Halogen ribbed cardigan (measurement small) // Completely LOVE this cardigan, such a reasonably knit, love the extra details on the edges and sleeves. Long cardigans can add visual bulk, but this one doesn’t; it’s very flattering and slenderizing. I find ribbed cardigans are greatest for this.

The standard is respectable — typical Halogen. It’s a viscose/nylon/polyester blend with only a kiss of cashmere (5%) so it’s not as smooth as a pure cashmere sweater, but I don’t find it scratchy in any respect. It’s an excellent worth for the worth point, especially on sale.

I actually like the sharp toe, and the 3″ heel could be very walkable. They do run small, although; I sometimes put on an eight in Camuto booties, so I ordered the eight 1/2, as the website indicated they run small, and I feel I might truly use a 9, but I’ll make do with these until they get restocked.
