Shoe Cardigan Smackdown!
I've always had a thing for shoes. Blame it on my genes.
My mom is full-on Filipina. Never mind that she only has about 10 pairs of shoes and I have maybe, um, ten times that. As far as I know, Imelda Marcos is no relation.
Shoes are my passion, my vice. I don't just love 'em on my feet, either. I have shoe necklaces, tanks covered in mini high heels and a T-shirts with shoes. So when I saw Anthro's Imelda cardigan over at Respect the Shoes, I had to have it. Kinda. It's $98.
I did what any good shopper on a budget would do: hunted for a cheaper alternative. Forever XXI has a pretty decent $14 cardi (Product Code: 2072161062).
It's a little thick for spring, but seems well-made. Since it's Forever XXI, I opted to be safe and order a medium. I can't decide if the mix-n-match buttons look cute or cheap, but it's got shoes on it and it was under $20. How can I complain?
