What I Wore: White Stripes Sweater

This year you’ll be seeing more “what I wore” blogs… at least of the good stuff :)

We had a conversation about this at the office today about why this white stripes sweater is so great. It’s black and ivory, which softens the look, plus it’s a great example of gradation. Because of my personal coloring — light skin and dark hair — I can pull off the dramatic contrast. With the vertical stripes, it totally brings the eyes into the middle for a slimming effect. Plus, it’s super warm which works for Utah winters.

    Agreed, that sweater is perfection! I must not be looking hard enough when I thrift, I never seem to find the good stuff like this one. Must. Try. Harder!

    Thanks, Rebecca! One of things about shopping at thrift markets I've found is that you can't be there for something in particular. You may find something you don't expect.
