Sweater? French Connection, warehouse sale at The Ex
Boots? Charles David, thrifted
A soft off-white sweater, worn-in jeans and brown boots have been part of my autumn/winter uniform for many years. Back in the day, I never imagined that I would start a fashion blog; that my level of comfort would increase and I would be too busy wearing shine, leopard overload and pleated pants to have time for my old cold weather favourite. But then I saw this perfect slouchy sweater for $25 at the French Connection warehouse sale* and I knew that I needed to revisit the look. This is the fashion blog updated look... the sweater is puddley and the boots are strappy and the purse is fuzzy. And I felt so warm and wonderful that I wore it Friday night and again on Saturday. The sweater might be my most perfect 'soft, off-white sweater' yet... I'm pathetically torn between wanting to wear it everyday and only bringing it out for very special occasions. Haven't decided yet what to do yet... this blog could very well become My Edit on Rewearing a Sweater...either way, air hugs only when I'm wearing this puppy. If I see a make-up stain...somebody gonna get hurt...real bad.
I'm an easy laugh...corn husk eyebrows...
*For those who asked about the French Connection warehouse sale... it was in the warehouse section at The Ex, behind the madness of people clamouring for $5 stretchy jeans from UB. Past that chaos was a much quieter, fantastic French Connection area. It was good...
