There have always been some phases in my life when I was obsessed with or overdoing certain trends more than I should. Well, let see.. there was the kimono phase, the flat shoes phase, the leather, the silver bangles and one phase in particular that went on for a while, the cardigan. I had so many cardigans in my wardrobe that when I went shopping with some girlfriends and tried on some cardigans they went "I could have sworn that you have something similar.." and chances are they were right! Not only I had many, I had multiple of almost similar style. I know, it was bad!
Fast forward a few seasons and after blogging came into my life, I let go most of my cardigans (those girls at Safa Park yard sale a couple of years back were over the moon walking away with my bundle) and kept only a few that I really liked. So, to celebrate this wonderful winter season this year, I would like to feature these old loves of mine in a little segment I called The Cardigan (sounds like the title of a movie, LOL!)
This one by Victoria Secret has been in the closet for a while and I was thinking of letting it go. It is wool, heavy, thick and itchy and those characteristics contribute to why I hardly ever worn it. It is too bulky to layer underneath a coat, not warm enough to wear on its own say in Rome during winter and too warm for the usual Dubai weather. Thank Goodness this year we have been blessed with the perfect winter season here and cold enough for this kind of cardigan! I took it out yesterday for an afternoon tea with Captain and I have to say besides the itchy feeling wool always give me, I was happy, warm and comfortable.. almost perfect! I might not let this one go after all..
