Althea Harper's Sittella line is one of my favorite lines to shop from when I have a little bit of extra cash but not enough to purchase something major. I love to indulge in the feel of these lovely fabrics and wrap myself in the gorgeous colors created by Althea's dying process. I love to layer the pieces I own and wear them all year round. Althea knows my weakness - last week she sent me the following pictures to share with you, my darling readers.
Sittella Styled for Fall
In the following pictures you will notice Althea Harper's current line of Sittella clothing but dressed up for cooler weather. I don't own any of the following pieces (yet) but I can vouch for Sittella in that it is one of the most versatile unusual lines I've personally tried. Seriously, sometimes I want to sleep in my Sittella dresses. Comfy. Layering. Wardrobe. Builders. Yeah!!!
BTW, I'm going to play "personal shopper" for some of my friends here in the commentary... Just for fun! It won't mean anything to the majority of you, but hey... I'm having fun with this post!

|Harbor Shorts - $88|
I see these shorts and I think my girl Jenny needs them. She has awesome legs, and I think she could rock these on a casual day, almost exactly as pictured. Not to mention they'd make her butt look fabulous as always.

What do you think?
My two favorites are still Cobblestone and Coralline, however I think if you're looking to get the most mileage out of your pieces I think the average person would have better luck sticking with the skirts. Any of these dresses you could slap a cardi over and wear of course, but I'm thinking purely from a wardrobe building standpoint. Sanjay also has potential moving into cooler weather. But shopping with my own money I'd take Cobblestone (I wonder if she can make it in a seriously dark blue). It might look funky but I'd toss a sweater over the top, put some boots on and go! That's what I do with most of my Sittella pieces anyway. They seriously are the most comfortable clothing in my wardrobe, though they are very body conscious, fyi.
Cool Factoid: Althea told me that her pieces have raw hems so if you want to hem them up to your desired length (are you daring?) then go right on ahead. As a short girl I appreciate this - I've already had to hem a couple Sittella dresses I purchased as samples because my legs are just that stubby!
What do you think? Anything striking your fancy?
