At least, I think it was a present because I can never really be sure if things my mother gives me are cast-offs that she bought enthusiastically only to come home and find out that they didn't fit or she didn't actually like the design.
I sometimes come home to find the strangest, most ill-fitting pieces on my bed and my onspring (if you are an offspring you must have sprung from an onspring, no?) trying to make a very convincing case of how she picked them out specially for me. My mom is charitable that way.
ANYROAD. When my mother traipsed home and told me she'd picked out a bat wing cardigan for me, I believed her. And I continue to believe her to this day because it fits like a dream.
Batwing cardigan - "Present" from mother.
Maxi dress - Isetan. Sandals - Clementi Central. Earrings - Accessorise.Bracelets - Fie Japan, Diva. Cotton tote - Free gift, Tangs.
I love its mushroomy-gray colour, I love how the sleeves are baggy and wingy but come together at the cuffs and I love how prettily it falls even when its open.
PS I bought the rabbit bracelet at the coolest accessories shop in Ion Orchard called Fie Japan. I'm probably a little late to the game because I notice it has other outlets already, but if you haven't checked the shop (at Basement 3) out, it's worth a look.
The jewellery, particularly the earrings, are beautiful with the finest wire and the smallest, most delicate beads I have ever seen. It's expensive, about $30 - $50 for a pair of earrings, a bracelet or a necklace, but if you're looking for something different and pretty, give yourself a treat.
