Marsala is Pantone's color of the year and I have just the right hand-me up...a jacket the color of Marsala.

As you can guess this coat is a hand-me-up from my daughter...and so are the trousers and shoes. The hat is mine:)

My daughter Sayaka Alessandra made this video for me today. And I made her a cake...a chocolate cake, her favorite.

I am not very particular about fit and fashion, I'll wear just about long as I feel comfortable in it.  And comfort is the word when it comes to this hand-me up from my daughter. It is the perfect fit, size and length for me. As if they were made for me.  So soft and warm also. Perfect for the cold weather we are having these days. What am I talking about?  My new used  TRAPPERS trousers. My daughter bought them  for pennies from a vintage shop in Rome. As is often the case, when she got home and put them on, she didn't like the way they looked on her. So off they went into the hand-me up bag.... much to my delight!
