Accidental Obi-Wan

Another post and run - sorry! That's what I get for doing this before work. 

It has been 12 (?) days since my last purchase, and I'm jonesing for sure. I returned almost everything... all the different khakis I tried, a pair of black NAS boots, Topshop tube skirt. Still thinking about the panther dress; not sure on that one. Returns make it easier to eye an army jacket that might actually fit the bill, but I am trying to be good on account of it being tough to wear jackets to work. Part of me wonders if I should still try something I've been looking for for ages, but I have not succumbed yet!

This cardigan is two sizes too big, but it's an item the SAs all got at work, so I'm trying to make it happen. It's a little bit Star Wars worn belted like this, so I wore my Raebot droid necklace and ran with it.

    Love it belted! It's great, not costumey at all.

    I really like how you style it Rae. I rather like the drapeyness of the cardi. Love the metallic footwear too.

    I love this -- I never thought about buying a sweater 2 sizes too big do that I could wrap and belt it ( need to try that) NICE. I love the metallic sandals and the neutral color palette. Definitely Rae style that I admire so much.

    I would never have thought of wearing a cardi like that. Brilliant!

    I can't get over the shoes!!

    Fab idea *and* execution! Very swashbuckling in space. (Now, if I tried this, I might look like I am heading to karate class...)

    Also, you look so tall and willowy! Who knew a boyfriend cardigan could do that too?

    Rae, you have made the cardigan work. It looks great the way you have styled it. Love the drape you have created at the neckline by belting the way you have.

    Love the silver shoes with this. Definitely works to my eye.

    I like the sweater wrapped and belted, and those shoes, oh those shoes!
