Vaute Couture got some cozy perfect-for-leggings oversized sweatshirts in. If I had unlimited funds, all of my outerwear would be Vaute Couture. It is such an amazing company, speaking from ethical and design standpoints. I do have one of their coats from last season that I lucked out on and got for half off and it is stunning. The coats are definitely investment pieces, but the tees, sweatshirts, and jewelry are totally affordable! The black rabbit sweatshirt is my favorite.
I love the whole baggy, oversized sweater trend going on right now, the only problem is I feel like I can find amazing hobo sweaters at thrift stores pretty easily so why would I spend a lot of money on a new one? I found one of my favorite sweaters ever at a Goodwill Outlet in Portland where they charge by the pound. But I'm not always in the mood for digging and sometimes there are no second-hand treasures to be found, especially since wool sneaks its way into sweaters like nobody's business. Urban Outfitters always has a ton of wool-free sweaters and cardigans and their sale racks seriously can't be beat. I just got these two Kimchi and Blue faux fur jackets that were originally $148 each on sale for $25 a piece:
Yes, I got both colors! The price was too good to say no! I'm totally gonna wear the black one in a crazy Black Swan-ish type outfit for an Oscar party I'm going to. On to stuff I haven't already bought...
ModCloth is one of my favorite places for vintage looking dresses and non-leather shoes. They also have some cute cruelty-free sweaters and outerwear.
There are a few things I've been eyeing over at Nasty Gal as well.
If you're wondering why I refuse to wear wool, here's some info. If you are against wearing fur, wool and leather are just as bad and much more common. Or watch Skin Trade, an excellent documentary by an award-winning director.
