old and new

I love chunky sweaters but the season to wear them is so short. They don't exactly fit under my winter coats so the window of opportunity falls between the end of autumn and the dead of winter. I am actually considering chopping the sleeves off some of them and turning them into vests so that they fit under coats. I have yet to pull the trigger though - one of the candidates is this Rick Owens sweater so you see why I'm hesitant.

  2. Don't change the Rick! It looks like it's a nice weight for spring. That Lim dress is beautiful and I like how you paired a sweet dress with more edgy leather pieces.

  3. You have that Lim rosettes dress!! I'm so jealous, it's a wonderful piece and I like the way you toughened it up with the leather. The knits sweater are great and I'm sure you'll eventually find a way to wear them outside of that short window.

  8. I have the same problem with chunky sweaters so lately a chunky, sleeveless knit vest has made its way onto the shopping list.

  10. I know it's not Steven Alan but which of their shirt styles do you prefer? Reverse Seam or Boyfriend?

  11. Hey Anon - all of my Steven Alan shirts are reverse seam. I like them because the length is just right, not too long, not too short, and they are slim enough but I can still button them without it gaping too much. My favorite boyfriend shirt (it has holes and is yellowing now, I wish I bought multiples!) is by SHIRT, which I bought at Intermix.
