Item of the Week 031

It's been a long time since I've posted this feature, so long that 'Item of the Week' is becoming a rather redundant title; I'm sure I could more appropriately justify this cardigan as my favourite item of the month. My mother in law bought me this cardigan a few weeks ago and I've been in love with it ever since; it made me so happy and excited to receive surprise clothes in the mail. It was the best and added so much joy to the day! It suits my style perfectly; I've loved leopard print ever since I was a young child and it matches my leopard print coat hangers (little details like this amaze me too). It's very classic and I adore how much a faux fur detail can add to any outfit. Every winter I believe I have a new favourite style of look; last year I mostly wore coloured trench coats with my skirts and dresses and this year I've moved on to cardigans, specifically with fur collars. This is the first time I've blogged one but I have about five at the moment which I've accumulated over the years. I particularly like how this collar is paired with black because of the versatility; I can create both sophisticated and fun looks. This is definitely one of my most worn pieces this winter. I'll post some outfit pictures of how I styled this soon.

What a pretty cardigan! I reminds me - and I mean this as a sincere compliment - of something Fran Drescher wore in The Nanny. I absolutely loved her style when I was growing up :)

Oh yeah, that's a really awesome cardigan! The leopard adds a bit of fun for sure. :D I can understand why it was such a good winter piece for you. So much more fun than a plain black cardigan. <3

beautiful coat!

lovely!

Panty Buns said...

I was relieved to read it was a faux fur collar (I'm a vegetarian) and though I'm not a big fan of animal prints I know they are very popular and can see why. The colours and the contrast are pretty, and with winter approaching there the warmth would be nice. It was 90 degrees and very humid here today and I have no air conditioning - hot and sticky. It will be fun to see how you style your pretty Valleygirl cardigan. P.S.: I love the collage of outfit photos you have at the top of your blog. They're all very pretty. I love the way you pair up your outfit pieces.

I feel like you don't have to justify it being your favourite item of the month because it's just so darling, I LOVE IT! I can imagine like Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O wearing it on their day off or something. Haha.

I'm glad you're still blogging after how long.
