Timeless Tweed

Tweed is not just for the cold weather months, but, like velvet and cashmere, has become a fabric to wear all year round. The photo above is from the Chanel Cruise 2010 collection. Below are some great Kate Spade versions-a couple are even on sale. Tweed is timeless, classic, and elegant, and, in these great colors, will span the seasons for you.

...and I was just reading about Harris Tweed handbags the other day:

I do wish Chanel would move past their deconstructed look with the fringed jackets and such. Someone should tell Lagerfeld it makes you look fat, and he'd drop it like a potato covered in sour cream.

I do love the other pieces.
