Happy Birthday to Me!

In honor of my 25th birthday, I wanted to treat myself to the perfect sweater. I'd been eying this Fair Isle-style cardigan by Kensie on a certain website that had it priced at $78. "Totally 100andSouth and such a steal," I thought. I was prepared to buy it, no questions asked.

Though I can easily get inundated with emails from discount shopping sites like Rue La La, Gilt and HauteLook and sometimes delete them to a) tame the shopping beast in me and b) clear out my inbox, I happened to open a day old email from Beyond the Rack - another (and sometimes more unpredictable, less edited) discount shopping website.

And there she was. For $29.

My comfy, cozy, ideal fall sweater. Perfect for snuggling up and drinking hot chocolate/reading non-fiction/painting my toe nails beside my non-existant fireplace. I can smell the wood burning already!

My Fair (Isle) Lady will match just perfectly with the greatest birthday present of all time, my new Chloe Paddington bag! I'm so blessed!

*PERK! Visit Kensie's blog for a chance to win items from their current fall collection with their "Watch Me Change" giveaway, ending 10/14!


  1. That bag is TO DIE for. Black with gold details is my true weakness, as my Marc Jacobs bag (via eBay) can attest to. :)

  2. Caroline, hate to disappoint you, but it's brown :-/ But I do love black with gold and would have taken it in either color!!! This was the only one at the consignment shop, however, so I had to go for it!
