"A Sunny, Sweet Smile"

Oh how I love Ebay!  I’ve been longing to own some J. Crew cashmere pretty much since I became aware of its existence, but their sweaters tend to retail at $150 plus a pop, so they’ve been out of my graduate and now post-graduate-still-searching-for-a-permanent-job budget.  But it didn’t dawn on me until recently to simply look for one second-hand on Ebay.  I scored this gorgeous sunshine beauty for a mere $50!  And it is the softest, most luxurious thing I have ever owned.  The color is so fantastic.  This has quickly elevated itself to a new wardrobe staple for me.

Wearing items of good quality does something to you.  Having soft, comfortable fabrics close to the skin just makes you feel so good.  I think that every one should own at least one 100% cashmere item.

This outfit, by the way, is also what I decided to wear to Eyeliah‘s virtual birthday party.  Nothing like a pretty dress and a sunny cashmere cardigan for dancing the night away, virtually or otherwise.

  3. Somehow I have been missing your posts – nice to have you pop up again! That yellow cardigan is just wonderful.
    Last week I saw a black & white handbag, and considered buying it, but didn’t.
    Now that I’ve seen your B&W dress, I wish I’d bought the bag.
    I love eBay too – but for selling.
