The title of this article “THIS IS LIFE” was the only thing running through my head, this chunky knit really is the best thing that has happened to me.
Okay I will reel it in a bit, we all know I can be a bit dramatic but when I pulled this out of the delivery box I was like OMG, OMG, OMG. It was way thicker and heavier than I expected; it is truly out of this world.
When I was browsing the Net A Porter “new in” pages, I saw it and gasped. I saw the price and scrolled passed it. I kept going back and I did this over the course of a week. I have always wanted a classic Burberry knitted piece and after a week of stalking it I just went for it. BEST DECISION EVER. I will wear this for the rest of my life… fact.
995 divided by 50 = 19.90. Cost per wear this cardigan is £19.90 and that is only if I wear it 50 times.
I will wear this cardigan more than 50 times, you do the math as to how worth it this is?
I am happy to not buy a single high street sweater in return for this amazing piece. It will last me a life time, quite literally. I can wear it at home all snuggly because it is soft cashmere and it’s also warm and practical. It is so thick it acts as a coat.
There is also another style here, which is a sweater. I would love to have the sweater too but for me I think the cardigan is going to have more wears (cost per wear.) I can throw it over dresses and even wear it in the evening.
I think it is pretty clear that this cardigan is LIFE.
Although this cardigan is simple and classic, I still feel it is the statement of this outfit. Of course the boots are the sassy part but the cardigan is strong enough for me to keep the rest of the look simple. I wore a classic pieces underneath. I think bigger chested women suit v neck tees more; just a personal preference. V necks also look great on everyone else!
My jeans are by Acne Studios. I love the shape, straight leg and not too skinny. I also love that they have no rips, makes them more classic and formal. I was missing a pair of smart black jeans (with not rips) in my wardrobe.
The boots are to die for, don’t you think? Did you see them in on of my recent hauls here? They are still not available to buy but keep checking here and they will be soon. For now you can shop the biker boot version here. They are almost identical to my new CHANEL pearl biker boots but half the price. I bought the coat the boots are styled with before I saw it paired with the boots. I was so happy I had bought the coat because it look so good together.
The bag is so me, so muscle and boxy. I really love all styles of this bag. I love the black and gold here, the studded styes here, the velvet one here and the other colours here. I love the thicker strap and I love how chunky it fees. It fits more than I imagine too. I have been wearing this bag as a cross body over my new ACNE chunk knits here and here. You can watch my latest YouTube video tomorrow to see more. Make you are subscribed to my channel here.
Finally the earrings are a dream come true. I just found the original gold ones here, these are the ones I spoke about in my video when I unboxed the earrings here. I love the glamour and OTTness of these earrings. The earrings dress up a simple look to make it of so me.
