Okay, I admit it: I am revisiting a fashion that I wore when I was 17 (that would be in 1985 for those of you keeping track of such things). The boyfriend cardigan. I had a black one just like this, that I think I finally gave up about 5 years ago (I wore it for painting and hanging around the house, NOT in public).
I remember wearing it oh, so many ways:
- with one of my dad's white shirts, a slouchy full skirt, a big low belt (which I still have), and red pointy-toe flat lace-ups
- with a black high-waisted satin long skirt (slit really high in the back so you could walk!), Grandma J's copper jewelry, and black satin pumps
- with black stirrup pants (ouch!), an oversized floral shirt, ropes of fake pearls, and white kitten heels.
Hopefully I won't look back on this incarnation of it and cringe like I just did writing those descriptions!
I was pleased overall with this outfit - I was inspired by Angie's post on the boyfriend cardis on You Look Fab. Picked the cardi up at my favourite consignment shop for trade-in for some of my clothes on Sunday. It's a poly/wool/rayon blend - it was lovely and warm.
