Varsity Sweater Dress


Was anyone else as obsessed with the Rag and Bone Talia v-neck sweater that paraded down the AW 2014 runway as I was?   The second I laid eyes on it, I wanted it in my closet.  It not only looked extremely cozy, but I loved the mix of masculine and feminine it possessed between the varsity stripes and plunging neckline.  However, I couldn't pull trigger on the $395 price tag.  Even though Nasty Gal had a pretty great dupe of the sweater, I never got around to buying it, and soon put it the sweater in the back of my mind.  That is until I walked into Forever 21 last week and made eye contact with this sweater dress.  Visions of fall raced through my head, and I knew I couldn't pass it up.  Not to mention the price can't be beat, as it's under $20!  I initially bought this dress to wear as an over sized sweater, so you'll be seeing me wearing it this fall with distressed jeans, but I do like it on its own with a great pair of booties.
