I picked up this gem at Goodwill a few weeks ago. The clerk said she’d talked someone else out of this top the day before because it might easily snag. Lucky for me, the shirt was still on the racks (in the display actually), and I bought it.
Pants: Billy Jeans via swapped
It’s a strange shape, with its asymmetrical handkerchief detailing. I’m still debating whether it’s flattering so I wore it with fitted pants to contrast the billowy nature of the sweater. I also added a long, silver necklace to elongate the look.
The sweater is handmade in Israel–something I don’t often see–and it’s cotton. After standing next to a Japanese maple for my close-up I realized how great this color green will look with maroon. Next time, I’ll break out of the black rut and try a complementary purplish hue.
Since this is thrifty and noticeable, I’ve linked up with Thrifters Anonymous and Visible Monday.

What an amazing find–handmade in Israel?! How often are you going to find that!!! The color is perfect on you and I love the idea of fitted pants and a long necklace to give it a polished look.
Thanks for commenting! I never find clothes made in Israel. This seems like a quality piece. I’d love to find out how it got to the Seattle Goodwill.
