Managed to snag two of my favorite things in my closet right now on Bib+Tuck: This Kimberly Ovitz cardigan and Elizabeth + James wedges are making my millenium right now.
Asymmetry is a reoccurring theme in my closet, and as if you couldn't tell already, it's one of my favorite ways to go when styling an ensemble.

Asymmetry is inherently awkward (much like yours truly), but what makes an awkward detail here or there great is that it gives you a moment to move away from what is comfortably fluid and predictable, and pay a little bit more attention to your surroundings. Maybe it's not as deep as I'm making it seem, but I always appreciate something that moves away from the norm in favor of quirk. My favorite designs are always those that keep your brain sharp and attentive; you'll expect a line to go one way, but it eschews and goes another. This cardigan is a fairly substantial garment with its weight and volume, but the cashmere flows and the draping is really fun to play with. If you look closely, you'll see two straps at either end of the sweater. These straps can be buckled into the neck any number of ways, making it fun to play around with as far as proportion goes.

The shoes are my faaaavorite heels right now. I wasn't able to afford these puppies when they were new, but the power of recycling makes a lot of things possible, and thankfully I was able to Tuck 'em.
