Off-Duty Dressing X A Monday Giveaway

Happy Monday! Mondays are a drag that’s why I am giving you a chance to turn the frown upside down and win a cozy cashmere sweater from the fancies at Christopher Fischer.

I don’t know about you, but if you’re in the fashion business or are just so into it, you’ve been hiding under a proverbial rock of the warmer months of spring and summer. Whites, fringe and florals have been hitting the NYC runways hard, and have now moved onto London. But Fall is the here and now and whether you live in a big city or a small town, back to school and the concept of shopping for Fall clothes is stressful. There’s more than ever to choose from, and before you can say, “OMG, Miley released her new sex tape!” or “Alexander Wang just released WHA???” Find your size in that make-my-life-perfect, black, suede, bootie? Sold Out. WTF, right? Yes, I hear ya.

What am I craving right now? Besides new booties, a great color blocked bag, and several new pairs of socks, nothing holds a candle to a great cashmere number. That is precisely why I have decided to team up with Christopher Fischer and their fantastic new styles that’ll keep you feelin’ cozy and lookin’ chic throughout the season.

While fit is obviously key, the one thing I really look for in a great cashmere sweater is the snuggle factor. After all, who doesn’t want their knits to feel more like blankets when temps take a nosedive? I’m a big proponent of keeping warm. Layers outside. Layers on my bed. Layers on a salad. Layers on a bagel. Layering is good on a crisp fall day in New York when browsing through SoHo. There’s just something to be said about combining three C’s: cashmere, cuteness, and coziness all on the same page.

As it happens with giveaways, there can only be one winner, but you’re all winners in my heart. So in addition to potentially acquiring a brand new sweater, I will also bestow immeasurable knowledge upon all of you. And money can’t buy that. Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to layer a penguin sweater with a vest and a dance to show for it.

    how great! I have not worn an animal on my body since …. well… since i wore a micky mouse sweater to school. Maybe it;s time to start doing that again. Moreover your look is both fun and chic – great inspiration! And i hope i will be finally adding a pure cashmere thing to my wardrobe.

  3. What is there not to love? I love animals!!! This kind of a sweater is so fashionable and the fact that it is cashmere would make me never want to take it off, ha. I love your blog and how much I grab inspiration from it! Shared this post on my FB wall, xo Kristina

    I think the way you styled the penguin sweater is super gorgeous with the cf vest and see by chloe booties. The only thing better than deliciously soft cashmere is cashmere with a cute animal printed on it. I have this vision in my mind of a cute penguin or fox sweater with some furry ear muffs and a cup of cocoa at a skating rink under the stars. Would be bliss 🙂
