This month we choose sweaters for our theme as it is exactly the season to wear them! Well depends on where you live of course…..
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc.
But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Sweaters!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
I loved the color of this green sweater from Torrid but they only had it available in a size that was much too big for me. Bought it anyway and I love wearing it as a dress or over skinny jeans. I even lounge around the house in it frequently because it is so soft and cozy. Definitely a good buy even in the wrong size.

It’s definitely a good buy wanted this rust color to add to my wardrobe.

I’m going to nominate this sweater as “Goodby.” While it doesn’t look too bad in this photo, the banding accentuates the “fluff” in my middle. Depending on the rise of my pants it can look pretty bad!
Of course here is Jodie of jtouchofstyle
As a knitter, I just adore sweaters and have been showcasing them most Saturday’s on Instagram. It’s a fair isle design and the yarn is from Iceland!

Here is a sweater I bought from Old Navy in the fall. I get compliments every time I wear it. Probably because it is brighter than most things I wear!! I have paired it in this photo with a corduroy skirt, gray tights and paisley skirt from Loft Outlet. And some very old purple shoes.
Sweet Sonja of Beautysome
I love to wear sweaters! I can’t live without them.
Last year I bought 10 new ones! And I have chosen the most stylish ones for this theme!
This one is with lace! I love lace and black so this was a win win situation when I found this one on holiday last year in Germany.

This cozy sweater was a good buy! Bought at my daughter’s eco-boutique in Seattle.
And finally my Good Buy sweater
I love a black and white striped top or sweater, always have one in my closet. This one I bought a few years ago and I loved it so much. It was so stretchy and it had pearl buttons! I totally worn it out. Still need another one!
February’s theme will be: Copy Cats!
To celebrate our 3 year anniversary of this series, we have chosen a theme that is a little different than normal. Send us your favorite “style steals” or outfits inspired by someone else, another blogger or even a friend. If you can create a side by side collage of the outfit that inspired you with your recreation of it and a brief description of who inspired you and why, we will feature it on February 15. If you do not know how to create a collage, just send us both photos and we will create it for you.
Shelbee and I will copy each other to celebrate our Anniversary!
Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com
