My Free People Ottoman Slouchy Tunic Sweater arrived!!! You may remember my Impulse Purchase post from last week about it. I was feeling so many mixed feelings about this sweater because it is most definitely on the expensive side for an impulse purchase and I was hoping I’d hate it so I could return it. I was also feeling annoyed at myself for ordering something that would surely end up giving me a chore of having to do a return. When I picked it up I was sort of surprised – I loved it at first peek, but I wasn’t getting my hopes up. The material looks like it’s a bit rough, but it’s actually very soft and cozy without being too warm or heat trapping. This shade of pink is just magical and somehow feels very Christmasy to me, like you’d wear this while standing by a tinselled Christmas tree sipping on a martini.
I held out hope that this oddball oversized sweater would just be a nightmare fit on me, but when I tried it on it just looked so stylish and very tidy for something so oversized. I absolutely love the open neckline – I am a hater of turtlenecks and won’t even wear a cowel neck but this neckline is just perfect and didn’t’ feel like it was suffocating me. I am a size 10/12 in Lululemon and I sized down to a medium in this and it’s still very oversized. On my short 5’4 height it’s butt-covering length in the size down, but if you are taller than me you may not get complete butt coverage in a size or two down. If you are petite I recommend maybe trying two sizes down in this. I love that this can be dressed up with jeans and heels, or dressed down with leggings and cute boots. If you are looking for a pretty yet cozy sweater to wear to Christmas festivities (and something photogenic for seasonal pictures) definitely give this sweater a try. I think it’s especially great because it’s a cotton knit and not wool which so many people are allergic to. It comes in so many pretty colors from neutrals to jewel tones. The red and the teal, are going on my Christmas wish list for sure!
Since a reader just let me know that it’s on sale and with an additional 20% off (and ships to Canada!), I went ahead and ordered the ribbed tunic sweater in black.
