What I'd Wear Wednesday



What I'd wear today if I could: something easy by the late Liz Claiborne like this outfit. Classic.

Liz passed away last month, leaving a legacy of offering designer clothes for the hoi polloi (for the most part). Her empire includes Juicy Couture, Kate Spade and DKNY Jeans, among many others.

In the 80s, my stepmother, Anne, was crazy for Liz Claiborne. And I just didn't get it. To me then, the clothes Anne liked seemed plain. Now I understand the benefit of simple, classic clothes -- especially now as a mom, when I usually don't have the time or energy to try to pull together a cute outfit. If you have the basics, then you can't go wrong because almost anything will go together.

This feature is so creative and fun. I always look forward to seeing what you pick out every Wednesday.

In fact, I like it so much that I did a similar post on my blog - just for today - http://stephaniesheaffer.blogspot.com.

Thanks for the inspiration.

I love Liz Claiborne shoes in particular, they have just the right amount of heel and still look classy.
