A while back, I posted about this Eileen Fisher drapey cardigan I fell in love with (http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....me-in-this) and there were some questions as to whether this was an item that could work with my style - valid questions as this is definitely a different kind of piece for me.
It arrived yesterday but in our home frenzy, I didn't even have a chance to try it on until just now. First of all, the eBay seller I bought this from was stellar and I can't believe the price I got this cardigan for, which was still in its original package with price tag on.
The merino wool is extremely soft and lightweight but I can tell the sweater will have some warmth to it when the cold months arrive. I'm intending on using it for both dressier outfits at work and with jeans/tees for casual.
I've quickly done a few stylings of the sweater over top my black sheath dress and with my Doc Martens Marcie boots, one of my favourite pair of boots to wear with dresses in the winter.
The sweater fits beautifully (Petite Large). I could have probably gone with a Petite Medium but I like that there is room for me to layer over top a thicker and sleeved under layer so I'm fine with that. I am showing it both loose, with a wide belt (might be better with a thinner belt) and crossed over and pinned with a vintage brooch so that it resembles a cowl neck sweater over the dress.
To say I love this sweater would be an understatement. It is soft, comfy, warm and versatile. Stepping outside your comfort zone can sometimes be a bit empowering. I'm definitely keeping it - but will admit, I'm still curious about what you think.
Over to you ladies...
