My friend lent me her long sweater a couple of weeks ago when I was over at her house. She told me to keep it for a while and wear it because wearing something different, even if it’s not yours, gives you a lift and you can satisfy your craving for something new without spending any money. I tried it and it’s sort of true, unless your friend is 6′ tall and willowy and you’re 5′ 2 1/4″ and definitely not willowy. I loved her sweater but didn’t exactly love the way I looked in it. However, after that, I really wanted a long sweater of my own that didn’t emphasize my assets quite so much. Ahem.
I had a $25 Macy’s gift card, so I dropped in there the other day while I took my daughter to the mall. She had a gift card of her own just burning a hole in her pocket, so I took advantage of the time to see what Macy’s had to offer. I found this sweater and I LOVE it. I’m on day two of wearing it. I love how it’s long and flared, which is a definite plus. I also love how it feels like I’m wearing a robe, but it’s a sweater, so it’s okay to wear all day, or even all day in public. Yay!
I ended up paying $23.53 for it, after all the reductions/discounts off the original $69.00 price. My gift card covered it and I even have a little left over for another fun thing.
