is this not ridiculously gorgeous? and it is even almost cold enough to wear it! which i did.

close ups here & here & here. and do look because the detail is beguiling. i don’t know all the terms so feel free to correct me [Mandy] but the body is a net-like knit, there is cabling running along the sleeves and the body and right into the ribbed hem [which seems to drive Mandy crazy, which is totally understandable], big scoop cabled neckline so i can layer galore, a cute yet gruff toggle, puffed sleeves, and a beautiful finish on the sleeves that draws them in, which i really love.

.sweater designed & knit by Mandy aka Yarnageddon. see her blog & flickr. and her new Yarn Bombing book which just came out!
.ebayed vintage black leather corset/tank, it’s like a leather boy thing for a leather girl.
.AA long tank
.thrifted 80s deadstock jeans that are LOOONG
.thrifted 70s vintage knee high black leather stiletto boots

She did a wonderful job! I’m actually just finishing up a knitted tunic with a similar neckline. Pictures this week…

Thanks for the comment. The shoes are incredible…but probably incredibly hard to walk in haha. Your combination of textures here with the sweater and corset is brilliant.
