This sweater and bra is a bit of a style departure for me, but it's getting cold and I just don't feel like wearing those baggy Gap dolman sweaters that I bought last year while I was pregnant--they are even baggier on me now non-pregnant. I wanted something with a bit more of an edge to it. I found this Helmut Lang asymmetric sweater and initally I bought it 20% off at Nordstrom, but I returned it because I thought it was too low cut for me. The SA was like, "I can't believe you are returning this! And you got such a great price! I am going to buy it and take it home with me!" I was half tempted to grab it back from her, but I didn't want to fight over a sweater! After I went home I immediately regretted returning it, so I was looking around (of course it was sold out at Nordstrom) but everything else was full price. I was about to give up and pay full price, but then saw it at Shopbop and took advantage of their 25% off promotion for Black Friday, and it happened to be on sale as well, so I got a $230 sweater for $120, even better than the $180 I bought it for before! Sweet! I also bought a Helmut Lang asymetrical bra to wear under it, for a little more interesting look plus I don't have to worry about it being too low cut.
I also bought some snow boots--I've just been using DH's old snow boots from when he was a kid that have no insulation. I think it's time for me to have some adult snow boots. These are Born Zuniga and are a very dark grey with lots of UWPish straps, and a zipper so you don't have to undo the laces each time. I got them at the recent Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale. These will be useful for when we go up skiing once or twice a year. They're lined with a comfy fuzzy lining to keep my feet warm--kind of like an Ugg alternative. I figure it will be a fun winter MOTG shoe...all of the other moms and teens seem to be wearing Uggs so I wanted something a little different.
With my army green parka and rugged boots and map bag and silver spike cuff, I feel like a UWP on a secret winter mission! (I know I'm a wuss, it was 38 degrees this morning, but I was nice and toasty in my winter gear). I also wore this sweater with my cream parka and silver wedge sneakers over the weekend. Thanks for looking!
