Jigsaw London

When I was young, and I mean young, early teens young, we lived in Europe. And when I say Europe I mean Paris, and we traveled a lot, mainly across the channel, on the bumpy hovercraft from Calais to Dover, on which I  never threw up but everyone else in my family always did…but this post isn’t about the difference between the English and French or the above channel vs under-channel crossing… it’s about the first time I became aware of Jigsaw London, in London.  I remember peering through the large windows at the long winter coats on the mannequins, and the tailored suits on display, and the beautiful layered knits, and the fancy shoes and elegant hats… actually I don’t remember shoes or hats, I just knew that Jigsaw London was for the powerful working women of London and that one day I would dress just like them. Time went by, LOTS of time, and I ended up in LA, and I don’t dress like a powerful woman of London, and more like a working mom in LA, which usually consists of  jeans, a striped T, and sandals. (I am not the yoga pants type, and today was the only time I ever went out in public wearing my big white Karate pants. ) So when I found out that Jigsaw London had had a store in Beverly Hills for a few years now, I realized I had not been to Beverly Drive n a while, and how happy was I to discover, that except for the long coats (it is LA, and it is Summer) everything else was just like I remembered, and better… since it did update since 1987… and to my DELIGHT… stripes stripes stripes, everywhere! I had so much fun collaborating with Heather, the Jigsaw London – America blogger, to put together a little photos shoot with some of the outfits … I will be posting some more as they get published on the Jigsaw Blog, and I’ll start with the top seller shirt…In the mean time you can see some of them on the Jigsaw site here, here, and sale here
