I love Amazon wish lists! It makes shopping so quick and easy for everyone, and you are always going to get exactly what you want and need. I still consider gifts from my Amazon wish list a "surprise", because my list is pretty big, and I tend to forget everything I put on it, so when someone gets me a gift off my wish list it's always a surprise to me!
I have two clothing and accessory items from my children that I received as Christmas gifts this year that were off my Amazon wish list. The color block cardigan you may immediately recognize as I think just about every blogger in blog land owns it by now. The other item is the gorgeous faux leather brown bucket bag.
I've had my eye on this cardigan ever since I saw other bloggers wear it. Color blocking is super on-trend this year, so I really wanted at least one color block item in my wardrobe. I tried a color block cardigan from Stitch Fix, but I did not think it complimented my figure: wide stripes across a big chest is not flattering at all. I thought a color block cardigan might work better for me because there is a break in the chest area where the opening is.
I was absolutely correct in my assumptions. The openness of a cardigan is much more suited to my figure. The long length of this cardigan is also very elongating and slimming. But buyer beware, if you are petite this may not be the cardigan for you as it is very long. I'm 5'7 with a long torso and long legs and it comes to the top of my knees.
As for sizing, it's a little big. I'm wearing a medium, but I should have a small. It's a little big in the shoulders and I had to roll up the sleeves. I usually always wear a medium in everything, so I was surprised it was so big on me.
As for the quality, I have no complaints. It's absolutely stunning! I love the colors I'm wearing, but this cardigan comes in many other color patterns as well. I also love how thin the knit is. Anyone who is a regular reader of my blog knows I prefer thinner knits over chunkier knits. They are more figure flattering and not quite so warm.
My next Amazon gift was this Hobo Bucket Bag. I just LOVE this bag! My old brown purse was getting quite worn, so I really needed a huge one. This bag is so huge!
I pack up the whole house with me every time I go anywhere, so I need a huge bag. Every side of this bag is a little different so I included pictures showing all sides. I love this side zipper. The back of the bag also has a zipper pocket, and the front has a nice vertical detailing. It also has two strap options. The one I'm showing in this post is the shorter strap.
The bag is very high quality for faux leather, and it came with a nice dust bag fo storage and a sweet handmade gift inside. I love it when sellers are so thoughtful like that.
I highly recommend both of these Amazon purchases. You will find links to these items at the end of this post.
