Day #34 – Checkmate

Clothing Object: UNIQLO Purple cardigan


Rating: 7/10
So this outfit went from being a “going out to do errands” outfit to a “going to the hospital” (and not for work) one. In a turn of events, my sister had to get emergency surgery to extract her burst appendix. She’s fortunately doing well and I can put that night behind me. I think it was fortunate, in a sense, that I decided to wear something comfortable for that day considering how much waiting around emergency situations involve. I bought this cardigan last summer on a quick trip to NYC with a good friend. He’s a huge advocate of all things UNIQLO and ended up spending hundreds of dollars on pants and button downs. I bought 1 chambray shirt and this cardigan you see here. Heh. I do like this cardigan. At the time, I was on the hunt for a coloured cardigan to brighten up my otherwise monotone outfits. Unfortunately this purple was the brightest thing they carried and I came back to Toronto only to realize I own 2 other purple cardigans. I will keep it though because it’s exceptionally comfortable and light. I paired it with my layering staple checkered button-down chiffon top from H&M also seen in this post.

Verdict: Keep

Clothing Object: GARAGE Leopard print sweater

I was 99% sure this was going to end up in the donation bin. I put it on and voila, it still fit like a glove and was as comfy as ever. I haven’t worn this sweater since my Garage days (2010-2012) and now I’m sad I missed out on all the fun outfit opportunities to be had. I matched this sweater with the green babaton pants you’re all probably getting sick of, and my GAP yellow leather purse (now 25% off with GAPSAVE – in CANADA) which you are ALSO all probably getting sick of. Since these were taken after I got home from work I apologize for the poor lighting and difficulty seeing the green in the pants (also my pants need to be shrunk in the dryer to get rid of those weird jutting folds). As you can see, I’m determined to fend off the cold weather by wearing flats and hoping my toes don’t freeze off. Ignorance is bliss my dear friends. 

Verdict: Dammit… keep
