Since there are lots of us who like to protect our wardrobe investments...bargain or not...I got a request from a friend and reader, Mel, to start a category dedicated to handling our garments, accessories and shoes with care. I commented on a beautiful cloak that Mel was wearing in a Facebook post (I should have known it was St John). I was thrilled to hear that she'd gotten the piece as a wonderful bargain (less than $300) at a TJ Maxx in NYC. A girl after my own heart, sure enough.
She mentioned some other nice sweaters that she'd purchased and that she is mindful of taking care of them because, despite their quality, they had begun to "pill" a bit. Mel mentioned that she not only relies on Woolite but Johnson's Baby Shampoo, as well, for maintenance. Who knew?
