I started off my first weekend of shopping in more than 4.5 months with the Blim fall craft market up on Main and E. 17th. I was exhausted after a week of BC Fashion Week coverage for Stylefinds and was mainly there to chill out rather than write up the market as another post. It was there that I met Nicole of It's Your Life and fell in love with her vintage-inspired charm necklaces and earrings. A little too much time browsing the jewelry selection on the Urban Outfitters website had given me a taste for faux vintage jewelry, especially pendants on longish chains with statement charms. I picked up a brass chain with a bow charm and a cameo.
My 3 BR visits (I went to one location, went to another, then went to the first one to get a cardigan in a bigger size) led to 3 cardigans purchased, all of which fit into my fall must-have list.
A hot pink cashmere sweater was on my must-have list, but when I spotted this silk-wool blend cardigan I just couldn't resist. The raised rounded buttons are a whimsical touch on a wardrobe staple, and the punchy colour would look great paired with the white, gray, and black tees and tanks I've been wearing constantly.
Just a basic black cardi made almost entirely of fine merino wool. Again, not cashmere, but considering my limited sweater budget, it's better to buy a good wool sweater than a shoddy cashmere one.
I couldn't find my size in the reddish-orange version of this sweater. Then I tried on the sweater in brown and loved how refined it looked. Besides, I already have a reddish-orange wool coat with black buttons...getting a similar-looking sweater coat would be too much. (Incidentally, I like how I've used the words "bi-atch" and "refined" in the same post--because here at Solo Lisa y Nada Mas we're all about class.)
