It's what I've always said...




These lovely photographs, taken in the Puglia region of Italy by photographer Roland Bello, totally confirm something I have long maintained... That the french sailor-stripe sweater is maybe the most perfect sweater you can hope to own! It's so timeless, classic, versatile and chic. I own three and am always on the hunt for more. Maybe because in some way I can imagine while wearing it that I'm on my way to a beach picnic in southern Italy, or off to sail the high seas, as opposed to my current, rather land-locked, Los Angeles life.

p.s. Don't you totally want to go to Puglia now?!?! *sigh*
