A couple months ago Value Village sent me to one of their newly opened locations in Markham to do some shopping. If you haven't seen any of my Value Village fashion challenges before you can check them out here and here. In the past I would give myself a budget to style a look from head-to-toe but his time I decided I wanted to find single pieces to style with what was already in my closet. Today I reveal look 2.
Some of you are going to love it and a lot of you are going to hate it. Today's VV find is this sweater (if you can call it that). Black and white leather blocks were stitched together to create pure awesomeness. It was my sister that pulled it from the racks with a smirk on her face and while at first I felt unsure the other half of me thought 'well if anyone can pull it off it's me'. When I tried it on I said if it's under $8 I'll buy it. My sister reached for the tag and said "$7.99". Let's be serious monochrome is still hot on the fashion scene and while this may not be your average piece you would find in the store you can't deny it looks pretty sick styled as an athletic look as I did. Love or hate I'm glad I had the courage to bring this piece home with me!
