Wrapped in a Sweater…

I love this sweater. It reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Dainty. Stylish. Pink.

I love the popped collar–It’s just right. The sweater is sweet, but the collar gives it a sophisticated edge. The brand is Moda International (Target), but I picked it up at Goodwill for around $5.00. Worth. Every. Penny.

Let’s talk about something else I’ve seen emerging in the fashion world. To celebrate Starbucks’ 40th birthday, Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet, and Billy Reid have each designed a shirt that is being sold at Nordstrom.  This one, by Wang, is my favorite.


I actually really like it. The price tag? $85.00. Starbucks, I love you. I mean, I really love you. But, $85.00? That’s a lot of bacon. I say we buy white shirts from Goodwill, spill our morning coffee on them, and call it a day. You think I’m kidding…

Enjoying the Good Life,

  2. Crazy about the sweater, but I’m with you on the shirt. I know a young lady that could keep Goodwill supplied with coffee stained shirts…can’t go a day without spilling! lol

    You are a great writer and I enjoy your blogs tremendously.

  5. Well I must say, there is quite a Victorian quality to this sweater.

  6. I’m always spilling coffee… had no idea I was being so fashionable. I’d love to see that sweater on you, and what you pair it with.
