Sooo, just thought to share with you guys that I was feeling a bit "retail impulsive" the other day, and dropped in to my trusty Urban Outfitters on 14th St. to check out what goodies they had in store. Happily, I came across Mary Ping's collabo line with UO called Cool, Casual, by Slow and Steady Wins the Race, and completely fell for this mesh sweatshirt/tunic piece with cutout shoulders.
I checked this out on the website beforehand and wasn't that impressed, considering I could just buy a cheap Hanes oversized sweatshirt or go to American Apparel and do some DIY to copy this design. However, when I saw it up close and personal, it was definitely better than I thought. The black mesh layer over cotton feels soft and a bit luxurious, and at the moment, I love anything with black mesh...quite sexay! It's also extremely cozy. I could curl myself into a ball in this oversized thing and have a good nap..haha. All in all, a very satisfying purchase. Now I must resist all forms of retail temptation and SAVE what little moolah I have (back to closet shopping for moi).
