a day between fall and winter


I was so lucky to come across a trove of vintage Missoni sweaters when I was employed by a thrift store. Everyone else who worked there thought they were ugly - they didn't even want to sell them! So I snatched them up for a song. This one is my favorite...I love the colors and the crazy pattern. Slouchy sweaters are the best to throw on on chilly days.

I bet those thrift store employees are kicking themselves now, I can't imagine anyone thinking this sweater was ugly! The pattern is amazing and it works so well as a layering piece. I'm really digging your boots too and the way you wore the fur over the sweater.

Omg, that cardigan is so cool! I'm totally into vintage looks like yours!!

Burn That Dress said...

I completely agree with you on the sweaters. It's the so-called 'ugly' ones that are the best really, and hey more for you to snag anyways right?

The tights and the dark purple of the gloves really adds a nice touch too.

Kassi said...

Vintage Missoni and no one wanted it? Weirdos. :) You look awesome in it. This vibe is so cool and chic!
