Here's my new Rami Kashou cardigan I scored on eBay! The inside is jersey, which also pokes out the bottom for a fun detail, and the outer layer is this ribbed knit fur type of material. It's verrry warm; I'm kind of glad we had a cold and rainy day so that I could justify wearing it and not roast. It'll be perfect for winter.
I'm actually a little panicked about washing it since there was no material tag with washing instructions, but my plan is to turn it inside out, wash it on cold and maybe delicate, hang it to dry, and hope for the best. Or maybe dry clean just in case...yeah right.
I have to say, this peplum thing makes me feel a little Effie Trinket. In a good way.
At first, I didn't think people with hips could wear a big ruffle around their problem area, but I think the idea of the peplum shape is to make the waist look smaller and give a great hourglass shape. I had/have the same insecurities about pencil skirts, which is why I don't own any. Now I kind of want to buy tons of pencil skirts and things with flouncy peplums.
Off topic, but I also feel kind of like a muppet with the furry-ish fabric. Speaking of muppets, we've been watching Sesame Street with Bridget lately, and I didn't realize until now how they sometimes inject a little bit of humor for the adults, too. Yesterday, we were watching one where Cookie Monster couldn't find his cookie. He was looking all around below him, muttering to himself, and said "Usually the prop man is here to hand it to me." Hubs and I busted out laughing just 'cause it was so unexpected and so over any kids' head that would be watching. Maybe you had to be there, but I thought it was hi-larious.
Well, that was random. Happy weekend!
