Recent purchases

aran sweater: vintage / jeans: Levis / boots: Beatrice Valenzuela
The Aran wool fisherman sweater I got on Ebay was in perfect condition, and fits great - slightly slouchy and a little long, but not so oversized that I'm swimming in it. I opted for this over the shrunken fisherman sweaters at retail stores this season because of my long torso. This one is super comfy and warm, and I know it will last forever. I searched long and hard for a fisherman sweater and got lucky, especially as it's always risky to purchase without trying something on. It was also a great deal at $9.99 + $10 for shipping. The high quality of this sweater is hard to find these days - it was hand knit in Scotland. I'm also wearing my Beatrice Valenzuela botins that I received in the mail yesterday. They feel a little tight but they are supposed to stretch out about half a size so they should be the right size after some wear. I think they will be perfect for non-snowy cold Colorado days. And lastly my Levis black jeans that I bought 3 years ago for $30 which only get more comfortable over time. The overall theme of this outfit is comfy.
