Patches

I am late to the patch game, so to speak. I have been drooling over any and all elbow patch tops, sweaters, jackets and cardigans for at least a year now. I could never find one online or in stores that wasn't too pricey or fit right...until now. 

Avery Lane Boutique Cardigan c/o // Forever 21 Buffalo Plaid Scarf sold out online (option here , here and here) // Forever 21 Tunic (option here and here) // Old Navy Distressed Denim (option here and here) // Forever 21 Ankle Boots // MoldCloth Satchel // Target Hat // Sweet Clover Bracelet c/o // Michael Kors watch c/o The Jeweler's Wife // Forever 21 Ring (option here)

This cardigan from Avery Lane Boutique was a match made in heaven. It fits like a glove and can be mixed and matched with so many pieces I already own. The fabric is soft, lightweight and will carry me into the spring season. I am wearing a medium and it gave me just enough room to layer a top underneath without the sleeves being too tight.

I must mention that I randomly, yeah right, popped into Forever 21 to do little scouring of their clearance section, all additional 30% off the clearance prices, and came across the very last buffalo plaid scarf they had in the store. It's not online, but I found an option for you. It's a men's scarf, but I have worn one of Ross's scarves before and there is ZERO difference between men vs. women. Buffalo plaid is probably one of the biggest trends going down at the moment and anything you find in it will be gone before you can blink. So, if you are in the market for a scarf like this, grab it now because tomorrow it will most likely be gone.

Today, Avery Lane Boutique, has so graciously offered one lucky lady to win a $40 shop credit to their store...plenty to help you grab this elbow patch cardigan I am wearing today. They sold out of it once, so don't wait too long to purchase. If you would like to shop now, get 20% off your order by using the code shanna20 at checkout.

Happy weekend and good luck!

I think it's quite a travesty that I do not own a single item with elbow patches! I need to fix this STAT! That cardigan is absolutely adorable.

Alyssa said...

Without fail, I will ALWAYS buy a sweater if it has elbow patches. I'm a sucker for them!

Brooke Hamilton said...

Your hat matches perfectly with the patches on the sweater. Love it!

F21 I always LOVE their stuff and never have the patience to shop there. I only get to visit them when I'm out of town. I WISH my mall had one. Last time I went was at Christmas - I walked in, walked around, looked at two things and then my head goes into sensory overload with all the stuff to see and touch!

I used to have MUCH more patience - your scarves are making me change my mind. This one and your other F21 scarf I am obsessed with - I hate they are both sold out!! Thanks for all the fun options.

I love most men's scarves - I almost purchased a buffalo check one from AE but then they sold out - I'm still kicking myself! :)

Thanks for the giveaway chance!!!!

Love your bag! I agree, finding the right patched arms is a difficult task! I haven't been able to find anything that suits my arm length + the way I like my tops to fit. Oh well, I'll keep searching.
