Orange you glad...

When I was a little girl, I loved looking through the Spiegel catalog. So many pages, so many outfits (that my mother would never wear)...it is probably the sole reason for my deep-rooted catalog addiction.

Not sure what happened to Spiegel in the last three decades, but looks like they are making a run at a fashionable turnaround. Good news for us, gang!

I'm not usually a big orange fan, but these are the pieces that really caught my eye.


Double-Knit Coat Belted, with roll collar in pumpkin spice. Yum. And only $99!

Here's the belt they have paired with it:


Metal Hinge Belt. (Scroll down to find it on the link.)





Silk linen duster with 3/4 sleeves. Comes in great colors like graphite and pinkberry.

It's pictured with this Silk Bow Pin.

Also in a variety colors...perfect way to change up the coat quickly and easily.


Throw in a little purple, just for fun:
Pleated Suede Bag. For $59.00, it's a steal.

Don't get me wrong...there are plenty of standard Spiegel moments of over-embellished, bad floral moments. But, at least there is promise and at a reasonable price point.

Happy shopping,

Mrs. NR

Huh - I'd been ignoring Spiegel for years, but I may have to start paying attention again. That orange trench is too wonderful - as is your punny post title.

Spiegel always confused me. Such a huge catalog and you had to pay for it? Weird. I like this stuff though!

Oh, Spiegel definitely figured into my future plans when I was 12-16 years old. I think they went wrong when they let the look of the "Together" part of the catalog become the look of the whole thing. Glad to see they're back. Like pop music, it's one thing the eighties got right.

Oh how I LOVED the Spiegel catalog! I thought my adult life was going to come straight out of that book!

I loved their home furnishings, their commercials and some of their clothes... but really... I had to hold back the gag reflex when I saw the section of clothes that I think was called "Together" brand??

Embarassed to say I didn't know they were still around!
