Let's see now - Betty Draper's maternity dresses!! And the print is a hoot.
Speaking of Talbots, I'm a frequent visitor, but hadn't been in one for several weeks. Yesterday's visit was worrying...uncertain whether my local store was in the middle of a display changeover or whether the skimpiness of merch portends something else....
A great way to look au courant without going all the way to trendy:).
Great right now and under a jacket later. And judging from your Look Book preview a short time ago, more on the way including short capes.

I love Talbot's autumn lookbook, there are two outfits that I'm going to blatantly copy.
Adorable blouse. It would look great over a pencil skirt too.
Talbots is certainly taking a turn for the better lately
Miss J loves this top, but thinks the neckline is a "No" for her bust size...
They're certainly improving their style at Talbots.
Oh, I can tell I'm going to be visiting the local Talbots when I get back...it's been torture here, with all the sales, and nothing worth looking at in a size 18! I bought myself a pretty crushed straw handbag today for half-off, but it's a change of wardrobe I'm dying for. I've been living out of a single suitcase for 2 1/2 months.Keep the inspiration coming, Pseu!
Ha! I just bought that before reading your post ...
Toby Wollin - Heh! It does look like it could have been a maternity top, with just a bit more fabric. Remember how maternity wear in the 60's always had those cutesy Peter Pan collars and big bows to draw attention away from the belly?Anonymous - they might just be in between seasons. I've noticed our local stores seem to have limited styles and colors right now. Have you asked them?LPC - that was my thinking too. I could *almost* wear this....Duchesse - I wonder how that collar would lay under a jacket. I guess if it's not too stiff it might work.
Duchesse - that's a nice one! Tabitha - ooh, I hope you'll show us which ones. Would love to see your interpretation!Belle - yes, this would work with a variety bottom half pieces, as long as you keep them narrow and fitted.Nancy K - I have to say I've been impressed with their direction lately.
Miss Janey - yes, it's iffy for me too. WendyB - I think they're certainly trying.Rubiatonta - well, your timing will probably be good, as they will have started to get the fall pieces in to the stores.Tiffany - cool! Let us know how you like it.
Toby so got that right. I can absolutely see Betty in that top.
What's this Talbots you speak of? We don't have it here in the Antipodes. Can I just say I love it when you post your childhood pictures? So poignant.
Dites moi vos pensées...
