Hot Lips & Cardigans

I'm seriously loving two things right now, hot lips and cardigans!

I've always had a love affair with cardigans paired with a matching or not matching camisoles or tanks, but when I came back from LA with two new cardigans from H&M, my love became pure LUST :P I hit up Target a few days ago to check out the Alice Temperley GO Collection and I saw a few cute things.... just more than I want to pay for at the moment. I get pure satisfaction from buying cute clothes at a great price (more money for MAC)! Anyways, my Honie has engrained in my head "Go to the sale section" LOL :) I found two super cute cardigans on sale that I thought I would share.

This one was on sale for $8 by Merona. I really like it because first off it's cotton & I love cotton :). Secondly, it's short sleeved! Yay! I paired it with a new camisole I bought from Banana Republic that's silk and was on sale for $14. I know my satchel is covering it up but that's the only picture that shows the full length of the top :(

The second one I bought was from the Libertine collection at Target, on sale for $14. It's so cute! It's navy blue with green trimmings and from the wrist to elbow it's green :) Too cute, I fell in love with it. And it's a cotton/cashmere blend. Those pesky papparazzi keep following me (LOL jk that's just my honie)!

  1. stephie, I <3 you and you're gorgeous, but I don't like how you post the exact same thing on both here and ABB. I mean, I get you can do what you want w/ both, but its kinda boring and repetitive. chel and may both have personal blogs chronicling their lives outside makeup. I'm not asking you to be like them, but you already write a makeup blog so I hope you can add some variety here as most of the people here are from abb

  2. i agree with you as far as posting the same thing on ABB as i do here, but the reason is because i do have other readers who aren't from ABB, people from youtube and specktra who aren't members of ABB. i know it's hard to see my other entries from in between my makeup stuff, but i do write about my normal life when i have the chance and when i have something to say. but i'll do what i can...

  3. I don't have a prob with the repeat posting. It's your blog and it's out of line to be told what to do with it--really not your job to entertain us.

    Anyway... I already commented on ABB, but looking at the cardigans again I'm reminded of how much I need to stop spending money on makeup so I can spend more money on clothes. lol.

  5. that green cardigan from libertine is definitely a cutie!! lol now u make me want to head to target! i love to bargain shop and it feels like ur hitting a jackpot if there's some great piece of clothing/makeup on sale! (reason why i also adore CCO!!! great place for discontinued MAC stuff and palettes!)

    btw, that 40s pink ls looks so pretty!!! is there anything else u can compare it to, stephie? just wondering b/c i don't like to duplicate things unless it's HG for me.

  7. I love your blog and I love reading ABB :)

    I'm addicted to cardigans too (especially those with matching shells) and would really love to buy all of J.Crew's cashmere ones just because they come in such pretty colors. However, considering the price, I think I'll just stick with good ol' Target for now ;)

    p.s. The Libertine cardi looks great on you.
