Save Item: ASOS $14 / Splurge Item: American Apparel $30
Sleeveless turtlenecks in the 90’s were like the shoulder pads of the 80’s, everyone was doing it and no one was quite sure why. Are you trying to keep from catching a cold or are you trying to hide a hickey from your parents a la Full House? What ever the case apparently the 90’s are back… and I’m loving it! All jokes aside I love this trend and can’t wait till mine arrives in the mail. I bought a regular plain old sheer turtle neck from Express last year to wear to work in the winter and to my surprise, I ended up wearing it more than I anticipated. Since the summer I’ve been on the hunt for a cropped sleeveless variety but couldn’t find one anywhere until I finally tracked one down at American Apparel. I liked the look of it but not the price so I held off on buying it. Naturally, I was super pumped when I stumbled upon this one at ASOS yesterday during their Cyber Monday Sale, for less than half the price of the American Apparel one.

An item that you spot and instantly fall in love with is like having a song stuck in your head. As hard as you try, you can’t get it out of your mind! Last week I spotted a woman on the street wearing a coat very similar to this. I instantly thought fell in love with it but with no way of knowing where she got it from (she was too far away to approach and ask) I tried to forget about it and go on with my day. Naturally, the next day I spot ANOTHER woman wearing a similar style cardigan/coat while I was at church. Typically spotting two people wearing something before I purchase it would make me probably want it less, but this cardigan/coat seemed like the perfect weekend throw on to combat the already cold weather we’re having here in New York.
For the past week I’ve been
frantically searching to find a similar (and affordable) option to this black and white geo patterned oversize cardigan. So far I’ve managed to find these three options:
The first one is a Staring at Stars Reversible Knit Cardie from UO which actually probably looks the closest to the original one I spotted on the street. The second one is another Staring at Stars brand Knit Cardie from UO which is slightly less expensive since it’s not reversible, and I actually like the pattern more on but wish that the overall color was white with black designs instead of the other way around. Last but not least I found a third option, a Blanket wrap Cardie from ASOS, that looks ridiculously comfy and warm!
