Loehmann’s just received a new shipment from Barney’s New York so being the manic window-shopper that I am I just had to check it out!
I saw quite a few Co-op by Barneys clothing as well as Kate Moss for Topshop sequin flapper dresses:
They were only $30 after all of the discounts but they only had sizes 8 through 12 so I didn’t bother…. Even if they had my size I’m sure the dress would look like a sequined potato sack on me.
Shortley thereafter I saw this deconstructed Helmut Lang crop sweater on the rack and I decided to try it on for kicks. Honestly I wasn’t exactly sure how to wear it! It has one obvious sleeve….and that’s it. It took me a few tries to finally figure out how to wear it.
In essence, this is a cowl neck, circle scarf, crop top, one-shouldered hybrid!
What it looked like on the rack: (strange, right?)
Here’s what it looks like on me:
The original price at Barneys:
What I paid:
92% off the original price? Yes please!
I’m really excited to wear it out since I generally wear a lot of black. The texture of the sweater is a nice contrast to a plain black knit or denim.
