I’ve been to the “mall” a couple times in the last week. I had to go to the Valentino store to see if they could replace a stud that had fallen off my small rockstud crossbody (they did, graciously. More on that in a review of the bag later), and I had a bit of “extra” money I’d saved up from my monthly discretionary fund so I wanted to check out pants at Eileen Fisher.
I sort of just “threw” this outfit together from some things in my closet I don’t wear very often, and because I was getting ready in a hurry I didn’t think too much about it, actually, and I ended up being quite happy with my outfit. (IF I’d had time to think more about it I probably would have changed a million times, and ended up wearing something completely different) Ah…the bane of my sartorial existence: over-thinking.
Okay…so here it is. The “boyfriend” knit cardigan that is actually the men’s chunky knit cardigan re-branded (sort of) for women. I’m still rather disappointed that Everlane wasn’t more up-front about what they did with this cardigan (telling us it was the men’s version on the site), but I do understand WHY they decided to offer it on the women’s side for those of us who didn’t like the fit of the women’s version.
I received a wonderful gift in the mail Tuesday – which coincidentally was also the first night of Hanukkah (although we don’t really celebrate) – the wool sweater from Zady. They were kind enough to send me one to review, and I’m SO pleased with it
You know what I did yesterday? Went to my hair color appointment a day early. Yes, I am that girl. It’s interesting how that worked though: I had put it in my calendar for Tuesday, and completely ignored the reminder email from the salon reminding me that it was Wednesday, because you know, I KNEW when my appointment was, and OF COURSE I was right. Humph.
This sweater looks a bit big. Maybe it is a bit big…which I like, in the body, but on me, the arms are ridiculous. I don’t know. I might have hit a wall with Everlane.
Given how much of a James Perse fanatic I am, it’s pretty amazing I’ve made it this far without ever buying a Yosemite piece. Until now, of course…
