Style File: Vintage Metallic Knit

You know I have a fondness for sparkly things. I spotted this purple sweater with metallic threads running through it last year. I was so excited about it that I neglected to check for defects. Turned out to have several holes. It's a very loose weave and prone to unraveling. It's easy to fix though with a needle and thread!


Love the slouchy banded sleeve and a boatneck too. It's a very comfortable sweater to wear. My feet may be chopped liver but oh wells..


I don't know if you can see in the picture but there's a cat in the window behind me. Yes folks, now I'm being photobombed by a cat! The baby and the baby's father also made an appearance.

 Photobooth fun at Black Book's Mixers and Shakers event. 
I'm usually really bad in the photobooth. I always have mad pokerface. I think the trick is several alcoholic beverage.


I loved Ms. Stoli Salted Karmel / French Vanilla's costume. The top hat and sparkles are super adorable.


Comfort over style or style over comfort? or Both?

Style over comfort until you reach 35 then it's comfort over style 90% of the time lol.
Very cute sweater and heels.

I try to combine both. At some point if you choose style over comfort it starts to show in your body language and people notice. So, to avoid people focusing on that, I seek comfortable pieces that are also very fashionable. Loving the sweater!
