These are recent purchases from www.onestopplus.com.  Mostly I'm happy with them, but for the navy pajamas.  One leg is shorter than the other.  Noticeably.  Since I'm not wearing them outside of the house, it's not a problem.  The hat is very goofy-looking.  I look like The Cat in the Hat.  I don't know why I bought it, except that it had a style similar to a hat that I really love but don't often have occasion to wear often, and I thought it would be a good style for me in a more casual, everyday hat.  Was I wrong?  I don't know.  But I love the gloves!  They are warm and long, which is good, because the gloves I bought from LL Bean ten years ago leave my wrists sticking out in the cold.  Also, they're looking dingy.  I hope this hat and glove set last as long as the LL Bean set. 

It came to my attention recently that I didn't have enough lounging-and-working-around-the-house type clothes.  In September I went through a wardrobe purge and reorganization, and a lot of the clothes I had been using for that purpose bit the dust, either because I had to put them away for the winter, since they weren't warm enough, or because I outgrew them, or they were stained, worn and holey. 

I purchased some of these during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.  The pajamas I bought earlier in the season, because a lot of my old pajamas didn't make the cut in the wardrobe purge/reorganization.  I've been meaning to write about that wardrobe purge and reorganization.  It was quite an undertaking, and I was very glad when it was finished, as well as having a great sense of accomplishment for seeing it through.  It took a month.  

My sock collection was from hunger.  I bought some socks in the Staten Island Mall back in September, and then I bought these from the King Size collection of OneStopPlus.  They're men's size 7-9.  They fit fine.  Go ahead, laugh at my big feet.  It's OK.  I figured basic black would go with most of my bottoms, as well as my Doc Martens boots, and the white would go with my white sneakers.  Yes, I am a nerd.  I think I just lost any claim to fashionista street cred I might have with this paragraph.  I embrace my inner Geek Chic!!!

Total damage to the credit card:  $287.52, over a period of two months.  Being warm and comfortable: Priceless!
