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
Jeans: Banana Republic
Shoes: Mea Shadow
Recycled bicycle tire bracelet: PRFM
Ring: Handmade from buttons by my friend Misha
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.

Love your sweater..I saw something similar to yours at polyvore: http://www.polyvore.com/puff_heart_fringe_tee/thing?id=44034864
but i like yours better…
Oh that is similar! I like the “holes” in the one I got 🙂
Naaaw 😀 cuuute sweater!
OMG, $120?!? It’s a great sweater, but I love the $30 price tag better. That being said, it’s tough to resist the Ian Curtis dress, regardless of the price… I’m such a hypocrite!! 😉
You’re earning Goth points left and right this week. I’m so glad your taking part in this event!
Yeah – It’s definitely not worth $120. The dress on the other hand…
I’m loving this event! Thanks for organizing and for commenting on all the participants’ posts.
And OMG. Why do I like that dress so much? Will you please join my coven?!
Ha ha! Thanks Siouxie! I’d be happy to be an honorary member 😉
