Grandma's cardigan

There are a few pieces in my wardrobe like today's cardigan that I bought because they are a challenge ( to me ) to style. I call this cardi a grandma's cardi because  much older women wear them in Greece. I challenged myself to give it a different style. This is what I came up with.

In this post you can also see in all it's glory one of my diy disasters.It happened when I decided to shorten the most expensive (120 euros)pants I own , myself. I hemmed more than I should and destroyed the pants.

This swapped bracelet is not of extraordinary quality but has become a staple with me lately because I love its design and how it stays in one place when put on. I hate bangles that don't fit and are ready to slip of my wrist any time.My wrists are so thin that it's difficult to find something that fits. Tell me you have the same problem!

This is how I've worn it in 30 for 30 challenge automn 2010. I still have 7 more attempts to go.


  1. You did a great job with the sweater! It looks VERY UN old ladyish! I hate to hear that about your pants....ugh! I hate when I mess up a DIY. I've learned not to mess with anything that I'm not okay with destroying! :) Hugs to you! ~serene

  2. Such a small think. ;-) But such a great idea
