Shades of Sportscraft pink

Mum and I made a little visit to Sportscraft in Harbour Town over the weekend and I was delighted to find they were offering an extra 40% off the marked price of their clothing, shoes and accessories. There were not many new things to play with, sadly, but I did uncover this gorgeous ‘Lily’ cardigan and ‘Gabriella’ snakeskin belt.

In a soft, apricot/pink hue with a draped front, this 3/4 sleeve, linen-blend cardigan is a wonderful trans-seasonal piece. Today I layered it over The Row’s ‘Hazelton’ jersey top in rose pink and cinched it closed with the newly purchased belt. The cardigan had been $119.95 and I got it for $29.40! The belt had been $59.95 and it was marked down to $10, so I nabbed it for $6!! That magnificent fuchsia will work with everything, from black to white to navy to pink to green. In love.

I kept my makeup soft and pretty – flushed cheeks, pink glossy lips, strong brows – and my hair loose and wavy

As it has been really quite cold in our office the last few weeks, to keep warm I wore a gorgeous recent eBay purchase, these Lanvin fleece wool pants from the Fall 2009 collection (here on Style.com). A sweatpants style with a cuffed hem and stretchy waist, these pants feel like I’m wearing pyjamas, they are THAT comfortable. Today is their first outing and I’m honestly thinking – how have I not been living them???!! (“You have too many clothes” – my mother’s immortal words…)

I purchased these pants from my favourite eBay seller for US$60. You can shop similar styles by Lanvin below by clicking on the image (all are on sale) in order to give you an idea of their retail price.

Bottom row, left to right: Lanvin jogger pants from The Real Real, retails for US$1,550 now US$475; Lanvin silk paisley pants from TheOutnet, was £613 now £180

I popped on the Giuseppe Zanotti booties I wrote about here. Actually, since I wrote that post, I have been wearing these just about non-stop. I have a feeling this cardigan will be another one of those pieces I’ll wear non-stop because it is feminine, the colour complements everything and it is a style that is amenable for all seasons and occasions.
