My New Favorite Cardigan!! (courtesy of Norma Kamali)

As most of you know, there are many high-end designers collaborating with stores such as Target, Walmart and JC Penney to create affordable designer lines for the masses. When I initially heard about the Norma Kamali line at Walmart, I wasn't all that excited. This was partially due to the fact that I've rarely ever bought clothing from Walmart. I still went ahead and visited to see what the Norma Kamili's line had to offer. There were a few standout pieces but I immediately fell in love with the Athletic Batwing Cardigan. The batwing sleeves coupled with the cocoon-like shape created a sweater like any other I had ever seen. Unfortunately, they were all sold out. So, when I saw it in person on Black Friday, I was beaming because a) it was the only one in the store and b) although it was a medium, it fit like a glove! The quality was much higher than I had expected. Although it's cotton-blend jersey (think PhysEd uniform), I could envision dressing it up or down. I've already worn it with skinny jeans as well as tweed shorts and received many compliments on both occasions. I went to a few days ago and noticed they had restocked the cardigan and in every color! I currently own the black but now want the red and cobalt blue. It is also available in light pink, light grey, dark brown and cream.

Now, if you plan on ordering this cardigan, I suggest you order a size down. I'm normally a Large but, as previously mentioned, the Medium fits perfectly. It's available for $18, which means that you can afford to get any and every color your little heart desires. That being said....Happy Shopping!!
