An Organza Sweater Story

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope your weekend was fabulous!!!


||Wearing: Pixie Market Organza Sweater, BCBG Leather Pants (old), DIY leather cluth, Rivka Friedman Cuff, Sergio Rossi Pumps (old)||

I’m so glad that I made the decision to get these leather pants tailored.  I’ve been putting a lot of miles on them and will continue to do so.  One of the ways that I love pairing this leather pants during the winter season is a basic sweater, and that can be any color (don’t you just love black pants?).  I wore this outfit to a museum outing last week and was stopped by a few women about this sweater.  Well, there’s a story behind this sweater.

I saw this organza sweater months ago at Pixie Market and fell in love with the pretty organza hem but I didn’t want to buy it on an impulse so I waited for a few weeks to think about it.  I went back to the site and noticed it was SOLD OUT so I added my name to the waiting list.  They sent me a notification a few weeks later but I didn’t get to it till a week later.  By then it was SOLD OUT again…okay, so it was not meant to be!  I let it go for a few months and sort of forgot about it.  Then a few weeks ago when I was doing Christmas shopping, I visited the site to purchase something else and voila, the sweater was available…so I pulled the trigger and here it is!!!

    You know when you see something and your first reaction is OH MY GOD! That’s what my reaction was to this sweater. It is so feminine, so delicate so beautiful.

    Really, really gorgeous, and it looks amazing on you.

    What a great kind.

    I noticed it as a thumbnail from the Style Record Linkup, that is how eye catching it is.

    That sweater … I mean THAT SWEATER! On you, especially and of course. I think instantly of a cathedral and a bride in white tule. And that’s a lot of romance for a sweater to pack! Perfect on your delicacy, and with the leather pants. (Yes… excellent decision to alter!) Such beauty ….
