The pro's to this sweater is the fact that it's the softest cardigan I own. It's made out of 100% pure cashmere so it feels so RIGHT!!! And the sleeves are 3/4 which is perfect. Had it been a regular sleeve, I would have had to pass. The ruching in the middle is makes it so unique and stands out from other normal cardigans. And where the cardigan hits the waist is a great length- not too long and not too short. You really can't beat the quality of a Vince cashmere cardigan.
The con's is that there was no XS which I would have preferred because the fit would have been much better but I just couldn't say no to this. How can anyone say no to hot pink cashmere? I had to belt this cardigan so it wouldn't look so big on me. The small is a bit wider than the XS as you can see in AN's post. Her XS fits much nicer and slimmer.
Belts are so hard to find for petites so this is a random belt I happened to take off of a blazer I no long wear and it is black patent to match the shoes. Luckily the belt has no left-over material that hangs and sticks out like most belts do!
The small fits OKAY and I guess I can make it work because I love it so much. I like my cardigans to be more fitted but if I ever run into an XS- I may have to exchange it:) There were more Pro's than Con's so I can't complain.
I only have 2 cashmere pieces that I own but now am officially obsessed! It is so soft and I just love it. I am trying to only buy fewer things that are of quality vs. quanity. That is my goal for 2010!
I honestly never thought I would spend this much on a cardigan but I know this will be a piece that I can wear for many years to come. You really do get what you pay for.
