Sweater: Vivienne Westwood via Crossroads Trading Company (similar)
Jeans: AG Stevie Crop Jeans (AG Stevie Ankle Jeans)
Boots: Steve Madden Intyce (buy here)It's weird. Last year I was strictly against sweaters in my wardrobe. Not consciously, but I really didn't purchase any -- I stuck mostly to dresses and cardigans. This year, I've already collected a fair amount of sweaters to wear because (lame Game of Thrones reference here) -- winter is coming.
I think it has to do with trying to stabilize my wardrobe after so many years of buying fun, color-pop, patterned pieces. I needed nice, complementary sweaters to create a cohesive outfit a higher percentage at the time. This grey shrunken one is no exception.
Admittedly, there are two reasons I bought this specific sweater recently. 1 - it's Vivienne Westwood. My eyes literally bugged out when I saw it at Crossroads. 2 -- I love the embroidered planet on it! It's this weird preppy piece from a primarily punk designer. And I made it spectacularly more preppy by layering a collared shirt from J Crew under it.
Thanks for stopping by!
