Hey there! So, I'm excited to share some new pieces with you guys, today. First up, is this fabulous 1970's fisherman's sweater I bought from Fiery Finish Vintage on Etsy. As soon as I saw it on Chrissi's blog, I knew I just had to have it. Actually, I would not have known about this amazing item, if Chrissi hadn't posted a really sweet comment on one of my blog posts way back when. I just happened to check out her blog and I liked what I saw, so I started following her. When I saw her modeling this sweater in one of her posts, I just loved it and I was ecstatic that it was for sale on her Etsy.
It's really thick, the arms and torso are lengthy (great for tall people like me!) and it's oh so warm. It's not exactly sheer, but there are some visible gaps in the knitting that let cold air through, so I wore a soft, long sleeved shirt from Cotton On underneath. I donned this comfy combo all day and loved it.
Next up is my kick ass ghetto blaster pendant by Plastique. It is yet another item that I felt like I could not live without once I had set my eyes upon it. The price was a bit prohibitive at $27, especially given that the item is made of..well..plastic. However, it is just so unique that I couldn't give up on it. So, I watched it like a hawk and when it went on sale for $18, I managed to snag it when there were only a few left. Sure enough, I went back to check on its status the next day and these babies were gone for good. Some may say $18 is still too pricey and I would be hard pressed to disagree. Nevertheless,
I tend to fork over extra cash for rare or particularly unique items. I think this item fits the bill.
Finally, I wore some thrifted over-the-knee socks over these amazing mixed pattern tights. I hardly ever have an excuse to wear this jewel, so I just couldn't resist the urge. I was going to wear plain sheer black tights initially, which would have worked out well. Still, I think these particular tights made the outfit more aesthetically interesting. They are quite amazing and I wish I could have showed more of it, but it was kind of cold and I really needed those black socks. Hehe. I got these tights for just $20.
