WIW - Very pink Angie pick sweater

When Angie showed this affordable ($60) Zara sweater I knew I had to own  it.  I got stared at in this --  probably because it's very pink and the curved hemline, roomy fit and drop shoulder seam aren't the norm here yet.  I think this actually called more attention towards me than the pajama jeans the day before.

I am very pleased with the sweater, it's 100% cotton and has the feel of a $200 garment.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

    Love it! It looks amazing on you… and also looks super comfy. What more could you ask for?

  • MsMary replied 6 years ago

    Oh my gosh!  I love this!  And your photo seriously looks straight out of Vogue!

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    Love. So NOW.

    It will look great layered over a white shirt. 

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Ooh, I love it. I had my eye on it too but worried it might drown me. But if you are wearing it, perhaps not. Hmmmm....

  • viva replied 6 years ago

    CocoLion, are you very tall? You always look so fabulously tall.

    I love you in this sweater. I don't know that it is a color I would have imagined you jumping on but that's probably because I am still learning everyone's style...but you were so right to get it. Looks so, so wonderful on you. And its outsizedness (not a word, but you know) keeps it from being too sweet. Love it.

    I do think that I might be swallowed up by it tho. (Hence the height question.)

    love it on you! great color, shape (I like the curve at the bottom and interesting dropped sleeves) and knit texture.

    Love this on you! I think you got stared at because you look so fab, Denise, nothing else. It is a gorgeous pink, but I would have to dip my toes in it with accessories first, I think. I'm very new to pastels - haven't worn them in 25 years:) (Well now I feel old).

  • LACeleste replied 6 years ago

    Yes,  they look because you are beautiful.

    I am really enjoying your WIWs lately.  Time has been scarce and I wish I commented more. That amazing sweatshirt the other day! Now this pink vision!  You have wonderful style!

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    For those interested if you can pull this off:  I'm not tall, I'm 5'4" right now my weight is hovering about 118.

    I love it!

  • Mona replied 6 years ago

    ooooh! You look so adorable in this sweater. The fit and colour are perfect on you.

  • unfrumped replied 6 years ago

    So great with your blonde hair!

  • Ariadne replied 6 years ago

    This looks great on you!  I'd love to see it without the collared shirt, too (just out of curiosity, not because it looks bad that way).

  • gryffin replied 6 years ago

    Pretty!!  So lovely with the blue pants and shirt.  Love with your hair!!  Just lovely!

    I think this looks good!

  • carter replied 6 years ago

    Fantastic color on you!

  • Jewell replied 6 years ago

    Such an interesting sweater in a lovely color- of course they stared! I think it looks great on you. And 5'4", really? I would have bet money that you were taller than me (5'7"). I would have guessed 5'9" from the photos you post.

  • SarahTheWhite replied 6 years ago

    You look great in this sweater, and I agree... I would have thought you were taller!

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    It is very pink and very cool! This is a very flattering color for you Denise and you make it look even cooler than it is !

  • Parsley replied 6 years ago

    I love it!
    It reminds me so much of this one that I had on my Pinterest board.

    You look terrific in it!

  • Thistle replied 6 years ago

    You look terrific, and what a fab find. A terrific quality, totally now sweater for $60? Total steal!

    It looks great!  I love the color on you.

  • Marley replied 6 years ago

    My jaw just dropped to the floor.  You look stunning Denise!  This color is so good on you - and I love the style - oversized, dropped shoulders, etc.  Headed on over to Zara's website right now!  ;-)

  • Theodora replied 6 years ago

    You look amazing! Your dog looks like he/ she is guarding you from the paparazzi :)

  • Marmee replied 6 years ago

    Very pink!  It looks great with your hair.  

    I thought you were 5' 8" or 9"!

  • replied 6 years ago

    Oooo, I love that it's 100% cotton and has a luxurious feel! Now that's what I call a good (fashion) value! YLF!

  • Debbie replied 6 years ago

    This looks great on you. Love the bright color.

  • rachylou replied 6 years ago

    Wow! Gorgeous!

  • Adelfa replied 6 years ago

    The pink is so perfect for greeting Spring! A great silhouette with your jeans too.

    To the fabbers--Cocolion says she looks tall because of her small head. This may be true but it's also because of her long legs!

  • shemarie replied 6 years ago

    I saw this on the Zara website and thought it was okay, but seeing it on you? Wow!! I adore this look/silhouette and am having a hard time wanting to wear anything else, so of course I love, love, love it! And the color is so beautiful and fresh on you!  I love your style!

  • Lantana replied 6 years ago

    Like how you've paired it with plaid.

  • Scarlet replied 6 years ago

    I LOVE that color. *attack of the wantsies*

  • Vicki replied 6 years ago

    Gorgeous, Denise, and if I could grab it off your back, I would, but you look too good in it!  I love the curved hem, the pretty vibrant color and especially the 100% cotton factor.  Nicely done.

  • Lisa replied 6 years ago

    Gorgeous pink color and I like the hemline here too, nice addition to your wardrobe.

  • annagybe replied 6 years ago

    Ok first off, that's a great photo. Love the sweater on you.
