sorelle in[spired]: the feather sweater




Okay, you all know Sally and I have stolen many things from our Mommy's closet, but this sweater is of the greatest things that closet houses.

This is what we refer to as "the" sweater, the "feather sweater," which we've always admired in one particular photo of our Momma. It was handpicked and purchased by our Grandma, and has withstood (now three!) generations of stylish women approval (yes, we're including ourselves in that count..)

Now for the dramatic reveal..


Feast your eyes on feathery perfection..


And now for the photo! Our beautiful Mommy, ever more gorgeous than I'll ever look rocking the sweater:



vintage sweater (stolen from mommy's closet), michael michael kors suede shorts (stolen from sally - available here), missoni for target zigzag tights (available here), vintage fendi bag (gift from grandma - similar style here), ralph lauren suede coat (similar style here), gold bracelet (stolen from mommy's closet - similar style here), nine west booties (similar style here), rolex watch


..I seriously need a tan.
