A Big Bow Thrifted Cardigan {DIY}

Hello, 
I hope you had a wonderful week-end. My week-end was pretty hectic. We arrived from Florida Friday midnight and early Saturday afternoon we had a Bar-Mitzvah party. Oh boy, have you been in a Bar-Mitzvah party? The music was pounding so loud and playing non-stop for 4 hours. And Sunday morning at 10.00 am we left for another friend's little daughter's Birthday party. Let me tell you; I did not want to get up from bed to get ready to go to the party this morning.

It was one of those beautiful soft breezy afternoon when I took a walk around our condo in Florida. I decided to wear this DIY big bow cardigan that I created not long a go but never get to wear it until that afternoon. 

There is a tree standing right in front of our porch and by the small lake that has purplish flowers. The ground under neath the tree blanket by these fallen flowers. I gathered a few flowers to create the letter 'E' {my initial} and 'a heart shape.' I was playing around try to capture  a few pretty shots with these flowers but the wind kept on blowing off the flower that it was hard to shoot a perfect letter 'E'. I tried to fix and put the flower back to it's position; I finally got these pictures.







Tutorial.
Take an old sweater. Cut a slit in along the shoulder down to the sleeve about 7". Fold over raw edge and sew in place. Sew a piece of ribbon about 15" long to one side of neckline and another ribbon to the other side of the neckline. Tie together! Just a tip; it would be prettier if you could find a sweater that has a wide neckline. Raglan sleeve would be perfect for this style.

Thank you for stopping by!

9 Ways Wearing Simple Sweater with Skirts for Fall

Simple sweater is very versatile and easy to wear during cold season. The cream plain color is sophisticate to wear with skirts; tailored pants or jeans. All you need is a statement jewelry either wear it with pair of earrings or a necklace.

I was very happy to have found this cream sweater yesterday at Loehmann's USD 29.00 with 25% discount {similar here and here}. Initially I was looking for a cream simple sweater to DIY to put lettering on the front part to make it fun and young looking. But I could not find any perfect lettering to stencil on to. So I am postponing this project for the future.

In the meantime I was trying to organize my wardrobe as to what I could wear this sweater with.

I found 9 ways to wear it with different skirts available in my closet.




I love this look and pairing it with high waist pencil skirt. I put a brooch on the sweater to give a 'lady like' look. 



 To go to that special dinner with 'the love one', this skirt is perfect with the sweater. The lace tiered ruffled and a bow on the waist adds a touch of glamour for any occasion at night.

This below the knee length of boucle skirt is perfect to wear during day time. Simple and classic.

Pair it with sequin mini skirt will create an edgy young and playful to go out at night. Here I am wearing it with cream vintage embroidered purse and embroidered 2 circles earrings to carry out the embroidered and sequin theme.


This look is simple and classic. Wearing it with oxford pumps and pearl necklace.


 This look is 'young and sweet' looking. Wearing it with t-strap pumps and stripes skirt is just lovely !

I can wear this to accompany my husband to a business meeting. All I need is a tailored jacket to complete the look.


Another look for day occasion; lunch with friends maybe ?

I own this skirt for as long as I can remember. I love the detail in the front part. This skirt is stretched and when wearing it; I immediately feel slimmer. You know, this is one of those skirt, and as long as you don't gain lots of weight, this skirt will always be my favorite. I cinched the sweater on the waist by wearing a skinny vintage golden belt.  And it feels that the whole look is elongated my body. I like it !

I can picture wearing any of these looks with a jacket or coat just hanging on your shoulder without wearing it completely. Oh, so lady like and so elegant !

Well, thank you so much for reading !
