Happy Friday! Part of my morning routine is checking out Shopbop's new items. There is always something new. I 'heart' my favourites, but sometimes there is that item that is love at first sight and I add it to cart immediately. That's how I felt as soon as I saw this J.O.A. Cold Shoulder Sweater. I had a feeling it would sell out quickly, but it was so hot here it seemed silly to buy a turtleneck sweater, even with the cold shoulder, so I was going to keep an eye on my cart (Shopbop also emails you if your 'hearts' are low in stock) and if it showed there were only a few left then I would purchase it anyway. Then a few days later Shopbop had their big 'Event of the Season' and I was excited that I would get this sweater for 25% off (already a steal at $75 IMO), but knew I had to jump on it. But I was stuck in a car with a crappy signal and sure enough it sold out. I searched everywhere for this sweater but could not find it. (This Pam & Gela Cold Shoulder Turtleneck was going to replace my need for this sweater, but I thought I would be patient and wait. Maybe someone would return an XS.)
Yesterday I did what I usually do, checked Shopbop's new items, and there it was. This J.O.A. Cold Shoulder Sweater, stocked in every size. I was browsing other items and probably not even half an hour later, I noticed there was only one left in my size. I panicked, but quickly checked out. It's always funny to me when a piece of clothing affects me this way. There are SO many cold shoulder sweaters out there right now, but for some reason I had to have this one. I think it's a combination of the colour (it's also avail in black here, but I wanted the ivory), shape and thickness. I cannot wait to wear it, especially since it's starting to get cool here in the evenings. I picture the sweater with a pair of cropped jeans and these adorable Jeffrey Campbell Vionnet Flats. I love the colour of this Marc Jacobs Gotham Small Bauletto Satchel. Wine and pink are one of my favourite colour combos for fall.
