I have been wearing it out loud.
The Bella Freud, sweater that is.
I have been crushing on these slogan sweaters for some time now; I am not exactly sure why, I simply have. They look pretty great over any pair of pants and help transform the all black with that extra little edge.
I started with the classic “1970” and it was one of those sweaters that everybody complimented. Mine is the black and white and as a wear-black-nearly-every-day girl it came in very handy. There is something striking about these knits and plus they are the right kind of size; not too big and not too small.
When the finer, slightly Lurex model came out this season I fell for that one too. It is a lighter weight and falls well with all types of trousers.
Did I ever think I would “wear it out loud’? Not really, actually not at all. If you asked me about appearing with slogans across my chest I would have replied quite negatively. Now, I can’t get enough of these sweaters and consider them a collector’s item. That’s the fickle side of fashion, or of me in this case.
These Bella Freud sweaters are hard to come by; they sell out as fast as they re-stock. I am still umming and ahhring over the dog illustration; I think it’s a must for the sweater collection.
When I packed for this trip I also included the lightweight Lurex sweater and the merino wool style; I am very grateful as the weather has been nowhere near as hot as I thought. They have come in handy every day. I may have worn the same piece each evening but I have been cosy and again, this sweater is a fun talking point.
With Bella Freud I find it is a case of never too many; they are dangerous little sweaters. Really. ;) xv
