Day 47 - Wardrobe Edit: Sweaters
Sweaters are arguably one of my most favorite clothing items. I've always felt they carried more emotion than any other item; maybe it's the association with being warm in a cold season and cozying up with people you love. My sweaters tend to carry a lot of good memories, so editing down and getting realistic about which ones I actually wear on a regular basis was difficult. But I managed to do it. Below is my edit:
- Alexander Wang cotton nep sweater
- H&M cotton crochet knit sweater
- Eleven Six alpaca boucle sweater
- Tibi cotton sleeveless sweater
- Vince wool/silk/alpaca fine gauge sweater (this one has a hole in it that needs repairing, so I guess I'll be learning how to do that...)
