I just got back from a trip to Asia, and have been laid-up on the couch recovering from a nasty case of food poisoning. I will spare you the details here. Combine that with jetlag, cold, rainy weather over the weekend in SF, an online promo, and I may have fallen under the influence of... the Sweater Madness:
Exhibit A: the Colorblock Cardigan:
I love the color combination on this - unusual, but very pretty and classic. I hope the white doesn't look weird against a fair complexion. I think it will pair nicely with dark-wash bluejeans (like those wonderful stretch toothpick jeans recommended by Gigi) and a dress shirt for a preppy-casual work feel. Also, I luvs me a shawl-collar. They're so cozy without feeling constricting.
Exhibit B: The Kendor Cardigan:
Not really sure about this guy. It could be a big ol' oversized sloppy hot mess, or some cozy loveliness. It was still a bit pricey after the promo so it will have to be pretty great in order for me to keep it. I really like this color, and think it would be versatile with either neutral or more colorful tops underneath, and maybe some cute black minnies on the bottom. I've found that I wear my neutral-colored sweaters much more than my brighter colors, so am focusing on getting a few more of those into my wardrobe rotation right now.
Exhibit C: Hellooo, Cashmere:
OK, this is actually something I put on my Christmas gift list. :)
I also noticed that, even though it wasn't advertised, shipping was free. Is this a new thing on JCrew's website?
Has anyone bought or tried on any of these sweaters? What are your favorite JC sweaters right now?
