As an addendum to my earlier post about the YahooChief Executive Marissa Mayer showing up at Flickr for a meeting, here's a bit more trivia. ( See:Marissa Mayer, Flickr, Liquor and Donuts )

Jennifer Wright at theGloss has discovered that Mayer has a favorite cardigan . Wright, like many white-collar people, keeps a piece of warming clothing in her office. For many women, this is a cardigan that is draped over the backs of their chairs until the air-conditioning summons it to their shoulders. (For Wright, who is perhaps a bit eccentric, the go-to warming gear is a leopard-fur coat.)

"I am relieved to know that Marissa Mayer is wearing the same cardigan absolutely everyplace. CEOs: they’re just like us," she writes.

Wright even thinks she knows who makes the Yahoo leader's favorite cardigan: Oscar de la Renta .
