Cosy Knit Cardi Thrift Find

Late October, I was on the search for a light coloured cardigan and was really pleased to find this wool knit oatmeal one. Its by River Island and what I love about it is the deconstructed style to it-its short at the back and has a longer asymmetric style to the front, a stylish alternative to a basic cardigan I think.


I found it at Oxfam for only £3.50 and I've been wearing it already, with jeans and a tee. Whats your favourite cosy knit so far for this winter?

Perfect find and fab colour.
I've got a cosy jumper from topshop years ago that I always wear every year in the comfort of my own home!

I tend to wear more wool jackets than cardigans - but this gets me excited! I like the "oatmeal" color and the short cut in back. I have been wearing most all of my tops shorted. I like the way it gives me a waist!

a cheap wooly cowl neck jumper with short sleeves I got from New Look. It has a rough texture but it's really warm.

I have like a maxie cardigan I wear under my coat...yes, its that cold here. Great for extra warmth out in the cold or even inside too.

I've been combating freezation with my small collection of vintage cardi-coats. I like the unusual design of your cardigan.

My fav. cozy knit is a Pringle of Scotland wine colored kimono style wrap cashmere sweater that I got from Harrods. It was in the sales improperly marked (hahahahahah) and was originally 525 quid.....and was supposed to be marked down to 325 quid....but I got it for 32 quid! YEAH!!!!!!! Now, Sharon, you have to admit....that'd make you proud, wouldn't it? Savvy steal, no? xoxoxoxoox

You should do personal shopping for people, thrift-style. That could be your new job!

SR@MyStyle said...

Hi everyone-thanks so much for all your fab comments-to Wendy, I think I'll leave the personal styling to Kate, not sure I've got the patience, LOL!!
