Marc By Marc Jacobs Babylon Stripe Cardigan

I first saw this Marc By Marc Jacobs Babylon Stripe Cardigan in Holt Renfrew a few months ago but couldn't decide if spending so much on a sweater would be worth it. However, after seeing a girl wearing this cardigan (in Holt's again, of all places) and how cute it looked on her, I realized I kind of needed it to be in my closet... you know, right now. As luck would have it, Holt's didn't have it anymore, so I took to the Internet and found it on major sale at Neiman Marcus. Not only that, there was only one left and it was in my size!

Clearly this sweater + me were meant to be, right?

Sweater: Marc by Marc Jacobs (here) / Jeans: Paige Premium Denim
Boots: Primark / Gloves: Club Monaco / Bag: Primark

  1. It's a beautiful sweater :) I love that it's clsssic looking because if the stripes, but the stripes aren't typical. Does that make sense? It's unique but still classic!

  18. SUCH a cute sweater Alison! You + sweater = totally meant to be. How much did you end up getting it for?? I don't think I can justify spending a lot on certain clothing items either. My taste and "need" for things comes too often. I'd be living in a box!

    1. Thank you!! :) The original price was $298 USD (I believe it was around $350 CAD at Holt's) and I got it for $104 USD!

  42. You and this coat were definitely meant to be! I am so excited to see it on another blogger, which I know sounds silly, but I admired it to no end... I just couldn't buy it because of the wool content. I love, love, love it on you - and bonus points for getting it on sale :)
