Oh, CC! It's like Cardi heaven! I love cardigans and wish I could get all of these! The stripes, the animal prints, the ruffles and the bows, the floral and the sheer black one - are all the ones I especially love!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend, CC! xx

Wanderlusting said...

I think long cardigans (boyfriend ones, if you will) is one of the best trends this year...I love it!

ONLY problem is trying to pair it with a jacket...the longness hanging out from under a short jacket looks silly (IMO) so you have to wear a coat. Unless you plan it so that's the point (ie dark coat, bright cardy).

meraldia said...

Great post, Carrie, many details and information! I love those little toppers and I wear them daily because I hate air-condition so much!

La Belette Rouge said...

I cannot wait for it to be cardigan weather. J Crew has a few that are calling my name.

Diego R. Wyatt said...

Happy Monday CC! I am a cardi-addict and I love the idea of a cardigan over a great dress. The Moschino Cheap & Chic Resort is wonderful. I also love the ASOS sleevless cocoon cardi. The Dior lace cardi is quite sexy, but still elegant. Great pics.

HEK said...

I'm a cardi lover, especially the long ones, for days when you can't be bothered with thinking about what to wear;)

freeteyme said...

love the Alexander Wang piece - sooo pretty!

The Anthology said...

As much as I love fall, I'm heartbroken that I have to start dressing in warm clothes already (it's October weather in Vancouver right now).

Cute, cute cardis, though!

HiFashion said...

I've recently developped an obsession for cardis. I never knew they could be so much fun to wear. I wore a bright yellow one (with an all black outfit) to work today and I loved the feeling of standing out.

Choo said...

Moschino rocks!!I need a cardigan next season.xoxo

Always & forever will love them. I saw two killer one's the other day both with fronts, solid w/sequins by Mongo & one by Tory Burch.They were stunning. Thanks for the terrific inspiration.

Cammila said...

Oh I just LOVE a feminine little cardi -- and those demure little leopard print ones are the best. They make me think of some 50's dame named Flo, waiting at a bus stop in cat's eye sunglasses.

Brigadeiro said...

Ooh! Am wearing a cardi as a type, haha! Love SO many cardi's here, especially the long-line cardi's & cocoon sleeveless ASOS...Cardi's are such a staple & so versatile! :)

K.Line said...

Oh, some gorgeous choices - the stripes, the animal print, that black lacy one!

Meg said...

I need to get a couple new cardis, as I am always cold in resturants. I'm really into animal print ones.

Noble Beeyotch said...

lovely cardis. How i wish i could wear them the year round! But, the tropical weather here in India doesn't give us the liberty to do so!

Hunters Glory said...

Love the AL Wang look --- sweater sexy fashion!

....and yes girl wonder, our bat mobile can fly and yet do so much more!
