your grandmother's Valentino tapestry kimono cardigan
You know when you see something online and it's love at first sight and you really want it but it's too expensive to justify but then it goes on sale and you get it and you're a bit disappointed when you finally have it? Yeah, that's the story of me and this cardigan. I still like it. It's a unique print with a loose and comfy fit akin to a blanket scarf, without actually being a blanket scarf (which I find impossible to wear.) But online, the knit looked a bit thicker and the black a bit darker. The floral motif kind of reminds me of something an elderly grandma would wear/ drape on her wall as a tapestry. And to be honest, that doesn't really bother me. In a more fashion related sense, I do get some of the same medieval-y tapestry vibes as the Valentino f/w 2013 collection, and that's never a bad thing.
