The Sweater Stories

March 11, 2014

Hi loves!

Happy Tuesday! I hope that you all have been off to a amazing & fashionable week so far! The weather in New York has been slightly warmer lately (50 degrees), so I have been one happy camper! Just the mere thought that spring temperatures are right around the corner, and I can began pulling out my sundresses, short-shorts and rompers are enough to make me walk the streets of NY with a little extra pep in my step and a huge smile plastered across my face. I can finally see the beam of spring sunlight at the end of this never-ending snow tunnel! (Thank you, sweet baby Jesus!)

On Sunday, I enjoyed the weather while spending the afternoon with my good friends after church. For the day I chose to pair my sleeveless midi sweater dress with a grey wrap sweater, complete with a faux fur collar and leopard heels. You may recognize the detachable faux fur as the same fur I used to make a snood in my “Sunday Funday” post. I also featured it in my social media exclusive post entitled “The Chair Chronicles” by flipping it and making it a longer scarf seen here:

As you can tell from most of my post, I love creating ways to get multiple usage out of things that are detachable (i.e. making a headpiece out of a jacket shoulder pad in my “NYFW Style Recap: Part 1” post). Although I like to make investments on nice clothing every now and then, I LOVE finding a great deal and making each article of my clothing last longer by mixing and matching, and creating new usages out of just about anything that is detachable.

Lets take a gander at the original look for this infamous faux fur, and how I paired it in a little sweater on sweater action! 🙂
