Kriss-Kross

Another cardigan post! "Oh no!" you'll say, "she's gone bananas". Actually I haven't, but as soon as I saw this 3.1 Phillip Lim cardigan at La Garconne (my favorite online store filled with impossibly awesome things that I can't ever afford), I had a flashback to my high school days. I attended Catholic school and as part of our uniform, we had a v-neck cardigan that we could wear when it got chilly (chilly means about 60ish degrees, this was Puerto Rico after all). Our friends and I would wear our cardigans front to back all the time because.... because... we thought it was cool? Ha! I don't know exactly how this came to be, but basically if you wore your cardigan the right way you were LAME (I also cut out thumb holes on the extra-long sleeves, for that extra dose of "edgy").

Anywho, this version is obviously a bajillion times more luxurious than the royal blue atrocity we had to wear, and I am especially fond of the beautiful sequin detailing in the back, but at $475, I think I'm just keeping my high school memories.
