MINKPINK Cut Out Sweater

As the fashion world begins to look to spring trends, I love that I am able to find a lot of really cool sweaters on sale. In fact, sweaters are one thing I like to buy from around Christmas time and after because many of them usually are on sale for great prices. I always seem to be in luck when looking for all kinds of sweaters. I get most excited when I find brightly patterned sweaters and unique black sweaters.

This time around I found a MINKPINK sweater on a sale rack. There were two different sizes, a large and small, but they had two different prices. The large was marked at only 35% off and the small was marked at 50% off - for the exact same sweater. It really pays to look at the entire sales rack to make sure you are getting the best price possible. Had I not looked, I would have missed it. So I asked the woman working at the store about it and she said she'd honor the 50% in the event I needed the larger size.

Well, I am happy to say because I am on the smaller side of life, the small fit much better. This is actually the second item I own from MINKPINK, (the other being my floral pants - shown here - which I did purchase from ModCloth) and both are smaller than my normal size. I had to alter the pants so they would fit (I bought a large and needed a medium). I usually where a medium in sweaters for a regular size fit, but even that size here would have been too big. Another deal breaker with the size was the sleeve length in the small fit much better because the large went over my hands. Although it's not easy to see, but it has metallic teal yarns woven throughout. But I am overall happy with my purchase!
