Lauren alerted me to a fabulous online sale at ADAM by Adam Lippes. Right after the holidays, and right after we heard the sad news that ADAM was closing down, ShopAdam.com had a clearance sale where everything was 60% off …and then on top of that, there was a code to take another 25% off! Needless to say, Lauren and I raided the ADAM shopping site! And as quickly as we found out about it and made our purchases, the site closed down! I picked up these two pieces that I know I will wear for years. The jacket has a zipper at the waist so it can convert to an even shorter cropped jacket. The dress is long-sleeve ponte knit jersey that I plan to belt to add color from time to time to give it different looks. I can always wear the ADAM dress with the ADAM jacket, just like I am wearing it today.
