Talbots Friends & Family

  1. Kim M says:

    I’ve always been a Talbots fan too. Since they did away with the Heritage fit pants I don’t do as much damage to my card. Wish Talbots would listen to their customers and bring back them back. The fit was so much better!

    • Michelle Jackson says:

      I’m with you!!! I loved the Hrritage fit pant!!!

    • Linda Arnold says:

      I loved your post today! The pictures shown of you through the years were a wonderful way to get to know you better! Thanks for sharing! I love the classic Talbot look too!

  2. Meg Anderson says:

    Love the pictures of you and your boys through the years!

    • Kathleen says:

      I love Talbots and still wear some items that are 15 years old. I have that yellow rain jacket and get compliments on it all the time. I would wear that print dress today, too! The basic sheath is my favorite dress look.

  3. Mary says:

    I have been a Talbot’s customer for years too! I’m lucky to have a Talbot’s outlet nearby. I own several items from a long time ago that still look fashionable.

  4. Kathy Perdue says:

    Loved seeing you THEN and now. My favorite outfit is the anchor sweater and yellow raincoat. 💛💛💛

    Beth, if you ever speak to any exec at Talbots would you please mention that they should bring back curvy tall pants? I am 5’ 9” and need the tall and the curvy. I am a mega Talbots shopper and love their clothes, but have noticed that they are no longer offering the pants size that I need. I am sure there are other tall gals that need this feature as well. Thanks for always styling classics. You can never go wrong with a classic wardrobe!

    • Cathy McMann says:

      Ditto for me, I find the pants at Talbots too short, their full length are ankle length on me and the ankle length are mid-calf, very disappointing. I would buy most of my pants at Talbots if only they were long enough. I’m only 5’6″ but must have long legs.

    What a fabulous post! Talbots is a great store and you make everything look wonderful!

    I live in Southern California and my Grandmother, mother and I just out of college shop Talbot’s catalog…Then Talbot’s stores came to us ad we have never left…

    Beth, this posting of yours today has been one of my all time favorites !!!!!
    I’m gonna apologize now for such a long reply.

    I am 61 and have been wearing Talbots since my 30’s! I even bought their childrens clothes for my kids until they did away with the lines. BUT, I, LIKE A COUPLE OF THE LADIES ABOVE, feel like Talbots doesn’t listen. I buy mainly Talbots and don’t switch around much at all, so when I say I’m dressed in all Talbots 7 days a week, it isn’t a lie. I feel like they have to always change something up instead of sticking with TRUE classics – like their elbow length tee – I have been waiting for it to come back, which they did bring back, but with a scallop neckline instead of the flattering bateau neck line or plain old curved neckline. And so many of their great looking tees all have the short sleeves that don’t flatter my arms. Also, so many of their tees, jackets and such are just a bit short – most of us women that have tummy issues prefer to have them a bit longer. Please ask the execs to maybe consider the long time Talbots customer’ remarks. Also, their quality about some items is sub par lately. Example, I hate that stripes or plaids don’t match or line up at seams. They’ve had some great items (pants and tops) that I sent back because of this. I think $100.00+ pants and 90.00+ tops should have better quality. I’m sorry to unload all of this on you, but maybe you can a spokesperson for us?

    I anticipate your postings everyday – What a gorgeous woman you are and very classy!

    Also, I love it when you do tablescapes and love your additions of dinner ideas and recipes!

    Thanks for showing the many different sides of casual collections. I too am a huge Talbots fan. I’ve been able to transition a working wardrobe to a fun & stylish retired wardrobe and Talbots has many fun pieces. I love anything nautical!

    Hi Beth
    I started following your blog about a year ago because of the Talbots connection. I love the classics, too. I can usually find what I am looking for at Talbots. I like it when you share photos of your past and your boys. I have two boys that are now grown about the same age as yours and it brings back memories of those years.

  11. M Hunter says:

    I Agree! Miss those Heritage pants.

  12. Rosemary says:

    Yes, Beth! From one Classic to another, please ask Talbots to bring back the curvy pants, in the store, in tall AND petite sizes!

  13. Cheryl says:

    I love Talbots. I am from Framingham MA. I visited the Hingham store loved it.

  14. Joan says:

    My mother passed down her love of Talbots to me. I still wear pieces from 20 years ago that are timeless. A perfect post!

  15. Caryl says:

    Beth, you did a fantastic job of honoring the profession of motherhood in your younger years by wearing lovely clothes and caring for your hair and makeup! What an inspiration! And you are inspiring us still by looking beautiful and dressed appropriately into your 60s! Keep up the good work of being classy and lovely!!

  16. BamaCarol says:

    Just placed my order. I had quite a few of the rewards certificates so for 2 dresses, scarf and 4 tops it was only $8.47. I love their sales and rewards!

  17. Karen says:

    Beth, you haven’t changed a bit, just a little older that’s all. It was nice to see the pictures I always just assumed you only had two boys.

  18. R Dawson says:

    Do love Talbots as well. What a great selection of outfits today!

  19. Karen T says:

    Love, love, love this post! Like you, I have been wearing Talbots for at least 30 years. Just shopped there today. Your post was an interesting retrospective of Talbots over time on one person.

  20. Patricia says:

    LOVE this post! ❤️❤️❤️At least 90% of my wardrobe is Talbots, some items are many years old and they look as good today as when I purchased.

  21. Linda B says:

    Just green with envy, wishing there were outlets here in the UK

  22. Alex says:

    You look beautiful <3

  23. Lori says:

    You have definitely kept your fabulous signature style throughout the years. How nice to “see” your boys grow up.

  24. Jane Rinard says:

    I’ve been a Talbots girl for at least 30 years and I have some of the clothing you’re shown wearing! Love Talbots and their current collection has lots of super cute pieces. The espadrilles, handbags and shorts are so cute. Really cute dresses, jackets and pants are super cute now too. May is my birthday month so i’m looking forward to the extra 15% off for the entire month. Love your posts!!!
