Prepalicious Pretty

I love this pretty, little cardigan for many reasons:
1. It's floral
2. It has a turqoise background (my fave color)
3. It's super sparkly w/ lots of fun sequins

You can't really see all the sequins in this photo, but they go all up and down the front, mid section of this cardigan. Even the buttons have a bit of shine to them. I got lots of looks today at work - not that I was trying to, I just think people couldn't help but look because as I walked the various sequins would catch the light and flash in people's eyes. Sorry guys if I blinded any of you today...lol.

I have to say, I've been reading your blog for sometime now and I love how you put outfits together! I'm a little jealous, lol. Anyways, you have wonderfully classy tastes and keep up the good work!

I really admire your tops and skirts from Banana Republic. I'm from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and we just recently have our first B. Republic opened where i'm working (sad case huh?). But the collections are not as nice as yours.

You give me lots of dressing tips.Keep it up!!

I never know which buttons to "undo or do" with a cardigan like that. All buttoned up is too granny-like, but all open is so...
But now I know! :-)

Hey Browneyed_demeter, Aww - that's so sweet! Thanks for the thoughtful compliments. Will do!

Hey Anonymous 1:00AM, that's awesome you guys got a Banana Republic! I've been shopping BR for awhile now, and spent most of my clothing money in their stores, so I've gathered quite the BR collection - you just have to pick out your fave pieces each season and collect here and there - not to mention they have great sales. Thanks for the compliment - will do!

Lol Catlin - I don't know if I'm doing it exactly right, but I usually leave the top and the bottom buttons undone for cardigans like this one (with lots of little buttons). I have some cardigans with a deep V that only have 2 or 3 buttons and I usually button all those, but sometimes I leave the bottom one undone.
