Here are the latest items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets

We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. And it bears mention that most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of JWR. (SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor.) Today’s focus is on investing in rare postage stamps.

Lisa’s boots: Since we wear them, how about white in winter with dresses? – YouLookFab Forum

Ginger on “Lisa’s boots: Since we wear them, how about white in winter with dresses?”

You are very encouraging, Diana! You’re right, I don’t often deal with too much muck. I don’t have culottes, but yes, the full skirts are covered. I’m sure you could get away with bare legs here, but I’m a hot-house flower and have about 4 degrees of comfort. Still, there’s plenty of days I could wear nude tights. Colored opaques are definitely tricky; I have some very light gray with a woven pattern that might work.

karen13, thanks for the link! I will definitely explore white in accessories.

Love these ideas, The Cat! I know these will look terrific with the puffer. I have a vintage triple strand of big pearls – practically a bib necklace – which would do a lot of bookending.

Zibbets, fit will be a big part of this! They are definitely returnable. I had to order two sizes because of the pointy toe, which can be tricky for me.I know a snug boot is much better than wide ones for wearing with a skirt, but it’s possible to be too tight.

Irina, I LOVE these ideas. (Reminds me of Princess Charlotte’s first day of nursery school outfit this week!) I have several burgundy/dark red dresses and a variety of gray and navy accessories.
