I had my eye on Madewell's oh dear sweater ever since I saw it in one its autumn previews. Cute without being cutesy, and rustic while still reading feminine. I love that it plays into the whole reindeer Christmas sweater vibe, without being relegated solely to holiday wear. The price was enough to keep me from jumping on it, but it sold out before I even had the chance to wait for a promotion with which to afford it.
So when I stumbled upon H&M's version tucked away on a rack - before it's current prominent display at the front of the store - at a fraction of the price, how could I resist? Not only is it legitimate intarsia, but I think the design is even better. And since I could pretty much live in grey sweaters, that was just another big plus in my book. Give me some Bean Boots, an ear-flap hat and perhaps this phone cover, and I am all set for seasonally-appropriate dressing.
