Picking up a Stella McCartney cardigan a couple of sizes bigger than I would usually wear and discounted down to a fraction of its original price is usually the essence of my designer (knitwear) shopping. It's almost like having a treasure chest of quality things that you know will last you a while (no matter the season). I'm just so tired of shopping trends as it feels like a never ending story, crazily addictive and no matter what you do you will never stay on top of the game. I'd rather collect vintage and past season essentials, which will still be relevant in a few years time. I'm being optimistic here. But hopefully. I'm getting side tracked here... so back to that cardigan. Love the idea of it being so big and slouchy, it's almost like a security blanket. Most perfect when thrown on top of a pair of tiny shorts in an iconic Levi's 501 kind of wash and a white cami. The above shot is from a rainy afternoon at home after spending an entire morning working at the studio. I can only do about five hours at a time now before really needing to take a horizontal position. So this is all perfect. Wrapped up to the point of never wanting to get out of that comfort zone.
