A few of my favorite things
Posted on 10 April 2015
Did you know that this year marks the 50th anniversary of “The Sound of Music”? I remember vividly sitting in the big theater and watching Julie Andrews twirl through the Austrian Alps. I was just a child in 1965, but those songs have stuck in my head ever since.
Remember when she sings about a “few of my favorite things”…like raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens? I have a few favorite things, too. And now that Anthony’s women’s fashion store offers online shopping, I can buy multiples of my favorite things.
If you’ve read my blog before, you know that my favorite pants are the fabulous Kristin Crenshaw slim pants I buy at Anthony’s. These pants are so comfortable, attractive and stretchy, that I like to buy them in multiples: Two black pairs, two white pairs and two denim pairs. This way, I’m always ready to travel anywhere – from captain’s table on a cruise, to a theme park, to dinner at my favorite seafood restaurant with my husband, Marv.
These pants are made of a rayon/nylon/Spandex blend – a woven fabric with stretch that looks fancy, with a matte finish.
These pants hold up like iron – I throw mine into the washer, then pull them out and snap them, like you snap a towel, to get out any wrinkles created by the washing machine. Then I drip-dry the pants.
I wear these so often, though, that I like to have that second white pair dry and ready for a night on the town.
I also buy multiples of Anthony’s best-selling basic tank by Clear Sky. These tanks are made of 96 percent nylon and 4 percent Spandex. (The straps are wide enough to hide your bra straps, and the neckline is the perfect dip – not too low and not too high.)
While I’m at it, I’ll order a couple Anthony’s Foxcroft 100 percent cotton tunics in different colors to layer over my tanks. (The best part about the Foxcroft tunics: They’re 100 percent cotton but wrinkle-free! No ironing required.)
Anthony’s women’s fashion store is all about Florida sunny style – looking great and feeling comfortable, in easy-care and stylish clothes.
Now that anthonysfla.com is up and ready to take my orders, I’ll be buying a few of my favorite things two or three at a time.
And now that I’m thinking about that…a trip to Austria sounds pretty good right now, too.
