OOTD - Cozy Sweater

I became obsessed with it on the SimplyBe website but it was a whooping $75. I love that website but a lot of the clothes are priced very high. Being that $50 is a splurge for me (recent fox sweater purchase excluded, of course), I was like, "the f*ck you mean $75?" But, I stumbled across a coupon code for 30% off and one for free shipping and I got it for $45. Which is a pinch easier to swallow.

A spoonful of coupon codes makes the medicine go down in the most delightful way!

I was a little skeptical at first because I expected it to be a more fitted on the bottom. Seriously, is a fitted, slouchy sweater so much to ask for? Gawd! But after I got it all put together in an outfit I loved the bagginess. It was perfect for a cold day at the pumpkin patch. 

Buuuuuuuuut, in the one day that I wore it, it got snagged twice and one of the baubles fell off. I don't know if I was being excessively rough or what but, it happened. Because I am super awesome, and know how to weave yarn into fabric, I was mostly able to get the snags back in and I will be sewing the bauble back on when I get a chance. Still mostly please with the sweater though.

Oh, and the scarf! I love this scarf! It has little drawings of women holding umbrellas*. It's so cute. I will have to get a closer picture of it the next time I wear it. Also, I'm really into this vest. It goes along with the leather/studded/butch thing that's been happening. Which, I am way into. Especially, with this cutesy, pink, baggy, bauble, heart sweater. It's opposite heaven.

*Quick aside, which is totally necessary. I call all the scarves I own from modcloth by their product names. This one is called Rainy Day Regale. I also own a scarf named It's a Crewel, Crewel Summer and I am definitely keeping my eye on the When and Wear scarf.
