A few weeks ago I got a sweet care package from Lisa of Lizzy Brookes. I have literally been on the edge of my seat waiting for the weather to get warm so that I could pair this outfit together. It was almost completely ruined as well because I had a really bad day.
*small rabbit trail* I was having trouble this morning getting pictures because my usual spot was too bright (the sun was really bright this morning) so I decided to just wait until I got to work. As I round the corner of the house, I see to my astonishment that my front driver's side tire is completely flat. Now, my Dad taught me to change a flat tire and put on a spare, however, I had not changed it on my SUV that I drive now (I drive an X-Terra). This was a problem because I had no idea how to get the spare off the bottom of my car. After many expletives, tears, and road dust all over my jeans... I gave up and called Sam. I had managed to at least get the tire lowered to the ground, but just couldn't figure out how to remove it from the car. Plus, I had really wanted a McDonald's biscuit with jelly and I missed it by 8 lowsy minutes.
So, I changed into a different pair of skinnies (the one in the picture), wiped the mascara off my chin (yep, I cried), and impulsively purchased some french fries and some Orla Kiely stationary that is being sold on Gilt Fuse. I felt better. It was really difficult to get a good shot of this cardigan, but its beautiful. It is a soft kimono-like sleeve cardigan with vintage black lace ribbon delicately stitched. It is beautiful, and soft. I actually cannot wait for late spring early summer to pair this with a black dress for a date or something. My pictures simply do not catch the beauty of this piece, so I'm sending you to the Lizzy Brookes etsy shop to see this cardigan.
As a gift to her customers and supporters, Lizzy Brookes is offering free shipping for the entire month of March as she starts selling her spring collection. I love the quality and the individuality of each piece, and I am sure you guys will too. Normally, you know I wouldn't say go buy clothes, but these are totally worth it. They are absolutely stunning!
