i don't generally purchase many chunky sweaters, as i feel the name implies, they add unnecessary extra bulk.  but, this gorgeous cream sweater is comfortable and relatively flattering.  made this purchase at the grand opening of h&m at metrotown.  of course didn't get any photos at the event because i was in shopaholic hunting mode, while trying to mingle.  i'd be mid convo with someone and my eyes would be wandering, trying to spot the next item to add to the try on pile!  anyway, i am absolutely ecstatic that h&m is finally in metrotown, so i can get all my shopping done in one place.  a huge hug and thank you to lj pr for the invite.


also to be discussed is one of my favourite shopping finds of 2010, le pendleton cape.  it was a mere $15 at wasteland in san fransisco.  i hadn't heard of pendleton before, but loved the plaid pattern and the fact that it was a cape.  had to come home and google it, and fell in love with their prints.  now, the pendleton tag seems to be everywhere and i am so happy i scored my pendleton piece at such a great price.  aren't finding fashion treasures the best?


hope you're all having a great week my beauties!

  9. That cape is amazing. 'Nuff said.

    I'm actually looking forward to Forever 21 opening downtown so I never have to go to Metrotown again! It's funny, not long ago I was a teenager hanging out at that mall-and now I can't stand it because of all the high school kids hanging out!

  14. Hm, I can relate to you. I often don't wear bulky sweaters, but I think they look great with skinny bottoms.

  15. Oh, that cape! Where do I even begin to talk about its fabulousness? It's the perfect plaid, it's a cape, and it fits you like a glove. I'm swooning. I love the sweater you picked up at H&M, too. No matter how unflattering they sound, I'll always love chunky sweaters... Mainly for the warmth factor, but it helps when, like this one, they also look cute :)

  21. I simply adore this cape: the pattern and the gold button amke it so original from the usual designs. I'm a fan of chunky jumpers even if, like you, I rarely buy them, but this season there are so many beautiful sweaters...and you pucked a very nice one. Have a great w-e!
