Whew, is so chilly out!! I think the high was 25F today. I’m ready for spring. But to help me get through this cold winter, I picked up both this cardigan and the scarf over the holidays. Oh, and do I love them!
I think I technically got the cardigan first. Its this thick, chunky cashmere knit my Marni. I just want to wrap up in this thing and never take it off. It is the warmest sweater I’ve ever owned. And its the perfect drab gray for me 😉
My other favorite purchase was this plaid scarf by Loro Piana. This thing has some weight to it! Its definitely the thickest scarf I own by far. And the warmest. Put these two items together and I’m one happy camper. (Camper? Where did that saying come from, anyway?)
Price-wise, these were both reasonable purchases. The Marni cardigan was the more expensive of the two at around $150. “Sale retail” is about 2-3 x more than that. The scarf was almost exactly $100. Loro Piana scarves have a ridiculously high retail value, so I was more than a little excited about this one!
So, there are other exciting (for me, probably not you, lol) purchases that are currently on their way here! I finally got a black Equipment blouse for a reasonable $53. I also picked up a rust colored cardigan, a pair of jeans (because I’m hopeless) and a new black handbag! Time will tell if it’s a keeper. And my eBay watch list is still 4 pages long! Let’s see what else I come away with…
// Diane Von Furstenberg Coat (extremely similar and gorgeous version by DKNY) // Marni Cardigan (similar by Inhabit) // Inhabit Top (can’t go wrong with AW) // J. Crew Pants (here) // Kate Spade Shoes (similar ones by Ivanka Trump) // Loro Piana Scarf (Macy‘s has good options) // Kate Spade Purse (classic Kate Spade) //
