Shine

I'd been eying the coated sweaters all winter, and try as I might not to give in to the after Christmas sales, I was lured to Kohl's (I needed to return something, and got four whole dollars back) and was toting an armload of newly reduced merchandise to the register in no time at all.

This sweater was only $10.20 after the reductions and I may have bought the gold one too, along with a pile of other stuff, which I'm still debating keeping.

I must say, I do love my new Ily necklace, which was a Christmas gift from my Brother and Sister-in-law. I'm sure you will be seeing a lot of it.

I love the sweater - I did see the gold one @ Kohls but didn't have my size...but that's ok I got something else LOL The necklace definitely makes a statement!! Have a great weekend!

Style Journey said...

Ha! I almost bought the gold sweater but didn't end up getting it. Kohl's had some great deals this holiday season. I love the silver sweater and your leather jacket. I didn't realize how long your hair has got until these photos! Heather

You have the best jacket collection! I got my sister a similar sweater for Christmas in a sparkly mint color. Love it!

Closet Fashionista said...

I love that coated sweater! Definitely a great buy! And your post Christmas shopping was more responsible than mine, I did mine at Net-a-Porter XD

(I think I started the list in 2008, but I went through a list of movies by the year on IMDB to see what I remembered seeing before that. So it is from most of my life, haha)

Haha, I totally tried that sweater on the other day! It was just a bit too small though as I wanted for it to be oversized and slouchy. But dang, I'm glad someone got it--it's so cute! And shiny! And such a weirdly awesome material.

You're the TJ Maxx bargain queen!

Ali Hval said...

*Kohl's bargain queen KOHL'S
but I mean you're also pretty much the TJ Maxx bargain queen so...

I have to admit, I've been seriously missing after Christmas sales since I've been in Europe... our sale period doesn't start for another three weeks and I keep seeing gorgeous sale finds on blogs I read, like your silver sweater, which could not be more perfect :) Love how you styled it, too!

TaraMixandMatch said...

Glad to see you got that gorgeous sweater!

Jill said...

Yesss! that sweater is great! I love the heft of a coated sweater. It kind of eliminates bulkiness in a slimming way! And 10 bucks ! WHAT!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Ooooh I like this necklace, too! I am a definite fan of the metallic sweater, but I haven't seen any for $10.20 (more like $100.20, ugh). I might actually try not to buy any clothing for the month of January... we'll see how that goes.

Jill said...

So I just ran into Kohls to see if they had this sweater but no luck. It's online but I was wondering what size you got? You helped me once with that Chevron dress and that worked so Im hoping you can help again! :) thanks!
