Here’s another challenge for Red and Black week at Sophistiqué Noir.
I saw this sweater at a flea market in Florida this past winter. Nothing had price tags but the clerk said it was $50. I was on the fence about it. Loved it, but $50? I talked myself into it and went back the next day. A different clerk said it was $120. What? I skipped it.
Then, last month in Vancouver, I found it at Plum, a little boutique on Granville. It was $30. Yay! I didn’t think twice.
Tank top: Old Navy

I used to name my clothes when I was a kid. In the spirit of youthful creativity, I’m calling this my Love Will Tear Us Apart sweater. One day, when I have an extra $160 lying around, I might get this Ian Curtis dress. Until then, this top will do.
