Rated 5 out of 5Â by Alnilam Adorable!
I bought this sweater during the 30% promotion and I adore it! I love that the heart design is a little abstract and the colors are muted. I'm also happy to report that the striations in the knit vary from sweater to sweater: mine does NOT have the sort of glaring white/grey striations on the central heart as shown in the product shot, but rather more subtle variations scattered around the sweater.
Comfort-wise, I found this cardi soft and very cozy, which is great because I have extremely sensitive skin. That's why I'm glad there's no wool in it, although others may raise their eyebrows at the price for a cotton blend sweater. Since there isn't any wool in it, it would be nice if this sweater were machine-washable, but I would probably hesitate to put it in the washer anyway.
A few minor issues: the buttons are wood, which looks great, but makes them annoying to do up. Not a big problem for me, but I thought I'd mention it. I do think the patch pockets tend to add a little bulk at the waist, which is unfortunate, but I don't think it's too noticeable.
Overall, I'm very happy to have gotten this sweater at a (slight) discount and I think it will be a great fall & winter staple for me!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by peanutbutter very nice sweater, a little tight in the arms
I got this to wear with the striped Given Then Gathered dress and it looks great! The arms are a little tight, so if you're large there, this may not work for you.

This cardigan is so soft and comfortable, so don't try it on unless you want to wear it all day. It fits TTS, my usual XS was fitted and flattering, yet roomy enough to layer. (I'm 5'1"/105lbs) It fits just like the model shot. Cardigan falls to top of hip and sleeves are a good length. The pockets are a cute detail, and the print is fun and youthful, but the colors make it a bit more sophisticated. It looks great with jeans, or it can be dressed up with a pencil skirt. Plus it is so soft and a great alternative if you don't like wool. Love it.
