There’s something to be said about vintage sweaters. We usually don’t think about them until this time of year. They remind us of grandmothers sitting in their cozy living rooms by the fireplace knitting away at another snowman sweater or the tired office holiday party theme, ‘ugly sweaters.” I like to shop for vintage sweaters because often times, I end up using them as blouse replacements. So, I want something that has character. This vintage sweater is no ordinary sweater and definitely not your grandmother’s sweater.
I love anything sequin, sparkly and with lots of bling. So when I came across this sweater at my local Goodwill, I was ecstatic. It is super warm and versatile enough that I can wear it with just about anything. It is slightly large on me (shoulder pads removed) but I like the room that it gives because I can wear a blouse or camisole underneath. I really wanted this outfit to pop, so I decided to wear it with the Victoria Beckham for Target hot pink trousers, my snake print heels and a simple black clutch. I skipped on accessories altogehter because I wanted the outfit itself to do all the talking.
