My coworkers love this sweater. Thanks to the little patches on the shoulder, I’ve heard jokes ranging from “you’re ready for tea time at a moment’s notice!” to “It’s the lieutenant of the doily army!” Real pranksters, huh? ;)
It’s okay. I’m down for a good chuckle, even if it’s at my expense. And I really do like my doily sweater. It’s super soft and warm, even though it’s thin.
I also think the pale pink in the sweater offsets my rust-colored skinny jeggings really nicely.
… And perfectly matches the infinity scarf my Auntie Kathy gave me for Christmas, and my pretty rose ring.
Boy, am I glad it’s Friday though. Weekends should be longer, right? ♥
Outfit Details: Doily Army Sweater: Pink Rose, Marshalls, $16 (similar, similar). Rusty Skinnies: HYBRID, $20 via Ideeli (similar). Moccasins: Cally slippers in Cinnamon Suede, Minnetonka, $37. Infinity Scarf: gift. Rose ring: Forever 21, $3.
Okay, ladies. You know how much I love consignment shops, right? (Peonies, Plato’s Closet, and Uptown Consignment are my Connecticut faves.) Well hold on to your stylish pants! I just found the sweetest online consignment shop ever: Shop Mieux. That’s French for “Shop Better,” which is pretty spot-on. (Edit: Mieux & Mieux officially changed their name to Shop Mieux this past December.) Here are just a few of the fun things you’ll find there:
Pretty dresses from Solemio, Kensie, Free People, Bebe, Zara… and more of your favorite brands, at crazy awesome prices. That Kensie dress is over 80% off. Seriously.
Tops and bottoms from J. Crew, Citizens of Humanity, Fendi, 7 For All Mankind, all up to 90% off!
And of course, shoes. From Ann Marino to Umberto Raffini and everyone in between, all in fantastic condition.
I must admit, I was a little nervous trying out online consignment. I have a hard enough time as it is finding clothes that fit (who doesn’t??). But Shop Mieux has a 14-day return policy (that’s 14 days after receipt, not 14 days after purchase), so I gave it a shot with this fabulous French Connection bow shirt:
It was originally upwards of $150. I got it for $16. And I think you will agree, it’s perfect. I’m wearing it today! (I blame my wild hair on the windy walk up to the building this morning. Did I tell you our parking lot is ¼ mile from the office? Mmhmm.)
Here’s a slightly closer shot:
I would have never been able to afford something from French Connection if it weren’t for Shop Mieux! They have a physical location in Dallas, which I’m sure is a beautiful little boutique. If you’re in the area, stop by!
This past weekend was so beautiful in Connecticut — it was actually in the 50s! And now we’re supposed to get more snow over the next few days. I never know what to wear, so I usually opt for layers, with pretty cardigans on top. Here are 7 of my favorites under $50 to get you through the rest of Winter, and into Spring.
So you know how I mentioned working on some exciting personal projects? I am so psyched to be guest blogging at Brit + Co.! I can’t think of a more fun & perfect blogging partnership. Check out some of my latest posts:
