OOD 4.25.09 - The Crosshatch in Light Pewter

I love my new Crosshatch.  I had been wanting a cardigan in pewter and this one turned out to be a great basic with a nice bit of interest added from the basketweave silk chiffon detailing along both sides of the front placket.  The detailing on my cardi is much straighter and not as poofy as in the catalog pic - less "ruffly".

It is a very thin merino wool - you can clearly see the strap of my ON ribbed tank through it - but I am fine with the weight for Spring and Summer.  This was originally $125.00 and came in this Light Pewter, Dusty Rose, and Beechwood.  It is now marked down to $79.99 on the website, and I was able to use my red card on the red phone to get an additional 25% off and free shipping, so I am happy with the deal!

  1. Love the cardi, love the outfit - you look fantastic!!

  2. Such a pretty cardi, and I love it with the purple bag!

  3. Thanks y'all! I have enjoyed wearing it already :)

  4. Love this!!!! It's a nice change, other than a regular "jackie" cardi----and i love the color!! (love the purple purse you are craving, too, heehee) i really want a cardi in light pewter, too........hmmmmmmm....

  5. Lovely outfit. The crosshatch is a great cardi, I've tried it on some time ago but was still at $99, so I didn't buy it. Now I'm too much into summer clothes (plus I bought the pleated chiffon in putty from a JCA last week) but I know that I will kick myself for not buying it next year!
