Theory cashmere sweaters have been on my If I Could I Would list for quite some time. Meaning if we entered dreamland and $250.00 suddenly wasn’t an absurd price to pay for un sweater de cashmere (no I don’t speak a second language), I’d go for it.
A Theory cashmere sweater equates to winter awesomeness. It’s warm. It’s stylish. It’s what Nina Garcia might call “classic” on a shooting break from hawking shit for Target.
On the rare occasion I find a sweater of the Theory cashmere ilk at a thrift or resale shop, it’s either damaged, or it’s seen better days (this is understandable as it’s one of the few things women buy and actually wear). Hence the reason I’m particularly psyched to report the first epic score of 2010.
The below – from Buffalo Exchange – isn’t just a Theory cashmere sweater in mint condition.
It’s NEW. As in, still has its ORIGINAL TAGS.
It was way large for me, but I was so beside myself with glee that it mattered not. A $255.00 TAGS-ON NEW Theory cashmere sweater for $45.00?! This is the stuff of dreams, and it’s REAL! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!
I gifted it to Mom for her birthday last month, because I’m generous like that. I’m pretty sure she hasn’t taken it off since.
