Dear Fashion Friends:

I know how hard Covid-19 has been on all of us. I offer these happy thoughts as we make our way through the last two weeks of October.

I love going to the Eastern Market in Detroit, Michigan. I look forward to finding fresh fruits and vegetables for the week. It is fun to converse with the farmers and watch my fellow Detroiters enjoy this urban wonder. For a long time, I enjoyed going to the Farmers Market Restaurant for their corn beef hash breakfast before I started to shop. Alas, this establishment no longer is around. Nevertheless, the Eastern Market continues to be a joy to visit.

What to wear at the Eastern Market? How about this LONG SLEEVE V-NECK W/BUTTON DOWN CROP CARDIGAN? It is casual and elegant!  Its endearing features include a  V-neck design and long sleeves. his beautiful cardigan comes in brown, yellow mustard, and other colors (see photos below). It would go well with a denim jacket and Detroit Tigers baseball cap. The ensemble will keep you nice and warm as you visit the vendors. 

Here is another happy thought: lunch dates. It is an opportunity to meet up with friends and talk about things that we have in common – books, fashion, and movies. Jump’s has been a source of inspiration for many of the stories found on this blog. I hope those stories will inspire you to dine at Jump’s sometime soon. What to wear? How about this lovely MULTI-COLORED STRIPED KNIT SWEATER DRESS from the AC website? It goes beautifully with a long-knit sweater.  Its charming features include a round neckline and long sleeves. The dress’ pink hem is a delightful touch to the attire (see photos below).

When I was younger, I enjoyed going to Greek Town in Detroit, Michigan. One of my favorite spots was the Laikon Café. Family, friends, and I would go there for dinner. I would get their roasted chicken with rosa marina pasta. Wonderful stuff. Then, we would order Greek coffee and a slice of baklava. Alas, the Laikon Café, no longer exists. However, I happily see my fellow patrons come and go through the doors braving the autumn evening air in my day dreams. And if you are going to face the evening cold, dear fashion friends, I would suggest this MULTICOLOR KNIT SWEATER from the AC website. Its delightful features include ribbed cuffs and neckline. It goes beautifully with denim jeans and a burgundy hat. Delightful!

I hope your visit to the www.aleyacollections.com website was an enchanting one.
