$9.97 Cardigan: Two Different Looks

I'm so happy with my $9.97 Halogen cardigan in Spiced Rose.  Now there is some life to my charcoal chambray shirtdress and a floral top I've had for years that I've never worn with anything but a crappy old black cardigan.

*I saw these perfectly dark mid-rise jeans on one of the episodes of What Not To Wear which aired last December.  The girl who got the makeover turned around to hug Stacy & Clinton and the camera captured her backside so I was able to spot the brand and style pretty well.  I have never been happier with a pair of jeans.  No bleaching; no whiskering; perfect mid-rise for my body type; simple, dark squiggle on the back pocket.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.


  1. I like the necklace, and that cardigan was a steal.

  2. The cardigan is fabulous. You have already styled it two different ways. It looks like that lovely color makes you happy!

  3. I am never happy with any jeans I buy. Being 5'3 1/2 is too tall for petite and too short for regular. Those look great on you, I need to go to Macy's and try them on!

  4. Both outfits are adorable! I went straight to the Nordstrom's site when you first mentioned those cardigans. They didn't have a good size selection by them. Hate to miss out on that. Your dress/cardigan combo is adorable and I love it with the jeans too.

  5. I adore both these outfits! Great use of color!

  6. Both these outfits are great but the 2nd one is THE BOMB!! You look fabulous!!

  7. Hey girl! Thanks for the comment, but more importantly is that the fabulous peach sweater I was wearing in the blog?? It is a halogen! Where do you buy them? Sure, I could google it.
    But I saw the tag and then read your blog and you are wearing what might be the pink version of my peach cardi! Great minds think alike!
    You look stunning in this color and I love the whole look.

  8. oh, Nordstrom....duh. LOL It's late. I still think it is very cool that we are both wearing Halogen cardi's!!!

  9. A pink cardigan- you are speaking my style language! :D Love it with both outfits. It's great when a piece is really versatile, isn't it? Those jeans are fabulous, too.

  10. What a great deal! The bunco outfit is a homerun! :)

  11. Rebecca, thanks! I love the necklace, too. The cardi was such a steal I had to buy two. I also got one in cobalt blue.

    Donna, yes, the color does make me happy!

    Pear, thanks! I love to wear color.

    Joy, I really love the second outfit, too. Thanks!

    Lise Marie, don't you just love Halogen? I think it's such a great brand. My pencil skirts are also by Halogen. Yep, only found at Nordstrom.

    ponchmor, definitely go try them on. These jeans may seem snug when you try them on but they do stretch quite a bit.

    Stacey, keep checking back on the cardi link. I went back a few times and they had more sizing.

    Allison, thank you! I'm finding I am learning how to make pieces more versatile. I never knew I could do this.

    Kelly, thanks! I felt great wearing this outfit at bunco.

  12. Love the jeans with the floral top and the pink cardigan ... I imagine it would be a lot draber with a black cardi. Great look on you.

  13. What a great punch of color with that cardi! We have a SA at our Loft that's like Clinton and Stacy rolled into one. LOVE when she's there she hooks me up and even gives my suggestions for things I buy elsewhere.
