Crazy for stripes
Will I never get bored of stripes? Or Sonia for that matter?
Following a case of dress envy - after I spotted someone wearing a cool grey, purple and black stripy Sonia Rykiel affair - I decided to go sale shopping.
And this Sonia by Sonia Rykiel sweater is what I picked up for half price. OK, it was still (whisper) £92, but it did start out at £184 originally so that's a saving of nearly £100! Plus, it's made of the loveliest, softest merino wool (which doesn't itch at all. Don't you just hate itchy wool?).
Sonia's sweaters wear well, so this is an investment piece. And her trademark stripes are a classic, too. I love the low-key frills around the sleeves and the waistband, and the purple and black combo is a refreshing change from monochrome.
OK, I could have waited until next month's Sonia Rykiel Pour H&M launch but, you know what, there's always space for Sonia in my wardrobe - especially in the sales!
