Is six too many?
I love J Crew's Merino Lea cardigan. It all started with one if my first J crew purchases; a lea in melon. That lead to the discovery that I could layer! I had always though I was a simple dresser who didn't have enough fashion sense to layer. With this cardigan's low v-neck, I was forced to layer. I discovered that the cardigan looks great with a blouse and pearls and a tee and jeans. And the buttons,they were oh so pretty and shinny.
Next came the lea in navy. The button were more subdued, but still just as nice. This one looked great with camis, green tees and crisp white dress shirts. But I still needed more. Dark peony came next. It had a small tear in it, but I didn't care. I loved it so much, I would fix whatever it needed.
In the last couple of days, I have ordered the lea in desert brown, citron yellow, and the elusive black. This will be my 10th attempt to order the black. Let's hope this bad boy ships. I have to wonder, when will it be enough? I think I'm still hankering after the gray, white and green. Will people start to wonder about me when I start wearing the same sweater in different colors everyday? Oh Lea, how you complete me.
