Saving One Sleeve

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Jacob oxford, Smart Set one-sleeved sweater, Urban Behaviour skirt (thrifted & last seen here), unknown tights, 
Aldo shoes (last seen here), Joe Fresh necklace, Bay bangle & Mexican bracelet

Can you believe I purchased this oxford and one-sleeved sweater both over eight years ago?  It's true, and I'm still wearing them (rare!).  I recently had this sweater taken in so it would be more fitted (something it never was and always bothered me) and I am now getting more use of it than ever before.  I do tend to hold onto clothing for quite some time, but usually not this long and this is actually a combination I wore so many years ago and here we are, all together again.

Hey! I was one of the contributers for Veronika's blog feature she put up today.

I absolutely LOVE this entire outfit. It's the perfect mix of chic, trendy and classic. LOVE it!

I kinda wanna try it, but trying to find a one sleeved sweater is gonna be tough I think...maybe ebay.

This is such a good idea! I haveso many tops like that, that I've had for years and then one bit of inspiration and it's like they're new again!!

The assymetrical look is totally adorable. I can't believe that jumper is 8 years old!
