Welcome to November’s edition of The Bad Buy Book! This month’s theme is: Cardigans!
The Bad Buy Book is a series hosted by Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge and Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style. We wanted to establish together something fun and new. We both talked about our,,Sitting Shoes,, and so we came up with the idea for The Bad Buy Book!
We all do our best to look great in our outfits, choose the right accessories, the right makeup, the perfect shoes, and wait for the best light to shoot the most flattering outfit photos. And now we are asking you to show us the items you don’t feel your very best in. You know, those ,,Sitting Shoes,, that dress that is actually not quite your color, the skirt that is a size too small but the saleswoman said it looked amazing. We all own those items! And while they may look fabulous, they don’t always feel fabulous! So we want you to show us your bad buys and tell us the story about them! What made you purchase the item? And why do you dislike it now? And why not share them with us? We buy these things for a reason then hide them in the back of the closet. Now it’s their turn to share the limelight.
Every month on the 15th, we will both publish a post sharing the photos you have sent us along with a few sentences about the bad buy. Photo submissions will be due by the 1 st of each month so we have time to edit and compile all of the entries. At the end of each post we will let you know the theme for the next month’s post. Photos and the story of your ”Bad Buy” can be emailed to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put”Bad Buy” in the subject line.
Let’s take a look at our Bad Buy Cardigans!
First my always lovely and supportive co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the EdgeI couldn’t resist this chunky knit kimono style cardigan on clearance from Target. I loved the light blue color and the fringed hem and the cozy style, but it is kind of frumpy. I still wear it often when I just want to be cozy, but there is no way to avoid the frump factor in this one!This black and white polka dot cardigan is one of my favorites, so I guess it isn’t really a bad buy…except that it is way too small and has been since the day I bought it. I just have to always wear it open with only a very light layer underneath it.
Nancy:(I remember when you showed it on the blog, I loved this outfit very much and I searched for a cardigan like that myself, without succes)
And here is Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style
I’m actually submitting my step mom, Nancy’s photo for your challenge!!
This cardigan was just too big for her, and she actually ended up giving it to my husband to wear. (Don’t tell her, but since it’s in my closet, I actually wear it around the house too since it’s so warm). So it may have been a bad buy for her, but a good thing for me—ha ha!!!
And this is also such a awfull one! Why? I just don’t like purple! Any shade of purple!
I hope you enjoyed our Bad Buy Book serie! Next month’s theme is: Bags!
