have decided to put on the shawl collar of the coat....

    kati.... I always say that I don't sell hats, but I cannot seem to keep the Dress to Kill Funky Hat in stock!!!! Scrunchy with a whimsical flower, these fleece hats are not only fun, but they seem to fit everyone.....

    siga.... I just got a great new group of knits from ItemZ. The knit is a textured wiggly stripe that comes in black/red or black/charcoal. All of the styles are one-size-fits-most, and easy because they are perfect with your favorite black pants or skirts.

    This Cropped Jacket can also be worn as a top.

    siga.... The Cowl Jacket in the textured stripe is a great piece. It can be worn with the collar up or unbuttoned, and it can give you the look of a short duster.

    siga.... The Cowl Jacket in the black/charcoal stripe is very smart looking!

    siga.... Now, this is a piece that really is one-size-fits-all! The Open-Side Vest is long and dramatic and easy to wear. I have put it with my Moyuru black knit top and pants and one of my gold ring necklaces from Israel.

    siga.... I love the Israeli necklace with the layers of silver circles to go with the long vest in the black/charcoal combination.

    kati.... This is only the most GORGEOUS Susan Riedweg bag that ever lived!!!!! First of all, the distressed glazed gray leather is glorious, and then you have all of the special details.... knotted cord straps are adorned with conduit and leather.... the long side pocket closes with a pounded metal button like those at the end of the zipper-pulls.... the inside is lined with charcoal suede and has two zippered pockets....and....and....and....

    kati.... It felt like a holiday this week when my two fabulous boxes of Tina Givens arrived!!!!

    This is the Clara Coat.... it is big and cozy and wonderfully fun.... black sweatshirt fleece with beautiful brown leather ties and trim around the pocket AND more leather and fabric patches in special places. It is plenty roomy for a sweater underneath!

    kati.... Tina's olive velvet is to-die-for. Trimmed in black, the London Dress and the Demi Pant are going to be THE outfit for the holidays.... and all the time before and after. REMEMBER.... Velvet is NOT just a dressy fabric.... wear it with your jeans and boots. It LOVES to be worn. I wear it all through the fall and winter and into early spring.... and I know a lot of you now do it too!!!!

    kati.... The Simplicity Dress Straps is a simple and easy piece in black velvet with a nice scoopy neck and subtle details at the sides of the hem.... and it has POCKETS in the sides. Simplicity is the go-to live-in piece that you will wear and wear..... I have it layered over the Betty Petticoat, which is a skirt. It is black silk douppioni trimmed with bits of white at the sides. It is LONG and FULL.... really a PETTICOAT!!!!!

    kati.... I adore the Angel Slip.... an ethereal ruffled black silk organza piece with just a touch of velvet ruffle on one side. I have layered it over a simple black tank and the Betty Petticoat.

    siga.... Kati is already wearing her MSquare Balloon Pants like these. She is getting lots of compliments. The pants are soft knit at the top, with pockets, and then the pant legs are made out of squares of taffeta embroidered with polka dots and circles. They are too cool!

    siga.... I am really happy to have more of my AMB tees. These tees are all one size (tiny), and they stretch to fit up to a size 14. They fit TIGHT, so they are perfect to layer. They make wonderful "sleeves".

    I have "Paris" in red, white, blue, orange, and acid yellow/green.
