The Cat's Meow (I Know!)

Sweater: Opening Ceremony
Leggings: I.N.C
Boots: Avenue
Jacket: Asos
Necklace: Montreal Metro Stand

I saw this sweater online somewhere while ago and was instantly in love. It didn’t even deter me when I tracked down its maker and saw the price tag attached to it, I knew that one day I’d need to own it in my wardrobe. Of course, I had the usual worries that it wouldn’t fit anyone even approaching my size, but then I saw it on the endlessly stylish Nicolette Mason and my fears were mostly assuaged. She’s near enough to my size that I thought it would work winningly if I ever got down to buying the thing. After some twists and turns in my road to cat-faced sweater glory, mostly involving mistaken size issues and that one terrible week I thought it was sold out (it wasn’t), finally Christmas came upon me and I knew what I had to do. 
It took a while, but my sweater arrived at my apartment, and I arrived to it primly folded in an express delivery box when I returned from Montreal. Needless to say, I was pretty damn ecstatic. I didn’t do anything too fancy with it for this first casual wear, I’m gonna go ahead and do the whole, white collared shirt beneath the sweater thing for it when next I wear it out, but for this one I kept it relatively simple. It’s extremely soft (EXTREMELY) and very warm. There’s nothing like function joining hands with fashion, this sweater serves me well in the (admittedly unseasonably warm) northeast winter.
