My Helmut Lang steal!

My newest designer find: a Helmut Lang sweater

 

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.
