|One of my all-time favorite looks from L’Wren Scott, Fall 2009.|
One of the quintessential pieces from a L’Wren Scott runway collection was her sequined cardigans. She seemed to offer them every season in a variety of colors and they were part of her Banana Republic collection last year as well. I was able to snap up a few of the Banana Republic cardigans on eBay for much less than the original selling price but what I have been hunting for was one from her runway collection, which originally sold at Barney’s for over four figures! My absolute favorite was this wine-colored beauty from the 2009 show “Bois de Boulogne,” one of her best collections, in my opinion. In fact, I love this particular look in its entirety, from the cardigan to the coat over it, from the skinny black pants to the strappy sexy shoes and the makeup with a heavy emphasis on smoky eyes, and dark red nails and lips!
I was beyond thrilled to score this exact sweater on eBay recently for a song! I wore it last weekend when my friend Gwynne and I went to Manhattan to see the holiday windows at Bergdorf and Tiffany and the shimmer could not be more perfect for the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s festivities. I wore it as a blouse under a black J. Crew coat and with dark denim (and red nails and lips, of course). After checking out the windows, Gwynne and I had a drink at an Irish pub on Second Avenue and I got a few compliments on such a sparkly cardi!

The sequins are tiny, have an opposite side of silver, and the pile (I’d never thought I’d say that about sequins) runs both ways! The button placket is trimmed in velvet and the rest of the sweater is made of cashmere. It feels like heaven and is a treat to wear.
