Wona

Finally a break from the blistering heat.  The nice breezy summer weather hit last night which afforded me the opportunity to finally break out my recently purchased Isabel Marant Wona knit for a trip to the beach. This little outrageous creation tormented me when it was released but lets face it, the price was insane!  This is where eBay comes in super handy.  I ended up nabbing it by pure chance at twenty percent off the retail price which is something I could actually justify.  The quality of the knit is absolutely devine.  It's loud, fun and unique (and rather different to what I would normally buy). It also happens to weigh a tone but in a way all these things tend to be what makes it so perfect.

  3. The sweater looks just awesome on you - eBay has been a bit of a godsend for me this past year, so many good bargains to be had!

  4. The colours are fantastic! I love your Isabel Marant outfit :)
    It's a bit difficult to hear you complaining about the weather when you're in dreary Denmark like I am, though :)

  9. That's a real wonderful find ! Even if Fast Fashion tends to make items obsolete the day after they're released, this knit has such a strong personality in itself that it has become a desirable classic. Congrats !

  10. Really love these pics - the colours are fabulous. I can imagine the jumper does weigh a tonne. The "wool" looks very heavy almost like ribbon. I love it when you have these "dressed down" looks. This is another goodie!

  12. Boy, do I rather have blistering heat than grey skies and more grey skies. Thank you for the inspiration. I love the whole idea of pairing chunky knits with skinny cropped pants and wedge sneakers. Love the colorful and totally chic ensemble.

  16. I love this look!!! Very nice shot pictures. It's getting colder over here, so wearing just a knit like this is not really an option.
    Oh I am so jealous of you wardrobe Mandi!

    Have a nice weekend,
