Lounge » Casual Striped Sweater + Glittered Pumps

Since Spring has arrived, I have been looking for an open knit sweater, preferably short sleeves. I have been wish listing this Free People striped sweater since Shopbop’s Black Friday sale. Then Piperlime had a sale, but the sweater was not that much discounted. In comes Gilt.com, and this sweater was marked way down. Coupled with a Gilt.com store credit, I was finally able to get this sweater.

Currently at Gilt.com, spend $149 and get 20% off. Use Code SAVE20NOW. Expires 06/06/2012 at 11:59PM ET.


Unfortunately, the knit is a lot thicker than I had expected. Even though it’s open knitted, I was burning up! So onward with my search. I ran across lovely open knit sweaters at Loft.com however, by the time a sale rolled around, those sweaters were long gone. I need to make time to go to a local Loft store, but I haven’t been able to make even the 20 minute trip.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.

  1. Helen it is that SAME mailer from BR that is luring me in tomorrow. I really want that bangle too! And I am not sure if I want a dress a top or the zebra black & white skirt. AHHH! I am sitting on $30 worth of BR rewards, plus the $25 off…I have $55 to spend. And it is not like this is real money that would make me richer. AHHH! Love the sweater and I am glad you found it on GILT.
