I kept seeing this Kimberly Ovitz sweater everywhere and I debated for a long time over whether or not I should get it. It was on sale at quite a number of retailers and most of them had the sweater styled in such a way that it did not seem flattering. Perhaps the model was wearing one size too large? I don't know. Anyway, the abe sweater is a classic striped sweater, but the fabric blend and the way it hangs is what is most important. It is basically silk and cashmere, which are quite possibly the best two fabrics ever. Also, the back hangs a little lower than the front and it has these cute long belled sleeves. Kimberly Ovitz is a genius and I love everything she designs. All her collections are the perfect dream wardrobe. I can't believe I snagged this super soft sweater for such a great price. I am glad that Gilt Groupe features Kimberly Ovitz once in a while, but I would buy her stuff at full price and I most certainly have done that before. The quality is worth it to me.
I paired the sweater with some bright pants, the closest to red I own. These Rag & Bone suede burgundy leggings were the steal of a century off Forward Forward due to a pricing error on their part. I paid about $140 for them and they retail for $1200 or something. I photographed them on the blog back in December and there is a link to that post above with my original story. I ended the year with a Fashion Snag bang when I snagged these suede leggings. I love the color, the fit, and the zipper placement. Rag & Bone has fast become one of my favorite designers.
I kept the look pretty casual by wearing this Alice + Olivia bomber coat. I wore this on my trip to Vegas whenever it was cold and also on the plane. I love this jacket. I thought about it for a while before I purchased it, but I now believe it is a basic piece because I have already used it so much. It is softer than it looks as well and it fits me perfectly. I like the khaki against the stripes and burgundy. It was really windy when we took these photos as you can see, but I tried to work with the wind. You can see in some shots that I am wearing a gold byzantine necklace. It was a gift from my boyfriend this past Christmas. It is lighter than it looks, which is perfect for me and I can pair it with so many pieces.
