Last weekend when my sister visited, we both had a bag of clothing for each other (we tend to give each other first option on items we are ready to move on, or items that we bought that didn't work ). I took two draped cardigans, and a fantastic sleeveless jacket (brand new that she hasn't worn) from her 'pile' and and she had two lovely (almost new) handbags for me:)
I was unsure of this grey and cobalt striped cardigan but grabbed it thinking if nothing else it would be nice over leggings for around the house. I had coffee with girlfriends and a meeting at school today and didn't feel like all black so I had a play and this is what I came up with.
I will show you the pics from completed outfit back.
#1 - #4
The cardigan seemed too long and a bit drab worn as is in #4, so I put an obi belt around it and pulled one side up creating an uneven hemline and had the fabric from that side fold over half of the belt. Then for going out, I put my Motto Moto over the lot :)
I have to say that I feel that I still need to trim down a bit more before I would consider regular belted outfits but I hope this is passable.
This is the version I wore out today. My girlfriends love it and wanted to know how the outfit 'worked' :)
Motto Jacket layered over the open cardigan which I thought was another option? What do you think? Too long and overwhelming?
This is a bit of an outfit lab! What do you think of the cardigan. Should I keep? If the draping and belting JFE??
Thanks so much for looking and letting me know what you think.
