Winter Woolly Delights

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.

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?
