Ok, so I’ve established that fashion is always on my mind. Even when I’m not intentionally shopping, I seem to find amazing stuff everywhere I go. For many years, it’s made budgeting difficult. But my taste has evolved. I’m much more discerning about my purchases now. I’ve also gotten much better with setting and sticking to a budget.
Budgeting has, in fact, improved the quality of my wardrobe. I think twice before buying something mediocre. And I always seem to have the funds when something amazing is on the radar. I thought it would be fun to start a new category devoted to some of my stellar finds. So stay tuned for “find of the week“.
So today, I found this amazing sweater!! It works perfectly with the trending and classic “touches of red” styles seen just about everywhere lately. (It’s really a classic trend! Just ask The Vintage Traveler.)
I love this sweater! It’s such a classic, and is durable. It can be casual with jeans and boots, or upscale with a skirt or dress. The gold buttons add a little shimmer. And the pockets are such a menswear inspired detail.
Best of all, I can just toss it in the washing machine. I was sad, however, that the original tag had been cut out. I wish I knew who was responsible for making this adorable cardigan.
But I guess the amazing red dress it came with sort of evens things out. Yes, they came as a set! I wouldn’t pair these two pieces together, though. I like them worn separately. The dress is so perfect for spring. Or a summer night. I can hardly wait for warmer weather!
