yep, here it is ... again. the warmest sweater ever. this sweater is definitely keeping me "sane" this winter. which brings to a commentary on the winter-friendliness of my current style. i am ready to admit that my "old" style (the one i sported before kaliyana and rundholz came into my life and became the primary sources of my wardrobe) was more winter-friendly than my current style. layering a down vest over two sweaters over a dress worn with a petticoat and skinny jeans (see here) (or layering a down vest over a jacket over a sweater over a shirt worn with a skirt over skinny jeans (see here)), plus the heavy wool socks and shearling lined bean boots, kept me toasty warm in ways that my current layering, with my unlined, albeit lovely, trippens, does not. a simple solution would be to go back to my "old" style come winter. the problem is that i really like my current style. i am comfortable with it. really comfortable with it. right now i don't want to go back to the "old" style, not even just for winter. my "old" style worked when i wore it. now my current style works. i guess that i will have to figure something out (maybe i could wear the abominable snowman coat inside and out ... ?).
i am wearing the alpen top and the tokyo hat by kaliyana. i am also wearing a jumper dress and trousers by grizas and a pullover sweater by rundholz (black label). my boots are the noon boot (box collection) by trippen.
