PINK FUZZ

Monday, 8 October 2012







Unlike what seems like 99% of the population, I'm not the biggest fan of Lana del Rey. The pink mohair jumper she's wearing in the H&M's ubiquitous latest campaign, however, got me a leeetle bit excited. I've been on the hunt for the perfect pastel pink mohair/angora knit for years, only ever finding unflattering batwing numbers in charity and vintage shops.

I preordered in September and a few days ago, it arrived, in all its fuzzy glory. I kept it on long enough to snap these photos but had to remove it pretty sharpish - it was an ITCHFEST in there. I'm thinking I need to invest in a high-necked, long-sleeved t-shirt to wear underneath to prevent the onset of hives. What we do for fashion, eh?

  2. Oh me, no..I am not a fan of her but the knitwear does look lovely!
    I was just a little worried they look like they would stretch/lose shape quickly? But so pretty!
    Your hair looks amazing... so thick! x

  3. I can't STAND Lana Del Rey, and I think she's massively creepy in the H&M ads! That's a cute jumper though! x

  4. It looks so cute on you! Sadly I'm allergic to wool so even if I wore a long-sleeved, high-necked top underneath my eczema would still rear it's fugly head! Have you noticed this winter though that it's nearly impossible to find a highstreet knitted jumper or cardigan (that is actually flattering) that doesn't have bloody wool in it? Maybe it's just me and my obsession with checking the labels of clothes... It seems that the days of jumpers made of synthetic fibres are over :(
    Much love, Bemsy x
