So I’m wanting a jumper for winter,but not just any ole jumper – one that is going to keep me warm but doesn’t cost the earth. I ideally want one with wool in it – am guessing this shouldn’t be too hard to find, as all the stores have plenty of winter temptations. I decide to go to Zambesi, Storm, Kate Sylvester, Glassons, Country Road and Forever New.
It would appear that what I am wanting isn’t quite going to plan as most of the jumpers in the stores are predominantly made from acrylic and I’m actually wanting one with a little warmth. Prices on offer range from $59.00 to over $400.00 and all manner of colours, shapes and designs are available. In the end however I got the exact jumper I wanted on Trade Me at half the retail price and brand new. It’s a navy merino wool jumper from Zambesi with a bright fluro strip and I just love it. I am still a little tempted to buy the short-cropped jumper at Glassons with the teal print on it and may go back. I liked the fact it wasn’t black and fitted great.
In my mind Glassons has the best range, variety and prices unlike Country Road who I thought haven’t had a good selection of winter clothes so far this year. Perhaps I am just being a little too picky!
Not one to enjoy winter, I am definitely counting down until the shortest day on the 21st June when life will start getting a little lighter and brighter for us all.
