Twist Style Friday: Alvinda

Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.


 


It was a good day for wool in Toronto yesterday folks! I wore handknit socks and a scarf while working on the styling last night for this post. I almost packed away my wooly sweaters and accessories when I moved at the beginning of May, but spring here can be a tricksy sort of season.

 

Alvinda


If I had one right now, I would totally be wearing Alvinda. An all-over lace cardigan always looks pretty and put together, whether you pair it with an evening dress or with jeans. I'll admit to feeling very very lazy about putting together cute outfits (to wear myself) this week. I've been to three weddings in as many weekends, most of which had additional rehearsal dinners or Sunday brunches, and they were all extremely lovely, but I had to look cute pretty much all the time. On purpose! I will leave you with just one piece of advice from all these nuptial adventures; if a chef invites you to his wedding, you should go. The food will be marvelous. I took a picture of my plate, and I almost never take pictures of my plates.

Alvinda can go with you to a fancy occasion such as the wedding of a chef or other sort of elegant friend. Perhaps a whimsical teapot themed party? Brunch with friends?

I want all of those shoes, just so you know. You can also wear Alvinda more casually, with separates. Like so:

Now I better go get knitting. I give handmade gifts, and I am behind! The last of the three happy couples got an IOU.
