Long black and white fringe cardigan

Yes, this is January in Ontario, photos taken on the weekend. We had several milder days and almost all the snow has melted!


It was even mild enough to wear my long “wully” cardigan. I call it wully because it’s cozy and warm like wool (and even softer). However, it’s acrylic, which means no itch and no cruelty.


I have a fascination: anything with fringes, I’m a ’60s kinda girl.

A scarf keeps me warm and adds style to an outfit. It’s a fun and functional fashion accessory.


Who can turn the world on with her smile?

Mary Tyler Moore December 29, 1936 – January 24, 2017

One of my favourite actresses and animal rights advocate.

A smile is the best thing we can wear.

    Great look! The grey and black still has a hint of Winter appeal but the pop of red says you’re ready for Spring.
    And smile really is the best thing you can wear.
    You look fantastic Carmen. Can you please send some warm weather to my side of the country.

    Per some TV experts, fringes are fashionable again, and so is your silvery soft cardigan. It looks great on you, my dear Carmen!
    Smile, there are two more months (only!) and happy spring will be here! ☺️
    I miss dancing with you, meine liebe Freundin!
    ❤️ Ileana

      Meine liebe Freundin, I miss you too! What a good title that would have been for my post! Fringes are Fashionable! You’re quite right, the black and white gives a silver impression and it is the softest cardigan I have. 🙂

    How strange to see your city in January without snow. It’s not the scenery I imagine for you these days. The knit jacket is cute, and your explanation about the acrylic point and non-cruelty of wool is perfect for you and for everyone. I love your red shoes, one of those signs of distinction in your looks, that way of calling our gaze to your little feet. Monochrome looks always look perfect on you, the black all, of course, is no exception. Some take it to look thinner, you obviously do not need to do that, your figure is perfect. I love your foulard, matching your gray eyes … Another wonderful look from the most wonderful woman. I also felt the death of Mary.

      Thank you very much Josep-Maria! You’re always so encouraging! I’m hoping spring will come soon. It is really wonderful to share the same values with fashion: ethical fashion that is fair to the garment workers and without animal cruelty.

      Mary had a beautiful smile, she wore capris and ballet flats like Audrey. 🙂 Both were remarkable and beautiful women!

      Have a happy week!

    Carmen, you know I AM a cardigan girl and just loooooove my cardigans. I would love that one too. I got my Icelandic style one on at the moment. Glad you have it a bit warmer. It was freezing yesterday with an icy wind, all frozen this morning but it is supposed to get a bit warmer, yay. I have almost the same necklace as you with a leaf on, that long too. perfect for jumpers I find. Love the red shoes with it too! Hopefully Spring comes soon as we almost finished January!

      Thank you so much Ute! Your Icelandic cardigan must be beautiful. I think long necklaces look great with jumpers. Two more months of winter, can’t wait!

      Have a wonderful week!

    That cardigan is perfect for the colder weather (or even when it’s a little warmer like you’re having!). But my fave part about this outfit is the bright shoes! That’s my idea of a great pop of color!!
