I hate to start off with something so trivial when there's so many serious issues, but I've been doing a lot of shopping lately and it's frustrating.

As you've noticed, suddenly dresses are all the rage. Don't know why it isn't always so. Some years there are almost no dresses in the stores at all. But anyway, why are they making so many halter, spaghetti strap and strapless sundresses unsuitable for work? And why aren't they making some kind of little summer jackets to wear with them to cover up their unsuitability for work? The last couple of years, there were so many shrugs, boleros and ponchos. But I didn't buy any. Now they make all these dresses that need covering up and cover ups are nowhere to be found.

Any why are these dresses primarily made with polyester knit and spandex or thin wrinkly woven cotton? Why not cotton knit? It's too hot here for a polyester dress.

What are the designers thinking?

Good thing: Elle line at Kohl's. Especially the puffy sleeved v-neck polo-like top. Very flattering. Much more flattering than a regular polo. Great design at a sensible price in a sensible store. Should come in more colors though. I love my dark purple one, but it could look so cute and retro in some other colors. It's a great wardrobe basic, but alas, it will be gone from the racks soon, because that's the way things are done
