falling into autumn in chunky knits




sweater - 3.1 phillip lim | skirt - old navy | shoes - diy payless | bag - hype | rings / bracelets - diy &f21

So I posted about this incredible $40 bargain 3.1 Phillip Lim 2008 resort collection piece - from Angel Street Thrift Shop in Chelsea - a few weeks ago. Mmmmm so I finally got to enjoy the wonderful softness & warmth of this heavy sweater a few days ago when it actually got cold here in New York! Not cold enough for me to put on tights yet but a sweater's a pretty big leap for me. Can you believe it's a resort piece?? I love its silhouette, the amazing draped loose sleeves, perfectly placed shoulder side tabs, and the huge buttoned pockets. It's unfortunately a tad big on me (M instead of a S) but it's just sososo comfy. Can't wait for autumn now... if only I had a few capes! Shall go probing various vintage & thrift stores this coming week for one before I move out of Chelsea. 

Oh and I'm starting to have anxiety attacks. Separation anxiety from summer, Chelsea, work, everything... major boo. The mid-smirk/laugh attack caught so ungracefully in that last photo is definitely lost now =((((( The far away land of Morningside Heights/Columbia/SCHOOL is so stuffy and makes my brain throb. The impending doom... only intensifies the necessity of some comforting capes to hide away in. Ughlughugh. Ickityickick.

  1. Glad you are getting so much use out of your awezome DIY payless shoes! I'm a little jealous! Also I am jealous that you are able to start wearing fall clothes... it won't be fall in Texas for a few more months :)

  30. I am dying of jealousy over that sweater!!!! I was already drooling over it before I read that you paid only $40 for it?!!! I would have nearly died of a heart attack if I found that in a store. Nice work.
